The Suffering: Ties That Bind

Empire Online
13 June 2007
  • Summary: While on the surface most horror games draw heavily on Western movies and literature, the slow pace and aching suspense of Japanese classics such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill actually have more in common with The Ring or Dark Water than Romero’s zombie flicks. But with the arrival of The Suffering last November – developed in the US, with creative input from gore supremo Stan Winston – the genre was pushed in a deeply disturbing direction, replacing the ghostly...

  • Summary: "Ve høe The Suffering 2 se opìt ocitnete v kùži Torqueho, který byl obvinìn za vraždu své ženy a svých dìtí a byl poslán do vìzení na tajuplném a hrùzu nahánìjícím ostrovì. Dìj druhého dílu zaèíná tam, kde skonèil pøíbìh v jednièce. Ocitneme se v temných ulièkách mìsta Baltimore a za zmínku stojí hlavnì to, že v druhém díle si budete moci vybrat ze tøí rùzných zaèátkù podle toho, jak jste skonèili v díle prvním.

  • Conclusion: Nonostante questa critica, il gioco si difende bene, specialmente sotto il punto di vista dell'ambientazione, che trova una sua ragion d'essere e si piazza in mezzo tra titoli più action e altri più riflessivi, mantenendo però una atmosfera horror inquietante e a volte particolarmente interessante per alcune trovate che sembrano scaturire da una produzione cinematografica.
  • Pros: Un ottimo horror-spalatter;, Sonoro eccellente;
  • Cons: Grafica discreta;

  • Conclusion: F�r Horror-Fans, die auf schn�rkellose Action und eine dichte Gruselatmosph�re stehen und dabei �ber leichte technische Schw�chen sowie fehlenden Anspruch hinwegsehen k�nnen, ist The Suffering: Ties That Bind eine lohnenswerte Investition. Zwar reicht der Titel nicht ganz an Genre-Highlights wie die �Resident Evil�- oder �Silent Hill�-Serie heran, bietet daf�r aber ein kurzweiliges und kompromissloses Baller-Abenteuer ohne L�ngen.
  • Pros: Dichte Atmosphäre, Viel Action, Alternative Endsequenzen
  • Cons: Durchschnittliche Grafik, Dezent hakelige Steuerung

  • Conclusion: Ties That Bind bietet mehr von allem, was The Suffering beliebt machte - zugegebenermaßen aber ohne weltbewegende Neuerungen. Obwohl das Stadt-Szenario etwas mehr spielerische Freiheit verspricht, folgt der Spieler erneut einem linear vorgegebenen Weg und trifft teilweise auf dieselben Widersacher. Der spannenden, düsteren Atmosphäre tut das aber keinen Abbruch. Alle, die ihre Horror-Ausflüge gern actionreich haben, sind hier mal wieder gut aufgehoben.
