The Question: So what do you think of L.A. Noire?

[Every Friday, Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]

We’ve got a pretty easy question this week — L.A. Noire, yay or nay? The game released in North America this Tuesday, and in Britain today. Many of you have had your hands on it, so what do you reckon? 

You all know what I thought if you’ve read the Destructoid review. I called it “a testament to the possibility of bringing dark, adult, mature games to the mainstream market,” and stated that it’s “guaranteed to be a classic for years to come.” My words are echoed by nearly every other reviewer out there. 

So, do you agree with the reviews, or would you more agree with Far Cry 2‘s creative director, who called it shallow and uninspired? Do you think L.A. Noire is excellent, or trite? Thrilling or boring? Are you impressed or creeped out by the facial animation? 

This is the question of the week. Answer it!
