Customer Reviews
Noir Chronicles: City of Crime is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun gumshoe mystery game What a refreshing change to have a game that doesn't take place in Victorian haunted house. The inspiration of the story appears to be Philip Marlowe, with Fox investigating the death of his former girlfriend Barbara. The puzzles and HOPs are not hard at all, even on hard mode, which allows Hint, skip, plus indicators, and helpful messages. The voiceover for the protagonist has a British accent and sounds older than the character drawn, and one of the bit characters has a mousy voice. Except for these two, the VOs are appropriate to character. It's not a fantastic game, but very enjoyable to play. I hope to see more in this new series perhaps?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thoroughly Enjoyable- One of the Best Stories Ever BASED ON COMPLETED SE Wow... I wasn't expecting this to be as fantastic as I was. I thoroughly enjoyed almost everything about this game. The story was phenomenal and, honestly, one of the best ever. It had a gripping opening and was thoroughly engaging in every single aspect. There were some amazing, completely unexpected twists and turns. Just when I thought things were going to conclude or be figured out, there was yet another curveball thrown. The ending, which others thought was abrupt, I actually quite enjoyed. I didn't feel like it was abrupt, but rather unique, shocking and fitting to the game itself. It's definitely conclusive and the bonus chapter isn't needed. In addition, the overall plot was helped significantly by backstories told through diaries. I just loved this story so much. The only negatives I have are: - The detective wasn't very good at making sure the coast was clear and was knocked out way too many times for plot convenience. - The voice-overs were fantastic but a mix of British and American, making things really confusing location-wise. It makes sense if there is one Briton among the rest of the Americans, but this was about an even half-half split. Other than that I absolutely loved it. The gameplay was fantastic too. It borrowed two minigames from two of my favourite series, in that there were interview question options for one scene, and an interrogation mini-HOS sequence to determine whether someone was lying. Although these only appeared once, they resulted in me being a lot more engrossed with the game. There was a great adventure component, with plus objects included. It varied in difficulty, being quite simple at times and also difficult enough to get me stuck. The HOS were amazing, varied up and incredibly fun to play. I honestly just wanted more and more. The only problem I have with this game, gameplay wise, is the puzzles. This is what prevents it from getting 5 stars. While there were some fun ones that were fairly easy, and some story-related ones like the punching sequence, a lot of them were too difficult for me. Worse, the difficult ones would repeat several times throughout the game. Thankfully the skip button recharged at a decent speed so these weren't too much of a worry. ---- Overall, though, these are only small flaws and shouldn't prevent you from enjoying this incredible story experience. I absolutely loved this from beginning to end and guarantee you I will play it over and over again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short and easy. It was a good game but all the mini games (except the rope knot games) gave clues as to where everything was! I went for the custom option and set the 'click' severity high. I finished the entire game in approx 3 hours. I don't know how best to recommend it. For the story I say "yes", but for value for money "no".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor ending drags down the rating City of Crime starts off with a bang -- literally. And the game continues to move right along, keeping one interested. As others have stated, this game was originally designed with animals as the lead characters. I think they were smart to change the characters to people, but they should have changed Detective Gingertail's name to something more human as well. The first thing I had to do was mess with my screen resolution because some of hidden object items weren't even appearing on the screen. I figured this out myself because BFG's tech people never answered my queries. Puzzles and hidden object scenes were easy and once you're finished in a location you don't go back. It's a fairly short game so you really don't have time to get bored. My biggest complaint was the ending which was abrupt and not very satisfying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed The graphics are nice and the story/plot is okay but the puzzles are cliched. Same old, same old and far too many puzzles for my liking and most of them mind numbingly predictable. Not only that, but they actually repeated a puzzle. I was also disappointed by how short it was. On the upside - quick rechargable hint and skip buttons and the hidden object scenes were good but not frequent enough. Some exciting interactive moments. I've noticed that the first hour of games like these are really exciting but then you buy it and you end up being quite bored by it all. The game developers know that the first hour/demo is critical, so they have to work on that the most. The newer games tend to lose their momentum after the first hour of playing, which is obviously no coincidence. The genre pulled me in. I like that blend of Philip Marlowe, 40's style with the 70's overlay. It had potential but in the end, it didn't live up to my expectations.
