Good franchise!Sawik94 | Oct. 28, 2014 | See all Sawik94's reviews »
Simply, oldschool, challenging game for fans of Painkiller series. As always you have to destroy demons with big guns and this make joy as always. Play and feel young again!

Still not as terrible as Resurrection, but still not much fun. Cramped levels (all of them based on multiplayer maps from older Painkiller games) with waves after waves of monsters spawning in slowly - this just gets old really fast. Still very evocative of Doom or Quake (and, indeed, the original Painkiller), but that's all it's got going for it. Play those other games instead.

For the most part painkiller games are awesome and pretty simple. You shoot, things explode and fall apart and you and up with a very satisfying face. But some of the games take that concept for granted. Much like this one. The sections are very small and the enemies that come at you is always ludicrous. The enemy types are not spawned gradually and there is not really that much ammunition for you to fight the huge hordes of enemies. It is sort of fun shooting game but nothing compared to the first.

Very clingy, and really inferior to the first installment in the series. Redemption is a dull attempt at make money of a solid franchise, and it shows: outdated visuals, frustrated gameplay, lots of bugs and an overall absence of fun. Not recommended.

I have always liked this franchise, you have loads of guns, you get waves of demons and you can shoot them into pieces. Some times it might be a little bit harder tho. It's old school enough, but the engine is not bad at all, doesn't feel old, also the graphics are more than decent! Some people say it's repetitive, yes, it is repetitive. But wasn't Serious Sam repetitive ? Or Duke Nukem? And yet there were some of the greatest games ever!
