As a original sceptic of CoOp in Dead Space

#1 Posted by Justinps2hero (2171 posts) -

I must admit, I'm being won over by it. Not because I want to team up, but because it looks as though the single player campaign remains intact. Not just intact, it looks really good. I was happy with the evolution from DS to DS2, afterall we had all done the scary corridors, so they had to change it somewhat. Leaning towards an action based sequel was risky, but implemented perfectly in my opinion. 

This leads me to DS3 & what shall probably be Mr Clarks last outing (although I wouldn't bet my mortgage on that), the setting looks great & fits with the previous game & story, the suits & the weapons keep it fresh & I'm sure they will spoil us with quite a few new nasties, aswell as some epic battles!

Looking forward to a whole winter of build up before I chose where my pre-order comes from. I have little faith in EA as a company, but in DEAD SPACE I trust.

CoOp play...even better. The only thing is hoping a that 2nd player partner plays within the same level of experience. This game looks cartoonist...idk

Fooey on CO-OP. It is a survival horror game there is no need to take that edge away by adding another player. Who you know they will do something stupid like lag you out get you killed with FOF or steal the ammo's. This taking away all the survival solo edge and feel. There might be some multiplay don't get me wrong. Just don't **** with the campaign.

man... the edge ain't gone. At any time in the game Carver could go completely nuts, forcing Isaac to protect him while he deals with his "issues". It's not like you can just bum sweep the entire game with a friend.

Nice double post... Of course the edge is gone with a partner they will take most of the scare away from a survibal horror solo experience. You lose all focus on enemies and with a partner they can be lazier or those partners simply annoy the hell out of you by doing something stupid. Like dying, stealing ammo and guns, or lagging you out. Having played HALO 4 the vechilies where constantly getting stuck on each other most often your partner didn't drive them properly and would force restarts I.E on the bike and in space craft the screen would glitch if drove to quickly and they weren't on top of you and the lag was bad playing cross Atlantic etc.

The point is, Mult in a survival horror game makes it less scary or not even survival horror because it is a team now.

I agree with Multi don't get me wrong, but please make some seperate multi missions for this. With boss modes or swarms of Necromorphs to be enjoyed as a team. Examples can be found in shooter games like COD or even Sniper Elite they have plenty of MULTI only missions where a partner is needed to complete them as you have to work together to complete a common goal. Just don't **** with the campaign in this game, this can be completed solo on hardest difficulties. So WTF do I need a partner for taking away from this games horror.

I not convinced anymore I will probably wait for Bio Shock
