POSTAL Redux Co-Op Now Available

The ruthless simulated reduction of an entire town's population is hard work - long hours, little reward, a lot of safety hazards; but, by and large, the worst aspect of the job has probably got to be the loneliness. Anyone of you who has already played POSTAL Redux, be honest - after you were done killing every living thing in a single level, did you ever start to feel a little lonely? Did you ever wish, for just a second, that you could share the experience with another person? Don't you think that The Postal Dude could use a little bit of companionship?

Well then... Good news, everyone! Today we are launching the Collective Paranoia Initiative in Paradise, Arizona. That's right - POSTAL Redux now has cooperative online multiplayer, for up to 4 players. No longer will it just be you against the world. No longer will you have to bare the weight of all that killing on your own shoulders. Now you can bring friends - someone you can trust; someone who will watch your back; someone you can pin the whole thing on, in the end!

Multiplayer support for Redux includes all the levels from the campaign (and it will also support the additional 'Special Delivery' and 'Super POSTAL' levels that we will be releasing later), for 2 to 4 players. Don't have any friends to play with, and too afraid of 'stranger danger' to risk matchmaking? No worries, we'll provide you with some AI bots, to fill the empty slots in the roster, and the empty slots in your heart. There's also a new ending to see, for completing the game in co-op (the twist is that Postal Dude was the killer all along!).

If you don't already own POSTAL Redux, then now is the time to join the insanity! If you already own it, then maybe pick it up for a friend or two, or three? Live a little!

Side note, thanks RWS for releasing on my B-day

This game is fun. Shoot-em-up arcade horror game where you are the "monster". This time, we have a few new endings, too. I have to say Rampage mode is extremely fun. The game later explains how you've been put into his psyche as loading screens turn from hints into insane garbles about perfection and wooing an unknown crowd. It also makes everything a little more fast paced, with some very fun metal music and a combo that mutliplies the player's score. I had a lot of trouble beating it with my noob skills, so I usually ended up with Fs (guess I was wooing Mr. Crocker).

Returning for the psychological horror is the main campaign itself, which is almost a 100% remake of the old game, but better looking, better playing, and better controlled. The Journal entries and art are just as creepy as ever, and even animated, too. There's a new carnival level, too, but I've only been there in Rampage. There are very adorable clowns shooting at the Dude, using colorful SMGs.

Controls are a hell of a lot better than the original steam version (no more right click to move forward, right click now grenades, though), it now plays a lot similar to other isometric games, like hatred. The art is a lot better looking, and it fits in a lot with the new character models. Ending the disc version Red Coat vs PP Blue Coat vs Black Coat Steam version is an option to change the coat color. There's a part on the forums where a dev shown the colors off here if you want to see them. He did it in very true RWS fashion, too.

Fast-paced isometric shooter. Very violent and fun.
Got every achievment and A+'s on all rampage levels; I like it a lot.

Needs a few patches to make it better, but it's pretty awesome.
Could use more sounds, gibs, laser-sight, etc. (modders or RWS could do this in an update).

Looking forward to the free maps!
Hope they add leaderboards and more gore.
Also, the AI needs improvement; civilians run around like chickens w/o heads, creating a cartoony environment.

Far too juvenile and one-note to recommend, but I can see the appeal through shock-value alone for teens growing up in the 90's. These days it's just, "meh". That said, I enjoyed myself enough to recommend it on sale.

It was confusing the way the levels would switch between isometric and birds-eye view; why not just pick one during development and go with it? There were also many instances where enemies could shoot me but I could not shoot back, which is infuriating, helped in no small part by the static environments.

Lastly, the game is far too short, which sucks because it ends right when it's starting to get interesting. I beat it in just over three hours, not counting the Rampage mode which is just an arcade version of the main campaign.

For nostalgia rangers only.

Postal Redux is an isometric shooter with a very dark and unnerving spin since instead of killing demented demons or aliens, your job is to slaughter civillians and those who would come to their aid. Postal is a very unique game since in many other games you might play as the noble knight who vanquishes demons or maybe an elite special ops soldier who stops terrorists but Postal poses a very unique question, what happens when the demon is you? Postal is essentially a game that takes the traditional good guys beat bad guys mindset and turns it on its head and puts you in the role of making sure that the bad guys win. This is a very unique game since even in the other Postal games they're more comical and here in the original instead of laughing while peeing on people you're setting towns aflame and fighting with the demons in your mind.

Postals game mechanics are very simple and very sweet, if a bit repetitive at times. Postal gives you a variety of weapons you can use ranging from basics like a revolver or a shotgun to a flamethrower and a rocket launcher. The problem is that you're given so many weapons but you only end up using one or two of them since you can use those same weapons for just about every situation in the game. I wish there was more variation with the enemies as well since they're all the exact same thing with the only difference being their models, weapons, and the amount of bullets they soak up. The levels however, are varied and interesting as you fight at carnivals, in a military base, or even in a mine at one point. The levels are generally very straightforward with the exception of a couple secret areas off to the sides where you can grab some extra armor or ammunition. When you make a game with the main mechanic being shooting people you have to make sure that the guns feel very responsive, unique, and fun to use and that's something Postal definitely doesn't do. The first gun you get is an MP5 submachine gun and it feels incredibly responsive but also extremely weak at the same time and this is how just about all the games weapons feel which is a shame since shooting people is ninety nine percent of what you're doing in Postal.

Postal is a game that set the standard for what was considered to be crossing the line and although some may find the game disturbing there is something to be said about a company like RWS who was willing to cross that line and push the boundaries or what is considered okay. While the media called the game deplorable and claimed it glorified violence Postal is actually quite an interesting look into a fascinating story of a man gone mad by the stresses of modern life and really makes you think as to whether you're a murdering psychopath who butchers people and laughs or maybea broken man who was locked up for reasons he couldn't understand.

TL;DR
Postal Redux is a psychotic look into what happens when instead of butchering demons, the demon is you.

This review is gonna be quick since I recently finished this game il just leave the things I thought were notable to the experience.

The game plays like a twinstick shooter being a remake of one, but considering the age of the original title the new art and engine is to quite a high standard with ai supression being a thing with stun anims to the AI not being Hatred AI so the civillians arent completely counter intuitive to escaping.
This shouldnt however be confused for a Postal 2 game as the focus is less on parody and more on the weapons and levels.
Mighty boot seems to be missing but if I recall it was never originally present (maybe add it?)
For the price its not a bad postal game, if you have already played the original postal you might not spend so much time with it but their does seem to be some promise of future updates and changes so watch this space.
Im looking forward to seeing more from this game as it was fairly enjoyable to play through and it could only be made better with more things and people to blow up and shoot.

Awesome game- one of the funnest I've played in a while. The gameplay is more difficult than expected and requires you to take your time blasting through the "hostiles". Although fully supported, using a xbox controller is a little awkward and hard to aim. Playing with mouse/keyboard is way more enjoyable and I wouldn't plan on using controller personally.

Postal, The legend, the classic

What's the defining factor for a medium of entertainment to be worthy to be called a "classic"? It varies, it greatly varies. The most common ones, the ones that everyone can agree with are those which receive a "universally acclaimed" status, the innovative, genre-defining games, or the highly stylistic ones, though it usually lack on substance. And then there are the arguable "so bad it's good", "niche", "bold", "guilty pleasure" one. And that, everyone, is what embodies the original 1997 Postal. A game that echoes controversy since it's release, panned by critics, yet loved by many. It's bold, it's a niche, sub par quality all across the board, it's certainly a guilty plleasure. It's the ultimate slasher B-movie of video games. Edgy, disturbing, tasteless, and pretty much senseless. But why? Why a game with such "quality" receieved a classic status? It's simply because Postal is self aware, it capitalize it's strength perfectly, it has one solid and clear purpose, that is GOING ♥♥♥♥ING POSTAL.

Simplicity and straightforward-ness is the key, Postal is a "twin stick isometric mass murdering and maniacally laugh your ♥♥♥ off while you do so" game, and that's it. Compared to the more well known, evenly infamous, satire-laden successor, Postal 2. Postal 1 has a darker, more serious tone. Adapting an arcade style level where you have to kill a certain percentage of total hostile in order to continue (would be a good way to teach kids some math). It's a game that knows it's audience (read: Edgy teens that constanly has a bad day but well aware that burning down their entire neighborhood is illegal). And that's why it holds a special place on the rank of classic video games.

Twenty years and "Mass murdering and laugh your ♥♥♥ off while doing so" games are getting more accepted, more open, mainstream, and "inventive". Games like Postal is considered comical violence this time around, so when the news arise that this little diamond is getting a remake, I can't help but wondering, is it really the right move? Yes, it is!

Adding the much needed substance

Postal Redux, to put it simply is basically the entirety of Postal has a major conversion to Unreal Engine 4. It's 1997 Postal as you know it, with much improved graphic and effects, reworked sound design, and having a modern control scheme. Aside minor gameplay tweaks, a new weapon, and the Rampage Mode, Postal, at it's core remain unchanged. Gameplay is more faster paced and more fluid, since the transition from 2D sprites to 3D model and much better aiming are the most welcomed changes. There is also a Rampage mode that turns Postal to a fully arcade game, with high score and kill multiplier that adds some replay value and challenge. I'm glad that RWS know exactly what they are doing, working on what really matters on modern video games, it's the pace and fluidity.

Though, with these overhaul a little bit of things has to be "sacrificed", with the much cleaner, more professionally handled sound design and softer, more HD looks of the game, the creepy and disturbing tone of the original Postal is noticeably toned down, the overall roughness and budget-tier production of the original is the defining characteristic, which is unfortunate.

(Almost) perfect remake, definitely not perfect time

While I think Postal Redux is one of the most successful remake for me, the game itself didn't age well. As I said earlier, people are no stranger to violent video games as of now, in fact they are getting more open, complex, and inventive. Simplicity is both the strength and weakness of Postal Redux, I won't go to the strengths because I've allready cover that, let's focus on the weakness. Simplicity brings repetitiveness, most of the time. There is simply not enough replay value on Postal Redux, finished the campaign 2 times, get all achievements, and the rest on Rampage mode everytime you have a bad day. "Is it the whole point of Postal?", you ask. Well yes, it is, but with "only" that, I think the price is bit too high. Yes, I know RWS will keep it updated just like they did with Postal 2 (which is awesome), but I still think it's kinda lacking. Opening the gate for mods, at the very least a level editor will be a welcome addition, and MP seems cool.

It lives, and it's glorious!

In conclusion, Postal Redux is a remake, done right. RWS knows what makes Postal good, and don't tinker with it, instead they worked with something that really matters in order to "modernize" a game. Postal Redux is a glorious reminder of the infamouse 1997 classic, brought back to life with all of it's mindless fun-madness. It's a throwback of the simplicity of 90's games, a proof that you just need a clear purpose and capitalize on it to make a fun game, though it did bring lack of replay value, with the absent of mods, for today's standard.
