About the Game

Heaven's Hitman is Back... With a Vengeance

Evil has returned! Demonic powers are manifesting themselves as a myriad of dark creatures, fighting over the fates of imprisoned souls caught in Purgatory.

Once again, it is up to Daniel Garner, in the unenviable position of being the Curse of Darkness and the Toy of Light, to fight his way past hordes of demons and fiends.

Questions remain… “Can he stop the powerful creatures that stand in his way? Will he ever leave the hell of Purgatory and be reunited with his wife Catherine?”

Painkiller Hell & Damnation is a fast-paced, thrilling modern remake of an all-action shooter Classic!

Hell & Damnation (H&D) is a remake of the origiinal game, but is several times more expensive as they have cut the game and released the cut bits as several dlc packs that cost around £6 each. The total cost of the main game plus all dlc is ridiculously expensive (if you don't get it in a sale) at over £57 (approx $85) and that's not including the £7 to upgrade to the deluxe edition (which gives you a single player tarot pack and multiplayer skins). To be honest, no matter how much I enjoyed playing this game I'd advise anyone strapped for cash to get the Painkiller Black edition, which is basically the same game (includes the original game plus the first expansion 'Battle out of Hell' The main difference between the two is H&D has better grahics, but they aren't worlds apart considering the original is 10 years old now, and definitely doesn't justify the extortinate price of the upgraded H&D. Painkiller Black usually costs £10. I've still to buy two of the dlc's for H&D which haven't been reduced in price since their release in October 2013 (Demonic Vacation at the Blood Sea) and December 2013 (City Critters). The former dlc does have an extra weapon that fires fiery cannonballs. :)

If you're a fan of the original series, you'll get this, otherwise I advise stick with the Black Edition, it's much better value for money a tthis time (Jan 2014)

You can see that the updated version has a little more atmosphere in the graveyard, for example a deeper mist; and, the graphics are sharper, the weapons look shinier etc, otherwise it looks virtually the same

For a start, this game is an absolute copy of the original Painkiller, and because of that, especially If you're new to the franchise, I'd strongly recommend getting Painkiller - Black Edition instead of this. Reasoning? The original one (here it is on Steam) has 24 levels + 10 amazing bonus expansion levels, compared to 14 of Hell and Damnation, which were taken from different parts of the original game. That's much more content for a lesser price. Besides, the original Painkiller has the best credits theme ever, but that's just for my taste. But, if you're here for a bit better graphics and steam achievements, Hell and Damnation is probably your game of choice. OR IS IT?

The graphics look almost exactly the same. I have no idea how the developer managed to do that, but the remade game feels and looks exactly the same as the original. Good work on that. Yes, the shaders are better, maybe some extra lightning and bump-mapping.. but during your regular non-stop bunnyhopping demon hunting you don't really have a chance to admire that beauty, so I wouldn't say Hell and Damnation is worth buying if you're only looking for a fancy picture. Unreal Engine 3 works great and provides with a smooth picture here, but there are other games around which look much better and on which I'm not rambling here because they're not Painkiller.

As for the sound of H&D, it is solid metal great. Mostly original Painkiller music tracks with a few new ones, which sound very fitting too. All ingame sounds, including shooting and growling, are done very nicely too. My only concern is the lack of a cool vocal credits theme.

[Achievements and Multiplayer]
You're not going to 100% this game achievementwise, unless you're ready to buy a whole package of odd dlcs, and convince at least some of your friends of buying that game to play multiplayer together. Yep, it's pretty deserted in mp, but you can always go for some coop walkthrough. As for the dlcs, I've heard that the one called 'Heaven's Above' adds a bird's eye view, how cool is that? Yeah, pretty absurd, but I don't think you need to buy this particular dlc for any achievements, so there's at least that.

[Gameplay and Plot]
The gameplay is really brisk, as expected from a Painkiller game. You're jumping around and killing tons of running towards you enemies, fun times! Hell and Damnation actually added 1 new weapon, which allows you to collect souls from a distance, and that's a pretty interesting new feature. Other than that, you have your old reliable shotty, stakes, and all the rest of the original Painkiller and Painkiller: BOH (the expansion) weapons. As for the plot, this game has traditionally close to none, so don't even try finding any sense or hidden messages here. Daniel is good, daemons are bad, go kill them, that's all you need to know.

After beating Hell and Damnation on the last difficulty, I realized, that it's Hellishly easy. And I'm not being overly-hardcore here, but playing it on Nightmare seems to be the most proper way of getting at least some sort of a challenge and the good old Painkiller experience. The unlockable Trauma difficulty doesn't really add much to it, provided you managed to get through the previous one and got all of the cards. The Tarot Cards unlocking process is also sort of simplified: most of the times you don't even have to look up your Tarot unlocking conditions, and you still 'achieve' a card or two by the end of the level. The original Painkiller game had something much tougher than that. Like a no-hit Tarot challenge.

Painkiller: H&D is a fun game, which ends just before you can get bored of it. The only big concern is the price of the game, which bites a lot, especially if you want to get the full package with every level and achievement available. H&D offers less content than the original Black Edition, but it has a bunch of extra sweets, like an extra halloween cemetary level, or easter eggs hunting, which is pretty awesome, because that's actually something new. If you manage to get your hands on H&D (and it's dlcs) during a sale, it's most likely worth your while and you're in for a hellishly fun ride!
Or just go and buy it now, we need more people in multiplayer :P

In 2004, Painkiller rocked the FPS world with it's Serious Sam-esque action in a Doom like atmosphere, complimented with face-melting metal music. But the rule of cool can only carry you so far, and subsequent expansions and sequels either failed to match the spirit of the original or just didn't deliver anything we hadn't seen before. Unfortunately, Hell and Damnation is just another such title. It doesn't even know if it wants to be a reboot or a sequel, and the vaunted new graphics aren't even anything to write home about in this day and age.

Campaign mode is woefully short, should only take you the best part of a day or two unless you invest in any of the DLC, which only serves to bulk the game up to what it should have been in the first place. There's also apparently a multiplayer mode featuring all the usual modes like Capture the Flag. Is it any good? Does anybody besides me even play this anymore?

The best any Painkiller veteran can hope for playing through this expecting the old buzz will be a feeling of mostly "... meh." I feel like returning to the wife I've come to despise whenever I get sucked back into this grasping on to that hope. Granted, maybe this will attract a newer generation to the series in time for the next installment, Painkiller: Oh Bloody Hell, Give It a Rest

Anything else? Um, there's a moth in here with me.

This game reminds me doom or quick 3, don't think just shoot! If you are tired of thinking and need a relax this is exactly what you were looking for. Story is like if there wasn't any, all the time you are running around , quickly shooting and jumping like a kangaroo. There are just few bosses, a little more levels which are short or long enough to make you feel bored.
