Game Informer Rating:

Rated 8.75 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Underrated, but worth it. Some of the best, highly-polished graphics I've seen from a PS3 game, mixed with some solid gameplay and an interesting storyline makes this detective drama a very underrated gem from the makers of Grand Theft Auto.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Masterpiece From Rockstar I did not have my hopes high for tis game, and that was a big mistake. The story, even though I am only a few hours in, is pretty interesting. Examining crime scenes, while it is not very difficult, can take a few minutes, and the interrogations are very intense and sometimes challenging. The graphics are the best that I have seen in a video game so far. The voice acting is also spot on, and so is the area. You really feel like you are in L.A.! The game gets everything right from the cars, to the buildings, and to the music. The shootouts are also very fun, and so are the chases. This is one of the best Rockstar games that I have ever played, and this is the second best mystery game to date. The only mystery game that is better (in my opinion) is Heavy Rain. Get this game if you love detective movies/books/games, or if you are just into Rockstar games in general.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game! I thought this game was great. I thought the graphics were stunning and very realistic-looking, especially when played on an HD tv. The technology used to create the expressions by the characters was another touch that I felt made the game a little more real. The attention to detail was clear in this game, from the tiny changes in a character's expression to weather changes to parts of the investigation that were blink and miss, yet integral to how you succeeded in the investigation. I also really liked that there were intuition points and helpful hints to help us figure out what line to take when questioning suspects. The music for the times was dead on and as an oldie aficionado, I appreciated that. And how about that hauntingly beautiful entrance theme? I had to get the soundtrack from Spotify the minute I found out the name of the composer. I did think that the game itself was a little short and after a lot of build-up I thought the ending was anti-climactic. I didn't like how the game ended at all but the rest of the game and being able to replay the levels again to unlock more achievements makes up for it....I guess. lol In short, I'm very glad Rockstar made the effort that they did to put out this game. I personally have a hard time finding games that I really enjoy, but this one pulled me in from jump and I'm sad I already beat it. It was really exciting leading up to the big finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something different from Rockstar Games For those who have been living under a rock, Rockstar is known for hit games like Grand Theft Auto, in which you take control of a free-to-kill mass murderer committing crimes left and right. L.A. Noire is completely different, as you take control of LAPD Detective and World War II veteran Cole Phelps in an attempt to thwart crime in a violent city where everybody has something to hide. Phelps begins as a regular street cop, but the chief of police recognizes his success as a patrolman and promotes him to Traffic, Homicide, Ad Vice and Arson. L.A. Noire uses Motion Capture Technology (mocap) which uses real actors (Aaron Staton, Sean McGowan, Andrew Connolly, etc) to portray the game's characters. The result is a very realistic looking game. This game makes you feel as if you are really living in 1947 Los Angeles with realistic looking vehicles and a massive map. In fact, if there's one thing I can absolutely gush over it is the graphical quality. This is a gorgeous looking game, whether you are trying to navigate the Westlake Tar Pits or scaling the chandelier inside the Hall of Records. With many large cases, this game will take you a long time to beat. But even after you complete the main story, there are still other things to do like commandeering different cars for your vehicle showroom, discovering hidden landmarks or solving street crimes. In fact this game is so large, some of it had to be left out and included as DLC. The DLC package includes new cases, new outfits and new weapons. This is certainly a game I can recommend to anyone who likes noir films. The PS3 version will experience some lag or possibly overheat the system, so I would recommend you play the PC version from Steam, assuming you have the specs to run it. Do NOT buy the Xbox 360 version, as it was split up into two separate discs. The PS3 version is contained in one disc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well done This game was great. I love the detective concept because I haven't played anything like it before. All the DLC is excellent and the story is superb. The only thing that kinda sucks is the ending and it doesn't have much replay value because you know how it ends. You could do free roam, but eh. You know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Rockstar at it's best! This game makes you feel like a true 1940's detective as you interrogate, pursue on foot and in cars, investigate, and even respond to street crimes! The graphics are as close to real as it gets when examining how people talk and their facial expressions, even the bodies you investigate are terrifyingly realistic. Overall, the graphics are insanely good. The physics engine is also incredibly good as I have experienced no lagging or glitches of any kind, so the gameplay is very smooth. Lasting appeal is also high because there is so much to do between the 21 story cases, 40 street crimes, rare mystery cars you can collect, plus all of the add on content. I could go on but I suggest you try the game for yourself because it is a fantastic masterpiece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game Just picked this game up a week ago now that it is dirt cheap, and this is has Rockstar written all over it. Great Graphics,Sound, The open world is Beautifully authentic to that time period and the Gameplay is stiff in a good way like RDR. In this game though the focal point is Solving Crimes by reading body language by questioning suspects/witnesses. The facial animations & facial gestures in this game are breakthrough & something I've never seen before. Characters make facial movements exactly like a real life person would, pretty weird & awesome to see in a videogame. I've only played a bit but the story seems good so far, very early to mid 1900's. The game is a Rockstar game but like GTA & RDR, it has its own identity that separates itself from other Rockstar titles & other games which is a Strong point. From what I heard, the game itself is short, but from my point of view, short or not...it is a very good game & definitely is a worthy buy for its current price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken I wanted to like this game SO MUCH, but it fails because it does not work! I read many reviews that this game is so great but this game keeps freezing my ps3. My ps3 is fairly new so before you think it's my PS3's problem, it isn't. Every other game I have works perfectly (12+ different games that work flawlessly). I got up to the "The Fallen Idol" mission, and it freezes each time. It seems to happen to both the PS3 and the XBOX because the game is so big. I even saw some Youtube videos where the game broke their system!! Unbelievable... I can't believe gamestop would sell this junk to me. I should have done my research before. DO NOT BUY!!
