To me, it's not about scariness, but a departure in form

The only "threat" DS has is to make you feel overwhelmed by throwing a bunch of enemies at you ala RE4 & RE5 or an invincible enemy that chases you.

As I said, I love the Dead Space games. They are fine action games. DS1 and to a lesser extent 2 start out with a creepy atmosphere that remains for awhile. However, the game quickly runs out of tricks in terms of the scare department. You really start to suspect a necromorph to jump out of another vent or corner. and then it becomes just another action game although a bit "darker" of course.. But yeah, atleast it's closer to RE than RE5...I'll give you that.

Both were done by classic Resident Evil. Zombie mobs, Mr. X and Nemesis.

Like RE. You quickly become accustomed to jump scares and can even predict them. What makes RE and DS frightening is the atmosphere they share.

Bioshock and Metroid Prime are closer to RE than RE5.
