postal 2, worth picking up?

I saw at gamestop that they have postal 2 for $39.99 with free overnight shipping if you use the coupon code GOPOSTAL

http://www.gamestop.com/product.asp?...234&affid=3303


Seems like a decent deal for a new game, but is it worth it? Ive been looking at this game for awhile now, and ive been waiting for impressions of it. Anyone play it yet?

a friend bought it and i've played it. horrible load times. pretty unplayable in the beginning if you ask me, (and that's crucial to keeping me interested to play onwards...)

Why not download the demo on fileplanet? I DL'ed it a couple nights ago with no wait time. Anyways, how did I like it? Well it was pretty fun if you thought the first one was fun and you have a sick twisted sense of comedy. But I could see how the game could get old fast.

Think of GTA without the cars and kicking the ultra violence up a noche. Hell, after you decapitate someone with a shoval and then play golf with their head. Not to mention that you could pull down your zipper and piss on anyone, which you must do if you accidently put yourself on fire..

Is the game fun. Yeah, it has it's moments, but I could see how this game could get old really fast. Also, as for load times. I'm sure it also depends on what your system specs are. If you are rocking an AMD or P4 with enough ram, then I'm sure it will cut back the load times.

I tried the demo. I have a pretty good machine, and the load times were out of control...especially when compared to games with flashier graphics (Unreal 2 for instance). The concept is amusing enough. If this ever hits the $10 bargain bin, I'll probably shell out the dough for the full version.
