Über das Spiel

L.A. Noire ist eine interaktive Detektiv-Geschichte, angesiedelt während der klassischen Noir-Periode der späten 40er Jahre.

L.A. Noire verbindet Action, Ermittlungen und anspruchsvolles Storytelling und zieht den Spieler hinein in einen dramatischen Fall um die Aufklärung einer Serie von brutalen Morden. Angesiedelt in einem perfekt nachempfundenen Los Angeles aus einer Zeit vor den Freeways wird L.A. Noire vor dem Hintergrund von Korruption, Drogen und Jazz Film und Videospiel auf außergewöhnliche Weise vermischen.

Mitten im Nachkriegs-Boom des goldenen Zeitalters Hollywoods befindet sich der LAPD Detective Cole Phelps, der kopfüber in eine Stadt geworfen wurde, die in ihrem eigenen Erfolg ertrinkt. Korruption ist Alltag, der Drogenhandel boomt und die Mordrate ist auf einem nie da gewesenen Höhepunkt. In seinem Kampf um Aufstieg und Gerechtigkeit muss Phelps die Wahrheit herausfinden, die hinter einer Serie von Brandanschlägen, Erpressungen, Verschwörungen und brutalen Morden steckt, und dabei gegen die Unterwelt von L.A. und sogar Mitglieder der eigenen Polizei-Station kämpfen, um ein Geheimnis zu enthüllen, das die Stadt in ihrem verrotteten Kern zusammenbrechen lassen könnte.

Mit einer bahnbrechenden neuen Animationstechnologie, die jede Nuance der Gesichtsbewegungen der Schauspieler in erstaunlicher Detailgenauigkeit erfasst, ist L.A. Noire ein Krimi-Thriller, der atemberaubende Action mit echter Detektivarbeit vermischt, um ein noch nie dagewesenes, interaktives Spielerlebnis zu liefern. Suchen Sie nach Hinweisen, jagen Sie Verdächtige und verhören Sie Zeugen, während Sie versuchen, die Wahrheit in einer Stadt zu finden, in der jeder etwas zu verbergen hat.

I've tried all of the 'Fixes' so the game can launch, nothing worked.
I Still can't launch this game, and it's really annoying me, because I was really excited to play this
Edit: not sure what exactly did it, because I tried pretty much all the fixes, but after restarting my PC it works

Interesting game. Too bad it barely functions on Windows 10.

If you really do want to try it, don't launch it through steam. Find the games file and run the application as administrator. (This apparently has been an issue since 2016, DO NOT EXPECT THIS TO IMPROVE OR BE FIXED)

Than enjoy being forced to make a Rockstar Social account. Bonus points if it tells you that your email address already exists and you can't use it... For whatever reasons.

Honestly, I can appreciate people liked this game and it may be of some value. But the optimization hasn't aged well. Any game that forces so many technical failures before one can actually play it fully automatically gets a shit rating from me. If you don't want a headache from having to figure out how to actually run the game... Save your money for something else

Thoughts after my second playthrough:

I'm still conserned that this is defenetly one of the TOP3 games Rockstar's ever made.
No doubt that we need a sequel. This game is really deep, i really suggest playing it at least twice while on the second playthrough you can concentrate on the dialogs and focus on all the small details.

The soundtrack is just brilliant.
The characters are just perfect.

- I suggest using Widescreen fixer if you want to play this game on 60fps.
- If the game doesnt starts, exit steam and run steam as administrator.
- If you are not a native speaker always have subtitles on.

______________________________________________________________

Overall i think this game is a must buy. Even if its from 2011, you will still defenetly enjoy it.
Best detective/noir game that i've ever played.


Defenetly recommended 10/10

THE PROS
- The sound effects and music perfectly fit the 1940s theme of the game.
- Facial motion capture.
- Once reaching the rank of detective, the game encourages you to use your own initiative and figure the case out for yourself. This helps in making you feel like an actual detective, rather than someone just playing as one.
- Giving you a partner like Bekowsky for your first taste as a detective was a good choice. Bekowsky is the most likable partner you'll get until you reach the Arson cases so he really helps draw in the player's interest at the beginning.
- The Quarter Moon Murders case is one of the most intense and immersive missions in any Rockstar release.
- All of the Vice and Arson cases were compelling which was convenient since promotions went from feeling refreshing to repetitive by this point in the game.
- Your time in the Arson department with your partner Biggs and war comrade Kelso is a reminder that not all great men are always in the spotlight and not all great employees are successful in the end.

THE CONS
- While the facial motion capture was immersive and helped with questioning, the faces just looked ridiculous at times.
- Object inspection can be awkward when trying to find the right angle.
- Balancing on beams is not as responsive as it could be.
- Civilians literally see Cole driving towards them at high speeds in pursuit of a suspect and they just run straight into the car... this is beyond annoying if you're trying to get 5 star ratings. You're basically having to pick between sucking it up or quitting out and reloading your last save for the 5 star.
- While I enjoyed the Arson cases, at times I felt like this portion of the story was being rushed to the finish line. This feeling was particularly strong during the last mission when Cole gets carried away by the current, the scene didn't feel authentic at all; it looked forced.

With the direction of Team Bondi, Rockstar successfully managed to create an immersive and mature neo-noir detective game that by the end of the story has the player thinking about power dynamics and human behaviour.

I'd highly recommend L.A. Noire if you enjoyed the likes of any of the following: Murdered: Soul Suspect, Heavy Rain, The Sinking City or The Witcher 3.

I have nothing but launch problems with this game since I bought it for my windows 10 PC. I've had to uninstall it, reinstall it, copy and drag files around, consult youtube, sign into Rockstar's retarded ass Social Club to play OFFLINE!!! Nothing but problems there. Hey Rockstar, I bought this game...I own it, mf'ers!!!
I'm 2 seconds from getting my money back. I'm not social. In fact I hope you all die in this pandemic to make room on the freeways. So, as a crumudgeony old F%$K that just wants to play a game, I can not recommend this game.

Rant:
A very interesting game. Comes with full VA but sometimes the dialogue feels a bit uncalled for (as in, Phelps suddenly acts very aggressive even though previous exchange was relatively smooth lol). I get what they are going for with the game mechanics, but it's not very... convincing. It might have been better if they showed partial dialogue of what Phelp was going to say instead.
Aside from the launch issue (had to run Steam as admin) and FPS issue (adjustable if you do some googling), it's a solid game definitely worth the money. Game control is pretty responsive and controller-friendly. Just had to get used to some weird physics if manually forcing the game to 60 FPS.
Story is decent. The ending feels a bit rushed. I like how there are idle dialogues. Makes the world feels less stiff.

Recommend to:
- People who have time to spare
- People who like mystery type story game

As of this review there is no way I was able to get this game to work with windows 10 (4 solutions were tried including reg edits). It seems that there is an authentication between the game and rockstar social club that is broken. The game hangs right after splash screen and will not proceed. Only buy this game if your idea of fun is struggling with software.

[h1]L.A. Noire[/h1]

[table]
GenreDetective/Noir[/tr]
CampaignYes[/tr]
Game length21h - 41h[/tr]
Difficulty modesN/A[/tr]

- LA Noire is one of those unique experiences that show up once in a decade, redefining the genre, the way in which games are viewed by the general public, and creating a rich and emotionally strong background for the story itself. You play as Detective Cole Phelps, a war hero who is now working for the LAPD in a quest to serve justice and help those in need. The game starts with Phelps as a simple uniformed patrolman, but as you work your way up the cases you'll get promoted to desks like Homicide, Arson, Traffic, or Vice, leading to more complex cases and intriguing stories. The main story is the one of Cole Phelps, which is tied to the events from the war, as the game will do a decent job reminding you from time to time using flashbacks that in the end tie together with the present events to create an amazing and emotionally powerful storyline.

[h1]Story[/h1]
Apart from the main story, each case that you get involved in has its own story that's a pleasure to follow as finding the one responsible for the murder of innocent people or the distribution of morphine is totally up to you and your detective skills. Crime scenes are recreated into the game in a believable and realistic way, making each clue that you find at the scene important in solving the mystery as you'll often need proof to accuse someone or make them testify and help you solve the case.
  • The city of Los Angeles is beautifully recreated to the smallest detail, providing a full-sized version of the city as it was in 1947, with rich environments and key landmarks that will make you feel as you were in LA for real. From the guns to the characters and the stories, this smells like 1947 from miles away, integrating you into that scenery from the first moments you step into the game and constantly keeping you there with the ingenuity and drama of each case that is brought to you.
  • Starting with your partners from each desk that you'll be reassigned to where characters like Roy or Galloway steal the show with their unique personalities that come alive into the game due to the unbelievable realism and ending with less important characters like each of the suspects in your case or even the victims, all of the characters have their exact place in LA Noire, and it has never felt so real. Apart from the main story which includes over 20 different cases, there are also 40 different secondary missions that come presented as emergency calls as you'll be informed about them via the police channel, allowing you to set them as your new destination and get away from the cases routine for a while. LA Noire tells so many stories that it's hard even to remember them all, starting with each case or quick event that usually has suspects and victims and ending with stories like Cole's war conflicts or the stories in the newspapers that are meant to explain some of the events from the main story a little further.

[h1]Gameplay[/h1]
LA Noire's is unique, as it gives you full control over the outcome of dialogue and of the case itself; using motion capture technology, characters have realistic facial expressions, allowing you to read those expressions and see if they're telling the truth, having doubts or lying according to the tension from their faces. A stressed character from the pressure of lying to a policeman will be visible and detectable if you train your eye, while a character telling the truth will usually be calm and straight forward when answering a question. This mechanic opens up a new gate to gameplay, as each deduction will have an outcome in the case since the statement of a character can be used as a clue to find another, a testimony to put a suspect in jail or even as a proof against that same character.
  • The other unique thing that makes LA Noire a believable detective experience is the clue searching, as most of the locations you visit will have a certain number of clues that you can discover, helping you solve the case easier or get to a new location or another person; All of the information regarding the case can be accessed from Cole's notebook, displaying your information about suspects, locations and clues that you find at any time using the Back button.
  • Driving is another important factor of LA Noire, as you'll need a car to travel from a location to another of the city, especially since the entire city is recreated in the game, but if you're not the driving type you can make your partner drive for you instead.

[h1]Graphics[/h1]
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8j1TEwgqCY] L.A. Noire - PC vs PS4 Graphics Comparison [/url]
Without doubt, the motion capture technology is the main star in here, making facial animations feel closer to reality than ever before and opening up new doors for gameplay possibilities that aren't just a lie or an attempt for such a feature, but an indeed working and deductible truth or lie situation using only the facial animations and expressions of the characters, just as the real detectives do in real life. Each character was captured using a different person in real life so everyone in the game looks unique, making each case an amazing experience that will stay with you for weeks to come.
  • The 1947 city of LA was created in full scale, bringing even the smallest roads and alleys into the game for you to explore and opening up amazing possibilities for each case to unfold as you'll travel all across the city through the story. The car damage effects are astonishing and realistic, making driving safely an important part of the LAPD cop, as apart from the moral duty of protecting the property, a damaged car will function less efficiently and each penny that you cost the state will be deducted from you at the end of the case, resulting in a lower number of stars.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4SETdYSIlc] Characters and Voice Actors - L.A. Noire [/url]
The dialogue is excellent and it's meant to provide you with extra details about the characters, as well as give you a couple of hints as to where to go next and help you get started. The sound effects are astonishing, especially those musical noises that play an important role in finding clues as they will direct you towards each clue using different tonalities and sounds.

My personal rating is

[h1]Conclusion[/h1]
- LA Noire is without a doubt an experience worth having, as you have never played anything like it before; there isn't much to do after the main story is over, but the road there is simply a blast, presenting you with dozens of different stories told through all of Phelps' actions, an unique gameplay experience that is only possible using the game's motion capture technology and a cast of characters that will remain with you for years, as their personalities managed to shine even in the lowest moment of the game and bring a new wave of excitement to the player.

[h1]struggle with L.A. Noire, because at times I love it, yet it has some notable flaws. As a noir fan, I find moments that really get me grinning. There are certain cases that draw me in and side characters who eat up the scene. But it never adds up - amazing pieces that don't quite amount to an incredible game. At the same time, no one's ever played a game like this before. And unless there's a sequel, I doubt anyone will again for some time. Credit Rockstar for taking a huge risk, for succeeding in many areas, and for offering something fresh and different.

L.A. Noire may not reach the emotional heights of any game of the Mafia- or Grand Theft Auto-Franchise, but it's something everyone must try out. It reaches high and almost succeeds as a brilliant new type of video game narrative.

This game is more detective than i thought. Every case is every curtain which i have to go deep inside the back stage. In this era of the game released, i can't find other games has a facial motion is better than this. The facial motion make a huge advantage for you to find who really a liar is. The game play is truly series action of detective and loop over and over: take the case, get information, interrogation the suspector, clear the clue and conclude the case. You can see the whole process of taking the case. The action thing in game isn't much good. Weapon wheel is normally seen in every R* game.

This game is an absolute steal on sale. So much bang for your buck! It is capped at 30 fps which is a bummer but doesn't actually hinder my own personal gameplay experience which, so far, has been incredibly enjoyable. While the graphics appear quite dated now for a game released in 2011 the attention to detail in the city of Los Angeles, set in 1947, shines at every corner. I am continuously amazed when discovering new, real-life inspired landmarks, the various decorated interiors and exteriors scattered throughout the world, the many different vehicles—and so much more. When playing this on a 1080p screen I do recommend increasing the in-game resolution beyond that to reduce the aliasing which is far too jarring for my taste with nothing but the game's AA. I personally use Nvidia's DSR set to 4x supersampling. There is of course also the option to fiddle with external AA solutions through ReShade etc.

As I mentioned I have thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay thus far from looking for clues, straight to the (many!) interrogations, chasing suspects on foot or by car—and ultimately ending up in a big shootout every once in a while. There are also various collectibles for you to hunt down and collect when roaming around the city—including unique, hidden cars. Speaking of cars, this game features a LOT of driving from A to B (take the GTA series for reference) so that's something to be aware of.

As for the story, I am currently nearing the halfway mark and while the gameplay and story structure might seem repetitive, every new case continues to feel refreshing and intriguing in its very own way. The world is filled with fascinating stories, mysteries and characters. Some you'll love, some you'll despise, but they all manage piquing your interest nonetheless. Each gameplay session has so far ended with excitement and a sense of accomplishment, big or small! Carefully seeking out and inspecting all clues and solving cases with as few mistakes as possible, or even perfectly, is very satisfying.

Unfortunately there IS a downside to these otherwise well-crafted gameplay interrogations with suspects and victims which can lead to pretty frustrating moments. The game features 3 options for you to choose from during interrogations: Truth, Doubt and Lie. The problem here, however, is the at times completely mismatched interpretation of what YOU are trying to convey using either one of these options and how that ends up TRANSLATING into the game. ''Doubt'' is the most unpredictable option of all. You might select it in order to try and get more information out of the person you're questioning when they are clearly withholding part of the truth while stating what they just told you is all they know. You're therefore doubting that is all there is to it, but do not yet know what exactly it is they are keeping from you. You can't select ''lie'' to accuse them of lying, because you do not possess said evidence yet. ''Truth'' doesn't seem right either, because you already know they are not being 100% truthful with you. ''Doubt'' seems to be the only logical option, right? Sadly, the term ''doubt'' in these cases does not mildly or even forcefully express doubt as you intended but ends up with the protagonist trying to accuse said person of something completely different, often far-fetched, and even in an agressive and threatening manner. This then counts as a mistake. It can be very misleading. Similar scenarios apply to ''truth'' and ''lie'' as well, but ''doubt'' undoubtedly takes the throne.

This has thus far been my only real issue with the game since I personally refrain from using guides. If you do choose to use guides, however, this should (thankfully!) not be an issue for you.

For now I am looking forward to seeing where the story ends up taking me. I will update this review if I've got more to add upon finishing the game.

My first time playing L.A. Noire didn't last long because I had just gotten a 144hz monitor. Little did I realize back then, a low frame rate would actually create a cinematic quality to this game. It is through this experience that memorable stories are told through complex characters and locations. Throughout my return to this city, I was constantly surprised by the visuals and sounds of 1947. I often found myself driving with the flow of traffic, obeying the laws of the road just so I could listen to the radio, hear the comments of nearby pedestrians, and appreciate all the vintage cars. The attention to detail combined with the freedoms of playing detective are very immersive. At first, understanding how to conduct perfect interrogations isn't clear and the controls for shootouts can be unsettling. But there is plenty of time to learn throughout the game's 24+ hour campaign. For the hardcore, there is an extensive statistic and achievement tracking system that adds plenty of replay value beyond normal play. If you are looking to play a game that will test your ability to piece together clues and solve crimes, L.A. Noire delivers and will surprise you. Game on.

L.A Noire need's another game in a similar style just to show how good of a job Rockstar did with this title. The Storyline, characters and collectibles scattered throughout this great game in it's open world 'gta like feel' made it a unique experience. If you haven't played it yet i'd definitely recommend it.

DO NOT BUY! I used to be able to play this game but for some reason it doesn't work now. There's currently no fixes as far as I know

I tried
-Administrator mode
-Compatibility mode
-Registry fixes
-Opting out of betas
-Verifying game caches
-Re-installing (Many times)
-Updating DirectX and other needed software
-Manually re-installing Rockstar Social Club

R* is scummy for allowing this game to still be sold when many people can't play it on one of the most common OS, and Steam is scummy for not deleting this game off of Steam to prevent anyone from buying a game that doesn't work

Though I have not played any Sherlock Holmes games, however this is one of the best detective game to me. This is Team Bondi's first and last game and yeah, they nailed it. Here are some pros and cons -

[h1]Pros :[/h1]
  • The story, Damn....Based on some real life stories.
  • 1947 America....I am always fascinated by the golden age of America....I wish I were there.
  • Motion Capture...Damn..You will be surprised seeing suspect's expression when they are lying.
  • The Cars. I am not a car enthusiast but all those classic cars give me chills
  • The game texture was great
  • 40 Street Crimes aka side missions.....Each of them is too short but fun
  • Press 2 to 'Doubt'....lol
  • So Many clues....You need them to interrogate people
  • You need high patience. If you are an adult but you don't have the patience, this is not for you.
  • Bang for buck....Get this on a sale


[h1]Cons : [/h1]
  • Fu**ing social club. I just hate this crap.
  • You may not load your save if you are not logged in to the social crap. I had to face some issues.
  • Unoptimized...You may not even open the game in your high rig. There is a simple way for 1st timers to open the game.
  • I had to face several crashes...Damn
  • Several Glitches
  • Capped at 30 fps. If you manage to uncap, then some missions will break AFAIK.
  • The Graphics is not that good compared to GTA 4 though the texture was great.
  • Patience. Yes it's a pro as well as a con.
  • PS4 & XBOXone has remaster but PC doesn't...WTF...

That's all I can remember...

My Verdict - 8.5/10

I really wish I could have been there at the Golden Age...The Hollywood, the pretty ladies having those hairstyles, Damn....not the girls of this age....xD.......Thank you for your time...Hope you are well in this pandemic...

Everything about this game is so great, even the title, an excellent experience
It's a masterpiece in my opinion and also underrated game as a lot of people say

Great story, playing as Cole Phelps in various departments of LAPD throughout the entire story

Great Gameplay
Finding clues, (better with controller with the vibration on)
Interrogating suspects (funny facial expressions)
You can drive or you can let your partner drive and skip the ride

Graphics are good considering it's an old game (best played @4k)

Great music i loved it, even the voice acting is good, Dialogues are cool

I really wish for a sequel as good as this game
There's a lot i'd like to say about this game but i'm a lazy person
For those who can't run, it's really simple install the direct-x for this game and run it as admin

If you're having trouble getting past the La Noire launcher; quit steam and run it as administrator. Thats all you should need to do and after that you're good. Because I'd hate for someone to not be able to play this absolute masterpiece of a crime drama. The game still holds up almost 10 years later. Animations, voice acting, story, and puzzles are still top notch even though the driving and shooting mechanics are functional at best.

I really wanted to try this game 'cause it is a masterpiece as I've been told, but the PC port is atrocious, in fact, even GTA IV port at launch worked better than this one.
It crashes if I use DX11 and if I don't execute Steam as admin. It crashes every time I close it, runs at 30fps and if I use the .ini patch to make it work at 60fps I get frame drops (which makes it unplayable), and this is why I'm gonna refund.

Waste of time and money. Better pirate it, it's better than giving rockstar money for something that barely works.

I managed to make the game work for a while, I liked it a lot, but couldn't ever finish it. I can't recommend something you wont be able to even launch, u'll have to do research on how to fix it and that research most likely gonna sen u to a shady website to download stuff u probably don't know anything about. This problem has been in this game for a long while now, for them to not fixing it and just letting be on sale and even making discounts on it from my perspective looks like a intended scam, because this problem has been going on for while now and I doubt that rock start don't know about it.

GET THE WIDESCREEN FIXER (https://www.wsgf.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=14859) OR YOU WILL BE FORCED TO PLAY THE GAME AT 24fps !!!!!! Obviously the capped rate is unplayable. But 60fps makes a world of difference.

This game was built on the tears of the children of Team Bondi employees, who never got to see Mom or Dad for years on end due to toxic CEO Brendan McNamara's climate of fear and bullying.and eternal crunch culture.

So enjoy.

Another terrible PC port from Rockstar. Game is locked at 30 fps, you have to use cheat engine to unlock higher frame-rates, but I couldn't get it to work right on a 240 hz monitor. You have to run Steam as an adminstrator just to get the game to open. Reshade doesn't work, so nothing can be done about the terrible antialiasing. And there was some bug that caused my camera to spin around. This time I don't have the patience to fix the problems and just refunded it. They've had 9 years to fix the problems with this game, Rockstar doesn't deserve money for this.

Decent game. Good for someone who has an hour or two here and there time. Perhaps some week of break between sessions. Might not be perfect game for someone who plays a lot and looks for action packed crazy fun.

Game is relatively easy and mechanics become familiar quickly. Interrogations are most fun. Definitely a different, rather chill game. Perfect with a beer or a drink. Length is just spot on as well as further on it could become tedious.
Take your time, breathe in, immerse yourself to the atmosphere and enjoy as you're probably only going to play LA Noire once.

This is probably one of the best Detective Simulators available, alongside other of my favorites, Sam and Max in all their games.

A noir thriller set in Los Angeles which includes a lot of decisions and well, investigation.

Exploring the city of L.A. is great, just don't expect anything as involved as GTA.

The facial expressions of the characters are still some of the best, although Cole is an annoying protagonist who tends to react in a bipolar unexpected way, and is quite unlikeable, but that ruin your experience with the story.

This is really one of those games that everyone should play, especially if you like this type of game.

I love this game, it's a classic game to play. But It just doesn't launch anymore no matter what settings I put on the launcher. It's kind of silly how each game has their own banner and it's just really hyped up, then like half the old games just don't work. Like Fallout 3 for example. Wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

L.A. Noire is a detective game set in the late 1940s where you solve different type of cases, all while unravelling a conspiracy.

Story:

You play as Cole Phelps. Coming back from World War 2, he joins the police as an officer, but after solving a murder case, he gets promoted to Detective status and solves various cases for Traffic, Arson and Homicide desks.

Each case of the game acts as it's own story, while a larger story plays out over time, involving a conspiracy which you as Phelps tries to solve and not to mention the story of Phelps himself as he goes deeper into the underbelly of L.A. The story itself is really good and the writing is absolutely top notch, which is important cause you have to pay a ton of attention to dialogue to look for lies and inconsistent stories your suspects will tell you.

Most of the cases are well written, but I feel the overarching story is rather bland. It seems intriguing at first, but the final comes off as rushed with an ending that could be considered lazy by many. It just sort of ends, with many loose ends tied up quite loosely.

Graphics:

One thing the game is known for is it's facial motion capture tech, which was described as the most advanced at the time. I do admit a lot of the time the faces reach the uncanny valley territory, a lot of the faces look too real, but fake at the same time. It mostly shows during the meme worthy moments where people lie to you and start making facial expressions that make it seem like they are constipated instead of trying to lie to you.

The graphics themselves still hold up very well. The world looks great and there's a ton of detail put into it so it reflects L.A. in the 40s. There's a ton of vehicles that roam the streets and they all look great and there's tons of different locations you visit over your investigations. Not to mention going sight seeing L.A. landmarks which is a ton of fun to do, so if you find yourself wanting to explore there's definitely a ton of stuff to see.

Audio:

The music mimics the era really well, there's a ton of great tracks ranging from intense on foot or car chases, shootouts and quiet ambient tracks when you're walking around crime scenes looking for evidence. There's even a little jingle every time you find a major piece of evidence which is a cool audio cue to know you're on the right track.

The voice acting is also absolutely top notch. Every actor does an absolutely amazing job in portraying a wide range of emotions, most of them deliver the audio so clearly you can sometimes tell if a character is lying, just because of how a line is delivered by them. It's rare that a character will deliver a line poorly throwing you off, but these moments are so far and few between that it doesn't really become a problem.

Gameplay:

L.A. Noire is a combination of a third person cover shooter, open world sandbox and detective game. There's not many games (if any) that are just like it. After the LAPD section of the game where you learn the basics, the game throws you into the main desks where the actual games begin. At the start of each case, you get a brief explanation, drive to the crime scene and look around for evidence writing down everything you see to be able to use later.

Your investigations lead to other locations where you might encounter a suspect spotted at the crime scene, or someone that had a motive. When talking to people you ask them a question, you hear them out and then you can call out their lie, doubt their claim or agree that they tell the truth. Truth and Doubt you can claim without any evidence, but for lie you need a piece of evidence to prove that the person is lying to make them confess.

You learn early on, about facial expressions of the character, so for example if a character is lying they will never look at you or just glance at you, doubt will make them look around their environments and barely pay attention to you and truth they will look directly at you, without doing any of the former. This works fine for the most part, but a lot of the time it might be really hard to tell if a character is lying cause it might look like they are not looking anywhere making you feel they're telling the truth, but in reality they are trying to hide the truth. You really need to pay attention to every bit to the conversation to be able to spot the truth.

Usually when you're driving from location to location, you have quite a distance to go and since you're a cop sometimes dispatch will call you up and tell you to go to location to look into a crime happening and these are short 2 to 3 minute cases to break up the tedium of the longer cases you are usually doing.

The combat includes a combination of hand to hand combat and gun fights. The hand to hand combat in my opinion is just flat out bad. It's usually just punch, punch, punch until a guy falls down. It feels really tedious and honestly it's sometimes possible to avoid it, if you somehow get a suspect to stop earlier in a chase, but it's a rare thing to happen and you'll be fighting them. The gun combat is very barebones, but works fine enough, the guns control fine enough and the shooting feels decent, but it's not anything special.

Verdict:

L.A. Noire is unlike any detective game on the market and it's honestly quite the treat to play. Most of the cases are great and a ton of fun to figure out. Exploring L.A. in the 40s is also a treat and there's just a ton of stuff for you to do. For some the game might get boring since there's a small variety between cases. I've also heard some people having trouble running the game on their systems, but I didn't encounter any problems while playing. Overall L.A. Noire is a great game and if you want a great detective game, check it out.

Final Rating:
8.5/10

Pros:
+ Gameplay is incredibly unique
+ 40s L.A. is recreated amazingly well
+ Voice acting is top notch

Cons:
- Overarching story is rather bland
- Not much variety between major cases

Such a shame.

Before I criticise lets look at the positives of the game itself.

L.A Noire is a fantastic game, dont get me wrong. I played it previously on the xbox 360 and now on PC. It gives an alternative perspective from most games with the chance to play as Cole Phelps a war hero turned detective in the LAPD in the late 1940s. You climb your way up the ranks by solving cases that include evidence gathering at crime scenes, interrogations, car chases, foot chases and shoot outs. The game is open world which also allows you to assist the LAPD with standard police street crimes and calls. It is a fun game with decent graphics and a amazing facial animations and voice actors. If you have never played it you definitely have to.

HOWEVER, this port onto steam is in shocking condition. The game is filled with bugs and causes lots of crashes. Even with a high spec PC the frame rate is locked at 30fps and the rendering is just poor. This game was designed for consoles and no attempt was made to make it fit for Steam. You will spend more time fixing the game than playing it. As I enjoy L.A Noire it is sad to give a bad review but this version is just not fit for sale.

If you do wish to enjoy the game buy it on a console like it was designed for and actually enjoy it without constant frustration.

Or if you don't have a console or are just stubborn there are lots of topics in the community page to unlock the game allowing you to play in 60fps (albeit turning all cars into scenes from Tokyo drift as they lose control) as well as lots of help to get the game working

Sadly I cannot recommend this game on PC

Step into the 1940s as up and coming Detective Cole Phelps, as you investigate and solve crimes throughout the city of Los Angeles, while uncovering a bigger conspiracy going on in the city. Hope you’re ready to clean the streets of crime in L.A. Noire.

[h1]The Good[/h1]Good balance of gameplay and interesting cases.

L.A. Noire features some interesting variety for the main cases, ranging in Traffic, Murder, Drug Trafficking and Arson. All while having a developing story of something else going on in the streets of Los Angeles and around Phelps’ war buddies. The way it’s handled, I’m surprised they haven’t done a TV series with this, cause it can feel like you’re a part of one at times.

As far as gameplay goes, it has a good balance of investigations for clues, interrogations and the odd elements where you either chase down suspects or get into a shootout against a group of criminals. In a way, the variety keeps players on their toes, since it’s not always clear what to expect next while working on the cases.

[h1]The Bad[/h1]Some collectibles are not really worth going after.

There are a few items that you can find and collect during your investigations and drive-by. Finding all the different vehicles that you can drive is one that I liked the most, especially when you can find hidden vehicles that feel rewarding to drive with.

On the flip side, there are some collectibles that not only are hard to find, but don’t feel as rewarding. Those collectibles I’m referring to are the Golden Film Reels and Police Badges. As far as I know, there’s no rewards for collecting them all, besides giving you experience, but it’s easy to get experience and you cap at level 20, so unless you’re going for 100%, it’s not worth collecting them all.

[h1]The Ugly[/h1]Free Roam can get boring after a while.

In between cases or from the main menu, you can choose to go into Free Roam, which simply lets you roam the streets of Los Angeles. This is a good chance to get a glimpse of the city in the 1940s recreated as best as possible by the developers.

Now, this spectacle does wear out it’s welcome when you realize there’s nothing else to do in Free Roam. You’ll have the street cases available to do, but you can do those while doing other major cases. If there were any side activities that you could do, it might make Free Roam feel more useful.


Considering that this game was released 9 years ago, the game is still great to play and experience to this day. My negative sections are more mixed remarks than bad ones. If you want a different kind of story telling experience, with a focus on solving crimes, pick this game up and enjoy it.

L.A. Noire | ★★★★☆

If you're looking to this game thinking you would get a lot of action oriented gun fight like Max Payne and some ridiculous crime plot twist like Sherlock Holmes then you're into it wrong. Fairly, parts of what I examples where still there. It just doesn't go over the top. The approach tried to be slow & realistic as possible as it could. Hence, this might be the most true to life like gameplay Rockstar produced hardly ahead of Red Dead.

A follow up felt slim to none. Mostly like because how this kind of genre's audience is not the mainstream as what usually Rockstar aiming to. Added to that were the production cost and the hellwork happened at the Australian studio's Team Bondi.

[h1]ɢʀᴀᴘʜɪᴄs:[/h1]
Hearing the title L.A. Noire would first remind you the advance features that used in the game called motion scanned that give NPC's expression to make your interview feel as natural within reach. And yes, It is really advance. I've never encountered so much emotion from an NPC's that you'll never see again for the rest of the game.

I can't really tell how's the city is because driving is mainly optional other than chase scene. Which led this to be the most forgettable open world Rockstar made for me. However, talking about Interior is a different thing, You can just feel the classical fashioned design of each structure. Also, those shoe footsteps on different kind of floor is just pleasing noise to my ear.

Just wanted to pointed out that there's a lot of Mad Men cameo's here including the protagonist. Also Micah from RDR2 was here.

Also last thing but not the least, Starting the game would introduced you to a locked 30FPS, There's a fix here on PCGamingWiki called Widescreen fixed. A program that let you unlocked more than 30 frames per second and other things. Just follow the instruction and you are ready to go.

[h1]ɢᴀᴍᴇᴘʟᴀʏ:[/h1]
The game mainly revolve a lot on the Interrogation part and finding clues which helps you connect the leads and nails the right question. It looks complicated at the start, But the things is, The choices Doubt and Lie is just the same. Picking Doubt is just another form of telling them they're lying, but without you having proof.

I recommend that you set the music cue on setting where it will stop once the clues are all found. I've been scattering around the crime scene thinking I missed something half way through the game, until I noticed that I got all the clues and the music just automatically won't turn off in the settings. First person mode could also help a lot, but I guess they straight ahead skip that and just release the VR version.

Driving is a meh. I don't know if they just tried to be true to what the handle of cars at the 40's but it was horrible. Luckily, you have a partner who could also be your designated driver. Which when the game introduced me that, It just became the Frogwares Sherlock Holmes where your only option is going places to places by fast traveling.

The realistic body count really cutoff my inner John Wick bloodlust on a gunfight. I think that's why they put the Street Crimes so the game could recover for all that short fight you have on the main case. There's nothing really to do in the world other than finding some landmarks, vehicles and some few collectibles.

[h1]sᴛᴏʀʏ:[/h1]
Throughout the story, You'll been put to a four different desk, which let you have an investigative work on different kind of crimes. Most of it is connected to those militant that joined the war just a few years taking the game place in. A second playthrough also could help clear things upon some confusing random details the story left behind. (I watched it in my case)

Working on Homicide is one of my favorite detective work out of all desks, Being a fan of the show Mindhunter really helps to appreciate that part of the game. [spoiler]I just don't like that there's a big part of the game where you been lead to catch a framed suspect and it was very infuriating since I caught that very early to what the story is supposed to let you to know.[/spoiler] I also quite hate it when someone, whether guilty or not, important to the case or not, will use ANY and ALL opportunities to lie to you for no real apparent reason. I guess it just to exercise the mechanics but still annoying sometimes.

There's a chunk of inserted conversation that's somehow controversial in recent times. Based on the year, I expected a lot of racist remark which is a joke compared to many dismissed pedophilia that's been going around the story.

This game is ambitious beyond reason but also hugely successful in its execution. It really brings to life the world of James Ellroy to an extent I didn't think we could see in a game, at least not yet. The plot is intricate, the characters are cruel but nuanced, the city itself is alive. The ending is excellent. It holds no punches and it makes no excuses - it is the thinking man's GTA (which is how we also explain the less daunting sales figures) and if you want to piece every part of the plot together, you'd better pay attention. If you find this appealing, this game is bound to be something very special for you, otherwise you shouldn't bother.

The Good:

Just driving through LA (which you will do a lot of) is astounding in itself. The game is absolutely great to look at. The technology used seems enormous even today and that's really important when so much of the game is the ambiance, the visual details, the feel of driving through 1940s LA. The gameplay is original and the storyline is fascinating. Your fellow characters have real depth and so does your primary protagonist and the city itself. The world is dirty, corrupt, greedy, harsh, sad, all the things the world of Ellroy needs to be and it pulls no punches. There are no heroes here but that doesn't mean they're all villains either. The content is very large for a linear, story-driven game. Lots of cases, lots of societal aspects covered and unapologetically unfolded before us, lots of nasty little secrets to uncover. If you ever felt drawn to the world of true noire detectives, this is for you.

The Bad:

A few times, the game mechanic used during suspect interviews can feel a little arbitrary - that what you expect something to mean isn't what is actually meant by accusing a certain person of something at a specific time. Sometimes the game and the player will misunderstand each other which will lead to the player quitting and replaying a segment and feeling annoyed because he expected a different outcome from an action than the game presented and the player had no way of anticipating this. It isn't always exactly clear what the consequences will be from selecting a specific dialogue but most of the time it works. The facial animation can still seem slightly outdated (or very) but you can recognize the actors and the acting itself is top notch.

Do not buy this game if you're looking for a new GTA, also do not buy if you don't like stories and want pure action. But if you like stories, noire literature/film, Ellroy, just trying something a bit new to gaming, you HAVE to play this game. Very rewarding, extremely well done. This game was cared for down to its smallest detail, I hope someday we'll see more like this game but unfortunately Team Bondi passed away. As we know game industry is cruel:/

This game should no longer be listed on this platform.

That is not because the game is bad. The game itself is very good, perhaps even approaching the level of a masterpiece.

It is simply because the game doesn't work.

I'm running on a Ryzen 7 5800x, RTX 3070 and 32GB DDR4. The game would not launch without a registry fix (easily found online), and even now I have experienced a crash owing to memory allocation.

It is poorly optimised. It doesn't look great, and owing to a lack of modding tools - and the fact that most people accept the game as-is and are not willing to see it change, even if for the better - the community hasn't and likely won't ever try to change that. And for that reason I think the game shouldn't be listed for sale without any warning that it may not work correctly. Because it likely won't for you.

Rockstar, please. Fix your game.

Helpful links:
registry fix - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=725333965
RAM allocation error fix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-J9PkP9Evg (essentially run Steam / Rockstar launcher and the game as Admin)
60FPS without glitches: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1108DZiABc

I can't really recommend this game as it is, with all its problems, but other versions may be better in terms of simply launching the game.

Bought this game years ago, never played it. Wrongly assumed it was a GTA clone. Its not. Best described as a detective, story driven, crime drama set in the 40's. The open world elements can be skipped, the driving can be a bit of a pain and the combat really isn't great.

Game excels at detection and story telling. Some of the clues can be a bit too obscure to link to an accusation, and some times reading the facial clues is a bit hit and miss but its all worth the effort. And Phelps going berserk when you just want to tell someone you doubt their opinion is never not funny. Game ran fine, had 2 crashes in 25 hours. I want a sequel. 8/10

While L.A Noire is far from underrated, I think its plot is often misunderstood and underappreciated by many. This game was simply an action game for me when it was released, but years later having played it again as an adult, the story has expressed an entirely different perspective to me. With the setting of post-WW2 and its society concerns as the main points, L.A Noire's story thoughtfully covers up humanity age-long subjects such as politic, corruption, war, PTSD among other concerns that have become more and more relevant in this time and age for everyone. Perhaps it could have worked better as a TV show like people said, but then it would lose all the important little details and immersive interactions that are only achievable in a video game which largely contribute to good storytelling.

L.A Noire is remembered by most for its impressive mocap technology, but its storytelling and plot will be appreciated by many as years go by.

L.A. Noire requires you to read subtle facial cues to tell if someone is lying
Phelps: What exactly did you see them take?
Oswald Jacobs: They was working on tires, that's all that was took.
Jacob : *Strange ethic with an unexplainable face which you cannot diagnose if he is lying or the truth*

The game itself is great !

but the fact that rockstar do nothing to make the game launch at the first try it just STUPID.
to play you will have to do loong search about how to launch the game properly.
Even more you will have to sign up on the rock social club shitty thing, that's awfull !

so the game is great if you have enough motivation to search 2 hour on internet how to launch the game to play it.

(first thing to try, launch steam as administrator)

A man does not need much to enjoy a good game like LA Noire. My recipe for this game is: get the fix so you can actually start the damn game (namely this guide right here on Steam https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=725333965), one piece of WideScreen Fixer so you can unlock the stupidly set frame cap https://github.com/dlrudie/WidescreenFixer/releases and a cold one. This game still holds well after all these years and it can run at the native resolution of your screen (1440p in my case). Too bad you need to (still) uncap the 30 FPS with a third party tool.. I am happy I can still do that in 2021, 10 years after its release (well, 10 only on May 17th). The game looks as beautiful as it did back in 2011. I needed to feel like a detective again and the period depicted in the game is one of my favorites in history. The game looks and feels just like the first time I tried. It is one of those games that is well worth its money (WHEN IT ACTUALLY RUNS).
Now, if you excuse me, let me get back to being a detective in the 1950s *pops up another beer*.

Seriously, lots of people they post a negative review is that the PC version of this game got some problems in launching the game. But what Im gonna to say is about my own perspective to the negative aspects of L.A. Noire

1. The discontinuous playing experience

THIS is the main point why I dont wanna play the whole game L.A. Noire, however, I know that playing a role as a detective need to find clues as well as question those people who look like suspect. BUT in this game, it happened so frequently that really annoyed me greatly. For instance, you find some crucial clues which lead you to the PLACE A, then you get there, questioning, new PLACE B, then drive to the place B, questioning, then the next clues may indicate you need to going back to PLACE A or new areas. Driving scenes are too much that make me feel extremely bad and bored while playing L.A. Noire.

That is too much to say though, I just list the scenario that I hate most.

2. Limited logic reasoning

About this point, first I want to indicate that me myself may not love such type of playing,
Nevertheless, in L.A. Noire, there is only one answer that you cant make any possible ratiocination to effect the case's result or story and something else.
Well, it just a linear story game but I prefer that as a player we can have more choices to do my own conclusion, this is my view to play as a detective in a game, it may be more fun.
In addition, most of the time you gonna observer the facial expression to choose the right action to question the suspect. I get tired of this.


3. Some cases are really annoying ( cases that are too ordinary )

Positive

1. A fascinating 1940s background
2. Creative narrative
3. Amazing facial motion capture
4. Being a detective
