    Currently, the only place to get this game is HERE

    And it seems that they're offering a reduced price until Jan 1st: $19.95!

    I recommend reading THIS review (done by santaduck) before you buy this though.

    He also did a cool interview with Vince Desi HERE

    You can always download the demo before you buy...

    I got this game two days ago, and it's really fun. From the santaduck review i thought the games graphics would suck, but it turns out that it actually looks great. Even the sound is better than i thought. The games series of events is really shocking, yet similar to current life (in the extreme).

    I ordered the game the day i posted this thread, so it took awhile to get here. It came with no instruction manual. Just a walmart DVD case with a crappy printed insert for the cover. Turns out the DVD is a burn too. Guess they didn't have the money to actually 'publish' the game...

    Those interested, or considering buying this game, i would encourage it (read the review first though of course). While it's not packaged like a normal game, the game itself is totally awesome. I'll be playing it for a long time.

    Oh, and yes... i ordered directly from the postal store place.

    Support these guys! They rock!

    Well, If you can't make graphics right or sounds, you can always put lots of gore and sex in the game. Plus a cool art on the cover, and the game just might sell.

    Ironically, they did find money to hire strippers to promote the game though.
    But hey, they are trying to make extra bucks by selling POSTAL thongs... :rolleyes:

    This game sucks! I bought it for $20 pre-2005 but even at that price i dont recommend it. I dont know if its poor scripting or whatever, but this game takes forever to load and its a very very pooly planned game. ie, going from one section of the map to another takes a couple minutes to load. When i got the cops chasing me and i reach the transitions, they are all of a suddenly not chasing me anymore.

    This game stinks, so get the demo, play it for about 10 min taking peoples heads off with a shovel, pee on someone to make them puke, kill random people in their homes...you get the idea.

    But some how I just can't seem to delate it off my machine.

    hehe, I had the isometric Postal 1. I thought it was pretty funny but I lost the CD (maybe someone borrowed it and never gave it back..?)
