10To be honest this was the first game in the painkiler franchise that I played. "oh good" I thought, I can finally see what all the fuss is about. The game is gory, fast paced, the weapons are imaginative, the levels are diverse, and the the enemies are relentless. So why does it bore me? though there are plenty of weapons and all of them with secondary fire but they're all introduced at the start and are almost identical between the two characters that you play as aside from a few. There are allot of enemies but they suffer from the rpg-issue of being reskined. There are a few enemies with special abilities but since you literally kill thousands of enemies every level you will already have them smeared across a nearby wall before they can become a real threat. The arena-like progression almost seems like a rule in the level design. They try to mix it up but every area that you fight enemies in will be in some kind of boring and wide open space. I only recommend painkiller redemption if your a hardcore fan of the series and I don't represent fans but I can't help but feel like even they might be tired of the series since there's four other expansion packs already.… Expand
8My only gripe was that being new to the series, it pretty much just tosses you in after a short text scrolling introduction to the story, and there's no tutorial. After a week, however, the company has released an update with a brief tutorial. Good job, glad to see dedication to fixes! Feels like an old DOOM 2 game, simple, pick up ammo n money, kill everything. Quite fun!… Expand
If you like games like Serious Sam, but even more chaotic this is the game for you, be ready to fight all the creature that lives in the hell !
p.s. The game is missing some story and will looks like you're grinding to get a level done but oh well, you will have no time to think to the story while playing lol.… Expand
This last installment of the PK franchise does surpass previous ones, but it is still far away from the original. You will find yourself fighting endless waves of dozens of simultaneous enemies in small cramped spaces, usually for as long as 10 minutes, then you move to the next room, rinse and repeat, more like a Serious Sam approach if you tell me. The maps are dull, in fact they are recycled deathmatch arenas from previous PK games and somewhat adapted for SP play. To summarize, if you are a true vanilla PK fan, you should still avoid this like hell, and only the bargain bin price mark saves this from being utter rubbish. The devs also promise future free DLC as well as coop implementation, if they get the coop going, this might be worth rechecking.… Expand
