The original The Suffering was a decent enough action-horror-shooter combo set in a maximum security prison populated with all manner of suitably gruesome creatures that attempted to tear Torque’s limbs off at every turn. That is, when Torque wasn’t morphing into a equally gruesome creature himself, and inflicting similar carnage. Ties That Bind kicks off where the first game ended and there’s no prizes for guessing that what’s served up is essentially more of the same.
