About the Game

William "Bill" Sherman has a problem - he's dead. Blown to pieces by his own C4 payload, which he wanted to eliminate a South American druglord with on behalf of some shady secret service people. The fact that he accidentally blew a bus full of innocent civilians into the Great Beyond has given rise to an all new problem - Hell doesn't exactly have any problems with claiming his soul. But now Bill's in purgatory and he's caught the eye of heaven's warriors. He's been offered a chance to make good the havoc he wrought using his quite special skills. And with weapons of course. Bizarre weapons. Crazy weapons...

Personally, this one is the best painkiller I've played. I really enjoyed the new, bigger maps with lots of enemies to defeat, and with a huge variety of ways you can use to engage the enemy. Storyline is also good and well defined, with cool comic-like cutscenes that pretty much explain everything you're doing.

On the other hand, enemy AI isn't great, and they always try to mass attack you and eventually they always gets stupidly stuck somewhere before reaching you. Also there are some medium bugs that can prevent you from going foward on the map, but you can get over them if frustration doesn't beat you first.

Anyway if the part you enjoy the most about FPS games is the amount of enemies to kill and you like them with a little taste of horror, this one won't disapoint you for sure. It's a 6/10 for me.

The most buggy game in the series, however also the most innovative. I only recommend you purchase as part of the complete pack or while it's on sale as there's content only a fan of the series would enjoy. Large, interesting levels and new content (weapon + enemy variants) make it worth a buy, for the right price.
