About this product
|Painkiller is a first-person shooter set in the sinister world of gothic horror. Daniel Garner is having a bad day. On his way downtown, he dies in a car accident and is not permitted past the pearly gates. In order to get back into the Almighty's good graces, he becomes Painkiller and must mow down Satan's minions in whatever lair, tomb, or residence they may be lurking. Dressed in a black overcoat and wearing sunglasses to protect against the sun, Painkiller has earned a reputation for his no-nonsense approach to demon hunting. Yet he also hides a secret: a pact with a demon has granted him special powers at the expense of his humanity.|
Painkiller must fight his way past hordes of undead creatures in 20 levels while freeing whatever is left of their souls. With every 66 souls collected, Painkiller can transform into a ghastly creature himself, using its physical strength and ferocity to engage multiple demons at once. Players will also have at their disposal an arsenal of ranged weapons including a shotgun and the "painkiller," all of which feature primary and secondary attacks. Painkiller uses the Havok physics engine (Thief: Deadly Shadows, Deus Ex: Invisible War) for its interactive 3D environments and details such as moving clothes, rippling water, and crumbling walls. The game features seven multiplayer modes such as "Deathmatch," "Voosh," "Light Bearer," "Last Man Standing," and "Free-For-All."

Well for starters, I like to by old games, and the more odd or weird the better. This was a cool win for me, and its looks great in my collection.

Great Xbox FPS, dont listen to the skeptics!
No matter what you may think or hear about this game being "last Gen" or "not as good as Halo 2", I say who cares! This game is still a very challenging and graphically pleasant experience. I enjoyed this game for the most part, yes there are some levels that just plain sucked(First 3 levels) but it gets much better. The Bosses are just awesome in scale for the most part, not necessarily challenging or anything. If you play this game and really try to get all the Tarots and play it right, you wont be let down!<br><br>Its a great price, a wonderfully visual game and especially great if you can't afford and Xbox 360.
