Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days
Top Critic Average
Reservoir Dogs is an isometric action with tactical elements, which is repelled from one concept: enter the building, take the money and go out alive. Unfortunately, after the tenth same type mission this game becomes absolutely boring. Bloody Days lacks a full-fledged story, interesting and well-developed characters, and instead has broken game mechanics and boring missions. You simply have literally nothing to do in this project, even if you are a big fan of virtual violence and action.

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is a top-down shooter that excels at the minimum. The replayability may be lacking, but it's definitely worth at least one playthrough.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is a confused game. The license seems wasted, since the game fails to use its source material in a meaningful way. Ignore the license, and what you get is a top-down shooter that favors precision over bullet spray but adds a badly implemented time-rewind mechanic that squanders any potential it may have had. A few people can get some enjoyment out Bloody Days, but many will only need a quick glance to realize that this just isn't going to work out.
If you're a fan of the original film series of Reservoir Dogs, then let me set you straight, go and play something better. And if by the chance you have not seen the movie till now, then I'll highly recommend you to watch as soon as you can. And I'm warning you, do NOT ever think of playing Bloody Days

Even though Bloody Days tries to walk the walk and talk the talk, ultimately it feels less like a creative homage to a cult film classic and more like a shallow imitation with a hint of Tarantino flair.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days attempts to pay homage to its source material, but it fails capture the essence of the cult-classic film that inspired it.
There's something Faustian about it: in striking a deal to carry such a powerful banner, it's gotten attention that games of its class would never get. Ironically, it's that banner that invites the most bitter criticism for a game that certainly could have done a lot worse.
While it may superficially retread a similarly desensitised violence found in the original film, little else could be compared from one to the other. In fact, Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is better an example of Lionsgate's misuse of the original property, shelling it out every so often for some quick cash here-and-there.
A neat mechanic that gets old quickly in this otherwise forgettable twin stick shooter.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is a game with sky high potential that is crushed by its lazy execution.
