    Named Dead Space Extraction, the game is a prequel to the original Dead Space. It's a first person on-rails shooter like HoTD:Overkill. The strategic dismemberment mechanics are present and all the weapons from the 360/PS3/PC game + teleknesis and stasis. Don't know exactly how, but puzzles are confirmed to the game. Co-op mode also confirmed. Graphics are quite impressive for the Wii.

    So after all graphics were not the problem in bringing Dead Space to Wii, unlike many said... Still I would have loved to use the pointer in third-person with free movement but like in UmbrellaChronicles this could turn out to be great. I hope that it will sell well, so we eventually get a "real" Dead Space even though I find on-rail-shooter great [​IMG]

    Damn, on rails huh?

    Well if EA shown this trailer without the Dead Space name attached I'd be pretty hype about it but whatever it looks great and at least its not a port shoehorned onto the Wii. Another 3rd party Wii game to take an interest in. [​IMG]

    I hope the puzzle elements & strategic dismemberment mechanics add to the genre.

    I've gotta say I'm pleasantly surprised. The game's concept actually makes a lot of sense now.
    Hell, if they're doing it right, this could even kick HotD Overkill's ass.

    Come on. It does look great for a Wii game, but the graphics still are nowhere near those of the 360 or PC versions. I'm still convinced that if this was a straight port of Dead Space, the experience would be nowhere near as intense.
    And "we" already got a "real" Dead Space, what else would the PC and 360 versions be? Not everyone around here is unambitious enough to only own a Wii in the year 2009.
    Don't take it personal, but expecting EA to port Dead Space to the Wii just because you still haven't got around to buying a 360 yet is cheee-heeaaap. Game developers have limited resources, and if they end up spending most of them on Wii ports of games that were never meant to be on the Wii, that really sucks. This one at least makes sense, because it's a different game than the original Dead Space. The only reason why people believe a straight port of Dead Space is actually an option at this point is because some news source was full of bullshit and called this game a port, when clearly it's not a port at all.
    Also, they probably did opt for on-rail-shooting gameplay instead of 3rd-person gameplay for a reason, so something tells me it's more likely than not that there won't ever be a "real" Dead Space on the Wii.

    Weird, I thought I would be disappointed about the graphics.. but they're great. Instead I'm disappointed for it being on rails, the third person camera would work great :/

    Although, after playing Overkill, I think this will be a pretty fun game, the dismemberment mechanics should work well with the genre. I'm really curious to see how they'll fit puzzles and the stasis mechanics in that.

    Looking good, nice graphics and the zombies looked quite scary.
    It's good more 3rd party developers are finally putting some more effort in the Wii.

    Wow, this looks awesome for Wii standards and considering that I absolutely love on rails shooters I hope it will turn out great!

    Absolutely, just play it with the Wiimote only.

    They're not zombies, they're aliens and they invaded a human space station.

    Can't handle what? The one thing people were afraid was the graphics in the thing.. and they turned out to be great! Why the hell EA decided to make it a on-rails shooter I have no idea.. [​IMG]

    And I still think it has nothing to do with the graphic. As far as I can see in that video it could also be a downgraded-port of the 360-game if the character was visible just with weaker graphics but that wouldn`t take anything away from the experience. If is still dark and scary but that`s is still to be expirience... I mean this all is just theoretically and we won`t see a straight port of the "real" game for Wii (yet) but I am still not convinced with the argument, that Dead Space is just about graphics and that the gameplay wouldn`t be enhanced with a pointer...

    This is clearly still a Nintendo community (that`s how I still see it... [​IMG] ) and why somebody doesn`t own a system is really ones own business... And to call a not-360-owner unambitious is IMO really offending to everybody who doesn`t own the system, for whatever reason it is! Personally I find the software of the system just unappealing (except some interesting titel) and I have more fun with my Wii for sure. And I`m surely able to purchase one if I choose to, since it is just for 140€ around here... So money was never a reason not to choose the system (I rather buy a MD (with Sonic 1-3K) and a DC, which I did [​IMG])! As I said many time on other threads I´ve played MassEffect on the 360 (borrowed from a friend) and I thought that it would have been way better with less "first-saw-impressive" graphics and a pointer, because I experienced, that the visuals didn`t enhance my experience for more than an hour!

    So gameplay over graphics might not be a definite statement, because eventually it is a matter of taste but I sure think so [​IMG]

    Cheap? It's £10 for a plastic shell that will make nigh on negligible difference to the game.

    And when I saw 'original prequel', I was going wow inside. Then I saw 'on-rails' and just wondered why :\. Still, the trailer looks far more promising than I expected. If it's truly as scary as it looks, uses sound as effectively and keeps up those graphics it'll be above and beyond Umbrella Chronicles and Overkill already. Throw in a great story, some original, surprising moments and a variety of enemies, and it actually has potential to be very good.

    I can tell you why they went with an On-Rails shooter for the Wii version.

    Because of the graphics lol.

    The Wii does not have the processing power to allow for graphics like that to be handled on such a large scale of loading an entire area, where you can look wherever you like and go wherever you please. This way, they only have to make one path of an area, and hell, even the Creatures will be all laid out to jump out of the same place (just like most ORS's {on-rail shooters? Anyone?}) but it looks hella pretty. All they had to do was put in locational damage (for dismemberment purposes) and bam. Its your standard ORS, with prettier graphics, no need for AI or "level" design, and the processor can handle it.

    I think its a decent side-story game, from the looks of it, and i do enjoy me a good ORS. Still haven't played HotD:overkill (or 2/3 for that matter... on the wii anyway) but theres a good chance i'll be snagging all three of these in the near future (well 2 HotD games... and when DS comes out i'll grab that too)
