A Rewarding Experience

elchapohefe | May 8, 2014 | Review of LA Noire The Complete Edition

This game is a fairly unique experience. The face mapping techniques add a great deal of fun in correctly sleuthing out truth, even though it can sometimes be slightly repetitive to interview witnesses. At a few points the story is a bit slow paced, but if you are a patient gamer it won't even be noticeable.

The gunplay is fairly similar to grand theft auto, but unfortunately you are not allowed to use your weapon freely. This can sometimes be a positive because it makes you focus on the story, but consequently reduces freedom.

The setting is one of the most fantastic things about the game. It has a classic feel, and does as well as any oscar-bait period drama in setting the mood.

If you are already familiar with film noir you will be very happy with the story , but newcomers to the genre might be left with a twinge of disappointment.
