    The best $20 computer game we've ever played.
  2. The most fun I have had in a straight shoot'em up FPS in a hell of a long time.

    Brainless running and gunning is an underappreciated way to waste a couple of hours with a great-looking game. [Feb 2003, p.94]

    If you like mindlessly shooting things (like me), buy this game! Well worth the bang!
  5. Plays a lot like "Doom," but with more enemies. Way more. Like, the most EVER. And they just keep coming and coming, like roaches to a donut.
  6. Just firing this beast up, and blasting some bad guys without a care in the world feels very refreshing.
  7. I had pretty high hopes for the title, and ultimately, I was let down more than a kid who got socks and underwear for Christmas. If you're in the market for an FPS game, go pick up "Painkiller." Same type of gameplay, much less headaches. [June 2004]

    The levels look gorgeous,with beautiful soundtrack while killing all those aliens.
    Also Sam with his one liners never gets old.

    Классическое мясо в стиле первых игр от ID. Отличный спинномозговой шутер где нужно метко стрелять и ловко стрейфиться.Классическое мясо в стиле первых игр от ID. Отличный спинномозговой шутер где нужно метко стрелять и ловко стрейфиться.
