This Xbox version of Painkiller
is a collection of the best levels from the original game and its expansion pack, Battle Out of Hell
. As Daniel Garner, a once normal man that died in a car accident, you have been sent to Purgatory during a war between Heaven and Hell. You'll blast your way through hordes of monsters as you fight for your purification.
Like the original game, Painkiller: Hell Wars
is a retro shooter that plays very similarly to Quake
. Your weapons don't need to be reloaded, and switching from weapon to weapon is very quick (no weapon switching animations), a nod to the original Quake
. You can collect souls from your fallen enemies to gain health, and collecting 66 souls will turn you into an invincible demon that can instantly kill his enemies with a screen-blurring projectile. If you do well, you'll even be rewarded with power-ups in the form of tarot cards.
