Yes the game isn’t perfect and it still has a few problems that haven’t been entirely addressed such as slightly clunky controls during the more tightly spaced areas, the gunplay and the not so overly specific dialogue system, but for a six-year-old game it still holds up extremely well and as mentioned earlier, some aspects have yet to be bettered.
L.A. Noire is a very unique game and definitely one worth playing if you like detective thrillers. While some of the cases can be very macabre, it really is a very fun adventure throughout. If you’ve played the game before, I’m not sure playing on the go is the most compelling reason to buy it, but for newcomers, you won’t find another game quite like this on the Switch.
In the end, L.A. Noire holds up. It’s a little odd to play as an open world game because of it’s strong focus on story, but the immersion is unreal. Every aspect of my detective work felt like a genuine adventure in a world I could never be a part of. There’s plenty of content here to be played, and I strongly recommend giving L.A. Noire some time, even if you’re not a shooting, car chase thrill seeker. The focus are the cases themselves, and that’s awesome.
