Face Noir (PC) | FTG Review

FTG Writes: Face “No, Really?”

Ever meet someone you initially find attractive, but then they start talking and it all goes to hell? That was the experience of playing Mad Orange’s Face Noir. The game is a point-and-click adventure, a genre that’s recently been re-invigorated, and from the onset it looked so retro-pretty. Face Noir loads up, and the first thing you notice is – wow – the voice acting is bad…really bad. I’ve heard better acting in porn. Face Noir‘s voice work doesn’t get any better either; every new character that gets introduced is as bad or worse than the previous. Through playing, you find out that the main character is a recent immigrant to America from Italy, and yet he speaks perfectly “infomercial,” with the exception of saying “dammit” in Italian all the time. The bi-lingual cursing is so jarring that it creates a barrier between the player and the character. (Face Noir, PC) 3.5/10
