This Painkiller: Resurrection trailer is sorta hilarious Posted 13 years ago by Jordan Devore Oh, would you look at that classy fire backdrop. Painkiller: Resurrection is clearly a quality product, guys. *Cue hilariously over-the-top scream followed by absurd, screen-filling blood splatter* I can’t quite tell if this was supposed to be a funny trailer or not. Unintentional humor is often the best kind, though. To celebrate Painkiller: Resurrection going gold — the first-person shooter is out for PC on the 27th — JoWooD Productions kindly shared this piece of visual tomfoolery with us. Seeing as how this video was the first footage I have even seen of the game, and how it tended to show stuff that, uh, looks almost exactly like prior Painkiller games, I’m not too hopeful here. For these Doom-like games to work, you at least need new enemies, new weapons, and lots of them. Otherwise, they simply get boring quick.
