This is one of the better games I have ever played period. It starts good and only gets better. Although I did feel the highlight of the game was when you worked Homicide which actually happens in the middle of the game.
There are some items that keep it from being 10 for me however. Parts of the game do get slightly repetitive (but that is to be expected). My main frustration was that in cases where you have multiple suspects you can only get 5 stars by arresting a certain person and that is even if they have less evidence against them. In the end sometimes it is irrelevant if you arrest the correct person as long as you guess the one your superior wants you to charge with the crime you will be fine.
Decent story to the game overall, although nothing great. But an entertaining 20 or so hours of gameplay.

i am going to state the positives and negatives PRO'S 1.THE GAME IS A GOOD 13 HOURS IF YOU TRY TO GET 5 STARS ON ALL CASES 2.THE GAME IS REALLY WELL DONE THE GRAPHICS ARE SUPERB BUT ONLY GOES TO 720P 3.VERY GOOD FACIAL ANIMATIONS THAT LOOK LIKE REAL PEOPLE 4.A VERY LARGE MAP PERFECT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO EXPLORE
CON'S 1.THE GAME HAS ONE OF THE MORE ANYOUING TROPHY DRIVE EVERY CAR IN THE GAME CAN TAKE YOU UP TO 1 HOUR JUST TO FIND ALL THE CARS 2.SOME ANIMATIONS LOOK TO UNREAL DISPITE THE FACIAL ANIMATIONS LIKE YOU CANT SWIM AND YOU CANT JUMP OR JUMP OUT OF A CAR 3.THE GAME HAS W VERY HIGH CHANCE OF FREEZING ON YOU BUT I THINK THEY PATCHED THAT 4. THE STORY ITS A GOOD STORY BUT THE ENDING WILL LEAVE YOU SCREAMING AND SAYING OH MY GOD WHY DID IT HAPPEN IF YOU WANT SPOILERS LOOK BELOW BUT JUST TO WARN YOU.
THE GAME IS A NICE GAME TO THE R STAR GAMES BUT THE FREEZING AND LIMITED ACTIONS I GIVE IT A 8 OH AND SPOILER

For what this game was it was a great game but until i read the gamefly descrition i thought it was a mobster game but that wasn't that big of a dissapointment. The biggest dissapointment was that on all other rockstar games you could do whatever you wanted, pull out your gun anywhere, kill people, steal cars, get in fights, do mini games, but this was not true for L.A. Noire. You can still take vehicles from peds but you do not steal them you use your badge to have them get out of there vehicles so this game was a major dissapointment from what i was expecting and from what Rockstar normally makes.
