New Dead Space 2 death scene is suitably brutal and messy

One of the things I loved about the first Dead Space was the number of creative ways that plucky but unlucky spaceman Isaac Clarke could be made dead. He was disembowelled, dismembered, decapitated and had his human rights pretty much torn limb from limb at every given opportunity. And it was perversely delightful to watch.

Dead Space 2 will give us a whole bunch of new, gory death scenes to enjoy. And, from what's been shown so far, they look to be suitably gruesome. Just take a look at this new trailer. It shows Isaac going up against a spindly-legged, bloated-bellied Necromorph and it doesn't end well:

An arm stabbed off and a head pummelled like whack-a-mole. But, compared to the killer blow we saw back at E3, that's pretty tame. Refresh your memory of what death at the hands of the appropriately named 'Puker' looks like:

It’s Mortal Kombat fatalities in space. I know I'm going to spend a lot of time in Dead Space 2 proactively getting Isaac liquidised.

    I'm sort of glad Isaac speaks now.

    @ TonyBlue05 - AH, that makes sense. I've only played New Game+ once, and now that I think about it that was when I got the "glitch."

    I've made it a policy not to watch any more videos of Dead Space 2 now. I want to salvage as much surprise whenever I get it.

    Been playing through the first one this summer and i'm loving it! cant wait for Dead Space 2!

    The puker death reminds me of RE4 when Leon's face falls victim to that giant bug's stomach juices.

    In the second video thre is a secret code. I translated the code: reborn as one 614

    I just beat the first game a week or two ago and I legitimately didn't like it. This looks like more of the same and it also looks just as not-fun.

    man i cannot wait for dead space 2! love the death scenes in the first one looking forward to more of the same. plus the crap your pants moments as well.

    @IsaacFenix That was only available for New Game+ plays. The camera only swivels to his shoulder on your first playthrough.
  • Defguru7777 - August 20, 2010 6:37 p.m.

    @ShaneCedt I thought the exact same thing when I played through the first Dead Space.

    Schweet! High-technical!
  • IsaacFenix - August 20, 2010 5 p.m.

    @04whim - Isaac's always had a face, you just never saw it until the end. There is a glitch, or some-such thing, that if you swing the camera around during the beginning of the game, when he has his helmet off while sitting in the USG Kellion on way to the Ishimura, you can see his actual face.
  • GoateeGuy615 - August 20, 2010 4:54 p.m.

    Isaac has always had a face. How come people never realize this?
  • 04whim - August 20, 2010 4:21 p.m.

    I take away from this trailer, that Isaac has a face...
  • ShaneCedt - August 20, 2010 1:34 p.m.

    Game Developers: You see, Issac has a face now. And he speaks. Oooh. Playing the first one for the 1st time right now. That hussy chick keeps bemoaning how much things suck...even though all she's doing is sitting behind a computer while I'm dealing with a buttload of aliens.
  • Felixthecat - August 20, 2010 12:41 p.m.

    I might actually consider buying Dead Space 2 now. I'm such a pussy that I wasn't going to, but now... it seems to look more funny than scary. Isaac screaming "AHHHH ARGGHHHHH AHHHH UHHHHH" was hilarious.
  • IsaacFenix - August 20, 2010 12:26 p.m.

    Ah, gotta love those highly disturbing death sequences. Good times...for us.
