    Painkiller is not brilliant in technical terms, but it is addictive as hell if you like pure action first-person shooters. I particularly like the gothic atmosphere, as well as the design of characters, levels and weapons. Besides, it has an online mode, though there are not many people playing.

    The only thing Painkiller gets right (sort of) are the original weapons. Everything else is a complete mess. The game looks better than the original, but that is about the only good thing you can say about the graphics. Blurry textures, horrible screen tearing and slow loading details ruin the experience even further. [September p.88]

    No amount of ragdoll-fumbling can save this Gothic horror show. [Sept 2013, p.94]

    Painkiller Hell & Damnation is a short, unattractive beast that will sink its claws into you if you give it half a chance. But be warned: it could also be a throwback that may fly right over the head of a modern FPS gamer. [September 2013, p76]
