See a cold, dark day in Hell Wars

Painkiller's Xbox sequel reveals more of the shades of Hades

Directly from the place between heaven and hell, comes a phalanx of demonically dark new screens from DreamCatcher's Xbox-only FPS, Painkiller: Hell Wars.

Building on the series' PC past by including various levels of hell from Battle Out of Hell and the original package, Hell Wars also features numerous trademark weapons including the Stakegun and the bladed and brutal Painkiller.

With the Havok physics engine underpinning the head popping and the prospect of five multiplayer games for use over Xbox Live, Hell Wars might not be a genre-redefining goth shooter but it should be hellishly good fun.
