Painkiller is a first-person shooter set in the sinister world of gothic horror. Daniel Garner is having a bad day. On his way downtown, he dies in a car accident and is not permitted past the pearly gates. In order to get back into the Almighty's good graces, he becomes Painkiller and must mow down Satan's minions in whatever lair, tomb, or residence they may be lurking.
Dressed in a black overcoat and wearing sunglasses to protect against the sun, Painkiller has earned a reputation for his no-nonsense approach to demon hunting. Yet he also hides a secret: a pact with a demon has granted him special powers at the expense of his humanity.
While based on the 2004 PC hit and its 2006 Xbox follow-up, the PSP version of Painkiller: Hell Wars features new enemies, weapons, levels, and gameplay modes. Also debuting on PSP is Belial, an unlikely companion who helps Daniel Garner as he makes his way to hell. ~ All Game Guide
