The easiest way to sell this game is to think of it as Sin City the RPG. I mean this in the most flattering way possible. Streets of Bedlam is no simple knock off. It takes the themes and look of neo-noir and runs amok with it. Anything borrowed is given its own spin so it stays unique in its own right while still being recognizable to the source. This is apparent in the text as well as the art. I have to give a shout out to the illustrator, Shawn Gaston, for creating some evocative images that pay tribute to Frank Miller's style without flat out copying it. The art goes a long way to keep your imagination in the right place while reading through the text.

Inside you will find a great setting and some fun additions to Savage Worlds. These include Character Archetypes, Interrogations, and a very clever Investigation system. Combine that with a great setting and a solid Plot Point campaign and Streets of Bedlam doesn't disappoint.

I'm glad to have Streets of Bedlam on my shelf. It provides a very good take on gritty neo-noir investigations. The ultra-violence rules make emulating the source material a breeze and the art is pleasure to look at. Best of all, it looks fun as all hell. Savage Worlds fans take notice! This is definitely something unique and well worth checking out.
