Admit it. You got a queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach when SEGA announced that Monolith's follow-up to the Xbox 360 launch title, Condemned, would have multiplayer modes. This is a game where beating possessed vagrants to death with a blunt object is the norm. With the online multiplayer in Condemned 2 you'll do the same, only this time that bum will be controlled by your friend.
Condemned 2 sports four different multiplayer modes that can be tackled with up to eight people. The first two are the ever present deathmatch and team deathmatch. The rule set is one we're all familiar with, but the gameplay certainly isn't. IGN started their session by hopping into a small arena free for all match in a map called Hangover. It takes place in a stage based on the opening moments of the game. You begin with just your hands to attack and defend with and in this map there were few weapons of opportunity to be had. A pile of bricks sat atop a staircase and a metal bat could be had, but IGN spent the majority of the time punching wildly.
