- "Don't believe the hype"
Gameplay is very linear and all you will do is go from case to case and police calls in between the driving. Although there is shootings there is not much to them and car chases are kind of a let down due to weird feel of the cars. The car handling is like some had super glue on the tires making it easy at turning on full speed with a corner although this are 1940's car we are talking about here.
Apart from that you will be jumping from case to case interviewing , finding clues and trying to solve cases which does get repetitive.
I wish it was more of a feel to the same age of the cars back then, where i think mafia and mafia 2 got closer to than this game.
The story is very well written and the cases draw you in thanks to the face scanning technology and superb voice casting. But apart from the cases there is very little to do, and each choice seems to get you the same result which really questions whether you want to bother.
Okay let's get this straight. Graphics are not near where the should be. Few things are detailed like characters and cars or object that you find the clues. But as soon as you look around you will find a dull textured world. Not sure if the engine used has the problem as somethings load as you go and you can see them poping up infront of you. Even some of the ground textured look absolutely awful thinking "what the hell" as they done such an extraordinarily work with Red dead redemption.
Thanks to a great cast everything said sounds believable and well acted. Also the worlds has been nicely captured with gossips as you go by the police department.
Good but no where near great. I think gamespot overlooked alot of stuff when they gave out a 9. Apart from cases you have nothing else to do. If you are excepting a Red dead redemption where you have a house or roam freely , you won't get it in this game, although you can freely roam there is little to do from going to the case and just driving around.
