Well, can't say that's a shocker... and I agree with a lot of it sadly.

But no matter what they say, the badger saw was fun.

Still about 14% more than I would have rated it.

I actually quite enjoyed Postal 3. Although it wasn't as good as Postal 2 it was still rather enjoyable at times.

I think I'll forever be harsher on it because I know exactly how it should have been compared to how it turned out, grrr.

Still, obviously glad people find some fun in it.

I had fun with it, but there were too many problems to ignore. And it wasn't even the bugs, crashes, etc, because I almost never take that into account.  I think it was just the lost potential that bothered me the most, like Toploader said.

There were funny jokes, but some that felt forced.  The tone was a bit off, and the direction simply wasn't there.  The highest point of the game was really when you were running around doing what you do best: killing people.  But it was always super easy unfortunately.

I still think that P3 has massive modding potential.  The free roam could be made into something freaking awesome.  But that may never happen  :(

Thanks for reading my mind. ;)

It's been a while so I'm not sure, but I think PC Gamer was one of the few reviewers who had a somewhat positive review on Postal 2.

THe highest review I have ever seen on Postal 3 was a 51 though I wasnt sure who reviewed it.

IGN gave Postal 3 55%, which was surprising.

I stay neutral to this game.

Reason is simple, Akella is spreading way too thin when they did the whole game. It is understandable due to the low budget and stuff. Source engine, which can be good at times, can show its very ugly side if it's not properly programmed.

The bugs are serious and however it didn't fully stop me from finishing the game twice with different endings.

The cutscenes are pretty good and funny, and many stupid and funny jokes. Laughing on these jokes on a Christmas morning is priceless - despite they are offensive, the game delivers in terms of dark humour.

I hope they can make Postal IV. Did someone in RWS thinking of making it again using the latest Unreal Engine? No seriously, I wanna know. :)
