4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating & Well Thought Out May 17, 2011
By DMK
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
L.A. Noire is a very good game for the gamer that likes to be analytical, gather clues, and figure things out. It's slow paced, as police work usually is, but it's also very rewarding. The Motion Scan technology in this game is fantastic, and I see it being built upon for future releases of completely different games. The ability to read an actors expression is certainly pushing a new paradigm in games that just hasn't been executed before with any success. Team Bondi delivers here.

The story 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 story.

The game is still an open world concept, so you can move around and explore the beautiful old L.A. city that Team Bondi laid out. There are also a number of side missions that you can do.

I gave it a 4 out of 5 because the game can get a bit redundant at times. Don't worry, the story does get varied, but a few of the cases are too similar. The other reason I took a bit off the final score is that there just isn't much room for replay value here. Short of the inevitable game add-on's that you can purchase from the XBox Live Marketplace, there's not going to be much reason to come back once you beat it. I'd put the gameplay at about 15-25 hours. This doesn't take into account how much time you spend exploring away from the main story line and side missions.

L.A. Noire is definitely worthy of your collection. I hope we see more Team Bondi developments produced by Rockstar.

Thank you for reading!

Before I begin, I just want to say I have a feeling people are going to vote down this review without reading it or taking in the arguments just because it doesn't fit the popular view of this game. However If I can convince just one person to not buy into the hype and consider both the deserved praise and, more importantly, the legitimate criticisms against this game, I'll be happy. This review isn't for the fans, its for potential players who want an honest review.

Something about LA Noire captured my imagination months before it was released. It featured a new technology called "motion scan" which allowed for it to have the most realistic facial animations I'd ever seen. When I saw the motion scan demonstration, I was floored. I saw it as a huge step forward for narratives in games and if it was done right could make games rival or even surpass movies in terms of emotional investment.

And what a seemingly great way to show it off! A game about a detective who has to read people's intentions through their facial cues? It has all the makings of an incredible game. It also takes place in my hometown and in one of my favorite time periods. And its Rockstar! There's no way they could screw this up!

I was (and still am) so tired of games with immature and underdeveloped stories. I was ready for a game with a mature story not just for its own sake, but one that integrated itself with gameplay in such a way that it couldn't have been done in any other medium. Finally a game that understands that interactivity is the key to making games into a unique art form.

And then the game pretty much ruined everything it had going for it. Motion scan ruined by having a boring and unlikeable protagonist.

3.0 out of 5 stars Endlessly Repetitive June 3, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
L.A. NOIRE has so many good things going for it that it's a shame the game ends up being so disappointing.

The good:
-Fantastic motion-capture performances from terrific actors, including Mad Men cast members
-Superb atmosphere

The bad:
-Game play mechanics aren't particularly fun and are simplistic
-After playing through several cases you'll learn that you've already played everything L.A. NOIRE has to offer. The hours to come are simple variations on the same theme (go to the crime scene, interview suspects, drive around, then catch a fleeing suspect or enter a shootout). There's almost no variety.
-Stupid story with unsatisfying dramatic payoff
-Side "street missions" are completely disposable, most are brief shootouts or other "chases" that are over fast
-Big city with very little to do

Overall this game has an extremely low "fun factor." It's unfortunate that Rockstar and the developers went to so much trouble to recreate the era, only to drag it down with game mechanics that are simplistic and ultimately repetitive.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but it seems unfinished May 18, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm enjoying playing this game (I think), but I'm finding it a bit clunky and frustrating in all the places it shouldn't be. And in far too many places I'm thinking "Is that all there is?"

I have framerate issues in some outdoors areas. Also, I'm experiencing annoyance caused by the fact that in some areas I can't climb low walls. Sometimes I can scale fences, sometimes I can't. The developers only made some features climbable. The Assassin's Creed series gets this right. This game, not so much. If you're going to make certain things climbable, make them all climbable. Don't make a fence climbable in one spot, but 20 yards away the same height fence is not. Nothing breaks the sense of 'suspension of disbelief' more than having your game character running in place when faced with a hose line or a 2ft high wall that the game developers forgot to allow you to negotiate.

Then there's the actual gameplay. It often seems to me that this is more a walkthrough than a game, as each game decision is virtually handed to you on a platter. Then, if you get a decision wrong, it hands you the right answer anyway. So none of the decisions you make actually affect the outcome of the game. It's essentially a linear game that's pretending to have a branching storyline that your decisions affect.

Then there's clunky gameplay factors like the investigations. You seem to spend most of your time running around interior walls waiting for a tell-tale controller rumble that tells you that you're in the vicinity of a clue - but try to pick it up and you find yourself stumbling about trying to find the exact spot the game wants you to be in to collect it.
