An okay remake for an okay game, the atmosphere stands out as great. Although the new ending, while understandable, completely changes the game's question of "At what point is violence in video games too far?" to the story of a mentally-ill man whose last straw is snapped, leading him to create a justification for his actions (being the sole survivor of a government-made "hate plague"), and this delusion breaking after witnessing the mourning of a deceased at a funeral.
It might be only two steps above some of those old flash games where you could do very heinous shit with little in terms of purpose, but there's something about how with silly underground comic aesthetics the game portrays a raw violence filled trip through someone's schizophrenic paranoia that just works.
It helps that it's a small game with very little in terms of filler, there's no complicated systems whatsoever, and just does its thing. Some level layouts are a bit of an uphill battle in higher difficulties and they'll make you sweat, but it ain't bad at all.
Shoutout to the title cards for each level for having some of the most dark, twisted and interesting music in gaming. Like, goddamn, the base game would be so much disturbing with those playing in the background.
Crazy what an upgrade to presentation can do, it’s still mindless but it’s visuals are way more metal
its a nice remaster of one of the most controversial games of gaming
Great remake, i love how darker Postal is from the rest of the games. The atmosphere of this game is top notch too.
ótimo, agora lancem Postal 2 no Switch logo pelo amor de Deus
