Dead Space 3 Demo Thoughts

#1Crimson SkysPosted 1/23/2013 10:12:02 PM
I'm a big fan of the first couple Dead Space games (the first game a little more than the second) and I was really looking forward to the third Dead Space, but after playing the demo I'm now thinking I might not buy the third game. From the look of the demo it seems like they really lost sight of what made the first couple games good.

The Dead Space series is supposed to be an Event Horizon-esque horror game but with Dead Space 3 it looks like they've RE6ed it. RE6 wasn't a bad game by any means but with RE6 they took a good horror series and turned it into a mediocre action shooter, which seems like what's going to happen with Dead Space 3.

Instead of dark hallways with strobe lights we get aliens popping out of snow which is just very cliche and uninspired. Yes, the dark hallways with strobe lights are cliche but in a good way because that's what the developers meant to portray. The game was supposed to be reminiscent of a classic horror movie. Monsters popping out of the snow and stuff like that is just bad game design IMO.

I'm not trying to be a troll or anything so I'm open to criticism, that's just what my thoughts were after playing the demo. I'm really hoping the demo was just a small part of an overall great game but so far I'm kinda disappointed.

I'm almost afraid to say this for fear of being verbally assaulted... But as a huge fan of the series.. I came in with low, LOW expectations.... And was actually pleasantly surprised

I didn't like the demo my first time around, but I'm going to give it another shot.

The demo saved me $65 so I was happy with them releasing it.
