  • Conclusion: As an interactive movie, L.A. Noire stakes its claim as the best-written, best-acted, and most expansive of any I've ever seen. Unlike Heavy Rain, it even sticks the landing, remaining satisfying throughout its duration and holding up under repeat playthroughs.

  • Pros: Transcends all expectations for the medium by introducing theatrical elements never seen before;
  • Cons: A few control frustrations, all easily resolved through more experience with the game.

  • Conclusion: L.A. Noire ist ein erzählerisches Meisterwerk, das durch besonders realistische Mimiken nie dagewesene, lebhafte Charaktere zeichnet. Gerade deshalb wird euch der Titel immer wieder vor die Konsole locken, um nur mal eben noch einen Fall zu lösen.
  • Pros: Tolle Charaktere, Glaubhafte Mimiken, Spannende Story, Tolle Vertonung
  • Cons: Spielprinzip wiederholt sich, Schießereien wirken unpassend
