Summary

An atrocious waste of time - it's not even offensive.

The Good

There's really not much to like about "Postal." The weird little blurbs between levels are cool.

The Bad

As a game, "Postal" is more or less a joke. Basically a side-scrolling shooter, the game play is boring and uninteresting. Graphics and sound are unimpressive. The game is slow and jerky, even on good systems. Even the whole "slaughter the innocents" bit turns out to be a cop-out. "Postal" isn't really a good enough game to be sold in stores; it's got a definite freeware feel to it.

The Bottom Line

A waste of time; there's nothing to recommend this game.
