Yay! Another Dave Quick Look!

Posted by snide

Just a quick correction. There is no "fear of bears" level. The third level, which is fear of machinery, has some enemies that look like mechanized bears though. Had a moment of memory loss there in the quick look. 
 
In any case I played a lot more of this game over the weekend (for what reason I can't rightly say) and can verify that the game continues to be well... not good. There's three big problems. 

  1. The weapons do horrible damage and even though you'll get some new ones in later levels the minigun/rocket combo continues to be your best option. With the minigun part doing very little damage it means you mostly end up just running around levels waiting for your rocket launcher to reload.
  2. The enemy variation per level is slim. You'll usually only see 3-4 new enemies of the same theme each level and they act pretty much the same across the board.
  3. Starting wit the second level the game introduces an Ikagura style on/off parallel world where you have to jump through portals just to kill enemies of that type. While I could see some people get excited about Ikagura as an FPS, believe me... it is extremely frustrating.

Heh, this isn't "I Love Mondays" but I'll take it!

Man I admire your resilience Dave, did you finish Dragon Age already that you actually went and played THIS?

Posted by FlamingHobo

It's awesome that we've got another Dave, Quick Look! It's a shame about the game though.

@Sarumarine: I Love Mondays will be soon :)

fear of bears lol

I hope there is a Dreamkiller: Maury Povich Talk Show Strange Phobias Expansion Pack where you have to go into the dreams of people who are scared of balloons, pickles and Saran Wrap.

jesus dave, turn down the sensitivity, you're making me nauseous! 
 
And i'm getting like, an early-doom3-build kind of vibe from this. Its bizarre..

Posted by lolgreg

Yeah this game looks awful.

@snide: Sorry Dave but it looks like Jeff duped you into buying this. The original developers of Painkiller ( People can Fly) are now part of Epic Games and Mindware's only real claim to fame is making a largely underpar expansion to that game.
 
BTW did you feel nauseated after playing this for a while ? Because I was feeling pretty sick after watching the quick look. I don't know what it was because I'm used to playing fast paced shooters. :/

@Darkstar614: Sorry, I'm from the Quake school of sensitivity, where you can never move too fast :)

Is there a 'fear of bad games' level?

Posted by ToxicFruit

I loved painkiller but i see no reason for me to buy this game...

Edited by dagas

Alice Drake. Reminds me of Alex Drake in the British television show Ashes to Ashes. 
 
I wonder how my level would be like since I've got aquaphobia. It's pretty much my only phobia. I can barely play submarine games because when I see the ships sink after I torpedo them I almost panic out of fear (like in Silent Hunter 3/4 when the camera follows the ship down into the dark abyss). Also if I fall down into the water in BF1942 (not that I've played that in years) I have to climb up the net to the carrier as fats as possible or I get quite scared. It seems stupid when I think about it.

I totally agree with the Doom3 vibe to this, to be honest it doesn't make me want to rush out and purchase it looks kind of bland, and the best thing I seen in this QL was the fancy high budget cinematic!

Yeah i wanted to say that too, because Painkiller was fucking awesome, and this is clearly not. Darkest of Days is better than this...and im being dead serious!
 
But it does have chaingun/rocket and shotgun/ice gun combo's from Painkiller...oddly enough
Posted by Scooper

Ahh.. Too much mouse sensativity going crazy all over the screen. Could barely tell what was happening.

Posted by Darkstar614

I miss old-school Quake...
 
also an odd name for the Main Character..

"My name is Alan Wake.. I came here-- I MEAN Alice Drake!"

Posted by MattBodega

Man, That is the saddest minigun I've ever seen. You would think, if this developer had worked on the Painkiller franchise, they would have learned a thing or two about making weapons seem ridiculous and awesome. That game also had the missile launcher/chaingun, but it was totally BRUTAl and fun to use.

Posted by Aishan

I can't believe there's a 360 version of this too; I guess the makers of crappy budget FPS games felt like they needed to branch out and inflict their creations on the rest of the gaming world.

Posted by DukesT3

I hate spiders too.. a lot.. they all should die but for some god awful reason.. they must live in order for the world to work.. damn ecosystem.. 

Posted by nrain

yer, so this game looks kinda bad.
Posted by Johanz
The sensitivity is so high that the crosshairmovement isn't smooth, it just jumps, man, that's high sensitvity! :P I'm used to having it all super smooth and soft, that's nice. Makes sniping easier for me too!
 
But yeah, I'd think I'd stick with Painkiller rather than buy this. Seems like the original Painkiller devs went to Epic according to a comment and it kinda shows, not much like Painkiller at all, rather than monsters and guns. :P
Posted by handlas

well....I played some of Painkiller but this game looks like a major step down in quality.

Posted by Almeida69

BAD GAME! VERY VERY BAD GAME!

Posted by jim_dandy

Sing more Dave. XD

Posted by BoOzak

This looks terrible ;S I'm glad Mindware arent destroying the painkiller franshise more than they already have (i believe another company has picked up that licence so that responsibility falls to them) What the hell happend to "People Can Fly" (the devs behind the original, decent Painkiller) i know they worked on the pc port for Gears of War but they've gone off the radar since then which sucks if crappy developers like Mindware are still able produce games but they cant...

Posted by PJ

This game looks incredebly bad. I couldnt even watche the whole QL because I got so god damn bored. Never happened before. Not even whit Darkest of Days

Posted by Moztacular

this game looks like shit!

Edited by bulldog300

wow this game was frustrating to watch someone else play. I can't imagine how monotonous it is to handle.

Posted by Laticsfan

Seems like a good idea for a game, but very poorly executed.

Posted by piderman

I'm sure people have said this, but it's important to repeat: this is *not* by the Painkiller devs, it's made by Mindware who made the *third* expansion for said game :)

Edited by Xymox

Jup, seems like an interesting idea, but poorly executed

Posted by noriegga

sadly I will probably play this for achievements

Posted by Reverseface

ARE YOU IN A ICE RINK?
Posted by Vod_Crack

Painkiller was awesome
Painkiller Overdose sucked
This also sucks. Typical.

Posted by Linkyshinks

This game looks like shite.

Posted by Aeterna

God dave, please lower the mouse sense for quick looks, this really isn't fun to watch with the mouse all over the place. 
 
I get it, you're a high senser but.. man.

I got reminded of that aswell, except that is excellent  and Dream Killer is not.
Posted by ITSSEXYTIME

I think it's ridiculous to criticize them for having the spiders appear out of the ground when half life 2 did it with antlions, albeit a more detailed animation.
