Almost perfect

Author: souidos75 from Sweden

It is a little strange that nobody has written a preview about this game so i thought i would do that. First of all, you should know that this is a rail shooter game which means first person but not being able to move forward or backwards. The game does this for you. The player though must be really quick because most of the times he has only a few seconds to pick up ammo or other items. The game begins at Aegis VII where a crew of miners are extracting the red marker...and...after a few all starts going to hell. I do not want to say anything about what happens because it is much better when you find out by yourself. The story is more than good and if you are a fan of dead space 1 and 2 then this is a must. It is the beginning after all. I think a 9 would be more appropriate but i give it a 10 because i am a big fan of the dead space franchise.

A half-decent throwaway shooter

Author: Shawn Watson from The Penumbra

The Wii motion controller inspired many developers to take advantage of the console with rail-shooter spin-offs of games that were successful on the PlayStation and Xbox. Dead Space, the chilling 2008 survival horror got its very own rail-shooter in the form of Dead Space: Extraction. It's not a great game, and you'll forget about it soon after playing, but it fills the time if you have some to spare.

The story takes place before the events of the first game aboard the Ishimura spaceship and switches the POV from about 5 different characters. There's not much atmosphere, and the lack of free movement can be quite frustrating. All you have to do is point and shoot at monsters, while frequently waiting through very long, unskippable dialogue scenes. It can get quite tedious and deters from playing levels again and again.

It's just not fast enough, or at least it's not fast in the right places. While the main series has a loyal fan following I can't see this disposable spin-off winning over any non-fans. I did find the character of Lexine to be impossible cute though.
