Milanoir takes an appealing aesthetic with a promising setup and turns it into a dutiful slog without much of a payout. It's basic, it's petty, and it's laughably crude. It is a noir title that really doesn't have a whole lot to say.

An interesting shooter that reminds italian noir with some Tarantino's ideas. A good indie, but some unnecessary difficulty spikes ruin the overall flow.

Milanoir is a amalgam of 1970's exploitation cinema and 1980's video games that captures all the grit and violence of the former and the difficulty and frustration of the latter. The story is well written and the game flows between different action sequences and cinematic breaks that keep both gameplay and the story fresh. There are some issues with hit detection and death animations that will frustrate you at times, but the game rewards you for getting through each sequence and makes it worth the effort.

If you're up for a challenging game, this might be right up your alley. However, if you're the type of gamer who prefers a more casual flow to a game, then don't bother – you'll just end up frustrated with controller holes in your wall.
