Ready to jump out of your skin… Again? The demo for Dead Space 3 seems to deliver. It seems like you start off at the beginning of where the full game starts with lots of tutorials for first timers. (Honestly, if playing 3 is your first time… Take the time to play the first 2 and come back here when the full game comes out.) You are hanging upside down from your cockpit harness looking like Luke Skywalker all iced over in Empire Strikes Back.
You do the normal shooting and moving around. One thing you may notice is that you are collecting new items. You are getting pieces and parts of equipment. This is for building new guns as blueprints. Unsure if there are schematics like in the first 2 games, but there is si much flexibility to build your guns to how you play, it’s a welcome addition to the game’s dynamic.
The online co-op is pretty flawless. You can jump in and out of games at any time and play as John Carver and Robert Norton. Lobbys are easy in and easy out. Stomp on some Necromorphs with friends and strangers!
Oh yeah… GameStop has their stupid claws in this release too. I swear, one of these days, you will be able to preorder a game and it’s going to be completed for you. Power to the lazy cheaters. :/
