    They Are Kidding, Right?

    To say that this Game is not even worth buying would be an understatement. While I did enjoy the first painkiller, this Game is just all wrong. This was actually a Gaming Mod at first?(According to friends), I really wou... Read Full Review

    It deserves a better score...

    It's the struggle between good and evil and you're the good or what? You have all you've ever wanted from a shooter. Fast-pace, deformed enemies which come in waves to put you down. You have freaky sights and landscapes ... Read Full Review

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

    The developers of the game, Mindware, started out by making this game without the intension of releasing it under the ownership of the publisher, in other words, more like a mod. But in the end it turned out, than Painki... Read Full Review

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

    You know how sometimes something is just much more than the sum of its parts? That's what Dreamcatcher managed to do with its original Painkiller and suplemented it later with its magnificent expansion Battle Out of Hell... Read Full Review

    BAT OUT OF HELL...

    I really enjoyed the first Painpiller, sorry, "Painkiller" game. It was fast-paced, no real story, just FPS, nice graphics and some huge, huge foes that you could break down with your peashooter or arrow-thrower. Back in... Read Full Review

    UNLESS you lunatically love a dumba$$ shooter and the PAINKILLER series, or do not have a high end computer for games like COD4 or Gears of War, its better if you stay away from this game.And next time you go to the ga... Read Full Review

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

    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 is where the greatnes... Read Full Review
