New boxart of Dead Space Extraction has been released, but does it convey the same feeling as the original?
They need to change this to a more appropriate cover for this kind of game.
Agreed, we need another severed limb (a Necromorph foot maybe??) or something.
I dont really know if i would go that far but i feel they need to make it more realistic than the vibrant color used on the cover.
seems out of place if you ask me after seeing the kind of game dead space is this cover just looks odd
"cover just looks odd" Exactly...almost like The Conduit's, but The Conduit isn't trying to be scary either.
and I actually kinda like it...
Its like if Uwe Boll was 2 make Dead Space the movie THIS is probably wot the Dvd cover would look like - Not good
The best part of Dead SPace was the idea that 99.9% of the time you were alone and surrounded by some nasty creatures fighting for your life. In this pic, they show two people doing just that and it makes me think the game will be less personal and less scary. If that is what the game is to be then fine but if so, then I can't see it living up to the Dead Space I love.
too much On rail horror games on wii. they should make normal horror games. On rail isnt scary. You guys remember house of the dead with the Gun back on Dreamcast? it was fun but not scary
Looks like they've gone for some sort of Star Wars/Event Horizon kind of mish mash with that cover art Big fan of the original and I'm not feeling the new look at all...
like all wii covers, looks like a kid's game
.__. please just don't talk anymore
i won't be as blunt but i c his point. Even though this is still going to be a mature game the cover isn't as mature as the original game. I could understand if they were aiming at a younger age group, like with ghostbusters on wii compared to ps3/360, different look to the game and different look to the cover. but like is say, it seems to be targetting the same age group that the first did. maybe just being on wii they opted for a kinda 'less serious' cover. not sure less serious is the right words to use but it's hard to explain
It's just boxart. I mean, handpainted art doesn't work so much for horror, and it doesn't look very scary, true. But it's just a cover, and it shouldn't reflect on the final product.
But the cover of a game serves as a sort of "first impression" that a casual passer by gets, and by casual I mean someone who doesn't visit video game sites often. The target audience of this game are mainly teenagers and older, not anyone younger. Which is why this cover doesn't really work, it's not conveying the dark theme that's present in the game, instead it looks a bit too vibrant for that. But that's just my opinion.
Vibrant colours are much more catchier for the eye. Brown isn't really requesting your attention now is it?
Which reminded me of old school Mega Man box art and that's not something I'd try to imitate in the first place.
Well looks fine to me. Now is the game fun?
At first when I heard it was going to be a rail shooter I thought meh but after I went back and played part of the original I think this might just workout pretty well on the Wii.
Nintendo doesn't like the software on their console to be advertised too heavily as mature. Especially with regards to dismembered body parts and life-like gore.
Yeah, you got a point there, vibrant colours are easier to see then dark muddy colours of course. It all depends on what you're looking for though, isn't it? Look at Dead Space's cover, all mostly very dark and muddy colours. Showing a dark, mature theme, and the severed hand helps also :p Edit: @sidar
That new box art looks very generic and over used.
Please try again guys. There's still some time before release. Right now it ranks up there with that old school NES Mega Man box art. *shudder*
what are you talking about? if they dont want games afvetised as mature they wouldnt have pushed madoworld so much or had this game at E3
is that monster touching her boobs?
But at least she's not holding a Wiimote...:), and Nicole should be somehow in the cover for continuation/prequel's sake. This is worst than Battletoads and Space Pirates... [for the young-lings, those were games for the Genesis and "Panasonic 3DO, best and most under-rated console ever".]
