Yeah, I recall only two scary parts in Clear Sky.
The first was that underground structure you have to flood and the cave where you had to get some stone out of it. I was scared shitless after entering, I refused to move from that little hall. Then I saw the flames so I had to reload. Then I finally decided it was the sounds preventing me from going anywhere so I just took the headphones off. Once I took the headphones off, I didn't have any problem finishing it (holy **** there's a lot of Snorks in there).
The second was the cave but the cave isn't always scary. The first time I went in, I didn't find anything suspicious really. The game crashed or something so I had to go in a second time soon thereafter. The cave got really dark, I was hearing bad sounds, and stuff started moving around when I didn't expect it to (probably a poltergist). It scared the shit out of me and I ran out without looting the place.
In Shadow of Chernobyl, pretty much all the underground places had me in cold sweats. Especially the first time you encounter a Bloodsucker. :x
