Leader sinse 2008.

I disagree.

''A New Leader in Survival Horror’''

Anyone who has played Amnesia The Dark Descent disagree with this. Amensia is a lot more scarier than Dead Space 2.

Led-Zeppelin2878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

You call that a game? Agreed though it is scarier.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

Indeed, here is an example:

Is a lot more scarier because there is no weapons and it have First Person view, is more immersive.

Amnesia looks scary as hell. Honestly I don't even want to touch it.

Zambies and monsters don't give me the creeps.

It's only when I can shoot them is when I'm scared sh*tless.

But at least Dead Space 2 is above and beyond the 100% Action Shooter called... Resident Evil...

Yes it is a game Led! :P

I am not scared of Dead Space 2..I AM TERRIFIED of Amnesia..I honestly cannot play more than 30 mins of the game, I've completed DS2. Not saying which is the leader, just saying imo which is actually 'scary'.

Capcom should let Visceral Games make Resident Evil games from now on.

Bonerboy2878d ago

Playing this right now and it is visually stunning and full of action. fun fun

Playing as well, on PC. It definitely doesn't have as many cheap scares as the first and I've seen 2 action sequences that definitely hang with the best, plus space RULES

again these two words made me laugh :) more "action horror"
