Painkiller: Hell Wars Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • 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 looking for a splatter fest, this one fits the bill.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a feature-packed game; one of those rare birds that feels like arcade gaming, but with that next-gen edge that helps to justify $400+ dollars of hardware. It has a few glitches here and there, but the core gameplay is solid and quite entertaining for those that need a little RPG in their action game, or vice-versa.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Review

VideoGamer.com
3 June 2007
  • 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. The great thing about Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is that it'll please the majority of super hero fans - that is unless you happen to favour anyone from DC Comics or one of the few characters from the Marvel stable that isn't included.

  • Conclusion: A pared down meat-and-potatoes shooter, heavy on visceral mayo and lite on the rest of the fixings. High fidelity to its PC forebears, putting you in a vegetative killing state with interspersed spikes of adrenaline.

Painkiller: Hell Wars

Game Over Online
22 August 2006
  • Excerpt: After “extended 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. With the clock running out on Microsoft's aging console, the question arises: has Hell Wars arrived at the party too late, or does it provide Xbox FPS gamers with one last hurrah?

  • 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. For the rest of us though, there are better FPS on the market. Dated mechanics, poor AI, linear gameplay, framerate issues, and an all around feeling of repetition really plague this game.

Painkiller: Hell Wars

Thunderbolt Games
2 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Painkiller: Hell Wars bothers me. It bothers me because it’s not a good game. It isn’t. A lot of people will tell you that it’s great, but it isn’t. Painkiller: Hell Wars casts you as Daniel Garner, a man sent to purgatory after a car accident. He then becomes an exterminator of hell’s worst demons and that’s the last of the story.

Painkiller: Hell Wars Review

GameSpot
28 July 2006
  • Summary: A hodgepodge of memorable levels and satisfyingly straightforward and bloody pure shooting action highlights this first-person shooter, which combines the PC version of Painkiller with its expansion pack.
  • Pros: Gory, intense shooting action makes great use of realistic physics, Impressively diverse level variety makes you look forward to each new stage, Effectively combines levels from the original game and its expansion pack, Good replay value, and not just because of the multiplayer mode
  • Cons: Technical performance issues bog down the presentation, A few awkward design choices hurt the pacing in spots

  • 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. If slaughtering demons with a host of deadly weapons set on full throttle sounds like fun, then you will have a great time with Painkiller: Hell Wars.
