Mac Game Gate
This is one of the best, most bloody, most addictive game I've played in months. A really must-have! If you have a slow internet connection, take my word for it and buy it instead of spending 24 hours online! Also, don't let your kids near this one, or you'll not be able to use the computer for days!

While Postal is an action-packed bloodbath of a game, it gets repetitive rather quickly. Although level bosses have become trite, the endless repetition of the same fodder grows old. So although I enjoyed Postal and have spent the time and effort to beat it, the replay value is marginal.

On the other hand, doing well in a number of categories doesn't mean that a game is really good. I couldn't be honest with myself if I gave Postal a grade any higher than a C. A pass, but not a great grade.

Vous l'aurez compris, ce jeu n'est clairement pas à mettre en toutes les mains et même s'il représente un bon défouloir, il fait quand même frémir par sa violence gratuite poussée à l'excès. Autre point, ce jeu date tout de même de 1997 mais fonctionne bien sous Mac OS X via Classic mais le joypad est vivement conseillé (il vous faudra passer par GamePad Companion ou un autre utilitaire par contre) car ça reste peu maniable au clavier. Voilà, vous êtes au point sur le sujet pour la sortie en principe de Postal 2 qui fonctionne avec le moteur d'Unreal et qui risque une fois de plus de défrayer la chronique...

Okay, here is the part where I neglect my plentiful criticisms and confound my audience. Postal is fun. Yep. I don’t know whether it reflects poorly on me, or if human nature can serve as the scapegoat, but there is something indescribably gratifying about senseless violence. In spite of the clumsy control scheme, the obstructing camera perspective, and the general sickening nature of the game, it is still fun to play, and fulfilling to complete—especially on the harder difficulty levels.
