House of the dead... in SPACCEEEE ~acee ~accee

Okay: If you're into house of the dead, that's great. This game is right up your alley. The Deviation from the original "Dead Space" is immediately noticeable.

Its got your "auto move", which was a terrible idea. you use your nifty little tractor beam to make spirited attempts at picking up ammo as your character automatically runs by it.

It wasn't scary, whatsoever. Part of my enjoyment of the original dead space was wondering when that crazy tentacle was going to burst from a wall and tear me to bits

I seriously played this game for maybe.... 45 minutes... before being fed up with it and turning it off. Sent back 30 minutes later.

Don't waste your rental time on this junk.

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.

This is a great addition to the Dead Space franchise in terms of story telling. The only real downside from using the rail shooter perspective is that the extreme sense of fear and helplessness is taken away. You will no longer feel the sense of terror as you go intp the next room since you can't control movement. The only reason i didn't given this game an 8 is its length. Six and a half hours is unacceptable for a $50 game. Makes me appreciate that i rented it with Gamefly.

Story: 8/10 Good but not even remotley as scary as the original.
Gameplay: 6/10 Not many option being on rails. Takes away from the horror aspects of the environment.
Sound: 7/10 Almost as good as the original. Listening to audio logs with the wiimote while playing is difficult at best.
Replay Value: 7/10 Given its short length you might as well replay it. Diffent paths are available occasionally.
