Summary: short and simple... Doom 3 is a dissapointment, and compared to doom 3 painkiller is the better game by far! So far its taken me 4 days to play this game and im almost at the end, ive had absolutely no problems installing it, no problems running it, ive had no bugs, freezes or crashes, the game runs...
Summary: If you were disappointed with Doom 3, if you loved the early Quake and Doom genre, this is the game for you. The first couple of levels are just a romp but as the game develops it gets really quite spooky. First rate graphics and sound contribute to a grass roots FPS with real class.
Summary: Many games in the FPS genre tend to introduce amazing levels with great texture engines and jaw dropping graphics, painkiller does all this but boasts so much more as a game in terms of sheer adreniline pumping fun.
Summary: brainless fun. this game is much closer in some ways to the original doom games then doom3 is.just lots of monsters and very big bosses.great weapons and you must play the game through some half decent headphones to really hear the sounds in this game.
Summary: Painkiller is great fun. it brings back the sort of gameplay from doom. It's also a good break from spending time on tactics. the weapons are also great. pinning your enemy to a wall is alot more fun than just spraying your enemy with waves of bullets.
Summary: This is an awesome shooter which harks back to the glory days of Doom and Quake. The frantic pace and huge levels of detail goes towards making this a very absorbing and fun gaming experience.
Summary: Painkiller is a work of art. The scenes and other effects are enough alone to keep you glued to the monitor. There is a little bit of headwork needed to get through some levels, but the lighting, graphics, sound, movement, and all the other effects in this dynamic game are pointing the way forward...
Summary: I feel sorry for all the people who bought this game to be a competitor to Far Cry and the like as you clearly didn't read any of the pre-release reviews. This game was never created to be one of fantastic AI or mind-numbingly complex missions.
Summary: I also played the demo: and i gotta say i am looking forward to this game more than any other. With half life 2 delays this is just the thing to spice the market up, it is worth it purely for the real world physics: which will blow your mind. runs pretty smooth even on my mid range PC.
