I was truly amazed at the definition and detail of L.A. Noire! It definitely has the visual appeal and authenticity that most games haven't even touched yet. I am not the biggest fan of extreme open-world games, but enjoy them because there is so much to do. L.A. Noire didn't disappoint on that front but I was kind of upset of how it became boring at some moments in the game. It wasn't a blazing action game or shooting every second, but enjoyed solving the crimes and interrogations were hard for me. However, it is a real great game for anyone who wants to slow things down and check out the entirety of the game, I didn't even try to find the golden reel canisters.
The controls were easy to learn and the dialogue was clear and humurous at times. Enjoyed the details of the crimes and how each character had their own unique part & past in the story. It's quite a trip to see the different facial expressions when talking or looking at people, nice use of technology. I must say I enjoyed playing through the story, but couldn't really push myself to going around and finding the hidden items and unlocking all the cars. Anyone with some time on their hands should check this out, wouldn't be a bad idea.
By that I mean the same way Avatar revolutionized 3D LA Noire has done the same for facial expressions in video games. No other game has come even close to what Rockstar did in this area. I played the Infamous 2 demo and it was amazing to see the difference and how far ahead LA Noire was in that area.
Besides that the game feels a bit empty as far as things to do. You get called in for street crimes as you go from case to case, but besides that nothing else. Yes I looked for a few hidden cars, skipped the golden reels so after that nothing else.
I think its a must play to see how improved the graphics are in games and the story line was good as well so why not give a shot.
