X360A Reviews: Tour de France 2013 and Painkiller: Hell & Damnation

Last year, Britain went nuts for cycling. Between Bradley Wiggins’ victory in the Tour de France and Team GB’s heroics in the Olympic velodrome, for a brief spell the entire country was wrapped in cycle-mania.
Attempting to build on that upswing of interest is Tour de France 2013, the latest in the series from developer Cyanide. But is it any good, or is it as big a pain in the ass as a skinny bike seat?
And next up we have the verdict on Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, a revamp for the retro shooter that sees the game's protagonist having to murder everything in hell. That's right... He has to essentially clear out the fiery realm of demons using an arsenal of hefty firepower. Sounds alright, yeah?
Or does it? Is Painkiller: H&D perhaps a bit too retro? Is it relevant in an era full to bursting with top quality shooters? You know what to do.
