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.
Error:
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...

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.

This game really takes me back.
I'm getting on in years now, 30 fast approaches, but I can still remember when I was young and games on CDs were new fangled high-tech stuff.
I remember the fun I had every time I bought a new game trying to properly configure my graphics card, my sound card and all of that sort of thing in the hope that I could get it to work.
Those days are gone now. Kids don't realise what they're missing. They buy a game, shove it in their computer, and leave it alone whilst it installs itself and becomes ready to play.
Oh sure there's a lot of fun to be had with idiotic piracy protection measures which the pirates take great pleasure in cracking and serve only to annoy paying customers. But that sort of thing just doesn't feel the same as the joy that could be had with trying to get a game to work.

LA Noire now. LA Noire is a very retro game. It throws out all modern conventions of just working if a computer surpasses the minimum specifications. Oh no. LA Noire really takes me back to the sheer childhood disappointment of buying a game only for it to refuse to work on my computer (yet it always decided to magically work when tried on a friend's computer, pffft!).
It has been many years since I've bought a game like this; One which just plain outright refuses to work on my machine. Nothing that I do can get it to work; and considering I shouldn't have to do anything crazy to get a modern game to work that's saying something.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. YOU WILL REGRET IT.
Is the game itself any good?
I've no idea. My Playstation 3 owning friends say so. For PC owners this game is forbidden.
