GameInfo: In Postal III, The Postal Dude emigrates to Paradise’s sister town of Catharsis as he previously blew up Paradise with a nuclear bomb. Due to the economic meltdown, the Dude drives into town and becomes stranded by the fact he can not even afford a tank of gas. He then must find work and do various odd jobs to escape the town.
Through the course of the game the player can chose one of two paths, the “bad path” which includes joining in on the schemes of Mayor Chomo and Uncle Dave, or the “good path” which involves the Dude joining the Catharsis Police force. The game will take place in a fairly linear and cinematic way, although the players actions will affect the outcome of the story and the game. Although the “good path” will be more difficult to play, it will offer more story line and a longer campaign.
|Evilgamerz As one of the first, Evilgamerz has made a review of the game Postal III for the PC. Allthough the game still has it’s funny moments and the game has multiple endings, the fun is more less then that from Postal 2. Also the graphics and the sound are way to dissapointing to give this game enough credits for it’s original gameplay. Read Full Review||59/100|
|IGN My hat goes off to Running With Scissors to be ballsy enough to make yet another game that’s completely unapologetic in its treatment of risque and taboo subject matter. It’s hard to imagine anyone not being offended by Postal III. That’s a big selling point for some folks, but the uninspired gameplay and serious technical glitches all but kill this dark, occasionally humorous, and extreme exercise in freedom of expression.

|GameDynamo “Oh my! Here we are, so many years later, and with a third installment of the Postal series. Who’d have thought all these years later that we’d get this far with a series that is saturated with the most absurd, perverse, pants-down, non-PC humor and even have a motion picture based on the series to boot? Postal III continues the… legacy? of the Postal series, and it gives us plenty of bad jokes along the way.” Read Full Review||37/100|
|Canadian Online Gamers Before very recently, my only knowledge of the Postal series was of the first game, which was known for being heavily violent and controversial. So admitedly I do not have extensive experience with the Postal franchise. Nevertheless, I approached this game expecting something similar to Grand Theft Auto. Unfortunately, Postal 3 is anything but as this entry into the Postal series is dated, uninspired and simply unpleasant to play. Read Full Review||35/100|
|Gamingsquid Postal III is finally here, setting all new standard for sanguinary gameplay and obscenity. Apart from the gory gameplay and funny humor, the game falls straight in every major aspect. Contrived control scheme, broken AI, and terrible level design makes the game nothing more then a terribly failed attempt. And the arrant deficiency of humor or ingeniousness induces the fun to fall straight. Plus the addition of bugs that cause the game to crash to desktop is a pain, it simply means that you just wasted your bandwidth in downloading this piece of shit. Read Full Review||35/100|
