Yay! More Painkiller.
Well, BoOH is more PK with more exotic weapons combos and it looks like OD is much more of the same. i really got into unlocking levels and finding all the jumps and secret spots in PK/BoOH ... Graphics are updated but nothing like the makeover Hl2's EP2 got.
--Graphics barely matters when you can't take a breath. And i could max absolutely every in-game setting at 10x16 with excellent FPS ... i didn't finish it ... but i want the game
:Q

And OD is the same frantic PK game in hell i remember - mass enemy NPCs ... the demo dumps you in the middle of it all and you barely have time to switch from one weapon to the other. i like the new weapons so far. Unless it has poor reviews it's on my list.

I gave it a try (Overdose Demo) and I thought it was poor compared to either the original or Battle out of Hell. I don't like the whole demonic theme (character himself and the weapons models), and I tried the weapons with pkweapons and pkammo, and I just don't like most of them. And, well, quite frankly, the graphics are lacking. It feels like I am playing some UT2004 modification.

It's the same PK engine as the original, so don't be waiting for UT3 level graphics. However, just like Q3, what makes PK awesome is gameplay.

I was also referring to the game-play. I still own and occasionally play the original without any boredom. I liked BooH too (less than the original but still liked it).

I just got the demo and mindless shooting with no objectives. I just can't bare myself with these type of games.
