L.A. Noire *Post impressions*

Before I even mention the game the box art is very slick, I would very much like to get a poster size of it.

 

On to the game, the opening sets up the game nicely, I like the feeling of vintage L.A. being more than just a city. Investigating my first crime scene was a real thrill, looking for clues may not be exhilarating for some but it really is fun to put pieces of a crime together and solving it 100%. Loving how the game starts up and what I have been playing so far.

 

What do you guys think so far if you have been playing the game yourself?

Looking forward to the South American launch. I've been hearing good things, but the basic is "Not perfect, but a great game." good enough for me!

Reviewers are too picky about little stuff these days that I hardly consider them a factor when choosing a game. I played through a good 2 hours and I was blown away by the detail, voice work, story, and detective work that I lost myself completely in the game.

I think IGN just gives who ever pays them a 9.5 or a 10. They gave MW2 a 9.5 and I didn't think it was great yet LA Noire only gets a 8.5? I love it so far

 

this review is good

Wow, 2 hours of game play and I'm hooked. Fun game with a good mixture of problem solving, driving, and chasing/shooting. The facial expressions are amazing!! 

Be warned tho, this game won't be for everyone. I'd suggest renting it from Redbox for $2 to make sure it's a buy for you. Also, with no multiplayer available, if you play through games fast.. might just want to rent it anyway.

agreed, as for myself, I aim to get a full 100 percent completion rating for this game.

I've got a good friend who is a complete Rockstar MARK! He actually got mad when I told him that I wasn't purchasing this game.... [/facepalm]

 

I wanted this to be a 40's version of Red Dead, but from the way I see it, it's pretty far from. Plus the fact that playing a Cop just seems off in regards to a Rockstar game.

 

Savin my money for when any one of my 5-6 friends who purchased the game will have no reason for it once they are finished.

I love relying on the community when it comes to using intuition points, game is getting a lot harder to determine whether I should doubt or call someone out on a lie. Repetition is in full effect when it comes to crimes but I'm not complaining, the story and solving cases are what keeps me going.

I just made my first wrong accusation by passing over one clue in the game... 8-(

Glad I can replay it later on..

After having put about 40 hours into the game and getting the Platinum I do feel it is a good game but falls short of being anything special because of many game-play flaws, having some glitches and design issues.

Great game.  I have taken a break from it for now.  Still 6 trophies left to get.  I do wish that there were other outcomes for the cases and that the ending would be affected based on performance.  A karma system would have been good for good cop/bad cop.

This game will never stop pissing me off....yet I still can't put it away!

 

Just suck so bad at this whole Truth/Lie thing! I honestly think it's nothing more then a coin-toss as to actually getting this shit right!!!

 

Some actually follow the facial cue's....some give you facial cues just to throw you off....some just laugh at your face and dare you to call them out, then when you do you still get it wrong!

 

....piss's me off to no end! But I hear the end story is good, so I keep putting up with it.
