Scores a 92 from Metacritic

Quote:
Amid the post-war boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, Cole Phelps, an LAPD detective is thrown headfirst into a city drowning in its own success. Corruption is rampant, the drug trade is exploding, and murder rates are at an all-time high. In his fight to climb the ranks and do what's right, Phelps must unravel the truth behind a string of arson attacks, racketeering conspiracies and brutal murders, battling the L.A. underworld and even members of his own department to uncover a secret that could shake the city to its rotten core. Using groundbreaking new animation technology that captures every nuance of an actor's facial performance in astonishing detail, L.A. Noire is a violent crime thriller that blends breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience. Search for clues, chase down suspects and interrogate witnesses as you struggle to find the truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.…

Basically i hear....
1) Slower but more immersive than GTA.
2) Open World but not "anything goes". You can explore to your leisure but you can't run around and gun down hookers.
3) Repetitive mission structure for a lot of the game.
4) When it's not repetitive it's freaking super awesome.

From all the stuff i have perused about the games so far from reviews and people who have it...

Game is getting glowing reviews. I may have to pick this up on release day to play with the GF. I think I can get her interested in a game like this.

Giantbomb.com review says PS3 version is better by a hair:

Quote:
Having spent a lot of time with both versions of L.A. Noire, the PlayStation 3 game is the clear-cut winner. Both versions of the game look fantastic, but there were a few instances of painful frame rate drops and objects drawing in too slowly on the Xbox that didn't exist on the PS3. Also, the shadows look a bit more jagged. This is splitting hairs since, both games look good enough that you should just get the one on the platform you prefer, though the PS3 also has the added benefit of being on a single disc to the Xbox's three, and includes an exclusive downloadable case (which I didn't get to try, and you probably won't be able to play either until the PlayStation Store is back online).

gamefly shipped this one out to me today (one of the only times they've got a new release out to me...)

hoping for something different from gta4 which i never really got into. didn't play RDR, but loved bully...

just wondering how much fun the interrogation and crime scene investigation gameplay is - gonna kinda make or break it for me as the rest (car chases, shootouts, quirky missions) sound like they've kinda been done before based upon reviews.

I keep hearing it's different and not "open world" but it sounds similar to me, I'm not sure why it's so different.

It might not be different in that aspect but GTA4 and Red Dead Redemption had multiplayer. Even if I dont do "game modes" within multiplayer there are free roam which is very popular with both games thanks to Rockstar. That to me gives a gamer more reason to go back to it.

LA Noire seems like Assasins Creed 2 where once you beat it? Thats it. There is no pull for you to go back and play it unless there were achievements you wanted to complete. Not sure if LA Noire keeps track of game completion so if you're one of those people who needs 100% then that is another reason for one to go back to it.

I'm going to wait for people to play it and listen to feedback. I'm pretty sure this game has alot of hours in story mode. So it'll keep people occupied but I like to feel some kind of replay value from a game.

Watch the video review I posted. There's 21 assigned cases and 40 unnasigned cases that come to you as you progress through the game.

Now, I have no idea if you can go back to a case if you decide to skip one, but that's 60 cases. That's a lot of gameplay.

I pre-ordered it on BestBuy.com, which came with a unique in-game perk to Best Buy preorders.... and a $15 Best Buy gift card is being mailed to me as we speak.

I'll probably pick it up at my local Best Buy sometime this evening.

$15? Thought it was $10. Wow. I probably shouldve jumped on that deal.
