The build up to Dead Space 3 was bigger than any title before it. So when a copy landed in my hands, I was ready to see what the game would bring. The crew from Visceral Games and EA did not disappoint. One of my favorite features was the ability to play full campaign in online co-op or single player through easy drop-in and drop-out play. Weapon modifications are better then before too. Everything from clip and barrel changes to straight up or side-shot options can be found in this new Third-Person Shooter adventure. Here’s a brief description of the new title.

Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, Isaac must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts. He will then put his engineering skills to the ultimate test to create and customize weapons and survival tools. The ice planet holds the key to ending the Necromorph plague forever, but first Isaac must overcome avalanches, treacherous ice-climbs, and the violent wilderness. Facing deadlier evolved enemies and the brutal elements, Isaac can choose to team up, not only for his own survival, but for that of mankind’s. Play together with a friend or go it alone as Isaac Clarke using the seamless new drop in, drop out co-op functionality. Each mode offers unique story elements and gameplay.
