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!

It's hard to believe Postal 2 was released 13 years ago. 13 years! While the game shows its age today, I can only see it as a high point back then. Running With Scissors is still supporting this game after all this time. That's understandable, given this is the only successful project from them. However, it also shows the love the developers have with their own work and that's awesome. In 2015 an expansion was released, called Paradise Lost, and it keeps the same quality level of the main game (maybe even more). Postal 2 is coherently known to be silly and gruesome. The humor is awesome, and it even features Gary Coleman in ways that made me drop tears from laughing. What's cool too is that this game is still fresh and unique today. You control Postal Dude and your goal is to survive five days (one week if you play the longer campaign), doing simple things like getting milk and returning a book. Of course it's not that easy, and things quickly take turns to the often bizarre but always funny situations. It's your choice how gruesome the game will be, because you can complete it without killing anyone. Overall, it's a nice game that is more worth to play today than it has ever been.
...That is, if you use mayhem. It may all seem normal for the Postal guy. Just fetch something and do chores. However, POSTAL 2 was never meant for such simplicity. Quite often, players will indulge themselves by commencing all sorts of indescribable chaos in their environment, most of which I cannot explain in this review. What I can say is, it's different from the normal video game due to the lack of a plot (not like POSTAL 2 needed it) but substitutes it with the "free will" in unleashing devastation, or you can avoid this. It's all up to players. With the Steam version, there's also a workshop which brings back cut content and new ones as well, such as weapons. As a conclusion, only get this game if you don't want to play as a hero and experience a game similar to GTA but with no objectives.
Postal 2 takes a lot of funny (and some terrible) references from the early 2000s and lets you do whatever you want to them, including light them on fire, excrete bodily fluids from your bladder onto them and of course shoot them. However, although this is fun at first, for someone with not a lot of time to play, this gets boring quickly, as I feel unfulfilled while doing this. I feel no progression, no movement, and overall, I feel like I'm not getting anything from the time that I'm spending on this game. Others say it's SR and GTA-esque but I disagree, I feel the game has not aged well, and the loading screens take a long time. I spent $2 on it, and so, I'm not too upset about losing that, but in the end, I did lose that money. My vote is to avoid the game and spend your time on something a little newer, with more story
It's two in the morning, and I know that there are more productive things to do than shove a shotgun up the rear end of a cat. In fact, I have a book report due tomorrow. And, yet, I have made the conscious decision to immerse myself in a digital world of profanity, urine, explosions, dismemberment, and Gary Coleman. Whether or not I regret this decision is something I'll determine when I receive my failing grade on my book report in the flesh, but for now, Postal 2 acts as the perfect amoral form of escapism.
Guys from Running With Scissors made something amazing. You thought first Postal game was sick? Nope. Postal 2 is definition of this word. First of all, you need to have some sense of humour - kind of sick, who won't be offended at every little thing. If you met this criteria you must get this game. It's full of wrong things. Fun things. Every bad things you always were doing to people in your imagination now can come true. You can kick people. You can chop their heads and kick their heads. You can chop their heads, set them on fire and kick fire heads to your dog, which will be set on fire while playing with this funny head. You can "golden shower" people and kill them with your special gun with cat silencer.
