Game release: “Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days” (PC)

Quentin Tarantino’s penchant for violence can often be seen in various videogame forms, but Big Star Games‘ top-down arcade strategy shooter Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days seems to get the movie adaptation right this time.

There was a pretty bad PS2 game back in the days, but it passed me by, which just shows how far movie adaptations have come that indie developers have a go at them, despite Lionsgate being involved as well. I have to say that the original movie wasn’t really my thing, probably because I’m not into heist movies (even if I love the GTA games), but I found the concept of gangsters being named Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink and Mr. White, quite hilarious. The famous cutting-ear-off torture scene also stuck to my mind, so the release of this game caught me by surprise, to say the least.

If you’ve played Hotline Miami (reviewed here), then the top-down perspective with lots of blood splattering will be familiar to you. But even if the frantic, gory action shares the combo highscore arcade heritage, the gameplay of robbing banks and being involved in shoot-outs is different, mainly because of a time-rewind mechanic. Controlling different characters at the same time also adds to a more strategic approach. It all looks and sounds extremely good and makes me even more excited to play it than watch the movie.

The game is out now for PC with a 10% discount that will last until May 26, 5PM UTC. It’s also possible to buy the soundtrack that is pretty cool as well. Hopefully the collaboration with Lionsgate bears even more interesting cinema/gaming fruits.
