Summary: Objectives can be unclear. The map can be more of a burden, than an asset. The story makes little sense to me (though never dull). The combat system is a chore to execute (comes with the genre i suppose). And trial and error seems to surface rather frequently, removing tension and fear, and replacing those feelings with frustration and annoyance. Based on those issues, this game deserves a poor mark, right? Well, not exactly.
Summary: Survival horror is a genre of games that seemingly died out in recent years. When most modern gamers think of a horror game, they would probably envisage thoughts of Dead Space or maybe even Resident Evil 5. Actual survival horror games of this generation, games that actually manage to scare, are very few and far between. Amnesia The Dark Descent was released on PC in 2010, which did truly manage to scare in a way that few other games ever had.

Summary: With most games in the genre making the shift towards action horror, Siren: Blood Curse instead retains what made survival horror so appealing in the first place. It would have been easy for them to appease the action/shooter fanbase, and cash in like so many others have. Thankfully, the often under appreciated Siren franchise does not sellout.
Summary: Unbelievable. 4 years old, the most immersion and scariness to experience on the system! Broken up into episodes, you feel like you are competing in a reality-horror TV series. What a blast, replay is great as well. It's a world you wanna re-visit, as long as you know how to escape first!
Summary: I really enjoyed the approach of this game; the chapter idea was very cool, esp. w/the previews of the upcoming chapter; gave it a 'serial' kind of feel; The graphics(while extremely dark at times)are pretty amazing; the detail in all the levels make you just want to stop and stare; it most def. has the feel of the Fatal Frame/Silent Hill look; for 720p, I was really impressed. It is fun just to go into 1st person mode and just look around.
Summary: You can generally find this title on eBAY for around $30 plus ship if you dont want to download it on the Playstation Network. Just a tip so you dont buy the crazy overpriced ones here whether its from the UK or not
Summary: When you think about it ther's not actually that many great, true Survival-horror games available on PS3. This, with it's creepy, tense atmosphere and well balanced stealth/action gameplay is certainly one of the better ones. I have to mention the sight jacking, where you can see through the zombies (and other humans) eyes, as one of the best gameplay innovations i've seen for a while.
Summary: This game is the best true horror game I've played. It recognises the fact that if put in that sort of situation, your first instinct would be survival. Not the lets get a gun and blow everything away type of survival, but the kind where most of the time you run like Hell, or you're forced to hide for your life. You are encouraged to sneak past the Shibito rather than take them out.
