The Suffering review (PS2)

HonestGamers
19 February 2006
  • Excerpt: In The Suffering, the abominations you encounter are not mazes to find your way past, but obstacles to be destroyed. Like a 1970s grindhouse flick, you’ll find yourself standing amid piles of bodies, blood drenching every scrap of skin and clothing left on your body.

The Suffering

Playstation Illustrated
11 September 2005
  • Excerpt: The PS2 version of Midway's The Suffering may not be as graphically crisp as its Xbox cousin, but the game holds its own. The Suffering absolutely fits within the survival horror genre, and the visuals complement this well. While many textures are noticeably tiling in certain areas, most of the game looks dark and creepy, just as intended.

  • Excerpt: I've been looking forward to this game ever since I played it at last year's E3. It was one of the only games they wanted you to play with headphones on so you can experience the ambience of Abbot for yourself. I wanted to play mainly for the gore factor, but this game turned out to be so much more. Though, towards the end it became more of a love-hate relationship with getting stuck in the environments, but overall, it was a very satisfying experience.

  • Excerpt: Forget survival horror, this is action horror. The lead character, Torque, isn’t here to survive; he’s here to thrive. Sentenced to death by lethal injection for the murder of his ex-wife and two children, a crime he doesn’t remember, Torque’s reputation precedes him: he’s been hardened by a previous sentence that cost him his marriage and he knows how to take care of himself.

The Suffering PlayStation 2 Review

Game Info Wire
5 June 2004
  • Excerpt: "The Suffering" isn't a perfect game, but it sure is good. It's a whole lot of running around and shooting into the dark, but hey, if you're a lover of adrenaline-pumping scare-fare action, this would be it.

  • Excerpt: 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 lot of fun.

PSX Extreme
23 April 2004
  • Excerpt: 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 puzzles are the keys to a good horror game, and the games created as a result of this line of thought have hurt the genre.
