1 out of 10.
 
Shooting the living scheiße out of a Nazi piglet in low gravity is nothing scary, lad.

Not at all, part of any game being scary is not having enough supplies or not knowing were you are going or being lost, this game has neither. 
You always have loads of MP40 ammo and there is a constant compass at the top of the screen.

Great choice. This game is most certainly a rental.
 
Want to accidentally excrete feces? Play the Silent Hill games, RE 2/3, and the Penumbra series. You probably played Silent Hill and RE, considering your Persona4 avatar, proving that you have a PS2.

Well if you want my opinion, your question isnt gonna get you anywhere cuz the definition of "scary"  differs from one another..  
There are the people who dont have blood in their vains and nothing scares them, those who get emotional and might find unscary things very scary (like me) or the ones who act like theyre badass and "psh thats not scary son" and act like they never feel scared like human beings,  which i consider complete tools..

It isn't bad. It's a nice little FPS with some paranormal twists. Not freaky paranormal like F.E.A.R., but cool-as-hell paranormal. There's one part when the environment goes in low gravity and everything starts floating, especially you. These events happen dynamically, so it's pretty interesting.

Wolfenstein is not a horror game if that's what you're wondering. The only thing even remotely scary about the game is the hospital level but even that one is pretty tame. Great game, though.

Not really. The only thing so far that got me was the Nazi zombie and the only reason was because he was going to destroy me (Which he did several times) and made my heart race.

I haven't played it but I'm gonna have to guess that it's not scary at all.

I was going to say the same thing. Judging by the reputation of the series, the games are usually campy violent in a way that is more funny than frightening. I am guessing this one is similar.

Terreo Nullem. 
 
Nope, there's no significant scare effect in this game.

The only time I felt an emotion close to fear was during the hospital level, because it slipped my mind to use the Veil to see the damn Kroenen-guy. I haven't played through the whole game, yet, though, but so far the game isn't feeling scary at all.....I don't think it's trying to be.

@Gav47: I don't find being low on ammo scary. I find it fucking annoying.
