Painkiller: Hell & Damnation Review

GameSpot
29 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Harking back to a simpler era of first-person shooters, Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is far more concerned with body counts and blood spray than depth in the gameplay department. The return to the genre's primal roots is a welcome one, even if it feels like indulging in the gaming equivalent of a junk food binge. Unflinchingly old-school, this remake of the gory original is fast-paced, campy as hell, and full of action.
  • Pros: Great visual makeover freshens up old locales, Weapons are sadistic and satisfying, Co-op campaign option is a nice added touch
  • Cons: Despite the new look, very little has changed over the years, Short campaign lacks content

Painkiller: Overdose

The Gamers Temple
24 May 2010
  • Excerpt: I really enjoyed the first two Painkiller games. Sure, at their core they were simple, mindless shooters, but the non-stop action, creative settings, imaginative enemies, and driving speed metal soundtrack all worked together to make them simply fun to play. For budget titles they sure delivered a lot of entertainment.

  • Excerpt: People love--no, they need--to make comparisons. Comparing and evaluating is pretty much hardwired into the brain of most living things, and it certainly helped us evolve from the primordial Campbell's into the sophisticated, Jackass-watching species we are today (fruit=good; rock shaped like fruit=not so much).

  • Excerpt: If 2004's Painkiller made you giddy with hellfire catharsis, this expansion pack just might be the nostalgic revisit you need. That is to say, also, Painkiller Overdose sure feels like a 2004 game, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Painkiller: Overdose is basically a community mod for the FPS game Painkiller . It's been 3 years since the original game came out, and the world has seen more complex shooters with story and atmosphere to boot. So is there any reason to pick up another flavor of this game? You'll at least get a good visual experience with Painkiller: Overdose . Backgrounds are gritty and shadow-laden.

Game Freaks 365
23 March 2008
  • Excerpt: It is hard to believe 2004 was just four years ago. It was a time of transition. For handhelds, the Nintendo DS was introduced to replace the Game Boy Advance. Xbox 360 was being prepared for its launch just a year later. And on the PC, Doom 3 and Half-Life 2 are the games that could largely be credited as being the first true “next-gen” games. Somewhere in this mix Painkiller found itself. It was well-received, getting an 8.4 out of 10 from Game Freaks 365.
