Summary: I thought this game was great. I thought the graphics were stunning and very realistic-looking, especially when played on an HD tv. The technology used to create the expressions by the characters was another touch that I felt made the game a little more real. The attention to detail was clear in this game, from the tiny changes in a character's expression to weather changes to parts of the investigation that were blink and miss, yet integral to how you succeeded in the...
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!
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.
Summary: I liked the game, has a lot of action, and it made me feel like a cop from a long time ago. There is a huge flaw though. ITS VERY REPETITIVE! In the game you will be doing the same thing most of the time. During Girl Death Scenes, doing the 1st case tells you what you're going to be doing for the whole chapter. I'm not gonna tell you the spoiler since it spoils 1/4 of the game.
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.
