POSTAL 2 Complete
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Live a week in the life of "The Postal Dude"; a hapless everyman just trying to check off some chores. Buying milk, returning an overdue library book, getting Gary Coleman's autograph, what could possibly go wrong?
Blast, chop and piss your way through a freakshow of American caricatures in this darkly humorous first-person adventure. Meet Krotchy: the toy mascot gone bad, visit your Uncle Dave at his besieged religious cult compound and battle sewer-dwelling Taliban when you least expect them! Endure the sphincter-clenching challenge of cannibal rednecks, corrupt cops and berserker elephants. Accompanied by Champ, the Dude's semi-loyal pitbull, battle your way through open environments populated with amazingly unpredictable AI. Utilize an arsenal of weapons ranging from a humble shovel to a uniquely hilarious rocket launcher.
Collect a pack of attack dogs! Use cats as silencers! Piss and pour gasoline on anything and everyone! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!
Aggressive vs. Passive: POSTAL 2 is only as violent as you are.
One large non-linear world.
Explore the world and accomplish your errands at your own pace.
Interact with Non-Player Characters
Survival Mode: If you choose to play as a pacifist, you will still have to deal with the NPC's who may also go POSTAL!
Based on the Unreal Editor: Easy to use and very powerful, with many mods already available from the community.

This game ticks quite a few 'isms' boxes, so any PC gamer (and by that I mean Politically Correct) who is sensitive to any issues regarding race, sexuality, religion, politics, etc. might as well stop reading now.
Postal was a darkly humoured, shallow, isometric shooter that was catapulted into headlines for the games premise and content, during a period where ‘corrupting video game violence’ was being picked up by the mainstream media. The game relied heavily on its controversial content to push sales, as the game itself was nothing special.
Postal 2 not only went in a 3D FPS direction, they ramped up the offensiveness.
Postal 2 is crass, low brow, toilet humour, deliberately intended to offend the more sensitive types. A middle fingered F.U. by RWS to those blinkered souls that blame society’s ills on video games and try to ban them.
It is the video game equivalent of an 80’s low budget, shock/exploitation movie, not just pushing boundaries, but walking all over them. Once you peel away the shock factor though, what you have is a very average game, with very little substance, that adds nothing new to the table.
However…. Who needs substance? As with the movies, it does what it aims to do well. If you find extreme, over the top, immature gutter humour the likes of South Park, Brickleberry or Drawn Together funny, then this is the game for you. In no other game I have seen can you pour petrol over people, flick matches at them to light it, then as they crawl on the floor burnt to a crisp, unzip your fly and urinate on them to put the flames out. Or decapitate a passer by with a spade and play golf with their head. Or even stun gunning someone until they urinate themselves. There are many moments in Postal 2 when I was said to myself ‘Did they actually put that in?’
None of it is done in a serious way as it is far too over the top, it is not gritty, or gloomy, or oppressive in any way, it pokes fun at itself!
Age hasn’t been too kind to the game. The graphics are very stiff and the level design isn’t great, especially the loading segments in-between. But this is a 10 year old game, so you can forgive a few limitations.
I think this is a great game, but not a favourite. It is the kind of game you have a laugh about with your mates.
A very fun game, which can be also thoughtfulZombine3D | Oct. 20, 2013 | See all Zombine3D's reviews »
Don't get me wrong, this game is hilariously over the top and politically incorrect but it does everything in a pleasing manner. The gore is cartoonish, the discrimination is a parody of itself but what makes this game shine - is you. In rreality the game is only as violent as you will let it be and same goes for other aspects!

lets be honest this is Brutal game about moment probable we all have but dont end up with game solution, but back to game, in time of writing my review, graphic is probably over dated, in all way game have a soul(well dark one). i enjoy playing it but chose less destructive way to finish levels. Not for everyone, and for one it is still need dose of black humor to understanding it
An interesting experienceRoryyyyyyyyyy | Sept. 27, 2013 | See all Roryyyyyyyyyy's reviews »
This game is great fun, with a hilarious plot. The game is basically a week in the life of the 'postal dude'. To progress you have to complete the to do list or every day of the week. These chores are pretty average but every day at least one goes wrong, resulting in you making an enemy of certain groups of people.
There is a massive variety of weapons, meaning you can have some good old controversially sadistic fun, with some ridiculous outcomes. These range from a can of gasoline and a shovel to a napalm launcher and your own urine. Yes, there's an action to unzip yourself and urinate wherever you want. If you leave it out, you'll get humerous comments about it, or you'll be set upon by the police. It's also handy if you get set on fire to put yourself out fast.
The graphics are nothing special, and the gameplay in some places is not the most natural feeling, but it is still great fun regardless. For this price it is definitely worth it, and will surely give you a fair few hours of entertainment. It is not particularly a largely impressive game, but it is one that no matter how you look at it you will have a good laugh playing, and won't get bored.

I once owned this back in the day and I love the fact it was banned in several countries because of the OTT Violence, the main key features are sticking a cat on the end of a gun, killing Gary Coleman and the Expansion where you wake up in a hospital with a lot of psychotic undead Gary Coleman's.
This game also has racist remarks which some cultures may find disturbing including suicidal women in burkha's
Get the double pack which includes the first Postal, pity the pack did not include Postal 3.
