Description

Share the Pain combines the original Postal 2 single player game with new multiplayer gameplay. Owners of the original Windows version can upgrade for less than $10.

The singleplayer mode has faster loading times, a few new areas (Underhub and Tora Bora), a Weapon of Mass Destruction and new difficulty levels (Insano and They Hate Me). For the multiplayer part, there are four modes: DeathMatch, Team DeathMatch, Snatch (CTF with a girl instead of a flag) and Grab in which players battle to collect a series of bags. Unusual player models include characters such as Gary Coleman, a priest or a fundamentalist Muslim. Active sessions can be found using the built-in server browser or you can add bots to your own multiplayer game. Additionally, new maps can be constructed with the included level editor.
