    If you like other postal games and you want to buy the first postal because it is cheap - don't do it. It will disappoint you and it changed the way how I think of this series. The game is just dumb and not even funny, you will get bored of it after a couple of minutes.

    There is no story, premise, nor any kind of introduction. Before each level, there is a brief sentence that is supposed to give more depth to the reasons behind the murder spree, but they are often too vague and pointless. The controls are absolutely terrible. Aiming is close to impossible, with the keyboard or mouse.

Before each level, there is a brief sentence that is supposed to give more depth to the reasons behind the murder spree, but they are often too vague and pointless. The controls are absolutely terrible. Aiming is close to impossible, with the keyboard or mouse. It is a matter of holding down the fire key and moving your character in the direction that hopefully your enemies will come across. Movement is slow, sluggish, and clunky. The weapons behave strangely, and there is very little reason to switch between them, especially when some are nearly impossible to shoot with any precision whatsoever. There is simply nothing amusing or interesting in Postal, nor is there any entertainment or amusement value to be gained. It is a game with extremely limited content, and terrible controls that has only been given attention to the vague and boring idea behind it. If you are looking for a game with gratuitous violence without any reasons or story at all, there are many others out there that are far more polished and better executed than this attempt at a unique gaming experience. Postal fails in every possible aspect, even for the mid to late 90s. Expand

    The game is severely hindered by terrible controls. Play the sequel, Postal 2, instead. It has a much wider fanbase and fan support, along with 3d environments, a wide amount of weapons, and a great sense of humor.

    Postal is a big joke. Not so bad that it is a joke, I mean it literally is just a joke. And you'd save more time watching it's flaws on YouTube than actually going to the store to buy this. Even if you found this funny, it's going to be extremely unplayable... and very forgettable. Don't buy Postal or it's follow ups.. It might just kill us all.

    The worst game I ever saw. Seriously I do not understand people who like this kind of games. Probably they have very twisted sense of humor...........

    Complete garbage, one of the worst game I have played so far. The controls are terrible, bad implemented, there's not even a storyline or a level structure, the only objective is to kill an entire town, and after that, nothing more to do, you gotta load maps in order to play, what a shame that most of those maps are crap. Seriously, this game failed almost in every posible way, it is asComplete garbage, one of the worst game I have played so far.

Seriously, this game failed almost in every posible way, it is as bad or even worst than Hatred, another piece of **** game that didn't improved the gameplay mechanics. This game looks like it was made by a group of psychos with no knowledge of videogames. Expand

  1. The lack of longevity in the single-player mode and the simplistic multiplayer options make Postal a moderately fun ride, at best.
  2. Postal rates a 64 for disappointing gameplay and general bad judgment in setting the game's focus on the shock value rather than on anything substantial or creative, and for wasting the obvious artistic talents of Postal's designers.
  3. The selling point of Postal is still its best feature - unabashed anarchy and a willingness to go where other games haven't. The gameplay is average; really no new ground is broken, and at its core this is just arcade style action. But the fact remains that Postal has upped the ante as far as what is accepted in the mainstream gaming world.
