Hey, they only missed their original date by one and a half year. Give them some slack. :P

I just played a while and the game indeed runs pretty good. I'm running it at 1440x900 on Very High settings and manually disabled motion blur (which I cannot stand and also improves the performance a bit) and it definitely performs quite well. I don't have exact numbers, though, but it seems to be at least something around 30–40 fps.

Yeah, most of the game seems to run fine for me except for the intro area to the "Orphanage" in the latter half of the game (I think of it as the Asylum) where the frame rate seems to halve for me. But the rest of the game seems to have a higher overall frame rate.

Once I get into the orphanage the frame rate is OK again.

Also, the swamp boss had OK performance as well.

In Painkiller Black that level was actually part of the DLC add-on episode "battle out of hell".

BTW, to be a little more specific about how some levels looked better in Painkiller Black.. in the train station for example Painkiller H&D lacks some of the glass effects that Painkiler Black had in the area that looks like ticket booths.

https://dl.dropboxus...ller/PKB_58.jpg <-somehow they neglected to replicate stuff like this

same windows in Painkiller H&D: https://dl.dropboxus...ler/PKHD_01.png

(They also don't shatter as well in Painkiller H&D) They lack the refraction shader and aren't as high res despite me having the settings on very high.

The swamp boss had better liquid looking effects in Painkiller Black in my opinion... although the level had better lighting in Painkiller H&D.

Also, there seems to be less ragdoll effects in the levels in Painkiller H&D. There seems to be relatively less enemy types in it and others that are included such as orphans and mini skeletons are reused more.

Lastly, like I said before.. Painkiller H&D is an abridged version of Painkiller Black such that it has quite a few less levels including the entire military base section.

Still for $4 it's not bad especially since it does look better in quite a few areas objectively speaking. I can just tell that most of the content was recycled though with some spit shine added to it.

Someone who insists on having as many hours as possible in a game might be well served getting Painkiller Triple Dose from Amazon and installing both games in Wine or Crossover or whatever floats your boat. Even if you get the DLC for H&D it doesn't hold a candle to how much content there is there. :)

For the same price until Friday, you can get almost everything Painkiller from Steam with the Complete Pack on sale at -80%:

You just need to add $2 for the Collector's Edition upgrade if you want to have it all: http://store.steampo....com/sub/18606/

I have it too. ;)

Thanks for the info. Looks like the DLC "zombie bunker" might have those levels I was missing from Painkiller Black for Painkiller H&D... and seems like a good deal overall*.

*On the other hand.. a benefit to using the retail painkiller triple dose discs is the copies on there have no DRM... not even a disc check at this point. So, one doesn't have to launch a third party client like Steam in order to run it. Handy when running it from a Wine wrapper.
