Ugh i bought this twice or thrice in the past on Steam sales and ended up refunding it, and that's before knowing their alignment.

Not a good game :/

It's a fun game, despite not getting the achievement after playing it in Jesus mode (no kills)

Read the title as Portal 2 and was excited lol. Postal 2 is a shit game made by an even worse developer. Fuck them. Even free is too much for this game.

First Postal game is genuinely fun game (at least for some time), go play it if you haven't yet! Seems like it's also free! Gonna play it for sure.

Second Postal is garbage. Humor in the game is funny if you are 13. But...

Gun play is extremely tedious, it seems like all the weapons are powered the same and doesn't really matter if you use M16 or pistol against the enemies. I did like the gas canister weapon, that's pretty much only cool thing about this game.

Game world is empty and boring, there is very little reason to explore the city. Graphics, AI and physics are also shit tier in this game. And all the missions are pretty much the same. Go do mundane errand and get attacked by group of people from jihadist to cops to angry protesters. This would be fine but since the gun play is boring the missions get old really fast.

Can't believe I actually played through the whole game back in the day.

Ah yes, I remember being 12 and enjoying this game.
So... what's the deal with this game? lol
It's entire shtick is that being racist, sexist and poking at taboos without anything to say is funny because it's so darn shocking.

It's the act of doing something because you can without a reason to do it.

Muslims are terrorists running the 7/11, Women are extreme caricatures, you shove shotguns up cats asses as a silencer, you can piss whenever you want.

Mechanically the game isn't even sound, the entire point of the game is to see what shit they can get away with because they felt it was important to do so.

The entire point of the game is to shock. The gameplay is just something in there to provide more ways to shock.

The game purposely asks you to be violent, and makes the game dull and even worse than the shit gameplay already is to play non violent.
The game can be completed without killing anyone. You can, however, make everybody kill each other. Playing this way turns the last day into a stealth game.

A free game is still a free game and if Era doesn't like it it's usually an even better reason to grab it, lol.

I mean, people are free to like what they like, but saying "Era doesn't like this game because it's blatantly pro-GamerGate and the developers are extremely transphobic, so I'll probably love it!" is not a great look.

Should I get this game? Is it fun to play?

EDIT: spare me the political part please, dev is bad I get it.
It has it's humor going on for it. It passed as edgy when the game came out but it's fairly outdated by now (getting raped by hillbillies, grotch doll going berserk, etc). But if it's your cup of tea then go for it. It's not long game so if the jokes are funny to you then you might be able to stand for the bad game play ... but at least the game is more fun then the movie by Uwe Boll.

the game genuinely has nothing to say outside of the political part

it's a halfbaked sandbox where the only enjoyment to be found is, well, the aspects of the game that people ITT are complaining about.

If you're not enticed by the complaints of the game mentioned in this thread, the game isn't worth playing. You'd have more fun playing GTA Vice City or San Andreas again.

Sounds like it's not worth my time.

Well now it just sounds like a waste of time.

This is - no joke - one of my all time favorite games, despite all the reasons it shouldn't be. Feel free to think poorly of me.

Personally the Noah Caldwell review of the series is still the best and most sincere look at it imo, it really gets to the heart of why it's not only a mediocre game from a gameplay standpoint but it's also just shit in general.

Postal 2 starts at 9:10

When I was an edgy teen I thought the height of hilarity was pissing in a priests face then setting an elephant on fire. Now the game's humor just seems sad.
