This afternoon, Big Star Games dropped the first official trailer out Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days on YouTube. It's brief and to the point, but it's got one major problem: The characters look little to nothing like their real movie counterparts. Mr. Brown (originally played by Quentin Tarantino) is now a bald thug-looking man, Mr. Blue (Edward Bunker) is now bald as well, Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) is much younger, Mr. Orange (Tim Roth) looks like a surfer who got lost, Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) looks like a cousin of Orange with well-trimmed facial hair, and Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) is the only character that looks like he matches his original look in any form. Whether this is from not being able to get the rights to their images or Big Star is just putting their own spin on this universe is unknown.
Then comes the cut-scene footage and gameplay and right at the start, you see them robbing a bank, which is totally not from the movie as the entire plot of the film is based around a jewelry store robbery gone wrong. The film nod at the end with the camera looking up at three men from the trunk even has Mr. Blue where Mr. White should be. So not only does this not look like Reservoir Dogs, it doesn't even resemble the story of the film. Such high hopes for a game immediately dashed in less than 30 seconds as the game looks to already fall into the "bad game based on a good movie" genre. But you can judge for yourself with the trailer below. What do you think of the game?
