The Suffering


It's been said that war is hell, but whoever made that observation probably hadn't ever been imprisoned. I'm talking about having someone thrown in a maximum security prison with a number of murderers, rapists and other fiends of society for a long...

Problems aside, however, The Suffering is one of those games that's a surprising twist to the horror genre. With extremely creative monsters, an unique setting and quite a bit of replayability, The Suffering provides a sense of where the survival...

The Suffering


A wicked and wild ride.

What really keeps The Suffering from scoring an A is the game is so darn linear. Sure you get different endings depending on some choices you make throughout the game, but the game for the majority of it is very straightforward. Pull a switch, solve a...

The Suffering


If movies like Jacob's Ladder and Hellraiser and games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil were used as a mirror held up to a generation's collective psyche, we'd feel moderately doomed. As cathartic escapisms, however, or regardless, they sure are a...

The Suffering


Ever since the original Resident Evil horrified gamers on the original Playstation, companies have tried, with little success to cash in on the survivor-horror genre. It seems like developers think that dark environments, limited resources and simple...

 The Suffering also uses a few visual effects to play tricks on your mind. At first you won’t see the monster that’s doing all of the killing, but slowly, as he continues to kill, he’s revealed to you. When you first see him, he’s dragging his...

The Suffering


In the DVD extras for The Suffering, a mini-documentary called “Prison is Hell” is included that will creep you out. And it sets the perfect pre-game tone for Midway's latest, and arguably most successful game to date.

The atmosphere is spot-on ; The creepy music fits the prison setting ; The graphics are atmospheric and sharp enough to make Silent Hill’s developers sweat ; The DVD extras are great, especially the “Prison is Hell” documentary on a haunted prison...

The action-game emphasis reduced the impact of the spookiness, in places, reducing the impact of each new shock ; Profanity and bloodshed, heavy on both, means parents better take this game’s M-Mature rating seriously

Full of profanity, bloodshed and creepy atmosphere, The Suffering will not leave gamer’s suffering, except from withdrawals after it’s over. If you like hardcore chill-fests, this one’s for you. Definitely not for young people, though.

The Suffering


If Resident Evil is the interactive equivalent of George Romero and Fatal Frame is Stephen King, then The Suffering is the videogame answer to Clive Barker?and it is definitely raising some hell.

Come explore the evil in Carnate island (pun intended) and the abattoir of Abbot State Penitentiary. It?s an experience you won?t be able to forget.

The Suffering


Take a spiraling journey down into the depths of hell with Torque -- a hardened criminal that stands accused of butchering his family. Oh, did we mention there's plenty of hell-spawn as well?

Culturally diverse main character; brooding atmosphere; incredible sound; good control; 5.1 surround

Culturally diverse main character is a murderous prisoner; extreme potty-mouthing and violence could offend; slowdown; short; no 480p

The Suffering review


The Suffering, the latest title from Midway and probably the best in recent memory, has arrived on the PS2 to horrific eagerness. The Suffering captures the disturbing and terrifying nature of a prison environment, while combining realistic lighting...

In all honesty, The Suffering was a joy. It was the best time that I’ve had with a game for quite a long time. Health, batteries, and ammo are over-abundant, but the adrenaline rush that you get from playing this is spectacular. The story is one...

The Suffering: Ties That Bind


This sequel to Surreal Software's well-received action-horror game, The Suffering, finds its protagonist Torque free from the morbid penitentiary that once held him, yet imprisoned still by the sadistic demons that haunt his waking hours. Like the origina

Not for the weak of heart


I bought this recently because I thought it was a first person shooter. Thankfully you can make it one, with the handy feature that you can switch between first and third person view (first person makes it easier to shoot enemies, third person makes it...
