About This 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!

Key features

  • 100 % UNCUT version in all languages
  • A modern remake of the Classic shooters, Painkiller and Battle Out Of Hell
  • 15 adrenaline filled levels, including 4 Boss levels
  • Includes a special Halloween level
  • Over 30 of the nastiest, darkest creatures from Hell
  • Devastating and unique arsenal of weapons
  • Singleplayer and Co-operative Campaigns spread across 4 Chapters
  • PvP and PvE Multiplayer modes
  • The soundtrack is forged in the same furnace as the weapons: heavy metal
  • Powered by Unreal Engine 3®
  • Steamworks fully integrated
Key Anti-Features (you know… the ones that make life EASY):
  • NO Kill-streak bonuses or airstrikes
  • NO auto-heal
  • NO AK-47, NO M16 or that sort of sh*t; just a healthy dose of .666 calibre weapons!

Ah, good old Painkiller. The workshop is kinda empty, 3 items as I remember. Dunno if anyone even cares about multi. This game is all about kicking hell's butt. Gather amazing weapons with up to 3 different attacks! Just imagine, You are beating some giant and run out of ammo. NOPE. You have secondary attack with separate ammo.
Totaly recommend because seriously, who doesn't like to shoot at everything without covering or even giving a cr** about your health? (yet it's still important)

Painkiller Hell and Damnation is an "Arena" style FPS game, it's a fantastic game full of beautiful environments and great visual effects, it's a dark game series by nature, it only has a few flaws, yes there are ALOT of DLC content for this game but it adds different aspects with each one.

It really does have a lacking storyline though, Death points you where to go, you kill. meet up with random female by chance, kill more. If you want a FPS game with a badass soundtrack, hundreds of enemies, a huge arsenal of guns(some of which would be considered a warcrime if used today) Also the game is open for users to mod and create content for it.

Don't bother. Has only a few of the levels from the original with other ones sold as DLC. Graphics kind of look prettier but the levels have subtle changes from the original that kind of ruin the flow. Just get Painkiller: Black and ignore the rest.

If you have any nostalgia for the original Painkiller you are going to hate this 4-hour abortion. It could have just been an HD remake and that would have been awesome. Instead they slapped on this bizarre new story and crowbarred in cutscenes that made me cringe. The worst tried to halfheartedly humanize the demon hordes you're almost constantly mowing down by showing them going about mundane routines, like a witch pushing a recycling cart and a Nazi corpse and BDSM gimp hugging it out on a park bench, just before you show up and apparently RUIN EVERYTHING! Game balance and flow is messed up by a dumb mechanic in which If you don't collect killed enemies' souls fast enough, they turn into skeletons that are harder to kill than the original enemies they came from. The Tarot cards are worthless. Levels from the original were reworked liberally, sometimes in awful directions. Some of the best like the WW2-themed one and pretty much the whole final act, including that amazing boss fight in Hell, have vanished and been replaced with hot garbage. As a final insult, the ending cutscene actually gives a nod to probably the worst of the sequels. ♥♥♥♥ this game.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation is nothing like the original. I would often forget I was playing a Painkiller game and think it was Serious Sam, hence no story line just masses of enemies waiting to get blown to pieces. As a fps run and gun its quite entertaining and fun. The sound tracks are good, and the graphics quit appealing. So if your looking for mindless carnage with a heavy metal score this is the game for you.

I have not played Painkiller since it first came out in 2004 and thought I would give this remake a try. It seems that Painkiller really has not changed all that much since I last remember playing it.

Hell & Damnation keeps the spirit of the original gameplay and adds some new features, such as an upgrade to Unreal 3, new story line, and Steamworks integration. Unfortunately it also seems to have a bit of a downgrade in the amount of campaign content. I remember Painkiller having twice as many levels as Hell & Damnation. What has happened is that half of the original levels were chosen to be included into the campaign and then the remainder were added-in via DLC. This really takes a lot of the value out of the game as the original was twice as long and less expensive.

The game has stuck to it's original formula with little change. The epic boss fights are still there. Guns still feel great and the alt-fire modes give plenty of ways to dispatch hell's minions and the heavy metal soundtrack is as heavy hitting as the weapons. The levels appear mostly the same as they were before and little has changed other than a few minor things here-and-there.

I have also noticed a change in the voicing of Daniel Garner in this game. It appears that John St. John (of Duke Nukem fame) does the voice acting for Daniel in Hell & Damnation. I kept expecting to hear Duke one-liners every time I heard him talk!

Overall the game was fun to play though I am dissapointed with the decision to remove half of the original content and repackage it as DLC. I was fortunate to get Hell & Damnation as part of a bundle deal and purchased the DLC during a Steam sale at 80% off. I would recommend Hell & Damnation if you can get it on sale. Otherwise if you don't mind missing the visual upgrade to the Unreal 3 engine and the Steamworks bits, then Painkiller Black Edition is a better deal since it contains all of the original Painkiller content at less than the H&D price.

This game... Is disgusting.

When it was in Pre-Order state, I've expected it to be an HD remake of the good old Painkiller (the first). Naturally, I got excited. Oh god, was I wrong. What it is exactly, is a compilation of SOME of the original's levels with an even worse, blury graphics. You could say that it's just a point of view, that it's just me, who didnt get what was expected, but can you really blame me? This game is a lazy scam. A convinient way to make some money on the people, who truly love the original. The game is a dissapointment, graphics got less appealing, the story is different, half of the original's levels is missing (some you could buy as DLC's, cus money is all that matters to the developer). To be honest... This is the worst way I've spend money in my entire life. And I buy hats in TF2.

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation brings no shame to the original game. Guys from The Farm 51 took their job seriously and tried to freshen up the series the best way possible. Younger gamers have the opportunity to look how FPS games looked almost a decade ago, and older gamers get to go back in time but with really nice graphics. Hell & Damnation, despite old mechanics - is a game that's worth checking out. Killing hordes of demons is very pleasant.The developers have masterfully adapted everything that made the original Painkiller so enjoyable to a new engine that looks fantastic and plays liquid smooth.Hell & Damnation is a successful homage to the original Painkiller with a new engine, much better graphics and the same fast-paced style. It's pretty sad though, that the most fun multiplayer mode doesn't get played a lot. That would've extended the durability of the game significantly.In any case, Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is a fun blast from the past.

Good game and remake. Only half the content though of the original. DLC adds maps (including maps from the original painkiller) but as with all DLC, it adds up to be far more expensive than you would pay for an expansion pack.

Pick it up on a steam sale, otherwise just pick up the original painkiller.

Fun, Mindless shooter with coins to collect! What better way to waste your time. The graphics are great and is running easily great on a good graphics card. I had the original and this seems more or less the same but more refined, less bugs, (i it seems like more fun weapons...or at least you get them quicker, but i could be wrong), and seems a bit easier over all, or at least on regular diffulity...hey, but sometimes that is fun when you just want to run around and shoot stuff....

Quality in graphics, but lacks of quality contents.

The solid gunplay, satisfied dismemberment, enemy and weapon designs, original and twisted levels, and great metal soundtack always entertain me a lot. I have to say is more like remaked version than sequel. Even, the story is written in alternative path. The cutscene uses its in-game engine which is very well made, but overall story is quite decent compared to its origin.
The big change is its graphics, Unreal engine 3 this time provide spectacular look and atmosphere is much more alive. The loading time is improved and very well optimized. The gameplay is still fun, blasting enemy away or pin them to the wall are pretty much satisfied. Most of weapons are from original game which I think it doesn't need to be changed at all and the soul catcher provides your handy saw and enemy possession.

However, it's really disappointed from my expectation. Hell and Damnation doesn't offer much more content. The content is cut in half compared to original (Black Edition). The enemies are pretty much reused in many levels and it's getting repetitive due to lack of enemy variation. Moreover, you wont see some potential enemies from original (Nun ghost, Loki, Ninja, Vamp, Nurse Lab, etc.). They have some tricky move and fun to kill. The soundtracks still top-notch, but some new tracks doesn't fit with level at all. I may sound *****ing so much, but these elements are the reason why painkiller always hold my fun.

Another thing I have to mention is player hitbox is too wide. Even you try to change your FOV or moving backward during attack animation, you still get hit. It's really annoy flaw, which still wont be fixed yet.

Hell and Damnation can be a great refresh for series, but it lacks of potential content which you can get all of them from Black Edition with much more lower price. Most of its DLCs are just contents from original and gamemode doesn't feel like Painkiller which it's poor business. You want more map, pay for original maps, you want more tarot cards, pay for more original card. So, I recommend to get it on sale for both old fans and newcomers.

Painkiller series is always one of my favorite old school shooter all the time, but this one just doesn't hold me long enough than original, beside complete game achievments and play with some friends.
