The storyline of Dead Space Extraction

The storyline of Dead Space Extraction

After scaring the hell out of Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 players, EA wants to give Wii players their share of fear with Dead Space Extraction, a rail shooter which will hopefully be just as exciting and terrifying. The development team tells us more about this prequel in this new trailer.

At the risk of sounding completely negative, who friggin' cares about Dead Space Extraction? An inferior, on-rails version of Dead Space? Thanks, but no thanks.

Yeah I don't see why the Wii couldn't have gotten the same game as the rest of us. But holy shit, the production values for this game are high. The voice acting was pretty awful, but the game looks and sounds awesome. Considering the hardware they got to work with, its impressive. But yeah, a proper version of Dead Space would have been the survival horror one.

I'm looking forward to Extraction.

The Dead Space universe has been cool so far, and honestly I cannot get enough of it. Top it off, the one serious flaw in the original Dead Space, was the lack of character development and the lack of a character driven plot. It's that type of thing that separates the good games from the AAA crowd. Judging from the developer diary, EA has addressed that issue, which on some levels should make Extraction a better game than the original.

Yeah its a rail shooter, but so long as it is a good rail shooter, which piles on the creepy atmosphere like the first game, plus joins the web comic and anime in filling out the Dead Space universe with more relevant stuff, why complain?

I'll happily pick this up next month. Looking forward to see how this thing performs running in 1080p under Dolphin anyway. Which all things considered, is going to be my preferred way to play the game anyway.

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth user reviews are sorta problematic too as early reviews are affected by things like server problems the first hours or days, while late reviews are often from people with hundreds of hours played, (15 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I bet it scores mid 9's. Metacritic user reviews so far are pretty funny in the negative column (18 minutes ago)
