About This Content

Eliot Ness, the former leader of the legendary Untouchables, wished only to spend the rest of his days working in his diner, not dwelling too much on the cesspit of corruption his city, Santa Esperanza, had degenerated into.

But things rarely go as planned.

When children suddenly start to disappear and the police just simply a blind eye, Eliot decides to take the law into his own hands, track down the culprit and bring him to justice by any means necessary, even if he has to abandon his dreams of a peaceful life and again get embroiled in shootouts with the usual array of assassins and hoodlums.

Helped by various characters from some unexpected places, the player must guide Eliot through the increasingly morbid and decadent scenarios searching for clues to solve the cases in the five episodes of this season's Blues and Bullets.

After leaving Ness impersonating Burke at the end of the previous episode, you're facing now Ivankov, an ex-right hand of Capone. However, what you'll uncover is beyond imagination... And you're still haunted by the past and the loss of your friends...

That second episode is beginning by a flashback of Ness meeting Delphine Dockers, his mistress, just before everything goes downhill, like hinted in the first episode. However, while you'll learn a little more about your protagonist, you'll be soon back to present, in front of the submarine that is the hiding place of Ivankov. Whether you're playing honest or not will have no impact, in the end, you'll have some good rail shooting action sequence...

While you're nowhere to find Sofia Capone, the episode is alternating between past and present and between actions and adventure: indeed, while the main core of the game is searching for clues and choosing your answers (Blues and Bullets being influenced by Telltale's games), like in the previous game, you have some shooting sequences, where you're gunning down enemies. You don't have to search for a cover, the game does it for you. However, I felt that these sequences were longer than in the first episode.

Another feature coming back is the detective mode, where you're searching for clues about your hypothesis and linking them to questions that are posed. Now, it's happening into the submarine and it will reveal in reality two realities of what happened. After that, Ness will explain the situation to Milton, his sidekick, like he did in the first episode.

However, the game is in third person and imagine my surprise when I got into an horror sequence, in first person, in the police headquarters, with a flashlight as a good friend? While I knew I was into Ness's mind, it was still freaky and you're expecting to see a Sandman or Slender around the corner.

The graphics are still in back and white, with red being only highlighted. However, the gunfights were more colored because of the flames. However, it doesn't mean that the developers will head towards full color. Indeed, this black-and-white choice is like watching an old movie or watching a noir subject.

The soundtrack is as usual marvellous, like the voice acting.

I was happy to see the second episode incoming and while I'm kinda disappointed that the game was more focused on Ness's past than the search of Sofia Capone, you still have a good story behind it: indeed, you still don't know what about the children being kept prisoners (though heavy hints were dropped).

However, be aware that I was victim of a bug at the end of scene 8 that made reboot the computer because the next scene couldn't load and that beginning my first playthrough, I couldn't see any clues apart for one or two (not appearing at all), meaning that I got stuck in the detective part in the submarine as I couldn't go forward.

Last thing, if the developers are considering episodes as DLC, it would be better to have each of them as separate content, with a season pass still avalaible. Telltale is selling a whole season together generally, which is easier when it comes to update the game. Here, people that got Episode 1 have to buy the whole season while Episode 2 is shown as a separate DLC on Steam.

After waiting about 8 months for episode 2, i was expecting it to be kinda dissapointing, but it's not, in fact it's more interesting than the 1st episode imo
There's a pretty interesting first person segment in the game which sports quite amount of detail in the environments,it also explores more of Elliot Ness's past, and from what i've seen the choices you make really change the outcome of the game, and it even has impact on the dialogue, a rare thing these days in these types of games.
The only negatives i found while playing episode 2 were the awkard animations on the characters and the simplistic tps shootouts.
The soundtrack is also amazing, and the voice actors to a great job
Blues and Bullets Episode 2 - 8/10

Fantastic.Like the first Episode it manages to deliver an atmospheric and amazingly written episode.Only with more interesting flashback scenes and a nightmare sequence in the tradition of games like max payne.Oh, and a lot more fun gun play.Though at cost of a slower pace in the story progress, which in my opinon does not apply since you get a lot more to know of the background storys from some of the characters and in my conclusion already some subtle hints at the twist of the plot.
