LA Noire vs 1940’s Los Angeles: Screenshot Comparison

LA Noire is a detective game that is based in the 1940’s. Rockstar and Team Bondi have done an awesome job of recreating the look and feel of those times. But how does the game match up with the Los Angeles of 1940's? (L.A. Noire, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

Weird comparison. Should have compared actual locations lol

The police officer has a very strong resemblance to the real one.

Bubble up if you agree!

Honestly, the shots from the 1940's LA used there can be compared to any game that has a similar area. Like any GTA, Prototype, InFAMOUS, etc

You know, it's really annoying when websites put up s*** pieces like this just for hits. They even made sure to ask you to click the next button. Lame.

I think the game will be better than the site that wrote this article.

I agree, only the first one made a little sense. The rest were pointless. I imagine its hard though to compare real with game since you can't take pictures of 1940's L.A anymore. They have to find pictures that match screenshots which i'm sure is difficult. Hurray for PSN!!!

As the article states:

Note: This comparison is not a head to head one like some of our previous ones were. This comparison is more geared towards appreciating Team Bondi’s work of recreating the LA of 1940′s.

Wow look at that blue sky. Go to L.A. today and you won't see such a clear sky lol.

This is a weeeird article. Comparisons between the game, a picture of two women inside a car, a picture of an old car and a policeman.

What a terrible comparison. And only four shots too... It's like they thought, "Hey, I have a good idea. Let's take screenshots of L.A. Noire and find photos of actual 1947 L.A. to match them!" Then four miserable attempts later they gave up, but still posted the article.

Check out IGN's comparison shots of L.A. landmarks in the game. Their article is MUCH better:

Bah regardless of this article, LA Noire will be refreshing and feel authentic.

The idea was OK but the article is lacking. That first photo is of 1950's LA suburbia, not 1940's downtown. Apparently somebody doesn't recognize the 1953 Chevy or the other 1950's cars. The rest of the photo's also seem to be mainly from the '50's. Have to give the article writer a D- for the research verification.

The graphics are nothing to compare. Maybe the Mise-en-scene. This game has good visuals, but nothing mind blowing.

The pictures are like comparing salt water with lemonade, "Pointless"

You fail at life who ever made this article!!!! Learn how to make a comparison by finding buildings from the city in the 1940's and match it up with building in the game you sorry excuse for a gaming journalists!!!!!
