I picked up this game on sale for about 70 cents, mainly because its the only one i could find at that price for my leftover cash. about a week after buying it, i decided to give it a try. Expecting a stupid, glitchy fps, i was surprised. The game is actually pretty fun. you have 5-6 different weapons to mow down thousands of creatures charging at you. It is really freaking satisfying to cut down a herd of 30 demons with a laser fired from a skull. I haven't really figured out much how you progress yet, but just mow down enough demons and the next door will open. If this game is on sale pick it up, and consider buying it even if it isnt. good game to buy with your leftover cash.

No, no and once again: !!! NO !!! This is clearly the worst painkiller game ever made, maybe even worst FPS shooter ever made.. This game si a big insult to a painkiller series.. First of all, theres is nothing new, absolutely nothing new.. AH SORRY I FORGOT RESKINED MENU.. otherwise nothing new.. Every single monster you see could have been seen in previous painkiller games and they didnt even tried to make some kind of reskin.. OH I FORGOT THAT THEY MADE THE GIANT SKELETONS A 0,001FT. TALLER.. otherwise nothing.. Same with weapons, there is also one annoying thing about them, you have all weapons from the start, so u cant experience that kind of feeling when you say to yourself: "ahh I found a new weapon, well let´s see what it does".. The game just simply tells you: U CAN CHANGE YOUR WEAPONS BY PRESSING 1,2,3,4,5,6.. DONT YOU DARE EXPECT FROM US THAT YOULL FIND SOME NEW WEAPON DURING YOUR WAY.. levels are the only new thing, but as a only new thing which was truly made by developers which made this game (previous game had different developers), its extremely frustrating, unoriginal and stereothype, for example: "HMM LETS NAME THIS LEVEL "SPIKES" BECAUSE IN THE FIRST ROOM THERE ARE SOME SPIKE PLATFORM HANGING ON THE CEILLING.. if u expected some level in which youll have to avoid spikes or use them to kill enemies, then youre ♥♥♥♥ed up in the face by this ♥♥♥♥, because its just simple unoriginal castle/cathedral like level which you have seen a tons of times already.. the levels by the way are long, but no no no no, wait, stop thinking about it.. they arent long, because there are tons of rooms to explore, non-linear path or something like that.. no, the think is, that the developers thought, that the games which were created before had a low number of monsters.. so they added 10, NO, 100, NO, 500, NO, 1.000 HELL YEAAAH, ONE ♥♥♥♥ING THOUSAND OF MONSTERS PER LEVEL.. and I only played first level, god helps the players who made it through the first level, and they are experiencing 10.000 thousand enemies.. its extremely frustrating, if level without the monsters has only 5 minutes playthrough, while with them, its playthrough is like 40 minutes, 2 hours if u play on harder difficulty, because guess what ? every ♥♥♥♥ing arena has like 150 monsters inside it, but dont be fooled, they arent there right at the time when you step in, they teleport to the arena by one, so its extremely annoying to wait for them to spawn.. but thats not all of course, if u die during the fight, you can freely start all over again, because there are no checkpoints during the fight, only at its start and end.. and the story.. thats the most laughable thing.. I can only say, that at the end of this game (I played this game once already, but when i was younger so I remembered the end), there is the totally same boss, which is at the end of painkiller battle out of hell, only this time you dont need to use some special strategy, because guess what ? SPECIAL STRATEGIES ON BOSSES ARE LAME, LETS SHOOT DAT THING MUHAHAHAHAHAAH, ye funny ♥♥♥♥ing developers.. the most funny thing althrough is, that this boss should represent the Eve, who took the Lucifers powers and became the ruler of hell.. so, you are trying to tell me that if you take lucifers powers and you are ♥♥♥♥ing woman, then you turn into exactly same demon who had the power before ??? why lucifer didnt looked like ♥♥♥♥ing Alastor when he ruled the hell then ??? ♥♥♥♥ty game, what can I say, ressurection was totally bugged, but at least it was fun to experience all those bugs and at least it didnt give you all weapons from the start and the fights werent frustrating and never ending.. This ♥♥♥♥ ? I played it 25 minutes and im asking myself how could i finish this game before ? Impossible.. I was bored to death and didnt even finished the first level, because i died in the middle of fight and you know what, i dont wanna kill that 200 monster all over again.. so 0/10, no, -1/10 from me, hope this game gets deleted from steam soon.. no, not just from steam, from the universe !

Not as bad as ressurection . . . but it feels bland. Tiny rooms and hundreads of demons to slay . . . you morph into demon for every 5 seconds after a morph finishes . . . that's how many demons you kill . . . .

Can't recommend it at full price but at half price it looks decent enough if your one who likes this kind of games.

Got this game from a friend of mine. Played it for like 15 minutes, and all I did was killing creatures... I don't understand the meaning of the game. Would not recommend it.

This game is a very fun game to mow down creatures, it is fun if you like violent and fps shooters, dont underestimate this game like i did. When i first played it i made fun of it and now I enjoy ad love the game. To be honest i got it for $0.66 it was worth, i would say if you are bored it is a good game to buy for $5.00, so that is my response!

Bloody fun! A game that doesnt require a story line to have fun. The game drops you right into the heart of battle with about 8 intresting weapons that would strike fear into the enemies, if they had ones or were alive. 10/10 I recommend this game

Compared to Resurrection it is a masterpiece! Took me 4 hours on normal difficulty level to complete it. On a sale for 1,25 € it is a good choice.

On the positive side: It's not Painkiller: Ressurection. This is to say it's a stable game that will launch, run, load, and not crash every ten minutes.

On the negative side: everything else. It's the ultimate in shooting the same damn enemy over and over and over again in a small featureless square room simulator.

There's almost nothing to do here. No atmosphere, no new weapons, no new enemies, no new maps (they're all just multiplayer maps very, VERY poorly turned into single player maps). What little story there ever was in the painkiller series is gone. There's no voice acting to speak of. The uber obnoxious "HUH" noise the character makes when he jumps has been mysteriously re-added, for some reason, which was the sole saving grace of Redemption that they took that out.

There's nobody playing on the multiplayer servers. The tarot cards are all so impossibly hard to get that I can assure you with 99 percent confidence you'll never see a single one except the first one. Play the game on insomniac difficulty and you'll be dead three rooms in, play it on Slumber or Daydream and you can't get souls or cards, taking essentially the only reason to play the game away from the game.

Each level is the same: Spawn in a room, literally hundreds of enemies spawn with the developer having payed no mind as to the location or quantity or even model of the spawning enemies. they just CTRL+V'd the entire game. Enemies spawn on top of each other, enemies spawn on top of you, right next to you, etc. Then you shoot them. Then you go to the next room after living through ten or so waves of enemies.

Yes, ten waves of enemies per room. There's no alternative rooms, no exploration, the secrets are all just ♥♥♥♥ easy to find because the game is soley multiplayer maps. There's nothing here. It's five dollars you would be better off buying almost anything else with.

I'd almost recommend it just to see how lazy a game can get. That said, Recurring Evil exists sooooo yeah.

Still not as terrible as Resurrection, but still not much fun. Cramped levels (all of them based on multiplayer maps from older Painkiller games) with waves after waves of monsters spawning in slowly - this just gets old really fast. Still very evocative of Doom or Quake (and, indeed, the original Painkiller), but that's all it's got going for it. Play those other games instead.

Hold MOUSE1, tap SPACE, WASD.
A mindless, point-and-click arena based first person shooter.
Fan/community made "mod" worth roughly four hours of gameplay, if you don't fall asleep from the repetitiveness of it all before then.

It goes like this:
You enter an area, pick up some ammo, and kill endless waves of monsters coming at you.
Advance to the next area and repeat.

The size of said battle areas had me feeling a bit claustrophobic at first, but towards the end of the game they seemed to expand, allowing for better mobility (similar to every other Painkiller title, this game wants you to bunnyhop everywhere).
The monsters you fight are nothing new - all have been seen in the earlier games. Same goes for the weapons.
Nothing wrong with them, just nothing new.


The final boss was a joke.
I would only recommend this game to players who have already finished 'Black Edition' and 'Overdose', which are much much better games.

First of let me say I liked the painkiller games,but this one is just too bad.
The plot of this game that you enter a room and kill hundreds of demons just to enter another room and kill more demons.
The game itself is great since it is violent and brutal but the game doesn't offer much else.
Sure you can still see a lot of blood and body parts but that's about it.
I could still reccomend this to a fan of the painkiller series.
