Painkiller: Hell Wars images from the inferno

Ever wondered what that place between Heaven and Hell looks like?Perhaps this selection of new shots from the upcoming Xbox FPS Painkiller: Hell Wars gives a glimpse into those otherworldly limbo lands.

Painkiller: Hell Wars follows the story of car crash fatality Daniel Garner who is ever so slightly miffed to discover that his access to heaven is denied and, instead of spending a peaceful eternity hanging with God, finds himself in purgatory facing a seemingly endless wave of demonic gun fodder.

The gothic-styled Hell Wars takes elements from the original Painkiller and the follow-up expansion pack, Battle out of Hell, both of which were released for PC and offered players a chaotic, no-nonsense slaughter-fest that added up to a bloody decent shooter.

If the transition from PC to Xbox is successful, gamers with twitchy trigger-fingers should be well-served by Hell Wars.

I don't have the energy to really hate anything properly. Most things I think are OK or inoffensively average. I do love quite a lot of stuff as well, though.
