Excerpt: After â€œextended development time,â€� the Painkiller franchise has finally crept its way onto the Xbox in the form of Painkiller: Hell Wars. Don't let the name fool you, though, Hell Wars is essentially a port of the original PC game and its expansion.
Excerpt: I think most people have a favourite super hero, or at least a favourite set of super heroes. For lots of people my age it's X-Men, simply because of the great cartoon series that was on TV every morning before school.
Summary: Painkiller is a first-person horror shooter, designed to satisfy the gamer's hunger for intense, fast-paced action. You are Painkiller, a mercenary for hire, charged with cleaning out nests of the undead.
Conclusion: In the end is Painkiller Hell Wars worth the $30 price tag? Well, it really depends on your perspective. If you're a first person fanatic and long for a game as simplistic and mind-numbingly fun as the original Doom then you'll get the most out of this title.
Conclusion: Painkiller isn’t a slam dunk must buy for every gamer out there, but there is a lot here that will appeal to a large portion of Xbox gamers. Players that are aching for an action shooter in the vein of DOOM or Duke Nukem will love the pace at which this game runs at, and for those gore hounds...
Conclusion: If you still haven't jumped into the next generation of gaming or finished the PC version of Painkiller, then Hell Wars is worth a look. Painkiller: Hell Wars is a great stress reliever that has a strong pace never lets up.
