Summary: O.K. so this may not be the best game out there at the moment, but it is probably one of the most ebjoyable and funny games on the market at present. It can take a little while getting the hang of all the controls, and a little while longer still to get to know the best zones and how to get the best out of each character's own indivdual quirks.
Pain is an excellent game... but you need to invest time to learn how to play it properly.

Summary: Marty Depolo has written a good review of the game. What I will say is this: even without the Hoff character (which you'd have to buy separately), you'll probably get more hours out of this game than most, so in that respect it's a no-brainer if you want a game that has lasting appeal. Try to play this game at a friend's before buying it, as I know a lot of people don't "get" what the game is really about.
Summary: This has gotta be 1 of the funniest VG on PS3. The concept is that you slingshot a character into objects & the more painful the impact is & the damage caused, the more pts. you'll accumulate. It's not just shoot + hit = pts, you can elongate your discharge by rolling around (using the `Ooch' meter) & hope to collide with further objects such as oncoming vehicles or explosive boxes to create a chain which boosts the pts. meter further.
Conclusion: I have had this game for a while of the PSN, and it is so much fun and so funny. one of the best PSN games. easy to get to grips with and with a whole host of crazy charactors to fire into building and other things. included the legend that is THE HOFF. and there is loads of downloadable content for it as welll. with new charactors and envioments too. trust this is worth getting there never a dull moment in pain. you laugh so hard. just buy it.
Conclusion: Ok, this a very basic game, but if you go for the trophies it's one of the toughest. This is one of the funnest, funniest multiplayer games I've ever owned. Get some friends round, and fire these freaks around.
