Summary: My husband and I are always looking for something to do together and LA Noire was right up our alley! Love the cases and the story lines...only thing was the game glitches...you never knew when they'd happen. Most of the time they were funny. Another great game by Rockstar!
Summary: The pros absolutely outweigh the cons and I would recommend this game to anyone.
Pros: This game tops all for originality. The game play itself was extremely easy in my opinion. There are your routine shootouts and fist brawls and the game mechanics that seemingly mirrors Grand Theft Auto, but the main premise of the game is to wake the investigator within yourself. The story line is gold and the main character Cole Phelps is one you really can come to connect with.
Cons: The game is short and very easy - there are times if you fail a action sequence within the game, you can opt to skip it without consequence other than losing your pride as a gamer.
Summary: To start off, I had so much hope that this game would blow gamers away but I was wrong. Don't get me wrong though, it's fun at first. The investigations are pretty cool and the whole investigation portion of the games are also great but let's face it. It's so repetitive that it bores you throughout the game. Oh look a body, investigate the arms, hands, face, what's in this pocket? oh look a paper, let's drive to this place, then back to that place.
Technically excellent... but ultimately dissastifying

Summary: There was SO much potential for this game. It was a great premise (be a detective) set in a fantastic time and place (post-WW2 L.A.). But Rockstar ultimately didn't live up to the (admittedly) enormous potential that was there. Pros: Technically, it's marvelous. The sound, visuals and acting are stellar. What they did with facial animations was like watching the actors themselves, and hopefully more games use the process in the future.
Summary: This game is the most amazing blend of driving sequences, detective clue hunting, and spectacular fist and gun fights! This game is a must of any puzzle lover, who may or may not like shooters (action sequences can be skipped!!!!
Excerpt: LA Noire was one of 2011’s most ambitious titles. A crime drama that pays homage to classic films such as Chinatown in terms of style and theme, developer Team Bondi’s rendition of Los Angeles in the 1940s in uncanny. However, the repetitive mechanics, goals and the lack of any real narrative hold LA Noire back from true greatness.
Summary: Yea kept giving me the same cases got kind of boring after awhile its a game you really have to be into to find the fun in it and the free roam well think about it. YOUR A COP. COPS LIVE BY RULES. Simple you cannot cycle through your weapons or walk around in em. In my opinion they should have done the robberies murders etc. random so you can have your weapons at all times instead of mini quests. Good game though don`t regret getting it.
Summary: This is an excellent game from 2011 and a sleeper title to some extent. While Rock Star games has great franchises and have been risk takes before, this is definitely something new to a world of crowed sequels, prequels, and rehashes the video game industry has been producing. The setting is LA in the late 1940's and has been recreated beautifully. The stories are decent and are a nice nod to the noire and detective genre.
