  • Conclusion: It can be tough to be too critical of a game that’s available at a low price and offers enough content to warrant the price tag, but at the same time it’s a game that falls notably short of its own potential.

  • Excerpt: As a fan of puzzle games, I was interested in James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes, as the 3DS needs more great puzzle games in the library. You start the game as a contestant on a 60s game show and soon enough, a chain of murders unfolds.

James Noirs Hollywood Crimes Review

PlayDevil
17 January 2012
  • Summary: " James Noir's Hollywood Crimes " is hugely underwhelming. In its favour it does offer a range of reasonably good puzzles, but everything in between them feels tacky and laughable. I suppose if all you want are some new mindbenders to pass the time James Noir’s 140 could be enough of a draw, but you...

7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The 3DS has had a lackluster first year. Out of the eighteen games we’re reviewed for the system here at Diehard GameFAN, we’ve only been able to solidly recommend a few titles. Even then they are quasi-sequels or remakes.

James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes 3D Review (3DS)

Yet Another Review Site
28 December 2011
  • Excerpt: A promising title that fails to live up to the hype The 3DS seems to be having an identity crisis at the moment; the best titles are rehashes of the (admittedly impressive) Nintendo library, and most original titles fall guilty of “Wii-itis” – that annoying thing whereby the device gimmick is...
  • Pros: Interesting premise, the 2D puzzles are sometimes quite challenging, the story makes some sense, presentation style is quirky
  • Cons: It’s far too short and predictable, the puzzles get repetitive, there’s little replay value once you’ve beaten it, does a poor job of explaining the rules of certain sections, most uses of the 3D are rudimentary and/or somewhat pointless

  • Summary: With the cinematic beginning the game has great promise but its dual storyline of helping the FBI and being on a TV show does let it down. The game's saving grace is the rock solid puzzles.
