“Why won’t you just DIE?!”
This is probably a sentence that you’ll be thinking to yourself over and over again when you get a chance to play the Dead Space 3 demo. Or, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be screaming it at the TV in a mad panic just trying to stay alive yourself.
The demo gives you two options to whet your appetite before the 7th of February when the game is actually released.
You can go at it alone and give the single player a try, or play the same section of the game with a buddy – or in my case, some random stranger on Xbox Live.
Is this the Dead Space we’ve been waiting for?
