    It´s a shame that it was rushed out early, I kinda liked the spin the guys put in with the vast, open levels instead of the small, closed areas of the previous games. If you can live with that change in gameplay and the bugs, it´s a pretty good game with damn cool comic sequences.

  1. Painkiller: Resurrection is a buggy trip into hell.
  2. The fourth part of the Painkiller series plays just like the other ones. Using weapons like the painkiller you're fighting lots of weird opponents like axe-wielding monks or pirate zombies. As usual they act dumb, there is no AI to speak of. It's a game to play casually for 30 minutes now and then and doesn't aspire to be anything else.
  3. Painkiller: Resurrection is a bugfest. It is technically outdated and the co-op mode is hidden between the menus. There is no way to make this multiplayer mode work well.
