    Fun, Unique Game

    Posted .

    I wasn't completely sure what to think about the game before I purchased it, but after playing through it (twice), it is an extremely enjoyable game. One thing I would like to start off with: -Just because it is published by Rockstar does not mean it is a 1940s version of GTA. Outside of the movements and open world gameplay, it could not be further from GTA. There is not nearly as much action and probably appeals to a completely different crowd. You are an ex-Marine, named Cole Phelps, who works his way up through the LAPD. The main story is of the cases you solve and how you work your way up the ranks, but there are also several back stories that add to the game's overall storyline. There are a variety of cases to solve, ranging from murders, to drugs, to arson. The good majority of the game is not action based, but searching for clues, interviewing people, and driving around. Team Bondi does a good job of adding in some action with most of the cases though, whether it be chasing down a fleeing supsect or a gun fight. Interviewing suspects is not always easy, especially if you lack evidence for accusations. Reading the faces and actions of persons of interest can be more of a focus than what they actually say. Positives: -LA Noire has very good graphics. The new facial technology Team Bondi created and the several years of development definitely shows throughout the game. -The story is well thought out and very deep with its back-stories and numerous characters. -The length of the game is outstanding, especially since there is not a lot of replay-ability. It took me around 28 hours of gameplay to finish the story and probably half of the side missions. I have finished the game to 100% and played through the story and DLC roughly twice each and am up to 40+ hours. -It is a challenging game, never really too easy or too hard, which is good since there is not a difficulty adjustment. Negatives: -Not a lot of replay-ability. Once you play through the cases twice and figure everything out you may have missed the first time, there is not a lot to get you to keep playing. However, trying to get all of the trophies will help get the most out of the game as well as DLC that will continue to be released (at an extra cost though). -At times it can seem repetitive when looking for clues or interviewing, but as I said before, Team Bondi did a good job mixing in action at appropriate times. Overall this is one of the best games I have played in recent years. The positive aspects completely outweigh the negatives. It is another great game that is published by Rockstar, even though it is vastly different from what they are known for like GTA and RDR. There is a good mix of crime solving/interviewing and gun fights/action. The long and interesting story is well worth at least one play-through.

    Really Well Done

    The PS3 version has a lot less stuttering than the X360 version. Although the extra cases and suit is available for money for X360 and PS3 while it is included in the PC version. The PC version is far superior in that you can control any stuttering or graphics by well building your own system. Although with the PC version, you do lose out on Trophies and Achievements, plus the Rockstar Social Club requries Flash, yuck. Story should take you about 20 hours if you download the extra cases and play then with the main game. It's fun, well thought out, and the attention to detail is exquisite. Still neat to see the La Brea Tarpits and other LA landmarks from around the era. There is an overarching story while you solve your cases which keeps you interested as the game progresses, a little bit of twists keep you guessing. The voice acting is superb, the only drawback is that it takes a while to get use to shooting. If you expect this to be a gung-ho FPS style game, then don't buy it. If you are looking for a puzzle, crime based simulator, then yes definitely get it. You might find out who did really kill the Black Dahlia.

    Best Rockstar game yet!!!

    Posted .

    I have played all( and I mean all) of the GTA and RDR games...this is by far the best...not just becuase of the facial expressions...but because of the gameplay.people have been complaining that you do the same things over and over again...that's true. As a cop youtravel to the crime scene and look for clues to colve the case...it's makes you feel like you're doing the job of a cop. The graphics are top notch...way ahead of previous GTA and RDR where everything looked blurry and washed out. Lets not mention how all of LA is accurate and looks amazing.Don't listen to the prior reviews...esp from the guy that can't even spell correctly in his review let alone know what a good game is all about...this game is amazing and should not be missed

    I'm Impressed

    Posted .

    I started playing the game and I must say, I am very impressed. Many people are comparing the game to Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto. In my opinion the game is much more different. You do have free roam but it is not as fun as free roam in Red Dead or GTA. This game actually makes you think through each case and interview. The graphics are pretty good and the cases are full of detail. The game is worth the 60 dollars, trust me!

    Amazing game

    Posted .

    Games deserves 5/5 especially seeing how I have hated ALL Rockstar game other then Red Dead Redemption. Amazing graphics and facial engine is brilliant. Gameplay is also wonderful. It's Phoenix Wright in the 40s with action scenes. What's not to like?! Hoping this 5/5 helps make up that reviewer who gave a 4/5 without playing it... ~_~

    Find out where all the memes came from with the original game that started it all. Don’t DOUBT me. Buy it. Or probably get the remaster since this is old.

    Rockstar is finally all grown up

    Posted .

    It's been seeming that Rockstar games has ever been so lately trying to grow out of its mindless rage induced rampages you tend to find in of some of their older titles, but now has developed a more deeper and darkerside with this game dealing with more mature situations like currption and homicide. The main selling points of this game are the face visuals which I must say are absolutly stunning and the detective and interrogation sequences while keeping shooting to minimum. the game tries to come off looking like a sand box but instead makes it pretty linear like Mafia 2 did which is some what disappointing specially coming from like Rockstar which main purpose of every game is sand box but then again its to give you more of an immersion feeling, only thing to do besides cases is to sometimes go to street crime locations which tend to delay acctually you know doing the cases of your specific department like you don't have homicide deal with a jumper its impractical. though through all and all I applaude Rockstar for doing something instead of an new GTA game and losing the huggies and and putting on some big boy pants though this game will come and disappoint many under age 10 year old fans who overly hype about the GTA series and Red Dead series due to the extreme amounts of violence found in them. In conclusion if your looking for a good story and wanna kill 15+ hours this is the game for you.

    Great job Rockstar

    Posted .

    If you are a fan of Rockstar's games at all, you will enjoy this game. Much better than RDR, big improvements on all aspects of gameplay. Cars have actual manufactor names, massive free roam area for game content, very clean new gameplay engine. Being that it is based on police/detective work, pay attention to the rating if considering it for minors as some of the scenes are pretty graphic. Red Dead Redemption was a great, having played it I was not sure that this game would appeal to me. But it is a very enjoyable experience.

    Easily Rockstar's best game

    Posted .

    If you're looking for a game similar to GTA or Red Dead Redemption gameplay, this game isn't really where you'll find it. LA Noire is it's own game, and the only thing I've seen close to it is Heavy Rain. You start out as a patrol cop, but you gradually work your way up, so the whole game isn't just one genre of cases. Throughout the game, you'll see some pretty gruesome stuff, and you'll start feeling that you're no longer just playing the part of Cole Phelps, you're actually in the game. People say this game gets repetitive, and I can see why. However, all cases are different. Different suspects/victims, locations, causes of death, ect. I played this game for about 6 hours straight, and I didn't even get bored. Aside from the main cases, there are also 40 side cases that will get called in, and you have the option to check them out. Personally, I would recommend doing them. You get experience, and can unlock new things. Another thing, experience. Side missions, interviews, stuff like that can get you it. You can rank up to level 20, and each time you unlock new things. Aside from investigating and interviewing, there are plenty of car chases/foot chases and shootouts to keep you entertained. That actually reminded me most of GTA. You'll have to drive A LOT. Everywhere from place to place to get to wherever you need to go, it gets kinda boring sometimes. But, your partner can drive too, as like a fast-travel thing. ALSO, they're making plenty of DLC for this game I'm sure, so it'll just keep stretching out. I liked GTA, and in my opinion, this is so much better. I completely recommend it.

    WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW

    Great game. Its been out 16 days, and I have played my way through it twice. Yes, I am currently unemployed like a whole lot of people. 2nd time I played it through I only played the major part of the game, without doing any side missions at all. My boyfriend had seen me play it a couple times my first time through, and was very interested in what was going on. So I played it through the 2nd time so that he could just watch. Any he really really enjoyed it. And I'm talking about someone who hates video games. It has a great story, the graphics are fantastic, and it is full of surprises that will have you very confused. This is a good thing in gaming. Just watch for the best place to buy it. Trading in old games is a great thing to do with games you don't play anymore. Someone is currently offering a great special on trade ins. You get a bonus $10 credit for every 3 games you trade in. So if you got 3 games you not playing, you might be able to get the game for $30, or $40. I traded in a bunch of games in and ended up with almost $300.00 in store credit. AWESOME DEAL!!!!!!!!!

    My wife just bought this game because she really liked Heavy Rain and wanted something similar. It may be slow paced for some people but we both really enjoyed playing this game, it is fun and different than a lot of the other games out there.

    Criminal Minds & Law & Order Wrapped In One

    Posted .

    I am a huge fan of anything crime-related, therefore am a huge fan of criminal justice dramas. The storyline is really interesting and a lot of fun. The graphics are astounding. When I saw the trailer for L.A. Noire it was actually the biggest push for me to finally buy the PS3 (I had been putting it off even though I am a huge PS fan) and I was not disappointed.

    Its an Awesome Game But its not Call of Duty lol

    Posted .

    Bought This game about two weeks ago and believe me when i tell you its an awesome game. This game will have you feeling like a police officer, After this game i respect the police lol. Lets Get to the point This game takes place the West Side also known as California. You will play a police officer in the LAPD and as you pass missions your Rank will go up and you'll become homicide detectives, vice detectives and so on. For all you people worried about graphics(one of my top concerns in a game) the graphics are beautiful its 720p but wow its sharp and the natural motions of the characters will have you feeling like your in a movie, You will also see several celebrities in the game(awesome touch). I beat the game in a week, I'm not that addicted to my ps3 but when it came to this game i actually sat there and played for 1hr and 30 on average until i beat the game. Overall the game is great worth my 64 bucks at best buy, why best buy and not game stop you ask? Because its closer to my house and the best buy chicks are ... :) Its no call of duty but its an awesome game PSN-Armaniexchange3

    Open world like gta but has more story! The only downside is there is nudity in some cases. Not something you want playing if you have young family around.
