You want a shitty game, with horribly designed levels and stupid, immature situations to try and shock people?

Play Postal 2 on any setting.

Awwwww, whats that? Too shitty of a game for you? Too immature? Not fun? Cant handle it? Gotta use an uninstaller?


weeee

Being able to kick in MP is very useful. Like postal 2 singleplayer, you can use it to get through doors much faster, kick grenades back at other people who have thrown them at you, and kick seeking rockets away from you to get a chance to shoot them out of the air.

Speaking of which, grenades in MP have a lot of interactivity. Along with trying to kick grenades back at people in defense, grenades can be alt-fired and dropped like a mine. In that mode, you can lay grenade traps all around the level in hopes of someone walking into them by accident, or hiding somewhere and shooting the grenades to blow up as someone tries to dodge around them. Dropped grenades ready to explode look subtley different from grenades powerups. While it's possible to tell the grenade traps from the grenade powerups, you can sometimes fool people into trying to pick up a trap if you place it where grenades respawn.

I enjoyed Postal 2 and played it to completion but must agree the replay value is very low. But this is true of almost all shooters. Replayability comes with multiplayer.

I hope you are able to run up and lop peoples heads off with a shovel in the MP as you can in the SP! Yeah, I'm twisted like that!

The weapons and the damage dealt by them are completely retuned from the single player version for multiplayer. There will be headshot damage and kickback (screen jumps up somewhat as you shoot depending on running/standing still) for the gun weapons.

Postal 1 was a classic PC game.

Postal 2 ruined Postal 1. Too bad.

talk about beating a dead horse.
i usually don't, but this one time the horse was quite lumpy, beating it was the only way to reshape its stiffened, rotting corpse in order to produce a quality picture, one without lumps that is.

thats why i didn't like GTA. how many hardened criminals do you know that can't swim? or the guys that i would sniper that wouldn't die after one shot. i want more realism in games, like chaser, now thats real. and it has lots of heart.

Talk about beating a dead horse. The thing about postal 2 is that the people took about 10 hits to die. It would have been a lot more realistic if when you shot them in the face with an m16 they died instead of just flinching.

Suprised anyone played it longer than the first week it was out. Heh.

You know selling dlc before you patch the client doesn't impress upon me the need to support your shit. -massdev
