Dead Space 3 Reviews pc
While Dead Space 3 is certainly a worthy successor in the series if you’ve been a fan up until this point, it doesn’t do as much as it probably could to really expand the formula. The game is more action-oriented than you might be expecting, both online and offline – and you’ll see this more the further you go, especially with how the environments change and how the enemies eventually start to use more than just their limbs and various spit attacks to damage you. Still, the game doesn’t go so far out of previously-set bounds, or at least not for long enough at a time, for any of this to really be an issue in my mind. As it often is with final entries in big trilogies, fans of the Dead Space franchise are well-served buying into this third game, and those who disliked the past two aren’t likely to be moved to a change of heart. But at this point in a trilogy, the most important thing is to keep things fresh for the built-in fanbase, and that’s something Visceral Games mostly accomplished, especially with the cooperative mode. They didn’t really add much more on top of all that, but I think that’s at least acceptable at this point, especially for the third game in a trilogy. Dead Space 3 won’t revolutionize horror games, but it’s still a fine horror-action game and a competent port on PC.
