"The genre of survival horror was one that got rather flooded in the days of the Playstation 2, but in this current generation of consoles there has been very little. Out of the few that have appeared there has been even less that have actually been worthwhile.
It seems that in this generation a lot of the survival horror developers have turned their backs on the roots of horror and opted to turn to action elements instead. Remember back in the days of the original Silent Hill when the combat controls were so clunky and slow that you would often run rather than fight? Nowadays every other protagonist seems to be rather adept at wielding some sort of weapon.
On that note however, there is one particular series that has stood out and stuck true to it’s roots. That series is Dead Space." - Declan McGeachey of Geekenstein.com
