    Out today. Should be on it's way to my house now. I hate prequels, rail shooters, and playing games on the Wii, but I love Dead Space. :hs:

    Played through the first two chapters so far. It's pretty fun. It's nowhere near as good as Dead Space, but it definitely has a Dead Space feel to it. The voice acting and graphics aren't quite up to it's predecessor either. Still if you're a huge Dead Space fan or just a normal fan who happens to like rail shooters then this game is worth playing. I'd say if you're a typical shooter fan who wasn't really impressed with Dead Space then don't waste your time on this though. It's main draw is definitely the Dead Space atmosphere and lore.

    • GamePro (100/100): "An experience that's more captivating and engaging than any light-gun game I've ever played before. [The story] mirrors Dead Space's thoughtful dialogue, characterizations and pacing which is a good thing all around."
    • GameDaily (80/100): "Although we questioned EA's decision to do this, as well as bring Dead Space to the family centric Wii, everything clicks and the game's surprisingly enjoyable. Instead of conjuring up a cheesy narrative (as seen in other shooters like Ghost Squad), the developers put a lot of effort into the story and its characters."
    • Eurogamer (80/100): "Gameplay is straightforward, yet it's a refined familiarity, borrowing numerous elements from the original Dead Space in abundance while wrapping them around the well-worn demands of a typical on-rails shooter ... One area that definitely benefits from the on-rails nature of Extraction is the overall pacing. Sometimes you creep along agonisingly, other times it feels like the enemy onslaught is never going to end. There are few occasions where you don't come away feeling like your scraped through by the skin of your teeth, and even on the game's lowest 'Normal' difficulty, there's a definite sense of achievement when you get through."
    • Giant Bomb (60/100): "Extraction's marketing campaign would like you to think of it as a 'guided experience' that whisks you through the dramatic beginnings of the series' horrible space-monster outbreak, but in blunt terms, Extraction is an on-rails shooter. Blunter still: it's a light-gun game. These days, that's not a style of game serious game players usually gravitate toward. But keeping the genre's inherent restrictions in mind--not to mention the limitations of the Wii hardware -- Extraction is really pretty good, for what it is."

    Not good odds there. I like prequels, rail shooters, and playing games on the Wii, and only moderately like Dead Space. Will buy.

    Played through about half the game so far. It's fucking amazing. I thought the story would feel played out due to the fact that we've witnessed what happened prior to Dead Space several times already (via the comics, logs, and shitty anime), but Extraction fits in perfectly with the series. It's entertaining, is a quality piece of work, and is just plain fun to boot. I think Visceral may have just changed my feelings about prequels, rail shooters and even the Wii. I still have a nagging feeling that the game would be better as a 3rd person shooter on the 360, but prequel or not, I'm happy to own this game.

    The whole fact it takes place a few weeks before has me interested because I never checked out the movie/comic. Plus dismemberment is perfect for pointing on the Wii. Do you ever meet Isaac or anything

    I'm asking for it, but what is a "rail shooter"?

    Rail shooters essentially take away the user's ability to move freely in the game environment, progressing through the game as if the characters were on a set track or "rails."

    Think Time Crisis in arcades or Star Fox 64.

    Hmm. I'm not really sure. 6-8 hours, I think.

    The story was incredible. I definitely expect some of what happened in Extraction to carry over to Dead Space 2. :bowdown:

    Some reviewers were disappointed by the ending. You weren't?

    Not at all. Like the ending of Dead Space, I'm curious to know what actually happens afterward, but aside from that I thought it was just fine. I can't wait for Dead Space 2 now. I'm gonna be playing Extraction and DS1 over and over until then. :bowdown:

    :rofl: Are you kidding? Dead Space has been hailed as the best survival horror of this generation. They announced the prequel and the sequel immediately after the first one came out because it did so well. They're even making a live action movie based on it.
