One of the best triple A titles I have ever played. You are Isaac Clarke, an engineer who has traveled to a Planet Cracker class ship to fix a communication relay, your motivation, the woman you love.
Things aren't so hunky dorey when you get there and what ensues is one of the best, albeit frustrating at times, survival-horror games ever made.
+The game still looks beautiful 6 years after release and there are plenty of opportunities for great screenshots
+Combat occasionally feels clunky but very satisfying when you dismember enemies
+Overall gameplay is good and rewarding
+Challenging boss fights
+Resource management is challenging but adds another level of gameplay to Dead Space
+When you complete the game you can start over with all of your items as well as some rewards for completing the game
+/-The plot, while the storyline itself is excellent, especially the twist at the end, some parts of the game are incredibly frustrating, e.g. 'Oh great you managed to find that thing which will save us! Oh but I just realised actually it won't be good enough, go find something else'
+/-Even medium difficulty is challenging at times, personally I like this but others may not
+/-Creepy enemies but not a particularly scary game especially compared to DS2
-Aiming while using matter cannons or while suspended by a 'large' necromorph is absolutely appalling even with a controller, very difficult to tell which way you need to move the weapon in order to get it in the right position
-Mouse controls aren't great and controller sensitivity can't be changed
-When using the steam overlay your normal mouse may appear in the game after using the mouse in the overlay
This is easily one of my favourite games and I'm so glad I played it to completion.If you liked this review or want to see more recommended games, be sure to follow our curator group: Follow Original Curator GroupCheck out the Original Network Groups.
