It's rather surprising that a remake in Unreal Engine 3 can breathe so much new life into Painkiller, a game that's all about death.

But that's what The Farm 51 are attempting to do in Painkiller: Hell and Damnation, based on the 2004 original and its expansion by Bulletstorm developers People Can Fly.
