Doesn't 3D kinda ruin the whole "Noire" aspect?

LoL...I would have assumed those things, but given that they felt it necessary to state something so obvious, does this mean you cannot change the mouse mapping?

I agree; I also purchased it for the Xbox360 and it's a good game, but not as much as they hyped it up to be.

The game is too repetitive:
1) Drive to crime scene
2) Ask questions
4) Search for clues
5) Get into either small fist fight or small gun shoot out
6) Interrogate some more or just go straight onto solving case

It's like this for every single case and there are 26 cases. Good game, but not as good as Grand Theft Auto.

Rockstar needs to take the wonderful city they built and make it into a GTA game. Why would you want to be a cop when you can be a murderous gangster who kills his way to the top?

Game was boring and was obvious from the time I saw it being announced.
