Painkiller MP Demo May 3

Painkiller multiplayer demo due May 3 on GameSpot has word to expect the multiplayer demo for Painkiller on May 3: "The demo will allow players to blow each other to bits in two modes: the self-explanatory Deathmatch and Voosh, a Deathmatch variation where players are given random weapons--but unlimited ammo--for a limited time. It will also feature two maps: DM-Sacred and DM-Cursed and will include all the updates and optimizations from the upcoming 1.1 patch."

To actually answer the question about Multiplayer...it is great DM gameplay that is very very similar to Quake DM gameplay. Personally I don't like UT2k4 straight DM, its boring and the weapons are not suited well for it at all.

As I said Painkiller is very reminiscent of Quake DM right down to Rocket/Chain and the Lightning gun are king. Control those weapons, and control the Quad if key to winning. Rocket jumping is also back with a vengeance.

Most of the levels are best for 2v2 or 4v4. A few others are best with 4 to 8 players. Just my opinion but pure deathmatch has not been this good since Quake 2. There are many great MP games out there these days and most are focused on teamplay, and the Deathmatch is just not as good.

If you like old run and gun FPS for both SP and MP(Quake, Serious Sam), then Painkiller is the answer.

I will say that Painkiller needs some more work on the netcode, it can be flakey at times.
