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!

Reading the reviews for Painkiller Hell & Damnation. Most people are giving a thumbs down for it not being like the original. I personal havnt played any other Painkillers but this one. For me i really enjoyed this game, And i still do go back and play whatever level I want whenever i want. This game reminds me of when i played Quake, or even Doom back in the day when i was a teenager. As soon as combat starts and the Rock music begins to play, I just zone out and blast my way threw those demons, undead and reapers on my quest to finish the level. By no means is this a GREAT! game. The story isnt the best. But thats not why Im playing this F.P.S game anyways. I just want to kill ♥♥♥♥. And that is exactly what you will be tasked to do. Each level was some what unique. The boss fights were fun and depending on the difficulty you choose to play im sure it could even be hard. I'm giving this game a thumbs up Because I enjoy and still play it. I have even started to buy the DLC for this game which makes it even funner. especially when you get to dual weld your guns. Look I found this game to be fun. Thats all im saying.

I would have preferred this to be a completely new continuation from the 2004 title, instead of an attenuated remake/quasi-sequel, a game that ignores all of the defilement that came after the original. However, this is still an admirable effort to bring the Painkiller series back to its pure and exalted roots, an act of cleansing that expels the iniquity it was drowning in. The central problem of Hell & Damnation lies in the developer's choices regarding what content from the original game deserved to make the cut and be included in the remake. A lot of great levels were left out and the final selection we are presented with is less than desirable, furthermore, placing the swamp thing after Alastor is an outright pacing failure, a decision that makes no sense from both a gameplay and story perspective. The addition of a new weapon and boss produce such a small impact on the game that they are barely worth mentioning.

Purchase Hell & Damnation bundled with all its DLC as the base game is severely lacking in content.

I didnt know its possible to fu.k up the perfect game. I spend tons of hours playing original PK and Black edition which wasnt available on steam that time. This my friends, is just a stupid f shi. not worth your money.
Dynamic of game is gone, gore is gone and is substituted by some ketchup spray gifs, graphics are terribble at full hd ultra settings, lightings are from '97 , enemies from some ♥♥♥♥♥♥ dlc levels now spawn everywhere even on classic original PK levels like cathedral destroying the original spirit of the game, dlc levels mixed with original in uncorrect act orders, movies-cutscenes from kindergarten.... I dont have words for this crap. It's like michel bay remastering your fav childhood movie.
3/10

Go buy Black Edition and dont feed this company cause they dont deserve to make games.

It's a 'lite' version of the original game and it's expansion. A ton of levels were cut out, repackaged as DLC (and it's still not all of them there). The 'cutscenes' aren't the same as the original, in fact somehow made worse. Samael was changed from his angelic hotness to a generic Grim Reaper image, the English dialogue sounds like an amateur school play, and Eve looks way too mannish.

Someone mentioned this feels more like a "fanfic" version of the game, and I agree. Feels like the devs of this version thought they could do it better, and ruined a big chunk of it trying to. Either that or Nordic Games, trying to cash in on all the assets they bought off the corpses of THQ and JoWood, rushed this POS out the door and chopped it up along the way, hoping to milk more money out of the older fans. In either case, this is a bad buy, 'HD' or not.

Save yourself lots of DLC money and go buy Painkiller Black Edition. Get it from GOG, it's a better deal with all the extras.

This game is fan fiction of the original Painkiller.

Everything looks more detailed, but that's about the only upside.

They "re-envisioned" the original campaign, mostly rebuilding the original levels, but still changing lots of things here and there, usually for the negative or for no reason whatsoever. The main change being that the game now throws mainly fast-moving enemies at you, from the very start, and when introducing new enemies, does not allow you to learn about them by introducing them on their own, but adds hordes of other enemies. They also changed the weapons you get, and have you starting out not with the default weapon, the iconic blade fan, but with an endgame weapon.

And in terms of non-gameplay: Over half of the missions from the original campaign, which was designed with a thematic progression, are now DLC.

Get Painkiller Black instead. It doesn't have widescreen mode, the textures are low-res, but at least it was made by people who respect their users.

Sometimes you'll get lost. Sometimes you won't "get" how the ♥♥♥♥ you're supposed to progress or beat a certain boss until your 90th retry or a google search.

But it's fast, furious, balls to the wall classic PC arcade shooting fun. Considering it can be commonly found extremely cheap. I'd say this is worth your while.

It runs well, doesn't have any technical issues that I'm aware of and it looks good enough. For under ten bucks, give it a spin. Anything over that though and you'll be better served by Serious Sam 3 or Shadow Warrior.

One of famous Hell's classics.

This particular piece features an urgent need of pressing spacebar, since you get easily possesed by a spirit of Satan's bunny.
Drastically influences your performance in other FPS games, because mostly you cannot just bunnyhop out of trouble.

But if you don't like bunnies nor hell...I guess you will not like this game either.

The game is a blast. Super fast and lots of fun. Creative use of weapon, like freezing enemy before shooting with shotgun primary, etc. Lots of levels of different variety. Expect sore fingers from constant bunny hopping and shooting.
Graphics are awesome, good optimization too, playing stable 60fps on 4k with everything maxed out, single GTX 980.
Get DLCs.

Piece of ♥♥♥♥. It looks fun as hell til you get in game and realize how bad the enviroment and enemies work. If someone swings at you, even if you back up, move whatever, it hits. They will stand in place while your running around and swing and hit you. Can jump on tombs in the begining but cant jump over tombstones, makes sence. I played all of 30 mins and on hard so I'm sure you get some crazy stuff later, but wow, really needs some work on the basics.

A bitter disappointment

I am a fan of Painkiller franchise (esp. early ones) and was really positive towards 'Hell&Damnation'. Unfortunately, I got hit by a truck with a big DISAPPOINTMENT logo on it. Don't get me wrong, it isn't a bad game at all. But comparing to its precedessor, it is just ... poor. Many of original levels are cut out and sold as DLC, which feels like a robbery. Only changes are to graphic and some enemies, you also get a 'new old' weapon from PK: Overdose. I understand that's a remake, but it just doesn't feel right. In my opinion, it's better to buy Black Edition and have twice as much fun. You only lose achievements and some graphic overhaul, but more (and good) levels more than compensate it.

A laughably horrible remake of one of the most underrated shooters of all time. Missing 3/4 of the original levels and the only real selling point of the game was the coop, but sadly the coop is completely bugged and unplayable halfway through the game. I don't even like the shiny new graphics. This game has been officially uninstalled from my computer, and I gladly went back and reinstalled Painkiller Black Edition. Trust me, don't waste your time with this one.

Remember doing the Town level with only the stakegun? Or the snowy bridge with ninjas? Or the military base with the UFO at the end? Well I hope you do, because this game doesn't have them.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation is basically a prettier but anorexic Painkiller Black Edition. If you've never played Painkiller in your life, start with Painkiller Black Edition, which is avaliable on Steam for only 9,99€ and gives you about 30 levels right off the bat, whereas Painkiller Hell and Damnation, which costs 19,99€ will only give you about 15 of those same levels, some of which are arguably weaker than their original counterparts. That's half the conten for twice the price. And if you want all the singleplayer content for this game you're gonna have to fork over nearly 50€ (assuming you buy the base game + 2 DLC bundles and not all the DLC separately). So Painkiller Black Edition is just a better offer all around.

With that out of the way, what's new in Painkiller Hell and Damnation?
Well, here are my observations from beating the game on Insomnia (Normal difficulty):
-You get a new weapon (The Soulcatcher) which is kind of OP. It shots a saw blade that cuts through several enemies, it's alt-fire acts like a vacuum for souls, which is insanely useful and once you collect enough souls (about 5 or 6) you can use the tertiary fire to convert some of the enemies into your allies for a short period. Overall this new weapon makes the game a bit too easy, but I guess you can just opt out of using it for the most part
-Speaking of weapons, the progression has now been altered, but on the flip side you can use the Battle out of Hell weapons in the vanilla levels. Also some of the weapons have been slightly rebalanced, the most notable exception for me is that the Electrodriver is actually useful now.
-The order of the levels has been redone somewhat. There are now 4 episode instead of the original Painkiller's 5. Train Station is now in episode 2, as opposed to episode 3. You fight the Swamp monster in episode 3 and Alastor in episode 2. In episode 4 you get the Orphanage and Looney Park. The levels themselves have also been changed to some degree. Like the Colosseum is missing some of it's traps, the Oriental Castle takes place in day instead of night etc.
-The monster placement is different. The only new enemy is a skeleton which appears in most of the levels, but then you have some weird decisions like clowns in the Opera House, bikers in the Train Station, and a complete absence of gladiators in Colosseum. I guess it's good that they wanted to make it a fresh experience but a lot of it feels weird and out of place.
-On that note the conditions for Tarot cards have been improved, in my opinion, with the exception of maybe one or two. You can also unlock two tarot cards per level now AND it tells you if you have fullfiled the requirments, which is a very welcome addition.
-You can the story in co-op although I haven't had a chance to test this feature.
-There's also a story with cutscenes in there but honestly I wouldn't bother, it sucks for the most part except for a few "so bad it's good" moments. Also Daniel is voiced by Duke Nukem, but his performance is kind of boring
-If you buy the "Heaven Above" DLC you can play 5 levels of a top down Painkiller, which can be fun, but the camera is so ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ bad it made the whole ordeal way more frustrating than it ought to be.

Sadly some problems haven't been fixed from the original - souls still take way too long to appear for no reason, the enemies still get stuck in doorways and a vast majority of the enemies are ♥♥♥♥ing braindead.

So would I recommend Painkiller Hell & Damnation? Well I wouldn't recommend it over Painkiller Black Edition and certainly not with it's current price tag. However if you love the original game and get this one when it's on sale, I think you won't be disappointed. Really the biggest problem with this game is the price tag, because it just doesn't offer enough new content and features to be priced almost the same as a brand new triple A game.

Painkiller with better graphics. It works as it should. If you like Painkiller BUY THIS.

In my opinion one of the best games ever made.
The only problem I see is the fact that multiplayer is dead... so it's only good for LAN partys.

Best Bunny hop simulator I have ever played. This is the game I have pressed so much SPACE per minute. No, really, I was constantly hopping around, passing the enemies with extreme bunny hop speed and they were like:
"ME SMASH YOU"
*HOP HOP HOP*
"WHERE DID YOU GO?!"
And of course everything else is reapeating. I have completed all the levels on Insomnia difficulty, which was somekind of normal and when I found out in the beginning that actually Jumping gives you speed, I started to do it constantly and many of the levels gives you enough space to hop around like an Easter rabbit, collecting some eggs, but instead you are Daniel, who is collecting souls.
Yeah...
So this game took me around 3,5 hours to complete, with the cinematics and I've tried some of the survival levels of the game. I haven't tried the multiplayer, but I imagine it will be Hipiri-hopiri level with everybody constantly jumping everywhere. At least that is what I would do.
So thanks to the game, now I consider myself as Bunny hop master.
Cheers!

P.S. Actually the best weapon is 1. I mean you can complete the whole game only with this weapon. You just press ultra fast the right button and everything will be fine. Well of course the last level you can't defeat the boss with that weapon, but it is up to you to find out!
Cheeki breeki!

I've finished the game with a friend and all I can say is that... this game is 90% identic to the initial Painkiller game. But the difference is in the xx DLCs and some nice effects.

I've finished the game only in co-op, I was really bored of playing it alone, I asked a friend for help. The 1st difference, there's no more... quick save and quick load in SP. Also this game still neve heard of... a map? Or more info about the Tarod cards. I wasn't able to find some of them and seeing that I can't quick save... I never bothered to try again. From my point of view, that's zero replay value.

Also I have never bought the DLCs... sorry but those were meaningless for me.

One curious thing is that the co-op experience doesn't count as a team the gold/souls/ or secrets, nor shares any info between the players. It's hard to know where the co-op partner is since there's no map or a 2nd arrow that can help with this. Also if the co-op partner found a secret, it's not shared, which is quite strange since only one the co-op partners can select the deck before each level.

It has acheivements which is ok, every game has those anyway, but these are not really explained. After the confusion with the co-op experience, the achievements are not shared either, only the leader of the co-op session will get them. Again... why?

As a let's say... poor design choice is the girl... or the facial animations, or the voice... all are bad. I mean the people that worked on this game, never cared about it. The voices do not relate to the char, the animations are not that good, maybe decent, but the movies are... well not at a 2012 level.

P.S. One of the cards, the ones that attracts the souls to the player, doesn't always work. It doesn't work on all the souls, and the distance from where the souls are atracted to the player is not that big. I don't think this will ever be fixed, but one can hope.

To be honest the co-op is decent, yes there are some problems but one can play and finish the game, with a friend. Finding the secrets, the cards and using different decks is quite ok, and I liked it. But I had no idea about some secrets, I couldn't even find a map or a decent guide that could help me find those secrets and I focused just on finishing the game.

It takes around 6-8 hours to finish all the levels, some bosses are nice, same are lame but it's like playing Painkiller with a nice graphical upgrade. Also one nice thing are the weapons, this is by far the most interesting feature implemented. Every weapon has two modes, different but very efficient at killing the enemy. Painkiller has inovated this feature and I don't think that I know another game with this many weapons and implemented like this.

My score is 6/10. Quick save/Quick load is gone, that's 1 point, no map, another point. Having too many DLCs... sorry I don't like it, thus I've bought none of them nor I want to buy them in the future. The fact that the money/secrets/acheivements are not shared doing a co-op session... that's 2 points by itself. I didn't like it, and considering in what year we are... sorry but a co-op session should share anything between the players.


Nonetheless, please try it. Just for the weapons alone, since the story is a little bit confused :P.

This version is a blast for a while, but ultimately its glitches making some dlc levels unfinishable (Monastery map can't be beaten, locking two levels after it as well) and its overall lack of content in the main game, forcing you to buy all the dlc's (which can be cheap when on sale) make this a easy choice to not recommend. Get Painkiller: Black Edition instead. It is much more technically sound and has all of the levels.

5/10 some levels unplayable

I had originally recommended this but glitched unfinishable levels sealed the nail in the coffin for this bullsh-t.

This game is very good if you like the old school shooter games. The history is not profound and to be honest, sometimes you ask yourself "wtf this weird girl appeared?". But, when the shooting begins, and the endless hordes of hell starts to appear, you will love seeing demons exploding, impaled enemies on the wall, exciting fights with colossal monsters.

The history could be better. But the gameplay was awesome.

One of the few shiny examples of achievement usage to play more and test yourself more.

Only issue was a lag when you bunny hopp left/right. Considering the fact that you need to bunny hopp in this game - it lead to awkward situations.

PS. Flail from one of the DLCs is better melee weapon than original painkiller.

Mixing Painkiller with Steroids should be bad but not with this game.
Come get some.

One of the worst Linux port, with awefully long loading times and sometimes stuttering gameplay. The game is still fun, if you like the arena-shooter genre. I am still recommending the original Painkiller: Black Edition (which H&D is based on), which has more content and the graphics is still holding up very well (and if you are a Linux user, you can perfectly run it with Wine/Play on Linux).
