About

The third part in the Dead Space series. Like the previous installments, Dead Space 3 is a science fiction horror game in the vein of Alien film series.

Plot

The game is set in the year 2514. The humanity has discovered alien artifacts, the Markers. They can be the source of powerful energy but also provoke outbreaks of Necromorphs, the undead monsters. The radical Unitologists movement wants to spread the Necromorph infestation.

The main protagonist of the series, Isaac Clarke, resides at the Moon after he destroyed Markers in Dead Space 1 and 2. His ex-wife Ellie Langford went missing with her expedition on the frozen world of Tau Volantis. John Carver, the secondary protagonist of Dead Space 3, asks Isaac to travel with his team to Tau Volantis. This world may be the key to the secret of Markers.

Gameplay

The player assumes the role of Isaac Clarke on his quest. The game introduces the ability for Isaac to roll over and take cover to avoid being hit. Monsters and weapons from the previous games make a return, and there are new enemies like Nexus or Unitologist soldiers. The game also introduces the Weapon Bench system that allows to craft new weapons and upgrade them.

Multiplayer

Dead Space 3 was the first in its series to include an online cooperative multiplayer. In this mode, the second player assumes the role of Sergeant Carver and can accompany Isaac in the story campaign. Co-op mode unlocks additional missions that are unavailable in the single-player mode.

«I could make it better»
They really forgot to put everything that made Dead Space good in this. I beat it in one sitting and only managed to power through to the end because of the two bottles of wine I drank while I played it. No horror, no interesting weapons, weird janky cover shooter elements added because they thought people enjoyed that weird segment at the end of 2. The game was designed to be played in co-op and gets messy if you play it solo.
The series changes from action to horror in this entry that throws fast enemies at you in cramped areas, but the slow clunky controls from Dead Space 2 remains. A great example of incompatible design choices
