"L.A. Noire is not flawless, but its ambition is largely unrivalled."

"L.A. Noire is not flawless" implies there is something wrong with it yet it gets a PERFECT score.

Gaming journalism FTW!!

guess its too much to ask for a honest reasonable score these days.

well it would be unjust to give it 3 out of 4, wouldnt it?

I dont like the argument that a game has to be perfect to get full marks particularly with a scoring system out of 4,5 and 10

If a game does sooo much and the flaws are of little consequence to the ambition of the game then I think a perfect score is justified unless the scoring in 0.5/10 or 1/100

game like Shenmue and Deus Ex are both flawed games but both would get a perfect score from me if it 1/10 or 1/5 scoring

i never said it should get a 3/4. but i suppose taking off 0.1/0.2/0.3 is too much to ask for. guess when it comes to exclusives they easy to nit pick to deduct them points.

i dont like the fact that perfect scores that get thrown around so often these days. takes away form the novelty of aquiring such a good score.

By todays scoring standards, the original Deus-Ex will have gotten 15/10.

you forgot about Shenmue, that would also get 15/10
