The Video Game Critic (Nov 29, 2009)
I was skeptical about Dead Space Extraction, but the more I played it, the more impressed I became. As a software developer, I really have to hand it to the team responsible for this. If you're an adult looking for an intense, high-quality shooter for your Wii, look no further.

Surprenant à plus d'un égard, Dead Space Extraction fait plus qu'honneur à son prestigieux prédécesseur. En conservant l'ambiance exceptionnelle de celui-ci tout en proposant un gameplay presque tout neuf, Visceral Games réussit là où Capcom échoue avec son Umbrella Chronicles. Beau, agréable à jouer et parfaitement bien mis en scène, ce Dead Space se pose clairement comme un épisode à ne pas manquer pour les fans de la licence comme pour tout amateur de frissons en général. On en oublierait presque sa durée de vie bien courte et ses quelques ralentissements, qui ne ternissent qu'assez peu le parfait mélange de deux genres moribonds (le rail shooter et le survival horror) que constitue ce Dead Space Extraction. Un titre à posséder en cette fin d'année sur Wii.
GameSpy (Sep 25, 2009)
The removal of player choice is anything but bad in Extraction; the minute components of the carefully crafted characters and engaging narrative would be all too easy to miss out on if I was too busy wondering whether to make a left or right turn. And hell, even if you aren't interested in the story, Extraction is still one of the best-looking and most fun action games on the Wii.
Cheat Happens (Oct 06, 2009)
To my surprise, Dead Space: Extraction is a great addition to the franchise, and successfully builds on the world the original created. By not relying too heavily on the system’s motion controls, the game is a responsive and creepy shooter. It’s one of the few must own mature titles on the system and would be a welcome addition to any game library.
Gamestyle (Oct 01, 2009)
A great technical achievement. The game looks and sounds great as well as furthering a genre that seemed destined to be stuck in limbo. So in short, it’s a must have for everyone.

Klar: Im Kern ist der Kampf ums Überleben nur ein weiterer Lightgun-Shooter. Aber einer, dem der Nervenkitzel aus allen Poren trieft. Und einer, der mit zielsicherem Wechsel zwischen Erzählung, Spannungsaufbau, frenetischer Action sowie Bosskämpfen begeistern kann. Wenn die Remote samt Gestenerkennung häufiger so sinnvoll und bedacht eingesetzt würde wie hier, höre ich auf, Wii als "Fuchtelkonsole" zu bezeichnen. Mit einem ausgefeilteren Waffenbalancing sowie besseren Effekten, z.B. bei den Explosionen, wäre noch mehr möglich gewesen. Doch auch so ist Extraction ein Erlebnis, das sich kein Lightgun-Shooterfan entgehen lassen sollte.

EA took a shot at bringing this game to the Wii and I can't recommend this game enough. It's an engaging story that sets things up for the original with great narration, excellent graphics and enough of a spook-factor to keep you on your toes. With Halloween upon us, it's a perfect time to give Dead Space Extraction a go, assuming you haven't already.
IGN (Sep 24, 2009)
Extraction isn’t like its 360 brother, but it is a true Dead Space experience, and the game is not only packed with content, but also very polished. If it were up to me I’d change a few of cheesy lines, add some much-needed scares, and rethink some of the bland bosses, but if the question is “Can a light gun game truly feel like a real Dead Space experience” the answer is a resounding “Yes.” If EA doesn’t push the series in a more traditional direction on Wii, hopefully we’ll get a sequel to Extraction that takes the groundwork established here and pushes it even further. If you love Dead Space or fancy a good light gun game now and then you owe it to yourself to pick up Extraction. As far as this reviewer is concerned Dead Space rules the point-and-shoot roost on Wii. I’ve played the hell out of EA’s competition, and Dead Space sits at the top of the pile.

Wir können allen, die hinter Dead Space Extraction eine lieblos programmierte Wii-Umsetzung vermuten, Entwarnung geben. Denn davon ist das Spiel meilenweit entfernt. Es ist vielmehr der erste Rail-Shooter überhaupt, der uns beim Spielen vergessen ließ, das wir gerade just ein solches "Ballern auf Schienen" erleben. Das gelingt Dead Space Extraction vor allem dank seiner hervorragenden Inszenierung, die nicht eine Sekunde lang Langeweile aufkommen lässt. Auch die sehr ansehnliche Grafik, die gute Soundkulisse und die große Abwechslung befördern es locker in die Wertungsregion "Sehr gut". Nur das Ende ist enttäuschend, und die Spielzeit recht kurz. In seinem Genre ist Dead Space Extraction dennoch ein Ausnahmespiel, und Dead-Space-Fans sowie volljährige Wii-Besitzer mit einem Faible für Horror sollten es sich nicht entgehen lassen.
Sure, its very nature dictates it's a dumbed down take on a sophisticated shooter but it's a classy, atmospheric and very exciting action title nonetheless, pipping Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and House Of The Dead to the Wii's best blaster crown. However, despite their admirable effort to produce an on-rails game with real depth, we've still got to haul EA up for their lack of ambition. The Wii can clearly handle a full third person adventure so why take the shortcut? Give us a proper Dead Space game and we'll give you a gold award.
1UP (Sep 25, 2009)
Extraction doesn't last very long; most gamers will be able to beat the single-player campaign in under six hours. But as an expansion of the Dead Space universe, it provides necessary sustenance for Dead Space fans, and a fun introduction for newcomers. The game avoids treating the Wii as a gimmick, incorporating a minimum amount of waggle -- except for when you need to brush off an enemy or activate your Glow Worm (for some reason, in this future nobody has a flashlight, but there are plenty of glow sticks). It may be a strange world, but I look forward to visiting it again, regardless of what platform it's on.

Luckily for a game with such unapologetic cinematic pretensions, Dead Space: Extraction does a fine job of weaving an engaging sci-fi narrative into a slick action game. Far from being a stripped-down side-show to the main event, Extraction provides yet another reminder of how brainlessly entertaining the on-rails shooter can be when it's done properly. With brilliant core combat and an array of heart-pounding set pieces, this provides ample proof that the Wii can service the hardcore when it wants.

Insgesamt betrachtet ist „Dead Space: Extraction“ ein hervorragender Titel für Vielspieler geworden. Obwohl es ein Shooter wie auf Schienen ist, bietet es trotzdem viel Abwechslung. Es beinhaltet eine tolle Geschichte, superbe Grafiken, exzellentes Sounddesign und eine Vielzahl von alten und neuen Monstern, die vor allem in den gigantischen Bosskämpfen hervorstechen. „Dead Space“-Fans müssen sich dieses Spiel allein der Geschichte wegen zulegen. Es werden garantiert viele Fragen beantwortet, doch gleichzeitig auch viele neue Fragen in die Runde geworfen. Wir können euch den Titel deshalb trotz der Kritikpunkte nur wärmstens empfehlen.

Fans of the Dead Space series will really enjoy this game, while it is still accessible enough for new players. There is a fairly nice variety in the gameplay, and the story is quite compelling, once you get past the first few levels.
80 (Oct 09, 2009)
Tight controls and an overall engrossing story told through equally as compelling direction and action make Dead Space: Extraction a benchmark for Wii shooters. Though it's short in length and doesn't make you want to leave the lights on, the game succeeds in bringing dark-themed shooter gameplay to a console that's overwhelmed by shovelware and mini-games. Extra content in the way of six voice-acted comics doesn't add much, and it would have been nice to see an archive of uncovered text and audio logs to mull over, but this is a shooter worth having in your Wii library.
Pelaajalehti (Nov, 2009)
Dead Space Extraction on kauttaaltaan laadukas peli ja edustaa Wiillä sen tosipelaajien pelien parhaimmistoa. Se myös näyttää, kuinka yksinkertaisen raideräiskinnän päälle voi rakentaa toimivan kauhupelin, vaikka pelihahmon liikkumista ei voikaan ohjata. Se jopa toimii lopulta tunnelman rakentajana, kun pelaaja aavistaa, että kohta eteen hyppää hirviölauma, voimatta hidastaa tai estää pelihahmoa liikkumasta vääjäämättömästi kohti kauhuja.

Dead Space: Extraction had me a little worried. I wanted to believe the experience would translate well to an on-rails shooter, but wasn't all that confident. I was concerned that the spectacular visuals, undoubtedly a key feature of the next-gen game, would suffer terribly on the Wii, and that we'd get another half-arsed game that clung onto motion controls as if that alone were all that's needed. I needn't have been so pessimistic, though, as Extraction stands shoulder to shoulder with SEGA's Overkill as a great example of the modern on-rails shooter, showing just what the Wii's capable of when developers put their minds to it.
GamesRadar (Sep 25, 2009)
The action may always be on a pre-set path, but like any good rollercoaster, Dead Space Extraction gets your heart racing and adrenaline pounding even though you have no control. A far more interesting and emotional take on the light gun scene.
80 (Sep 29, 2009)
Si l'idée d'adapter l'univers de Dead Space à un jeu exclusif à la Wii pouvait paraître saugrenue à certains amateurs de survival-horror, il faut bien reconnaître que le résultat est tout simplement bluffant. En faisant le choix du rail-shooting, les équipes de Visceral Games ont certes sacrifié la liberté du joueur, mais elles l'entraînent pour le coup dans une aventure prenante et bien rythmée qu'il n'est pas près d'oublier.
GameSpot (Sep 30, 2009)
Though it suffers from an occasional misstep, Dead Space Extraction is a great on-rails experience that brings all of the action and dismemberment of its predecessor to the Nintendo Wii intact. Fans of Dead Space will appreciate the copious amount of backstory presented, but even if you're not a marker-head, this first-person portrayal of a descent into madness is enticing on its own. Between its intense combat, fantastic visuals, and deep story, Dead Space Extraction is one game you shouldn't miss.
Thunderbolt Games (Dec 29, 2010)
The game is fairly short at just ten levels, but attempting them on each of the four difficulty settings provides an adequate challenge and definite cause for replayabilty. Notable highlights occur in level nine where, without spoiling anything, you’re put through your paces in a variety of unpleasant situations which call for quick reflexes, good-timing and a tenacious resolve, especially on the boss creature. Indeed, the game’s bosses could easily hold their own with those encountered in Dead Space; gargantuan masses of tentacled, rotting cephalopod-horror that shrug off your arsenal and swallow you whole. There’s also a familiar challenge mode where you’re tasked with cutting down multiple waves of Necromorphs until they just plain run out of corpses to reanimate. Dead Space: Extraction is a quality Wii game that provides a well-paced narrative, plenty of motion-control-based challenges, a few scares and lots of bloody horror-carnage.
JeuxActu (Oct 12, 2009)
Alors que l'on pensait que Visceral Games et Electronic Arts allaient se briser les dents avec Dead Space : Extraction sur Wii, force est de constater qu'ils ont su manoeuvrer avec intelligence afin d'offrir un titre bien fichu, et qui n'écorche en rien l'éclat de la série ; bien au contraire. Muni d'une réalisation solide et d'une prise en main efficace, le jeu fait autant flipper que sur Xbox 360 et PS3, ce qui n'était pas forcément gagné. Mais là où Dead Space : Extraction se montre particulièrement malin, c'est qu'en choisissant la voie du rail shooter, il ne laisse aucun joueur sur le bord de la route et s'avère même être un excellent complément de Dead Space d'un point de vue scénaristique. Au final, seuls la frustration liée à l'impossibilité de contrôler librement son personnage - logique -, la durée de vie relativement courte et un contenu limité représentent les zones d'ombres d'un Dead Space : Extraction bien tripant.
Gamekult (Sep 25, 2009)
Amener Dead Space sur Wii n'était vraiment pas un pari gagné d'avance. Entre les contraintes techniques et les spécificités de la maniabilité de la console, Visceral Games avait fort à faire pour réussir son coup et l'on ne peut que saluer le résultat final. En faisant le choix du rail-shooting, Extraction s'assure déjà une réalisation qui impressionne et qui porte ainsi une ambiance sombre et sanglante on ne peut plus fidèle à la série. Transporté dans une aventure mouvementée et nerveuse, on se défoule autant que l'on flippe grâce à une mise en scène vraiment soignée et un gameplay parfaitement travaillé. Il faudra néanmoins réussir à surmonter la double frustration du manque de liberté et d'une durée de vie faiblarde pour goûter à cette virée sanglante. Quoi qu'il en soit, Dead Space Extraction se révèle prenant, brutal, vif et flippant. Une belle surprise en somme.
65 (Sep 30, 2009)
Dead Space Extraction malgré ses défauts, est globalement bien réussi. Le genre étant quasiment inexistant sur la console de Nintendo, on lui pardonnera bien vite ses quelques anicroches, trop heureux de découvrir enfin un jeu pour adulte sur Wii. L’environnement détaillé et le gameplay bien travaillé nous immergent totalement dans l’ambiance sombre et angoissante de la série. Le railshooter reste néanmoins très frustrant, un peu de liberté supplémentaire aurait été la bienvenue.
Giant Bomb (Sep 29, 2009)
Extraction presents a quandary. It's a pretty short game, at only five or six hours, and after what looks like a great setup for a big exciting finale, the game just sort of... ends, abruptly and poorly. Since there's a limited amount of interactivity and it's more or less the same each time through, you may not want to play it more than once. But if you're a fan of Dead Space or this sort of, um, "guided experience," you should definitely play it, even if you grab it as a rental or wait for it to hit the bargain bin. I was tempted to write off Dead Space Extraction purely on the superficial reputation of light-gun games, but I'm glad I didn't. All other things being equal, it's really not bad.
Gamereactor (Sweden) (Sep 28, 2009)
Men till trots. När jag väl kommer in i hetluften, så är Dead Space Extraction ett välgjort och snyggt arkadspel som tillför en hel del nytt till genren. Det går utmärkt att spela i co-op, alla vapen från Dead Space finns här, inklusive plasmaskäraren, sågklingan och eldkastaren, och för dig som älskar spelets universum finns det mycket att suga in. Dessutom tillkommer ett challenge-läge som skänker lite extra livslängd efter det ganska korta storyläget (klarade spelet på en helkväll). Värt sitt fullpris? Nja, det beror hur hårt ditt sug att slajsa rymdkebab är, och hur pass mycket du gillar rälsskjutare i allmänhet. Annars kan du lika gärna vänta på Dead Space 2, eller eventuellt tills det landar i en reaback nära dig.
