    As a fellow Dead Space 3 player, I hope EA will make a patch for Dead Space 3 suits because most of us players are upset with the suits. They do not do anything special like give us players enhancements or bonus such weapon damage or armor like the previous Dead Spaces. I believe with the various suits in game and on PSN or XBOX store it should applicable. Thank you.

    I would like to report what I think is a flaw in the Dead Space 3 Xbox game--maybe I'm wrong here, but here goes. Having played Zealot on DS2, I knew what to expect if I started off on that level on DS3. But, much to my suprise I found the latter so cranked up on Normal that I have to believe this baby and the highest level of this game were switched at birth. I just couldn't believe the absolute dearth of health and ammo and the almost obsessive need to foist upon a player all of those useless transducers, etc. Which brings me to another sore point. In Zealot on DS2 I had my main weapon of choice upgraded to the max by about the middle of the game; not so with DS3. And the enemies on DS2 Zealot were almost genteel compared to those in DS3. Maybe I missed something. Did all those gamers that bragged that they went all the way through DS2 Zealot without getting killed even once instil in EA Devs a burning desire to get back at us? Well, you certainly did. I'm on the final chapter and I will try to get through to the end, but with absolutely nothing in my inventory and even though I bought upgrades at the store I don't see how I will. It might seem like I'm whining, but on the highest level of Halo you at least have one chance in hell of going all the way through the game. Also, please make a patch for the weird aiming problem that makes Issac aim about as well as someone suffering from the DTs.

    Well im glad we have ds3 but it just feels like a shell of what the first two captured. i know they wanted to catch a larger audince and maximize profits and such. But as i set my copy of what resembles a dead space game on my shelf. im left with unsatisfaction. i was hoping they wouldint water it down but to my unfortunant dismay that is what happend. i know some people love it as it is. and some have similar opinions to mine. i loved the horror and dark themes deadspace brought. a dark harbinger of fright and panic. I remember actually jumping in my chair as necro's assaulted me on the ishimura , my rig indicating my impending doom.That was what i loved. I hope redemption lies with the upcoming dlc's. My god i love you for Mass Effect and dragon age and so forth. But please EA dont play with us like this.

    I really like this game, but the ending mission....that's impossible. That useless end had ruined the entire game!

    I'll admit, EA, this game was ******. But when you complete the storyline, you're left with that unsatisfied feeling that you probably won't play it again for a long time. Do you know why this is? NO FREEPLAY!!! I waited from when Dead Space came out in 2008 for an offline mode such as survival or some kind of skirmish mode, you know, with computerized enemies. If you would have had some good offline replay value like this, there's no doubt that Dead Space 3 would have been rated a 10 instead of 9.75.

    I am a single dad and very hard working, I love the Dead Space franchise, but I give up in trying to save the game and come back to face what I have already died for twenty times in a row before finally beating it. How dare you! What's the point? That, and the weapons thing is totally anti-intuitive, I made an awesome shotgun and cant use it anywhere! I'm sure you computer guys are using it fine, but I used to be able to play this! Returning it to store, never thought I would ever say that. IE

    OK, in all fairness, I revisited the game, because I pre-ordered Dead Space 3 and love the game so much that I did figure out the weapons and supplies bench; actually a cool tool once you understand that each weapons combination is limited to an unseen set of rules; I get it now. I did overlook the addition of the "scene selection" option at start-up but I still think it's more complicated than it needs to be especially because it looks like the old save game. Back to awesome, so far.
