The Suffering

Will you survive in this terrifying prison?

I'm not particularly fond of terror and gore movies, and that extends to videogames of this ilk as well. However, I can still appreciate good examples of the horror genre, like The Suffering. View full description

I'm not particularly fond of terror and gore movies, and that extends to videogames of this ilk as well. However, I can still appreciate good examples of the horror genre, like The Suffering.

The game's story begins with the main character – you, that is – being sent to prison for killing his whole family, though as we eventually find out there is nothing to prove you guilty and you don't remember anything about it either. Soon after your entrance the prison is shaken by some kind of earthquake and a series of nasty, deadly creatures begin killing prisoners and prison guardians. In other words, chaos takes over everything.

This is where the real adventure begins. Without knowing what is really happening and having very few weapons, you mission consists on exploring the prison corridors and fighting these strange creatures.

Honestly, the graphics in The Suffering are not brilliant. But that doesn't prevent you from enjoying every single bit of the game, thanks to its easy gameplay and immersive plot.

The atmosphere in The Suffering can get really oppressive: the prison is so dark that sometimes you don't see a thing. Also you hear mysterious voices whispering at you all the time, only interrupted by people desperately screaming while being chopped up. If there's anything to complain about in The Suffering, it would be its level of violence. If you think you're not ready for really shocking, bloody scenes you'd better not try this one.

The Suffering is a great terror game that may not have the greatest graphics, but really gets you hooked up to the story.
