  • Summary: buy it.. also be sure to buy the origional painkiller because its the best. and you might want to play it in order.
  • Pros: games have pleanty monsters, secrets and unlockables, graphics are pleasing and the games are somewhat challenging. you can actually show off your skill with painkiller, unlike newer more graphical games.
  • Cons: overdose is the only game out of the painkiller series that i did not enjoy.

  • Summary: Bloody massacre coupled with unusual weapons. One of the first big titles with Havok physics. This is most unexpected game which rightfully earned AAA status in gamers' minds shortly after release.

Favorite FPS, still!

  • Summary: My current 7950GT w/E8400 was 180-400 FPS during game I just played through to check! Don't take my word for it, you can get playable demos on their web site, search for it... checked, it's still going strong.
  • Pros: Runs great even on less than stellar current hardware. I recall 70+ FPS on a 7600GS system. Very good if you like the FPS genre, so creepy and frantic at times especially with the music playing. There are some puzzle elements for sure, but I won't ruin anything, very tough in spots, but doable, h...
  • Cons: Sequel (not expansion) Painkiller Overdose, fair warning, that game is completely separate, but also very good. Not for kids or sensitive types.

Awesome run-n-gun shooter

  • Summary: AWESOEME.
  • Pros: Awesome gameplay. It really does well in making it seem your up against the whole entire army of hell. The graphics have also aged very well. You be hard pressed to find a better run-n-gun shooter.
  • Cons: None for me.

Great Game

  • Summary: Bought from the Great NewEgg, because it was of course Cheaper and My local Computer Software Shops have become Console havens with no real catalog of pc games so I didn't want to wait forever to get it.

Great Shooter

  • Summary: This game is alot of fun, just an outright shooter. Not a dumb as say the first Doom, but not as slow as Doom 3 and not as wrapped up about showing off it graphic capablity as Half Life 2. I played the Orignal and wanted teh expansion so I ordered this to have the whole thing on dvd.

very good game

  • Summary: very good game i have beat it a friends house and the multiplayer seems very fun, and just to clarify this game does NOT use the hl2:source engine, it uses the havok physics engine which is similar to what hl2 uses for its physics.

Great game!!

  • Summary: I agree with the last post about it being a little silly and whatnot. But it is awsome. I honestly think that it's one of the coolest games I've ever played. And, I'm only playing the demo that came with my 6800GT card. I will be ordering this card when I finish writing this review.

oldskool shooter

  • Summary: It's dumb and silly, but once you get into it, it's a very addicting game. I've had more fun with this than with Far Cry.

  • Summary: Being a Morrowind and UT2004 fan, I thought I'd try something different. Once you get into it, this game doesn't disappoint. The graphics and detail are, as the saying goes, eye candy. While the story line is ok, the action and especially the weapons more than make up for it.
