Do you think this could ever have been a good game?

After painstakingly researching this game, I think it started out pretty well, bringing Clint on board, getting a few Hollywood voice actors and what not.
But around the point that they practically announced it as a sandbox game is when things started to look dismal.
That and the fact that you always had to wait about a year to hear anything from it...

I haven't looked into it, but if it was set up the way I envision LA Noir to be like (don't know much about that game either :P), then I think it could have been...okay...

It depends on how they do it. If they make it a first person shooter where you can only use your revolver, but the ammo amount is never shown so you have to count your shots and determine whether you fired 5 shots or 6, then yes, I'd be very psyched.

It could have been awesome.  I just found out it was canceled.  Sad day.

Hard call. There's the generational gap to consider. How many people  watched and enjoyed Dirty Harry movies? How many of the same people also enjoy video games?   I'm not saying it's impossible,  but the odds are stacked against such a game making money off the mainstream audience.

Personally,  I'm all for it.... but I fit the description above..
