It’s time to relive the grim detective stories of L.A. Noire once more, with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files out today for PlayStation VR.
The VR Case Files takes seven of the cases from the full game’s set of 26, and adapts them to be suitable for playing VR, right down to first person interrogations and pencil jabbing.
We reviewed the game’s VR adaptation back when it arrived on PC-based VR systems in late 2017, but it’s going to be fascinating to see how the game has been brought to PlayStation VR when Dave was adamant that it really utilised Room Scale VR of the HTC Vive. You have nowhere near the same amount of freedom with PSVR.
He wrote, “Space will likely be the issue that prevents users from experiencing L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, but while it isn’t a perfectly controlled VR experience, it’s impressive that we’re seeing a VR game that utilises Room Scale VR in ways that make sense. To actually be part of this crime drama, investigating crime scenes and apprehending criminals, was more enjoyable in VR. Here’s hoping the next time we see something like this, it’s a dedicated experience.
