    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 ...

    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, ...

    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 gra...

    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 ...

    Pros: Often funny, occasionally hilarious, deceptively tough.<br /> 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...

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