Review: Dead Space 3: Awakened  photo
Review: Dead Space 3: Awakened
by Jim Sterling

It's very hard to believe a studio when it claims work never begun on a piece of downloadable content until after the main game was finished, especially when that DLC is a direct continuation of the story and was essentially teased at the end of the main campaign. Even if nobody started building code for it, it's clear the developer already planned it and was making notes well ahead of time. 

Dead Space 3: Awakened picks up right where Dead Space 3 left off, and reveals major plot points one would have expected at the end of the actual campaign. Its main story is so integral to the Dead Space story, in fact, that to play it would almost be seen as essential. 

Almost, but not necessary, it turns out. Because, for all the promise Awakened has, its relevant events could be explained in a single sentence.

Dead Space 3: Awakened is a return to survival horror

Overall, I really enjoyed Dead Space 3. There were points that it dragged on, but a lot of the stuff near the end in those last few levels made it up for me. Still, Dead Space 2 is my favorite of the franchise largely because...

Origin is currently offering between 30% to 50% off on every Dead Space game in their store. The first Dead Space is available for $10 as a PC download, and Dead Space 2 can be grabbed for $10 either as a PC download, or physical copy on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Dead Space 3 is on sale as well for $41.99 either as a PC download, or as a physical copy on PC or consoles. All the downloadable content for the newest entry in the series is also on sale, but come on. Don't buy that.

The Dead Space franchise sale ends on March 7. Head on over to Origin to nab a really awesome series for cheap.
