Dead Space 3 review: engineering violence | Polygon

Check out Polygon’s review!

Dead Space 3 opens with series protagonist Isaac Clarke in hiding, as he tries to forget the horrors of the Marker, an alien artifact that causes insanity and, later, an awful post-mortem mutation called necromorphism. Isaac is pulled from his hole to help find the origin of the Marker’s powerful signal on the forgotten iceball Tau Volantis, but he’s on borrowed time — the Marker-inspired religious cult of Unitology has declared Isaac a heretic condemned to death. And at the center of Isaac’s search lies Ellie, a fellow survivor — and more to Isaac — who led an expedition to Tau Volantis that’s gone silent.
