As usual, the Nintendo Switch version of a third party party proves more enjoyable in portable mode than when the console is docked. L.A. Noire indeed looks very similar to the old gen versions of the game when played on a TV, with visible aliasing and some framerate issues. When using the Switch as a handheld though, the game looks pretty good and seems to run a lot better from what we've seen. Although it is clear that Team Bondi's game was not without flaws, we can still recommend it to those who haven't played it and who will favor the handheld configuration to the docked one.

L.A. Noire is a very good game, well worth the time it takes to finish it. It's nice to read that the game works fine in handheld mode. As for the Switch, like many press people say, it's mostly regarded as a handheld device - like a sucessor to the 3DS.

While I don't regard it as that for Nintendo's games, I definitely do for most other third party games like Skyrim, Doom, FIFA, etc. Where the Switch version only makes sense if you plan on using it in handheld mode. If you want a full screen TV experience with them, PC, PS4 and XB1 are the much better versions.

Btw, unrelated to L.A. Noire, even though it was released a few months back, do you guys plan on covering the Switch version of Rayman Legends Definitive Edition? That seems to be a great game that is perfect for the Switch.

I'm an all console gamer but I never felt the urge to buy a switch even after that so called masterpiece zelda. (Not a fan of zelda also)
