    Good game for those who haven't played it, avoid if you played before.

    It may be the "complete" edition, but if you've played the original, beware. The DLC is mixed into the game and all your old save files won't work. I had 1000 points on the original version and comp...

    If you like hunting every pixel for evidence and interpreting frowns, stares, winks etc., then this game is for you!

    In my lifetime (I am 43), this is the first game that I have ever returned. I was very excited to get this game. I am a big fan of the GTA series and the 1940s world was one I was eager to explore. E...

    The new facial reconstruction technique is not that impressive, and the backbone of the gameplay is a bit shallow.

    I guess, I was waiting for more from this game. Real-time reading of people emotions, which success or failure impact the result of the game, seemed like a very interesting approach, but after a few h...

    Fiddly controls, needs good computer to run decently, poor minigame sequences for the most part, good deal of potential.

    LA Noire sets you as a cop that joined the force soon after world war 2. Starting on patrol and working your way through various desks, you come across a huge criminal conspiracy involving several hig...

    Really looking forward to this game, 50 to 60 hours of time online and with support. Game won't launch on year old PC.

    This game is not launching on my PC version. I tried every tip and idea on the Internet and spent time with "Rockstar" support. Their idea of dropping my firewall and removing my virus-scanning S/W go...

    My expectations were high and still they were surpassed. It is an instant classic that I highly recommend.

    I was very disappointed when I initially heard that the game isn't not coming out for PC. Months after its console release, when Rockstar Games finally decided to release it for PC, I was very pleased...

    A fun game that had much more potential

    Rated on February 04, 2012 by jake071

    This is a decent game although some of the cases become repetitive over time. Set in 1940s LA you play the role of a member of the LAPD. I will point out that since the days of playing Police Quest (y...
