User reviews for Painkiller: Overdose
6.6 / 10Combined Score
Qui bene amat, bene castigat
Painkiller Overdose was at the beginning a mod, like a Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat or Red Orchestra. Dreamcatcher was interested in it and began to pay the developers. Result is that Overdose became a stand-alone to buy. Goodbye free mod!
Overdose is released 4 years after the original Painkiller and its add-on Battle out of Hell. However, it's an error to think that Overdose is perfect for gamers. It's not a Minerva Metastatis, a great mod for HL, released also nearly four years after HL2 release.
No, Overdose is bugged and is clearly disappointing in some domains. But Overdose isn't bad. It's just that the better is the enemy of the good.
