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.
Added A Week In Paradise (AWP)
A much requested feature was for us to add the updates from the very popular AWP mod into the base POSTAL 2 game. This means it is now possible to play POSTAL 2 and Apocalypse weekend in one playthrough. More than just a simple copy and paste, we have tweaked and improved many aspects of the game along the way.
The amount of vocal variety has been massively increased, including race specific dialogue.
5 new voice classes in total! Also adds more situational dialogue for NPC's such as seeing cats, and being on fire. There are even a few more Dude lines now too.
Dismemberment from Apocalypse weekend is now a feature of the entire game.
One of the best new features of the Apocalypse weekend expansion pack was the dismemberment feature, and we have now rolled it back to the entire campaign.
Added new weapons (from the Eternal Damnation total conversion) so now there are more weapons to GO POSTAL with:
Sawn off Shotgun
Greater variation in NPC and Zombie appearance.
NPC’s how carry bags, wear hats, shades and sport some funky hairdos. These are not the somewhat shabby one’s you saw in the original AWP mod but totally new ones made to a much higher standard.
We have also included a much greater variation in Zombies, courtesy again of the Eternal Damnation modification.
Added 68 Steam Achievements!
There is also an in game achievement system for the benefit of future DRM free builds.
Improved widescreen compatibility, including tripled headed solutions.
The widescreen stretching and hud issues are now fixed, and we also made the effort to get ultra wide screen working correctly, should you own an Eyefinity/Surround/Triplehead set up.
Added the much requested FoV slider to the performance menu and V-sync to the video options.
Some minor visual updates.
You can now see through windows, plus some other things here and there.
Added launcher to give the ability to change settings before you start the game.
A small number of people were affected by a problem where the game would crash on launch unless the video settings matched the resolution of their desktop. This will allow users to set these options before they launch the game and save having to dig around configuration files. Furthermore it now allows access to the MP game via the desktop shortcut.
Added an option for micro-transactions!
A strange sequelNeonberry | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all Neonberry's reviews »
Postal 2 stripped all and any seriousness the first game might have had and made an over-the-top violent, borderline surrealistic shooter that probably offends pretty much everyone. It seems like they made the main character as the most badass programmer ever (seriously, this Matrix look and the Grey on the t-shirt is what most young programmers thought was the peaks of cool around that time) and send them off with some menial tasks such as going to the bank or getting milk. The game says it is only as violent as you want it to be, which is true in some way but to be honest to scrape through all the episodes without shooting anyone seems close to impossible. And in the end most of the people who buy Postal 2 are not really into that kind of thing anyway. I understand the irony and how it was meant to show all the annoying little things we have to face in our everyday lives that make everyone a potential time bomb and so on, but to be fair, the game is more ridiculous than funny. If you want to play a mindless shooter with two or three giggles up its sleeve then go ahead, but I would personally save money by not buying it and get something else.

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!
Good game of been Baddjekna | Oct. 6, 2013 | See all djekna's reviews »
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.
