Thoughts*SPOILER ALERT!*

I liked the DLC. Though it was short but to me, it was worth the 560 ms pts. The ending was REALLY sad but brave husband. May Gabe Weller rest in peace.

Just curious, I just finished it but I skipped the credits, was there any dialogue at end of the credits like the regular game?

Nope. Well now that Gabe Weller is dead, I am curious to see where the next DLC takes us, if there even is going to be more SP DLC. The death of Gabe makes me think the next DLC will have MP achievements.

I was thinking the same thing. But what other character would be featured on a DLC?

Was too short IMO, I'm disappointed with the length and the fact that the majority of it was just recycled maps.

I thought it was pretty short and somewhat a bad ending for anyone who did not play Dead Space: Extraction. I felt somewhat disconnected when Gabe died but still intrigued by some of the details of the story.

Why would they want their baby? What did the guy do when he was choking the guy with some form of stasis/TK?

couldnt agree more. The whole thing just felt cheap to me, the dev's didnt have to create any new maps at all. Just a way to milk our money.

Yeah, creating a new DLC with new characters and side-story for less money than they could have charged for it was milking our money. Give me a break. They even said in interviews the Maps were 50/50 new/old.

DLC was quality, although a bit on the short side. The ending was fantastic.
If they release more Single Player DLC, they will be definite purchases.

Agreed, I didn't even mind exploring the old areas again. I thought it had a great story with an amazing ending, the gameplay was fun as you'd expect from any Dead Space game, and I loved fighting the Twitchers again from the first Dead Space.

I thought Gabe was a really cool character, makes me want to play Extraction for sure. Anyways here's to another single player DLC where you play as Ellie.

I think I actually liked going through the hospital of the Sprawl again more than I would have enjoyed new maps. I saw things (such as the dead Tripod) that let you know Isaac had already made his way through.

Yeah I enjoyed those things too. The little details and references to Issac's plight increased my enjoyment.

It was fine but extremely too short. I beat it on normal in about an hour and a half. Even short other DLC that I felt ripped me off (Project Anchorage, for example) was longer and had more original content then this.
On the other hand I love me some more Dead Space 2, and I'm glad the twitchers are back. I just wish they'd have added more original rooms and content. One of the best parts about Dead Space (1+2) is exploration and finding new, creepy places. Going back through the same rooms sort of muted the experience.
All this aside, it was only $7, so I guess it wasn't too awful. Truth be told it probably would have been more fairly priced at $5, but now I'm arguing a point for $2 (basically two things off a dollar menu at Wendys) which seems a bit silly.
(I'm just jaded because it was either this or the NiN pack on Rock Band 3, and I chose this and I kind of wish I had those NiN songs now. :P)

they said 50/50 content but im not really convinced it is 50% id maybe go with 30% new content 70% old. only bits i remember as new is the start and the end. maybe even 20 80.

Way too short and I hated the recycled areas, but that's partly due to running that particular area a few times in hardcore to get to the disc swap checkpoint...

That said, I enjoyed the story, with a genuinely sad ending, kinda wished I played extraction first, but either way, this has made me downloading it.

Think there's going to be another sp Dlc because when you selec your game there's room to fit another option in, if you get what I mean. ATM there's 2 "bars" 1 being Dead Space 2s story "bar" 2 being the Dlc and there space left for another

How much is it for Extraction?

I agree with the guys on the little details they added when going back to those old maps with Gabe.

Who else enjoyed the little exploding additions to the Brute fight? I was fighting the Brute and all of a sudden Gabe went flying through the air and my health was extremely low. I was like, WTF that Brute didn't touch me. Only to turn around to see a 2nd Crawler coming at me.

I also thought the DLC was good, super easy 250, a bit too short though. Can't argue with the price though.

I was actually really grateful for them. Shoot of the arms, lob them like grenades towards the Brute. Three babies and he'll be practically dead. Made it a lot easier.

definitely enjoyed it - was too short, but good for its cost - would love if they just kept adding chapters every so often just keep adding chapters - love playing this game!

The best part was when I realized that the guy Issac came across (the patient that appeared dead when Issac stole the medical machine's TK module) wasn't really dead.

"He's okay!" I thought. Then I moved around the glass. Erp.

I enjoyed coming across the body of the doctor who sliced his neck. It was a new corpse model; leg showing a large amount of flesh missing just showing bare bone.

That place as well as the area where Issac killed his first tripod - everything, everywhere was obliterated.

While the ending was somewhat sad; I was amused about the helmet being shattered and seeing the guy's ear and knowing that I will be making a last stand. The song playing in the background during this sequence was very... very fitting.

When Gabe got his leg blown off.....honestly I was astonished....

at first I thought I lost the button press thing.....pretty sad for lexine

I like the intertwining of all the dead space spinoff games....like how extraction intertwined with dead space 1 and how dead space ios and ignition are right before Dead space 2...and now how this dlc caused some things in DS2


was pretty short though, at least they didnt charge 800 like I thought they might have

I'm with Jumnious here, haven't not played Extraction I felt like I was missing some of the references made to the pregnancy and who the hell the guys in white coats were. Anyone care to fill us in?

um in extraction lexine mcneil and eckard all were on aegis 7 when the planet was cracker found the marker and then the place went nuts. they managed to escape off the world in a shuttle of the ishimura which was gabes as he was checking something/collecting.

when they get back on the ship they find that it too is being attacked and they have to get off the ship. the transport they sued to get in was wrecked on the landing. later on then find out lexine has a immunity to the markers singals making her immune to the madness /dementia due to some brainwaves or something. eckard finds out and trys to inform the church about her and they would try and capture her.

Gabe find out and eckard shoots him, he dies later to a necromorph. later on they managed to escape and head for the sprawl.

thats the quickest story filler i can think of, full story on here http://deadspace.wikia.com

if gabe didn't pick up that 1 guy with the grenade to throw the last punch and moved away instead he could've survived since the guys body would've been in a way instead of 2 feet away from him
its kinda sad when u think about it
