Excerpt: It's sort of unusual that MTV hasn't properly capitalized on the success of Jackass, Viva La Bam, and the Jackass movies. Instead of bringing a full-fledged game complete with proper physics, and ludicrous acts, MTV chose the PSP as the platform to release a Jackass game onto.
Summary: Pain is a fine example of what can be done with the Havok physics engine, some destructive urges, and little else. It twists its basic principle of using a fleshy crash-test dummy as slingshot ammo into several compelling single- and multiplayer modes, all of which tap into the same primal urges...
Pros: Great use of Havok physics engine, Smartly sophomoric sense of humor, Breaking stuff is fun
Conclusion: If you're looking for a cheap way to amuse yourself on a rainy day, PAIN might do the trick -- unfortunately, you're out of luck if the week's forecast calls for thunderstorms. We can't help but wish for a slightly lower price point.
Excerpt: Writers comment: I can not promise that this review will be spoiler-free so if you do not wish to have anything ruined before playing this game please do not read on, otherwise enjoy having the game spoiled! 10 Second Snippet: Insane downloadable game for the playstation network.
Pros: Fun and original gameplay, Great music, Excellent Multiplayer, Funny humour
Cons: Game feels a little cheated, Only one playable stage, Can get repetitive quickly
Summary: PAIN is nu eindelijk ook op Blu-ray verschenen, inclusief diverse downloadable content waar in de PlayStation Store gewoon voor betaald moet worden. Zodoende valt de adviesprijs van 29,99 euro al wel iets meer te rechtvaardigen.
Conclusion: Titre très fun et particulièrement agréable à jouer en mode casual à plusieurs. On apprécie la dose d'humour collée sur un jeu au concept débile mais amusant. Pour les grands enfants uniquement.
