  1. The Amusement Park expansion helps elevate PAIN into the category of must-own PlayStation Network titles alongside the likes of Super Stardust HD and PixelJunk Monsters.
  2. Amusement Park is a great addition to the game, it's priced fairly, and fans will no doubt get a kick out of the new and chaotic environment
  3. The Amusement Park expansion pack for PAIN feels more like a sequel than an expansion, as it somehow manages to include more content than the original game.
  4. It’s not a bad expansion but it could have been better. I found the park to be too small and compact. It was way too easy to explore the entire park in just a few hours leaving me with nothing to do but exploit the marvelous physics engine and try to find the unexpected.
  5. After all the expectation that was built up over the course of a year waiting, this just plays a lot like the same old PAIN.
  6. PAIN fans that found the Downtown level a bit lacking would definitely be doing themselves a favor by downloading this new level, though those that weren’t convinced by the original’s package will not find anything in the Amusement Park that merit the $16 purchase of both parts of PAIN.
  7. 70
    Abusement Park adds a new fleshed out area (plus a developer area to the public in the form of the Painlabs), a number of new characters and additional ways to damage your stuntmen and women. However, many of the issues that complicated the title return to mess up the title again.
  8. Amusement Park's environment is more fun than the original one in Pain, but it should be giving you more for your money.

    great game....if you're half retarded and can enjoy playing a game longer than the 30 minutes of fun that this game limits itself to granting. Too much of the same...a gimmick to say the least...buy something with merit and purpose. Like i said, if you're simple and dumb enough to enjoy slinging an animated ragdall around a small 3-D environment for hours on end watching it groan and scream...then get it.... Full Review »

    For a while, it seemed Idol Minds might never release this expansion, but when they did, they not only eclipsed the fun of the original title's Downtown area, but ushered in a number of hilarious new game modes, as well. As icing on the cake, they simultaneously released 3 must-have characters and included TROPHIES too. Bravo, Idol Minds, for keeping PAIN fresh, and one of the most original and challenging PSN games to date. Full Review »
