Dead Space 3 follows recurring protagonist Isaac Clarke and newcomer John Carver as they scour the frozen planet of Tau Volantis. In addition to drop-in/drop-out co-op, Dead Space 3 introduces several new gameplay mechanics, such as the ability to roll for more responsive control and an automatic cover system that doesn't require you to press a button to duck behind something.

The first Dead Space game was something pretty special. Its setting of a deserted spaceship infested with seemingly endless hordes of "necromorph" human/alien mutations pushed the boundaries when it came to evoking a sense of isolation and foreboding,...

Awakened doesn't add anything to its parent game other than a punchline that makes it clear that Isaac's trials on Tau Volantis were ultimately a waste of his - and our - time.

Miraculously, Dead Space 3 seems to have slipped through a loophole in whatever rule it is that requires the third entry in a sci-fi series to be dramatically worse than the second. (Star Trek, Alien, Terminator, Back to the Future, and yes even The...

A strong sequel that maintains dismemberment, stressful combat and crazy marker happenings. It falters with minor co-op intrusions, backtracking, excessive solo action and a mixed story package. Exploring the derelict spaceships is a series highlight...

If you like Dead Space, you should play Dead Space 3. The game can be great and is a lot of fun, despite some flaws.

Does the addition of co-op and a new icy locale make the third time a charm?

By gamestar.de on 80

Mehr Action, Eisplanet statt Gruselkreuzer, Koop-Modus. Ist das überhaupt noch Dead Space, oder hat Electronic Arts den serientypischen Horror zugunsten einer größeren Zielgruppe geopfert?

By softpedia.com on 80

Dead Space 3 is a pretty good addition to the franchise and, while it tries to respect the core of the series, quite a few of its additions don't really hit their targets, like the scavenging component or the co-op, to some degree.

On PC, Visceral Games made a fully functional but no-frills port with a few basic graphical features you can throw on, a simple set of control options, 360 gamepad functionality if you're into that, and the same texture quality that you'd get over on consoles. The game still looks and sounds pretty great...
