The Ideal Horror Game

Brian Hakala, Amazon
22 September 2005
  • Summary: After I finished playing this game, i can honestly say it was one of the few games i've played that was truly scary. It has all of the perfect elements of a good horror game. A big part of the gameplay is just walking around the prison and hearing all the terrifying screams of other inmates and...

New type of survival horror

Shaide, Amazon

  • Summary: Great survival horror shooter/adventure. The game is fairly dark and well written. Plus it has a twist ending. Haven't tried the sequel, but that's next on my playlist.

Much more difficult than I remember it being.

Lance Goen, Amazon
30 August 2005
  • Summary: When I first bought this game many years ago, I was amazed at how difficult yet fun it was. I ended up selling it because it froze on me many times. When I saw that there was a sequel I decided to buy it again and try to see how it ended.

The suffering is scary

J. Reichert, Amazon
30 August 2005
  • Summary: Okay most people think of Silent Hill or Resident Evil when somebody says horror. Well this game is not only fun but it tries something new, 1st person and 3rd person viewpoints! And the best part is that you can switch at anytime and neither one is better than the other it is all just preference.

Very interesting title! Good enough for a novel.

Taylor, Amazon
30 August 2005
  • Summary: I was 10 years old when this game came out, and at the time I wasn't allowed to play "mature" rated videogames. I'm 16, and I've gotten more interested in a few survival-action-horror videogames lately. But lets cut to the chase.

Really Surprising!

Review Lover, Amazon
30 August 2005
  • Summary: I wasn't expecting to like 'The Suffering' at all, seeing as how, to me, Survival Horror is defined by the Silent Hill and Fatal Frame series of games. Happily, 'The Suffering' is like a merry blend of the best bits of the atmosphere of those games with a free and easy (albeit flawed) control system...

Incredible Game

Kyle Catwin, Amazon
30 August 2005
  • Summary: I played this game at E3 and it kicks ...! It was very immersive. Guys breaking through windows, getting sucked up through vents all while I was playing. The graphics do a good job of conveying the creepy feel of a prison. The controls are great - very similar to Halo or Max Payne.

HORROR AT ITS FINEST

Jamal Salem, Amazon
30 August 2005
  • Summary: Finally a good survival horror title has arrived for the PS2. The Suffering is truly survival horror at it's finest. In it you play as Torque; a convict on death row for killing his family or so it seems.

Awesome Game

Amazon
30 August 2005
  • Summary: This game is awesome. Don't listen to the Rez Evil/Silent Hill 2 fans. This game evolves the survival horror genre. MAtter of fact it isn't even survival horror its action horror. The controls are awesome, pretty much exactly like Halo. I really like the fact you can go into 1st person if you want.

Solid, horrific fun

N. Durham, Amazon
29 August 2005
  • Summary: The Suffering, Midway's much hyped about survival horror game, is solid, horrific fun from beginning to end. Playing as death row inmate Torque, the newest resident of an island prison, he is one of the few survivors of an attack by some horrific monsters in the prison.
