    An unforgettable piece of gaming.

    This game is awesome and I mean it. It's a must have for all those who love games. You play as Cole Phelps and you have different cases to solve. There are also twists in the plot and surprises along the way. It is a kin... Read Full Review

    Very nice kind of game, but also very hard

    LA Noire is an open-world Los Angeles 1960's detective life game. Different from other famous Rockstar games where you are free to kill people, here you're a good man serving the public by solving murder, theft and drug ... Read Full Review

    Niet slecht, maar weinig keuze

    Leuk spel, niet makkelijk om mensen in te schatten. Weinig vrije spelkeuze en uiteindelijk makkelijk uit te spelen. Spel zit wel knap in elkaar door de leuke verhaallijn. Tussen opdrachten zijn ook fijn, maar weder... Read Full Review

    Fails in every way

    L.A Noire was one of my most anticipated games of 2011. I was really looking forward to cracking cases and exploring L.A and returning to my favorite genre, the adventure game but the gameplay falls flat. The graphics l... Read Full Review

    A flashy tale of whodunit comes alive in the streets of L.A. Noire with plenty of style and pizazz

    L.A. Noire achieves what many thought was not possible for an open world video game, not have the player kill everyone in sight and still be fun. Rockstar is best known for its Grand Theft Auto franchise which does exact... Read Full Review

    Good - but not great...

    I feel really bad about giving this game just a 7, but the moment I finished it, the first thing that went through my mind is - good, but not great. Then when I came here, I saw that 7 - was Good and 8 - was Great, and ... Read Full Review

    My L.A. Noire experience (no spoilers)

    I remember watching the first teaser / trailer of L.A. Noire and was astounded by the richness and quality. I love the 1940s and after watching the Michael Mann film Public Enemies (2009), my hype for L.A. Noire went ou... Read Full Review

    Good at some points but doesn't live up to its hype due to the repetitive gameplay.

    L.A. Noire, published by Rockstar was one of the most anticipated games of 2011. L.A. Noire provides you with a unique responsibility; to take on the role of the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department). As you take on th... Read Full Review
