Did you know that Dead Space was originally being created for the original Xbox?
Neither did I. What’s more interesting is that they shifted the entire game over to next-gen, which means that they have been working on it for quite some time now.
If you take a look at this video, you can see that while the graphics of the original Xbox version obviously don’t compare to the 360 version, the game still looked pretty impressive. What this means, is that if the developers get it right, the Wii version of Dead Space may actually be quite decent.
I say this, because most of the time, good graphics are not that important, they are nice, but not important. In Dead Space, things are a little different, as the game does actually really on the visual atmosphere quite heavily in terms of creating and maintaining tension. This basically means that the Wii version will just downright suck if it looks really crappy.
If this video is anything to go buy, the Wii version may just surprise us.
