- Untouchables, the -

Another movie game by ocean ! I wonder how many they made in all those years. The untouchables is a game based on the movie of the same name. The story is about a bunch of police officers in the roaring twenties when crime ran rampant because liquor was banned throughout the entire United States. A man called Elliot Ness forms a group whose purpose is to crack down on the criminals. In the game you have to shoot your way across levels filled with mobsters while collecting evidence so that they can be arrested.

The game follows the standard movie licenced formula with levels taken from scenes of the movie. Among these are an alley and bridge shootout and a sequence where you have to protect a baby in a carriage that has been caught in a firefight. On some of the levels you have to collect evidence and this is usually done by shooting a suspect until he can no longer run or shooting other items until you have 100% evidence. You have a lifebar which is depleted when you are hit by enemy fire but luckily on most of the levels you have infinite ammo. On some like the alley shootout you have to reload though and you can hide behind a wall while you do this or to switch characters. Most of the levels have a time limit though so don't take to long waiting around as you'll most likely not be able to finish the level.

Like so many other movie licenced games this one isn't anything spectacular but the fact that the movie has lots of action i.e. shooting scenes makes it obvious that that is the focus of the game. Some are pretty good like the alley shootout but others are just plain annoying like the one where you have to save the baby. That level is a big pain because when a baddy so much as touches the carriage it's game over. Overal the game is only a standard shooter with few things that raises it above other games but at least it's better than most licenced games.

Overal rating: 6.5/10
