L.A. Noire was a fantastic game that had a Heavy Rain feel to it's storyline and a GTA feel to it's gameplay. Very well put together graphic and story wised. However some points of the game feel more like a chore than a game. For example, clue magic doesn't seem to work unless you're directly on top of the object which can be confusing due to the third person camera view. And in the last session of the BD killer you're left to decypher clues to find the next location of the killer's tracks. The problem here is that If you haven't found the key locations earlier in the game you are left waiting for your character to murmur where to go next. All flaws set aside this was a well put together game and it gets an 8 in my vote.

This is a beautiful looking game. The acting and voice overs were not cheesy like most other games and were able to fit well with the flow. I did notice some of the frame rates getting choppy at some points of the game but it was not a huge deal for me and also at some points it took a bit for the game to register when i would choose an option during the interrogations ( not a huge deal but a little noticeable). The only thing i can say that i didn't like about the game was nearing the end it started to feel very repetitive. All and all it was a really good game, very different compared to all the game genres that are out there now but still really good. I gave it an 8 out of 10

Great game, looks great plays great its super fun at first. Game length is just enough to keep you from getting super bored, i think i beat the game in like 15 hours or so. Then i did all the extra's for the rest of the achievements ended up getting 1000gs in this game took about id say 25 hours or so, between finding all the cars 95 different ones, finding the golden reels (50) and then 5 star'ing every case.

This games different that's what it has going for it, the thing is every case almost feels like the last.. sure its a different case with different people and such and it leaves you guessing who did what. But you basically do the exact same thing (search for clues, interrogate someone, make a choice on who did it). Its fresh and fun for the first 2 disc's (which i love how they did 3 disc's it seems like they could of crammed this game all onto one disc but then it wouldn't of been as detailed etc, i think all developers should do this put as much detail into a game even if it makes it more than one disc) but by time i got to the 3rd disc i found myself saying wow this is starting to get repetitive. Great game tho wonderful change from the normal rpg/fps games.
