No multi and no Piano gun....mixed feelings
not gonna come here and lie....Im okay with the game being centered on the story...Bondi's done a ton of great work on all aspects insofar as I can tell and it looks like it'll be not just be perfect for but also maybe even demand multiple playthroughs!!!! which I can get behind since I've only been able to bring myself to run through the stories of Rockstar's other games only once.
But on the other hand not being able to get the piano gun ( a very nice looking Thompson) is gonna kinda suck.....but for that I guess I only have myself to blame... Being how I am a power up rewards member but didn't go and preorder soon enough....but that little bit aside I think I'll be able to deal with not having 1 fancy gun
good for da few hours
it is good for a few hours but there is no online play after you beat the game thats it
Ok so, this is not a average Rockstar game. This is way different. I think that is neat. The attention to detail in this game is relatively important throughout the whole game but in my opinion most things are simple. This game is not for everyone though, truth be told it is repetitive and it is kind of slow but I like detective work. if you don't like paying attention don't get the game because you need to if you want a free roam game look somewhere else. There is an aspect of it here but it's not a true free roam seeing as there is little to do other than your assigned missions. But all of these things I don't care about really. yes, disappointing a bit but the real beef I have with this game is that the story is complete garbage. Your constantly changing departments and partners and the cases are so short that you only get about half an hour of gameplay. These things don't ruin the game for me though because LA Noir is unique and maybe when the price goes down it would be a great buy.
Change is Good
The game is different. Different isn't always bad though. It is not GTA, or Red Dead, but is its own thing. You go case by case, and in the beginning there is no free roam, but just solve the first few cases and you will be able to solve crimes at your own will. Free roam is different, because you can't just whip your gun out and shoot. You can only aim and shoot when you find danger. You travel with a partner, and the hand-to-hand combat is pretty cool too. There are some 20-25 cases to solve in the main story. That doesn't sound like a lot, but most will take around 45 minutes to an hour if you are playing them for the first time. There are also 40 side cases. In free roam you can take calls from dispatch and handle it with your partner. The game is pretty sweet. Don't buy if your just looking for some shooting action. The game is built around mystery, but when you get to the action, it is amazing. Chasing suspects on foot is my favorite. It's good for a change by catching criminals, when you usually are the criminal in a game.
Good game, but nothing to go crazy over
I haven't played the game all the way through yet, but after the first few cases I've started to realize that there's not much complexity to the game as far as sidequests and other things you can do. The graphics are amazing, yes, the game feels almost like a movie. The sound is magnificent and they really captured the feel of the 40's. But despite all that, just solving mysteries and responding to the occasional dispatch gets boring after a while! I feel as though compared to the incredible amount of things you can do in GTA and also Red Dead Redemption, this is a bit of a letdown. You can pick up as many or as few clues you want, at the end of the day there's minimal skill required to solve cases. In my opinion, the character of Cole Phelps sort of falls flat, as there is little to no chance for you to determine his actions or his characteristics. This makes it hard for the gamer to connect with him. Definitely not a bad game, but I'm not going crazy over this. GTA and RDR are much, much better.
Great Story, Amazing Graphics
This is one of those games I play once a year or so. I got LA Noire when a friend of mine was giving away a stack of games he didn't play anymore. I wasn't originally interested in it, but it became one of my favorite games fast.The graphics are amazing, especially with the facial movements. I wouldn't say the game has THE best graphics, but I have never seen a video game that had character facial expressions that are this detailed. The story is an engaging "who-done-it" mystery that makes more and more sense the more you play it (again, the reason I've played it several times). The one thing that was... I guess alarming... was the nudity. It just caught me off-guard. But the nudity, it being a crime game, is used to progress the story and not just for the sake of having nudity in a game. That being said, it defiantly has some adult themes, and is not a game for children. All in all, I would defiantly recommend LA Noire to anyone looking for an action game with a heavy story. The one thing that I find most disappointing is the lack of a sequel!
Game of the Summer
Brendan McNamara, the writer, director and creative head at Team Bondi said that the original memory space was 6 or 7 disks but they've compressed them down to 3 which is still pretty amazing. The motion capture technology they've used in the game will not disappoint. There's also a difficulty setting for gamers that wish to take things a little tougher than the standard neutral feel that R* had always used. I'm anxious to see what rain and night will do to the face of a witness or suspect as they try to spill the beans. L.A. Noire will be the game of the summer with 20+ hours of play and even more with replay value and unlockables. A sandbox game without multiplayer may be a drag to some but the replay value of the game is worth the next play through and so on. What I find interesting about large, engrossing sandbox games is the amount of detail that was put in, the physics of the game engine and zone mechanics. The cause and effect of a crime, and, thankfully, the developers haven't forgotten any of that.
