Rockstar Changed Truth/Doubt/Lie For The L.A. Noire Remaster

One of the most bizarre quirks in the detective game L.A. Noire was that choosing the “doubt” option—out of “truth/doubt/lie”—would transform protagonist Cole Phelps into a raging psychopath. For the remastered version, publisher Rockstar has changed those options entirely.


As evidenced in a new trailer for the Switch version of L.A. Noire, which comes out on November 14 alongside the PS4 and Xbox One versions, your options during interrogation are now Good Cop, Bad Cop, and Accuse.

Rockstar confirmed to Kotaku that this change will apply to all three versions of L.A. Noire. “The change was made so that the options more accurately reflect Phelps’ behavior when a player selects each choice,” said a company spokersperson.

I feel like those still are not accurate descriptors of the choices. You’re supposed to use Truth when the witness is being honest with you, Doubt when the witness is lying but you don’t have proof, and Lie when the witness is lying and you do have proof. Why can’t they make that clear?
