L.A. Noire Remastered
Top Critic Average
L.A. Noire is a really great experience that allows you to try the detective work in the post-war Los Angeles. If you haven't played it yet, don't hesitate.

L.A. Noire is a game that feels better on this current generation of consoles over the last. The ability to replay cases gives plenty of reasons to get perfect ratings on each one. The investigations are deep, and rewarding as you solve each one. L.A. Noire has been given a second chance, and while flawed it is like nothing else out there today. Whether you are returning to 1940s Los Angeles, or starting new, L.A. Noire being remastered for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch is worth every bit of the experience, like a modern day adventure game.
L.A. Noire remains a fully unique experience, and a game that deserves its second round.
If, like me, you missed out in 2011 when LA Noire first launched, I highly recommend trying it now on Switch (or on PC, PS4, and XB1 where it was recently released. The Switch version feels right at home and has me clamoring that somehow Rockstar will bring more of its catalog to the console.
Despite its age L.A. Noire is still a great game which has to be played by fans of the crime genre. MotionScan still looks as good as back then and the Nintendo Switch version with its newly added Touch Controls stands out as the best and most interesting version for me.

L.A. Noire is still a fascinating experience to go through even though over half a decade has passed. While it might not be the remaster to bring back returning players, it is absolutely worth it for people who never got a chance to experience it the first time.
L.A. Noire is a title to be recommended, which can not really be criticized for what it is but in its technical accomplishment. Many parts have not been remastered. A game that must be played at least once in a lifetime, as it is a classic that still today shows peaks hardly achieved by other games.

If you are someone that never played L.A. Noire back in 2011, then you shouldn't miss this remastered version of Rockstar Games' detective storytelling adventure. With the choice to play it on the go with fun Nintendo Switch gameplay mechanics, or see it with upgraded textures and up to 4K resolutions on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, it would be a shame for any player to miss this iconic game... Now can we please have a remastered Bully, pretty please?
On the whole, any concerns that the Switch would get a watered down or poor port of L.A. Noire are well and truly quashed. 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. If you have never played the game before then this is a great way to experience it.
While Team Bondi may be no more, L.A. Noire still lives on with this remastered version. It may not get the 4K support that is available on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, the Nintendo Switch version brings the portability factor while still looking very good itself. For those that missed out on the original release, you should definitely look into investigating L.A. Noire on the Nintendo Switch.
