Genre: Interactive Story

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.

Blues and Bullets is shaping up to be an intriguing game, but it may be worth waiting for the complete package.

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.

We sure hope that the wait for Episode 3 doesn't take another eight months. While Episode 2 doesn't quite hit all the targets, the mature and creepy story already has its hooks in us. Episode 2 also adds layers to Elliot Ness by exploring his past and his inner demons. The stylish visuals are at full swing, it's just disappointing that most of the gameplay in Episode 2 amounts to nothing more than repetitive gunplay sections that aren't all that much fun to play. We're still excited to see how everything will unfold in this five episode series, so long as the gameplay musters up more variety.
