For fans of cult-classic crime cinema, there are enough fun sequences sprinkled throughout to get a kick out of. However, Milanoir doesn’t provide enough polish in its gameplay to really let these moments shine through.

So all things considered, I had a pretty great experience with his game. The gameplay can get somewhat repetitive and there are some things here and there which can play to Milanoir’s strengths… But also it’s weaknesses. The fun characters of Milanoir and their interactions with each other, the fun and dumb world established in this game, and the environments explored is what made it for me.

An excellent game filled with all the things to love about video games. Cool characters, great music, sweet story, and graphics that fit the game perfectly. It’s just too bad that the difficulty spike absolutely killed the experience for me. I don’t rage quit very many games, but when I do… a controller usually dies a horrifying and disturbing death. Don’t worry. No controllers were harmed in the process of this review.

Milanoir has the potential to be a grat game on the Nintendo Switch, but the aiming mechanics aren't fit for the system, and consistently get in the way. Its revenge plot is also just way to dark and without any redemptive qualities.

While Milanoir offers up something very different on Switch, and manages to avoid repeating itself too much, the overall unevenness of the experience can be hard not to be frustrated by. Some sequences play well, and will give you some push back, but others can prove to be maddening and seem to only get cleared through an element of luck on top of your skills. If you’re determined to you’ll get through it but for mere casual fans without a patch it will probably aggravate more than entertain.

Milanoir may look the part, but it certainly doesn't play like it thanks to finicky controls and a cheap difficulty.

Milanoir has a surprisingly awesome gritty story with some slick story cutscenes you play through. The action will kick your teeth in and can be slightly frustrating at times but it's over the top action will satisfy your action movie craving and not leave your wallet swimming with the fishes.

If you want a quick pick up and put down 2D shooter and are happy to ignore the story then there’s definitely satisfaction to be found in Milanoir and although I played it on PC I feel like it would be most at home in its portable form on the Switch. You’ll get frustrated more than a few times with the controls and lack of direction but there are moments where you hit your stride in combat which can feel almost as cool as a 70’s action movie.

Overall Milanoir is an excellent entry into the genre and worth your time and money.
