Since forever I’ve been a pretty big fan of noir-style stories, whether they be literary, in movies, or in games. The classic hard-boiled detective walking the streets of the seedy underbelly of the city, the whole nine yards. Pecaminosa makes pretty good use of this, with you playing through a sort of old school adventure talking to people and often needing to get a bit dirty in order to keep things moving along or settle scores of some kind. Mechanically it feels a bit dated, in line with the look, but that can also be a bit frustrating when you’d really prefer a bit more accuracy. If you’re in the mood for something with that general moody feel it’s a good choice, just perhaps not a guaranteed hit depending on your specific tastes.
