Product Description

Originally developed by Team Bondi in conjunction with Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire is a crime thriller set in post-World War II Los Angeles. As Detective Cole Phelps, players must search for clues, interrogate suspects and chase down criminals to solve a series of cases based on real world incidents. As he rises through the ranks of the LAPD, Phelps comes face-to-face with the corrupt heart of Los Angeles: from fallen starlets to double-dealing police officers and the vast reaches of the criminal underworld and finally, the darkness of his own personal demons.

In addition to the original full game, consumers that purchase L.A. Noire The Complete Edition will receive a multi-use code to access all downloadable add-ons and cases. This includes all previously released DLC from the console versions, including the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case.

The PC version of L.A. Noire The Complete Edition was developed by Rockstar Leeds. It will run on a wide range of PCs and feature increased resolution and graphical detail along with keyboard remapping and gamepad functionality. L.A. Noire The Complete Edition on PC will also feature support for NVIDIA 3D Vision for an even greater sense of interaction and immersion.


L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition Includes:

  • All of the previously released downloadable content for L.A. Noire
  • "Nicholson Electroplating" Arson case
  • "Reefer Madness" Vice case
  • "The Consul's Car" Traffic case
  • "The Naked City" Vice case
  • "A Slip of the Tongue" Traffic case

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad console port, bad support, decent game 1 Jan 2012
By Tom
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start by saying that getting LA Noire to work has been the most frustrating experience in my 15+ years as a PC gamer.

Quick tips:
- If you want to play this game on a laptop: DO NOT BUY!
See the 1 star reviews of laptop owners for more details
- If you cannot install this game on your C:\ drive: DO NOT BUY!
Read my review below to find out why

I had been following LA Noire for some time and received it as a Christmas gift.
Like many other PC users/gamers, I have a C:\ drive reserved for Windows and other related applications (Office, browser, etc) and dedicated drives for music, games, etc.
So when i first installed this game i put it on my usual games drive, instead of the default location on C:\. Game installs fine and when i launch it for the first time it takes me through the activation and mandatory patching process via Rockstar Social Club (= Rockstar's DRM crap).

After this first patch the game needs to be restarted and when it launches again suddenly the patching fails.
Patching LANLauncher.exe
Error Patching: Error binary patching file

But i can just proceed with loading the game despite this, or so i think...
LA Noire continues by checking for saves, DLC, etc., but then it hangs on the final loading screen before the main menu (LA Noire neon logo).

I forcefully quit the game and try to relaunch. This time i get a fatal error stating my settings.ini file is malformed and i need to delete it.
Very weird, considering i haven't even looked at the settings yet, but I delete the file and restart LA Noire.
The game starts up, creates the settings file again and then gives me the same malformed settings file error...

4.0 out of 5 stars A few flaws but great detective fiction 4 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I've been lucky enough to avoid the installation and startup issues that mean a lot of people can't play the game. I have had a performance issue which rendered the game unplayable which I was able to fix using '-str' in the command line, and the game still runs slowly all things considered.

The game has been out for some time now on consoles and has been well covered elsewhere. You can view it as a scaled back version of the city and driving aspects from the GTA series but with a more narrative driven missions. Shooting is similar and uses a cover based system that doesn't work especially well and there's less to do in terms of distractions which I prefer to the sprawl of GTA and it's side missions. I've marked it down in terms of fun for a few reasons. The missions become very forumlaic after a while, drive to a location, search it/question a suspect, repeat. Fortunately, the content is excellent and keeps you invested in the outcome of the case. There is also the occasional shift in tone or a mini-game style sequence, and while these don't always work well the variety is welcome.

And while the writing is pretty good, some of the questions and clue combinations seem fairly random. Ask a guy about selling stolen morphine and the fact you found a load hidden in his office throws up a fail if you put that to him. This boils some questioning sessions down to trial and error, and with no quick load option it gest tiresome. There are some really inspired moments in the game and it's entertaining enough to keep me from finishing Arkham City. The bonus content is a nice touch and 5 extra missions is not to be ignored in this age of being charged for costume packs and skins. If you liked the GTA series and enjoy hard boiled detective stories, LA Noire is well worth getting. Just be warned you may not be able to run it without problems.

1.0 out of 5 stars Major disappointment 13 Jan 2013
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up LA Noire in the January sales for what I thought was a pretty reasonable price. Around a tenner for a game with all the DLC and at a point when any bugs would surely have been patched and fixed.

I have to be honest, I've not been this disappointing by a game for a long time.

First the positives, the facial animation is excellent, fantastic even, it's better than anything I've seen in any other game BUT the fact that the character models are not anywhere near the levels of their facial animation is glaringly obvious. Its almost like seeing a face projected onto a mannequin. The story, if you have A LOT of patience the story can be quite good, noire stories are generally slow burning but the problem comes with....

...the gameplay. Honestly this is the worst thing about the game. You can dress it up as nice as you want but if a GAME doesn't have fun or interesting GAMEPLAY then what is the point in playing it? It feels like all I did was follow a straight line. You have driving, fighting and interrogations/detective work. On PC at least the driving can be awful, one slight tap of a key and you fly into oncoming traffic. The fighting, well the hand to hand stuff can be fun if a little unresponsive at times and the gunplay is genuinely fun but there is so little of it. The bulk of the game consists of the interrogating gameplay, that and walking slowly around crime scenes and looking at clues. The interrogation involves asking people questions, gauging their response and deciding whether you believe them or not. It becomes tedious very fast.

The main problem is that it felt like I had no choice in what was happening, a mission starts, I go to point A, pick up clues am force fed where to go, go to point B interrogate person A and repeat.
