People told me that Soma isn't that scary compared to outlast or Amneisa. I guess fear is subjective because I found this to be far more terrifying. What Makes Soma so scary for me isn't the environment, water, darkness or atmosphere. ( All those things are top notch though) it's the monsters themselves. The monsters in Amnesia had bite to them but their bark was worse. This is not the case for Soma. Monsters in this game have a real sense of threat. It not just how they look but how they behave. Right now, I'm up to the part where I'm on this sunken ship trying to sneak past this thing with a glowing disco ball head that teleports. Oh also looking at him not only causes yor vision to distorted but also makes him tele-chase. This thing is fucking terrifying. Even with the sound off and the lights on this guy is a walking nightmare. He makes pyramid head look like a teletubby. Amnesia never had this affect on me.
