Umineko no naku koro ni - Boring?

I watched Higurashi no naku koro ni without being spoiled and the mystery and horror hit me like a bus.

Now I eagerly awaited Umineko and I think it's a total letdown compared to Higurashi. I mean on it's own it's kinda interesting and all. But it doesn't evoke the same creepy feeling that Higurashi did.

But to me these two seem to play in different leagues. The whole premise of having an evil witch seems boring compared to the games higurashi played with the viewpoint in the different arcs.

What do you think? Maybe I'm missing something?

Well, Umineko seems to be more of a mystery series than a horror series, so in a way, it could be considered a letdown for horror fans expecting it to be more similar to Higurashi instead of being more mystery oriented, though it does have some spooky moments.

Personally, I am enjoying it so far, waiting to see what happens next.

I guess I should ask this: Are you watching the anime of Umineko, or reading about the game(s)?
