Summary: This was a cheap game and cheap shipping and handling. The game works great no scratches or marks on any of the three discs. The game disc holder for disc one and two was not connected to the case itself and the case was open but nothing was broke and the holder for dics 1 and 2 snapped right back in place. The only fault I had was the outside case was banged up but nothing big.
Summary: This game is one of my all time favorite games and I think is very underrated. It's like a 1940s detective version of the Grand Theft Auto games. I recognized a lot of the characters from random tv shows and movies which was kind of cool. The overall story is good and it all ties together at the very end of it. I like how each case is a little different, but the side missions get quite a bit repetitive.
Summary: Looking for non-stop action adventure and pulse pounding thrills? DON'T BUY THIS GAME! If you're looking for a game where you use your brains, and you don't carry an incredible arsenal of firepower, this is the game for you. This is a detective game. You look for clues, question witnesses and other persons of interest and you solve crimes. Yes, there's a fair amount of shooting, but Call of Duty this ain't.
Summary: The plot in this game isn't something new. Allowing the user to be the police officer, and a good one, is for the most part new. There is almost an RPG like feel to the game, with long dialog while you're interrogating people. This may come off as boring to some, but I assure you the scenes aren't just fillers. They're fun, interesting, integral parts of the whole plot.
Summary: I usually HATE games that are not online games, mostly games like COD black ops, splinter cell, ETC. Since I have been deployed this is a great game to kill time. Good game overall, great storyline, graphics, and gameplay.
Summary: What's Good: -You get to play in 4 different departments (Traffic/Homicide/Vice/Arson), so you learn a lot -Detail on faces helps bring out a lot of the characters emotions -If you love this time period ('40s, Hollywood, Suits/Fedoras, White Walls, etc.) - you'll love this game. There's a lot of eye candy to go around.
Summary: "L.A. Noire" is a very involved investigation style game that will be best enjoyed by players that have patience to let the story develop and like solving mysteries. While there are a few "action" elements where there are shootouts and fistfights, these are somewhat cumbersomely implemented and difficult to master. The real value of the game is in the in-depth look into to 1940's L.A., complete with an amazingly detailed city to explore.
Summary: Rockstar is usually known for their work on popular sandbox games and for turning the genre into what it is with the Grand Theft Auto series. With LA Noire, Rockstar takes a backseat to Team Bondi in development, and they put out a title that doesn’t quite make good use of its fantastic setting, but is still a fun and incredibly well written game that explores the seedy underbelly of 1947 Los Angeles.
