Now I’m a little late with this as I have been trying to put Dark souls down. Will also be worth noting that I have avoided near all news, trailers and reviews of dead space 3. And Dead space 2 is a bit of a ‘sacred cow’ for me. As in the same day I went out and got the game, had no idea that I would find a new flat screen tv ready for me. As in they actually gave Issac a decent personality after the mute of the first game. As in I loved the pace of the game, action scenes and story. As in THAT opening. As in having a character constantly shift your surrounding while verbally destroying you. As in the amazing armour designs, love love love the Riot style suit. As in a real good ending that actually felt worth fighting all the way for.
Anyways. Already it feels nice and familar, the opening is decent. Scaling down a snowy cliff with ships debris falling everywhere for starters, good job. Issac’s looking fairly gruff as to be expected. Though the first thing that still havent got used to is the ammo. You just collect one type of ammo for all weapons? It does make sense with the whole new weapon crafting business. No more simple power nodes it seems. Will experiment with it more, as all I have at the moment is a planet cracker style cutter with a nail bolt gun on the underside and a mess of a weapon in the other slot… which somehow is getting better.
Oh and you only carry two weapons now?! Wonder if this will change via new suits but it doesnt feel like it. Now save points are replaced by auto saves, kinda sucks at the moment. When I load up the next play I end up way further back than I was, yet still have the items I found, right? Oh and I’m so glad that the necromorphs are more of a pain in the arse. The first time a paniced, wasted a load of ammo, took out a limb and then I though another when it actually fell in half while the legs sprouted spikey tentincles and then continued to come after me.
Will report back later
PS: Nitpick goes here. Why oh WHY do games put a completion percentage on the save file…. I dont wanna know when I’m getting near the end XD
