I played the original game many years back, and this is as good as it was. The only down sides are the exact same ones as they were in the original. Repeating questions during questioning until you get the right combo. It gets tedious after a few tries. But if you can get past that very small factor, You will love this game!

Je ne comprend pas les avis négatif.
Le jeu est très amusants, il suffit d’avoir un niveau en anglais potable (dur pour nous les français je vous l’accorde :D).
Certe j’ai eu plusieur problème avec le jeu qui ne voulais plus ce lancer, mais rien d’irreparable par un simple reinstal.
Je recommande pour les detectives en herbe.

This game is what VR games should aspire to be! It is a full (not quite but more on this later) AAA game of high quality in both tipical game aspectas as in VR aspects. The game does have a couple of bad things, though: I had some issues, including crashes, with the mandatory Rockstar Laucher (when will they drop that useless piece of…); and the game is NOT a full game. They took several cases from the original L.A. Noire and made it VR. Don’t get me wrong, the cases are very well ported to VR but they are isolated not following a continuous storyline and if you did not play the original the story, it becomes a confusing mess.

Having played the flat version on console on PC, but never really getting far with it, I was excited to play this in virtual reality, especially as it was free on viveport promotion.

Playing on a Vive Pro, GTX1080 with the display settings mostly around mid-range or high, the game played smooth and looked really great!

It’s really immersive to walk or drive around in an open world, and the character effects that made this game famous at launch make the game even more immersive in VR.

This is probably up there with the best VR experiences, if you put on your make believe hat and immerse yourself in the game, you’ll be enjoying shoot outs and car rides as if you were there.

It’s really cool that Rockstar turned this into a decent VR game – the controls are good, plenty of options, getting in and out of a car could have been a mess, but it works well.

This is what VR was made for. Come on Rockstar, lets have some more cases. I’d pay for them as dlc.
The content here is massive. 6 – 7 full cases at about 2 hours each.
Controls are brilliant. Graphics are awsome, and the gameplay is absolutely unmatched by anything in the games industry at the moment. If you have a VR headset, GET THIS.

Excellent jeu VR. De très beaux graphismes et des scénars dignes d’un bon polar. Les déplacements offrent un choix vaste et les contrôles fonctionnent à merveille. Le jeu n’est pas en VF mais le sous-titrage est très lisible et suit le regard. Les combats aux poings sont très bien fichus (on peut esquiver avec le corps). Pour les échanges de tirs, c’est très prenant malgrè le fait que l’on ne peut se planquer que derrière un décors prédéfini parmi 2 emplacements. (ou 3, je ne sais plus^^)
En voiture, on a la possibilité de s’assoir pour conduire et ensuite de se relever pour sortir du véhicule. Bref, très bon jeu avec d’autres bonnes surprises comme passer la marche avant ou la marche arrière en voiture.
Merci HTC pour cette offre.

Testé sur un Vive, RTX 2080, Ryzen 7 2700X, RAM 32 Go. Super ambiance des années 40, le Los Angeles de l’époque est parfaitement rendu, les expressions des personnages assez bluffantes, avec des vraies “tronches”. Les enquêtes sont variées, avec de la recherche d’indices, des interrogatoires, des fusillades, des courses automobiles. Dommage que ça ne soit pas doublé en Français, et surtout que les contrôles soient aussi grossiers. Les déplacements sont lents et fastidieux, quel que soit le mode, et les interactions imprécises. Ca plombe hélas le gameplay et le rythme.

Doens’t work with oculus rift maybe because I can’t lunch it in Oculus SDK (only steam vr).

My system is i7 5820k, GPU MSI Gaming x GTX1070, system ram is 32gb and this games is unplayable. Stuttering is so ugly, but so ugly that belive me I never seens anything similar in my gamer hustory. It’s literally impossible to play, even lowering down all graphic settings.

Please fix this, try at leat to add an Oculus SDK launcher option, maybe it works.

WtF! No wonder you are giving away this tripe for free. What is with all the agro regarding specs and required hardware combos.

still too buggy … even after a buggy experience on Steam which resulted in a refund. Receiving it here for free … yet the experience is the same … horrible! Stuck in the office for eternity! Thought this game had great potential, but the bugs has ruined it for me … possibly forever!
