Power Armor Countdown #24!

Today's entry in the power armor countdown is a favorite from a new video game. This one got several recommendations, so despite not meeting the letter of every criteria I laid down, it was hard to not include it.
Isaac's Advanced Suit. Yeah, so even though this is not stricly a Power Armor in the most technical sense, it does make Isaac Clark even more of a bad mama jama than he is without it. In some ways, it does augment him, for instance his health and the amount of damage he can take is based on which armor he is using. Additionally, his inventory increases with the better armor, which implies that the suits do enhance his strength, or at least load bearing potential.

Plus, I just finished Dead Space 2, so it feels right. Lower placement in the countdown due to not really meeting all of the criteria. Higher placement due to Isaac being able to stomp necromorphs into little pieces.

Cool-looking suit, though this sort of thing in game design always bugs me - the bigger better syndrome.
