Customer Reviews
Noir Chronicles: City of Crime is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the game Question by another reviewer, "Would I buy a CE when the extras are hidden until the game is purchased?" Answer: Yes I would in a New York minute! I don't purchase a CE for the extras or the collectibles, I purchase the game for the game. And this game is awesome! The story is awesome to where i have to see the rest of it. The VO's are superb (even the main character has a voice) and so is the actual game play. To me anyways, it makes me feel like I am playing in the game. I do want to suggest that you take the tutorial on the forensic kit. It did confuse me on what you had to do. But the guide does help and gets you through too. Graphics: Beautifully done. They really gave it the spooky feel and the ambiance. Music: It fit really well with the game. It added to the spookiness of the game. H0GS: Find one or two objects to use on items in the scene, list of words with green words for extra steps and silhouettes. That was what I played in the demo. Mini Games: A chess one to turn on all the lights to unlock a lock, a lock pick one, a story one where you had to find the objects in the scene to continue with the story, just a nice variety and not taxing, just fun. Map: Gave the exclamation point to indicate there is something to do there. Another indication of where you are, and of course a jump map. To me this is above a five star game. Kudos to the developers for making such fantastic game. I would highly recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noir Chronicles :City of Crime Excellent interesting crime detective game. Nice to play a game that is more realistic rather than fantasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Enjoyed this Game! Because I was completely enamored by the game I awarded a 5 Star Rating. Both the main game and the bonus game provided a very good story. The difficulty of the game was about right. The challenges one might encounter did not distract from the game players ability to stay focused on the story being told and acted out. I played this game twice already and will be in my game list of must play again. I am anxiously waiting for another game to appear in the series. Please consider NOT introducing a game to the series that contains mythical creatures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~~~THEY'RE COMING FOR YOU BARBARA!!!~~~ It’s quite the rush to find the culprit and solve the mystery, but the game as a whole needs to keep you invested from start to finish, as well as feature a nice cast of character in order to make the whole thing feel believable and engaging. Noir Chronicles: City of Crime is a gritty adventure game with puzzle and hidden object elements, in which you play the role of a detective named Gingertail. The game features the usual gameplay mechanics found in casual HOPAs, so you shouldn’t go in looking for original concepts or anything of the sort. However, at least the riddles can be pretty challenging every now and again. The whole thing starts when Gingertail (Fox) is called to the house of his ex-girlfriend Barbara, where he finds out that she has been murdered. You must conduct the investigation and find the clues to lead you to the culprit, as well as make sure that the detective doesn’t take his revenge too far in the process. The story is not groundbreaking material, but there are enough engaging scenes to make you forget about it. The gameplay formula is as classic as it can get if you are a veteran of the genre, which means that all you have to do is examine every scene carefully and pick up items. These items can then be used to open the way to the next scene, as well as solve the occasional puzzles. Speaking of which, there are all sorts of mini-games when it comes to the puzzles, each one of which requires either coordination or a bit of critical thinking. I could do without the mini-games where you punch the opponent. I just think that's a little juvenile for a mystery adventure. Lastly, the graphics are the same pre-rendered scenes with hand-drawn artwork on top, but they look gorgeous most of the time, and the artists were free to add as much detail as they wanted without impacting the performance. In addition, there’s excellent voice acting for dialog scenes, as well as carefully-chosen sound effects to go along with the action on the screen. Brave Giant may really have a great new series in the works and I'd like to see more games in this series. Hopefully you will too. Cheers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique Characters I played as Alfred Fox. There are mostly Brit accents and they yell a lot. The hops are plentiful but are cluttered and not lovely. There is garbage in the game that grossed me out. I noticed you would have nothing in your toolbox and would have to go to the next scene to hunt things up, this made it fast paced because you were searching. I didn't like the fight puzzles. The BG money was cool, it reminded me of monopoly money. I liked some mini-games. I did like the rest of the game. Try it for yourself.

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 BARBARA CERTAINLY ISN'T A ONE MAN KINDA GAL I finally got the chance to finish this latest game by Brave Giant today. There are only 4 main Chapters and a Bonus Chapter in the Collector's Edition version, but the chapters themselves are fairly long. I liked the fact that there were a few twists to the plot, but I do agree with one of the other reviewers, that the ending could have been much more climatic. After investigating Barbara's murder, the CE Bonus Chapter takes you back 5 years prior to Barbara's murder investigation, which involves Alfred Fox, his brothers, and his adoptive father. Detective Fox once again has to prove his innocence, and you'll learn how Fox met a character or two from the main storyline. There are a couple of features that disappointed me, I missed 3 collectibles, not because I couldn't find them, because they are easily spotted, but because I just forgot to look for them. There is no opportunity to go back and find them, once you leave a scene, you can't go back, and you don't revisit any of those scenes either. There are no collectibles within the Bonus Chapter either, there are no options within the collectible icon either, if you miss finding a collectible, it's impossible to complete the collections, other than restarting the game from the beginning! It's the same scenario with the Achievements, especially given the fact that one of the Achievements is to find all collectibles! The last complaint I have, deals with typo's, or should I say TPYS'o? Brave Giant boasts about having games available in 10 different languages, which is fantastic, but at least have someone that speaks that particular language, check it for spelling mistakes before releasing it! (the spoon is to think? We'll have to crowl?) Other than these flaws, this is a really good detective game, with some very interesting puzzles to solve from beginning to end. I especially enjoyed the Griddler variation puzzle, and the puzzle where you had to swap tiles that were similar (color, type etc) until it matched the clue shown. BG had originally created this game with animal characters instead of people, but I think it still would've worked, and I'd actually like to play that version! Here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either, is right for you: Detective Fox, aka Detective Gingertail, receives a frantic call in the middle of the night, from his ex-girlfriend Barbara. The detective arrives a little too late to save her, but a little too early for the perp. to escape, at least unharmed. Barbara is just a gossip columnist journalist, who would want to harm her, or more importantly, why? BraveGiant Studios might be onto something with this new addition,whodunit series. I'm a little curious as to why they apparently changed the characters from originally being animals in the beta, to humans, I kinda like that scenario. After all Tiny Tales by BG was very successful. I love the collectibles available in the Collector's Edition version, footprints, handprints, shoeprints and a single fingerprint! They really fit in with the storyline genre, and they blend in well enough to make it somewhat challenging. There is an eyeball icon located on the top left of the inventory bar, that remains open until you locate the print in each scene. (note: don't leave a scene until you find the collectible, there's no way of returning) The graphics are very well done, the voice overs are decent, but the character movements are jilted and awkward. There are some logic fails from time to time, but overall, I like where this game is heading, but then again, I've always been a fan of a good detective mystery. The HOP's are actually pretty good, and I don't often say this because lately they are nothing more than objects scattered around a junkpile, a true hoarders delight, but nothings really hidden. There are Interactive List finds, Silhouetted Shape finds, and Multiples of similar Item finds. Some of the HOP's have small Mini Games or Puzzles to solve, and there is usually at least one object that Morph's between the actual object on the list and something entirely different. In the CE, there is an optional Monaco Card Game to play instead of the HOP, a matching card game that requires you to make matches of identical cards that are next to each other in a row, column or diagonally. When you make matches of cards with a special frame, the meter bar fills, once full, you can use the bonuses or shuffle features available. The Mini Games range from super easy to medium difficulty, but nothing seems too difficult or too frustrating to temp you to use the skip feature. I actually found the mini games to become more entertaining after the demo! Here's a list of brief descriptions on the mini games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Use directional arrows to lead the tokens through the maze, all 3 tokens will move at the same time. 2) Select the watch pins in the correct order by trial and error. 3) Rotate each dial to the correct numbers according to the clue shown. 4) Find 3 hidden symbols on each photo to hear a story. 5) Repeat the sequence of punches by clicking on the left and right hand icons, repeat the sequence 3 times correctly to win. 6) Choose the correct answers on a lie detector, as conversation choices. 7) Rotate and place torn paper fragments into the highlighted slots. 8) Select and place the correct numbered buttons into the slots on the right to complete the equations that will equal the numbers on the clue. (fun game, but could have been more fun if a tad bit harder) The Collector's Edition has 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 8 re-playable Movie Cutscenes, 8 re-playable Mini Games, 8 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, (some HOP's have a Morphing Object) 20 Achievements to earn, 33 Collectible Prints (11 footprints, 13 handprints, 8 shoeprints, 1 fingerprints) and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!  BRAVE GIANT GAMES AVAILABLE Noir Chronicles*Ghost Files*Queen's Quest*Hidden Investigations*Tiny Tales*Stories of Forgotten Past*Demon Hunter*Agent Walker*Tibetan Quest

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't Wait for the Next One This is posted after playing the entire game. What a wonderful game. I've been waiting for something like this forever and it has arrived. This is the most enjoyable game I've played in a long time. Graphics were well done. I loved the realistic style. It looked as though they used a cut out for the background and then put the characters in, but it worked and worked well. Only difficulty I experienced in the game was with the voice overs. They were excellent with a mixture of British and American accents, but they would cut off before the end of what they were saying. Not all the time, but enough to notice it wasn't part of the game. You need to be a speed reader to catch everything in the boxes. I like to look around the scene before reading, but not in this game. You read them and then look around if you wish. I loved the music. It added so much to the game I became addicted to it. I even turned it up while playing. This was my kind of challenge in a game. There really wasn't anything we haven't seen before, but I was able to do the mini games so apparently there was something changed. There were some repeats like untangling the rope. I hate that one and after a feeble attempt I just skipped it. I recalled three of these during the game. The hidden objects were varied from a list to interactive to silhouettes and everything in-between. There were a lot of hidden objects and I loved that. The map was excellent. It showed where there were things to be done and transported. I'll give one suggestion. Before you leave a scene, be sure you check the map and make sure you have done everything. I didn't and there were a couple scenes, that when I was checking the map for something,, I noticed I had missed an object. Once you leave there is no going back. Obviously it wasn't anything major, but the indicator was still showing something to do. Others will go into depth about the story so I won't bore you with my version. Oh that story. Not only was there a male as the hero for a change, but it caught me from the very beginning and held my attention all the way to the end. The ending surprised me to say the least. I don't think I've ever seen a game end like that. AWESOME!! I just cannot say enough about this game. No ghosts, goblins, witches or other things that go bump in the night. A wonderful breath of fresh air. We need more like this. Give the demo a try and see if it isn't to your liking. If you like tough puzzles, you probably won't care for it, but for me it was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Who Will Knock Fox Out Next? Detective Gingertail Fox is called to help out an old girlfriend. She is being murdered but the bad guy gives her time to make a phone call! This is all a mild send-up of old Film Noir mysteries. We will help Fox find Barbara's killer, eventually, if he stops getting knocked out! Good stuff: I really liked the artwork - most of it seemed really well done. The characters were a bit over the top and their dialogue a bit cheesy - as in the old films. There were a variety of HOPs and puzzles. Bad stuff: Logic flaws abound - the drill you put together uses the DRILL BIT to UNSCREW a grate. You see silhouettes passing windows of a SLIM figure in a hoodie and never check to see who it is - and then the BIG hulking bad guy shows up to knock you out again. There are, of course, more flaws, but not as egregious as a lot of recent games! Also I could have easily done without the fight puzzles. But there is lots to do and the story is a mystery. And since there is no actual necessity for an SG, the game is a better value in an SE and got an extra star for that fact. All and all an OK effort, but not a barnburner! Give the Demo a try and see if you want to be a rough and tough detective!
