In-depth Review: Painkiller: Hell & Damnation - Electronic Theatre

Originally released in 2004, People Can Fly – of Bulletstorm fame – cut their teeth on Painkiller and its associated expansions. Launching in a different era, Painkiller resonated with the PC gaming first-person shooter (FPS) crowd by delivering them a familiar experience with a modern, mature dressing. Painkiller was a balls-out shooting experience: pull the trigger then ask questions. Eight years later the genre has changed considerably, but the Serious Sam’s and Duke Nukem’s that inspired Painkiller are also making comebacks. (Painkiller Hell & Damnation, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 73/100
