Woop.

Dammit so close.

Posted by Keavy_Rain

Ehh, it should be free for everyone, regardless of pre-order.
 
Dead Rising 2 Case Zero was worth $5 because it gave us something more than just "Challenging mini-games" and "An exclusive outfit." It gave us the new engine in a small game, which allowed us to see how the changes affected the game. This...this is nothing.

I fucking hate that quest so much.

While the price is right, I'm still not sure about the game itself.  Very much looking forward to Dead Space 2 though.

nope.

I'm all for this whole interactive comic book stuff, but does the artwork have to be so bad?

Posted by MisterMouse

proportions seem off for the girl...

Posted by commandercup

Seems somewhat interesting although that shooting animation at the end failed hard

Posted by tourgen

no
 
they've got work to do to convince me that Dead Space 2 will be good after taking Isaac off the ship.  This isn't how to sell the new game to people.

Does anyone else think it seems weird to add in that it's an "isaac" suit? Hmm...

I'm getting DS2 at such an amazing discount, I won't have a good reason to preorder. $5 for this is too much.

So... you would've preferred they kept him ON the ship? For the second game? Really? You really wanted to explore that entire ship a second time?

This looks so fucking weird, but I want to check it out just for the sake of it. So where I can pre-order to get this? Amazon isn't listting anything right now.

Online

I love Dead Space but all the animation stuff sucks. The movie they released along with the first game was garbage and this looks like garbage as well. C'mon EA everyone loved Dead Space don't ruin it with this crap.

Damn thought you were giving out codes.

MINI GAMES! "ANIMATION"! SUSPENSE!

Roll credits. 
 
Sorry guys, didn't mean to spoil anything. 
 
 
EDIT: Should be *Zap* or *Pachewewewooo*

That sucks for the rest of the decent people who were trying to get the First quest.

Posted by Tr4gic_H3r0

Even with this being free, I still dont want it.

Posted by Rawrnosaurous

I'm concerned with the fact that when it said 'free' with preorder it always had to say *restrictions apply.
What are these restrictions? Also, this prequel has to go against case 0 which was a prequel and an actual game. This is comic book cutscenes and mini-games why would I want to spend money on this when the same money could have bought me case 0?

Oh my - like others have said, I love Dead Space, but this looks as bad as the Watchmen "animated" comics. There really isn't any animation at all - just stills moving around. The Mini-games might be fun, but calling this "animated" is a joke. That said, it still might be good, and this should in no way be indicative of the quality of Dead Space 2, but jeez does this look AWFUL (from an animation standpoint).

Haven't heard anything about this free pre-order offer in AU yet, but it does take time to filter down..

Or this is created to generate pre orders?

While I think the artwork is decent, I really hate the "animation". I mean, seriously, even South Park does a better job. 
 
Watching this even makes me kinda sick, so it's a definite pass for me.

Posted by Bennyishere

Free is 20 dollars too much.

@Keavy_Rain:  
 
should be free and likely should have been a web game.

Fact: Necromorphs won't bother you while your playing mini-games.

Posted by BetonneTom

looks like a pretty good deal

I feel like every time I turn on my Xbox  there is a 
hand popping out of it asking me to pay more cash
for something.  It almost feels like spam these days!

Posted by Khalen

I was actually hoping for another great animation movie as prequel..

"Fuck yeah, I love Wii Table Tennis!"

@SuperSambo:  in that sense, it's about equal to Fable II Pub Games.

Didn't say that.  I said they have to convince me the new setting & story off the ship will be any good.  This thing here doesn't do that.

'Animated' adventure 'ey? Stupid crappy trailers squirting bullshit every where, a child could of made the animations, you never see any characters blink or open their mouth, just extremely simple movements like moving their head to one side or moving their arm a couple inches.
