Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days – Review

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is a cartoony top-down shooter with an interesting twist. The game is set in the Reservoir Dogs universe but the objective is to get through each group of enemies, steal as much as you can, and make it out alive; but the little extra spice about this is the Rewind System.

The Rewind System lets you control one character, do your thing, then by dying or by pressing the space bar, you can rewind time and control another character. As you control the second character your first character will mimic the same things you previously did and you can work together with yourself to finish the mission. I give Big Games (Devs) credit where credit is due. Its a really nice feature and you don’t see it often, if not ever, in games these days. But on the other hand it does it frustrating when it forces you to switch from character to character constantly but if you like a challenge you’ll like this feature.

Graphics aren’t anything special. Its nice to look at but don’t expect to be blown away. While playing I couldn’t help but compare it to the Hotline Miami series. It’s like Hotline Miami except it really isn’t. I wouldn’t say this is ‘harder’ but it definitely takes more time to get into the system and depends on more planning ahead.

I wont lie. When I saw that it was called “Reservoir Dogs” I had almost no hope for it. Mainly because movies being turned into games haven’t been good, really ever. But I’m happy to say this holds up as its own game and doesn’t just ride the movie title for attention. I give Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days a 7.5 out of 10.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is on the steam store for $14.99.
