Face Noir is a game I can easily recommend. It executes well on every level (save the voice acting), and offers great puzzles, enjoyable characters, fabulous art design, and a fun (if pulpy) noir plotline. If you're interested in the Depression-era setting and enjoy a solid point-and-click adventure, you should absolutely check this one out.

About twelve hours long, Face Noir is one of the best point and click adventure you can find at the moment. The story is very good, with an interesting plot twist just at the end, the gameplay is linear but good, with logical puzzles and nice dialogue lines. The inventory has been improved, now you can choose both the 3D inventory or a "classic" one. Give it a try, it could be a suprise.

When I first saw this game it did remind me of L.A. noir, and it does play the same. The mysteries in this game are hard to solve, sometimes they're really strange. The graphics are done well, sometimes it does load slow, but that's alright. The atmosphere of this game is done really well. The game plays in the 1930s. The puzzles are done well. Worth getting on full price if you like those games.
