Editors' Review

Denied entrance to heaven, you must battle hordes of undead warriors to save the world while discovering the mystery of your own destiny. Although Painkiller definitely has an old-school vibe reminiscent of Wolfenstein or Doom, the detailed graphics and advanced physics engine are anything but. Three levels from the single-player game offer loads of supernatural first-person-shooter fun.

The demo offers three of five possible weapons from the full game, each of which has two types of attack. Collecting the souls of the slain undead boosts your health, while tarot cards give your character special fighting or protection abilities. The 3D environments are gorgeous, with details and explosions that contribute to the nightmarish scenario.

One downside of the demo is that it lacks save functionality, although once you pass a level, you can restart at the next. The most difficult gameplay setting, Trauma, is also not available. Although the game is still in development, movement and hit detection could definitely be improved--jumping is difficult to control, and enemies sometimes cause damage even though they obviously miss. These are all minor quibbles, and we highly recommended the demo to any fans of first-person shooters whose systems meet the minimum requirements.

"Buy the game & the Expansion Pack"

June 03, 2005  |  By casper75

Pros

I have never done a game review before so here I go Painkiller would have to be one of the best games out there from the very beginning you are thrown into one hell of a challenge, I have played Far Cry & the Half Life series & both those games are what I would call slow starters. The Graphics in Painkiller are just as good as Far Cry & the Half Life series & the sound is very real as well the first time I started playing I had chills down my spine, You have a large selection of weapons which you will need to defend yourself from all types of monsters within the game. For people who are new to this game there is an expansion pack available however you will need to download a few patches to make it run the Patches you need are:

Painkiller patch 1.61, File Size 338MB

Painkiller update 1.62, File Size 108MB

Pk162_164patch File Size 6.36MB

All are exe files

If you have a fast internet connection these file will be easy to download

Cons

No problems with this game however You must have files listed above to run the expansion pack.

"Awesome"

Summary

whoever said they played this with lag on a 3.2 htt is either insane or lying on what pc they have. I can run this fine on an 800mhz with 384 ram pentium 3 with a mx440 card. On my new pc - 2.8 prescott, radeon 9800 pro and a gig of ram, i can play it on very high 1600x1200. it is great looking and the physics are so much fun to play with. it is definitely worth the download.

Summary

This game gives you nonstop action. Its an undead slaughter fest, you get a Wooden Steak/Grenade launcher in the beginning and your primary weapon is a crazy Grinder/Laser beam grappling weapon. So if you like great graphics, lots of blood, nonstop action, and insane weapons DOWNLOAD THIS GAME!
