L.A. Noire: High Life

L.A. Noire: High Life

Rockstar have just revealed some new screens for L.A. Noire (The High Life of Los Angeles, 1947) and gives some more details about the game.


The post-war economic boom and full-fledged glory of Hollywood’s golden era brought a new, revitalized air of glamour and prestige to the world of Los Angeles in 1947. In L.A. Noire, this is exemplified by high-end mansions flanked by luxury vehicles, exclusive restaurants and top class shops... all catering to the idle class.

Detective Cole Phelps will soon learn firsthand though what they say about all that glitters. With power comes ruthlessness, with wealth and privilege come greed, with fame comes desperation - and below that high-gloss sheen lie the darkest of souls.

No it's not a joke.

It's seriously sad to see people who are only interested in the visuals being technically comparable to the best, completely ignoring the effort that has gone in to the art direction and successfully creating the game with such technical restrictions.

The visuals are absolutely fantastic, and if you can't see that then you are blind.

agreed, there are some people out there that only ever see the surface of something rather then dig down to see how it is made and what it took to make it.

It's an open world game, what did you expect, Crysis? Besides, this game is obviously not strong unless it's in motion. And for an open world game, it looks actually very good. And the character animation alone is so fucking impressive that who the fuck cares if the game doesn't look absolutely superb, it still looks more real than something like Crysis in some ways.

Looks pretty freaking detailed to me, this in motion will be a spectacle for any open-world fan

high life? are you kidding me how about showing the real high life as in all the drinking parties, the massive crowds of young girls in bunny and cat outfits and the secret orgies that used to take place, now that is the high life.
