Dead Space 3 starts off as a interesting space action adventure and slowly turns into a boring repetitive mess. It does do a few things right like how most of the action moments like escaping a exploding ship are dramatic. Plus the gunplay feels alright since Issac can make a variety of weapons once you find the parts. The first part of this game also feels a lot like what DS was about mostly thanks to it taking place in a few old space ships.
Yet once the story heads towards the planet I started to not enjoy playing it anymore. Each new enemy that starts showing up is just another variation of a monster with claws for arms. Even the story starts to seem repetitive with a notable one being a collect 5 things to continue the story mission. Which leads into a very rare complaint of this game feeling like it was going on for far to long. By the time I got to the end I was ready to delete this off my hard drive unfortunately. Overall this game had promise with a fun intro but they didn't manage to keep the pacing varied enough to enjoy the entire game.

This is turning out to be a random EA games block of games. So far this seems to be a more action focused Dead Space game just like the second one. Combat still feels good even if it's not really scary anymore. The uncharted in space moments are really suspenseful. The micro transactions are obviously worth a mention since it seems like they limit my weapon choice. They do at least give the player a assortment of parts to make a small variety of weapons.

By far not as great as DS 1 & 2 but at the least a good action game.
