I reached a point earlier where I felt sick. Swarmed with loads of necromorphs, locked in a tiny room waiting for a door to unlock. Low ammo, stasis all used up. Terrifyingly awesome. I managed to get past it after half a dozen tries mainly by running, crying, using up stasis and praying for that door to open,

The panic knowing whats right behind you as you open the door is truly awful.

Quite a lot of nervous moments in the original one, didn't ever find that in the second. Will be checking out the latest at some point, but not in any rush.

Fuck that then.


Go for it. DS1 is a great game and you're missing out by not playing it. It is soil-yourself-jumpy in places but it's a great ride and the combat is incredibly satisfying.

I don't know how the graphics hold up now, but on release, it was a great-looking game and the sound design is superb. Given that the Resident Evil series has gone to shit, this has taken some of the elements of what made Resi decent, and run with them.



DS1 still looks amazing - in fact it trounces a lot of recent games in that regard. The art direction, interface design etc is superb.

So, DS1 is 14.99 on Games on Demand. Cheapest I've seen on Ebay is about 10 at the moment. Tempted for once by GoD.

I've still not reached Hoth yet, but so far exploring the derelict ships has been brilliant. Weapon crafting and the upgraded workbenches have added a lot to the game in terms of variety - I've got a line gun, shotgun combo which packs a pretty mean knockback punch.

I managed to work my way through a few chapters of DS1 at the weekend - Chapters 2 to 4. So I've just done the annoying manually-shoot-the-asteroids-while-your-boss-configures-auto-targeting section.

What an intense game. I met a few Brutes and got the level 3 suit so far. Cracking game. Did I mention how tense it is? The atmosphere is incredible...although the necromorph attacks are fairly predictable in parts they still manage to scare you and make you feel uneasy...

Up to Chapter 13 now.

SPOILERS

Scaling cliff faces is great and killing the Hive Mind from inside was fun. Fighting the bugger that keeps reappearing every so often now, for what I believe is the third and final time.

END SPOILERS

So far I've played through the first 5 or 6 chapters of DS1, haven't found it that scary to be honest. Enjoying the game but it seems to be a fairly by the numbers shooter to me.

I'm only doing it on medium so I can't really complain that I've found it pretty easy so far. No ammo problems really and I've not used stasis on an enemy yet, I keep forgetting about it to be honest.

I'm up to Chapter 5 on DS1 so far - I've just got the 'leviathan' part where they are polluting the air. Its a creepy game but not jump out scary. Its very tense and the atmosphere is great.

Crank up the surround sound and it has you on the edge of your seat!

Completed Dead Space 3 just 5 minutes ago. Superb game, strong story and a thrilling as well as terrifyingly unnerving experience. Final boss battle is a bit throwaway but as far as gaming experiences go, few series match Dead Space for its combination of adrenaline pumped action and dread-inducing atmosphere. As with Dead Space 2 I had my trepidations about EA taking the series in the wrong direction, but they've proven me wrong twice now; with Dead Space 3 the change up in the gameplay with weapon crafting and resource gathering worked really effectively, and adds more replay value than just repeating the game on harder difficulties (don't think I dare doing it on hardcore though).

As the final game in the franchise (?) Dead Space 3 stands tall against its classic predecessors.

Finished this last night, and for the most part, although it's nowhere near as scary as the previous entries it's still a great game that oozes atmosphere, plays brilliantly and looks beautiful. The story this time round isn't much kop and is basically the same as any last installment in a franchise (stop the big evil thing) but I had a blast from start to finish.

Need to try co-op now though.

That's a damn shame, it's an awesome set of games.

And screw micro transactions.

Finished it last night.

SPOILERS!

It starts off, gets really good, then better, then a bit mmm in the alien city then you shoot a gigantic vulva in its yellow eye.

From the alien city bit it lost a lot and just felt like loads of other games, just too copy and paste then I had to shoot the boss alien in the eye. Really? The ending of DS2 was so much more memorable. Kind of tainted things for me. The parts I enjoyed the most were getting to the planet via a few ships, getting down to the planet and some of the Hoth bits. Overall this will probably be one of the best games people will get to play this year, not as good as the first two but it does have its moments.

Now to play it on the real settings.

I'd agree with the Alien city stuff. Highly anti-climactic, but I did like the boss fight even if it was generic.

Also, I doubt micro-transactions had an impact on the poor sales. Did anyone use them? I know I didn't.

I certainly didn't - but then I'll bet there were some previous Dead Space players put off by micro-transactions who would have avoided the game for that reason. Which is a stupid reason because it was a great game.

Apart from that, I can't understand why it would have underperformed - it even got UK television adverts which I certainly don't remember with the previous two games.

I'd take it all with a pinch of salt at this stage, Peter Moore has accused VideoGamer of fabricating the story out of thin air: Clicky!

EA/Moore will of course look like utter tits if it does turn out to be true!

Well he didnt hold back did he?

I don't mind Isaacs story ending but feel that the game could branch out. Im looking forward to the DLC released on the 12th or 13th which hopefully will offer a better finale for DS3.

The DS universe is a rich one with loads of possibilities. There is scope for allsorts but you know that every publisher just wants a COD killer

Is it connected to the main story at all, or just some extra missions that maybe got cut out?
