PowerMad Review of PAIN for the PlayStation 3 Console


Sponsored Links
291w ago - Pain for the PlayStation 3 gaming console is quite the unique game. However I don't feel it's up to par with some of the other games on the PlayStation Network store.

The main problem I have with the game is the fact that although the game is $10 in the U.S. they only give you 1 level to start with. This bugs me as a gamer because I believe for $10 I should get a little bigger game for what I paid for it.

My second complaint is about the game play. Although is really fun when you have a few buddies over for a beer, it just seems repetitive after time. Granted the 2 player is cool, it doesn't make up for the short comings of the 1 player.

Although you can buy add-on levels, I don't believe they are worth their price. Abusement park is almost the exact same thing as d-town.





Movie studio is a little bit better about this, but like the other levels it just becomes repetitive.

Honestly, other then the 2 player I can't find anything I like about PAIN. I'm sorry to those of you who like the game, but I just can't recommend a game to someone that I don't like.

Recommendations and Ratings:

Recommended to...
Hardcore?: No.
Pro?: No.
Casual?: Yes.
Noob?: Maybe.
Retro?: No

Rating...

Value: F 0-10

In terms of being unique, PAIN is great. Although I didn't like it, if you get a chance to try it I would. As I said some people love it and some people don't. So that leaves me with a A+++ and a 8-10 only in terms of being Unique.

I had to look up what type of genre it was, and Wikipedia said action game. So if I'm incorrect I apologize, however I don't think the action in this game is very good. I think the game is very cartoony which is good for the type of game it is, but it takes away some points from the action. So C and a 3-10.

Overall there isn't much I can say about pain... It's a short game, I don't really like it, and I gave my opinion. It's just a OK type of game, so 32-100.

Nice review. I agree with most of your points. I played the game until I beat all the challenges. This took me about two weeks since I don't play a lot. This game is always a favorite with friends who just want something easy and fun to play. If you got all the add-ons with this game for $10 it would be well worth it. I would agree that if you got half the characters and all the level add-ons for $10-$15 it would be worth it. But I think that paying $27 for all the stuff I just mentioned is absurd. (That was including character costs).

My thoughts exactly.. we don't see RandaII doing a review, and for what it's worth if he wants 0-day games reviewed why doesn't he pay for them and CyanCaze will be happy to review them I'm sure.

In any case, -Rep to him and since it was his first post he likely registered only to flame... meaning if his second post is more of the same it will be his last one in our community. Indeed I would be happy to review games ahead of time.

And I believe you are correct, I don't understand some people. I can accept that people will disagree with me, but the flamers I will never understand.

At any rate I don't let them get to me. I use to make horrible videos on my other accounts, and in time I have gotten a slight bit better. When I made those videos I was 13 lol.

I think Pain is a good game. Ok, 1 level isn't much but the only thing i really miss in Pain is to play it online. That would be great imo.

@Cyan your review was great, i am impressed!!!!

@Randa, however i am not impressed with your post. He sounded great in the review, you should try to be a bit more mature in the future and think before you post. And if you really feel like killing someone...well i wont even go there...

Again @Cyan...very nice..hope to see more!


peace Thank Idone, hopefully I will continue to impress you all.

To the guy that said reviews should come out when the games come out the answer is yes and no. This reviews are made by normal people and give valid points as to why they review or rate the game, its helpful to us that even a year later havent bought it and maybe were planning on doing so. Yes the only reason I was able to review pain was because of the movie studio add-on I bought, and It's a under reviewed game.
