Painkiller – Hell And Damnation review

The latest incarnation of Painkiller attempts to avoid the possibility of being weaker than the original game by being the original game, plus its first expansion, all spruced up and ready to party like it’s 2004.

Take Your Medicine – Painkiller: Hell & Damnation Out Now

We live in strange times. Case in point: Painkiller: Hell & Damnation exists.

Still Killing Pain After All These Years: Painkiller Reboot

Back in the old days, when only 12 people read RPS, each and every one of them hated me to the core because I said I didn't think the original Painkiller was a very good videogame. I wonder what happens when I say that now? I think we can all agree that these long years of expansion packs and expandydandelions haven't exactly done great favours…
