After stomping up corpses on the Necromorph-infested USG Ishimura, and stomping up corpses on the Necromorph-infested space station known as The Sprawl, old Isaac Clarke could probably do with a break. Instead, Dead Space 3 sees him heading to the wintry planet of Tau Volantis, to - you guessed it - stomp up corpses with his big clumsy engineer feet.

This time, however, he's brought a friend, or at the very least a like-minded frenemy. In the action-horror game's new co-op mode, player 2 inhabits the body of EarthGov Sergeant John Carver, a man equally as mad as poor Isaac. Other new features include a comprehensive weapon-crafting system, scutter-like scavenger bots and, er, micro-transactions. Luckily, there's no real need to use them.
