Where Ties That Bind does distinguish itself from the average shooter is with the heavy focus on plot. If you’ve played the original then you’ll know how anti-hero Torque is - seemingly having murdered his wife and kids in a fit of insane agitation. Intense flashbacks and visions are the main tools used to communicate the story and the way you behave towards 'innocents' will have a bearing on the final outcome of the game - and incidentally, the types of attack that Torque will acquire in his beefed-up monster form over the course of the adventure.
