Milanoir Review

by Admir Brkic

Overview

A good portion of my childhood was spent before the internet was a thing (yes, I’m that old!).  That way, most of my indoor past time as a kid went on watching cartoons and most importantly – a whole bunch of Italian Bud Spencer & Terence Hill movies. They still have a cult status in these parts of Balkan with their mix of action, comedy and spectacular fist fights. Now, why am I writing this and what does any of this have with my Milanoir review? Well, Bud Spencer & Terence Hill movies were the first thing I remember when I read the description of the game. “Inspired by the Italian crime flicks of the ’70s,  Milanoir is a pixel-packed action game set in the violent city of Milan”. So I went in expecting a nice cocktail of shootouts, fist fights and plenty of criminal activities. Let’s see what I actually found in the world of Milanoir.

Story

You play as Piero, a slick-haired mobster devoted to his crime syndicate. You spend some time doing the usual tasks that your job requires (murders, extortion, robberies…you know, classic stuff). Eventually, there is that one job where everything that could go wrong goes wrong. While taking down the rival mob boss you end up killing some innocents by mistake and someone even snitches you to the cops as a bonus. Hello, jail time! And this is where our game truly begins. After getting out of the prison, it’s time to wrap up some unfinished business and find the person who snitched on you. Also, murder them but that goes without saying.
