  • Summary: In Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend, gamers controlling the enigmatic Postal Dude will be sorely tempted to carry on his wicked ways in the weekend that follows on the bloody heels of the five insane, carnage-filled days experienced in POSTAL 2. This single-player expansion pack offers over 20 new areas of Paradise to decimate, 10 new missions to execute with extreme prejudice and an array of "cutting edge" weaponry that would make Lorena Bobbitt salivate. Gamers are no longer limited to merely blasting, burning and blowing up enemies ? they can hack them down to nuggets as well! There's the Scythe which definitely has some serious hands-on/heads-off appeal. Then there's the Sledgehammer ? pound for pound pure enjoyment. And the Boomerang Machete. It's exactly what it sounds like ? a machete that you can throw like a boomerang! Just line up some Mad Cow-infected Tourettes Zombies and cut right through and through and through! Other features allow users to determine NPC logic with dynamic, real-time AI; set up buildings, furniture and other visual elements to produce original game scenarios and create their own MOD for POSTAL 2.

  1. It’s a mild diversion when it works, crude and shoddy the rest of the time. The game’s fate is sealed by a simple realization: you need Postal 2 to play it. Movies like "Plan 9 From Outer Space," at least, don’t require a copy of "Glen or Glenda" to watch them.

    With smartly designed levels and a variety of tasks, there are much worse ways to spend a weekend. Don't expect the trimmings of a big-budget title, but it's a bloody, twisted good time to those who are neither squeamish nor easily offended.
  3. The problem with Apocalypse Weekend is that it lacks the cleverness and thoughtful execution that made the original worth laughs. [Oct 2005, p.72]
  4. It's crude, lewd, incompetently produced, and generally behaves like an ill-mannered 12-year-old. [Oct 2005, p.69]

    Underrated, unadultered masterpiece! Running With Scissors title Postal 2 provides choice. You can play through without using any violence or be as violent as you want. Expand

    The only thing i hate is the fact you cannot free roam, other than that the added weapons and feature are epic that i could play this game for hours even though i agree that Postal 2 was a bit better Expand

    If you enjoyed Postal 2, you will probably like this expansion as well. There's no free-roam in AW but, new weapons are really great. And also weapons are not only new thing. Fully destroyable bodies, you can dismember every single limb of your enemies, normal NPCs or ZOMBIES. Yes i said zombies, you can kill zombies with most brutal ways, hammer, saw, sickle, machette, deodorant and lighter...

    And if you have "A week in Paradise" mod, it adds AW weapons and fully dismemberment feature to original Postal 2 game. It totally worths it. If you never played postal2, or played it a long time ago, grab a new copy from Steam. Play it again. After all these years, i still playing it and i still think it's one of the best games ever.

    A good addition to a great game, unfortunately it was very linear compared to Postal 2, but some people prefered it that way, and as usual its full of postal's fun moments. Expand
