Ten years after his Apocalypse Weekend escapades, The Postal Dude finally returns!
Paradise Lost is a full-fledged expansion pack for POSTAL 2 continuing the saga of the POSTAL series. Join the Dude as he ventures back into his former hometown embarking on a quest to find his lost dog. Not all is at it seems, as the once tranquil (relatively speaking) town and its citizens have been transformed in the wake of the nuclear destruction. Dare to enter the varied Zones as you cross the Arid Desert, trek through the dense Rainy Foliage, freeze your nuts off in the Nuclear Winter, and roam under the Ashen Skies. Meet the many mysterious factions comprised of the towering, the miniature, the zombified, and everything in between and use your radiant people skills to attempt to ally yourself with their enigmatic leaders, ranging from former child stars to terrifying demonic udder-wielding beasts! Fierce Lawmen, crazed Bandits, deranged Doomsday Survivalists, and a phallic child's toy mascot await. Do whatever it takes to survive! Wait in lines! Use vending machines! Buy toilet paper! Journey to where it all began to rescue your loyal companion!
Prepare to delve into the post-apocalyptic world of Paradise Lost!

Paradise Lost is one of the best DLCs ever produced and that is saying a lot, considering how much good DLC is out there. Proving once again how dedicated they are to their craft, Running with Scissors releases this excellent downloadable content twelve years after the original game's release when most developers would be working on Postal 6 so that they could milk the first games' success for what it's worth. While it may not change your mind if you hated the style of Postal 2, it will definitely make you appreciate the game's strengths since it draws inspiration for some of the best ideas in the vanilla game. Not that there are many stories to speak of, but I would rather not spoil how much this DLC does right and let you see it for yourself. If you have any fleeting interest in this franchise, then I urge you to buy this content, especially considering how cheap it is.
This DLC is just as impolitically correct and filled to the brim with crude humor and vulgar language like the original. It even in the intro jokes about the rather dreadful Postal 3, which was not developed by Running with Scissors but a Russian-based game company called Akella, with the events of that travesty being a nightmare the Postal Dude had while in a coma. And if you thought Paradise was a hell hole before, then you ain't seen nothing yet as its gotten worse after the nuclear bomb he "borrowed" for taking out a rival game company went off. And now his dog, Champ, is lost somewhere in this madness and it is up to Postal Dude to face even more insanity then ever before. All in all, this is a rather good example of DLC done right and it should be bought by those who own the game on Steam, which is still supported by the developers to this day.
This is Postal 2! So impolitically correct, lot of stupid humor, lot of guns and stuff to do. It's exactly what Postal 2 was, a more of the same with some hilarious things. Give it a try if you loved the base game.
