The Suffering is a third person action shooter with a horror theme.
I have been playing The Suffering a lot recently, it was originally a paid game from 2004 but in september of 2008 Midway made the game free to play supported with ads, an internet connection is required otherwise The Suffering won't run. The game is a third person action shooter with a horror theme, you play as Torque a convict who allegedly killed his wife and kid tough he said he doesn't remember, Torque is then sent to Abbott State Penitentiary on Carnate Island which as we learn trough the game is a pretty horrible place. As soon torque is placed in his cell all hell brakes loose, literally! you will fight all kinds of horrors and mutations trough Carnate insland and do some light puzzle solving along the way, which is a long way btw since i still haven't finished the game even tough i have played it a lot. The game suppossedly has 3 different endings depending on what deeds you did during your journey so that adds a little replayabilty to the game which is fine by me. Like i said at the beginning the game is ad supported so you will probably see some ads when playing, the ones i have seen personally have been some banners advertising the new G1 phone or something tough i have read that other people had to sit trough some videos when loading like for example movie trailers, this may turn off some people but remember that you get a full game for free. I am not 100% sure if the game will work in every region of the world but if it doesn't (like it happened to reader of mine in another game) try to put a U.S. proxy into Internet Explorer and run the game, hopefully The Suffering will think that you are in the United States and allow you to play normally. If that doesn't work you are screwed and i am so sorry.
In conclusion if you like action games with a bit of horror then The Suffering is a pretty good choice. Available for Windows 98/2000/2003/XP/Vista.
