Summary: By the time you figure out that you're in a prison with some sort of supernatural thing happening...you've already killed 7 creatures. The fact that the majority of the game relies on darkness should tell you why it is so scary. I didn't think it was still around but I played it on the Xbox original one fateful day back in about 2006...it is one of my all time faves.
Conclusion: The Suffering is one of the few titles that manages to rise above the genre it occupies; the survival-horror experience. It does this mainly because of a great story, some compelling characters (check out the psychotic warden of Abbot prison) and some truly revelatory and shocking moments. I especially liked how the game is as much an exploration of the main character's psychoses as it is about the exploration of Carnate Island itself.
Conclusion: This game is a very great game. This game blows HALO & HALO 2 out of the water. It has a very good story with even better graphics. Its nice and creepy with random flashbacks and hearing voices in your head. This game really warps you into it. Not some boring first person shooter ( you can choose for it to be 3rd person or 1st whenever you want) where you run around and shoot aliends and everyone saying your the best when the truth is your just overrated, not mentioning...
Conclusion: The Suffering is an extremely vulgar, horrific delve into the mind of a madman. You play as Torque, a killer convicted of murdering his wife and child. Whether or not he really did this will depend on how you play the game as there are 3 possible endings. The view can be switched between 3rd person or 1st person views, which is something I would love to see more games make use of. It can be very useful at times to see your character.
Conclusion: Sure, we’ve had our taste of horror games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil, but have you ever played a horror title that also contains a load of fast paced action? Midway’s The Suffering is one of those games. Now, I know Midway hasn’t had the most stellar titles coming out recently, despite their great past. Will The Suffering be Midway’s horror hit, or will it sink into the abyss of Midway’s other failed experiments? Find out in my review of The Suffering.
Conclusion: The Suffering is aptly named. That is how one could have described me as I was attempting to play this hacker-game. I wasn't impressed with the graphics, gameplay, story...NOTHING! I hope Midway isn't expecting this one to pull them from the depths of return-on-investment hell that most developers and publishers are going through right now. Little Johnny's mom and dad aren't going to give him fifty big ones to return home with this.
Summary: This along with Max Payne was a game I never thought I'd buy due to it's much publicised,at the time,bad language/violence,however when it was cheap enough I thought I'd chance it. I was wrong,yes they do swear a lot but they are on death row,I didn't expect them to be model citzens as it were.
Summary: I have just completed the game for the first time, oh somewhere around 10 hours! lol, depends on how much you explore really? Well have to say I'm a big fan of horror survival games esp resident evil, and this doesn't dissapoint! It's very good, more action than puzzle solving, there are a few to do but most are obvious, sometimes you may get stuck but if you search well enough you find your way! The graphics are very good as is the music which adds to the tension.
