Okay, blue eyes, it's the big sleep for you, you're on a one-way trip to concrete boots land.
The 1920s were a tough time: prohibition was in full swing and Al Capone was the king of the underworld. In The Untouchables, you play Elliot Ness and his fearless band of 'Untouchables' (try it and you get a slap round the face) who must bust Capone's lucrative liquor distribution network.
The game follows the excellent film very closely, six levels packed with action, from collecting evidence damning Capone to killing his top hitman at the end of level six. Like the film there's never a let up in the pace: it's slam-bang action all the way as the player's thrown from one situation to the next. It was this that attracted me to the game when it was first reviewed. So with The Untouchables now available for four quid, if it isn't in your software library soon you're completely hatstand.
