Painkiller (PC)

Rex Inego, Verdicts
30 September 2012
  • Excerpt: A game that has been out for some whil,e Painkiller is a classic. To most veterans, it's a standing memory of the good ages, where FPS games would consist of a massive amount of mindless killing, which was, in fact, preffered over tactic-using.

  • 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 .

This might hurt a little...

20 October 2008
  • 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

Sir Squidshaker, Amazon

  • 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.

Daniel Garner is PAINKILLER!

Spyke_Mar..., Ciao
5 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Daniel Garner is a guy almost as normal as the others. Why? He's dead. Car accident. His wife Catherine didn't survive. Like him. People will think that they're together in death. Beautiful, isn't it? Reality is different. Catherine is in Heaven... but not Daniel. He's stuck in Purgatory.
  • Pros: graphics, soundtrack, black tarot, weapons
  • Cons: only  5 weapons, useless cards

The real successor to Doom and Quake

ipshop, Play.com
4 June 2006
  • Conclusion: Painkiller is perhaps much more of a successor to the old Doom and Quake games than the official versions. This game is simple, straightforward blasting. The plot is a pretty thin excuse to blow seven shades out of everything, and the fact that the cut scenes are pretty poor and hard to follow is...

Good Game overall

E. Conway, Amazon
24 March 2006
  • Summary: I have played a large number of first-person shooters over the years. Painkiller was one of the better ones, but not the best. It belongs in the second tier of shooters. It can not compete with the top tier of shooters such as Half-Life, Far Cry etc. but is none the less an enjoyable experience.

Careful

Everett, Amazon
18 October 2005
  • Summary: This is not the Black Edition as listed on the title of the page, but rather the Gold Edition as shown in the image. Gold Edition is 6 CD's in paper sleeves, Black Edition is on DVD with a swank case. They both have the same content however.
