Postal 2 aged terribly. There is enjoyment to be found in Postal's 2 base game, but those moments are diamonds in the rough. Postal 2's dlc is worse.

Personal awards for this game:
All Time Favorite

Somebody Cared

Pee-a-thon

Multiple Dude Personalities

 

 

If this is RWS's (The company, not Ross's initials) way of making up for the fiasco that was Postal 3, they absolutely made up for it. Hell, having Rick Hunter AND Corey Cruise play both versions of the Dude should be a highlight.

 

Paradise Lost recommendation: Better stock up on the good guns and some bladed weapons by Friday when all hell breaks loose. Play some of the fastest, heaviest music you got, and start the murdering (and peeing)

Its more Postal 2, but with a post-apocalyptic-old-west style reskin on the whole original Postal 2 map and a split personality disorder for the Dude.

The dlc is as janky as the base game but playable unlike Postal 3, an easy buy if you enjoy the base game.

Doesn't have the same charm as the original five days, but still a great addition to the absurd, weird, but silly and funny gameplay of Postal 2.


Fun fact: Postal 2 is illegal in New Zealand, where I live, and I'm risking a NZD$50,000 fine or 10 years imprisonment by simply owning it 😒

Absolutely worth it. If you liked Postal 2, this is more of the same. I'm not sure if it counts as extension or DLC but it adds a lot of content - a new story, completely new "missions" - and contemporary references as well as many callbacks to the original game. The gameplay is mostly similar, with a few additions (you can still piss on people but now you can also kick them in the balls, say "fuck you" and flip the bird. Yeah, as I said, it's still Postal 2). There's a bug where if you kill an NPC they explode instead of ragdolling so that might be an issue for you, personnally I didn't mind (it might have been fixed, I played it a few years ago).

I always had an appeal to this and the other postal games, over the years i gave it  a try here and there but never really sat down and played it through. Then after watching "civvie 11" do his "pro" play through of the game i knew i had to step back and treat that game more for what it was not compare it to others. It is simple, glitch y, but for the most part works well and has some very cynical, dark humor that needs to be looked at with a grain of salt. The world of "postal" is a world worth exploring even broken aspect seems to work for the better (aside from  rare crashes). Having a game glitch so you GIB someone when you  didn't intend it to be more then a kick is the kind of  experience that is lost in modern games. There are flaws there are problems but nothing about the game makes it unplayable, and no matter how you want to play it, you are never limited by  what the game wants you to do. A rare example of a quality  game made without quality parts, but still made to work competently.
