Dead Space: Extraction
amazing and scary
this game is the best shooter game i have ever played. the "arcade" controls are really good. This game is scary as heck especially when the zombies jump out at you. little kids should NOT play this game because they could get nightmares.
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.
deadspace wii extration
so awsome blood gross scary best one thing they should come out with bioshock for wii
Not that good
Extraction is a first-person rail shooter introducing new enemies, characters, weapons and environments to the Dead Space series. Players also have some degree of control over the camera. The game uses the pointer function of the Wii Remote for aiming at enemies and can also be controlled through the Wii Zapper. Twisting the Wii Remote or Wii Zapper activates a weapon's secondary firing mode, and swinging the Nunchuck (or shaking the zapper) can perform a melee attack or shake off enemies that have grabbed onto the player. Players can use a kinesis option at any time to make objects float, draw closer, or throw them at enemies. Kinesis can also be used to grab flying projectiles and fire them back.
I never knew.........
I NEVER played an on rails game before, but since the Wii is somewhat limited for awesome games, I decided to give this a try. Am I glad I did!! I really, really enjoyed this game!!! Being "on rails" means that you have no control over moving your character as the game moves you through automatically. But you do have control over everything else. Shooting, grabbing objects, opening doors and lockers, moving objects, and throwing objects. I got used to it pretty quick and now I am interested in other on rail games. The graphics are incredible for the Wii and the story is as well. I thought the game play was great too. Plenty of weapons to use, and you play with 4 different weapons at a time. You have to "snag" your ammo and other objects using kinesis, and I found this to be the most challenging part of the game since the camera doesn't stay still for long. If you see ammo or something else, you better grab it quick because the camera will move very soon - which is challenging when there are multiple objects to grab. You never get an over abundance of ammo, but you always have just enough. Plus one of the weapons (rivet gun) has unlimited ammo and you always have this to use. I was kind of surprised that there weren't more variety of enemies, but there were still 6-7 different ones, and you get to know what weapons work best on each. You also play as the other characters depending on what chapter you are on. There are no checkpoints so you have to play each chapter to save, which I guess makes it kind of challenging as opposed to say Call Of Duty where there is a checkpoint like every 5 minutes. This game is CREEEEPY so beware!!! I was always so nervous to play to play this but excited too because it is a great game. I would guess that the length is about 7 hours, so not too long. There are 4 different hardness levels to choose from which is great for just about everyone. I bought this used from GameStop for $20 and I think it is absolutely worth it if you like shooters. This is a first person shooter. I'm really bummed out that Dead Space 2 is not on the Wii platform, but I would still recommend this game. You cannot pass this up if you like shooters, on rail games, great stories, cheap price, or great graphics. You will not be disappointed!!
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.
This game is hard and it explains the events before dead space 1. I give this game 9.9 out of 10
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.
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.
Death on Rails
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.
