Well, I've gone ahead and bought this game because I liked the premise. I like these management simulator games quite a lot, and this one seemed right up my alley. Now, I freely admit, I have not clocked up much game-time with this game, because there keeps popping up with an error message during game-play, with some kind of memory exception. You hit 'okay', and the box keeps appearing to the point you are forced to Alt-F4 out of the game.

It does auto-save each 'day', so you don't loose all that much when it happens. Its just annoying.

Beyond basic programming glitching, which is true to form for Excalibur Games, the game isn't utterly awful. That being said, its not brilliant either. Its very basic, very rudimentary, and very easy to go "Okay, done that, now what?" 99% of the game is actually sitting there watching little bikes/vans zoom around the city, doing automated tasks, and bringing in money. You need Rep Stars to actually unlock things, which you get from doing priority deliveries, being the best company of the week, and 'achievement' style missions. Again, its very repetitive, and very dull. You will spend an inordinate amount of time just watching the ticker go by.

Graphics wise, its not that advanced. They're not hideous, but they're stuck in the late 90's early 00's. Any fans of Capitalism or Industry Giant will feel a sense of de-ja-vu looking at your 'city'. The 'strategic view' is reasonably helpful, but not in any real way that can help you with strategic planning.

In terms of gameplay, what little of it I've actually done before I got fed up of the constant crashes, its not bad at all. Its certainly educational in the realms of how the Postal system works.

I was so looking forward to this game, one of those titles that you keep an eye on the release date and get.

Unfortunately this game really disappointed me. Not so much the pathetic tutorial which was very hard to follow and required too much reading of text, or the graphics which are not very pleasing on the eyes, but the actual game mechanics were just so bizarre and very unintuitive. It made me think this game was made by a single person learning how to program a computer rather than be a realistic contender for a title that cost nearly ten quid to buy.

If you're looking for some kind of game for delivery of products, maybe a simulation of the big names like TNT, DHL or Royal Mail, or an updated version of Road to Riches, sadly this game isn't it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Shock and horror ... I didn't actually dislike this game! This is probably because I am in my fifties and still remember ZX spectrum games. I also find the faster paced time management games absolutely impossible to get to grips with.

I had no problems installing Post Master (PC DVD) and on my son's gaming PC it ran absolutely fine.

Now I am not saying that Post Master is a particularly exciting game, but for me it certainly has it's merits. Once I had completed the tutorial which I have to agree was unnecessarily long, I thoroughly enjoyed running my post office business and I liked the fact that the game incorporates a competitor who will try to offer a faster and cheaper delivery service. I'll admit that you have to spend an inordinately amount of time watching and waiting for deliveries to be made and mail to be collected although you can offset some of that time by planning your next strategy.

So to sum up Post Master for the PC can be enjoyable if you like slow paced relaxing gameplay, but it could be improved by removing about two thirds of the tutorial and by speeding up some of the more mundane gameplay such as delivery and collecting of mail.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
RETRO FEEL
==========
I like retro games such as Space Invaders and Paperboy. So I thought this be an updated game that'd I'd love.

POOR SOUND
==========
The accompanying sound/soundtrack was uninteresting and uninspiring.

POOR GRAPHICS
=============
They seemed to have been inspired by an artist taken back in time to 1984.

POOR CONCEPT
============
Running a post office in a poorly executed fashion is not the ideal concept for a game.

RECOMMENDED
===========
No. I played it twice and won't play it again.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I like simulation games as I can take them into hospital with me when I have to stay; at least they keep me occupied.

The premise is basic:

- build your post office and mail delivery company; send your employees out with the mail and hope to make a profit so you can buy more post offices, delivery vans, employees of different sorts, etc.

Even though it was played on a computer that is used for games as well as work I found it slow at times.

The introduction/how-to guide at the start is interminably soul suckingly long. I believe it is too long for a child to sit though. Game players are not stupid (contrary to popular believe) and we really don’t need the minutiae of the game play spelt out for us. The maker should really take a tip from other game manufacturers and give us the basic information, in brief, with the help button if we need any further assistance.

I am not sure if it was my problem but it was a problem with the text but I found I was struggling to read the lettering and words within the long pile of text. This is one of my "better" days so I'd hate to think what it would be like on one of my not-so-good days.

There are a number of books in the game which are annoying and can (most of the time) require a restart. Things like not accepting purchases, item placements, new routes, and so on.

It reminds me of an early seems game where you set your task and then waited for something to happen:

- earthquake/fire (Sim City)
- visitors/breakage/hunger/unclean (The Sims)

The problem is that we are spoilt by the games that are available now on PC and this is very, very old school in its ideas and coding. Having said that it is still an enjoyable game and will accompany me to hospital as it requires very little in the way of brainwork or concentration - perfect if you are ill and not quite with it.
