When the remaster of L.A. Noire that came to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in November was first revealed, a shorter VR version was also announced. However, it was delayed shortly before release and came to HTC Vive in December. In The VR Case Files, you jump into the shoes of Cole Phelps and tackle select cases from the various police departments of the main game.
An important part of the original release was the facial animation technology that conveys small tells on the NPCs’ faces when you were interviewing them. Being so immersed in the action, that system works even better in VR, and the interactions feel far more intense. It also offers more variety than most other VR titles, allowing you to explore, drive around LA, and solve tricky puzzles. The Case Files VR makes you feel like a detective and that’s all you want from L.A. Noire.
