  • Summary: A rather unusual mix of horror and fast action gameplay, Painkiller is gory and atmospheric, but really all it is is just action. The Purgatory setting and in fact the idea of fighting demons is very great. However the idea itself simply is not enough.

Good mindless fun

  • Summary: Wish it was longer. Maybe there will be another expansion, who knows?
  • Pros: Brings back the kind of action you had in Doom2 and Quake. With fairly modern graphics. (a little below HL2) Good variety of weapons and monsters. Challenging bosses. More replayability than most SP FPS games.
  • Cons: Expansion could have been better. Some of the harder fights will get tiresome after many tries.

  • Summary: To clarify: This uses it's own graphics engine (The PAIN engine, very aptly named). Havok is the physics engine, which gives the game it's realism. Very cool! This game is very fun! Fast paced, awesome sound track! Good stuff - fast paced action, AWESOME weapons!

  • Excerpt: Back in 2001,people had got tired of first person shooters (F.P.Ses for short) and started to uninstall quake3 arena and unreal tournament wondering if they would ever lay their hands on a shooter again.
  • Pros: Great engine ,Huge bosses and lots of monsters to shoot and kill
  • Cons: Repetitive Gameplay, Reminiscent of other games like Serious Sam, Nitro Family etc .

  • Excerpt: Holy ****, these things are coming from everywhere! This is an almighty game, quite unlike almost any other. In short, its a first person shooter where you blast all manner of horric monsters that Hell regurgetated into the next dimension (no pun intended) in levels varying from a prison to the pits...
  • Pros: Fantastic, scary, thrilling, this list is endless
  • Cons: According to some people its too linear .  But they are boring .

Simple but it works

  • Summary: Whilst the story can go throw itself the canal, the rest of Painkiller presents itself rather well. Enemies are unique and challenging, environments though often nonsensical and inconsistent are impressive and the boss fights are some of the best I've seen.
