** [[spoiler: Tiedemann. When he finally confronts Isaac, half of his body, including his head, has been burned past the musculature. Think Two-Face in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' and you got it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RewatchBonus: At the beginning of the game, Daina tells Isaac that the Unitologist church of the station is a safe place since, thanks to the separation of church and state, the government can't block her radio messages there. When Tiedemann starts interfering with her signal anyway, she spends the last seconds she has before getting blocked sounding offended and yelling out that the government can't do that instead of continuing to tell Isaac crucial information. [[spoiler:Appropriate, since she's an Unitologist herself]].

* TruthInTelevision: An audio log explains that more intelligent people are less affected by the Marker's dementia and instead can make out "instructions" from it. The affects of real-world dementia like Alzheimer's are lessened for people who perform mental exercises, such as puzzles, regularly. Isaac is an engineer frequently problem-solving and fixing VERY complex machinery, which may account for his resistance to the Marker's dementia and his ability to [[spoiler: defeat the Marker in a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind that leaves it effectively "brain dead".]]

* VideogameCrueltyPotential: The Javelin Gun impales Necromorphs upon walls for its primary attack. Its secondary attack electrocutes the target, then '''explodes''' inside it. The Rivet Gun fires explosive bolts into the enemy, and its secondary fires rivets that ricochet wildly, damaging all nearby Necromorphs.

* AllThereInTheManual: All though he is key to the plot, Nolan Stross' background is very lacking in the game. It's only by going through the expanded universe (namely watching Dead Space: Aftermath) that you find out details about his life, like who he's chasing and talking about during his hallucinations.

** An excellent subversion in [[spoiler: the ending. As Issac slumps into his chair, clearly exhausted, he immediately tenses up and realises that this is an exact mirror of the ending of the first game. Issac turns his head to the right, with an absolutely terrified expression on his face- only for Ellie to turn to him, completely normal and say "What?"]]

* {{Badass}}: Isaac is much less mentally stable in this game (and that's saying something), but seems utterly determined to ''not die'' no matter ''what'' happens to him. When his personal nightmare (Necromorphs) show up immediately after he wakes up from cryosleep, the very first thing he does is to HEADBUTT it and then start running. In fact, he seems much more "together" while killing Necromorphs than he does while confronting his hallucinations.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Oddly enough, the fact that Isaac isn't nearly as sluggish and slow as he was in the first game (and that the mouse movement is much more precise) will throw off players who now have much more fluid controls to work with.

On Consoles, the controls have changed from reload and activating things both being the same button to separating the two and they've made way for a new quick stasis pack button.

*** You can't even shoot the [[spoiler:security forces]] before the scripted event where the lights come on and they start shooting at you. If you aim where they are and try to fire, Isaac will lower his weapon.
