About this game
Developer: CreativeForge Games
One too many hits on the head. One too many hits off the pipe. One too many shootouts ending in carnage. And there we go - brain damage. That’s the only explanation for what’s happening to The POSTAL Dude. All of a sudden, he’s in an asylum full of freaks. The Big Bad Nurse has been handing out some really funky meds, turning the patients and the orderlies into lewd, blood-thirsty maniacs. Is this some crazy nightmare, or is it the twisted reality? Become the Dude and shoot your way out of the loony bin. Too bad the world outside has gone just as crazy. You can’t trust your mind, you can’t trust your eyes, but there’s one beacon of stability you can always lean on. Good old violence. POSTAL: Brain Damaged is a spin-off taking the most outrageous FPS series of all time into a different, skill-based, retro-shooter direction. Say goodbye to an open-world sandbox. Prepare for old-school, stage-based FPS action and cheesy one-liners!

Postal: Brain Damaged provides plenty of laughs with the wild selection of weapons and your ability to urinate on anything at a moment's notice. Jokes aside, while the combat is fast-paced and fun, like many retro shooters, the levels just feel a bit dull.
At its core, this shooter has some of the most impressive level design I’ve seen in a while, and its combat is also pretty good. There was some love put into this title, something that cannot be said at all about the mainline Postal games.
The good news is that Postal: Brain Damaged‘s problems are all fixable. Developer Hyperstrange went out of its way to patch up Elderborn after release, and I’m hopeful the same will be done here. With all of the above issues ironed out, this could be one of the greatest games in its genre. But even with all the problems, this is still pretty much a must-play for anyone who likes these throwback shooters. No amount of bugs or balance problems can make the visuals, level design, and weapons less of a sterling example of how to do the genre right. I’m going to keep an eye out for those patches.
