Review: James Noir's Hollywood Crimes (Nintendo 3DS)

Diehard GameFAN
21 March 2012
  • Summary: James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes is not only a good game, but it’s one of the best exclusives for the Nintendo 3DS this year. With over 140 puzzles to encounter, the ability to pick and choose what puzzles you do in story mode and the chance to unlock extra optional puzzles for fun make this game a lot of fun.

Intriguing puzzle-based whodunit with mild violence.

Common Sense Media
15 March 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that James Noir's Hollywood Crimes is a puzzle-solving game wrapped around a whodunit mystery. The game has occasional rough language and features some mild of violence, such as a body hanging from a noose and a character getting knocked out, but it is no more violent than a movie from the 1960s. The focus is on solving brainteasers, not action.

James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes 3D

2 March 2012
  • 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. Hollywood Crimes is not without a sense of charm and may well appeal to budding super sleuths, or anyone who’d rather sit with the stylus and a good brain teaser than take on epic adventure or blow things up.

  • 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. Since you came off as a genius on the show, the FBI approaches you to lend a hand with the case. Why? Because the murderer is leaving behind clues, but not the usual kind.

James Noirs Hollywood Crimes Review

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 will have to ignore the dull plot.
