You are Torgue, an inmate sent to prison for killing your wife and two kids. After a massive quake you are set free. Only to now have to survive long enough to find out the truth of what really happen when your family died. Fight off horribly mangled creatures and inmates with 10 powerful weapons. Unleaseh your alter ego and destroy everything in front of you. A plus to this game is its two alternate endings, a morality choice if you will. You also suffer from hallucinations and black outs. Play this game in the dark in surround sound, it will scare the bejesus out of you. Scared me pretty good. Heres a list of the quality of the game on a scale of 1 to 10. 1 being horrible and 10 being perfect.
Graphics-6/10
Repaly Value-8/10
Gore-9/10
Voiceovers-5/10
Story-7/10
Movement-6/10
Boss Fights-5/10
All in all its a game that deserves to be looked at.

The Suffering is what you get when you combine the creepy atmosphere of Silent Hill and the shoot 'em up game play of Max Payne. This combination makes for a really fun survival horror game. In The Suffering, you play as Torque, who was convicted of killing his wife and two kids and has been sentenced to Abott State Penitentiary where he's scheduled to get the needle. Torque has been prone to blackouts for a long time now and doesn't even know if he killed his family or not. Not only that, but Abott takes place on an island that has a pretty dark and depressing history and is ten miles off the coast of Maryland, so geographically, it's pretty isolated from the rest of the world. That means that it's not a very convenient place for a monster outbreak to happen. And guess what? That's exactly what happens. Not too long after you're thrown in your cell, monsters show up and start killing everybody and you have to escape. The game play consists of moving from one level to the next killing anything that stands between you and freedom. The game is focused on action. Ammo is plentiful and it's a lot of fun blasting the seemingly endless supply of freaks the game throws at you. You can play the game in a first or third person view and can switch between these two views at any time by pressing the white button. You have an insanity bar that fills up as you keep killing monsters. Once that bar fills up, you get to change into a monster yourself and effortlessly hack your foes into little pieces. Throughout the course of the game you will be able to learn about the history of Carnate Island and that each of the monsters is based on different execution methods and how they relate to the dark history of the island. You'll be able to make choices in the game that determines what ending you get and whether or not you actually killed your family. Those of you who want more action and shooting with your horror, The Suffering is the game for you.

I think that The Suffering is one of the best horror video games besides FEAR. If you like games that keep you on the edge of your seat The Suffering is the game for you.
