Painkiller: Hell & Damnation packs a remake of two bloody shoot-'em-ups into one box. The new do-over comes complete with an Unreal Engine 3-powered experience and tons of content.

Painkiller for the PC offers all the usual fast and frantic Quake-style shoot-em-up action amidst a dark and sinister survival horror setting. The concept of the game sees you explore an assortment of grim environments, shooting anything and everything that moves, before consuming the souls of the dead in order to increase your health. Once you've blasted seven bells out of them, certain objects leave gold coins behind, which enable you to purchase new weapons and things like upgraded speed, as well as maps and numerous other power-ups between levels.

Battle out of Hell delivers more of the above in spades, and in total you get 14 levels to shoot your way through and over 30 of the nastiest, most hellish enemy types you can imagine to kill off..

Obviously no game such as this would be complete without a range of LAN/online-based multiplayer modes - the fact that the game's developers are Quake world champions ensures Painkiller doesn't disappoint.

This is one for the hardcore, so don't be expecting kill-streak bonuses, auto-heal, AK-47s, rocket launchers or any of that other stuff for softies. It's brutal!
