Look, this game is only for the adults and should be pulled out when you are in the appropriate "mood" as it can leave an interesting taste in your mouth. But it should really be appreciated for it's outlandish "dirty" humor and it's celebration of the First Ammendment.
Game Over Online
In many respects, Share the Pain would have made Postal 2 a much better game. The on and off multiplayer lag found here would be more forgivable too since multiplayer components often see the least amount of testing. But this is the second release, and like the parodies on the situation in Afghanistan, Share the Pain is one step behind. It really should have been parodying Iraq, but maybe when we're on the eve on the next war on terror, we'll see that game released.
Moral judgments aside, Postal 2: Share the Pain certainly isn't a bad game. It at least tries to put a slightly original twist on first-person shooters by letting you explore (and open fire) at your leisure, and there's simply a lot of stuff to see in Paradise. The multiplayer portion of Share the Pain is OK, too, though it probably would have had more of an impact had it been included with the original version of Postal 2. In fact, it may seem strange to put it this way, but Postal 2: Share the Pain is the game that Postal 2 probably should have been in the first place.
"Postal 2" é um jogo simples e sem grandes pontos fortes. Mas tendo em vista que roda em computadores mais antigos e custa apenas 20 reais, pode ser uma boa escolha para os maiores de 18 anos que buscam um game com o espírito de "South Park".
Postal 2 had its share of problems, but one of the major ones was a complete lack of multiplayer. This didn't hurt other open-ended, over-the-top action games like Grand Theft Auto 3, but that was mostly because GTA3 was a shiny game experience all by itself. Postal 2, however, featured poor AI, too much running around, debilitating performance issues, long load times, and a few other things. Share the Pain reduces the load time issue, but everything else is pretty much unchanged.
Was bleibt unter dem Strich zu "Postal 2: Share the Pain" zu sagen. Das Teil brauch ich wie Krampfadern oder Hämorrhoiden. Hätte man einen innovativeren und vor allem intelligenteren Multiplayermodus dem Spiel spendiert hätte ich gesagt es wäre für Fans evtl. ein Kaufgrund. So bleibt aber nur für den wirklich hartgesottenen Postal 2-Fan ein wenig Multiplayerspaß über, alle anderen können ihr Geld sicher besser anlegen.
Postal 2: Share the Pain has only one contribution—introducing atrocious mutli-player to go alongside the equally horrendous single-player. The foul-mouthed humor might’ve been tolerable if there was a competent game to go along with it, but Running With Scissors was too busy controversy-baiting politicians and watchdog groups to do that.
