The Suffering is one of the earliest horror action games I ever played and one that I can always go back to play again.
You play as Torque, a guy who is sent to prison for the murder of his wife and children, did he really do it? was he framed? I dunno probably. Anyway as you arrive at the prison some evil demonic force takes over the prison and demonic beings start killing everyone. It is up to you to escape with your life and uncover some dark history of the prison/island as you go along.
The game play is that of a third person shooter but you can try to play in 1st person as well, though I don’t recommend it, its not the best, particularly because the monsters can come at you from all sides.
I give this game a glowing recommendation and to its sequel as well, it has a great story (I still don’t know what is up with that Dr. Killjoy)and the game play is very tolerable. Have you played The Suffering? what did you think of it? Let me know what you thought of it.
Spooky Factor: It can get pretty spooky, the graphics might ruin it though.
