Reservoir Dogs review

Crap games to the left of us, good games to the right, here we are - stuck in the middle with this

If only the gameplay stayed as interesting as the presentation, then we'd have a killer movie adaptation on our hands.

Whether you're driving or shooting, Reservoir Dogs feels workmanlike; not bad, necessarily, but you've already done this a million times. It doesn't help that the levels are repetitive and generic, and that some of them are recycled for different missions.

There are a couple of interesting twists, though, the most notable of which gives players the option to play like a "Psychopath" (ignore cover and run around shooting everyone) or a "Professional" (take hostages, use them as leverage to take other hostages and do as little harm as possible).

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
