I wasn’t the biggest fan of Dead Space 1.
Dead Space 2, however, blew me away. I don’t know if it was the increased variety from a raw gameplay standpoint, or the more interesting locales, but Dead Space 2 had me hooked.
Now, it seems as if Dead Space 3 is set to combine the survival horror elements of the first game alongside of the more action oriented portions of the second, as it introduces new systems like weapon crafting, cover, and human on human conflict.
Normally this wouldn’t be a problem — they just…went a little overboard and took away from what made the series so special in the first place.
