Dead Space 3’s Combat
With a high variety of enemy life to tear your way through, you’ll need to use various cpproaches to combat in Dead Space 3 in order to survive. You’ll be blowing off necromorph limbs in order to bring them down while using the plasma cuter on slashers and wasters and melee attachments like the hydraulic engine in order to bring down swarms of smaller enemies.
One thing that Dead Space 3’s combat gets spot on is the sense of brutality. You might be wielding the most ridiculously overpowered weapon you’ve ever seen, but you’ll still be wetting your pants with anxiety.
Dead Space 3’s Co-Op
The co-op mode is Dead Space 3’s biggest addition to the series. You can play through the entire campaign with a partner. Several changes are made when playing the campaign in co-op. The puzzles, for instance, are tweaked to allow both players to work on them together, and there are always two instances of loot so you don’t need to argue over the goodies.
The co-op mode sees Isaac joined by John Carver, a grump git whose story is only revealed in the co-op mode. The new narrative gives added incentive to play through the co-op mode, but John Carver’s character definitely falls a little flat.
All in all , the co-op mode is a great addition that adds a lot of new content and makes the game last a lot longer than it would otherwise. It might not be perfect, but its extra bang for the buck and a lot of fun too.
Dead Space 3 Side-Missions
Dead Space 3 offers a ton of side-missions. The mission will have you journeying deep into the recesses of levels. There, you’ll discover more about the people that lived in the game’s world before all the horror began. There’s probably some five or six hours of new content in the side-missions, which yet again means even more bang for your buck.
Dead Space 3 Final Thoughts
There is so much content in Dead Space 3 that it would be a travesty not to rate it highly. Between the single player, the co-op and the side-missions, you’re easily looking at 20 hours of content, and it’s quality content. The story might not be perfect, but the terrifying sense of horror and death that permeates the very pores of Dead Space 3 make it one of the most memorable gaming atmosphere’s you’re likely to experience this year.
