Why i hate Dead Space 3 and why it needs CHANGED
Ok so after playing the Demo, i can just say this. I AM NOT BUYING THIS GAME.

Dont troll me. I played and loved Dead Space 1 and 2. I beat the first one multiple times and the second 2 times. They both are great and beat any other horror game in terms of scares.
However, Dead Space 3 totally ruins what the series had going. The series is horror. This is nothing about horror. Its marketed as horror, but its mostly action. Why dont you look at resident evil? Currently its having an identity crisis. Resident Evil Fans mostly want the old series back with Horror, not action. Action Over Horror IN A HORROR FRANCHISE does not turn out well. Resident Evil 6, ORC and 5 failed due to this. Take a page from the book of Resident Evil Fans. Dont ruin a good series EA just to make a profit.

Now, instead of bashing, i will add some parts i think need improved:

1. The controls were just god awful terrible. Running was impossible because Turning Issac while running is just animated horribly.

2. The Focus on Co Op is just appalling. Horror is about scares. Another reason to see REsident Evil as an example. Notice Resident evil started to fail once they forced players into Co Op play. Re5 was the first. It flopped. REORC was next. It panned. RE6 was next, it flopped as well. The only reason Revelations was good with co op, was although it did that, it purposely went Horror Over Action for the right reasons.

3. Day 1 DLC. 11 of them. Oh god no. So basically, now your cutting half the game apart and turning it into Day 1 DLC? Thats just plain greed. Fans bought the game and deserve to play it all. Not be forced to pay to get more content THATS ALREADY PROBABLY ON THE DISK. What ever happened to UNLOCKING the content on disk? Resident Evil Outbreak as an example had NO DLC but had loads of content on disk that was able to be unlocked. Such as levels, characters, modes and more. All you needed was to rank up scores.

4. The Drill Battle was just plain outrageous. You expect someone to kill the unrealistic loads of Necromorphs entering the room while a drill the size of a plane follows you? I was able to beat it, but not without frustration.

5. Nectromorphs are WAY overpowered. In Dead Space 1 and 2, 3 shots to limbs killed them. This game? Takes a full clip each Enemy.

6. The Demo is only 10 minutes long, but 2GB. Why? You want users to play the demo, but its a GIANT filesize. PSN has slow download speed. My Internet is very fast and it should of been a fast download. This part is NOT EA`s fault of the slow speed, but either way, it took me a few hours to download the demo, only to FINALLY play and find out, i completed it in only 10 minutes.

7. Im not the first and wont be the last. Cut out the origin content. NOBODY wants to use Origin. People dont want MULTIPLE clients to handle games. We want to use the clients we use. Even on console versions your all up in our faces with asking us to sign into origin. No thanks.

So basically, just like with Simcity, EA has ruined ANOTHER great opportunity. I was hyped for both and am fans of both franchises. Until i found out Simcity has Always ON DRM no matter what fans say (Almost all long time simcity fans want the Always on DRM removed). Then next, I see the overly appalling stuff in Dead Space 3. Im sorry Visceral, but EA has ruined your franchise.

Of course, this is my opinion. And dont comment if your gonna be rude and go offtopic. Make this a friendly, level headed conversation.

Resident Evil 5 was released on all its platforms in 2009, eventually outselling its predecessor and becoming the best-selling single game of the franchise. -- Wikipedia

If "fans" had it their way game companies would just make the exact same game every year and we would never see anything new. See: Koei's Dynasty Warriors series.

If you read anything i wrote closely, its not all about the demo.
PLUS, the demo is the final version anyways. EA said so. Which is also why the game releases only 2 weeks after the demo. Whats in the demo, is whats in the game. I can judge the demo. Thats what its there for.

Why not? A demo is supposed to be a promotional tool to entice people into buying a product. If the demo failed to make me want to buy the product, why should I throw down the money? That's not to say that the demo is the only thing you should judge, but saying that you shouldn't judge a game by its demo is silly. They clearly picked that part of the game out to show people, and if that's what they are trying to impress people with, then it doesn't give a strong picture for the rest of the game in my opinion.

chapter 2 through 7 can be scary you just need to go on a harder difficulty to get scared from the creatures p.s normal demo downloaders can get the demo ready in less than 30 minutes like me (because i have a little less than a terrabite) but still it doesnt take hours for almost anyone on PSN

After beating the game solo on Hard and mainly playing in the dark I can say this game has amped up the scares and overall it's one of the best games ever made.

I was initially looking forward to DS3 then I watched IGN's review of the game and thought, Mewwwh. Got the urge to buy it after watching a few player reviews and I'm glad I did as I think that the game's awesome. True, it's a bit more action orientated this time around but the survival horror element is still there.

I beated the drill on first play,its easy you just need to spam it. I never had problems with limbs in the game, maybe the demo has ♥♥♥♥♥♥ registring? If you didnt know they added invincibility to necros when they try to recover from your attacks,kinda like in DS2 but worst. Also I admit its not like the other games but theres plenty of "scares" in the game for those who actualy find this game scary. The end is pretty creepy too. The new weapon system looks complex at first but its fine. And yeah the game seemed harder to me but theres a reason you can have 2 weapons in one now. Im happy they added coop it gives more replay value,if you dont like it just dont play it its not a game changer.

1. Had no problem with the controls works fine on mouse and keyboard.

4. Nothing wrong with the drill battle even on hard.

5. Sorry but you are just bad at the game or there's something wrong with the demo they take 2 shotgun hits or 3-4 plasma shots to limbs max on hard.

The demo doesn't give a good impression but the game itself is mostly different for example the first 4-5 hours of the game are spent in space in enviroments just like the first two before you get to the ice planet and when you are there the game still has the same feel just with a bit more action in places.

Overall the game is far too easy even on hard thanks to the infinite amount of resources, I find myself constantly throwing away stasis packs and med kits because my inventory is allready full of them.

Dead Space 3 IMHO isn't as scary as the first Dead Space. The first one was the scariest of all. After mixing, matching, customizing weapons, what you'll realize is that the game becomes easier, because you're walking around with 2 beastly weapons. I beat the game on Normal, hard and Impossible and impossible is the only one that makes sense to play right now.

After 3 runs of the game, I built 7 weapons, FULLY maxed out. It's fun to play with, but because I'm mowing down nechromorphs, I need to play it on Impossible to get a sense of challenge.

I tried classic mode and I beat it, but OMG, classic mode is MUCH more difficult. With only the classic Dead Space 2 weapons, not being able to customize; makes the game a lot more challenging. Health wasn't the issue during my run tho, it was ammo. Coming down to the end of the classic mode, I found myself with NO scrap metal, as I was constantly crafting ammunition during the game.

All in all, Dead Space 3 has the MOST variety and is overall the best Dead Space IMO, although it isn't as scary as the original. It isnt as "linear" as the first two games. The free roam and exploring adds to replayability. After making Isacc more "powerful" than he was in Dead Space 1, the "scarieness" started to drop. In Dead Space 1, Isaac was really slower with limited ability and that added to the horror.

Also........................The ending for Dead Space 3 is on STERIODS! ! !

Another thing, you can't judge the game, JUST by playing the demo. I was skeptical at first after playing the demo, because Dead SPACE supposed to be about SPACE, not on land. Imagine... two guys running around in the snow with space suits, LOL!

After playing the game, Chapters 2-7 were the best IMO, however, they managed to pull off chapters 8 - the end good. The ONLY thing I miss are scenes where some s**t blows a hole in the wall that sucks Isaac in space.
