This game is all around classic painkiller, but that's the problem. They literally just took some of the best levels from the original, and repackaged them with some fancy graphics, even the alastor boss fight is just a stupid remake. No context is given for fighting alastor like in the first game, so it was at the end just extremely stupid.
This makes the story even more conviluted, as your are just retracing your EXACT steps from the first game, except eve and daniel are just saying different stuff. Voice acting is particularly ♥♥♥♥ty as well. However, the grim reaper was a pretty cool character. Additionally the developers are starting keep up with the times since eve is somewhat clothed in this version, only somewhat however, still in kind of poor taste.
Painkiller Hell and Damnation is an excellent piece of evidence of what happens when game developers get really lazy. They crap out a ♥♥♥♥ty title expecting fan boys they got from the previous games will buy it right away. When people want evidence of this, they no longer have to only point fingers at Call of Duty. Lazy game design can happen to any developer.
All in all, just buy the original Painkiller: Black Edition. You'll get a ♥♥♥♥ ton of levels, that includes the ones in this game. So what if the graphics are a bit dated, you get your moneys worth which is more than I can say for this abortion of a game. By the way, I only payed 2 bucks for it.
If you buy this version instead of Painkiller: Black Edition, you are either an idiot or too obsessed with graphics to make a good decision, in which case you are still an idiot.
Painkiller: Black Edition 8.5/10
this pile of steaming feces: -3 / 10 (was going to be -4, but the soul catcher was kinda fun to play with)
EDIT: Vote this down you rabid fanboys, doesn't change the truth that this is just a crappy remake of Painkiller: Black Edition.
