    Synopsis


    Living with the constant fear of the plague may now seem like a pleasant memory to Isaac Clarke compared to his current reality — fear compounded by the ceaseless terror of the frozen planet Tau Volantis. Teaming up with merciless soldier John Carver may be his only chance of surviving the dangerous planet and the even deadlier evolved enemies that await him there. Stranded on this barren world, he must face an unending stream of lethal enemies, horrifying avalanches, treacherous ice climbs and the brutal elements of the violent wilderness in order to solve the mysteries of the past and find the solution to the Necromorph plague — a solution that is mankind's last hope.

    Plunge into the frozen world of Dead Space 3 as Isaac Clarke, and use your courage, intelligence and skill to navigate the challenges that lurk around every corner. Explore underworld cities, engage in side missions and put Isaac's engineering skills to the ultimate test in order to build the weapons needed to survive. The weight of human survival rests on your shoulders, but you can enlist the help of your friends with the game's new drop-in and drop-out co-op gameplay. On the terrifying planet of Tau Volantis, you may need all the help you can get.

    Features


    Explore Tau Volantis' extreme terrain with the insulated Witness Suit and protect yourself against lengthy space exposure with the thick armor of the First Contact Suit

    Decimate your enemies with the Evangelizer Weapon, which sports a deadly combination of a heavy-duty assault rifle and a shotgun, and unleash your fury with the Negotiator Weapon that features a Tesla-powered instrument for organic tissue dismemberment

    Defeat the terror of the Necromorph plague in the deadly terrain of the frozen planet Tau Volantis by going it alone as Isaac Clarke or teaming up with merciless soldier John Carver

    Uncover mysteries of the past and embark on a thrilling expedition to save mankind by discovering the source of the Necromorph terror while you scavenge the harsh environment for parts and raw materials

    Play the full campaign in single-player or online co-op mode with the new seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op functionality

      Best Dead Space Yet

      I'm a fan of Dead Space through and through, and this one definitely is a must-buy in my opinion if you enjoy horror/action games. Firstly, there's plenty of new features that the predecessors didnt have before. Single-player co-op is a definite plus. You will experience completely different when you play alone rather than when you play co-op. Dimentia and psychological factors play a huge factor here since for one person they could be walking into a seemingly eerie quiet room, and then your co-op partner could be screaming bloody murder because his character is hallucinating a nightmare. All of this trickles down from an immensely well written original storyline. This time around there are optional side-missions which add to the experience, and there's plenty of small features which make it all worth the buy. 8.5/10 for me.

      An Excellent Addition To The Dead Space Line Up

      If you enjoyed the previous Dead Space games, you'll be sure to enjoy Dead Space 3. The most polished, well-paced entry in the excellent sci-fi horror series yet. Bringing a friend along for two-player co-op is a blast. Snow crumbles beneath Isaac’s boots, necromorphs are disgustingly detailed, and the backdrops are stunning. Solid voice acting sells the drama, and the cries of enemies are appropriately unsettling. The new weapon-crafting system and roll dodge make it easy to play the way you want to play. The environments are moody and the gameplay is without a hitch. This is one of the best horror games I’ve ever played. A fantastic game.

      Quality game all around

      If you love challenges and the series of "Dead Space', this is for you. I recommend you play the first two games before playing this one. If you don't you'll get lost as to what's going on in the story-line. The graphics are amazing with a few imperfections (every game has them). The story line is amazing, with a great plot twist in it. Co-op mode makes the game more enjoyable but less challenging. There's an achievement where you need a co-op partner. As to what's bad about it, it doesn't have split-screen so you can't play with a buddy. Other than that it's a great game all around. If you play non-stop I'd say it'll take you a week to beat it. Very great at passing time. Great game.

      Amazing Experience

      This game is the best in it's series. CO-OP is a great addition to the game but is not required to get the full experience. Weapon customization is awesome, plenty of suits to use, lots of bonus items for veterans and pre-orders, additional modes unlock as you beat the game on different difficulties adding plenty of replay-ability. Overall, I felt that this game is very well worth the $59.99 and the value increases as you get more DLC (Download Content).

      This is by far one of the best horror/survival games and maybe the best in this series. Requires better aim for limbs than before, you have quicker mobility, enemies are harder to predict and seem a lot more intelligent, and the "when will they stop comming" & "oh I'm gonna die" momments keeping getting more intense as you move through. Only down side is I am not too hip on the new mod system for weapons, but it could be I really haven't tried to get too creative as I am trying to just survive right now. All in all though, great game!

      Epic Game

      EA did a great job with this game. Not so much about cutting off limbs as the first two games. Using the new weapons crafting feature, you can be inventive as you want when dealing with Necromorphs. Projectiles, Plasma, Fire, Force and energy. The weapons have a narrow firing field unless you are using the line gun. Can't really take Necromorphs apart like in the first two games. Only complaint is there is a slow transition between using your primary and secondary weapon as well as firing the stasis. Overall experience was great.

      A good DS sequel

      The DS story is getting more epic with each installment. This time around, Issac is here to save the human race, again. We still get lots of different futuristic guns to fight the Necromorphs. What's different is we get to craft and build them. This can make you unstoppable in the later chapters of the game. The graphic is still top notch and the environment is still creepy as ever. The sound effect is very scary if you have surround sound or a headphone. Another great DS game and I'm looking forward to the next one.

      Great addition to the series

      I've been a sucker for the Dead Space series since the first one. It's a great-looking series that started off as terrifying. Though the scariness of the series has decreased in subsequent entries, the gameplay has gotten better and better. The weapon-crafting system in Dead Space 3 is great. Some might argue it can be game-breaking, as you can upgrade your starting weapon to be a beast. Co-op is a pretty different experience than the single-player, and it's worth playing through as the co-op character.
