Not bad if you missed it on clearance a few months ago for $9 at Target in store. I enjoyed the game quite a bit.

This IS in-store. You must have come across the standard edition being clearanced out or a YMMV situation from a suicidal DM.

What's the difference between this "Complete Edition" and the standard edition?

The game uses a new save - so if you finished the vanilla u have to finish this game again to play the dlc!!!! It's BS!!

It includes all the previously released DLC for la noire. Kind of like the goty editions for other games. Good deal if you havent played the game yet.

Yup, it sucks that not only does the save not carry over, but the DLC cases are integrated into the game as if you finished the game and just bought them, so you have to play the entire story to open them up again if you previously had the vanilla. The least they could have done was add a DLC cases sub-menu or something.

Um...no I got it for 9.99 a couple months ago from Target in-store just like he did(and yes it was the Complete Edition). It was during the Target Mobile/NextWorth promotion(last week of April)-sorry you missed that one it was awesome!

Nope, it was the Complete Edition. It was $9 and they had STACKS of them. I bought one then went back a couple days later to buy the rest and they were all gone.

Yeah, as others have already jumped in and said... This was on normal clearance cycle a few months ago. Got mine for 9.98 haha, and it was reported by tons of people.

Still a deal though, just kinda odd they'd bump it back up to MSRP and then put it on "sale" when it was already on full clearance.

Come to think of it, a lot of the games that were clearanced out during that time all disappeared at my store around the same time...just poof, gone...and I know they weren't there long enough to be pitched. Wonder if we'll see the same thing happen to Driver and Crysis 2.

So it wasn't immediately $9.99. You had to trade something in first in order for you to get it for $9.99.

It was regular clearance and you didn't have to trade ANYTHING to get that price. It was on clearance like anything else you might see on clearance. I got the complete edition, beat it, and now sold it on eBay for twice what I paid for it. Great deal. Great game. Great clearance.

Gameplay is not very good.

The concept is cool, descent story A+ voice acting though and great production level. Just honestly though as a "Video Game" I would have liked more gameplay. Unless I was retired or had all of the time in the world this game simply is not for me. Way to slow and not enough gameplay.

It was pretty much an adventure game. If you like the telltale games then you would like la noire.

I bought it at launch and finished it is the dlc really good? Does it add 4-5 hrs of new cases? Not sure if. Should wait for even a lower price point

No problem. It is an open world but don't expect tons of action on a constant basis. You run people down, have gun battles, etc. there's an open world but you can get your partner to drive (and save a lot of time). I read a lot of reviewers said that's all they ever did. I tried driving myself for a while then eventually had the computer do it (it skips to the location right away). There are random police calls you can do but IMO they fucking sucked.

There are interrogations and such. You can often chose who you want to put in jail. I liked the story quite a bit and since it's broken up into case files, it's easy to find a stopping point.

No actually it was $9.98 with the red clearance tag and I used the trade in coupon to get it for nothing:)

This game is so underrated. I beat it quickly, because I couldn't stop playing it. It's a steal for this price.

I played the game and all the dlc and I hated this game. I think I would've liked it a lot more if the main character wasn't a dick, they built up to the end more, and it was five hours shorter.

Wow, it took me a lot longer than five hours.

At least they explained why he was a such a dick.

I played it in black and white mode for 95% and took my time with it. Had a good time with it. But I am a fan of The Naked City. Was fun to play the case influenced by the film.
