Games I Own: Painkiller

Painkiller is a game about frenzy, about being 'in the zone' and about bunny-hopping at 100 miles an hour around gothic castles packed with skeletons and cackling witches. It's a game about violence and speed; the satisfying buzz of a well-executed headshot performed from the hip...

Loved that game; the stake gun is one of the best FPS weapons ever created.

The semi naked angel was hot. The game was great and the level with the monastery was breathtaking.

Had it on pre order way back.

Pretty good game for its day, with a great mix of enemies and huge level bosses.

How could anyone not like a game with enemies called Sado Commandos? Kitted out in S &M gear complete with gimp masks and chokers in their mouths they dual wield submachine guns. ..So Joe tells me

joking - about him telling me, tho the Sado Commandos part is true.

Painkiller was an excellent game and the tarot cards made some of the challenges that bit more worthwhile. Killing the hammer weilding daemon in less than 90 seconds was impossible without one or two of them. Loved it, might re-install it actually.

"They don't make FPS's like this anymore."

I feel the action FPS (Quake 3, Painkiller, UT ) are all but dead, with the preference for realism / achievements / unlocking guns / 1 shot kills / "hardcode modes" / Vehicles / camping / over long cut scenes..

Stick me in an arena, spawn a load of weapons, give us a load of players and lets fight.

Just for fun - if you finish the game on the hardest difficulty you'll see the "true" ending.

My brother got it free with a GFX card way back when. I played it and found it a little bit boring to be honest.

I never got round to playing this. I played the demo and thought it was pretty damn good fun. I think the more recent example of this type of game is Bulletstorm, which tbh was a good blast from start to finish - some of the set pieces were amazing.

Unsurprising given they were both made by People Can Fly!

Great little game, I even enjoyed the story. Although the penultimate boss bugged out on me and I missed four fiths of the battle. Didn't realise until months later replaying it.

It also wins the award for "best depiction of Hell" in the final level.

This is precisely why I like HL2DM so much - one arena, some players, and fight.

I'm going to give the Painkiller SP demo a bash.

True but in HL2DM you can chuck a toilet at your mate which elevates it beyond simple arena DM's!
