Overdose is the new game in the Painkiller franchise
whose first instalment came out in 2004. Let's get straight
to the point. The game lacks a lot of narrative structure,
but then this is not the point of it. It's a pure first person,
no frills, shooter which should appeal to gamers who don't
want to mess about solving puzzles when killing things with
bigger and better guns is a great way to spend your time.

just crank it up and start killing things. However, I would
imagine that as an audience, people like myself, are a dwindling
only really problematic thing is the loading times, which
are almost long enough to allow you to make a quick cup of
tea. This is fairly unforgivable of a modern game, especially
one as simple as this.
