I hated the Dead Space demo on the 360. Mainly because I found the controls impossible and the game far too hard. However, on the recommendation of virtually everyone in existence following me playing Ghost Squad and House of the Dead: Swearathon, I decided to pick up the Wii prequel.
And I’m glad I did, because it’s more than a bit ace.
I’ve only done the first two levels so far, but each was a good 45 minutes or so long. It’s a pretty (but PRETTY) standard on-rails shooter, but the story is great – gripping and plot-twisty already.
And did I mention it was pretty? The graphics are outstanding.
