Interesting, yet sparse

everon42 | Sept. 14, 2013 | Review of LA Noire

At first glance, LA Noire comes off as a sprawling city with opportunities at every doorstep to solve a crime, explore a city and search for clues. But the formula & mechanics it highlights as being new and exciting runs thin pretty quickly. You'll move form point A to B to C, interview a few people and along the way shoot some guys in a side mission. Then rinse and repeat.

The game comes across as if it was designed to be so much more, but ultimately features got cut to make a much sparse game. As a result its unevenly paced game because they didn't bother thinking about that element.
