Good but not as good as the 1st suffering
6 March 2011
Summary: I really did enjoy playing this game it was fun and full of action but it was not really as good or as freaky as the the 1st suffering the game was awesome u should play this case it is fun but the 1st is way better buy both and give it a try
Summary: i bought this game after playing the first suffering. the first one was fantastic and the storyline kicked butt. this one was ok but the story line was a little confusing and not at all what i expected. depending on how you finished the first one (good evil or neutral ending) this game didnt make sense. it only made sense if you finished the first with the evil ending which was disapointing to me. (The reviewer was compensated for posting this review.
Summary: I was huge fan of the first game. The Suffering was my favorite game on the PS2 and I have never been so freaked out by a video game. I anxiously waited for the sequel and pre orderd it. What a let down! The story is thin. The setting is thin. While the first game made you believe a prison Island could be totally haunted, it;s hard to believe the same as much about Baltimore. Anyone whos ever been to Baltimore knows there is alot scarier things there than ghosts.
Summary: Cool graphics with some neat looking monsters. Story line wasnt the greatest, but it might just be me...plus, I didnt play the first game in the series. Maybe that would have made the story line more interesting and understandable. Otherwise, the game gave me a reasonable amount of play time to conclude it and it was fun. Even scared me a couple times! Good game for $15 or less.
Summary: I was, and still am a huge fan of suffering. I just wish my ties that bind game (ps2) would stop freezing up at the end of certain battles. Twice now I have had to start over at my last save to try to continue in the game. I don't have any cheats activated, so I'm not sure what's up?? I did read a few other reviews with the same problem...any solutions, besides starting all over?...I'm about half way through the game.
Summary: Just a Note: This game is a sequel, so you might want to pick up the first title before delving into 'The Ties That Bind'. My biggest problem with Ties That Bind is that the first-person view doesn't allow for a wide view of the landscape. I continually find myself wanting more space on the screen and I can't get it. The tactic may have been used for dramatic effect, but it only frustrates me.
Summary: I have three of "Ties that bind" now,in hopes of finding one that will play through, and have never gotten past the ladder in the prison due to glitches and lockups. I have compleatly given up now which is sad because the game is so much Fun! I loved this one as much as the original until the glitches kicked in. I really wanted to give this game a top rating in hopes to get a Suffering 3, but as they say in the love stories,"I have been hurt one to many times now".
BUGS galore; tedious ending. MIDWAY PLEASE PLAY TEST YOUR GAMES PLEASE!!!!

Summary: If you can ignore the two big problems I will list next, the following review applies: Decent if formulaic sequel to a good shooter/horror game. Doesn't have the "creep" factor of the original but that is a consequence of all sequels. New human enemies are an interesting change. Combat is still fun :) THE TWO BIG PROBLEMS: 1. This game is BUGGY. FAR FAR too buggy for any console game (or indeed any PC game from a reputable developer/publisher).
Change the title! How to screw up a game in one easy lesson!

Summary: A million glitches and freezes, no way to figure out or complete any ending, a complete struggle all the way. No pc cheats or hints anywhere on the web. This game sucks plain and simple. Got all the way to the end and couldn't get the game to finish. Piece of c rap!!
