Technically nowhere near what iD managed but the original was the creepiest damn thing I've ever played. Best pacing of any game as well.

I'm about 40% of the way in, and it's technically the best of the 3. Story has turned him into a total whiny ***** though. It's a good 3rd person shooter, but they dumbed down a lot of stuff. All ammo is the universal, there's a ridiculously overpowered gun creation system that you can break easily, it removes a lot of the tension from the game - no more "I'm down to nothing but 5 rounds of ammo for this gun I suck with" moments. Also, there are times when you're clearly safe. I'll let you know how it goes but so far it's the weakest experience of the 3 as far as a horror game, and the best as far as a 3rd person action shooter.

I wanted the horror though.
