How scary is Dead Space on iDevices?

I am just wondering before I bought it. Is it as scary as it is in consoles?

I played it plugged into my stereo system in the dark. It gave me a few good scares as the music builds up, but its not as scary as its console cousins.

Console Versions:
The second one, I believe is less scary than the first.

Not really scary, just go watch the trailer or gameplay video that will give you an idea.

Not the same as playing it at all. I don't have a huge tolerance for scary stuff so I got pretty freaked out in some parts when playing at night, overall it was pretty good.
