  • Excerpt: Software reviewed on an AMD Phenom 64 and ATI Radeon HD3870 X2 Check out AMD & ATI Radeon at www.amd.com The Painkiller franchise continues with the latest addition to the series, Painkiller Overdose which ironically started as a community based project but proved so popular among fans that the original publisher decided to allow DreamCatcher Games to turn the title into a fully fledged standalone game.

Painkiller: Overdose

GameTrailers
12 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The original Painkiller was a refreshing old-school style shooter with slick graphics and a really nice physics engine. Now, several years later, Painkiller: Overdose has been released and shows that this stand alone expansion pack has absolutely nothing new to offer. Painkiller: Overdose completely ditches the demon-slaying main character from the earlier game in favor of a new one.

Painkiller: Overdose review (PC)

HonestGamers
2 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The game does a lot right, and is worth a playthrough just to see what each level has for you. They all have a similar feel, but at the same time are all very different. Enemies aren't reused. There aren't any palette swaps in this adventure. An impressive line is walked in that aspect. Unfortunately, all is not well in purgatory. While all of the aesthetics are in order, problems come up in the mechanics themselves.

Painkiller: Overdose Review

GameSpot
2 November 2007
  • Summary: This stand-alone Painkiller expansion is pure, stupid fun, despite slow loads and an utter lack of innovation.
  • Pros: Pure, dumb shooting fun, Varied, surreal level settings and architecture, Horror-show monster lineup
  • Cons: Exceptionally mindless (though whether that's a pro or con depends on your point of view), Regular visual slowdowns, Loooong load times

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation PC Review

DarkZero
6 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I always find myself getting a little giddy when a new first-person shooter (FPS) comes along that tries to re-sprout interest in the arcade, twitch-action genre. In the 90s and early 2000s, we had a collection of great first-person shooters that emphasised pure action. Doom , Quake , Duke Nukem and Serious Sam all required the player to have fast hand-eye coordination, sharp aiming, abuse bunny hopping, and strafe around enemies just to survive.

Painkiller: Overdose PC Review

DarkZero
21 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Remember back in 2004, the release of ID Software’s much hyped mega-sequel, Doom 3. Ten years in the making and released to a fair bit of critical acclaim, but somewhat less applause from the consumer. You see, Doom’s legendary intense and violent combat had been replaced with dark corridors, torchlight and jack-in-the-box style scares.

Painkiller: Overdose

31 October 2010
  • Summary: Подобные развлечения лучше всего потреблять небольшими порциями — только в этом случае и впечатления будут наиболее сильными, и все огрехи останутся на втором плане. В противном случае бестолковая стрельба по тряпочным монстрам начнет быстро раздражать. Бесит же здесь все — предсказуемость ситуаций, непревзойденная тупость противников, недостаток патронов и однообразие происходящего в целом.

  • Summary: На старожилов и рассчитана Painkiller: Overdose . Если вы готовы повторить банкет во второй раз, невзирая на трехлетней давности геймплей и картинку, то от « Передозировки » вам дурно не станет. Тем более что иного выбора у фанатов нет: Painkiller 2 Serious Sam 3 сейчас едва маячат на горизонте.
