Postal (1997) review
Very great game. Not necessarily for it's gameplay or graphics since I admit their both pretty sub-par, but the atmosphere, good god. I love how morbid the game is, really feels like you're in the mind of someone who, after letting the stress of life get to him, snaps and goes postal. The ominous loading screens coupled with how the actual levels look so innocent, as if this was all taking place in a 90's Nickelodeon cartoon, only for you to reek absolute havoc upon everything in sight, it all fits together nice. If you're looking for a game that feels as though Stanley Kubrick was involved, I recommend this. Here's hoping that after Paradise Lost comes out, RWS decides to take Postal back to it's darker roots, at least for one last time.
