330w 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.

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).

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.

@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.

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.

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.

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.

Alright will do. It may be a few days before I can get to it. Today is my dads birthday and the last day I work at my second job is Sunday. So it will probable Monday or Tuesday when I can email you.
