    Solid story, now with PS4-enhanced visuals

    |
    Posted .

    This game was originally released on the PS3, and when you consider its age- the visual presentation in this game was insanely ahead of its time. The main character and some of the featured characters you run across are from TV shows you’ve likely seen. The motion capture of their faces was revolutionary for a video game. As a PS4 release, it shows its age when compared with games like GTA 5 and Horizon Dawn— but it’s still visually solid when compared with 90% of the PS4 library you’ve likely played. The game’s real appeal, though, is its story. A twisting whodunit that involves murders, sex, drugs, and mystery. All of it takes place in a fully-realized 1940’s Los Angeles, with real landmarks and locations like you’d expect from a Rockstar Studios open-world game. At the end, you’ll likely be left satisfied, wanting more. 5 years after playing the original PS3 release, round 2 on the PS4 was just as fun, and the story was equally entertaining.

    If you're a fan of noire genres being books like Raymond Chandler or films like "L.A. Confidential" than having the opportunity to play this in a video game will yield an externalizing combination of the noire genre and fiction. The characters are there, the fame fatale and the corrupt characters/environment interlaces the setting of the early 40's and 50's of Los Angeles.

    An updated version of an underrated game

    Out of all the successful Rockstar games, this one flew under the radar most. Having a remastered version like this was great to see. It was a lot of fun re-experiencing the game. If you're new to the title overall, expect a good experience. It isn't GTA V level of storytelling, but it is the next best thing, in my opinion.

    More of a great experience than a great game

    I played LA Noire on the Xbox 360 when it was released several years ago and ended up with the season pass, too, so I have played all this before and still bought it. I mainly picked the game up because it was on sale for $15 and I thought it would be nice to have the game all in one place on one disc with all the DLC. It is an experience I will be happy to relive again. I think the developers did a really good job with the look and feel of the period and the city. Very cool to see Los Angeles before it really began to explode in growth after the war. Most of the cases were interesting, too, but it is a bit of a shame there weren't more murder cases and sometimes the interrogations don't quite follow logic and sometimes can come down to reading faces more than a combination of clues, answers, and reactions.

    It’s the classic Rockstar set-up, an open-world setting encased in an evocative era – or so it first seemed. Gamers originally expected the developer to follow a format similar to GTA, but what sets LA. Noire apart from other games is what it isn’t. It isn’t a game with indistinguishable mission structures, a tongue-in-cheek adoration of sex and violence, and a free-roaming structure that limits while it expands. It isn’t GTA, basically, and that is a good thing.

    Purely Amazing

    I fell in love with Noire years and years with cult classics Devil in Blue Dress and LA Confidential. When I originally saw the tech demo for this back in the the 2010s I was mesmerized by how cutting edge it was back then and preordered it as soon as I could. I had a few reservations about gameplay but overall love this game for its visuals and story. So obviously when a updated port came out I had to make should I picked up a copy the day it dropped and i'm glad I did. Gameplay feels fresh, DLC is included, and known bugs / gameplay shortcomings were addressed. I'm in love again.

    This is one of my favorite games from the PS3 and it looks even better on the PS4 Pro! The remastered edition looks great the graphics are crisp and the colors are vibrant. There are more detailed textures in many of the graphics, which makes for an even better playing experience. Some of the best voice work I have heard in a game and a great storyline! Highly recommend this game!

    Well worth a first time play-through

    I purchased the remastered LA Noir because, like so many others, I didn't get a chance to play it on the prior console generation. Although I have not beaten it yet I can say with confidence it has been well worth the price for a first time play-through; I have enjoyed it immensely. However, if you owned it for the prior gen I dont think I would recommend it. The remaster still looks like a prior gen game for the most part, with some aspects looking highly polished while others look untouched; in my opinion it has not been changed enough to justify a repurchase.

    Great Idea Let Down by Old Tech

    As a lover of mystery and old-school adventure games I knew I needed to try LA Noire, but couldn't get into it. The world is extremely realistic and the attention to period detail like vintage cars, music, clothes is really remarkable. But the gameplay and especially the characters fell short for me. Coming to this in 2019 for the first time, I found the 2010-era motion capture and character models were not convincing enough to carry a story like this. When interrogations depend on interpreting people's facial expressions, those faces have to hold up and be believable, and these just aren't quite. I know it's a last-gen game, but the odd faces and animations caused me to have a lot of trouble solving cases. The conversation system, as well, is frustrating and opaque despite some corrections from the original version. It's just not clear what your character is going to say based on the generic "good cop / bad cop" prompts you're given to choose from. Getting something wrong can fail the whole case, in which case you have to start over through UNSKIPPABLE versions of everything you've just sat through. That's not a product of LA Noire being an older game, it's just poor design. Other games of this genre from the period, like Heavy Rain or Telltale's The Walking Dead, had much more natural conversation systems that don't shut the player off from the character they're playing as. I recommend either of those games over this.

    Rarely does Rockstar stray away from producing a blockbuster game. LA Noire is such a departuree from the run and gun outlaws and criminally induced bank robbing caricatures of modern men. LA Noire is like a Soap Opera based in the 50s that you control. It allow us you to develop a story from your cast of characters that is somewhat linear, but interesting. It works for the time. LA Noir is a last gen title, and fon't expect the level of detail in story or gameplay as GTAV or Red Dead 2. If you are a fan of Noire Detective stories, this can feel a little campy. And the open world is a little scattered compared to more modern games. If you didn't play the original, give this one a little time to sink in. It is a fun time.

    For the detective in all of us (or not)

    LA Noire has been "remastered" for the current gen consoles. This title comes packed with all available DLC and provides a great amount of fun. The narrative is a simple story woven together by cases across different police departments while you navigate LA decades ago. For the most part navigating the city is one of the highlights of the game as well as voice acting.

    This was already an amazing game on the previous generation consoles and the updated graphics plus the complete DLCs make this even better, especially if you’re someone like me who never purchased the DLCs on the original. Definitely pick this up if you’re craving to play this game again and don’t have your previous consoles.

    A Fun Detective Style Game

    I played the original back on PS3 and enjoyed it for what it was. It was a refreshing experience from your typical Rockstar game and I recommend giving it a shot. The facial animations were great for it's time and was put to good use discovering if someone was lying to you or not. Just don't go into this game expecting any GTA experience and you will have a good time.

    A trip to the past

    Bought it before on the playstation 3 when it first came out. I was amazed by how Rockstar games was able to create a storyline where the player is now on the side of the law and not the other way around. The ps4 version looks just as good as a new ps4 title would. Game play is fluid, smooth, and fun. Would recommend to past players and also to new players who want a change from games like Grand theft auto.

    Love rockstar... love this game. It’s not quite red dead or GTA.. but I played this game when it first came out on Xbox 360... loved it then and thought I’d pick it up now to replay it and it’s even better! Granted... it looks like a last gen game, but the gameplay is still unparalleled.
