  1. The enhancements to the single player game are certainly a huge improvement and the multiplayer modes are reasonably fun although you might have trouble finding other people to play with or against.
  2. A game that should be reviled and admired at the same time. I kept wanting to despise the game but found myself playing it more and more.
  3. Without a linear storyline to back it up, Share the Pain brings a limited amount of its humor to the multiplayer world.
  4. As an FPS it's fun for a while with some entertaining quirks here and there but not enough to keep you interested all the way through.
  5. 56
    The multiplayer gameplay is just as half-baked on a gameplay level as the single-player, making Share the Pain good for some temporary novelty diversion, but not much more. If you were truly a fan of Postal 2, then you'll probably get a kick out of this.
  6. If you see a copy in a bargain bin someplace for less than $10 and you like FPS games, you might want to give it a try. Just watch out for those sadistic rednecks and their gimp suit.
  7. Once you get past the uber-violent novelty of killing innocent civilians with everything from Molotov cocktails to weapons of mass destruction, you'll find the gameplay rather repetitive and shallow.

    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

    It's old. It's ugly. But it always made me laugh. The absurd humor is unique and almost everything in the game is good source of fun. If you can watch South Park and laugh you can love this game either. ..also it's the only "really-bad-week simulator" out there. Expand

    One of the few games that actually lets you make choices! Truly open ended missions not just how you want but when you want in a living open world. Still discovering things after countless play through's. Constant load times transitioning to different area's hold this game back, otherwise a great game. Expand

    This is an entertaining game sometimes. I don't think it's for children, or anyone who is already disturbed. It is so far out that it is funny and somewhat entertaining. People seem to love violence and this is a spoof of a very violent disturbed individual. This is just a game, a little bit strange and certainly different. but I think it should not be censored by any means. I did get a kick out of it the first time I saw it, but that sort of wore off.
    It would get very repetitive after a short while, and I will say that it's only as violent as 'You' make it, with the decisions 'You' make while playing it.
