This one is a huge YMMV. Personally, I put a ton of hours into that game and got the platinum trophy. I ended up really enjoying it for the atmosphere and extreme challenge, but it's not for everyone. The way Tron describes it very much encapsulates how you feel at first--helpless and ineffectual. But that's exactly the brand of horror that Mikami is going for. After the opening couple of chapters, the game opens up a lot more and lets you get hella creative with weapon/item combinations in different encounters. All told, it's probably my favorite survival horror game since REmake.
