"The most hyper-violent game I’ve seen since "Soldier of Fortune."" - ActionTrip.com
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!

Absolute classic, unique in terms of atmosphere and the lack of political correctness, certainly not the title for the people without the distance (it insults religious feelings ... and all others too). It is not easy to find a similar title in this respect. In today's world, it may seem incredibly simple in terms of the mechanics and the whole gameplay, but remember that the game is very old. I finished it a dozen years ago and I was happy to do it again (and again and again...) when I bought it on Steam.
I find this game kind of sick, yet it is oddly fun despite being a first-person shooter. A game type I don't normally enjoy so much, but this game is just so funny with its somewhat crass humor and violence that I couldn't stop laughing long enough to give it any less than 5 stars. Something you won't see me doing too often with first person shooters if I do review theme, because well, I just tend to not like them much though I try my best to be unbiased when I do. This one though was just too funny to pass up when a friend had me try it and I found it on sale. Even at full price though it is worth it, especially to first person shooter lovers who enjoy crass humor.
This game is hilarious, yes. You are going through 7 days of a game level (if you choose to play a whole week). The first 5 days are semi-open world gameplay, with loading screen everytime you entered a certain area. You are tasked with different tasks in every of those 5 days. You can beat, kill and chop up people, but beware of the police. The gameplay is pretty fun, there are action and platforming (like the one in the lab), and at the weekend days, you will face a different day than the rest. These in these weekend days, the game started to linear (not the bad kind of linear), and I think this game copied the original Silent Hill a bit, in the hospital level, where the hospital regularly switch itself from an ordinary hospital into a scary absurd and abandoned place. There is some element that bugged me, which is the weapon selection system, which is clunky. But overall, this is fun and hilarious.
This game was made by a developer I've never heard of. It's really kind of simplistic. Yet it is so satisfying. There are also some really great mods for this that add a couple days. The weapons are satisfying. You can pee on people or animals to set them on fire. Very satisfying. There are multiple ways to accomplish a day's tasks. Sometimes stealth is more prudent than having every cop in town chasing you. This is not quite an open world game but it comes close. The game allows some room for being inventive to solve problems.
Thinking back to this game, I'm glad my parents never learned to speak English, or looked at the screen, when i played this. I actually had an aunt, who thought Contra was sick... Postal 2 is the game for those people, who are bored with the mild violence of the GTA series, and want to try out something, that is not so innocent. Well, look no further, here you can...buy groceries, wait in line, collect signatures, and return a book to a library. At least, these are the mission objectives, but in the meantime, the whole time of paradise is at your mercy(5000 and dropping fast). You can piss on people, play football with heads, set a club on fire, use cats as silencers, and do so many crazy things, that i can't even write all here! The humor is dark, as can be expected, but if you are in the right mood, it is pretty hilarious. Just don't take this too seriously. Really, it's sad when that happens...
