The original Postal is a very dark game that can completely catch you off guard. It's notorious for it's hard to learn easy to master controls and it's psychotic rampage across the worlds first glimpse of Paradise, AZ. This game unlike Postal 2 & 3 has almost no comedy at all, when I say almost I mean you may laugh at the dude's one liners or a burning ostrich. There's really no way to tip toe around it but Postal is pretty much a body count game, you play the early version of the Postal Dude (who had a diary included in the game manual proving this, which you can of course find sources of on google) who snaps and goes Postal as he was being evicted from his home. Convincing himself the town is plagued with disease and he's the cure, slowly giving into the bloodlust.
GTA without vehicles, Redneck Rampage without Humor, and Postal 2 without the third dimension. Postal is a game, that's sole purpose is to be edgy. It's not as bad, as Hatred these days, or as they made out mortal kombat to be, but is certainly is ugly, hard to control, and just plain boring after a short time. Maybe the fault is with me because I played the sequel first. Anyway, I didn't like this game at all.
Hello! Well, this game is pretty old & gorish; yet, I would totally recommend it to anyone who played Postal 2. This game maybe has no plot, but you can use it to banish your boredom (by killing things with 10 different types of weapons). So why I didn't give this game a 5/5 score? 1. Controls- the controls are very simple and hard to master (the game is a top-down shooter). 2. Achievements! yep, this is (was) my biggest issue with this game. You need to install some OS to obtain an achievement, and shoot 1M bullets! After 30 hours (with some help from the developers), I finally managed to 100% the achievements; so if you are an achievement hunter - beware! Thanks! Yoav

Disclaimer: I got this game for free from greenmangaming as part of Welcome Bundle somewhere in the past. In terms of graphics, what would you expect a game from 1997? it is what it is considering its age now. Maybe someone will appreciate the old-school look nowadays. Gameplay-wise, you just went to a murderous rampage with little-to-no coherency in storytelling. This is to say the single-player campaign is just there to stitch together some reasons to justify the killing spree in this game. Overall, just play this game as a mindless, unapologetic time killer (and people killer too). You can have quite a few hours of fun that way. Oh, I didn't try the multiplayer mode at all because who would still try to find one in this aged game already, right?
