Dead Space: Extraction

Thunderbolt Games
29 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Adding to the short list of Wii titles not concerned with family-friendly themes is Dead Space: Extraction , a game largely concerned with shooting the limbs off of unholy and horribly mutated hordes of resurrected human corpses. Serving as a prequel to 2008’s excellent Dead Space , this rail-shooter stays true to the original’s atmosphere and inserts itself neatly into the franchise’s canon.

Dead Space Extraction

The Gamers Temple
17 December 2009
  • Excerpt: By Kevin "Berserker" Hall Player(s): 1-2 (local only) If you were consumed in the hype for Resident Evil 5 last year and skipped over Dead Space in the process then go get it now. You just skipped over one of the best horror action games of all time. Dead Space used the familiar Resident Evil 4 gameplay engine along with an even creepier atmosphere to make a very memorable action horror that should be played by all horror fans.

Dead Space: Extraction (Wii)

ccgr.org
8 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Strong Points: Graphically pushes the Wii, easy controls that never caused problems, sound used heavily to add to the already horrific atmosphere. Weak Points: Too easy on standard settings, several glitches and frame rate drops, becomes repetitive at the end. Moral Warnings: Intense, bloody violence and gore, foul language used frequently, nudity tossed in for no apparent reason. This is a very fair and accurate review.
  • Pros: Graphically pushes the Wii, easy controls that never caused problems, sound used heavily to add to the already horrific atmosphere.
  • Cons: Too easy on standard settings, several glitches and frame rate drops, becomes repetitive at the end.

Test Dead Space Extraction

Generation NT
7 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Les développeurs de Dead Space Extraction ont habilement jouer la carte du changement. Les joueurs Wii pourront leur être reconnaissant de ne pas s'être contenté d'un simple copier-coller. Cette version Wii bénéficie donc des mêmes soins qu'a reçu celle des autres plate-formes. Cette attention apportera la sensation aux joueurs Wii d'avoir été pris en compte, eux et leurs attentes, ce qui devrait donc être un atout supplémentaire pour ce jeu.
  • Pros: Un jeu à part entière et non une simple adaptation, L'ambiance, Une mise en scène passionnante, Le passage en rail shooter, La bande son
  • Cons: Durée de vie

Spore

Square-Go
3 December 2009
  • Excerpt: The most highly anticipated game in recent history, Spore, was released this month. Why all the excitement? Spore is the latest game from Will Wright, creator of The Sims — the bestselling PC series of all time. Like its predecessor, Spore pushes the boundaries of contemporary game technology, and capitalises on new, novel trends. In Spore , players guide a creature through its evolution as a species.

Gory, mature sci-fi shooter for the Wii delivers thrills.

Common Sense Media
28 November 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that there are few "Mature"-rated video games for the Nintendo Wii, and this is one of them. As one of four marines in deep space, players fight against nasty aliens from a first-person perspective -- by shooting at them with an assortment of sci-fi weapons. As a result, these creatures blow apart and splatter blood, plus players can target body parts and dismember or decapitate them.

Dead Space: Extraction

Square-Go
27 November 2009
  • Excerpt: There’s a reason not many games are ported from Xbox / PS3 to the Wii, the power of everyone’s favourite white box simply isn’t up to handling the graphics of many PS2 games, never mind those of the newest console generation. So it was with some trepidation that we approached Dead Space: Extraction , not so much a straight port of the 2008 Xbox critical hit, but a prequel that converts the gory 3rd person shooter into an old-fashioned on-rails shooting gallery akin to...

Dead Space Extraction

Game Boyz
23 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Released last year to favorable reviews, Dead Space was a fresh take on the horror/action genre. Unfortunately for Wii fans the game was released only on competing consoles. Thankfully Dead Space Extraction fills this void in the form of a prequel to the original. This new story adds a unique control scheme for the Wii and a new viewpoint as well. How does it stack up? Extremely well in my opinion. If you want more details on what I thought read on for the gory details.

Dead Space: Extraction

D+PAD
16 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Dead Space: Extraction is a welcome shot in the arm for the Wii, which has arguably been lacking these sorts of experiences since its very inception. A must for all Dead Space fans, then, but what it lacks in scares and scale it makes up for in visceral heart-pounding action. Whilst a little short, there’s plenty of replay value here with alternate routes and the top grades for each level to aim for.
