Description: A dark and violent crime thriller set against the backdrop of 1940’s Los Angeles, now in stunning virtual reality. L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files places you directly in the shoes of Detective Cole Phelps as you solve brutal crimes, plots and conspiracies inspired by real cases from 1947 Los Angeles, one of the most corrupt and violent times in L.A. history.
Featuring seven cases rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files adds new layers of immersion and realism to Rockstar Games’ atmospheric crime thriller as you solve select cases from the blockbuster original game, spanning mysteries from the Detective desks of Traffic, Arson, Homicide, and more.
Review: Those of us hoping for a full L.A. Noire game in VR will be bitterly disappointed with the length of this…experience. Don’t get me wrong here, I found myself fuller immersed in the L.A. Noire world and it looks amazing and really makes you feel part of the game. But this is NOT a full game at all, just a small number of “files” that you can solve. While far from perfect, especially when it comes to the controls I still found myself getting used to them in time. For me, this is just too pricy. If it was half the current price I would be suggesting you download it right away, but for its full price, I would definitely wait unless you are a MASSIVE fan of the original L.A. Noire game.
