I'm at Chapter 7 and so far, I'm not that impressed with Dead Space 3 at all.
The thing is, till chapter 7 (excluding the intro), we're stuck in environments that have been done to death in Dead Space 1 and 2. Already the game feels like it is dragging at a snail's pace and the starting few chapters are nothing more than filler.
As for the gameplay, where do I begin? Remember the methodical, precision dismembering of the previous games? Well, say goodbye to all that in this one. I'm playing Hard Mode and no matter what, I have to use both my primary fire and alt fire to take down enemies. They move too fast for me to get a clean shot at their limbs.
And the way Visceral tells their stories are getting old. I tolerated it in the first game but it was pretty bad in the second installment. The third installment fairs no better with the same minimalistic storytelling, barely any character interaction despite having a "crew". I also "love" seeing John Carver pop out of no where and talk about things he has no idea about because he simply wasn't around when it happened.
I'm disappointed with the game already :\
Oh, and good to see you back again :)
@fend_oblivion That's one thing I didn't even notice until just how is the gunplay and enemy movement. You're right, they are too fast to get a good shot at, even on normal mode. I have found myself just shooting at the enemy like it's a bullet sponge instead of strategically planning my shots.
Thanks! Glad to be back. :D
