This game is a totally different type of game Rockstar has ever put out. It is amazing graphics and the capture of 1940's lifestyle is brilliant, but on the other hand it is not an action game. It takes time and focus to get used to the game style. If you have played rockstar games before, give it a try and you might like it.
i rated this game a 9 but i think it's really an 8.7.
to me, after the 1st major story arc ended, the black dahlia murder, it started to get a little boring. the story was still pretty good, the investigating and interrogations were still fun but not as much. i yearned to play a more action packed game like gears of war at times. the gameplay and story didn't grab me like heavy rain did.
the facial expressions are fantastic. the way cole phelps would curl his lips and chin screamed "earnest guy from the 1930s-40s" to me. the fist fights and shoot outs are just like a gta game only a little less clunky but i'm still not a big fan of it. i played 007 bloodstone before this game and i liked the shooting and cover mechanics of that much better.
overall the games worth checking out. i might get it again when the dlc comes out.
oh yeah, i liked the game enough to check out some movies related to the 1930s-40s LA crime dramas and the black dalhia murder. i didn't much care for the black dahlia with josh hartnet but la confidential was great.
I didn't expect much when I found out that this game has no multiplayer or co op, but rockstar did it again. LA Noires single player campaign is solid. This game delivers stunning graphics and new facial animation that will bring in game characters to life like never before.
Just a few of negitives. Car steering is a quirky, when questioning some people it can get tough to read them, can not shoot while driving or roll, and finding clues can be tough.
