    PK Overdose just does not have that stuff what makes the original Painkiller a superb game in it's class.

    This game looks like Painkiller and plays like Painkiller, but it is not Painkiller!

    Rated on November 07, 2007 by Warpld

    While the single play is a bit funky, the online maps kick butt!

    Rated on November 28, 2007 by 195948

    The single player maps are cool but have just a bit of a funky feel to them. Yeah I will agree, it is a bit mindless. But a great stress reliever! However the online play maps are very cool and that i...
