Fun and Interesting

on 6/21/2011

This is a refreshing change of pace for Rockstar, and this whodunnit style game will keep having you coming back for a taste. From its phenomenal scoring and music selection, to its cuing and environmental noise, the audio on this game is spectacular. The voice and character acting is excellent, and the facial tech used for this game was amazing. You can actually recognize actors, and see fine details needed to crack a suspect. I recommend this to anybody who likes crime shows and film noire. Read More

Engaging Mobster Shooter!

by Anthony on 10/14/2011

This game was hyped up so much before it was released. Thankfully it's actually pretty good and lives up to the hype. The facial technology is awesome to see in motion. The world is a bit small compared to some other open-world games but not too bad. The shooting is a bit clunky at times and the camera doesn't always cooperate but it doesn't happen too often. I really liked watching the story played out it actually felt like you were playing a movie. I'd recommend this if you like mobster type detective games! Read More

Product Description
L.A. Noire is a gritty, single player detective game set on the infamous streets and in the smoke-filled back rooms of post-war Los Angeles. Designed and developed with a nod to the classic film noire movie genre, L.A. Noire blends crystal clear graphics that bring the iconic look and feel of the era to life, with a combination of innovative technology and unique gameplay that allow you to solve crimes through interrogations and investigation. Additional features include: five LAPD based crime desks to work, the ability to analyze the case as well as suspects for clues, an accurate block-by-block recreation of eight sq miles of 1947 Los Angeles, multiple difficulty settings and more.

Synopsis
Amid the postwar boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, newly minted detective Cole Phelps is thrown headfirst into a city drowning in violence and corruption. Utilizing groundbreaking new technology that captures an actor's facial performance in astonishing detail, L.A. Noire is a violent crime thriller that blends breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience. Interrogate witnesses, search for clues and chase down suspects as you struggle to find the truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.

Against an overarching plot of violence and betrayal, L.A. Noire challenges players to solve a series of self-contained cases as they work their way through the ranks of the LAPD. Each case features a distinct storyline with a beginning, middle and end, and each successfully solved case brings new challenges and leads Cole closer to the true story at the dark heart of the Los Angeles criminal underworld.

Solve a variety of cases across the crime desks of: Patrol, Traffic, Homicide, Vice and Arson Search crime scenes for clues, question witnesses and interrogate suspects as you search for the truth in each case Use your wits to analyze suspect's behavior and separate the truth from the lies Experience a stunningly accurate block-by-block recreation of 8 sq miles of 1947 Los Angeles Rise up through the ranks of the LAPD from a beat cop to other positions as LAPD detective Cole Phelps Solve brutal crimes, plots and conspiracies inspired by famous crimes from 1947 Los Angeles, one of the most corrupt and violent times in the City of Angels' history Multiple difficulty settings give players of all abilities the chance to step into the shoes of a detective in postwar L.A.


Technology Behind The Game

L.A. Noire employs ground-breaking new MotionScan performance-scanning technology, which utilizes 32 high-definition cameras to capture actors’ faces in 3D, transferring every aspect of the performance into the game, enabling players for the first time to lip-read in-game characters and to read every facial expression down to the finest detail.

Review L.A. Noire is everything that people expected it to be. It has a fantastic set of stories that drive the game from beginning to end, beautifully motion captured actors and enough gameplay elements to keep the gamer deeply involved. On top of this there is a large city to explore and enjoy. Rockstar certainly brought the goods with this one.
