Terror is back to strike fear into your hearts. Video game fans will rejoice at the prospect of delving deeper into the mythology of the Dead Space franchise. In one week, the hit franchise returns with the release of the third game, Dead Space 3, and fans of the series are sure to be enthralled with the action-fueled story that EA games has brought in this new installment.
Fans are taken back into the role of Issac Clarke. Two months after he and his companion Ellie have escaped the Sprawl and the Necromorph menace that plagued the ship, they encounter John Carver, a survivor of a Necromorph incident on a distant planet called Uxor, and they discover an ice planet called Tau Volantis, where the icy ruins of a 200-year old civilization are found. When Issac learns that someone there was able to stop a Necromorph outbreak, Issac, John, and Ellie try to land on the planet, hoping to get answers. However, upon entering the planet’s atmosphere, the ship breaks apart, and Ellie gets separated from the rest of the group. From there, Issac vows to find and rescue Ellie while facing a new threat and fighting the physical and mental affects of the Marker, the ancient artifacts responsible for the Necromorph plague.
Adding even more action to the series, the franchise continues to thrill and scare the living crap out of the fans, showcasing new, skeletal foes that continue to come after you even when you think you’ve defeated them. Including new Kinect abilities that allow you to operate the game with your voice, and a new system of managing your weapons so that you can add new abilities and ammo types to your weapons, slicing and dicing the Necromorphs is ten times more fun and the nonstop pace of the game keeps players on the edge of their seat. Overall, Dead Space 3 gets a 10 out of 10, for keeping the thrills and chills of the series alive and thriving in this new adventure, which promises to continue the amazing mythology and story of the Dead Space franchise.
