Postal is a disgusting, vulgar, and offense game. And I LOVE IT!!!
A little while back, ''Running With Scissors'' released ''Postal''. The game is without a doubt ''King Of The Most Condemned Game'' OF ALL TIME! The game was met with: Condemning by the U.S. Senate, banning in 10 countries, law suit by the postal service and was pulled off store shelves. Now, Postal 2 is out and Postal 1 just might lose its throne.
Now on with the game: Postal 2. You assume the role of just an Average Joe with 19 errands strewn throughout a town in a 5-day period. The game tells you what to get and THAT IS IT. All of the rest of the game is yours to toy with. Want to gun down everyone and everything in your path? Go for it. Want to be an arsonist and torch the town? Be my guest. Want to beat a man to death with a shovel and then urinate on his lifeless body? You need therapy, but nothings stopping you from doing it.
Of course the game would be boring if the populace just let you raise hell, so, the game punishes you for your wrong-doings. If you commit a crime and the Feds see it, they'll be on you like white on rice. People can run should you attack them, or fight back. The game is only as offensive, bloody, vulgar and violent as you make it.
Now, just doing the errands and nothing else is like opening a bag of chips, eating only one, and then closing the bag. So, to help coax you toward the dark-side, the game offers you a slew of firepower to strike up World War III. Such weapons includes: shovel, pistol, shotgun, stun gun, hunting rifle, gasoline can pair of scissors, and no joke, an anthrax infected cow head. Lovely
The game doesn't try to be something it's not; Postal 2 is vulgar, (highly) offensive, (brutally) violent, game that shows scenes so gruesome I can't even HINT to them here. But it's FUN pure and simple. On to the specs:
Nothing ground breaking, but still nice. The blood and rag doll physics are really cool.
The games weak spot. The voices are decent and the dialogue is pretty nice. But the music is average.
The controls are fully customizable. 'Nuff said.
Game play: 10/10
Playing this game makes me feel like Jason Voorhees from ''Friday The 13th''. Your a one man army who is free to slaughter anything you want!
BUY THIS GAME NOW. I can't recommend it enough. this game is an absolute blast to play.
Rating: 5.0 - Flawless
