Why would you want a Move anyway?

But really they're two completely different genres and are incomparable. It depends on what genre you like more. Might as well ask "what's better the 1998 Denver Broncos or A&W Onion rings". If I were you though, I'd go with LA Noire because if you want to get LBP2 I assume you've played LBP1 and therefore LA Noire would be a much more unique experience for you than a sequel, albeit an improved sequel.

Wait until there are more Move games to get a Move controller. Right now there isn't anything decent that requires it.

Just get both the games! If you have your heart set on the Move, though, I'd lean towards LA Noire. I have LBP2 and it's fun, but... I'd probably prefer to have LA Noire right now. ;P

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

LA Noire was a massive disappointment for me. I stopped playing when I was probably 1-2 cases from the end. That's how bland it was.

I thought the investigations were going to be smart and complex. Turns out they are basically the same thing over and over again. Once you've completed three to four investigation you've basically seen all the game has to offer in that area. The story itself also goes nowhere, and there's zero character development (seriously, it's impossible to care for the main character). Even the interviewing process is.. meh. Everyone always makes the same facial expressions for each situation (shifty eyes for lie/doubt, straight face for truth) so there's really nothing exciting there either.

Overall I am very surprised that the game received great reviews across the board. Gamer reviews are a lot more mixed, with tons of people agreeing with my viewpoint. I think it should get at least 60-70% just because the idea is awesome, but it gets zero bonus points from me for its execution.

If they just did a better job with the story I would've been able to put up with bland repetitive investigations and I would've be happy to give it an 80 or higher. I really would not have been hard to please. If they had a good story AND varied and complex investigations it would've been my goty easily. It's a shame they failed on so many levels because the I think the idea behind the game is seriously incredible. As it is LA Noire is basically just a facial expression tech demo with fantastic ideas and poor execution :/

Sorry for the rant.

So yeah, I say get LBP2 lol.
