Wow, the turret part really sucks.

#1 Posted by NickLott (793 posts) -

Trying to finally finish this and move on to Dead Space 2. Playing on normal, I have died three times before getting to the turret where I am now at the end of Chapter 4 and it is really unfortunate how shitty it is. I've been on it for 20 minutes now and I still haven't beat it. The controls feel extremely off and I can't adjust the sensitivity on the controller. Starting to wish I was playing on pc. 

#2 Posted by CornBREDX (5347 posts) -

Yep. That part is almost game breaking its so bad. 
Just struggle through it and you wont regret it. It may take a lot of effort but you'll be glad you did. Be happy in knowing they realized those parts sucked and I hear they did not use them in the second game (hooray!).
 
BTW I have the first, not the second. I'm getting the second when my Tax returns come back. Its one of a few things on my list anyway.

ha, try finishing it with 40 damage remaining!

#4 Posted by Xanth93 (485 posts) -

Yeah, that part is awful. And I will eventually get all the trophies on that game, but you need to get through that with 50% health. Fuck. I have quite a task.

#5 Posted by CornBREDX (5347 posts) -
@Xanth93: Ya i've been trying to get that for a long time now. Sadly there is no strategy or trick to it, it will highly require luck and repetition. Next time I try I think I'm gonna have a bottle of vodka handy to ease the pain.

I got it easily. Aim for the big rocks mostly. Also not all the rocks will hit the ship. Ones at the extreme sides and top and bottom will miss.

If you weren't even past chapter 4, why would you play DS1 before 2?
#8 Posted by NickLott (793 posts) -

Well, I finally beat it about 7 minutes after making this post. I can't believe something like this didn't get a red flag from play testers.

Finishing it without missing a single asteroid made me rage so much.

lol indeed. Ironically THE hardest part of getting the platinum trophy. Insane mode is a cake walk compared to that one turret part on any difficulty.

Yeah really. I remember when I got the platinum I got stuck at a few places on insane but not more than 20 minutes but those turret spots... once you get passed those you really felt like you've accomplished something :P

Well, It's not like I didn't like Dead Space, work and other things get in the way and once I put a game down it takes me a while to get back to it and I may pick up another game in that time (the same things happens to me with any media like books, tv shows, etc). Seeing all the Dead Space 2 stuff makes me want to finish up the first game before I play it, seeing as I already own it and all.

The Turret part with the asteroids? Am i the only one here who did not have a problem with it at all? Im playing normal on the PC with an Xbox controller, and I did it on my first try.

#14 Posted by karatetron (692 posts) -

As a general rule, turret parts always suck.

#16 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

Fuck that trophy. I S-RANKED THAT BITCH YOU KNOW!
 
The part leading up to it and coming back is really cool though. Any time that game plays with gravity (you know, its one really unique feature) it gets awesome.

#17 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2722 posts) -

I really can't understand how people are having so much trouble with this part. Getting through it with 40 damage was tough, but just finishing that part wasn't really that bad.

#18 Posted by chu52 (247 posts) -

As jeff talked about in the a.r.e.s. quicklook, turrets always suck. And yeah in my playing through so far that has been the worst part.

#19 Posted by Yummylee (21750 posts) -

Even worse when you try for the trophy/achievement.

#20 Posted by big_jon (5734 posts) -

I liked that part.

#21 Posted by GunstarRed (5207 posts) -

I remember the first time I did it I  finished it first time with no effort at all but the second time it took about 15 attempts. Once you go for the achievement  you somehow get so good at it that you never ever fail it.
#22 Posted by Spoonman671 (4645 posts) -

I don't understand why everybody complains about the turret section.  This part really isn't very hard.  You know there are two turrets, right?  L1 and R1 both have their own guns.  Not knowing that is the only way I can imagine somebody having such a hard time with this.

I played on hard and beat it on first try. I was playing PC but I was using a 360 contoller. Also I never finished dead space and now that I have beat dead space 2 I wish I had played through the first one first.

The sensitivity is jacked up super high on 360, so it takes a little getting used to, but the difficulty isn't actually high.
#25 Edited by NTM (7409 posts) -

I kind of think you have to be good enough to do that part. I can do it fine, but my brother and best friend couldn't do it at all so they always gave me the controller. It is pretty intense trying to get the trophy for it though, luckily I got it on my second try and I was playing on Impossible, though I doubt having the difficulty up changes those parts. I can't remember, I've only beat it on easy twice, and on impossible over ten times.

I just recently heard about complaints about these turret sections, I never had any trouble with them...
#27 Posted by Dork_Metamorphosis (251 posts) -

That part was a pain and the first time I heard Hammond say the words "cannon" and "asteroids" I got a sinking feeling about what was coming. Ugh. Definitely the worst of the minigames. Thankfully the second time you're on the cannon isn't nearly as annoying.

#28 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2129 posts) -

Who here actually played DS1 on PC with a keyboard and mouse?  I did it with both a controller and mouse and let me tell you, it is definitely more of a hassle on a controller, with the mouse guaranteeing that you will not get hit once with good aim.

Because they're part of a single story arc? Seriously, why would anyone skip out on Dead Space, a game that is fantastic in its own right. It's not like Dead Space 2 makes it obsolete or anything.

I totally did this with fifty remaining and I was also playing on the medium or normal level. 
 
I dunno, I had difficulty with the controls but I didn't find it game breaking. I never had to retry it. 
#31 Posted by chu52 (247 posts) -

So the first one WRECKED me. Second turret sequence was a breeze. Hmmmmm. Though the second one is waaaay cooler as a set piece.

The key I had for it was to not constantly fire the guns because it slows down your aiming. Only fire one or two shots and then move to hit the others. I'm going through the game again now and I haven't hit that spot yet. Hopefully it's not too much of a problem on hard,
#33 Posted by MildMolasses (3221 posts) -

I picked this up after playing DS2, and this fucking sequence is making me not want to play anymore. I was loving it up til then, but the controls are absolute shit on this section

Yep, I know there are two guns, but that doesn't have anything to do with the reticle flying all over the place and me not being able to adjust the sensitvity

Make it 3?    
#36 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Only weak part of Dead Space, in my opinion.

#37 Posted by memo (421 posts) -

Hell ya that part sucks.  I remember I kept failing at it and i raged quit and did play in in a couple days.  When back to it pissed me off again and I still don't know how I passed that it was just luck.  There is no tips for it just keep going at it and eventually you will pass it

#38 Posted by Slaker117 (4842 posts) -

It was annoying, especially when going for the achievement, but I don't remember it being all the difficult.

#39 Posted by 49th (2763 posts) -

Beat the first turret part on my second try on normal. It was challenging and to be honest I only had about 10 life remaining, but still managed it. The second turret bit I beat on my first try, I didn't like it as much as the first part though, which I actually thought was pretty cool. Especially when it starts auto-aiming at the asteroids, that was awesome -  I watched it for about 3 minutes.

i thought it was a nice change of pace. Anyone that had trouble with it probably just sucks.

They may suck
Or they might be complete assholes
Perhaps they are cunts
Vaginas even

Or maybe the section isn't very good

Agreed, I thought it bit so much in that game that I completely repressed that part of Dead Space until someone brought it up either in a bombcast or quick look here on the site (Brad if I recall).
