Roy Earle (L.A. Noire)
Roy Earle is a character that appeared in the 2011 video game, L.A. Noire. He was a corrupt Chief Detective of the Vice department. He is Cole Phelps' partner during his time at the Vice desk.
Why He Sucks
- As being a Vice detective, he has no purpose whatsoever. He is a very corrupted cop.
- He smokes cigarettes heavily and also drinks occasionally.
- He is very careless to Cole Phelps' partners during shootouts, a lot, enough said.
- He stole $1,000 dollars (which was actually evidence) after claiming "the department owed him fifty," when the department only owed him $20. He should have to gone to jail for that!
- He'll mock Cole Phelps for not taking cover.
- The Los Angeles Police Department didn't even bother firing him for personal reasons.
- He possibly hates doctors (except Dr. Harlan Fontaine), and blames them for drug and vice problems. What!?!
- He tried to order Cole Phelps to stay away from Elysian Fields, but failed.
- Heck, even Cole Phelps, and most major characters really dislike him.
- He’s very racist. For example, he calls Elsa Litchman a “German junkie whore”. He is also quite rude to black people.
- When he and Phelps found Sheldon’s corpse, he crudely called Sheldon a “victim of his own product”. Criminal or not, he’s still a human and death is not something that should be laughed at or made fun of.
- He snitched on Cole about his affair to get Cole and keep the media from knowing the truth about who was shipping in military issued morphine.
- He gave a speech to Cole Phelps's death in the church at the end of the game.
- His red 1947 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible, looks really nice.
- Adam John Harrington did a good job voicing him, despite the characters corrupted tone.
The character has received negative reviews by critics and fans, and is widely considered to be the worst character in the entire L.A. Noire game.
