5.0 out of 5 stars Still stands up as one of the Rockstar highlights, 10 Feb 2013

This review is from: L.A. Noire The Complete Edition (XBOX 360) (CD-ROM)
Having played the PS3 version of this when it was originally released back in 2011, i had very fond memories of the unique gameplay, impressive graphics and compelling story line contained within. However, during my initial play through of the PS3 version, my beloved 80gb brick PS3 decided to develop the yellow light of death whilst playing this very game and alas no more next gen gaming or LA Noire for me.

Now its early 2013 and having recently picked up an XBOX 360 250gb bundle for next to nothing through a very competitive deal by the UK's largest supermarket just before xmas, i decided it was time to revisit the fondly remembered LA Noire and this time i opted for The Complete Edition to hopefully have a more immersive gaming experience, and I was not disappointed...

In my opinion, LA Noire along with GTA Vice City and Bully are some of the finest Rockstar gaming experiences you could ever have. Although this is no GTA in its gameplay style, it certainly has the Rockstar feel that you would expect, featuring a fantastic Jazz based soundtrack and an authenticity of the 1940's noire film genre that is unparalleled (especially if you choose to play in B & W).

I whole heartedly recommend this awesome game and advise that it is definitely worth purchasing The Complete Edition as the extra missions really do add positively to the overall gameplay experience.

On a side note, if you have ever played Heavy Rain on the PS3 and enjoyed it, LA Noire is of a similar gameplay style, yet more immersive and in my opinion has more replay value.
