PowerMad Review of PAIN for the PlayStation 3 Console
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:
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.

Very nice and down-to-earth narrative on the video review CyanCaze (even with the cheapie mic you mentioned you were stuck using ) so first of all +Rep!
You presented your opinion well, weighed cost versus entertainment value, and even provided viable alternate options for 'casual' gamers who may have been considering PAIN... which, ended up being PAIN-fully redundant even when watching the action in the video.
I must say you admitted you were bored with it after 30 minutes... I have not played it myself, but upon watching the video I think I'd have only given it 10-15 minutes before I would start wondering if there isn't something else I could be spending my time playing.
In any case, nice first video review! I added it to the Reviews archive, and also if you use the Contact Us form to mail me your PayPal address I will drop ya $20 this weekend for your time and effort in doing the review as I hinted in the past.
This review is the worst review in history. First off you really need to learn how to speak. Second this review is so bias that it is not even funny. This game is great for about 2 weeks not 30 min. Yeah it gets repetitive but that's what this game is all about. Also if you do a game review please do it when the game comes out not a year later. But my advice to you is and I beg you please for the love of god do not record your voice any more. It is annoying and it makes me want to kill someone.

@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!
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.
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.
I think Pain is a good game. Ok, 1 level isnīt much but the only thing i really miss in Pain is to play it online. That would be great imo.
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.
