Dead Space 3 available globally, yet to launch in India

Dead Space 3 is now available in store shelves globally, but still needs to see the light of day in India. Reviews of the game are out and most of them say that the game doesn’t live up to its hype. That isn’t to say that the game is bad, it’s just that the presentation and overall package of its predecessors is better.

A general consensus on the review of the Dead Space 3 says that the game looks gorgeous with its graphics, the gameplay is still fun as ever, and dismembering a Necromorphs is still a thrilling experience. The addition of multiplayer in the story means that you can now share the adventure with a friend. A new mechanic added to the game is the ability to create your own weapons or modify them, as you like. This is a break from the standard upgrade mechanic and is a good twist to the game.

On the downside however, the story of the game is weak. It isn’t well connected and doesn’t keep you as engaged as it did in Dead Space 2.

A DLC pack called the Awakening will be available for Dead Space 3 for $10 (Rs. 530 approx.) The DLC pack is expected to be the “darkest chapters as the Necromorph battles become even more gruesome and terrifying than ever before.”

Dead Space 3 is a third person survival horror action game and will launch for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in February 2013 for Rs. 2,999 and Rs. 1,499 respectively.
