A man known only as "Torque" is sentenced to death for the murder of his wife and two sons, an event he can remember nothing about, and is soon locked up on death row at Abbot State Penitentiary, the toughest, nastiest prison in Maryland. Torque has little time to lament his fate, as Abbot is suddenly overrun by strange monsters. As guards and prisoners alike are cut down by the creatures, who seem to embody different methods of death, from be-headings to lethal injection to being buried alive, Torque must battle these beasts (with guns, improvised weapons, and even an adrenaline-fueled rage ability that almost literally turns him into a monster) if he hopes to get off Carnate Island alive. Along the way, he'll learn more about Carnate's sordid history, including the restless spirits of a former prisoner, a former executioner, and a psychologist who's not quite right in the head himself. He'll also encounter friendly faces along the path to freedom, and whether he chooses to help ... Written by Andrew P.

Good premise and spooks but
15 March 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Definitely not for kids under 14 ,, has alot of strong language,cuss words. The environment is spooky and you actually feel like your there sometimes in the prison.On the PS2 the graphics arent anything spectacular though ,sometimes a little pixilated but ok. The things I didnt like about this game were #1 the repetitive monsters ,the same ones showing up over and over and #2 the pain in the ass controls,you move with the left stick and your aim and turning is down with the right stick , so if your rounding a corner you need to move the left stick forward and the right stick in the corresponding direction that you need to face , makes fighting difficult as most of these creatures move fast and get in behind you by the time you aim. I dont know why they couldnt have just used the control pad to move and turn at the same time.2 knobs is a pain in the ass. the games gets high marks for eerie environment and chills but gets low ones for playability and monster graphics.
