    Sadly, developer Volatile misses the mark. [Jan. 2007, p.63]
  2. Neither a good action game on its own merits, nor quality fan service, Reservoir Dogs is an out and out failure.

    This promising material is all remorselessly forced through the sausage-grinder of inept execution... About as much fun as having your ear cut off. [Nov 2006, p.77]

    All dogs go to heaven? Not hardly. This one rots somewhere else. [Dec. 2006, p.86]

    Repetitive gameplay and limited replayability and difficulty settings are just the tip of the iceberg of a game that could've explored so much more of the characters from the movie, but just barely scratched the surface of the film.

    In Reservoir Dogs, the game, you might as well be seeing " The Max Fisher Players Present Reservoir Dogs," but minus the charm, and with a bad shooter/driving game as the price of admission. [Jan. 2007, p.69]
  7. Just when it seemed the industry had figured out how to turn some movies into fun gameplay experiences, with Reservoir Dogs, its as if they haven’t learned a thing since "E.T."

Walking on a sunny day in the streets, being bad. I feel the sun burning. I know there are lots of other games that bring that asmosphere too and I like those games also!! (Far Cry, Crysis).

Therefore I give 'Reservoir Dogs' a score of "8". Full Review »
