Reservoir Dogs : PlayStation 2 Description
Expanded Description Wiry director Quentin Tarantino's debut film about a group of colorfully named criminals and a diamond heist gone awry is the jumping point for this video game adaptation. Instead of focusing entirely on the heist's aftermath, the game lets players experience the events leading up to the warehouse rendezvous. The non-linear storyline, done in classic Tarantino style, explores each character's point of view in a number of action sequences. Players will engage in high-speed chases, daring escapes, abductions, gunfights, and more.
The game also includes a rating system based on the actions performed by a particular gangster. Characters who approach situations with a minimum of force will receive a "professional" rating, while depraved acts of violence will earn them a "psycho" rating. To re-create the 1992 film's atmosphere, the developers acquired the rights to use the complete soundtrack, including the signature song "Stuck in the Middle with You." Actor Michael Madsen also lends his voice and likeness to the memorable role of Mr. Blonde.
