Rated 10 out of 10 by PunisherGX An Amazing game that shows the other side.
An Amazing game that shows the other side. From my personal stand point of the first dead space and the dead space movie itself , dead space extraction puts you in the shoes of the colonist and other survivers at the moment that the terror of undiscribable demon like creatures and crazy thoughts started. So basicaly this game is about what happened from the begining to were Issac and his crew mates bored the ship were the first dead space game took place. In this game you have access to weapons that security personal would only have and more. Like the P-SEC pistol with its high rate of fire and a 3 shot secondary fire ,and it is a weapon that you dont get to use in the first dead space. The one sure thing is story , it will make you understand what happened but at the same time make you wonder. I recomend you see the dead space movie then play the first dead spce then play dead spce extraction and you will end up with the same feeling i had after it all. I was disturebed yet drawn in by the one simple question what will happen next.

As far as Dead Space goes, I loved the first one. It was scary and just fun all around. However, turning it into a Rail Shooter seems to take the fun out of it. I enjoyed wandering in the darkness only to have something jump out behind me and start munching on the back of my head (especially when in the store). With this, it doesn't seem like you get the chance to have that feeling of panic after ten minutes of no enemies and all of a sudden you're jumped by something that wants your feet for dinner. This isn't to say I'm not excited about this game. It is Dead Space, and I can't wait to give this a try. I would like to see what went down on the colony before everything went SNAFU. Also, can't wait to see what is in store for Isaac in the future Dead Space games. As the creator commented that Isaac would not be killed off in the first game.

The first Dead Space game for the Xbox360, PS3 and Windows PC was a fantastic departure from what EA has been accustomed to the in past which is to stick with the "safe" cookie-cutter games we have all grown tired of. EA Red Shores developed the first game and it's easily on par with the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises in terms of gameplay, graphics, atmosphere and sound. It's a shame that Wii owners did not get to play through that adventure, but Extraction will be a great way to bring this rich gaming universe to Wii owners. Don't be put off by the "on-rails-shooter" comments. The first Dead Space was very linear in the way the game was played, so the fact Extraction will be on rails doesn't mean it should be immediately dismissed. It will still be scary and it will still be fun. This one is a must-buy for me!

Dead Space: Extraction is the best rail shooter I've ever played. The graphics are amazing, even though it's a Wii game. If you've seen the anime feature, then you already have an idea of what this game's story is about. I won't spoil anything, but it definitely grabs you. I wouldn't say it's quite as scary as the original Dead Space, but it's still creepy. The controls take some getting used to as they aren't really intuitive (except for pointing and shooting of course). Trying to remember what button does what while four or five necromorphs are charging at you can leave you feeling a little flustered. But that's the whole point. Very pleased with this game. I think it's a nice addition to the mature titles for the Wii. Using the wiimote adds a new dimension of gameplay that you couldn't get on the 360 or PS3.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Duster Limited but intense..
However this may not have been a very long game, and It only took me a couple hours a day to beat it. It still had it's challenges and gripping storyline. I found it to be a little creepy, very graphical (esspecially for the Wii), and highley entertaining. This was literally the only thing I played on my Wii was Dead Space until I beat it. After that it was a little dissapointing how short it was but otherwise wow simply amazing, they should make another for this game. However it could use more freedom like being able to go where you want and more puzzles with more complex solutions rather than the simple run and gun and the occacsional "ohh a puzzle" here and there. If they make another (which they should) I would recommend the ability with the classic controler, and more mobility.
Rated 8 out of 10 by SIN-Toast-CrUnCh Feels like dead space(on rails)
graphically this game looks pretty sweet, obviously due to the fact that it steers you along the game which is definitely reminiscent of the arcade classic area 51 w00t w00t! but it looks awesome probably some of the best graphics churned out by third-party studios. a lot of the shooters cept for RE4 and conduit are pretty unbearable to look at let alone control....the on the rail feature def makes this an accessible shooter for those mature gamers...btw they seem pretty liberal in dropping the F-bomb which makes for a nice laugh as you rip someones body apart with the plasma cutter. haven't got into the story enough to say anything on it....but it has a good amount of intensity in the first 10 min of play..and all the creepy DS sounds, whispers and music are there further adding to the enviroment. another added twist is your altered state of reality which will have you shotting and things not there. although being OTR there are times you are given the option to look around to pick up items and when in zero g to jump from place to place. there are some other do-dads that require use of motion for the "chuck" and the remote. can't wait to jump back into this one...def worth getting if you liked the first dead space.
Rated 10 out of 10 by selfdeztruction. An Early Review
I was excited about this game but i didn't reserve it until i read that the campaign lasts 8-9 hours which is a long time for an on rails shooter. Those 8-9 hours doesn't even account for the challenge mode that spans 2 1/2 hours on it own too beef the game length up to 11 1/2 hours. The challenge mode is 10 different challenges that are around 15 minutes each and those challenges house the most brutal combat in the game There is also a motion comic included on the disc that has about an hours worth of content (12 1/2 hours now). As for as horror and gore nothing Compares to seeing the dismemberment via first person mode here and keeping the monsters at bay while welding metal platting to block openings in the room that other monsters can enter through looks insanely intense. The graphics look amazing and everything looks great especially when you are slicing and dicing the monsters. The sound is awesome and cranks up the intensity and horror factor The interface is really clean and minimalistic and doesn't distract from the action. I personally can't wait until the night when i get this game and I can turn the lights off,crank up the surround sound and spend all night blasting monsters apart with a zapper in each hand.

Firstly, Dead Space was a good game. It has a metacritic score of 89 so we can safely say that the majority of reviews were positive. If you disagree that places you in the minority. Just sayin' is all... Like many of you, I was a bit perplexed when they announced the format for this game (not to mention the system it was being released on) but after seeing the first level in action on IGN I can say it looks like it will be a fun play through. I can accept the argument that the new format robs the game of some of that fear factor it had before when the pace of exploration was set by the player but I'm sure there will be moments to make you jump and some QTE style events like in the first game. My hope is that we can run into some of the characters we ran into via audio logs in Dead Space or at least collect more logs from the same characters --particularly Jacob Temple or Elizabeth Cross; this would help to (necrotic)flesh out the story a good deal. I wasn't too buzzed about this game but seeing it in action has restored some confidence. I'll rent it and if it's decent I'll certainly be buying it and dusting off the rarely used Wii for a while. Sure this isn't the same experience that Dead Space was, but that doesn't mean it's going to be bad folks.
Rated 9 out of 10 by NightHunter118 One of the Wii's best games.
As surprising as it is (it being on the Wii and all) Dead Space: Extraction is actually a pretty great game. It's hard to find some really great games on the Wii, I for one am a fan of the Wii console (hence why I own one) but they don't really have much titles a hard core gamer like myself that are worth picking up, which is also why my Wii collection of games is small. Dead Space: Extraction is however one of Wii's best games on the market, even though it's a rail shooter (which I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about that.) It also plays a very important part in the Dead Space series. It's a great prequel. I definitely recommend this game to all Dead Space fans-trust me, you'll be surprised how enjoyable it is.
Rated 9 out of 10 by HdSP One of the greatest on-rail on the Wii
It is probably better if you can control your own movement like RE4 or Cursed Mountain, but on-rail shooting is still fun and very enjoyable in this game. Good: Deep storyline plus a remarkable voice/sound system guide you through the game. Lip-syn is perfect and the atmosphere of dangerous situation is awesome. Control is easy to use and cool, a second player can always jump in for added fire. 4 game mode from easy to impossible gives you some replay value. A stop-motion cartoon and a 10-stage challenge mode are interesting. Graphic is very good; blood, lightning, explosion effects... are well-done, everything seems to be high-res. Plus, a few ridiculously awesome bosses will blow you away.Bad: About 12 hours of good gameplay including extras still does not worth the price of ** bucks. This game should be priced at about **-** dollars. The stop-motion cartoon seems cheaply done. The monsters aren't scary though, really. No checkpoint system means the game force you to play one chapter (1/10 of your ** bucks) every time. Finally, more types of monster could make this game better.I would say this is a great game, but you should wait until they reduce its price, or get a used copy from Gamestop. Playing this game is like reading a horror novel with a 5 star storyline.
