solidocelot's PAIN (PlayStation Network (PS3)) review


Pain is a very... incomplete game, Pain seems like its missing alotta things, almost immedaitly after booting up the game it seems like  the developers purposly left thinds out ranging from everything from, characters too entire levels, obviously with the intention of releasing more stuff for DLC making this games initial price point (9.99) a little steep. And with all the incoming DLC in the form of unlockable characters, new locations, and modes this game could prove to become very expensive.

Though Pain is initally lacking in overall content like i said, the game has some surprising depth and addictive gameplay. It starts off simple enough you launch a dude across the map hitting as many things in sequence to build up a chain, and causing as much destruction as possible. Though as you play more the game starts opening up modes (including spank the monkey which unfortunatly or fortunatly isnt what it sounds like) and introduces new rules and objectves. All in all you will quickly become addicted to finding all the horrible ways to hurt your poor (crotch quenching) character, and trying to find all the secret passages way to fling your flinging character.

FINAL VERDICT: Pain is pretty pricey at 9.99 especially with so many things delibritly left out only for you to later have to buy to extend the life of the game, but the addictive nature and graphically pleasing but not astounding technial aspects are a plus. So if you dont mind spending the $10 on a fairly incomplete package then go fling your character into as many mokeys as you can find.

    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...
