I LIKE TO HAVE GOOD STICK CONTROL SO THIS GAME IN MY OPINION DOES NOT HAVE THAT LIKE OTHERS I KNOW. THE CHARACTER DOES NOT MOVE WHERE THE STICK TELLS IT 2.

L.A. noire centers around a yong war hero who joins the LAPD in the late 40s. you rise through the ranks as you solve crimes in this open world. this game take lots of story elements from movies of the time, mystery and suspence around ever corner.

PROS:
-the graphics are amazing especially the face animations.
-the acting is good
-story is good <at times>

CONS:
-its boring. the pacing is slow as can be.
-shallow game play. you do everything you'll ever do in this game in the first 30min. (pick-up clues, chase suspect, interrogate, rinse & repeat)
-theres an open world with nothing in it. you'll fast travel most always.
-you could fail every interrogation and still pass. the game plays itself.
-cases are predictable, you know the answer to "who dunn-it" before you're able to do anything about it. for example (SPOILER) in the first case i walked up to the car and know the guy faked his death by killing a pig and he ran off with his mistress, all in the first 2mins. then my girl friend how doesn't play games walked in and she looked at the screen and said "he killed a pig and ran off with his mistress." yet i still had to go through a long line of tail chasing to come to the same conclution in the game. there are lots of cases like this.
-i had a hard to caring about the main character, and later in the game you swith characters. thats when i totally checked out.

ACHEIVEMENTS:
-easy, but irritating. one has you drive ever car in the game all 95 of them. i doesn't help that there random and they all look the same.
