How does /v/ like LA Noire? I'm playing it for the first time again in years and I'm really enjoying it this time around. My first playthrough I didn't like it so much
It's one of my favorite games, but chart threads indicate to me that it's not a very popular opinion here.
I'd like it if they would of dropped all the GTA aspects (over the top violence and shooting gallery levels) I think the driving and the city over world could have worked better if they made the game more like the Mafia games and less GTA-like.
Cole was a fucking idiot for screwing around behind his wife, yet his death felt really pointless, then again, must sacrifice endings are. Playing as jack was entertaining and Roy was the most likeable asshole ever.
making a game's driving like the first mafia is a long stretch though because that shit had 900 degree wheel and proper clutch support
Which begs the question of why rockstar never added at least a basic form of manual trans to GTA
I guess but it would be a nice extra for when you want to mess around
I'll take proper gear ratios over it though, cars in GTA games always topped out below ecobox top speed for some fucking reason
Mmmh, story really shines with the criminals investigations, kinda fall flat after that.
But I loved the ambiance and the city, it's huge and nicely detailed, quite impressed by the work putted into it. Shame it doesn't serve any purpose. But driving around with Jazz music is comfy as fuck.
With the new GTA driving schematic nope
If they re-add a fixed camera you could use the right axis, but they wont. So the only alternative is kb or wheel, but shifting on a kb is incredibly awkward and wheels are rare so its probably why rockstar wont bother
that and muh laziness
It was a shit game. Open world that is not worth exploring, ridiculous face expressions that are no where near real life, characters that are bland and forgettable, quests become repetitive. Voice acting was fine but aside from that, 2/10.
I heard very well about this game, but when i started, i didnt like it very much. My personal review:
What is good:
>The interviews, clue searching and other adventure game mechanics.
What is meh:
> Cole is very bad and unlikeable character, the story progression (the one about cole, not the cases) is awful.
What is bad:
> The driving is the worst i ever played. Yeah, it was suposed to be like driving old shitty cars, but it was the most awful chunk of metal ever.
>Also, the shooting is the most generic ever.
Why exactly wouldn't Rockstar make a sequel to LA Noire or even Bully 2? I'm pretty sure there is a high demand for it
one of my favorite games, i wish it was longer and that the patrol desk was MUCH longer.
i wanted to go around solving random crimes and shit.
also there should have been a cops & robbers mode, or a mode like the online ace attourney threads where people make community cases.
Are these any good? I'm honestly surprised there aren't much crime solving games. I love the crime solving genre. Probably why Case Closed/Detective Conan is my all time favorite show
Why is crime solving games so few in video games? You would think it would be one of the easiest genres to make a game for since there are so many fucking crime solving TV shows
True. Forgot most gamers these days want their hands held during video games and hate to think for themselves.
It's bad whenever old JRPGs (Final Fantasy for example) get released on smartphones these days because now they have auto save features and even cheats to help you get through boss fights. It's sad how stupid people have gotten these days
i love this game
really wanna replay it but dont own it on steam
i appreciate rockstar so much for sticking to their guns and having enough integrity to publish a game with such potentially controversial topics
i'd love to see a sequel 'cause the world they created had tons of detail (so many unique buildings), but the actual graphics, even on PC, look quite poor.
You get to like Cole more and more as the story goes on.
He's basically someone who fucked up big when he was young but got rewarded for it and feels constant guilt over it. He tries to forget about that part of his life and somewhat succeeds in building a new life but his past catches up to him, he fucks up again big time and loses everything he's gained so far. The ending is his final amend.
Pretty good game, but the interrogation system needed working on. At times it was fucking impossible to figure out if someone was lying or not unless you had hard evidence to back it up.
I remember in one of the cases, you talk to a neighbour, and she does nothing but lie to you. For no fucking reason. She's not an important part of the case, she has no reason to lie and it's down right impossible to tell that she is lying, but she lies anyway.
This happens way too many times. You're suppose to take hints from things like facial expressions, body language and tone of voice, but it's all done so poorly you just don't know what the fuck to make of it half of the time.
That and it has no replay value at all are the only problems I had with it.
I had trouble with the interrogations, too, until I figured out you could just stare at the suspect for like 20 seconds after they talk and they'll keep doing their visual cue if they're lying.
I'm also bad at spotting liars in real life unless it's something I know to be a lie. People say I'm too naive and trusting.
I used to be like that but then got served a huge turd sandwich by God that I had to eat. You'll get yours in due time, I'm sure.
