A Concept PieceStuman31 | Nov. 25, 2013 | See all Stuman31's reviews »
One thing that is great about Rockstar making such successful games is that it allows it to create concept games like this one. La Noire isnt going to blow you away on any aspect. Its for those who enjoy a good crime mystery. I did finish this game, but did feel like i really had no massive highs or lows. I dont think it will knock your socks off, but it is a pleasant game that would be enjoyable for even causal gamers
Very Great if You Can Get Past the RepetitionTheSteve | Nov. 23, 2013 | See all TheSteve's reviews »
When I first jumped into this game, it was the most amazing thing ever. You get to do detective work, chase bad guys, EVERYTHING. Then after my stint in homicide, everything started to get repetitive. The storyline is great. Voice acting great. You feel very immersed when you play this game. But after awhile you find yourself doing the same thing over and over, gameplay wise. The story is always different which is nice. Don't get me wrong. I really like this game. I just couldn't handle the repetition. So if you don't mind the constant driving, walking around an entire house for clues, interrogating, then you'll love this game.
Amazing concept! MASTERPIECE!safzan02 | Oct. 27, 2013 | See all safzan02's reviews »
Amazing game set in the old 60s. You are Cole Phelps. A detective. Amazing game, haven't finished it yet, good single player, you can prove that you're an awesome detective if you don't use walkthroughs through out the game. Though this game DOES NOT HAVE FREE ROAM, it's still fun. One of the best AAA titles out there at the moment. This game had a amazing concept, you will love this game if you have been a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series. There are many features in this game such as interrogation. This game is just like a detective simulator, but with a great story. Loved it. MASTERPIECE!

This is just one of those games that just has it all, great graphics, great acting, great animations, good controls, superb story line, wonderful late 40`s setting that will truly transport you to1947, it also has a lot of replay value just to see how characters react to different scenarios, this game by Team Bondi can only be described as a "Masterpierce".

LA Noire is a great addition to Rockstar's ever growing catalogue of Third Person Role Playing Games. Initially, it appears to be neither as exciting or as action packed as previous titles (Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Autos, Etc.) LA Noire instead relies on it's in depth storyline and intelligible problem solving which brings a great change to the running and gunning nature of the Grand theft Auto series. The overall gameplay is great, from simply wandering around a suspect's house looking for clues, chasing a criminal on foot to intercepting a bank heist amidst a heavy gun battle, LA Noire proves to be just as thrilling as it's modern setting counterparts.
I highly recommend this game to any followers of Rockstar's previous games or anyone looking for a well written, well designed game set in a fascinating era.
