As an AVID gamer I was very impressed with this title from Rockstar. Normally my reviews of Rockstar games are not that great, ie. GTA Series but they have really turned around their games with Red Dead Redemption and L.A. Noire.
Game play is solid and the story is very well written. The most amazing thing about this game is the facial recognition and movement. The capture technology used is outstanding and the features are spot on. Trying to tell if someone is lying or not really depends on your ability to watch their face and not just listen to their words and had they not been able to capture the faces and movement like they have in this game, you couldn't really play this game.
The only couple of cons I have for this are the loose controls while driving, it's very sensitive and a little hard to control sometimes while in a chase, along with cars not moving out of the way when they hear a siren coming up behind them. Also the camera angles can be a little off at times, but nothing that really hinders the game.
All in all this is a very solid game and with the DLC that is coming available for it just extends the amazing gameplay.
remember the hobo in one of the homicide cases we was my favorite villian in the entire game here is a quote, 'lets see if u can prove the lakey". that gave me copgasims it was so cool i definitly rate this game a 10/10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
This game takes place during the 1940's. The clothes, dialogue, cars and buildings are spot on. It took me longer than expected to beat the game. Some of the cases were pretty short while others took a bit of time to complete. The story is freaking awesome - I won't spoil it but there are several surprises in store for you. I'd recommend getting the strategy guide. The side missions were a nice distraction from the main case or story missions. They were all pretty short too. Trophy hunters beware --- getting all 95 vehicles is a pain - I got 90 out of 95. You don't know what kind of car you get in unless its a car you haven't been in before. It doesn't tell you what kind of car you riding in like other games do. And I didn't see one gold reel during my week long play through. You definitely need a strategy guide to get all of them too. Getting the newspapers were easy since you get them throughout the main cases. Great game overall!
