If you owned a Wii in 2009 and loved the Dead Space series, chances are you've played Dead Space Extraction. If not, it's a pretty decent rails shooter that not only provides a ton of Dead Space fan service, but also was one of the few M rated games that were (at least initially) Wii exclusives. Well, the Eurocom guys behind that game have reformed as EightPixelsSquare, and with the help of DeNA is releasing a behind the back "photorealistic arcade-style shooter game" called Lawless.

Check out the trailer:

The trailer looks cool, but this ex-Dead Space team is under the leadership of "industry veteran and free-to-play visionary Ben Cousins" who you may remember as the guy behind The Drowning [Free] which "played" more like a first person business model than an actual shooter. Fingers crossed that Lawless is substantially closer to Dead Space: Extraction than it is The Drowning.

    It's going to play exactly like the commando games by GLU. There's almost no reason to care about this game, right now.

      Man, I really liked Dead Space: Extraction, and I ~really~ want to give these guys the benefit of the doubt... But, yeah. :

    The Drowning was awful. It wound up being a display of vapid design and poor implementation of a FTP model. The "groundbreaking" control scheme was useless and the whole game felt like just an excuse to go after the players wallet.

      This isn't really a first-person shooter... It's more like 2.5D. It also seems to be an on rails shooter. It looks clunky.,

    If it played like Glu's craptastic games, no interest. But it may play more like a real arcade shooter, and those games are always fun. We'll see.

    New shooter, yeah! i dont seem to care about this one at all, same as brothers in arms 3 that looks like frontline commando! the only game i AM looking for is for sonic sega allstars racing transformed and modern combat 5. But looking at the whole gameplay, i thought it was really gonna be some kind of TPS game like lets see, freedom fighters? Max Payne? but instead what i see is just a no good swipe and shoot kind of game.
