  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.

    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.

    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. Cheat Code Central

    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.

    Greatest game ever! I can't wait for Postal 3, which I read is in development as of Feb 08, as well as a Postal movie coming up. Single Greatest game ever! I can't wait for Postal 3, which I read is in development as of Feb 08, as well as a Postal movie coming up. Single player is sickeningly entertaining, and the multiplayer is phenomenal. Best LAN party game ever. Ratings obviously bad because of the intense violence and bad taste. Get your noses out of the air critics and come down to earth with the rest of us regular people. 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 funnyThis 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.

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

    Bought this on Steam and it crashes reliably if too many NPCs are killed. I have Windows 10 with 8 gb ram and i7 processor. same problem onBought this on Steam and it crashes reliably if too many NPCs are killed. I have Windows 10 with 8 gb ram and i7 processor. same problem on Mac too. talked to RWS about the crash on Mac, they said their code guy went awol and that they would have it fixed soon. RWS has not fixed this 2 year old bug and suffice to say, they will not fix it. The bug report submission form has been disabled or broken, the link that leads to RWS's forum is dead, and they no longer respond to the Steam message boards. I think it's time to bury this title. It's been two years and I'm tired of waiting for them to do something. Expand
