This might hurt a little...

dnpttrsn, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "...Many criticizers of Painkiller say that the story is rubbish, and the levels too linear (as you must kill every monster in one area to progress to the next). I must say that I was tempted not to buy the game when I read this; but it is what makes the game so unique. To conclude, if you're a fan a first person shooters 'kill anything that moves' sort of games then this is definately what you've been searching for. And even if you don't like the sound ...
  • Pros: Fantastic, scary, thrilling, this list is endless
  • Cons: According to some people its too linear .  But they are boring .

Daniel Garner is PAINKILLER!

Spyke_Mar..., Ciao
5 April 2008
  • Excerpt: "...suffered from this release but Painkiller is also an old school FPS: lock, load and shoot without thinking. Will Rock, another game, was released the previous year but it wasn't really a hit. So, is it good for Painkiller to be an old school game, like a Doom? In fact, Painkiller is bringing some real new ideas but nothing is perfect. The first good point is probably the difference between difficulties. Daydream, for example, is the easiest ...
  • Pros: graphics, soundtrack, black tarot, weapons
  • Cons: only  5 weapons, useless cards

Painkiller - stake a vamp and run like hell

FlameDrui..., Ciao
21 December 2004
  • Excerpt: "...thinking a tenner on Ebay… Painkiller does it right and holds the player’s attention. You never feel tetchy at getting lost or being stuck because the game-play is conceptually simple whilst requiring concentration and co-ordination in order to stay whole. So, my order is in. At £16.99 inc delivery from Play.com, I am assured of great value. The £29.99 I wasted on Doom 3 will have to be put down to experience, but so far even the Painkiller demo ...
  • Pros: This is the real deal for FPS gamers
  • Cons: The online servers are underpopulated

Gives you that tingly feeling...

  • Excerpt: "...slash'em games but boy did PainKiller hit the mark! Here’s an insight into the story: PainKiller is a 'First Person Shooter' based on the story of Daniel Garner, a middle class 'average guy' who has not been allowed to enter heaven's gates after dieing in a car crash with his wife. His entrance had been 'deferred' for being someone who has neither been good enough nor bad enough to enter heaven or hell, so until a final decision is made by 'him' ...
  • Pros: Superb graphics, huge levels, HeeeUGE bosses, never - before - seen physics,  adrenaline pumping music !
  • Cons: Long loading times, multiplayer not outstanding, not for feint hearted .

  • Summary: Un jeu à la old-school, pas la peine de s'intéresser à Painkiller si on cherche du subtil car justement il a pris le parti de donner du fun immédiat, pas de scénar, rien, du bourrin pur comme aux débuts du FPS ^^ et c'est comme ça qu'il faut voir Painkiller. Si on ne comprend pas cela, on ne comprend rien au jeu... Il n'empeche que le jeu regorge de petites trouvailles sympa (le black tarot) et propose des environnements ultra variés. Y a de quoi faire !

  • Summary: Un genou à terre s'il vous plait, façe à Painkiller, le grand Painkiller! Tout simplement l'un des meilleurs fps que j'ai connu. La nérvosité des combats (enfin un fps vraiment défoulant), la grande diversité des décors et la superbe atmosphère qui s'en dégage, la classe général du jeu, le bunny jumping, le lance pieu...
