Pain Gameplay

Pain is a video game in which players attempt to damage the ragdoll character they play and the environment as much as possible by flinging them from a rubber-band slingshot, using the Havok physics engine. The characters all have distinctive poses and phrases, can move by "ooching" and can grab things to throw or hang from. Replay videos can be watched, and can be edited and uploaded to YouTube or the PlayStation 3's hard disc drive.

The game has received mixed to positive reviews and has an aggregate score of 71% on Metacritic. GameSpot gave the game a 7.5/10, praising the game for its "great use of Havok physics engine" and "smartly sophomoric sense of humor," but criticized it for having just one level. IGN gave the game a 6.8/10 commenting that "One level, two characters, no online multiplayer and no way to share crazy clips sucks. However, there are a ton of trophies to unlock."

Since the time of these reviews, several levels, online multiplayer, and new playable characters have been added.

As of October 26, 2010 a new patch was released for Move capabilities.
