Some thought it would be a direct sequel. Some scratched their heads, wondering why EA would bring a Dead Space game to the Wii. When it was announced that Dead Space: Extraction was going to be a rail shooter, some expressed disappointment. However, anyone that has played House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, House of the Dead Overkill, or Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles can attest that the Wii is the best way to play gun games in the home short of owning your own arcade cabinet. Knowing this made me more interested in Dead Space: Extraction."
