    My "Suffering" has ended...

    Two weeks ago my brother told me he had just finished playing this Survival Horror game called The Suffering, and that he had thought it was amazing. He said it's even scarier than resident evil or silent hill. He made... Read Full Review

    The Suffering comes in at a time where the horror genre has become slightly saturated and is dominated by only a few major franchises. While these games all have their good qualities they also receive complaints about ba... Read Full Review

    This game was given a similar type of controlling scheme to Hitman 2, but a little less complicated. I found the controls took a little getting use to at first, but once I learned how to dance, I was flying! This game is... Read Full Review

    * The Suffering * **( Pure Horror )**

    - The Suffering stars Torque, a family dismemberment specialist (or is he?), and full-time death-row inmate. Once he's banged up in a cell, the lights go out, the earth rumbles, and the delightful social chat between pri... Read Full Review

    A dark disturbing game that suffers from the typical shooter problems.

    The Suffering is one of the many impressive Midway games to be released on the PS2. The game has a dark (literally and figuratively) setting and lots of twisted creatures. This is the highlight of the game. Also the s... Read Full Review

    The Suffering proves that horror and action can go together.

    I'm not a fan of console shooters. As a matter of fact I just bought "The Suffering" 'cause my PC graphics cards would not handle it. I was pleasently surprised by the game. It took me some time to adjust to control t... Read Full Review

    Overall I enjoyed this game. The biggest thing that drew me into this game is that it was a horror game but more action oriented compared to the survival horror genre. The game was fun to play, and it creeped me out at... Read Full Review

    Good story with multiple conclusions, cool looking monsters, and buckets of blood that would put Carrie to shame.

    The Suffering is made out to be a mix of horror, action adventure, and third person shooting all wrapped into one with a few puzzles thrown in for good measure. Well, it's not. This game is essentially a third person sho... Read Full Review
