    Oh that's the ticket

    My god, the game just gets better and better. A straight-on continuation from the last, incredible game. I can't get enough of it. I eagerly await the next in the series. My god, this is a must-have for any PC library.... Read Full Review

    WARNING! This game has VERY FOUL Language! I have little kids and when I started playing this game, I had to turn the sound off. Everytime your guy gets hit he either says F*** or S***. Then the tasks that you have t... Read Full Review

    I would anticipate that the ratings for this game will go from the very low to the very high. Sure, it has bad language but the box and opening screens warn of that. It is totally violent but to have violence simply for ... Read Full Review

    Postal 2 is more of an anti-social behavior simulator than an actual game. If you accept this, then you'll like it.

    At the risk at being judgmental, I wonder if Gamespot gave Postal 2 a low score to cover their butts and avoid the controversy of plugging such a violent game. The final product is actually amusing, and fun to play. Th... Read Full Review

    First off, you will need a good PC to enjoy this game. I have a heavy duty gaming rig so I had no problems whatsoever with it. However, my friend on a Pentium III 256 MB of RAM and a crappy to ok graphics card couldnt r... Read Full Review

    Postal 2 is a very unique game in a few different ways. While the concept is nothing new, this game does bring some innovative ideas and concepts to the FPS realm. At first glance, this game is a violent, vulgar FPS ... Read Full Review

    Pros: Often funny, occasionally hilarious, deceptively tough. Cons: Load times, little replay value.

    Ok. The bottom line on this game is that if you are not the type to enjoy a good laugh every once and a while, don't even pick up the box to look at. To give this game a serious review is absurd. This game is purely a bi... Read Full Review

    Postal 2 is racist, homophobic, disgusting, and unfunny. This game is hardly even worth torrenting.

    Pros and Cons: + Total freedom to kill anybody however you want to. + Most weapons are fun to use with secondary fire modes. + Surprisingly well-structured gunplay. + Free to download. Free to play. - Graphics a... Read Full Review
