Recenze

“It is a genuinely entertaining adventure for fans of private eye mysteries, and a solid debut for a promising developer...”
3.5/5 – Adventure Gamers

“Face Noir does an excellent job at immersing you in the game world. There are interactive close up scenes which let you feel more involved in the action … the detailed backgrounds are lovely. The grimness of each scene helps you feel like you are there, and the soundtrack is worthy of any noir film.”
Jay Is Games

“Face Noir is able to deliver on several fronts. Mad Orange was dedicated in providing an unique story while continually driving plot twists to further intrigue the player. Also in their effort they illustrated beautiful scenery to allow an appreciating experience while investigating objects”
7.5/10 – Capsule Computers

It's a good adventure game. Maybe not one of the best ever made, but certainly one to recommend.
They did get the whole noir ambiance in there nicely. And the story's okay.

This game is epic. Dark places, suitable music, black humor. Perfect atmosphere of a crime novel. The puzzles are logical and not too hard. The story and characters are easy to follow and remember. 14 hours of entertainment. One thing that I must say is that you cannot chose screen resolution, but the game upscale good.

Damntzione. This game has the most shades of brown. Between average to a solid point and click adventure game. Gameplay is not bad. The down side is the lip sync. Mad Orange has done a great job. Fans of adventure games would find this interesting. The price for this game should be lower by now (since the original release date). Maybe $10.? Overall... 8/10.

'Dannazione!' -Jack, Face Noir

(Prepare to hear that alot in this game. It's so fun to hear the main character become frustrated while lock-picking or messing with the thermostat!)


The game is a fun point-and-click game wich is not that hard, it's a bit tricky at times but most of it is logical. The graphics are great and the sound sets the mood for the game.

I can certainly recommend it, ask me if you have any questions

If you like noir and point & click games you will absolutely love this game like I do. The game's atmosphere and the story is very good. The only thing I don't like about this game is voice acting. Definitely worth the money and the time.

I love me some detective games, and this one is... well, worth buying for very, very, very cheap on a Steam sale.
If you're as big a fan of detective games as I am, then maybe I added an extra "very" or two, just now.

CONS:

1) Voice acting: The voice acting is really bad. Sometimes the quality is, well... ugh. Enough said.

2) Animation: The animation is sub-par, today. I mostly speak of the mouth movements. Everything else is quite par.

3) Lockpicking: You can skip doing it altogether.

4) Issues: Now, this is an interesting con. I would have broken this one down into more than one part, but, the single word "issues" really sums it all up neatly. For instance, near the beginning of the game, it seemed quite impossible to be able to find a light switch in a blackened room, which prompted me to get frustrated and stop playing for months. And then, when I finally mustered up the jimmies (yes) to play it again, and use a walkthrough to figure out where the hell it was, I still couldn't find it with my cursor for quite some time.

Another instance was when trying to get around some NPCs to investigate; finnicky business, that, at times, but not awful. Just.... finnicky. You really have to play the game to know what I mean by just saying "Issues". It's definitely not (it can't be) a big-budget game, by any means, though it does have it charms, and humour enough to keep me interested.


PROS:

1) Humour: The game has a good sense of humour, of which I won't spoil, because there's some fun quirkiness that you need to play into to appreciate.

2) Interactivity: The game is very interactive, for a point and click, and doesn't hold your hand too much with what you're doing. Though, as I said, Lockpicking was just... yes.

3) Story: The narrative is actually kind of interesting, once you... well, wrap your mind around it. Don't take this the wrong way; it's not complicated. It's just... a series of things happening, to the point of me not really remembering what sparked the narrative in the first place. But to be fair, I got frustrated and put this on hold for a few months. Maybe you would fare better..? All I remember is that I'm now framed for something I have to prove I didn't do, at this point. That's all I'll say, detail wise. That small tinge of con aside, it's amusing and not too shabby at keeping you engaged, so I take this as a positive thing.

4) Puzzles: The puzzle solving and clue finding is just what it should be; involved. You really need to think hard, search around, and try every angle you can to get the solutions your looking for. Some are easier than others, but none are 100% obvious.


FINAL THOUGHTS:

If you like detective games, point and click, and something that feels a little rough around the edges, this is the game for you. As long as you don't mind the awkward and sometimes questionable quality of the voice acting...

If you are looking for something to keep you on your toes, immersed, and delving into the shady underbelly of society, well... not so much.

Do I recommend?
Sure, why not.

But only if it's very, very, very cheap.
(Did I add one too many again?)

I really like this game. Post depression New York with noir theme is quite unique. Main hero is private detective with drinking problem. His main goal is to survive in city where everyone is corrupted. Overall the atmosphere is immersive. First couple of hours I had fun solving puzzles, interrogating people and exploring environments. Plot was nice and it makes sense.

But then it started to get ridiculous. Introducing of paranormal events killed it for me. Last third of the game was boring, the same over and over again. There is even no real ending in the game. Apparently Face Noir II is coming, but I have no intention to play the sequel.

Face Noir is an adventure that promises much and gets nothing. The development is slow, very slow, the story is boring and does not begin to engage or get interesting until about halfway through the game. The first part of the game will be running around doing silly things and visiting the port often.

Too strict and lineal, you can only pick up and use things when he tells you "you have to do" ... even knowing what you have to do next... that´s the principal issue that breaks the enjoyment of the game. It had potential and eventually nothing at all.

And when the story seems to make sense and find the plot, the game ends with a "to be continued". Anyway, the music is good.

Trust me. I played a lot of adventures and this has been one of the most boring I've done.

The game is a quite good technical job: nice graphics, nice voice work, interesting story... It had everything to be perfect, but things were implemented just all wrong.
The "puzzles" are simply a matter of finding something well hidden in the scenario and, once you find it, you basically need to move your mouse in the right directions and there goes the "solution".
The path you have to take to follow up with the story is made way too explicit by the thoughts of the character. His monologues always tell you what to do next, as hints you didn't ask for.
But the worst is that this game just kills the basic principle of point-and-clicking: exploration. Most objects only become available for use when the character already realized that he needs it. So the first time you explore the ambient he will say something like "I don't need it" for almost everything you try to interact with, but then after some stupid event that makes the character think "Hey, I need a blablabla for accomplishing that" then suddenly the blablabla can be picked up(or turned on, closed, open, or any other interaction that was previously unavailable).
It's a big challenge killer, you never really get the opportunity to think things through. As soon as the problem is presented, the character's consciousness gets to the answer for it, inevitably preventing you to draw any conclusion by yourself. What keeps you playing is just the hope that at some point all that seemingly pretentious work will actually turn into something fun. But I guess this is just an illusion.

Nice old-school style point and click. If you like Noir and Detective stories then you can't go wrong. Puzzles can be a bit frustrating since it's easy to simply not notice the one tiny object that let's you solve it. But once you've found all the clickables then the puzzles usually make sense.

Two tips: double click when the arrow is red to jump to the next area without having to watch him walk. And Press F1 for highlights (or click the ? button in the inventory.)

Edit: It's a two part story... Don't expect full resolution ontil the sequel comes out.

Film Noir inspired Adventure Game.

Graphics are simple. Soundtrack is great, Voice Acting is good. The Interface is very primitive (tip: highlighting is F1). Writing is pretty good. Characters are ... interesting: lets just say that Characters are written to be "period appropriate". Puzzles aren't exactly self obvious (I guess that is a good thing) - and could be accused of "pixel hunt".

This one is for Adventure Game veterans and Film Noir fans... Me, otherwise avoid.

Awesome adventure.It's one of the best point and click adventures I've played since years. Logical puzzles and interesting setting. Based on america's great depression during the 30's. It 's worth it to give it a try ;) 8,5/10

A classic Point & Click adventure game, taking plqce in the 30s in New York.
You play what I would qualify as the archetype of the Private Ivestigator; long trench coat, drinking issues, a tendency for cynisim, ex cop who has been kick off the force... Nothing really new here... And that's actually a good think.
The game isn't particularilly beautiful, but the direction match the ambiance film noir wanted here. The story is suffisantly intriging to make you want to go forward, and the puzzles are not too challenging, without being too easy neither. It will take you around 9-10 hours to see the end.

And overall pretty enjoyable game for P&C fans who like film noir that I will recommend.
7/10.

Many years ago, this game may have been a bit more appealing. Voice acting and artwork are reasonable. The story is "not bad" like a midday movie that you don't bother turning off because it's not offensive. It offers an interesting "join the dots/clues" mechanic, but other than that, it's not what I'd call progress in Adventure Gaming.

Very entertaining all-around. Really bad voice acting, mediocre graphics, but a solid noir storyline and reasonable adventure/puzzle mechanics. If you like movies from the 1940s, this is a buy, otherwise you'd probably be better off with a Telltale game. Telltale games are awesome, just to clarify.

Face Noir is a old school point anc click game done right. The theme and scenario as you can guess is a Noir Detective placed in the New York from the 1930s. Decent lenght, nice story, lots of backgrounds the low points from this are the mainly for me the lip sinc animations that are uncanny awkward, and a personnal nitpick are some of the puzzles are too ''Myst'' like, rearrange puzzles that you have almost no clues for its complition.
Regardless these, I have to say that I enjoyed very much playing this game. The main protagonist is vey likeable and the whole plot work just fine.
Face Noir alongeside many other are prrof that point and click were never dead.

Beautiful point & click game. Very logical and enough hard to make you doubt. The ambiance is near perfection. Just missed the french translation and the streets felt a bit empty, but nevermind. Been 10-15 hours of happiness :)
