Be warned this game is a fanmade product meant only for real hardcore FPSers! As I’m not one of those i had hard time to progress.
This game is the absolute opposite of the cursed Painkiller:Resurrection. Again only a few levels (6+2bonus? the boss is on the 6th) but because every of them features around a thousand enemies compressed into small areas you won’t miss action in here. Practically the levels consist of a series of survival rooms and they are hard as hell. I wasn’t able to make it through the first level on normal, had to lower the difficulty into the very lowest (no cards or souls), even if I knew i won’t see the ending not even half of it, maybe a black screen featuring a short text „You are a miserably weak player :P”. Actually i saw the ending but it’s not a big thing, this game is not about story. Furthermore I did not regret the difficulty decrease after i saw the levels after. The second level is a pain (in some dark warm smelly place), shooting enemies spawn 2-3 at a time, and every of them start with a shot, giving you no chance to beat them before they hurt you. On later levels the rooms become smaller with the same amount of enemies, sometimes i really wondered how those could be beaten normally as the real usable crowdcontrol weapons, the stakegun-grenade, the xbow-bouncies or the rocket launcher cannot be used in such claustrophobic places without seriously hurting yourself.
No new content at all, but it features most weapons and enemies from all its ancestor Painkillers. The levels seems to me as multiplayer levels recycled into a single player nightmare.
When i started I had fear what I will find after the awfull Resurrection but the game started good. Lower your expectations and forget about exploration and other nerdy things in this one, it’s mindless pure action! Think of this one as the action essence of the original game.
Later on i found it must be impossible to carry on with higher difficulties and it started to bore and annoy me. At the very end i again started to enjoy the game but i’m sure you need a special mood to find delight in this continous massacre.
4/10 - Pure extreme hard, room survival FPS action. Fun when depressed.
