I recently purchased this for 10 bucks on PC, and I gotta say, worth it. I remember seeing people not like this game, at least story wise, so when I saw it for cheap I decided to give it a try. So far I am only on Chapter 5, but it seems good, unless it drastically changes soon, it may be great. It's nice to be able to customize weapons this time, and I just scrapped the starting pistol thing and combined it with the Plasma Cutter and am having a great time combat wise compared to the older games.
It is pretty odd fighting humans and being able to crouch in a Dead Space game, but oh well. Only thing I know that is pretty stupid is the ending.
Anyone else enjoy this game as much as I do? I really got tired of Dead Space by the end of Dead Space 2, so that may be why I like this one.
