Rating summary: This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of Isaac Clarke, an engineer battling a mysterious alien threat. Players use futuristic weapons (e.g., guns that fire explosives, spikes, incendiary shots) to kill various alien creatures and human enemies. The frenetic combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire and screams of pain. Players can also employ melee kills at close range: hand-to-hand combat, stomping down on enemies, using the butt of a weapon to eliminate adversaries. Blood-splatter effects occur when characters incur damage, and some environments depict blood-splattered floors and mutilated bodies; enemies can be seen impaled, decapitated, and dismembered during the game. The words 'f**k,' 'sh*t,' and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.

Dead Space 3” is currently being developed by Visceral Games, the same studio that worked on the previous entries in addition to the “James Bond 007” “The Godfather” “The Lord of the Rings” titles. Electronic Arts will be publishing the latest video game in the “Dead Space” series.

“Dead Space 3” will be released for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 gaming platforms in North America on Feb. 5, 2013. You can pre-order the third-person shooter survival-horror video game in the following link: “Dead Space 3”
