I found Postal pretty much interesting, you start at a house, where cops are shooting at you,it's an indie 2d shooting game, the movement system is the only thing that makes it bad and made me give up from that game. The graphics are also not that good, but it's acceptable for a game released on 1997. It has some nice weapons between you can choose,different zones where you pass through and the background theme changes,it also has undergrounds, but what makes it very good is the blood effects which are pretty realistic and well drown for a game at 1997. The only bad things are 2: The controls ( you have to get used to them) and the graphics which as I said are acceptable as the game is very old.

But of course just in game ;) So my story with Postal game started long time ago. To be honest I haven't played it much back then but I fixed it few days ago. What's so cool about Postal? It's brutal, you can call it blood fest. You are killing innocent people. You can execute them. Blow them up with your grenades, fire them up with your molotov coctails. Not only them, there is also police, and some other people with guns that will try to stop you. I love the graphics in this one - it perfectly fits this kind of game which makes really awesome climate. It's just mindless fun. Back when game was out it was controversial. Now? I don't think anybody would make a big deal of it. If you are looking for simply and bloody fun, get it.

Despite the second game has more humour and funny stuff, this game is totally different. You'll notice the controls are a little bit weird and hard to get used to but it's not that bad. Also this one is more dark and creepy as the loading screens show dead people sounding more cruel, even the ending is messed up but worth trying.

While Postal caused more outrage than financial success it did become a cult classic by being a reasonably good game that is the only one (as far as I know) dealing with the theme of going on a murderous rampage for no appearant reason. The controls are a bit clumsy and the graphics were closer to acceptable than to great even at the release but the game has a strangely unique atmosphere that will either capture you or disgust you. The price is great for the game so if you can make friends with the thought of murdering women, children and pretty much everything else through 21 levels then don't hesitate to pick it up.

The first installment of Postal is probably one of the best in the series. The violence gameplay it offers it is just simply top notch. The story is very enjoyable as well as it compliment the violence of the gameplay. Gameplay is just a simple shoot and kill nothing too hard or innovating, just simple gameplay that get you through the game which is suprisingly enjoyable most likely due to the violence aspect. DO give this a try if you are looking for a violence game to fill you up until another good one come by.
