The most important parts of LA Noire have aged beautifully, with incredibly detailed faces, diverse characters, and unique, challenging crimes to solve as a detective. The top-notch writing and voice acting bring 1940s Los Angeles to life, but are let down by a dull open world with frequent frame rate drops. Aside from difficulty aiming in gun fights, it's a smart port with accurate motion controls and the ability to play almost entirely touchscreen, too.

Still arguably the best detective game, and an impressively ambitious example of adult storytelling – despite a few structural and narrative flaws.

Improved interrogation options help these cold cases hold up six years after they originally released. However, the fantastic open-world setting is still underutilized

L.A. Noire isn't the prettiest project, but it still holds up because there isn't anything quite like it even today.

Even though the changes in this remastered version are subtle, L.A. Noir holds up as the ultimate detective simulator. If you didn't play it back in 2011 and love the noir aesthetic and detective films, then you don't need any clues to know that this is a must have

Nintendo Switch offers the best version of this remastered Rockstar gem thanks to the use of the touchpad, which gives a new dimension for the investigation parts. A great game that takes us back in time.

Finally Nintendo Switch receives a high level port. L.A Noire was ahead of his time and still looks great. Its complex narrative not only delves into a genre not too common as the detective, but also is a crude reflexion of the USA after the Second World War. A must-have.
