Product Description

Sequel to the notorious original, Postal 2 puts players once again in the well-worn shoes of the hair-trigger Postal Dude. Postal 2 operates on Epic's Unreal Warfare Engine and benefits from a host of new features, including fully explorable open-ended 3D environments, innovative first-person shooter action and interaction with well over a hundred unique non-playable characters (NPCs) including Gary Coleman (Arnold from 80s TV show Different Strokes).

Postal 2 is a mindles bagatelle of trekking and slaughtering everybody and everything just for the hell of it, set fire to the shop keeper when you dont pay for your milk, give a good kicking to a helpless vicar who begs for mercy. Terribly slow load zones all over the place. If you want a game with a plot, well this isnt it. If you want a jolly good laugh after a bad day at work, then this is game is ideal; a great stress buster with no thinking involved. If you buy this game, download the 24mb patch from the postal 2 website; load zones are smoothed out, gun hit values are corrected, e.g. the shotgun does it in one, rather than 2-3 shots, the pistol does it in 2. Then there are the rather naughter MOD files available for this game; I'll let you guys check this out. If you havent got a decent graphics card and 512mb RAM, you will struggle running in.

I have owned Postal 2 for months now - and i still play it alot! Not only are the graphics excellent - it has ragdoll physics which only makes it better. Kicking a body down some stairs will prove it...
Characters even have (admittedly limited) facial expressions - and gestures too!
Your task is to survive 5 days - monday to friday. Each with normal tasks to do, such as 'get some Milk', 'Get paid' for example. However, they usually don't end up normal! I'll say no more or i'll spoil the fun!
Perhaps the thing that keeps me playing is the games ability to let you do pretty much whatever you want. Running around killing people and getting up to other naughty things is fine, because you can then cower behind a cupboard and wait for your cop rating to disappear. Unrealistic, i know - but it makes the game more fun.
One of the most important things (for me, anyhow) is the fact that the cops arn't omnipotent - if you hide round a corner and kill some innocent civilian, put your gun away and walk round the corner, any cops there will not know who did it, and will helplessly point their guns at people and sneer at them. Keep your guns holstered and you'll be fine!
Its not unknown for you to walk round a corner and see some fight going on between cops and other people (whoever they may be) that has nothing to do with you. Just wait till one side dies and collect the bounties. You'll have to be quick though, people generally pinch any money droped as soon as they see it.
Ignoring the gameplay and graphics, there are, of course, other sides of Postal 2. Its sense of humour, for example is often...shall we say, dark? Its certainly not politically correct at times, and deserves its 18 rating i guess.

I bought this one on a bit of a chance, if you wanted a comparison the closest I could name would be kingin, however this game is much much more graphic.
On the plus side, great graphics and sound with an excellent dark sense of humour and reasonable plot.
On the down side, some of the missions are a bit to close to the bone, I.e go to the cemetry and urinate on your fathers grave.
As long as you don't take this to seriously it is a great game and being bound and gagged in a gimp suit having to find the dry cleaners half way through had me in stitches.
This is a good buy and if you want a first person shooter that is not a war/alien invasion theme then this is a good crack, but be warned the language is not censored and it is frequent.
Plus for £20 quid, it's a bargain that will provide a challenge to most gamers.

The freedom and lack of limits set by the game is amazing. You can throw petrol on stuff then light a match. You can urinate on people, behead them, and even play football with their heads. But, the most amazing thing in the game is the sick, blood, etc, flows down hills in realtime. The first time you see it you think "That just is not right", but it is so real.
The downside is that you often find, if you explore the levels alot, you will often get stuck, but the game does move you out some of the time, but if your in a gun fight it might not be too useful. Also if you try throwing stuff into a bin, eg in the libray, if you try throwing the book in the book bin, the book may get stuck and in places that you can't reach because of the design of the level.

all i can say is WOW! i got the game, opened it, installed it, and was amazed. The graphics are a huge jump from the first Postal, but the originailty and over elaborance is still there, with the crazy 'chores' the Postal-dude has to carry out, also the appearance of the cows head! i have to say - its a must buy, for those who dont take games serious, and Running with scissors have done a great job!

Verified Purchase
The game comes packaged in a sealed DVD box, containing a humourous manual, registration card and single CD. The game installs without any problems and also installs the level editor (based on the Unreal Tournament engine). The game itself has high quality graphics, including some great facial animations and fire effects.
For the gameplay itself, you play a games programmer who has just been fired, and now has an entire week to run errands for his nagging wife. Highlights include picking up your paycheck, getting Gary Coleman's autograph, and picking up your laundry. You can complete the tasks any way you wish, which means you can complete the game several times in different ways. For example, you can wait in line at the bank to cash your paycheck, you can kill everyone in the line, urinate on the floor to make them run away, or just rob the bank. This gives you great freedom to run around on a killing spree or just play the game like a normal human being. Inevitably, you go on a killing spree, attacking police officers with their own nightsticks, and setting fire to passing dogs with a can of gasoline and some matches.
In general, the game can be lots of fun, but it may not hold your interest for very long and the loading times involved when you are loading up the next segment of level can be a bit of a pain (about 1 minute per level on my 2200 athlon/512mb ram).
This game is great for 15 minutes of fun or just having a laugh with friends trying to find crazy ways of doing missions (we were in stitches with laughter to begin with), but might bore you after a few hours playing.
