just finished disc 2, xbox 360 version obviously, and I'm starting to get bored... It's just too repetitive and while it's so similar to GTA, I miss being able to randomly whip out my gat and start busting caps in civilians. I'm glad I didn't buy it.

This is also the point I've reached. And to the guy saying that there's a lot they cut out of the game, I'm sure they'll be releasing tons of DLC. I just hope it won't cost much.

You are wrong. Its fact. I'll give you the storage, but the 360 is a slightly more powerful platform. I know a guy who worked in Mass Effect 2 and he was telling me about all the corners they had to cut on the PS3 to keep it playable. For example, on the 360 the NPC has 5 individual didgits on each hand, but on the PS3 they had to stick the last three fingers together so they were only really animating 3 digits.

I'm on disc 2 as well and I'm still really enjoying it. It's extremely different from any other game I've played/usually play. It's not all about constantly shooting people. It's about using your mind and observation skills to find out who solved the crime.

EDIT: STOP WITH THE VS. TALK!!!!

lolol no.

Not trying to turn this in to a console war, but you can't use a game with mediocre graphics that is cross platform and a first attempt by a development team to port over to PS3 as the end-all of power debate.

It's pretty indisputable that the PS3's exclusives outshine the 360's, graphically. GT5 looks better than Forza and is 1080p with 3D. Uncharted looks better than Gears. Killzone 3 looks better than Halo iterations and Gears iterations and is in 3D.

Inability to port code efficiently does not equate to more horsepower. You cannot judge a system's power by multi-platform titles anyways.

That aside, this game is pretty awesome. The tips and hints get a bit annoying, so like someone else stated before, turning them off makes everything much more immersive and fun.

I love it. You can knock the 360 in each post in terms of this game, but the moment something comes out about possible PS3 problems it's "no big deal". Fanboy 6000 to the rescue!

Okay so here's my "Post First Case" review.

Graphics: Facial Technology is absolutely amazing. In just about every previous game that slightly "pre-scripted" feeling of the took away from the realism just a tiny bit no matter how good the game. I can't think of a game previously I didn't notice the mouth animations being off at least once in the game. I am absolutely in AWE of the facial animation in LA Noire. Great design, and for a game that's so cinematic it's a must have going forward. Sure it takes so much longer to do the mocap for (as body and face are two separate sessions and it has restrictions, but it gives it that much more of a natural feeling. Outside that the rest of the graphics are top notch, and so far so good. Only oddity I've encountered so far is Cole was standing up while we drove once through the roof for about 10 seconds. lol!

Gameplay Mechanics: Solid, but your standard Sandbox 3rd Person. Nothing too special going on, but they're solid for sure. The cars sometimes can be a little TOO touchy as far as over turning when you just want a small correction, but that's about it.

Story: Immersive. The little bits about your past definitely heighten my want to know more about Cole. I really enjoy the "case at a time" with side stuff in between points. It gives you a pretty defined goal to solve and a purpose. In other open world games you just move from "main story" to "side story" and that's it until the end game or some pre-scripted big event. This lets you have a pretty solid mini goal to clear the case as you go no matter what. Then you get a whole new experience.

Loading Times: I don't know WTF is up with the person earlier saying their XB360 took upwards of 30-60 seconds to load events. I don't have that problem at all (250GB XB360 Slim w/o HDD install). I haven't had a loading screen last more than 10 seconds. Most are no longer than the "saving" and I'm already onto the next cut scene, or open event. So I actually think it's pretty good.

Overall I like it. I will post a "end of disc" review later with more case time under my belt, but so far a home run for Rockstar's publishing arm, and a great game for Bondi.

Actually not fixed. I literally meant when I finish Disc 1 I will post a review of what I'm thinking after putting more time into it since that will be a set point instead of saying "in X hours, or X missions".

I will be confused then if you post a end of disc review because I myself have never had to change discs...


^ you beat me to it. Also I am not a Playstation Fanboy I have posted that before I have been 360 only for 6 years but decided to go out and try it and its blowing me away in every way minus lack of cross game chat parties and other social aspects but that is ok.

Zero consequences for sidewalk surfing and mowing people down, that is...if they don't magically survive a semi truck to the face or slide out of the way of your hood.

For shame. You're supposed to do good for good's sake in this game. BUt there should be the option, and consequences for doing something bad. Don't make being bad not an option...

Comparing GT5 to Forza is like comparing olive garden to spaghetti-o's.

In all fairness on the PC end. I can still play most games on high w/ mine and it hasn't been upgraded (w/ the exception of loading win7 ultimate) in 2yrs.

Having said that. None of it matters. If you have fun then that's all that matters. Sure it's fun to knock the other console from time to time, how's that DLC working out PS3 guys... oh wait. PSN store is still down, but most of the time I honestly couldn't care less unless one system has a game breaking bug of HUGE problem.

Discs, minor things, etc... none of it means **** to me. Just have some fun, and stop whining about which console is better. Cause truthfully none of it matters in the long run if you're enjoying it.

yeah maybe 10 years ago it was like that, not anymore. I can max out every game at higher resolutions than consoles and I haven't upgraded anything in 2 years.

I haven't upgraded my PC in... 3 years? 4? It still runs everything out there without a single problem.

It won't run BF3 on max, but one video card purchase and I'm good for another 3 or so years. That's what you're missing; it's a choice to run games at the highest graphical fidelity. I don't have to buy a new card to play BF3 unless I want to enjoy it on max settings. Even with my current card, it will still look better than on PS3 or on 360.

Was just upgraded to Vice. The final mission on the table for murders was fantastic IMO. I knew the BD existed, but I had believed it to be someone else.
