I know quiet a few people who are frightened of this game. *cough* We all know one here *cough* I rarely find this game frightening, in fact I found it hilarious the first time I ever tried the demo. The only time I am frightened is from Panic adrenaline rush when a tank comes, or when I am looking around and accidentally bump into one of my buddies who's with me in the dark. And the adrenaline scare you get from the occasional bum rush through a level with your friends. Other than that, I think the game is very tongue in cheek lol. The game is like a B Movie Gore fest. I laugh whenever I come across two regular zombies punching and kicking the shit out of each other, or one runs up to me making the most ridiculous noise "GRAW PTHHHH WAWAWAW!" Maybe it's just because I've grown up with corny horror movies as a kid and it's the wannabe Bruce Cambell heart inside of me? Speaking of which, this game needs a Chainsaw unlock achievement.
