"The awesome performances and great facial capture make every interrogation and investigation a riveting affair." -IGN.com
"L.A. Noire is a unique game with a terrific sense of period atmosphere, absorbing investigation mechanics, and a haunting tale with plenty of moments that would be right at home in a classic film noir."- Gamespot.com

Astonishing game. Pioneer in realistic facial animations while using real actors the whole process. Interrogate and incriminate suspects, explore crime scenes, analyse evidences and engage in exciting car chases. Open world game with collectibles and side missions. Superb voice acting and very good graphics. For anyone who wanted a game similar to Gta V but with less action and more story and mystery and those that love detective stories this is for you.
LA Noire is an adult experience and a great narrative for our media. The game is expertly written and filled with wonderfully technical aspects like excellent motionscan technology. The storyline is very addictive, you want to play more and more. System of investigations and hearings is really great, you have to focus on scenery to find every clue. During game you can really feel the climate of Hollywood's Golden Age. Graphics and animations during hearing are great, but the city looks only so-so. and side tasks could be more varied. Not everyone will like this game because there is more dialogue here than action, but I guarantee that it will find its fans.
Rockstar Games leaves the GTA a little aside and makes LA Noire a game that you control a Police Officer that in the course of the game becomes a Detective, well the game is excellent, it has incredible facial expressions, one of the best of all time, graphics Beautiful, and an excellent storyline, every case that you participate has great history, and needs to make great exploration, the game does not get boring, but there are some cases that are very boring, and the gameplay is well caught, especially in the car, The game is an open world, but it should not be, it's a dead world, it does not compare with other GTA or Red Dead Redemption games, the characters are interesting, and the end of the game is good, another great Rockstar game , Well worth it.
Awesome game from a story/adventure perspective and just the way it recreates a by gone era even if it feels empty and stark once you start to stray from the beaten path. The gameplay can be hit or miss but overall it's worth playing and putitng up with its quirks because at the core it's something that deserves to be experienced.
LA Noire is an excellent attempt in providing a truly detective experience, all thanks to new technology implemented by Rockstar that allows NPC to have facial animation which later must be read by the player in order to guess if the interrogated person is lying or not. Overall fun experience.
