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.

A great concept that summarily misfires on all cylinders, Milanoir is an admittedly stylish retro shooter that is simply too frustrating and poorly designed to recommend.

While Milanoir does a whole lot of things right with its fair share of positives and highly stylized aspects, it still manages to drop the ball on some key elements like crucial gameplay mechanics. Regardless, this game is a fun play, and we'd say it's definitely worth your money, assuming you are looking more for a solid story and over the top experience than you are for the smoothest, frame-perfect gameplay.

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.

Aggressively unpleasant and a chore to play, Milanoir is a bloody dud of a tale. A slick visual style is the only positive to take away from this lousy slog of a game.

Milanoir is a twin stick shooter that offers a nice atmosphere, but it suffers from gameplay and difficulty issues that make him very frustrating.

Milanoir provides pleasure in its own roundabout, corny, lighthearted way. Sure, its combat is very obtuse, awkward, and confounding. I became emotionally detached from Piero as his dense, cocky attitude drained my soul. But with a few neat mechanics and a well-rendered art style, this whimsical crime-film imitation flatters some of its ancestors and lightly entertains with the same campy charm.

Wasted potential. An action game where the most important parts are flawed. It's a shame, because the atmosphere of Milan and gangster movies are delicious like Italian spaghetti sauce.
