It's similiar in the atmosphere, but not the gameplay I reckon.

Played it for some time at my friends place...

I've wanted to play "The Suffering" in the worst way...but it was delayed getting to the stores, then I started Theif: DS then I got the new 6800GT so it took kind of a back seat to getting the the system up & running and games I have working,.....but I been hearing only good things about The Suffering, now that everything is running ace...maybe I'll pick it up after work :)

this game has only the FPS style of play with SS2. it is alot of suspense, and no technology like SS2

the controls are very customizable in the options, which is good cause i use wierd button combos.. and in game, things are very easy to use and done well. the camera is done very well, and you can choose between first and third person views

I have also been hearing about how scary this game is. I've been trying to get it for a couple of days with no luck, though. Let's hope fortune smiles on me on Friday. :)

I have it but I'm to afraid to play it :( I hope it's not as scary as Undying.

"Hold it right there or I will shoot you down! You hear me, inmate!!"

"Kiiiiiiiiilll Hiiiiiiim!!!

"Don't do it, T! He might be able to help you!!"

"HE'S A PARASITE!!!!

"He's only scared and confused ... just like you, dear!!"

Hmmmm, what's a Torque do to, eh?!? :D

Very good, very scary, very bloody and warped game!! :)

Sorry guys, I have to rain on this parade :rolleyes: ....I bought the game, played it and did not like it at all and not because its scary..I have very little fear of anything(not female ;))
but because it felt too much like a consol port. The game, imo...looked bad,even at 16x12 4x\8x the graphics were gainy and bland of texture, the controls felt like mush, not fun in game with fast enemies..and what's the deal with the guns....since when can you do more damge with a shank...8-10 shots to kill one baddie compaired too 3-4 hits with the blade????
I do agree the sound was good.....

I returned it to EB....and put the $$ on my Doom3 pre-order :)

i got it today, i cranked the surround and played with lights off, its pretty freaky espcially when u start off in ur cell and the creature goes flying by and cuts open ur cell i jumped then coz i didnt expect anything to happen when i got control of torque.
i recommend this game, the graphics when the creatures kill the guards is a bit dodgy, i recan this game would be perfect if it had ragdoll!

This game is great. I started playing it yesterday and ive been very impressed so far!

One problem tho, the game seems to have weird graphics glitches everytime i go to flush the ingame toilets or try to rush things, don't know why?? I have to restart the game everytime the graphics go funny.

Apart from that Its a must have if you like resident evil\tomb raider type games. :)
