Played up till the end of disc 1 so far. It seems with games like these the endings are always somewhat underwhelming.


how many discs does it comes with? this game intrigues me

I played about 4 hours last night, reading some of the facial cues can be hard as a bitch.

I'm probably 3 or 4 hours in and loving it so far.

It's not action packed but it's fucking enjoyable just cruising around L.A.

Currently on disc three. Arson's boring as shit compared to being on Traffic or Vice.

so does it get any more engaging? I'm not to far in, but it's kinda been a snoozefest. I think I play about 90% of the game with one hand. Not to mention you can answer everything wrong and the game still moves forward. Putting GTA in the title was a bit misleading, this has no satire and the gameplay is completely linear.

Is it worth $60? I'm thinking about waiting for a price drop.

Best single player experience in a long time. I feel like I got my money's worth for sure. That said I am probably selling/trading it sometime soon.

Was quite disappointed with how easy the game/achievements were to be honest, only took a few days to get the 1000G. The story was awesome, though.

It's a great game. I love that it feels like a detective movie out of the early 1900s

The partner you get on the vice cases is an even bigger pain in the ass.

Now I'm actually starting to like Rusty. Originally I hated him because he was a sack of shit that complained about women and sat back while I took gunfire. Now I'm actually liking him for that same reasons.

360 version really has 3 discs?  I feel ripped off now.  I could have pretended like they rereleased Final Fantasy VII if I had XBox.  Damn you Sony and your blu-ray convenience!

I'm still pretty broken up about one of the cases. I feel like I picked the wrong guy based on who the Captain was pressuring me to pick. Anybody that's played through the Homicide ranks knows what I'm talking about.

So do the choices you make in the game really affect anything? Or can you just be wrong all the time?

I haven't played the game, I just saw South Park dissing it.

if you get all the questions wrong it makes to story mode longer and more challenging, so you can get every thing wrong it will just make it even longer

Yep. I jailed the child molester and let Moller walk. I forgot that I caught Moller incinerating his bloody shoes. I shouldve pinned him.

Actually yes they do affect the game, also the way you approach the cases affect the game. there will be like 2 or 3 places to go during a case and depending on where you pick is where the story takes you. You can miss evidence that could have helped you beat the case way way faster. I found the game fairly interesting and so did my brother. I wasnt aware that the xbox had 3 discs though.

Game has a giant arc.  Sorry guys, but the second half of the game was fucking awful. 

Spoiler Alert












































By the end of the game your not even solving crimes, just playing through them.  I thought this was going to be one of those games that I would pick up again down the line and play through again because it was so good, but it seems to me half way through production they just said fuck it and finished it as fast as possible.  Playing through the second half was such a bummer.
