Product Description

Product Description

In Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend, you've got a ridiculous expansion to the Postal 2 single-player experience. New areas, new weapons and new chances for mayhem! Just have a little fun, or go Postal!

From the Manufacturer

Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend is an expansion to the Postal 2 single player experience. This expansion pack requires either Postal 2 or Postal 2: Share The Pain. Apocalypse Weekend Features:
  • 20 New Maps--Visit all new areas of Paradise including the Elephant Preserve and the Taliban Training Camp.
  • New Melee Weapons--Hack your enemies to meaty bits! Includes the amazing boomerang Machete, the Scythe and the head-popping Sledgehammer.
  • New Characters--New enemies abound, including MadCow-infected Tourettes Zombies, Killer Attack Cats and suspiciously Gary Coleman-esque Demonic Midgets.
  • Story Driven Gameplay--Amusing cinemas advance the "story". Look Ma, we made a game with a plot! Sort of.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Postal 2 was an awesome game but by now...it is really too late for an expansion pack! The hunger for this game died over a year ago!

I finished this expansion in under 4 hours. YIKES!!! $20 for a measely 4 hours. It has limited re-play value too! Once you have played it, you have done it all. Postal 2 was fun to play again. AW is NOT!!! Why? Because it is too linear! Your enemy attacks are scripted. Basically, once you enter a certain section of the game, the attacks come. PREDICTABLE! Once you play it, you know when the attacks are going to come by heart. No surprises, no shock or thrill, no point! Just repetitive gameplay! Stand here, shoot at enemy - wash, rinse, and repeat!

The enemey AI is the same as Postal 2. They are not intelligent or clever in tactics. They are just aggressive and attack in groups. Go slow, take your time, focus on killing one at a time then continue on and you can easily beat the game.

There are numerous bugs and errors. You can't pee on your enemies. In Postal 2 you could. This is an admitted goof. They sent it off to manufacture before testing the most obvious things! This tells me RWS really slipped up! Your machine gun is still weak and inaccurate. The pistol is much more accurate and deadly, especially at long ranges! How silly is that? You get many General Protection Fault crashes and then have to restart the game. Sometimes I would load into a level only to fall through the floor of the level and die. No fix. I had to start the game from the beginning! There are other glitches and oddities too.

I am not the only one suffering from this. Check out the forums and you can see numerous complaints and RWS even acknowledges the screw ups. In their defense, these things happen and RWS will get a patch out I am sure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Now it is a real shooter... January 4, 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This addon continues the week of the Postal Dude. You wake up with a head wound which sometimes gives you some strange illusions of undead Gary Colemans attacking you. However, this addon forces you to play the game like most other shooters. In the main game you had the choice if you are violent or not. In AW you definitely have to fight some enemies - it's part of the story. And you fight a lot of zombies - some infected beef has turned a lot of people into zombies with the mad-cow tourrette syndrom. These zombies can only be destroyed if you destroy their heads - sometimes a bit different because there are too many people shooting at the zombies so that they lose their had(so they walk around headless) and the heads disappear. Really, it's sometimes annoying that there are soldiers shooting at the zombies with a machine gun(with no success...) and also attack the player.
Some of the jumping scenes are not easy to finish. And this time you have to fight an final enemy - be surprised!

The best thing on AW is that you need it for the AW7-mod by Kamek. With this mod you can use the nice new weapons of AW in the week from monday to friday - and you can finally chop of limbs.

Overall AW has not too much in common with the original game and yes, it's a bit short - however you can have some fun with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Silly & asinine, but loads of fun... December 12, 2006

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, yes, I know, the game has myriad flaws but it's so damn fun to play. The tourette zombies should be a game of their own. I laughed so hard I thought my sides would split. Now, if you're looking for a serious game, this ain't it. Go buy whatever is new and homogeneous. However, if you're depraved and warped, this game is for you. Then again, if you enjoy Postal 2 in the first place you must have a skewed sense of humor to begin with (not a bad quality in my book) so this tongue-in-cheek waste of time will cure what ills you. Buy it or not.

4.0 out of 5 stars A touch too short and linear, but overall fun August 13, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This expansion is too short, and is far more linear than the main game. Having said that, it was a fun play, with neat new features. Just be aware that if you enjoy it, you will probably play it thru in 1-2 sessions.
