very well polished rail based shooter, loaded with fun liners and leg humping chihuahua's . It's Time Crisis with destructible cover, loads of laughs, and a cool style, and if you got a second input device, you can play 2 player local co-op.

short, but fantastic fun.

Great fun. The jokes are hilarious (don't let SJWs fool you, just because they're insensitive doesn't mean they aren't funny). The only gripe i have with the game is it's only roughly 3 hours long, but the stages have tons of replayability to make up for that.

Here's the recipe. You take:
  • House of the Dead rail shooter-style gameplay;
  • the protagonist with Shadow Warrior's Lo Wang sense of humor;
  • asian-themed jokes, also from Shadow Warrior (also italian-themed, not from SW);
  • tons and tons of stupid criminal mooks from Max Payne;
  • a script full of criminal shenanigans with GTA levels of insanity (also think Guy Ritchie);
  • a dash of obscure satirical humor from South Park.
Okay, now mix carefully, add cool graphic design and generic, but not annoying background music, plus nice score breakdown at the end of each level, adding to replayability....
If you done everything right, you'll get Blue Estate in all its glory.

I've said enough. This is a damn fine game. I recommend you to pick it up (better on sale, tho).
And do not forget to praise the Hua.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

This is not a game for those who are easily offended. The game describes itself as “black-humored”, aka 'dark comedy', therefore, it will make light of subject matters usually considered taboo and controversial.

Blue Estate 'The Game' is a first-person rail shooter developed and published by 'HESAW' which serves as the prologue to a comic book series of the same title. The game features a rail-based shooting mechanic with a story that revolves around black humor, mindless violence, and goofy comic dialogues.

The game places you in the shoes of Tony Luciano, the son of a big time Italian-American mafia Don. The game also lets you play as Clarence, a former Navy Seal turned hitman for the Luciano family that cleans up after Tony's messes.

+ Good graphics with a nice comic book art-style
+ Free comic download that supplements the story
+ Great humor and witty dialogue however...(See CON #3)
+ Voice acting is really good with excellent delivery
+ Very good sound effects
+ Pop culture references and Easter-eggs add to the humor
+ Arcade mode and challenges extends game-time...because (See CON #1)
+ Co-op gameplay
+ Supports multiple input devices (Kb&M, Gamepads, and Leap Motion, possibly even Light Gun, though I've never tried it)

- The story is very short...however (See PRO #7)
- Aim assist cannot be turned off even at the highest difficulty (Patched)
- The dark humor may not appeal to everyone

-/+ The gameplay mechanics of rail shooters didn't really change since the good-ol'-days, however, this game does try to spice things up with some mini-challenges here and there.

SURPRISINGLY GOOD for a rail shooter and is a perfect party game if you have a Steam Machine or Living Room PC. Though some people believe that the genre is from a by-gone age, I think that it just needs a proper subject matter and premise to breathe it new life.

Blue Estate ‘The Game’ is a great example on how to make the rail shooter genre relevant in our modern gaming age. Featuring black (dark) humor with interesting characters and a 'more-or-less' over the top plot, it makes for a good 'B Movie-esque' experience that is both fun and enjoyable.

Priced at a fairly reasonable $12.99 price tag (or your regional equivalent), the game is well worth your attention if you are looking for a casual, arcade, and comical first-person action game. It doesn't take itself seriously and it brings back the fun and excitement of classical arcade games such as Time Crisis and House of the Dead. I highly recommend this at FULL PRICE and is a no-brainer during a SALE.

I was really happy to see a game on Steam that support the Leap Motion Controller. So I couldn't help myself and immediately bought it. Are there even more, or is this the only one? If anyone knows more LM games on Steam, please tell me. Well, this is my opinion after playing a bit:

Wow, I am honestly impressed. For everyone who has a Leap Motion Controller: go now and buy this game! It surprises me how well this works. You control everything - shooting, switching weapons, picking up items, punching guys - with a single finger. The gesture controls are simple, but really well designed and just work. You don't even have to be that accurate when swiping to bounce back a grenade or something. You really do what you want to do in 99% of all cases. With a single finger. The only exception is taking cover, which needs you to open your hand - and also works flawlessly.

As i said, this is a must-buy for all Leap Motion Controller owners. And for everybody else, this might also be some fun, since the game itself isn't too bad either. Question is, are you even interested in a rail-shooter, if you have to control it with your mouse? For many gamers the answer will be no, I guess. See it like this: at least it's way cheaper than ♥♥♥♥ing Rambo, way funnier, and just way better. So if you are even remotely interested in a rail-shooter, this is the better choice of the two. Without a question.

I don't have a lightgun, so I obviously can't say anything about that. But seeing how well they implemented the LM Controller, I just can't imagine that they ♥♥♥♥ed up the lightgun controls. ^^

This game was reviewed using a code sent by the developer.

Blue Estate is a rail shooter, much like the sort of games you would find in an arcade like Time Crisis, or House of the Dead. I haven't played a game like this since Typing of the Dead about a year ago and it was certainly a genre I had a craving for. Blue Estate pleased that hunger extremely well. This is probably the best rail shooter I have played.

I enjoyed this game right the way through from beginning to end. It's an action packed shooter, with brilliant commentary and dialogue throughout.

The game play itself is simple, just aim and shoot, with the added in QTE to dodge other attacks too. There looks to be plenty of replayability too with the arcade mode. Another huge bonus is the local co-op mode, I keep saying, more games need this feature as it just adds to the fun.

I really recommend Blue Estate, even just for comedic value of the dialogue, its well worth your time.

This game learned some bad things from Rambo. For example:
-the weak AK47 sound effect,
-the annoying enemy AI thug/soldier "taunts" (they always say "he's a psycho", "pshychopatic" etc.),

About the game:

-the game is fun for the first few hours, but after that it gets really repetitive and boring,
-the chihuahua "joke" was ok for one try, but after the many many chihuahua sequences it was very frustrating

I give a 6/10. My feelings are mixed.

Pros: - Enjoyable,
- Different style,
- Like a movie.
Cons: - Limited control over the character movement,
- Occasionaly indecent humor, (e.g. Dog scenes get very annoying as you progress)
- Short.
In sum, I can suggest this game if it's in discount.
