The Dead Space remake was well received by players whether old or new to the scifi horror slice ’em up. EA are now seemingly asking a handful of players if they would therefore like the same remake treatment applied to Dead Space 2 and 3.
Screenshots of the survey were shared on Twitter by the developer of Gloomwood. They show two questions, asking how interested the respondent would be in a “similar remake” to Dead Space 2 or Dead Space 3, with available answers ranging from “not at all interested” to “extremely interested”.
Dead Space 2 is broadly liked, often more so than the original Dead Space. That was the conclusion Jim drew in his Dead Space 2 review (while also ultimately deciding that there was “nothing much here that I’ll be talking about in arguments over the legacies of great games a few years from now”). Dead Space 3 was generally less favorably received, as it seemed to abandon some of the tenets of the series, though Adam still broadly enjoyed his time in his Dead Space 3 review. (Which also had a great strap: “The Limbless And Clarke Expedition”.)
I haven’t seen the full survey EA have sent out, but I hope it includes other questions like, “would you like an actual new Dead Space game?” or “would you like a Dead Space 2 but one that’s not a remake?” or “on a scale of great to very great, how great is Physical: 100 on Netflix?”. (I haven’t played any Deads Space so a question I could answer would be nice.)
