    If your looking for a good violent game this is it.Its not very complicated, but thats the point.To just go out and kill some crazy lookin creatures and a few humans to. If your looking for hard puzzles dont look here,but you should have gotten that from the first one,so this is no suprise. Its not the all time best game, but the graphics, storyline, and "insanity" are awesome.Oh,and you If your looking for a good violent game this is it.Its not very complicated, but thats the point.To just go out and kill some crazy lookin creatures and a few humans to.

So remember that when you play it, so you don't get "annoyed". Expand

    It's about time we are presented with another great game for its genre. Only a few games I believe should deserve a mature rating and I'm glad this is one that made the list.

  1. There are enough things that feel distracting to keep this from becoming a classic game, but a strong enough foundation of gameplay and direction to make it a worthy addition to the console library.
  2. But take heart, horror-inclined gamers. Any random two minutes of Ties that Bind’s blood-soaked gameplay is likely to give your parents, stuffy friends or sensitive authority figures of your choice the dribbling shiznits, and pretty much all the first game’s good stuff has remained intact.
  3. Satisfying survival/horror gameplay with a first/third-person shooter twist. Ties That Bind has one of the most disturbing storylines I have ever seen in a game.
