Dead Space: Extraction: Nintendo Press Conference Impressions

We get another look at the upcoming Wii-exclusive sequel to Dead Space.

33 Comments

Touting its third-party collaborations, Nintendo used this morning's E3 conference to talk more about three of its upcoming Wii titles: Sega's The Conduit, Capcom's Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, and EA's Dead Space Extraction. Unfortunately, Nintendo said nothing new about the latter, save for airing a very short trailer.

No Caption Provided

A prequel to EA and Visceral Games' third-person action horror title Dead Space, Dead Space: Extraction has been built from the ground up exclusively for the Wii as a first-person shooter. The game explores a series of events taking place on the USG Ishimura, where you are part of a crew that arrives on the ship just as it undergoes quarantine for an unknown infection.

The very short trailer began with a look inside the USG Ishimura, showing different environments and wide-panning shots of rooms with scattered furniture.

This cut to the next shot, where we saw the necromorphs, which are human corpses transformed by the alien infection, dragging their mangled bodies toward the camera, all bloody and evil.

The next scenes overlapped with each other to show one of the new weapons in the game--the arch welder--in full use. The weapon shoots electricity that bounces from one necromorph to another when they're standing in close proximity.

Keep an eye out for more hands-on information of the game from this year's E3 show floor and our review of Dead Space: Extraction before its release on September 29.

Hardcore fanboy for the series, don't care if it's for Wii and it's on rail. Definite buy. Although, I hope they are making a Dead Space 2. A real sequel to Dead Space. So far anything released for Dead Space has been a prequel.

I'd be honest, i love onrail shooters, i missed em in the past, since they lacked on nintendo consoles... but really this is becoming tedious ^_^ we've got house of the dead trend and umbrella chronicles+ darkside chronicles... that more than enuff -.-

The wii doesn't target "children", it targets the majority of gamers, namly, families, yes kids, and generally, non-gamers... While I can still see it as a flop (no reason-I just see it that way since I hate EA made games..) it could do better than expected... Not in austrailia though-all they want is more tv based mini games and crappy wii fit deals... Now I think about it, while it's aimed at non-gamers, most of them are kids...btw I have a feeling this might not be on rails for once...

What a waste of a good game. Since the Wii targets children, I don't see it selling well. Since it's brutal and freaky.

getting sick of there being so many on-the-rails shooters lately...Resident Evil UC and Darkside, House of the Dead 2 and 3 and the new one, and now this. If its not AMAZING for an on-the-rails shooter...then I'll pass.

For those of you who don't know; Dead Space: Extraction is Dead Space without the fun.

The original Dead Space is a 9.5 for sure! Hope this comes out on PSN eventually.

Those alien infections always seem to make you bloody and evil.

Hmm, an on-rails shooter. I may give it a miss.

I have my reservations about the recent glut of Wii on-rails shooters.
