    Blues and Bullets is without a doubt the most true, and also most effective, crime noir game we have to date, with a masterful understanding of the themes and visual motifs that comprise a noir tale, and an understanding on how to work within those without being clichéd or trite.

    The Blues and Bullets series is off to an exhilarating and twisted start.

    Eliot Ness' battle with Al Capone is quite unique for the genre and manages to set up an interesting little series in a couple of hours.

    A strong start for A Crowd of Monsters’ Noir adventure. Stylish, dripping in atmosphere, and compelling enough to keep you on the hook for the next episode. It has its faults, not all of which may turn out to be a problem when the series is finished, but for now they are outshone by the things this first episode does right.

Although a little slow to start, it slowly builds, and by the time it kicks in proper, it really has you gripped. It has a similar sort of atmosphere to the very first Max Payne, but is more about slower paced exploration and story than fast paced gun action (although there is some of that). I would love to highly recommend you pick up the first 2 episodes, but unfortunately they'll most likely leave you wanting more, which won't be forthcoming as it seems the development team are no more. Worth getting on discount though for sure. Expand
