Dead Space: Extraction
Description official description
Acting as a prequel to 2008's Dead Space, Extraction tells the story of four colonists caught at the start of the spreading infection. The player jumps between these characters throughout the game, and travels from the Aegis VII colony to the USG Ishimura; both locations from the original game. Two player co-op is also available.
Gameplay is handled as an on-rails shooter. The player has no active control over their movement, and limited control over their view. In the Wii version, the Wiimote is used to handle weapons from the original game, with gestures like turning the remote sideways used to switch to a secondary fire mode, or holding the remote up to your ear to play discovered audio logs. The touted "strategic dismemberment" system from Dead Space also returns here, requiring careful aim against limbs to reliably take creatures down.

1001 Video Games
The Wii version of Dead Space Extraction appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
Just like in the original game, the first letters of the chapter names spell out a phrase. In Dead Space: Extraction, it's "WARREN LIES". This refers to one of the main characters.
In the German version all cut off limbs of humans, scripted sequences in which humans die and a part of the last boss fight were removed.
