A neat concept, but it gets old fast

At first, I found this game's more cerebral, less action-packed approach to crime-fighting refreshing. It was a nice change from Rockstar's other offerings like Grand Theft Auto and "Red Dead Redemption". The gameplay soon became tedious and repetitive, however, as I found myself doing the same thing over and over again. In solving cases, you continuously follow the same pattern of events - check the crime scene, interrogate somebody, chase a suspect - and most of the cases don't even differ greatly from each other, as you spend most of the game stalking a single killer with a single, unchanging M.O. By the time the main story campaign was concluded, I was more than ready to send "L.A. Noire" back to Gamefly.

One of the best games I have ever played... hand down! I've played literally thousands of games and this would be in the category that I will remember forever for all the right reasons. Now, for people not familiar with this game. It is a Rockstar game, but it is NOT like GTA. It is a small open-world, with only certain parts being available. You are detective and are forced to actually be a detective and go to your cases and complete them. There really isn't much room to do anything else. You are a good cop, and cannot blow cars up, or kill masses of people without being penalized. The graphics are superb, the sound is great, the lasting appeal is extremely high, and the period piece game is one of the ages.

Great move for ROCKSTAR

Before this game was announced, all of what ROCKSTAR was getting out was pure GTA games. And every game after GTA IV was a step down. L.A. NOIRE was and still is a good step forward for ROCKSTAR. This game has a good story line, good game play, and good graphics. Perhaps the same kind of graphics as GTA V.
