    "This is a dark mystery / detective / supernatural game that can be great fun....for a while. It didn't hold my interest because the storyline is weak and often non-existent. I find it fun if I'm in the mood for an arcade type game and wanting to annihilate zombies."

    "If there is something I love is a game that involves shooting and this Max Payne is one of the best games because when I played it,I was thrilled by this Max Payne who was framed for murder and the fact that he has nothing to lose makes it more enjoyable because there is so much action.The cops chasing him makes it interesting."

    "If you're looking for a game with the mystery and atmosphere of the noir genre, then Gemini Rue will be right up your alley. This game is oozing with style, and the gameplay is just as solid. The developer, Wadjet Eye Games, has a reputation for great indie games, including The Shivah and the Blackwell series, both of which would also appeal to noir enthusiasts. "

    "Though a favorite for many, Grim Fandango is not my favorite noir game on Steam. It's a classic for sure, but the Land of the Dead lacks detail and some of the puzzles can be strange. Execution not the idea is what doesn't work for me many times in Fandango."

    "The animation and graphics in this game are amazing. It really adds to the games. It's definitely a darker game, so it works well as a noir game. "

    "This game is both dark and gritty. I love that I am able to explore the dark side of the Arkham Knight. Tell-tale games are always entertaining and this may be the best series yet. When I played through the game I made it a point to always take the path of violence. Trust me, it was worth it. "

    Gunpoint is a stealth-based puzzle-platform video game that set in the near future and sees players assume the role of freelance spy Richard Conway, who is tasked with infiltrating buildings to fulfil assignments from various clients.

    "You cannot make a good parody without having a deep love and understanding of the subject matter. Gunpoint does not make fun of the Noir genre. It makes fun, in a Noir setting. The aesthetics are on point, the story funny and short, but remarkably complete and the gameplay just works really well. It is the perfect combination of a parody and a tribute and absolutely worth every penny. ...Did I mention you can build your own levels as well?"
