Dead Space Extraction won't just be 'on-rails'

Don't call it an "on-rails" shooter. Steve Papoutsis, the Executive Producer on the Wii's Dead Space Extraction, says it is a "Guided First Person Experience" and adopting new gameplay mechanics to the traditional "on-rails" game.

"We are calling our game a Guided First Person Experience as we are aiming to create our own genre through innovating on classic gameplay concepts," Steve stated on the Dead Space Blog.

HEY ITS NOT AN ONRAIL! BUT IN THE END IT IS !
WE AT EA LIKE TO SPIN THIS FACT SO WE PRETEND TO MAKE IT SOUND MYSTERIOUS AND ALL!!

Sorry for that but EA needs to put a sock in it.
It's a f*cking onrail EA, don't you f*cking spin it.

YEah yeah i know it could be a fun game in the end, but the way they try to create this new genre is just pathetic.
GUIDED-FPS ? really now?
SAME DIFFERENCE
(oxymoron, yep)

Max,
No true i havn't played it, but The Wii can do much better than an Onrail thing, im just bothered that they try to make innovation with limited gameplay like these.

They said it'll last about the same amount of time playing this, most on rail shooters are way shorter than that.

I bet EA can push something great in there, but honestly.
Why do they try to spin this whole thing saying its a guided-FPS?
House of the DEAD and time crises are GUIDED-FPS games.
EA tries to sound special with this "new" genre.

Its an onrail, and i'm still bothered by it that they did not go for something bigger than that.

the game isn't even out yet. It's shaping up to be a good game, if you don't like it don't buy or if you want a different gameplay style for dead space go out and get a ps3 or a 360. Eurocom has a hand in developing Extraction and while they aren't the biggest known company their game sphinx and the cursed mummy was awesome on the gamecube.

This game would be 2x better if you can curbstomp babies like in the first Dead Space.

AllroundGamer3195d ago

yeah you will probably have to push sometimes button "A" (QTE style!) to jump from one rail to another :)

Not sure why they feel the need to not call an on the rail shooter an on the rail shooter. Personally I call it a light gun game but hey that's me ;)

Hope they still get things right with this "guided fps"

nerubii3195d ago (Edited 3195d ago )

still unsure what it means by guided fps though. probably it has the ability to stop its movement/rail? choose one's path? backtracking?

okay i get it now. if it was to be purely FPS, one may still require crosshair/reticule. if the game allows on-rail, one may choose to remove crosshair/reticule to have a better aiming/shooting experience.

so you choose where you want to go and let the game move for you while you aim. =]
