L.A. Noire Remastered Review

Nov 21, 2017

Team Bondi’s period noir mystery set against the backdrop of 1940s Los Angeles was so different from the gritty, open-world games that existed around it. The studio would ultimately shut down, and no sequel or game like it would ever appear, but thanks to Rockstar Games for enhancing and re-releasing L.A. Noire for a new generation of players to experience this unique game. For the sake of clarity, I’m calling this game and review a “remaster”. L.A. Noire is at times uncomfortable, but accurate to the era of post-war Los Angeles, and stays intriguing throughout.
