Dead Space 2 released just a few weeks ago on the PS3, and if you're a PS3 owner and you picked up the Dead Space 2 Collector's Edition, you're probably aware you also now own Dead Space Extraction.
If you're a PS3 owner and you didn't purchase the Dead Space 2 Collector's Edition, but you are interested in Dead Space Extraction, the good news is you can download the game from the PlayStation Store for just $14.99.
Now, you may be wondering, "Is Dead Space Extraction really worth it?" or, "How many hours can I expect from it?"
Well, being that Dead Space Extraction was originally released on the Nintendo Wii back in September of 2009, we can use the data reported through the Nintendo Channel to get a good idea of how many hours of game-play you can expect.
How many hours have Wii owners spent blasting Necromorphs in Dead Space Extraction with 525 days of game-play reported, and how many hours can you expect if you're just picking it up? Let's take a look!

I actually rented Dead Space Extraction for the Wii, but only played it once, and not for very long. Here's my Dead Space Extraction reported game-play data for the Wii version:
As you can see, my reported time is a lot lower than the overall average.
When Dead Space Extraction was released on the Wii, it released with a MSRP of $49.99. While Wii owners probably got the short end of the Necromorph deal with the original $50 price tag on the game, you can now find the Wii retail version for under $30.
I didn't really give Dead Space Extraction a chance, but both the Wii and PS3(so far) versions have been received pretty well by the gaming press, with the PS3 version of Dead Space Extraction having a "professional" review score average of 84.33%, based on 3 reviews on GameRankings.com.
I think it's safe to say you can expect to get at least 7-10 hours of game-play from Dead Space Extraction on the PS3, especially with the challenge mode and the Trophies to obtain, based on the average reported by Wii owners.
If you're a PS3 owner with the Sony Move bundle and you're looking for a new game to play with it, based on the game-play hours reported and the review score averages for the game, I don't think you can go wrong with purchasing Dead Space Extraction for under $20.
If you have played, or have been playing, either version of Dead Space Extraction, is it a game you would recommend to other gamers? If you're a fan of the Dead Space story, do you feel Dead Space Extraction does a good job of staying within the universe set up in the original Dead Space, and perhaps even now in Dead Space 2?
