I bought this game when it was on special at 5$ and honestly i don't why i waited this long to buy the game, its well worth the asking price of 20$.
Game runs great, I had no problem whatsoever installing and playing it, btw here are my pc's specs Win7, I5 760, 8GB Ram, 2x Gtx 460 1GB in sli (but it only uses one) and evga P55 mobo.
Although it share some similarity with mafia 2 and GTA (open world city, take any car you want etc..) its an another type of game completely, each part of the game are unique case to solve, you have to find clues and then interrogate witness and suspect, the facial animation are the best i've seen in any game.
Theres also some minor sidequest you can do to increase your exp to gain some ranks.
I'm now 9hrs into the game and in my stats it says i've done something like 42% of the game.
Anyway i'd recommend it to anyone who likes old detective movies and or books.

I hope that the support tech will read this because they havent been helping with my questions on how to get this to run. i am sure it is a great game but nothing i can do will make this game run. i even called rockstar support and they said that everything should be working well and that it is the gamefly launcher that is not working. i got a great deal on a supposidly great game! i just hope this issue gets resolved soon.
It apparently installs just fine, but it simply doesn't launch. You can see the LANoire.exe process in the task manager sucking up CPU cycles but that's all it does. I've tried every fix available and an hour or two worth of random stabs in the dark but nothing has worked. I just got ripped off, I fear.
First off, previous reviews have shown that the game had difficulty installing. Upon a recent update, apparently gamefly has recognized the outcry of missing files/patches and now recent downloads from their beta client have been successful in installing.
For those who have purchased the game earlier with no success of installing, uninstall and delete all LA Noire files from your PC (even from C:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\GameFly\downloads\60648611). This will allow gamefly client to realize you need to download the files again from them. And from this, just install the game like any other.
As for the game, I've been playing it non-stop! Great story! Easy to get into gameplay! and the graphics are amazing! If you're wondering how smooth it is on your PC compared to GTA4, it's much smoother. To this day, GTA4 is still sluggish on my PC, but I can run LA Noire at 60FPS on quality settings! Don't pass this game up! I purchased this game for $5 during the summer sale! This is well worth the asking price and then some!
Please don't let the previous reviews of "not being able to install the game" be a deterrent from a great game!
