Postal III Review


“Growing up with a love of campy horror chop-‘em-ups and weird cult classics, I’ve developed a certain appreciation for the bizarre, the taboo, and the gruesome that probably far exceeds any normal person’s threshold for the stuff. But even so, I find Postal III’s sheer level of tastelessness for tastelessness’ sake off-putting. This is a game where AIDS-infected monkeys hump people’s faces, you’re tasked with slaughtering a gang of gay cowboy bikers riding Segways, and you can use a machete to decapitate pedestrians and then urinate on their corpses – or, alternately, light them on fire. Some of the game’s humor is clever, some of it is outright vile and disturbing. The surprising thing is, it’s Postal III’s slapdash gameplay and technical problems that I find the most offensive.”
