VIDEO: Dead Space 2's intro is awesome - watch it!

As you’ve probably already heard, Dead Space 2 is pretty damned fantastic. However, I certinaly didn’t expect to piss my britches before I’d even started playing?! Obviously I anticipated a certain level grotesque brutality, yet the motion capture and overall believability in the characters you’ll see below significantly enhanced my perceived terror quotient. At least according to my hazy memories of the last game.



Semi-Spoilerish: This is the opening cinematic that occurs before you ever hit a button. It lightly establishes how Isaac heads back into the fray, but mostly it’s explaining what happened in the last game. So, assuming you know all that: Have at it!

    I love this opening. It's really creepy and disgusting, but I love it. Also, I feel really bad for Issac. I think he needs a hug. X3

    Best Introduction to a game I've seen is Mass Effect 2, now that is adrenaline pumping, seeing as I didn't watch any of the ME2 trailers and didn't know Sheperd was going to die, when he died it was so sad. Another great intro is GTA:Vice City, opening to Mr Mister-Broken Wings and Tom Sizemore's voice is epic

    Oh, shit!...

    the bright idea of "drink along a dead space" every time a necromorph of any kind pops up, down a shot of whatevers strongest, everytime you piss yourself with fear, down a bottle of whatevers available everytime you die down a bottle of jager"

    that wasn't scary, but it was very interesting i was pissed when the video went off.

    I would definitely recommend this game if you enjoyed the first.
  • Mexicutioner - January 27, 2011 1:38 a.m.

    I'm really enjoying the game. The intro freaked me the hell out, but it was good for motivation. The hell?! One of the words in the reCaptcha is backwards!

    I can already tell I'm not going to want to play this in the dark

    Having a party with a bunch of friends that involves us trying to beat the game in one sitting. Who ever chickens out or dies while playing passes the controller to the next. Looks promising.

    @farsided, Dead Space creeped me right the heck out. I still am on the fence on whether or not I get Dead Space 2.
  • LanceW - January 27, 2011 1:13 a.m.

    Wish I could watch this but apparently I "may not access this video". Still buying this game, even if I'll have nightmares for a year.

    Okay, who else laughed when Isaac's friend got killed? I thought it was hilarious.
  • asljirk - January 27, 2011 1:03 a.m.

    This is so horrifyingly beautiful I had to watch it twice....... I was about to go to bed.... maybe I'll stay up a little longer.
  • farsided - January 27, 2011 1:02 a.m.

    Part of me wants to play this really bad, but the other part still has nightmares from the first
  • JLThatshilarious - January 27, 2011 1:02 a.m.

    That wasn't too scary. I was watching the credits, what kind of mean bastard would name his son "Chuck Beaver"?
  • ShaneCedt - January 27, 2011 12:56 a.m.

    That's the start to my every day, really
