    "The eighth installment to the never dying series isn't as terrible as made out to be. When you get past the concepts of an idiot finding themselves lost in one of the world's least child-friendly places, a dark past which Silent Hill's unique therapy sessions unearth, and a wannabe boss monster, the game is a good attempt at being Silent Hill: Downpour.
    The only problem is that if Silent Hill was never mentioned or referred to whatsoever, the game itself might as well just be a...

    4 Star Rating An honest review of Dead Space 3.
    By: BensLazy247, on August 12, 2013
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "As a fan of the series since its first installment, I had high expectations for number 3, so here are my thoughts on each particular part of the game.

    Story: Without giving too much away, the game is set a couple months after the end of the 2nd game. Isaac is a broken man, which does show throughout the story. His main priority? Find the woman he loves, Ellie, with the whole "save Earth and humanity" thing coming second. That's all I'll say about the story, but in my opinion it is...



    4 Star Rating More action than before

    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Dead Space 3 does move in a different direction to the first few games. It is more open, including space walks and short planet hops, lots of outside exploration and lots of shooting. At first I thought this was diluting the experience, and in terms of being atmospheric and frightening, Dead Space 3 does NOT compare to the first two. However it does have it's own features that make up for this...more on that later.

    So basically, things go like this: Isaac is still the protagonist,...

    "You have to understand, I'm nearly 65 and the state's shortly going to pay me for just being a nice, old chap! I was raised on the pub version of space invaders - ping! Ping! Ping! Zup, you're dead! I played Dead Space 1 at the easy level and was pretty taken with the graphics in that. I couldn't believe the number of senarios contained in the race to get the marker. The weapons are awesome, as are the beasts that attack. This is a truely wondersome world, grotesque but remarkably imaginative...



    5 Star Rating The Ultimate Alien/Space Sci-Fi Game
    By: JezB, on February 7, 2012
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Really sad to see some of the disappointing ratings for this title on here as for me this is the best game I've ever played, and the nearest thing you'll ever find to playing the film Alien on a PC.

    I've got an above average spec system and managed to max out all setting in super smooth 1920 x 1080. The graphics detail of the ship is excellent, and the level design completes the feeling of isolation in space as you travel up and down the tram system, completing objectives and trying...

    Cons:

    "Purchased this game as it had gone down in price and what a bargain! Ok so the game is very linear and you pretty much just follow the route you are given (which is literally marked on the floor when you press a certain button) but the fun comes from trying to stay alive and not mess up your pants in the process!

    The graphics are excellent and gameplay is smooth. Unusually for a game of this genre you have a third person perspective directly behind the player but I quickly got used to...

    "This is my first review so bare with me.
    I played Dead Space and I loved it, the isolation of space, the random noises scaring you, the story, and of course the inhuman enemies. So when I knew that Dead Space 2 was coming I got very excited and scared at the same time. This new Dead Space could turn out to be a great game or it could be a uptaded copy of the first. I'm glad to say that it is not only great as it is phenomenal.

    Story wise is very good, changing the setting from...

    Cons:

    "Electronic Arts second sci-fi horror game has arrived, even more tense and frightening than the first installment.

    Isaac Clarke's journey continues with him waking up from a coma on a massive space station called "The Sprawl". As well as the constant threat from the Necromorphs, Isaac must also has to battle against the station's govenrment and visions of his dead girlfriend. Outnumbered and haunted he has to incover the truth of the Marker.

    "Basically, this is a horror film with you as the star, progressing through the storyline. You are a technician aboard a ship that a horrible event has happened on and you are trying to find your way off. There is no choice, this game is excellent on the PS3, the graphics are good, from the detail of your character's suit to the enemies you face, the scenery is well done, with the lighting in certain areas making you jump at shadows. The game is also good in that it is not your average first...

    4 Star Rating An Actual Review
    By: Craig Lam, on November 11, 2008
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "*DRM will not factor in my assessment of this game. For the record - I don't approve of the system, but I feel that the game is worth buying anyway.

    *This is an action adventure game in the style of System Shock 2 and, more recently, Bioshock. In other words: it's an atmospheric adventure with a linear plot, a lot of shooting and some very light RPG character progression elements, which I will expand on later.

    Premise:

    The game's premise is hackneyed. You are a...

    By: R. Adams, on November 6, 2008
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "You play an engineer called Isaac whose team is sent out to repair a massive Mining Ship floating adrift in space. Isaac and team soon find out that the ship's crew has turned into flesh hungry monsters and it's up to Isaac to fix ship and save his surviving team mates.

    From this point, think Aliens and Event Horizon. As you walk down corridors lights blow out, doors slam and floors creak. The atmosphere is set well before you encounter any monsters and when you do they pose a...

    Cons:

    "What a sleeper hit Dead Space has become! And rightly so. It has to be one of the scariest games I have ever played along with some amazing graphics and gorgeous lighting. Not only that but I do have to comment on just how silky smooth this game looks and runs on the PS3. I haven't encountered one bug through the entire game and the level of detail that has gone into making the USG Ishimura appear real and authentic is quite something.

    As you enter the USG Ishimura you get a sort of...

    5 Star Rating Dead Good

    Cons:

    "10/10 Seriously awesome. Buy it.

    Basically what EA Redwood Shores have done is recreate Bioshock and set it in space. But the overall effect is much better than Bioshock.

    It's a shooter/horror, starring you as Isaac, an engineer sent along with a rescue team to find out what happened to the USG Ushimura, a deep-space 'Planet Cracker' class mining vessel.

    Things go wrong roughly 20 seconds into the first cut-scene, and from there on you're following the orders...



    5 Star Rating Survival Horror at its absolute BEST!!

    Pros:
    Cons:

    "The premise of Dead Space might seem, to some, very cliched. Big spaceship, overrun with aliens and lots of gore. Aliens, Event Horizon, Doom, etc, etc, all spring to mind when trying to explain the game.
    But you'd be wrong to think this was anything else but brilliance!
    This game has taken the best of the hard sci-fi horror genre and crafted it into a astonishing piece of technical mastery. Its that good.

    The setting for Dead Space is a large mining ship names the USG...
