I have mixed feeling fro this series. I'm a big fan of survival horror and none of those game ever made me scared, if anything only the 2nd game gave me a single scare in one of those BOOOO moments (monster jumps out of the closet).
Both games have great settings, sound, enemies, actually a lot of stuff right, just some with each that takes big points for me.
The first starts good but it gets so repetitive, especially because there's a lot of backtracking but unlike other survival horrors where the scenario changes a bit, since you are in a spaceship in the middle of space, everything looks alike. There's also the horrible story that is too bad to make sense of it, at least it is not in your face all the time but still gets in the way.
The second game is much better, much more varied, the story is still bad but you can ignore it and still have fun. The repetitiveness is addressed so it gets much more enjoyable BUT they took the great boss battles the first had.
Overall it feels like it's one step forward and one back (or at least half a step back).
