Dead Space: Where's The Scare?

Aimforthehead.co.uk writes: "Where's the scare? Well, I'm not quite sure. Dead Space isn't quite horror, and it isn't quite survival, either. In an obvious attempt to revive the genre, it hits a bizarre middle ground; too many clichés and too much ammo make it difficult to be truly terrified. Yet with that said, EA's third-person shooter has its occasional scares, it's occasional "oh shit!" and its occasional "what the fuck!?" -- it's just too bad that you'll probably find these in your usual daily soap opera, too."

But it's definitely not in the horror genre at all. RE5 has turned the iconic RE-scare-you-to-your-bones franchise into an action one.

I have to disagree with the author. Dead Space was great, it was suspenseful to me, and a very polished and well thought out game.

Dead Space is much more up my street than Resi. I'm into space stuff. I aint a Treky tho.

re5's great but it wasn't scary let alone that it was just guns blazing left to right, even re1-4 wasn't that scary. i think dead space hit the mark and it's really a under appriciated game.

Dead Space = More survival horror than RE5, RE5 was not scary in the least.

REmake on gamecube, 'nuff said.

Yeah re5's really good. Not scary though.

Dead Space is fun, but not scary.

I just finished Dead Space. Although it wasn't super scary, it did have its moments. Its one of the better games in its genre to come out in a while. I liked it a lot. The best think about the game though is its controls. They were really good. I gave the game a 9 out of 10.
