Left 4 Dead (Game of the Year Edition) Review
By Michael Richter |
If there's a downside, it's that the game is more of a guided experience or interactive story than it is a game. You'll have zero control over moving characters around. The conversations and evidence areas you go to are set and just play out, your part comes in when you need to choose the order of topics and deciding whether people are lying or not or whatever. While this is sort of a bummer on the gameplay side, it does allow for a better narrative since the story moves along at the proper pace.
I've always been a big fan of the Telltale Games style, and really wanted to believe that their missteps with the Jurassic Park game were just a fluke. Law & Order: Legacies goes a long way to putting my mind at ease. It's a well produced narrative filled with interesting dialogue options that really makes you feel like you're investigating.
