The Suffering: Ties That Bind

Suffering: Ties that Bind is more than the typical “second verse same as the first” style of sequel. It’s the kind of sequel that gamers look for, just as if you were to see a great horror film and then anxiously await the next installment to get all the answers. You know the gist of what’s to come, you just don’t quite know where it’s coming from. That’s what makes a game like this so special, unpredictability. A must by for horror fans, no question. view
