Ships Ahoy - L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition

Rockstar Games announces the Windows PC edition of L.A. Noire is now available in North America as the L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, which bundles all the DLC from the console editions of the detective thriller. They offer an L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition launch trailer, and the following details:

L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition is available today across North America today via retail stores and digital distributors, including Steam, Amazon, Direct2Drive and OnLive (look for it Friday in Europe and Australia).

In addition to the original full game, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition for PC includes a multi-use code to access all the previously released downloadable content from the original console versions, including the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, the “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case.

Developed by Rockstar Leeds, the PC version of L.A. Noire runs on a wide range of PCs and features increased resolution and graphical detail along with keyboard remapping and gamepad functionality, plus support for NVIDIA 3D Vision for an even greater sense of interaction and immersion. For system specs and more details visit www.rockstargames.com/lanoire/pc and be sure to look for an all-new Official PC Launch Trailer later today commemorating the release.

Well the crashing on launch issue was easily solved by just starting Steam up as Administrator.

I cranked every setting the game had up and the graphics were obviously an improvement over the PS3 and ran very smoothly. But as with most console ports a lot of increase in fidelity just serves to highlight shortcomings, like buildings looking kind of blocky, jaggies even with 2x AA, and a slight bit of noticeable pop-in.

The settings provided seemed decent enough and keys were easily rebindable. There're also options to change the UI size and aim assist, so that's a nice PC touch. They've removed the option for realistic driving and the driving (using keyboard) seems much much easier than I remember. Shooting was comparable to PC versions of GTA.

I didn't see any GFMFWL and Rockstar's Social Club popped up but you can skip past it.

Overall everything went really smooth. I really didn't touch on any of the gameplay itself because the game has been out for 6 months, plenty of reviews dealing with that aspect. I don't know that I'd recommend it to anyone who already has it for consoles and unless you understand the gameplay (not GTA in 40s) I probably wouldn't even recommend it to anyone who didn't know what they were getting into. But if you're a fan of Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, or the Adventure genre you'll probably want to pick it up.

I've got a bunch of screenshots on my Steam account of the options, menus, and game graphics.
