PAIN - PS3 Network review

Forget Jackass - if you want hilarious injuries and high-octane destruction, this is the game that gets it right

Given its $10 price tag, it's surprising just how much entertainment PAIN offers. Creative players can squeeze hours of fun out of its crotch-smashing, civilization-ruining antics, and it's perfect for blowing off steam when you've got a few minutes to kill. It's also obviously meant to be stuffed with downloadablecontent later on, meaning you'll likely have reasons to come back even after you've seen and done everything the game has to offer. The sophomoric idiocy isn't for everyone, but for what it is and what it costs, PAIN is hands-down one of the best things ever to hit the PS3.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
