Law & Order Los Angeles: FTW or WTF?

posted by StrongBrush1 on - last edited - Viewed by 2.1K users
When I saw that Telltale had announced Law and Order, I was a bit worried about Telltale. These guys are going to work themselves into the ground if thay don't slow down soon. I'd rather have one or two good series a year than five back to back new and not-guaranteed-to-kick-off projects being announced every week or so.

Other than that, though, seriously, Telltale? Law and Order Los Angeles? I might understand a game based on the original show, but a spinoff that not a lot of people watch or care about? That's just going a little too far in my book.

I was never really a fan of the original show, but my parents watch it ALL THE FRICKIN' TIME! Looking at all these CSI-style shows they watch make me notice an odd pattern:
  • The Actors are either over the top or too subtle
  • Everything that happens is always either completely random or extremely predictable
  • All of the main characters could be interchanged with each other and nobody would notice the difference
  • and they talk WAY too quietly.
So, what do you think, guys?

Is Telltale getting in over their heads, going the right pace, or not doing things fast enough? And, as for the game, do you think it will be good, bad or just meh? Please explain.

  • I'm indifferent, for me it will be like the CSI games... I do not plan on playing it... but I wish TTG luck and success with it.. and I hope the people who like the show love the game..
  • I watched a few eps of L&O:LA and rather enjoyed it. I'm a bigger fan of CSI, but L&O:LA was pretty good, I thought.

    If we love the show will we only like the game?
  • I've never even seen Law & Order. Unless the game looks amazing I doubt I'll be getting it.
  • same. I have never seen Law and Order, so doubt I will get the game.
  • Even if it's going to look superlicious I doubt I'll ever try to get that game. Reasons are the same with why I'm not buying Crysis 2.

    Never watched Law and Order, never a fan of ANY "police dramas" so far; I just can't sympathize with any of the characters because I never wanted to be a cop I guess.

    These two quotes pretty much sum up my feelings on the subject. I don't hate that Telltale making this but there is an extremely slim change I am ever going to play it.
  • ANOTHER new game from you guys?? Are you kidding me? I really hope you're not going to dissapoint your fans by taking on so many new games at once....

    edit: i like law and order, i'm not a fan of the series, but the few episodes i watched were very cool.
  • When is it set to come out??
  • I still think its FTW and whens a trailer coming out or screenshot or anything! Come on TTG I wanna see something good. :p I been hoping for a TTG Law and Order game ever since I played Wallace and Gromit ep 2.
