    Default Thoughts on DeadSpace 3 demo ?

    Just finished the demo and although i still love it I have the horrible feeling that its not going to be as scary as dead space or dead space 2 ? has anybody else got that feeling ?

    They have bastardised the DS series with Co-op. This will become another Resident Evil. Gonna read some reviews before I make my decision.

    Agree 200% with you. Why do they always have to do this?

    But I tell you why... Electronic Arts... Thats why. EA insists on every game they release having MP. EA has ****ed up games for me for many many years now ever since Ultima 8 I have hated EA.

    Dead Space is supposed to be pure survival horror - and that was what the first game was - perfectly, and I still play it to this day.
    Dead Space 2 was ok, but the horror element was greatly toned down in favor of more action. Dead Space 3 is going all out action. Sad day indeed.

    Played the demo (Ps3) at a mates house last night,so here's my impression of the demo:

    • The game is trying too hard to be Uncharted, but it doesn't pull it off.
    • Pointless QTEs. Blegh
    • Weapon Crafting - I'm indifferent about it. I don't think I've ever cared about this sort of thing in any game ever so it is what it is I guess.
    • Graphics were mixed. I didn't do a side-by-side comparison or anything, but I feel like the older games looked better. Then again, they had the benefit of mostly being in enclosed spaces. Point is, I wasn't impressed by the visuals.
    • Framerate dropped pretty badly early on in the demo. This is disappointing since the previous games were rock solid on the PS3.
    • Any feeling of isolation is entirely absent.
    • Necromorph enemies with guns gave me flashbacks of Resident Evil 5.
    • Actual combat plays out the same. Shoot the limbs on basic enemies, shoot the orange glowy things on bosses, etc.
    • Human enemies are dull enemies. Threeway fights could be interesting, but I mainly just waited encounters out and picked off the survivors. Just seems more efficient.
    • Also, I thought the early walk-slowly-in-the-snow section was dumb since you can just aim to move normally.



    So yeah..I don't really know what to think of it..But it was just a demo,will wait for reviews on the full game.

    But at the moment it's a bargain bin buy for me. (EA game's prices usually drops fast in S.A)

    I'm not saying it's really bad.. It's just really sad that a great game like Dead Space 1 is being EA'd so hard that it's turning into a Michael Bay movie.

    I know what you mean. But I liked it for what it was. Same reason I stopped buying COD after MW2. They just went bat sh** crazy with the action sequences. So I guess my last hope for some scares next month is Aliens: CM

    The demo was just one action sequence to the next. No horror survival at all. If the whole game is like that, no thanks.

    I will still get it even though I agree on all the bad point. No matter what it can only be a 100000 times better than Resident Evil 6.


    And D4rkling, you say enemies with guns remind you of Resident Evil 5?.... I guess you forgot about the 40% of zombies with machine guns in RE6.
