Glass of whiskey, pouring rain, and tangled cases — we made a list of games that can make you feel like a real detective, either on the sunny streets of Los Angeles or filthy alleys of Ankh-Morpork
Is it still worth picking up LA Noire?
For sure. Graphically, it's still not that bad.
Absolutely. One of Rockstar's best games. Enjoyed it far more than any of the GTA games.
I was extremely disappointed back when it had finally came out. The graphics and technical aspects were the standouts, and the detective work at the scene of the crimes were fun. The problem was after you'd completed your first couple desks, it was the same thing over and over again. They made a big deal about the tech behind the interrogations, and rightfully so, but like I said, it's just rinse, repeat after you've picked up on what the game is. The city was also very bland, as there was nothing in it aside from going to point A or B to investigate. There was almost no point to having an open world. I would have liked to have been able to pick up extra clues outside of the crime scene or ask people around the city what they saw on the street more. But it might have been worth it for me if it wasn't full price.
Sounds like they missed the boat on some key aspects. I really like this time period, so I might pick it up.
Judgment is the best of them all.
