Pain is not a game that you spent hours and hours perfecting your skill on, nor is does it have a plot, endearing characters, or a final boss. However, Pain is a pretty good game regardless of all that stuff, because it takes one concept – causing massive carnage – and executes it very well. You’ll be using a cartoon-like elastic catapult to launch humans into a world of hurt, and that’s about all you’ll be doing. Really, Pain is more of like a sandbox toy than a full ahead game. If you’re in th...2 out of 2 found this review helpful.
Pain is my first taste of a PSN Exclusive game, having recently gained access to a PS3. It really isn't a bad game, to be honest. It is very easy to pick up and play, yet is complex enough to warrant me coming back to it once in a while.

Yep, I was HUGE into games with physics back then, especially games that used Havok, but as fun as it was watching John-117 ricochet spectacularly between sharp rocks off the side of a cliff, none of those games really captured what...0 out of 0 found this review helpful.
Shooting people out of a slingshot is great fun and never seems to get old. Part of that might be due to all of the modes available to keep things interesting.

There is also a free update that adds Fun with Explosives. All these modes also have several levels of difficulty that can be quite challenging to keep you interested as well. ...0 out of 0 found this review helpful.
