"Rockstar has turned out its most pointed, and poignant, statement with L.A. Noire. The game tells a deeply moving and relevant story that speaks to the player because it feels so possible... The Rockstar hallmark — gritty, believable, wry dialogue — is on full display." - The New York Times

"Here's what's most amazing about L.A. Noire: Rockstar Games and Team Bondi could have easily cranked out a GTA-style
game set in this era and had a pretty strong title. However, they stepped outside that box and delivered a truly unique
detective drama with detailed crime scenes and intense interrogations. That's enough evidence to label L.A. Noire
as a potential game of the year."
- USA Today: 4/4 Stars

"With computer games now out-selling DVDs it was only a matter of time before we had a game that could compete
with Hollywood's storytelling - and L.A. Noire might just be it.... Without doubt one of the finest games you'll play all year – and
a benchmark for those to come."
- Stuff: 5/5

"Rockstar and Team Bondi have created a game that nothing else even comes close to. We can't even draw comparison to
anything else, because we can't think of anything remotely like it... Book your holiday now, and if you can't, get ready to
call in sick. Make sure you break up with the missus/mister as well, 'cos you ain't going nowhere."
- Maxim: 5/5

"with L.A. Noire, the partnership of innovative technology and assured craftsmanship demands your attention in ways
other games don't. If you look away from Rockstar's latest, you could fail to notice something important–a clue to another
evolutionary offshoot of what modern video games can be. You don't want to miss that; you'll need the evidence for later."
- Techland: 9.1/10
