Excerpt: If you saw the movie and fell in love with it, no words cast upon you, by these first lines, could prevent the game's installation. If you didn't see it (reasons do exist), I do not recommend retaining this tender experience,...
Summary: The game gives you the opportunity to play through the events of the film - leading up to and following the break down of the heist - from the perspective of each character. You get to experience those parts of the movie that were only suggested, delve further into the world of Reservoir Dogs and find out what happened at the diamond store.
Excerpt: Drive-in critic Joe Bob Briggs once called Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs a “dissemble the squad” picture. Like Snatch or Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing, it follows a group of criminals who are trying to steal something…in this case, a bunch of diamonds. Despite how careful and professional our anti-heroes are, there’s an undercover cop in their midst, and the whole plan unravels. Pretty standard stuff for a heist movie.
Excerpt: En ce mois de septembre un peu plus chargé au rayon sorties, un des premiers de cordée se trouve être l’adaptation d’un des plus grands succès de sieur Quentin Tarantino : Reservoir Dogs . S’agissant d’un film mythique tant pour son action que ses dialogues, sa bande sonore et son scénario archi connus, on pouvait se demander quels subterfuges les développeurs de chez Volatile allaient user afin de rendre ce jeu à peu près digne de son devancier cinématographique.
Pros: Ambiance générale, Bande son, Nostalgie
Cons: Trop court, Trop facile, Trop cher... pour son contenu
Excerpt: Riding on the major success of Tarantino's first indy film, Reservoir Dogs offers players -- wait, the movie came out in '92? What kind of goatee-sporting Spock universe is this? Eidos' Reservoir Dogs , though fourteen years late, offers players a chance to live out their favorite moments from the pop culture smash film. Sadly, they're better off renting the movie.
Conclusion: If you like third person shooters that only take a few hours to beat then pick up Reservoir Dogs. If you also like games where random enemies pop out of no where then get Reservoir Dogs because that happens too often in this game. I did enjoy this game for a little bit, but once I got to the second car driving stage I was getting pissed off, for the most part these stages made this game bad. Oh yeah and all the swearing didn't help either, it gets old too fast.
