3.0 out of 5 stars Poorly executed game with a lot of promise November 18, 2011
By Chuck
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Complete
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
L.A. Noire follows the exploits of a WWII vet and now burgeoning cop Cole Phelps through 1940s Los Angeles. Rockstar has created a fantastically detailed overworld which bests its previous Grand Theft Auto series graphically and in its attention to detail. The game centers on sleuthing for clues and dramatic encounters that you have as you attempt to squeeze the truth out of witnesses and suspects and Rockstar has taken extraordinary measures in casting fantastic actors and using facial scanning software to create the most authentic and emotional interactions between characters which I've ever seen in a game.

Unfortunately, despite this incredibly promising platform, the game itself is pretty poorly executed. Though graphically beautiful, Rockstar seems to have done a slap job in porting and optimizing the game for the PC, and my fairly beefy PC frequently choked and stuttered to deliver consistent framerates even at modest settings. A couple of nearly barren rooms were so inexplicably shakey as to make moving about them difficult. It's possible that patches and updates in the future will address this, but who knows. Another big annoyance is the fact that you cannot skip cut-scenes. If you ever fail a portion of a mission you have to watch the cut-scene before your part which can be several minutes long. If it's a tough chase, you might end up having to watch the same scene seven or eight times.

The overworld is also surprisingly dull. Despite being an enormous recreation of 1940s Los Angeles, with incredible attention to architecture, pedestrians, automobiles and the signs and products of the time, there's hardly anything to actually do.

3.0 out of 5 stars L.A. Noire: How I fixed My Game January 2, 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Complete
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been intrigued by this game since I first glimpsed the facial animation technology used to render such amazingly detailed features and expressions on the game characters, as well as the potential for a great interactive detective story set in 1940's Los Angeles; however, I was leery to spend $50 on a PC title so many people have had problems with. I finally decided to buy/download from Steam (because it was on sale), and I followed the advice on the help forums and was able to get the game running (which after reading some of the reviews seems a small miracle).

Excited to see the game boot up, I was instantly crushed by the dreadfully handicapped graphics. The performance of the game was abysmal. After updating drivers, dropping the graphics settings to the minimum and tweaking all the computer setting I could, the game still stuttered and lagged horribly. Admittedly my rig is not cutting edge (Windows 7 64bit, Intel Core Duo 2 (3.0GHz), (2) GeForce GTX260 SLI, 8 GB Ram), but it runs plenty of graphic intensive games just fine. I tried! truly I did, but after only 30 minutes of game play, I just couldn't get into the game or story with such horrible frame rates. So, alas, it's hard to say if the game is actually fun...it certainly looked fun.

Although I was really disappointed, I can't say that I was surprised. This is Rockstar's signature "nose thumb" at the PC gaming community. As far back as GTA Vice City, Rockstar has been releasing PC games as an afterthought, never bothering to optimize or rebuild the code to run smoothly on PC rigs. We, fellow PC gamers, do not make up enough market-share for Rockstar to really care. This is unfortunate, because I really do like their games (when they work).

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb, but technical issues drag it down a bit November 16, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Complete
L.A. Noire is one of those games that really appeals to me -- part action, part adventure, part puzzle, and part cinematic. I was quite excited to hear it come out for PC, and I got it the day of release. Overall, I've enjoyed the game immensely. The pacing, the story, and the characters are near perfectly executed. However, several technical issues mar the game, enough for me to lower my score by an entire star. If the points at the end of this review aren't a huge deal for you, then feel free to consider this a 5-star game.

The gameplay is superb, switching easily between exploration, evidence gathering, interrogation, and action sequences. The cases are also interesting and have lots of small twists and turns that keep you guessing. Even in the more straightforward cases, you enjoy moving the plot forward because of the characters and writing. Every person you meet, even the minor ones who are incidental to the case, have their own unique personality traits and quirks, so you always look forward to speaking to someone new. The acting in this game is also top notch -- not only are the voices well done, but the technology the team used to capture facial expressions adds a whole new dimension of bringing the characters to life. Indeed, an integral part of interrogations involves you looking at their faces to tell whether they're lying or not.

As an added bonus, the game is fairly long and will give you many hours of entertainment. One aspect of the game that I particularly like is the pacing. You don't always feel compelled to rush from one place to another. During the investigation and questioning phases, you're encouraged to slow down a bit and simply enjoy the scenery or flip through your notebook of clues.
