Hopefully you understand what a rail-shooter is before renting this game and giving it a low score because you're not in complete control of the characters movement. Anyways, for those who do understand, this is a really good game. The story is a great complement to the ps3/360 version of Dead Space. This prequel puts you in situations that you will find coincide with the original game. The voice acting is very good, and although graphicly the Wii is not up to ps3/360 standards the visuals are some of the best for the Wii platform that I've seen. The controls are done very well with the Wiimote, and never felt restricted or choppy to me throughout the game. I loved the original, and this new game is a fresh look at Dead Space in my opinion.
i rented this game hoping for a good scare around halloween. other tittles had nicely impressed me like resident evil 5 and house of the dead overkill. i had played some of the original dead space with a friend and found it interesting and wanted to try something simular. so naturally tried this tittle with a couple friends. we played through the first four levels before i finally asked them if they were enjoying the game, i wasn't. they agreed that it was just not that interesting. i couldn't see through the cross hairs on the game, the plot was flighty, and the intensity of a horror game just wasn't there. on a positive note the graphics were descent for a wii game and controls were ok. we spent most of our time just grappling random things until we picked up something good. just not an interesting game. glad i rented and didn't buy.
