Postal 2 is an ultraviolent first-person shooter which is not recommended for children or does who are seeking political careers. The game isn't not so bad, if you don't make its many shortcomings and annoying parts. Postal 2 has been banned from several countries because of its insane violence.

The missions in Postal 2 are everyday things. The game starts on Monday and continues till the end of the week. Your first mission is to pick up milk. There are 3 ways you can do this, first way is by buying taking the milk, wait in the line, or you can take the milk and choose not to pay the counter and go out, or the wait that people like, kill everyone and pay, or go out after killing everyone. Other missions are such pick up laundry, buy a new Christmas Tree, go to the bank, and other not normal missions. This is not ordinary FPS. The town is big and there is a fair amount of different looking people, but no children. You find cops that want to kill you, but its easy escaping them. The game can be completed without killing or hurting anyone. One big problem are the load zones. Every time you see a tunnel, there should be a sign, which says load zone. If you pass through, the game starts loading and at the end saves your progress. This is frequent and sometimes is too much, but it's a good way to escape from enemies. You will have about 5 groups of enemies, cops not included. There are crazy butchers, save the tree, and some others.



The game has its moments with the humor in every cutscenes and when you talk to some people. Postal 2 has some great weapons which happen to be with civilians, and sometimes the cops. You might see a guy holding a bazooka, or a machine gun. There are also weapons which you can throw. Like the katana. As I said, this is a game that you can wait in line. There are many when you go to church, or to the bank, and other places. It's not obligated to wait in line but if you start killing people, other people will shoot back. Also some people may not die. The game has little but annoying bugs. If you are trying to be smart and jump over the load zone tunnel, you might end up in nothing. And when you trying to kill many people at ones, the game might sometimes slow down or closes. In some missions you are forced to kill a lot of people, but you have to be careful. You can also wee outside, and on graves, and on people too.

The city music of Postal is awful. It's basically the same every time you're running in the city. When you're in particular places, the music changes, but it's still horrible. There isn't really much to over joy in missions. If you have Halo, stick to that. There aren't killing people, just getting item to find someone. The game rarely tells you to kill, killing is optionally. Graphics not bad as sound. People look good and environments fairly good. Postal's guns are remarkable after all. When you use guns when you can zoom, like snipers or rifles, try making a head shot. The person you hit in the head, the head won't blow. Ok blood defiantly. There is a lot of blood, but this is very bad for an FPS.



Postal 2 isn't an awful game by any means. The game is pretty funny, and crazy stuff will keep you entertained. But it's not a good FPS, though. Postal 2 has unique things but most things aren't fleshed out well. It's mostly hard to recommend given to it's ultraviolent and insane action. Still it can be worth a rental, but nothing more.
