3.0 out of 5 stars Only my weapon understands me...... April 19, 2003
Spend a week with a nutcase in Postal 2. Complete with a "Jackass" style warning label on the loading screen, developer Running With Scissors (RWS) gambles that they can stuff a game full of enough blood and gore to guarantee an assault by family-values groups, yet still make enough after the lawsuits to turn a profit. Let me be clear upfront, this game definitely delivers in the sick and twisted department and deserves the "M" Mature rating more than any game I've seen. Postal 2 is not designed for kids, but just like trashy rated R movies, I'm sure this game will be appreciated more by kids than adults.
In order to push the envelope (snicker) RWS enlists the services of the Postal Dude; a goateed Gen-X slacker in a Matrix-style trenchcoat that starts the morning by kicking the dog and shooting the air conditioner for making too much noise. His nagging trailer-trash wife/girlfriend sends him on a list of ordinary missions like shopping for milk, cashing a paycheck, or picking up a christmas tree (in July), yet the situations our buddy Postal Dude finds himself involved become anything but ordinary.
You see, Mr. "Dude" just wants to keep to himself and get through life without being hassled, yet all these people just won't leave him alone. He goes to his job at RWS and a bunch of video-game protestors bust in and start blasting away. He goes to the mall to get a book signed by Gary "I ain't going the the joint again!" Coleman and cops turn the place into a war zone. He goes to ... his dad's grave (seriously) and he's captured by a bunch of rednecks, locked in a brewery basement, and turned into a gimp - Pulp Fiction style.
Politically-correct this game is not and you can tell the developers had fun dreaming up scenarios that many will find offensive. Animal-lover?

First off, I'm going to say something that I am sure someone else writing a review for this game has already said, "This is NOT a game for the faint of heart..." If there were a definition for, "violent" or "controversial" this would be it. You are a white [man] known as Mr. Peepshell, or the, "Postal Dude,"whom lives in a trailer behind someone's house and your soul task throughout the game is to run around a city commiting tasks that you would think to be simple for your .... wife. Freedom-wise, this game outdoes any of its predecessors tenfold. You may go into ANY building, interact with ANYONE you see on screen, and do virtually anything you want, from sticking a cat on the barrel of your gun to use it as a silencer, to urinating all over the place in some poor fool's house. This game pushes new boundaries in ignoring what the rest of the world thinks. You can pour gasoline on someone, light a match, throw it on them and they will be engulfed in a ball of flame and slowly burn to a charred corpse, crawling on the ground crying desperately for help. Even kick bodies and watch them flop around realistically, splattering a grotesque decal of blood on the wall. Walk into convenience stores and kick merchandise into people's faces, only to soon be attacked by enraged policeman. Something I may need to mention is that this game is extremely racist. The convenience store is controlled by a bunch of arab women who attack you if you decide to go into the "employees only" section. Gay dance clubs are strewn throughout with in which you can interact with some, let's just say, "interesting" NPC's. Anything you would not want your innocent little darling of a child to see is thrown in this game tenfold; do not expect anything wholesome. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent game, horrible load times April 21, 2003
By A Customer
I got my copy of Postal 2 a few days ago, and have played it through about halfway. Overall, the game is fun, but there is one big drawback - the load times! It seems like every 2 or 3 minutes, I'm waiting for a section of the map to load. This can take up to a minute and a half, even though I turned down some of the settings and am running it on a 2 Ghz system.
The graphics are good, if a little repetitive (there are only about 5 or 6 different NPCs, they just have different colored outfits on, and some of the indoor environments are kind of boring), and the gameplay is great. I found the controls easy and how you interact with the environment good. But, you can't really "go postal", because it's too hard to kill your enemies. It takes several shots to kill anyone, even if you shoot them in the head. In fact, it doesn't seem to matter where you shoot them. I found myself running away most of the time, just 'cause it's easier.
Overall - A fun game, but the load times pretty much ruin it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Eh... Why? May 27, 2003
Everything Im about to say concerning Postal 2, you've probably already read. The shock value of lighting innocent people on fire and going on random ... crazy rampages ebbs away rather quickly. And when I say LONG load times, I mean exactly that. The gameplay map is divided into about 8 or 9 main sections. You traverse this map section by section. Everytime you wish to travel to a new part of the map you get stuck between areas with load times that can last up to 5 minutes. - Yep, I said 5 minutes. I ran the game on a 1.8 gz cpu with 512 ram. - Still took a ridiculous amount of time to load. The constant 'hurry up and wait' in this game extinguishes a gamer's lust for blood and nulls any interest you may have had for its mundane storyline. Considering how brilliant and user-friendly today's FPS can be, this game has no excuse for being so outmoded in its playability. 3 years ago this game would have knocked my socks off. Now it comes across as too little to late and so much wasted potential.

Most of this game was a bore. It was funny at times but really a complete waste of time to play. Do not pay more than 2 or 3 bucks for this game.
