In the opening scene, where you arrive at the studio, take your own picture, and fill out a contestant form, one 3D puzzle is given, where a plant with multicolored leaves must be twisted to find a particular viewpoint where a number can be seen. Shortly thereafter, a set of 12 puzzles is given to you in a Jeopardy format. Solve puzzles until 80 points is scored, with bonuses for not using hints. The Hint system is excellent, much like the Layton series. After the game show, host takes you out for a drink, but an FBI agent comes to ask for help with puzzles found at a murder scene. Then there is more back and forth -- gameshow puzzles, crime scene puzzles. These are good puzzles, and excellently presented. Puzzle creators include the best in the world: Oscar van Deventer, Andrea Gilbert (clickmazes, ...Read more ›
Graphics (score 6/10): These graphics are...rather poor. They use live-action character models, just like another game on the DS called "Again," but somehow these look grainier and poorer than the ones in that game, despite this being a more advanced system. The 3D effect during cutscenes wasn't too bad, but I still don't care about it, especially since it seems to worsen the effect of the graininess. On top of that, character's mouth movements don't match their voice overs, so rather crap all around. I honestly wish they'd just gone with animated characters instead – it might have turned out nicer.
Music (score 6/10): The voice acting is alright – I've heard better, but I've also heard considerably worse. Music is rather bland, but not terribly bad. I will say, though, that you'll probably get sick of hearing the same repeated tunes over and over again, especially the game show theme song.
Characters (score 6/10): Ugh, this game utilizes the "insert yourself into the story thing" - which I never cared for. On top of that, it's pointless, as they just as easily could have written a proper character for the part and it would have changed nothing.Read more ›
If you enjoy DS/3DS games like the Professor Layton series, the Ace Attorney series, 999/Virtue's Last Reward, Trace Memory, Broken Sword, Ghost Trick, Time Hollow, Hotel Dusk/Last Window, etc........then do not think that this game will be even remotely in the same league. If you haven't played one of the aforementioned games, do yourself a favor and use the money you were about to spend on this game and go for one of those.

I really liked this game. The story is thin as all get out, but it sort of works in an old school FMV point and click game kind of way. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Nicholas A Hilton
Hollywood crimes are simple puzzle games held together by an interesting story. Nothing is super run-out-and-grab-you about any of it. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Amazon Customer
James Noir's Hollywood Crimes is definitely not your run of the mill adventure game. It plays more like an interactive movie, than an adventure game title. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Joe
