Product description

Product Description

The Suffering redefines terror with a chilling look into a penitentiary haunted by tortured apparitions; the ghosts of executed prisoners emerge from the shadows of the gas chamber, or are glimpsed in the flash from a bare electric wire. Horror surrounds you.

With suspense building over nine levels, The Suffering features dynamic lighting that illuminates frightening visions and frantic combat sequences. In the dark world of The Suffering, creatures attack from the shadows and emerge from jail cells, chambers, the ground and trees, surprising the player in the most disturbing ways possible. As Torque, the main character, players encounter a cast of twisted, hardened criminals, prison guards and grotesque apparitions as they desperately try to escape.

Jailed for a murder he may or may not have committed, the disturbed Torque is next in line for execution when monstrous apparitions besiege the prison and inadvertently free him. More than 10 deadly weapons can be discovered as Torque sets out to uncover his past and unlock the deadly secrets of The Suffering. In the game, players can transform Torque into his monstrous alter ego and unleash the power of his primal fury to successfully destroy 12 horrific creatures. Depending on how they play the game, players will arrive at three distinct endings for a unique gaming experience. The Suffering is dripping with spooky atmosphere and a combination of storyline, style and gameplay that draws the gamer into a dark world.

I bought The Suffering while waiting for something I really wanted to come out, but I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of effort and detail that has gone into this game. Be warned though, it's dark and horrific, and the game seems to really revel in showing all the gruesome ways people can be sliced up, mutilated and tortured. You play Torque, a man imprisoned in one of the harshest prsions ever built, and it's up to you to make sense of what is happening when staff and inmates alike start getting mowed down by bloodthirsty supernatural monsters which appear seemingly from nowhere. The story hits the ground running in the first few minutes of play, when your character suddenly finds his cell door open and the prison in total chaos. Once out of your cell, it's a matter of making your way through the prison, and outside, hoprfully to freedom.
The thing that struck me while playing was the attention to detail present in the locations. Many of the rooms have working telephones, light switches, taps, lockers etc, and even though interacting with them sometimes proves to have no effect (flushing the toilet for example!) it's a great and realistic addition to the game world. Of course many of these things are important to the action, such as unlocking doors or finding supplies, so it pays to explore just what you can do in every new location. A word of warning also, be alert or else some parts of the game will pass you by. Some pathways and rooms containing supplies and even weapons can be completely bypassed if you are not thorough in exploring, so it pays to be cautious. This, of course, is only possible once you have cleared any areas completely of marauding monsters, and it's here that the meat of the game lies.

Become Torque, the inmate, who may or may not have killed his family and enter the suffering.
A truly addictive game, with a variety of areas for you to battle your way through, inculding a prison, a quarry and even a lighthouse, the game allows to you to choose you charchters, actions and his final destiny with its morality scale.
You can help others
You can kill others
Or you can do nothing
Each of these actions will determin Torques outcome, and with the highly addictive gameplay, you will want to start once at the end just to see what the other endings are.
One of the few drawbacks with this game is that the controls can be slightly difficult to work at first, but once you have become used to them, they become second nature.
Complete with a host of enimies, both human and otherwise, the suffering is a game, that is definiatly worth a try

Right, first off... what might be thought of as bad points to some. The first cut scene when your character Torque arrives at the prison... there is a HUGE AMOUNT of seriously harsh language, only rivalled by some of the more grotesque and gory elements of this game. Also, if you like puzzles to be a big part... well to be blunt (as per other reviews), nothing you come across is going to really make you feel like you're trying to join MENSA.... So, with those minor issues out of the way... What's good?

Frankly - all of the game is a pretty comprehensive package;a well paced plot, full of scares, hardships and choices that will ultimately effect the outcome of the game.

The PLOT: The main character (Torque) is sent to the prison on Carnate Island to live out his numbered days (he has got a death sentence to look forward to). Whilst he settles in, all hell seems to break loose as does his cell door - when he first explores he finds lots of bodies (and parts of bodies) and it seems the whole place is going to hell (literally). So, with the immediate future looking darker than it was when he arrived (which considering is a pretty big step)... he decides to use the opportunity to escape and maybe find out more of the truth behind him being there.

The SCARES: of these... there are many, the overall atmosphere is excellent with a VERY well thought out sound scape that adds to the look of a prison that is going to hell (in the literal sense). The baddies are pretty well varied, each of them have an appearance that in some warped and gruesome way reflects what kind of death they refer to (designed by Stan Winston studios - responsible for such great movie monsters as the Predator and Avatar)...

I dont complete many games but this I did.
I only bought it recently (come on who'd buy a game without knowing much about it with that cover art. yuck)
The game is so gripping, the controls are so fluid, and the storyline is just brilliantly intense and interesting.
Although no games are scary this did leave me with a feeling of butterflies in my stomach while playing.
The game has three endings and the way you play indicates whether or not you were guilty (when you were placed on Death row for killing your family) For example there are times when you pass gas chambers or the electric chair with someone inside. You can decide to let the person live, or let the prison officer who made your life hell frazzle to the bone.
The psychology used in the game is rather good to. For example in one scene you look on a cctv screen to see the exact room your in, with you in the exact place you are in the room...but with a monster-thingy with blades for limbs lurching begin ready to attack. So you move from that view to turn round and kill it. But its not there. So you look in the cctv screen again. But where the monster was is a pile of blood stretched along the floor. In another theres an empty electric chair, but if you turn on the on switch for the electricity you see yourself being executed. Freaky
this game is just simply brilliant. Well designed . Excellent. Never has a game used lighting to its effect so good either.
Just buy it, you wont regret it.
