    Nice graphics boring gameplay killing few thousands of already dead guys isn't very fun.I like the weapons trough they are the same from the original painkiller just under other skin with some new additions.The backdraw of the game:The long,very long.excruciating long loading time almost 10 minutes.The only thing that might make you wana play the same level again is the tarot card you getNice graphics boring gameplay killing few thousands of already dead guys isn't very fun.I like the weapons trough they are the same from the original painkiller just under other skin with some new additions.The backdraw of the game:The long,very long.excruciating long loading time almost 10 minutes.The only thing that might make you wana play the same level again is the tarot card you get after finishing a level.I like the boss battles but in rest is pretty boring just the locations are varied.The enemies are not 40 types how it might look but just 4 types.They all want the same and do the same.tones of insignificant AI which comes in front and try to crack open youre skull.I got one!!!

    I loved it! Pure, unadulterated fun. Enough said. I would definitely recommend it to those who liked the first two games.

    Je pense qu'il faut apprécier le jeu original pour apprécier ce deuxième opus.
    Si c'est le cas, nous pouvons être comblé par la richesse des niveaux désormais, davantage de dirigisme certes dans l'utilisation des armes pour certains endroits, et le risque donc de se retrouver à court de munitions si l'on en a fait

    Dispite what others have said, I liked this a lot. Sure it's different in many ways from the original but hey, the differences make for a cool game. The nitpicking is just that. nit nit nit pick pick pick. Go blow away and stop playing it then. I liked the music, I liked the new weapons and cool new creatures and excellently rendered levels.

    This game surprised me! It's a LOT more fun than many A list games. Sure there's no AI and the graphics are dated, but it makes up for it with TONS of different enemies, many of them very funny (killer chickens, cows, wheelchair bound old coots). Also the weapons have a very satisfying feel. Many games are starting to feel a lot like WORK these days (Fallout 3), and this This game surprised me! It's a LOT more fun than many A list games.

    Very entertaining, compared with the other Painkillers. This one actually had a story line that I could follow and I loved the new choices in weapons.

  1. Everything, and I mean everything, from the ammo pickups littering the ground, to the lack of weapon reloading, to the super speed in which your character moves, to the silly side comments he’s always making, to the general lack of story, and even the random level themes make this feel like a freeware game I would have stayed after school to play in the computer lab.
  2. What the game does it does with style and flair. There are a lot of fine touches and little details which make the experience so much more fulfilling, unless you have a weak stomach.
  3. This stand-alone Painkiller expansion is pure, stupid fun, despite slow loads and an utter lack of innovation.
