    For some gamers, bored with the slower pace of games like Far Cry or Rainbow Six, this is a very attractive approach. Gamers who found Serious Sam or Will Rock either shallow or monotonous will definitely find Painkiller to be equally boring. 4 me great shoot

    Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is what it is. So what is it? It’s a low-budget game that would have received the same poor marks at the dawn of this generation as it does at its dusk. The simplistic action can be fun, however, so play it at your own risk.

    Overall it’s a good time, although it feels slightly overpriced for a game that has been out on the PC for over a year (and is currently $10 cheaper there). For those looking for some fast, nostalgic action it’s a solid choice, although a price drop would make it a more enticing package.

    A dated gameplay concept, poor enemy AI and barren environments are the main weaknesses of a game conceived almost ten years ago; nothing much more remains, except the game's budget price.
