It's good, but don't expect it to be true to the original

Summary: Game is fun and I love the 2 player co-op. has vertical split screens instead of usual horizontal which allows more to be seen. Fun watching the other player. The flow is not the same as the original Painkiller though which is very disappointing. It maintains some of the same monsters and settings, but isn't the same at all. It's like they combined a lot of it and created a condensed version where it overlaps. There were some very classic moments in the original.
Summary: I heard of this game after watching Zero Puncuation's review of it, and he made it sound awesome. And it is, to a point. It's like the oldschool shooters like Doom and Duke Nukem, but with a semi-modern polish. The campaign isn't very long, and there isn't much complexity to it, but it sure is fun. There's no inventory management, no collection of resources, no quick time events; there's not even a reload button. Just you and the enemy. A fun time for what it is.
Summary: Painkiller is a fun old school FPS, revamped for this generation with HD graphics, that comes from the same school as DooM with fast and addictive gameplay and countless hordes of enemies to mow down, alone or with a friend via co-op mode. Also, there's a multiplayer mode to keep the action going after the endgame.
Summary: An awesome HD version of an old masterpiece, perfectly adapted for the PS3 system. It'll give you hours of fun. And the contets of the Collector's Edition are very good too, especially the Soundtrack... Now, to the "BUT..." thing. Unfortunately, ONLINE doesn't work on this game. Seems like it's been abandoned right after the game release...same happened to the versions for the other platforms (PC included).
