Meet Krotchy: the toy mascot gone bad, visit your Uncle Dave at his besieged religious cult compound and battle sewer-dwelling Taliban when you least expect them!

Piss and pour gasoline on anything and everyone! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!
Ever when I saw this on Desura I asked myself "What the hell is that?". Last night I was so ******' bored and then I asked myself again "What is that !!!" So I clicked on it and watched the first minutes of the trailer .... after that came the following question up "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT !!!" So I bought it on Desura (you get a Desua key and Steam Key). After few seconds of playing I understand "This game is just awesome !".
I love it. Tell me a game where you can pee and make people puke and fill the room with their vomit ! :D This game is so awesome ! I finally hope Postal 3 will get a Linux client ! :) If you like this kinda humor buy it !
(I would like to apologize because of the gramatical mistakes I might have made in this review. Notice english is not my first language.)
Brilliantly filled with dark humor and a gameplay that never gets old (I've completed it like 5 times or so. I'm still enjoying it as much as the first time I played it), Postal 2 proves that you don't really need the most realistic graphics ever or the best developers in existence to make something to be proud of. I would also like to add that I noticed the game concept was absolutely a leap of faith. Running with Scissors knew that they could have tried with a popular concept instead of taking such a risk (Who the hell would think about making a shooter involving an humor as controversial and ironic as the game's? It's a game about killing and that's not funny, isn't it?). They could have tried one they would know that's accepted by the gamers, and it's honorable to figure out they didn't. They -actually- created an original product knowing they were taking too many risks just to make it enjoyable and unique to the player and not a Halo clone or a Tomb Raider one. The result it's just... funny. Just look at the senseless city sighs, at the fact that every person in the game is so rude or at the overreaction of the people around Dude in most of the missions (which are also pure stupidity. Good stupidity through.). I promise you will never forget about this game after playing it. Never.
Also notice how, while most of the companies don't care about their releases, Running with Scissors is still fully supporting this game over 10 years after its official release. That is astonishing.
I've seen many people downrating this game. Don't pay attention to them, they don't know what they are talking about. 10/10
