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.

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).

I have Windows 7 64 bit, Intel i7 3.4ghz processor, 8GB SDRAM, Nvidia GTS250 1GB video, Sound Blaster Xfi Extreme audio card. I installed the game and was never able to get it to run to the point that it would even ask for the serial number. I spent hours online trouble shooting possible problems.. I installed the latest Nvidia drivers, the verion of C++ on the game disk, along with the Netframework v3.5 (since it stated it isn't compatible with v4), the "Social Club" setup, etc. I tried using the execute switches, -str, -npd, etc., I tried various compatibility modes. Nothing worked. This was a complete waste of time and money and I was really looking forward to playing this as it looks incredible in the previews and screenshots. I ended up returning it to Amazon for a refund.

Stupid is as stupid does. I totally got wooed by a temporary sale on this game without paying attention to all the past reviews. As of Aug 2014 I too suffered the same problem of being able to install the game with no errors, but not being able to successfully launch it. I am not dummy as far as tech troubleshooting, but despite my best efforts, I failed miserably ever trying to get this game launched. Amazon, Steam and other software retailers should be ashamed at putting out this junk on the market, when it clearly has demonstrated over and over again by report of many users to be DEFECTIVE in its design. Good thing it's not a car, we would have had thousands of crashes and deaths by now, with no one doing a darned thing about it! Come on, guys, refuse to promote game designers that do not put out a good product. Or at least take off the ones that are obviously of poor quality.
