Postal 2 vs Postal 3
I have been looking at this for a long time and wanting to buy it but all I hear is that is sucks.
I don't really know if that is true. I mean I love the crazyness that is Postal but is it worth it.
Is it anything like Postal 2?

Well, I have Postal 3 and I can say that you'll have a good time playing it. It doesn't look like Postal 2, and what says Vult isn't correct because Postal 3 has a free roam mode. But it has a lot of performace problems, even with powerful PCs (experience). And I think that those problems will never get fixed because Akella has the property of the game and RWS can't do anything.

Postal 2 is A LOT better than P3. Postal 3 has optimization issues, loads of bugs, and a weak storyline. The free roam mode isn't that great in P3, as the city isn't as big (nor fun) as the one in P2. I believe the only thing that P3 has on P2, are HDR and the graphics.

Is it worth the money then? Doesnt really seem like it.

don't buy it. MAYBE if it's on sale for .99 cents. it's not even made by RWS, it's made by some russian company. it's buggy, it has weak, WEAK comedy value compared to P2 (it uses jokes/memes that were considered funny in 2006). The Dude's new voice actor sucks and mostly re-uses old Dude quotes from previous games, except voiced terribly. The gameplay is clunky and bad.

The only good thing i can say about P3 was the physX on the dude's trenchcoat.

i am ashamed i payed $40 for this game, let alone having the misfortune of seeing it in my games list.

Postal 2 beats this game over the head with a shovel and laughs as its head rolls down the road.

P2: First person shooter, funny, playable, free roam, can be fun at any time.
P3: Third person sholder, unfunny, broken as crap, unplayable, free roam (I think?), makes the source engine look like cancer.

Results: Postal 2 wins.

buy postal 2 its made by the actual people who started the postal series in the 1st place (Running With Scissors) not some lame russian company that can't fix anything (I sadly bought P3 and it sucked)

I just loved Postal 2, just played it days and night. So, what can I say about Postal 3? This game is crap made of crap...
MintySyrup Mar 6, 2013 @ 3:35pm 
I'm thinking about buying just for the hell of it and just to say I have it. Have they updated anything from release?
Unusual62 КЛ Mar 6, 2013 @ 3:39pm 
not much... Some free roam (as I remember) after game complete, but that's not gonna fix terrible game... Play Postal 2, 100 times better and have editor)))

It has some amusing and fun aspects but the gameplay balances between being completely boring and outright broken.
