L.A. Noire (PlayStation 3)

 

What awaits Cole Phelps at the next crime scene? Will it be a couple of hopheads who overdosed on morphine and are now on the midnight train to nowhere? Or maybe a young lady whose dreams of Hollywood stardom were chewed up and spit out by the studios...

I have always been a fan of the film noire and all the detective movies that have came out over the years, so when I heard Rockstar was releasing L.A. Noire; a game that attempted to tackle this genre, I was very excited like many people. After seeing...

In the pantheon of game publishing gods, Rockstar Games is not only among them, but now sits incontestably as top deity thanks to the Grand Theft Auto maker's latest opus, L.A. Noire.

As the company responsible for such globally domineering game franchises as Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, you might think that Rockstar Games was due for a dud. But you'd be wrong.

L.A. Noire Review

 

Everyone wants to be a gangster. There's just something about walking around in a 3-piece pinstripe suit with a Tommy Gun robbing banks and being public enemy number one.

Amazing visuals ; Fantastic acting and dialog ; Facial animations are phenomenal ; Compelling story ; Great set pieces

Controls can become wonky ; Street crimes out of the way ; Some dialog responses feel unnatural

Everyone wants to be a gangster. There’s just something about walking around in a 3-piece pinstripe suit with a Tommy Gun robbing banks and being public enemy number one. Video games have put you in control of mobsters before. Now, Rockstar Games and...

A game puts players in the middle of a shadow-drenched, post-War Los Angeles.

There are some hiccups here: The conversation options of Truth and Doubt might more accurately be described as Good Cop and Bad Cop, and anyone expecting one of Rockstar’s big, well-populated sandboxes might be disappointed to find more of a desert....

LA Noire Review: The Pulp Detective Videogame We've All Been Waiting For

 

It's been a cold, rainy week in Philly and detective Luke Brown hasn't had a case in weeks. That all changed when Rockstar Games came into his office.

I had high hopes for LA Noire. The genre fan in me is thrilled with everything Team Bondi and Rockstar were able to accomplish with this game. Right now there are millions of people playing this game who will be introduced to pulp detectives and femme...

Blurs the line between video game and CG movie with a strong narrative, spot-on voice acting, and cinematic presentation.

L.A. Noire is almost everything I hoped it would be, and very little of what I thought it was. Judging by trailers and gameplay footage alone,I expected it to be a Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney game wrapped within Grand Theft Auto IV's game engine, with...

Stick with this one, kid.

Well-constructed linear adventure; amazing facial animation tech fused with some superb voice-acting

Success is usually the only option

In some ways, this is a weird game for Rockstar. It's a guided experience that casts you as an underdog hero, which practically paints it as a full-mirror image of the Grand Theft Auto games. It's good to see the company broaden its horizons more and...

Rockstar Games takes the side of the good guys in its risky new police procedural.
