Dead Space: Extraction
Dead Space: Extraction
Fist off, this is a rail shooter. This is not a first person shooter. Now that that is out of the way; this game is a lot of fun. The basic story is you are on an alien planet and all hell breaks lose. The voice acting is OK and the story is as good as any. So far (I have not finished the game) it is the typical every one is going crazy and killing people. Then weird aliens show up with more death and destruction.
I use a Nyko Perfect shot to play this game. The controls are great. If you are using the Perfect shot or the Zapper be sure to update the settings in the game options. You fire your gun with the B button or hold the wiimote sideways to get alternate fire mode. You use the nunchuck to reload your gun by shaking it. The Z button grabs things like ammo and health packs. But it also will grab objects that you can then shoot them to throw the item. The C button shoots a freeze ray the will stop baddies in their tracks. The joystick on the nuncuck switches guns. If you point the wiimote off screen and shake the nunchuck you get a melee attack.
Most of the enemy can be stopped by shooting off their legs and arms. This is a cool effect. There are also a lot of things you can grab in every scene. The puzzles are well done and seem to fit in. In one scene you have to solder a control board to fix a lift while you are shooting a whole butch of baddies.
The graphics are dark, very dark. I had to adjust the brightness for it to look right on my TV.
The people look great. They did a good job with the models. The enemies look awesome. There are a lot of types of baddies and they all look like they mean business.
The environments are well done with lots of little touches.
It is a fun game.
There is a lot more going on then just shooting everything that moves.
Shooting off limbs is just cool.
Does every rail shooter have to be about the undead?
Over all I would give it a 9/10. The addition of more ways to interact with the game, i.e. grabbing stuff, 2 fire modes, freezing things, ect., really sets this apart from other rail shooters.

Not a bad review, simple and to the point but may I add:
The Flamethrower kicks major ass use it along with melee attacks and you'll never get hit once and the bonus material you unlock (comics) helps explain what happens before the events in the game.

Good reviews I guess I am going to have to try it out.
I felt the v/o to be pretty bad, with lots of cheesy dialogue. But that's just me. I've played through the game a few times but I still don't understand anything, the ending was really random and confusing. Pretty good review though.
Did you watch the comics they somewhat explain what happens before the game and I agree the ending was kinda crap.
Sounds good, just bought a Nyko Perfect Shot from eBay to kick some alien ass!!!!!!
I did watch the comics, it explained a little bit but not enough to get a full understanding.
