I've been thinking of picking this game up, but from what I read it is all run and gun steady straight forward action. I kind of like to check out the graphics or the scenery a bit to. Any comments?

I thought it was fun and the graphics were pretty good. It is pretty much a run and gun game though but that was fine with me.

One of my favorite games for sure. sure it's run and gun. But your running and gunning like 300 guys per level. Soooo much fun. It gets insane once you do it on the harder levels....

I had a blast with PK, think of Doom classic with updated graphics and an attempt at a story line. :p It was good times.

It's one hell of a game.

Graphics and levels look amazing, especially with some 16AA/16AF added.

You need to shoot the bubbles in the mud as he walks over them. They will then explode, causing him to solidify for a brief time. You can then kill him.

If you like serious sam, you'll like PK. I'm not sure if PK has coop but SS2 coop is retarded fun.

Painkiller is excellent! Painkiller + BOOH expansion + SM3/HDR patch = :drooling: The visuals are still impressive today and the gameplay is simple, straightforward but fun action.

Where do we get the SM3.0 patch? I just installed BOOH and it's only got Bloom :(

The 1.61 and upwards patches were unified patches for both the original Painkiller and/or the BOOH expansion. After I applied that patch I was able to select the SM3 rendering path in the settings menu. Im not fully certain if it was "true" HDR (FP16) or whatever but it certainly looked very nice and was definitly an improvement from the previously more static (but still nice) lighting.
