Report #401: L.A. Noire

Life of Daerphen Challenge Year 2011

Installed this game, deinstalled it, installed it again, and back and forth. Had to be very stubborn to finally get used to it. The main issue I had in the beginning was the controls of driving the car. It was just not moving, turned out that I had my driving wheel still connected with the PC and this caused issues. The game really has compatibility issues with newer Windows versions. If you have two monitors, it will always start on your second screen, but after changing resolution in the menu back and forth it sticks to the primary display.

Game was nice, took me probably around 25 hours to complete the story. And then another 10 hours to grind all the collectibles.

Ha, I am at 41 hours and still haven’t completed the game. xD I suppose I also missed some of the achievements, so I will have to do one more playthrough.
Congrats on your progress! :)


I think there was not one single achievement that require a full playthrough. Maybe with the exception of getting 5 stars in all cases.
But each case is replayable from main menu. And you can free roam each desk to get the street crimes done.

The land marks, film reels and driving all cars is very time consuming.
Also you can check the Social Club for the missing stuff: https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/lan/checklist


But each case is replayable from main menu.

That’s a great thing to hear! :D
Thank you, now I won’t feel so scared of coming back to the game as I last played it in 2015. 😅
