Heaven's Hitman is Back... With a Vengeance. Evil has returned! Demonic powers are manifesting themselves as a myriad of dark creatures, fighting over the fates of imprisoned souls caught in Purgatory. Once again, it is up to Daniel Garner, in the unenviable position of being the Curse of Darkness and the Toy of Light, to fight his way past hordes of demons and fiends.
In the ocean of CoD wannabe shooters Painkiller HD stands out, it's Painkiller with some new content.
The name is creative (Hell & Damnation = HD) and the fact that they emulated the whole game on another engine is quite impressive!
Now, why don't we have all levels from Battle Out Of Hell and standard game in one HD remix? Because you wanna release them as DLC, a bad idea to begin with. I hate DLCs!
Now tell me why in all of hell would you weaken my favorite weapon in the whole game, the Painkiller by half?! Not only is it weaker, but when I shoot the blade (primary + secondary fire) it is slower than it used to be! Why?!
There are no more Havok Physics, no more glitching for me.
But overall this is a good and impressive remake! The highlights are the new graphics, multiplayer (co-op), some new tunes and a new story that is suggesting a sequel.
And Daniel now sounds like Duke Nukem (which I thought was awesome), and what happened to Eve?
Since now the game is on Unreal engine, a modding support would be beyond great! Make it happen guys, please!
Fun gameplay. Good pacing.
Good weapon variety. Good enemy variety. Good level variety.
The difficulty is challenging and satisfying.
I dont bother with the story, its just there to provide context, can just be ignored.
1) Collecting the souls that enemies drop can get tedious. You need to stop and wait for the souls to actually appear.
2) Demon mode can get wasted.
