Reviews for Painkiller Resurrection [Legacy]


An other clone of the first Painkiller

Painkiller Resurrection has the same defect of all Painkiller sequels: it's a copy of the first title, with the same weapons, the same gameplay and the same enemies. I really like Painkiller, but when I took this new game of the series I expected to find the same gameplay with some new features or original element that make the experience a little different. If you are a fan of FPS and in particular of Painkiller, you will find Resurrection really disappointing


Not good even for the fans :(

It should not see the light of the sun. It should forever stay in the darkness of hell. The game is so full of bugs and so full of boring long levels (where you do not know where to go) that I cannot recommend Resurrection even for the most devoted fans. I cannot recall when was the last time I played on God mode. This game made me do this. The only good thing about it is the music. Get the soundtrack and leave it. Level design is quite interesting as well but is not playable - your character will get stuck at least 5 times for a level. The same goes for the monsters with very poor AI. The new monsters (especially red gorillas with their shouts) will get on your nerves so much that you will not want to kill them, you will want to kill the game developers. One does not simply destroy the Painkiller series with such a 'game'. You could think that shooting can be fun even with bugs and little gameplay value but not here. Better install Black Edition or Overdose and actually enjoy yourself. Here only torture awaits you. Oh, there is a coop mode but I could not find a person to share the pain with...
