Get back into Painkiller with a Friend on your sideEbo | March 21, 2014 | See all Ebo's reviews »
It's not gonna win any Game of the Year Awards and it might even have a few technical problems (some framerate issues here and there, and other strange occurrences that I'm not even going to mention), but if you came for Painkiller, then Painkiller is what you get. Mindless shooting of hordes of enemies with a cool set of weapons, each unique in their own way (not just bullets) and for the first time in the series, CO-OP.
Yes, a friend can join on the carnage, unfortunately only a single one can. It's 2 player co-op only, so keep that in mind if you're buying this.
But really, this is more or less a remake of the original Painkiller and its expansion, so if you plan on buying Hell & Damnation, also grab a second copy for a friend. Unless you're here for the co-op, I recommend sticking to Painkiller: Black Edition, which has a lot more levels but is single player only.
I'd say you get at least 5 hours of co-op fun out of playing the 4 main chapters that the game comes with. If you haven't had enough and want more, there are loads of extra levels available as dlc.

A modern "old-school" shooter with amazing visuals, frantic game-play, epic boss fights, and sweet weapons. The enemies and weapons are greatly varied, keeping the game fresh as well. The only set-back is the story and voice acting, which, only happens during cut-scenes. All-in-all, if you're a "game-play over story" kind of person, this game is for you.

The original Painkiller by People Can Fly was released several years ago and, despite belonging to a niche genre, has managed to achieve great success, enough to make the publisher DreamCatcher to finance several other projects, often of dubious quality. 2013 is the year of Hell & Damnation, a sort of re-release in HD with the Unreal Engine 3 of the original Painkiller. The element that distinguishes Painkiller by the great mass of the FPS is its frenetic, in fact the game looks like an old school shooter "ignorant" and violent, in which we will have to slay enemies, making full use of our vast arsenal which boasts, among various weapons, one shootgun, a huge machine gun that can be used as a machine gun and rocket launcher / flamethrower. For the duration of the adventure we continually shoot everything that moves and constantly moving to stay alive. Hell & Damnation reaches its highest point with spectacular boss fight, during which we have to face giant monsters, always using different tactics to understand their weaknesses. The neophytes may not withstand the extreme repetitiveness and the lack of variety or lack of game vehicles.

Painkiller returns, this time with more blood and funs. After so many years back to purgatory to try to escape from it and restore our beloved, but that we go over all devils, ghosts and other creatures that we will make the task any easier.
Gameplay: Playable, this title is equal to the previous painkiller. It consists mainly of running and killing. No complicated patterns or esenario interaction. The enemies are varied and have different skills. Each weapon has 2 types of ammunition, to help us in our task. Moreover, to improve our combos, we may use and equip ourselves with the "tarot", for example, causes more damage inflinjamos given weapon or receive less damage.
Technology: Hell & Damnation working with the Unreal Engine 3, which is a bit old, but good graphics Sudan him.
Graphics: The configuration optimization is quite precarious and does not change much from the options low, medium and high. But still the graphics are pretty good, especially after having played the previous titles in the series.
Sound: The sound of the enemies not good. Many of the Devils make the same noise when attacking or "growl". Weapons have good sound, with each type of ammo you can hear a different sound in general.
Innovation: You could say that there is not much innovation in this title, as well as another in the series or as individual play. As I said, consists only of running and gunning.
In short, it is a good game for fans of the "old school". Muho Remember the old "DooM" and Duke Nukem. And for those not familiar with this series, is a good start.

I really liked the original Painkiller game and its expansion Battle Out Of Hell. Fast paced, crazy, gory shooter like Doom and Quake were in old days. There are challenging secrets to find and a tarot card system which gives nice boosts. This remake is a mixed bag. Main improvements consists of shiny Unreal Engine 3 graphics and two player co-op mode. Also comes with lots of steam achievements to hunt. Sadly, there aren't much levels to play though more comes with DLCs. Co-op is welcome addition but has some frustating issues. Tarot cards cannot be used and unlocked. There's no location indicator for you partner. After dying you must wait some time to respawn but if you both get killed you must start level from the beginning. However playing with friend is a fun experience. Not recommended for die hard single player fans of original Painkiller but its ok new players and those who want to try co-op.
