New game being developed by the same makers of the original dead space, only this time it's for Wii and it's a railgun shooter. Sounds exciting. Doesn't look bad at all for a Wii game.

Looks like a Wii game that might actually be worth buying. I doubt it'll be as good as the original Dead Space but at least they seem to have put some effort into this rail shooter.

Yeah I was a bit surprised at the quality of graphics considering the platform, but taking a Dead Space prequel and turning it into a Wii exclusive is pretty much a sacrilege IMO. A game like this benefits a lot from the 3rd person perspective replete with the miner's suit and tools you upgrade to survive the battle.

It just doesn't look the same without that extra dimension of immersion showing your evasive and offensive maneuvers as you unleash your wrath, complete with holographic targeting. By comparison the Wii prequel seems dumbed down to browser game level, as if one of those all too common website ads that has you gunning down a cartoon character with no more than an onscreen reticule. They even somewhat copied Epic's GoW precision reload.

The lack of realistic perspective sticks out like a sore thumb even more because they have fairly good graphics on this one. They'd been better off releasing this title to PC, PS3 and 360, and making a cartoon version for the Wii like the Downfall movie. OK, scratch that last part, it was sarcasm I just couldn't hold back. Why on Earth did they not just make it in 3rd or even 1st person with weapons, arms and targeting system visible? I know they've done that with CoD, then again, the more complex the game is on the Wii, the buggier it plays.

Well, I actually hated the perspective of Dead Space. The character blocked half the screen and it was difficult not to let the camera collide with the ceiling or other objects. I almost gave up on the game after the first 5 minutes due to this.

It has its benefits (if you can't see anything the sudden attacks of monsters are of course more intensive) but overall I prefer a FPS perspective for anything in closed buildings.

It's not a miner suit, your a technician. Well, im not so suer about that, as they've said they were going to make it so it's different everytime you play it. Because some people enjoy railgun shooters mabye??? I don't have a problem with it, it's got physics, pick ups, some nice baddies to tear up, and an intrigueing story, although this kind've creates a devastatingly large plothole, since their were no signs of another team and in the movie and it showed Isaacs team arriving particularly soon, not sure if that was just a meshed time lapse, but still, their were no signs of anyone before them... Unless im missing something and they came from the planets surface or something. Besides, their has been a quite nice amount of railgun shooters for the wii so far, such as Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and House of the Dead 2 & 3 Returns and now capcom is making ANOTHER railgun shooter based on RE2 for the Wii, i think this is great that their resurrecting a dieing genre, and i hope to continue to see it.

Actually Issac is an engineer, but the suit he wears, since they're on a ship that's all about hi tech mining, is called the CEC Mining Hazard Suit. Google it, the thing became so popular it is now a cheat you can unlock in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. Though obviously it's for humor in that case. The one exception is the highest level suit upgrade in the game, which is referred to as the Level 6 Military Suit. Personally I think the mining suit looks much better though. The weapons are also actually modified mining tools that were primarily made for cutting rock originally.

On dumbed down, I meant mainly the immersion in the context I was mentioning it. This game should not look like a mere browser-like floating cursor affair. It takes away vital immersion. In a game like this I want to feel like I'm in it, not outside looking in. It's just not at all the same. They made the original just right. It's so cool to see Issac in that suit whether it be slicing up the baddies or floating in a Zero G chamber.

I maintain, it's sad to see EA turn this franchise into a Wii exclusive, a real travesty of the horror genre. I don't think some players playing Extraction on the Wii will even realize how much work it took just to make all the many death animations there are in Dead Space 1, which is definitely one of the most engaging elements of the game visually. It's like they ripped the guts out of the game and left an empty shell.

They couldn't make the game for the Wii, so their doing it a service by making a completely new experiance for them, since i own a Wii, i'm excited rather then going "Awwww, the stupid Wii owners are getting an exclusive, damn!" which is probably what owners who only HAD a wii were saying about dead space on the 360/PS3 (and they might not of had a good enough computer to run it). Your being biased, ALOT might i add, and it adds an unfair degree to this arguement.

I have both a Wii and a PC and I can understand both sides. It is nice to finally see some games that are also suitable for adults on the Wii but due to the Wii's restrictions the game probably won't be as good as it would be for a PC or other console release.
