The Suffering: Ties That Bind is a action survival horror video game developed by Surreal Software and published by Midway Games. It was released in September 26th, 2005 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Windows/PC. To get a USK-18 rating and also avoid being indexed, the German version like the first game was censored to tone down the violence.
