"Fantastic"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Rockstar are undoubtebly the kings of sandbox and they dont dissapoint with LA Noire. The game is set in 1950's Los Angeles and like Grand Theft Auto 4 and the excellent Red Dead Redemption the game is a sandbox city with the level of detail quite stunning. Where LA Noire differs from previous games is there is a structured story which you work through. This means you are always on a mission (or in this game a case). You can roam the streets during the cases and take on some side call outs but solving the case is always your primary focus. Working on the cases is very satisfying whether you are searching for evidence, interviewing a suspect or in true rockstar style chasing a suspect on foot or in a car. Interrigation is perhaps the highlight of the game. The level of detail in the face model is sensational. You have to read suspect reactions before believing their answer or accusing them of lying. This is quite a challenge and makes the game replayable as you will want to pick up everything you missed first time aroud. Apart from one audio drop out ive encountered no bugs wheras with RDR id found a host by this stage. A clear contender for game of the year.

"Outstanding!"
5 stars"

This brilliantly designed game, set in the 1940's scandalous city of Los Angeles, is one of the best games I have ever played and I have 10 plus gaming platforms and over 100 games.

You play as detective Cole Phelps, A new addition to the L.A.P.D forces fresh from the army. You start off as a on the beat cop, but only for a while before advancing to the position of Traffic, Homocide, Vice and finally Arson, busting criminals using your cunning wit, interrogation, driving skills and skill with weapons, all the while learning about Cole's back story.

With many different vehicles, captivating cases and chases, you'll enjoy hours of fun with this brand new crime thriller from the makers of Grand theft auto, red dead redemption and much more.

"Exciting Detective Game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game was so exciting to play the story missions was really good but i did find the Interrogations to be quite difficult you had to get all the questions right but it didn't matter if you didn't. I would recommend this game to anyone that is a fan of the Rockstar games and Grand Theft Auto 4.

"40's Detective Excelence"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Although not entirely what one would expect of the makers of Grand Theft Auto, L.A. Noire is very gratifying. To best describe my sentiments towards this game I would say Police Quest (tm-) meets GTA. The AI is on the ball and had me fooled on many occasion, the game play is interesting and draws you in. The only thing I found which could be seen as both a positive as a negative is that the story line drew me from the extra missions and finding the hidden items

"over hyped"
2 stars"

I don't understand what the hype with this game is. This game is everywhere, billboards all over the stores, everywhere. Graphics are good, city looks great but gameplay gets boring. I don't see any replay value in this game either. I'd say if you want to try this game, hire it for a week, beat it then thank me you didn't throw your hundred bucks away.

Description

A dark silhouette appears at the end of the alley, and slowly moves toward you as you wait in silent anticipation. The figure is framed by the thin light managing to filter through the dark fog. The streets of Los Angeles are not a welcoming sight at this hour. You pull your hat a little lower, obscuring your appearance from this anonymous informant. He may be on your side, but you aren't taking any chances with a murderer on the loose. You move your hand just the slightest bit and the glint off your revolver finally catches your visitor's eye. He stops dead and you smile. You've got him where you want him, but will he offer up the information you need to solve these heinous crimes- There's only one way to find out.

Experience the thrill of classic detective action with the chill of film noir graphics and themes in L.A. Noire. You'll walk the streets of a perfectly re-created post-war Los Angeles, experiencing the city without freeways, Starbucks or designer dogs. Enjoy this view of 1940's L.A. as you track a heinous murderer committing a series of gruesome brutalities. The drugs, corruption and jazz of this classic decade permeate the storyline and provide an immersive experience you aren't soon to forget. With the open-ended design, you are the only one in charge of your destiny. Will your actions result in a murderer behind bars or will you succumb to corruption and vice-

Features:
  • Film noir theme offers a look back at this classic dark genre
  • Open-ended challenge lets you control your own fate
  • Solve multiple gruesome murders in this interactive detection game to make the streets safe again
  • Realistic graphics re-create the Los Angeles of the 1940's
  • Incorporates classic elements of film noir with intense graphics and a storyline that includes drugs, corruption and iconic jazz
