One of the many charms of the Painkiller series is the lack of a convoluted storyline, so in honour of that I shall cut to the chase.

The original game was never really more than a stress-buster, and neither is its remake - your character is faced with wave after wave of laughably weak enemies, which you can cut down in various gruesome fashions using an array of powerful weapons. Take down one at a time with the shotgun, or allow a crowd to develop before scattering them to the four winds with a rocket launcher. All disturbingly satisfying.

The AI was never much to write home about, but the levels were stunning and the physics were unique. Fans of the original will be excited to hear that most of the things that made Painkiller such a likeable game have been maintained in its new incarnation.

They may not, however, be so enthused about the choice of levels on offer. The developers have cherry-picked 14 levels from the original Painkiller and its expansion, Battle Out Of Hell. That leaves out a lot of quality and makes the game feel a little short. My personal opinion is that Colosseum (which features in this game) is far too repetitive and far too easy, and should not have been included. Loony Park returns with its infuriating roller-coaster ride, where avoiding enemy fire is impossible. The final boss battle is a little anti-climactic.

Multi-player exists, but there never seems to be anyone around, so I'm unable to review it.

In summary, this is a good remake, but it's nothing mind-blowing. The graphics have been upgraded and some of the levels look wonderful, but the choice and number of levels just feels a bit disappointing.

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is a complete re-past of painkiller black edition. apart from semi OK graphics the game play is simple and fun if not repetitive at times. all in all its cheaper to buy here than on Steam.

This game was very disapointing to say the least, it is almost a straight rip off from the previous version in relation to sets and bosses

It's a mixture of a few of the old Painkiller chapters and very little new. I've bought the whole set and I would not buy another one

No-one knows how to keep re-releasing the same old game under different names the way that painkiller does. These guys should be locked up for robbery.
