Blue Estate (PS4) Review: It’s a State of Mind | Laser Lemming

LL Writes "If you haven’t read Victor Kalvechev’s Blue Estate, you should run down to the nearest comic book store and purchase it in its entirety. It’s a cleverly written, well paced and witty mob romp with all the twists and turns of your average Guy Richie movie except replace the east end of London with Hollywood. It’s basically Rock ‘n’ Rolla crossed with Get Shorty.

It’d be perfect as an adventure game in a similar vein to The Wolf Among Us or the upcoming Tales of Borderlands, there’s a lot of witty dialogue, back stabbing and mob enforcers with an almost unhealthy obsession with David Hasselhoff, but save for a huge shoot out at the end, not a lot of action. So, I was a little apprehensive when I found out that the game adaptation was an on rails shooter.

However, I’m happy to say that Blue Estate the Game is actually a rather good adaptation, retaining much of the wit and silliness that the source material so much fun to read. Like the book, the game doesn’t take itse... (Blue Estate, PC, PS4, Xbox One) 3.5/5
