Revisit 2004’s ‘The Suffering’ and its Sequel Thanks to GOG.com

Fans of mid-2000s gaming might remember a little game called The Suffering. The game was a psychological horror shooter that took place in a haunted prison, and was unique for its attempts to separate itself from the survival horror games at the time. Sadly, despite it being a commercial success, its sequel Ties That Bind, failed to live up to expectations, and a potential series was canned.

So, why am I telling you this? Well, those PC gamers who have wanted to play The Suffering and its sequel have been out of luck for a while. The games don’t play well with modern systems, and they aren’t available on Steam. Enter the good folks at GOG.com, who today have added both games to their library. You can grab either title individually (at 10% off the normal price), or grab them in a pack (at 10% off as well).

In addition, GOG.com also has a sale on other Warner Bros. games, such as the F.E.A.R. and Mortal Kombat series. The sale expires on the 10th, so be quick.

    The Suffering kicks ass! GOG is on a role; I got Undying on there a little while ago because it wasn’t available on Steam and loved it.

  • Instabuy for me. Loved these on the PS2.

    Loved part 1, never tried part 2. Still has an awesome beginning and some trippy imagery.

      Words out of my mouth. Game was pretty cool. Remember one guy almost called somebody a cunt and got cut off but I remember being kind of shocked and laughing my ass off

      I made it about 30 minutes into Part 2 before quitting. There was just too many bad ideas in the game. Multiple types of guns that felt weak and offer no distinct advantage from one another. Making Turk’s “Beast mode” mandatory as in certain enemies could only be defeated while in Beast mode and walls/doors could only be knocked down in Beast mode. I enjoyed it more as a “bonus” badass ability. Plus if I remember right he was actually, physically changing in the game. I liked it better in part 1 that it was just a personality shift in Turk. The gameplay just felt sluggish compared to 1 and almost all the monsters were copy/pasted as well. The lore of the first game gave reasons why the monsters were what they were. There was zero reason why they would be the same in 2.
      I loved part 1 but part 2 was bad. You didn’t miss anything.

  • would be cool if they actually remastered it with some nice textures and gamepad support. oh well.

    The Suffering really scared me. I never finished part two, but I thought it was fun and a bit more action packed than the first. Either way, great horror games.

  • I’m still waiting for GOG to add some other old games to their list.

    Loved The Suffering and played the shit out of it to get all the endings, it reminded me of another adventure action type horror game I grew up with and still play on my phone with a n64 emulator despite the touchscreen controls making s boy differicukt but anyways it’s ShadowMan and just the original like The Suffering since the sequel didn’t match up at all, wish they’d remake it on the newer consoles cuz it was my fav game for a long time but was also scary as hell and I mean SCARY, to the point I couldn’t play some parts at nite alone lol
