Those purchasing the Limited Edition of the game will find a code to unlock a couple of stylish protective suits and the evangelizer and negotiator weapons.

Overall, Dead Space 3 delivers another round of harsh and visceral interactivity for the mature gamer, worthy of the franchise and often as bone-chilling as climbing the cliffs of Tau Volantis.

Parental advice: Hey mom and dad, the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) took great pains to label this game “M” and that stands for mature — it’s advised that adults 17-years and older need only wield an onscreen Knee Capper here. So don’t let your 13–year old convince you that “I’m just shooting a bunch of monsters.” The volleys of violence and excessive levels of grotesque are a startling concoction that will make a lesser adult’s hair fall out from shock.
