How we rate the games?
A well-known game such as Dead Space 3 is going to rock like it already did before with its own franchise. No matter what you might think of, this is the best Dead Space ever, maybe the most successful one. Unfortunately, even if a great amount of fame is put into the game, being a Dead Space 1 and 2 fan, I didn't see a lot of progress into the game, except the lightning. It is quite clear that they didn't use a lot of money on this one since they already had the game engine built, but I saw more progress on the second one from the first than from the third. There are a lot of stuff to be discussed of course, so stay tuned!
Alien technology, years of generations and a scientist seeking his love from the first games of the franchise, is what this game is all about. There is a lot of drama, where the story is the most important point. A bit of horror will make you feel glad you played this game, but I tell you that the story of this game, is really great. I thought that the game ended from the second one, but it still moved on, leaving no regrets, but made me glad to see another one. You will start playing like the scientist and learn that a lot of people want you dead. What is even worse, the spaceship where you moved on, got attacked by mines and crashes really bad, leaving but a wreck into the space. Here the story starts, where you will find a lot of secrets and defeat evil enemies.
Gameplay is quite perfect, where you get yourself into some interesting situation, stopping the time, moving objects by electrifying them and upgrading weapons using resources. There is even a buy/sell system, just like the old games did, so there is nothing to be thrilled about. What I sincerely didn't like, was that there was no great effort into putting a previous game to become much more interesting, with new features, but there were even the enemies nearly the same. There is a lot to understand though, since the idea is that the game goes on from the previous one, but this doesn't mean that they shouldn't add new features. A lot of stuff are exactly the same, but from what I understood, there were a lot of people who didn't play the old series and when starting playing this one, it will normally thrill you automatically.
The graphics are very good, especially textures resolution and lightning effects (even though a lot of latest games are starting to use this kind of lightning which derives from DirectX 11) and that is all of it. The game has no big change to tell you the truth, leaving it desperate with some little modifications added. There is still a lot to learn from the story, even if you don't like it. It feels like it was taken from real-life, but at least to me and there is nothing to regret after all, since there are a lot of bad stuff which happens even in your everyday life.
Optimization is very good, but as I will always state, that has to do a lot with the programming language they use and the version of DirectX, which is the 11th. From what I have searched around the interest, that is the fastest possible so far and the developers are starting to benefit from it greatly. Talking about the movements, physics and the game engine, it is exactly the same, but there are some very little changes, which if you ask me, are not really worth it, but still are cool. You won't need a very powerful graphics processing unit and that has not a lot to do with the resolution, which needs more vram from your card. I played and recorded with everything very high from the graphics settings, so there is nothing to panic and if you have a modern computer, that is more that enough.
Talking about the sound system, that is actually superb and if you have high definition audio, you are ready to feel like in outer space! Roughly you will judge the game by its capabilities, but it seems that all the people are talking about it only because of the gameplay and the story. Overall, the game is a must, even though they didn't put a great effort into making this new one. The story behind it, is really thrilling.
