Hmm. I didn't expect a video review for this.

Posted by dagas

Guided experience actually sounds good since I tend to get lost in video games all the time =P I pretty much need a waypoint to find where I'm supposed to go.

Graphics look decent for Wii, but like the guys said in the Bombcast, this is just an easy way to quickly release another DEAD SPACE, as I'm sure EA would like some more money from the franchise considering the first didn't sell as much as it deserved to.

Darkside Chronicles looks to have much more content satisfactory for a full price purchase instead of this rental.
Posted by Griddler

Mildly interested in this.

Edited by MeatSim

Doesn't seem like it's worth full price.

Posted by Kilnik

Hah. Nice use of the quote at the end... it really tied the room together.

Posted by Crono

While I don't have a Wii, I doubt I would be interested even if I did.  This type of experience is fine in an arcade, but when you bring it to a home on a console, it just doesn't seem like it would add up to a compelling experience worth its retail price tag.

I'm going to pass.

So is Dead Space Extraction loosely based on the prequel comics?  
 
That comic book cut scene looked a lot like the comic.  

Posted by coonce

yes! - nice review boys.

Posted by TheHBK

when Brad does videos, i cant help but notice he seems to always do the same thing with his hands.  I like the black hoody, you can barely see his man tits.

I love light gun games, ever since first playing the original House of the Dead in the arcades, hopefully i get  a chance to check this one out. :)
Posted by AllanIceman

Dead Space was awesome. This not so much.  I kinda just want to know the story.

Posted by Chewii101

This is how developers should make games for the Wii, instead of crappy minigame collections full of waggle time. 

Posted by Adziboy

Light gun games don't feel right without, well, a light gun. And the gun accessory for the Wii doesn't quite live up to what I wanted, so I never got it. They should've made an attachment which had some buttons on and maybe even an analog stick somehow (one hand for trigger and a button, left hand for analog stick and maybe a few buttons.) 
 
That'd be crazy fun.

Dont have a wii...Id pass anyway.

Posted by Claude

Much better information. I still might pick it up down the road. Could be a holiday pick up for me.

Posted by Al3xand3r

Did I mention how lame it is to shun a whole genre and its sub genres simply because you aren't into them? No? Well it's very, very lame. How about having someone who feels like that about the genre actually review such a game? That's pretty damn lame too.

The end of that video is a tease from the thing you we're excited about telling everyone about, on the bombcast.  
Wasn't it?
Posted by InFamous91

i'll probably buy when the price drops

Posted by CptBedlam

Gread video review, Brad.
 
I don't have a Wii so I'll probably never gonna play it. What happens in level 9? In the last bombcast Brad mentioned some kind of twist.

Posted by Carlos1408

Great review Brad! 
I'm a bit bored of rail shooters but yeah, this one doesn't look so bad. :D 
I still need to play the original Dead Space lol!

Posted by TheClap

eek! The comic sequence was creepy

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

I would get this if I had a wii.
Posted by Kohe321

Awesome review!

Online

My wii is going to continue to gather dust, doesnt look like anything i would like.  I like to be in control so Light Gun games drive me crazy!

Edited by Mikemcn

It looks surprisingly good, graphically that is.
Posted by ch3burashka

The animated comic from GT and the PAX comic are effing awesome: they capture the visceral mood of the game perfectly. Hmmm... maybe that's why they're called Visceral Games...

Edited by Media_Master

still... its deadspace on wii done right

Posted by yyZiggurat

I remember watching the animated comic on Dead Space's site.  I still need to buy that game.

Posted by DrRandle

"It's gonna be the same every time you play it" You mean like the majority of video games? Like Batman: Arkham Asylum? Or Metroid Prime? Does that make these bad games? I don't think so. You're review for this game was greatly underwhelming, Brad. We really need you to do less games on Nintendo consoles because the scores you give them seem to almost always just be off. I mean hell you gave Infamous a 5 star review, and that game is a pile of bad game designs.

Posted by DeadMonkeys

At the end of the video I was like:
"Oh.... oh shit..."
Was that the "SPOILAR!" that brad mentioned on the Bombcast?

fuck the haters, brad ownz

I'd rather have someone who is impartial to a genre review a game than someone who loves it and will glowingly recommend it. You will find out more about it, and get a better opinion. Besides, you should already know if you like this type of game, and make your own decision with the information given as to if it has enough to keep you interested.
 
Regardless, all of the reviews here are top notch, if you actually read them as well as use the video review to complement your reading of it. Not too sure why you're even complaining though, Brad's review was actually pretty positive for the most part.

This looks pretty fun. No Wii though. :(

Posted by SoothsayerGB

The Wii is trash.   They are getting desperate.
 
Dead Space Devs worked really hard to integrate the shooter's interface with the environment.   This trash, completely goes against their work.  For the sole purpose of making a profit off the few naive kids, stupid enough to buy this novelty kids toy. 
 
Nintendo completely slapped their original fans in the face with this console.  Now they are pandering to what remains.  

Posted by Fleshfeast

Brad comes close to referring to DSE as the best light gun game of all time in this week's podcast. I really don't think he hated it, not at all.

Posted by Zalasta

Since video reviews on GB are few and far between, just exactly what criteria is used to determine whether a game gets a video review or not?

Posted by Veektarius

I'm no great proponent of cuddly and colorful, but to my eyes, the Wii gets away with its graphics a lot better when it doesn't do things that require on subtle lighting touches so much - like Dead Space.

@Renegade, impartiality is certainly not what I was unhappy with, lol. Reread what you quote.

It's his personal opinion on the genre, and to be quite honest, he's right. Most people want more depth than what a light gun shooter has to offer, but it's good to see that Dead Space Extraction at least pulled it off appropriately.
Posted by TheEdge

whats that song that starts at 1.43?

Posted by 88Fingers

ugh! what a terrible system the wii is.
these low-res out of date graphics make my eyes bleed.
 
now all gather 'round and watch as another wii game tanks.
 
this'll be lucky if it sells 10,000 copies.
stop the madness! the wii is not a relevant system.
 
it's a plug 'n' play for housewives and grandmas.
 
 Nintenfail.

No thanks

You make a good point. Some games often seem like they're going to get video reviews but never do and others seem complete unexpected. The reviews seem to be all over the place in how often they are. Halo 3 ODST video review was posted on September 22nd and the review before that was Shadow Complex back in August and there's been gaps even longer than that (See post dates for Wolverine and RE5).

You'll get no where arguing/discussing anything with him regarding the Wii.

What were you complaining about then? Your comment clearly says you didn't like how they got someone who didn't like the genre to review the game.

Oh, sweet! The art in that comic sequence was done by Ben Templesmith! (the artist for 30 Days of Night)

Posted by Shadow

hm...I'm disappointed in this.  I was looking forward to some limb-severing goodness, but that doesn't seem like the main focus (even though it's there to an extent)
