    Unbelievably bad....words can't describe how disappointed I was at this mindless, multiple enemy overkill FPS. The game itself ran fast, but the poor graphics and detail likely helped this along. The level design was sub-par and it felt like the game took place in that "maze" screensaver for PC's. Possibly the worst FPS I have played. Full Review »

    Painkiller: Hell Wars is clearly a game designed for a multiplayer experience. Every single level in the game has a "no escape" feel to it... great for deathmatch, but gets old extremely fast in single-player. The gameplay is very tight, but I'd like to see a lot more variety here. It's basically Doom For Dummies. Full Review »

    If you want a really boring and bland shooter pick this up, very repetitive and mindless. i thought Darkwatch was a lot better at least more interesting. Full Review »
