  • Summary: Eliot Ness, the former leader of the legendary Untouchables, wished only to spend the rest of his days working in his diner, not dwelling too much on the cesspit of corruption his city, Santa Esperanza, had degenerated into.

    Eliot Ness, the former leader of the legendary Untouchables, wished only to spend the rest of his days working in his diner, not dwelling too much on the cesspit of corruption his city, Santa Esperanza, had degenerated into.

    But things rarely go as planned.

    When children suddenly start to disappear and the police just simply a blind eye, Eliot decides to take the law into his own hands, track down the culprit and bring him to justice by any means necessary, even if he has to abandon his dreams of a peaceful life and again get embroiled in shootouts with the usual array of assassins and hoodlums.

    Helped by various characters from some unexpected places, the player must guide Eliot through the increasingly morbid and decadent scenarios searching for clues to solve the cases in the five episodes of this season's Blues and Bullets.

    A surprise reprisal of the elegantly wasted, gripping noir thriller starring the “Untouchable” Eliot Ness, broadens it’s dramatic ambition and offers one of the finest, grittiest interactive movie experiences available on the PC right now. For fans of dark crime fiction, this is an absolute must play.

    This second chapter of the graphic adventure developed by a Spanish studio improved what it offered in its first installment. It features flashbacks to discover the past of the protagonist and some striking scenes, along with a visual appearance similar to the Sin City saga.

    Episode 2: Shaking the Hive, for what it’s worth, benefits from better pacing than Episode 1 and it doesn’t waste as much time with Eliot performing ordinary tasks. Still, there is little in either Episode 1 or Episode 2 so far to separate Blues and Bullets from the middle of the pack. My recommendation at this point – stay tuned.

    The second episode of Blues and Bullets falls short in enough ways to make it easy to recommend staying away from it at this point until all five episodes are out in the wild.
