Sounds like a lot of work. Is there no option for fast travel?


There is a Train that takes you to major settlements but honestly I just don't know what his problem is with the map one of my favourite things was riding around on my horse getting to an fro missions and side quests. Obviously towards the end getting all the way across the map can be a hassle but like I said there is a train or you could just be like me and not let it bother you much mainly because the map is big but it isn't huge or anything, I personally was hoping it was going to be a bit bigger but it really just seems bigger because your riding around on a horse or when you have to take certain avenues to places because of a cliff.

Yes, there is an option for fast travel to known locations, but there are quests or side missions that require you to travel around or explore the map, like hunting a number of certain exotic animals which requires a lot of reloading and traveling back and forth or simply find all locations on the map...etc. Doing all that before the main quest wore off the novelty for me.

Overall I'm enjoying this game so far but find the investigation/interrogation can get a bit too boring mostly because the difference between doubt/truth seem too random. I've just finished the homicide desk and find the vice desk to be much funner :P
I would rate this game high but nowhere near the calibre of the GTA series. I'll try Red Dead Redemption after this game is finished.

As hyped as I was for this game, I'm with some of you guys - it was one of the most boring, repetitive games I've ever played, and I never bothered to finish it.

What a letdown.

The game is honestly a chore at some points. Some fun parts but lots of annoying parts. Hate when Cole does something unexpected.

Yeah I was really looking forward to this game, even pre-ordered for the first time. Sold it after a couple weeks, I almost felt like I was forcing myself to play at times just so my money wouldn't go to waste.

I'm just about finished this game. I think overall it is a solid game, though not perfect. The answers to the interrogations are often too random, or approach an exercise of splitting hairs. I think this detracts from otherwise what would be a very very good game. Evidence gathering I find to be too tedious. Really wish there was more action sequences. This game had potential to become legendary but IMO Rockstar dropped the ball.

Game would be good if the actions you did actually mattered. I'm about 5-6 missions in, and everything seems to same but I'd still like to finish it for the hell of it. There really isn't any other game worth checking out at the moment, that I've haven't already tried.

I started out in love with this game...now, three cases in on the traffic desk, I'm bored. And I've got hours of this to go! It's so repetitive, and the interviews are tedious.

IMO, the Vice desk is the best part of the game. Traffic and homicide were pretty boring.

Man, i finally just started playing this and boy am i glad i didnt pay full price when it first came out. I've never been so bored in my life. Like someone else said it feels almost like a chore when playing this. I can see how some people might like it but for me, it's just so repetative and tedious and when you get an answer wrong it just feels like WTF did i just spend all this time looking for clues and listening to these stories for ? Glad i didnt pay for this, i think ill delete it pretty soon.

Makes me want GTA5 to hurry up and get here though !

I was much too lazy to read through all of those paragraphs, but g_bassi, if you dig westerns, you definitely have to get RDR

I haven't played through a single player game in years, but I loved, loved, loved RDR. I'm pretty sure I just wandered around for 5 hours before completing the game, because I didn't want it to end. If I remember correctly, I did every side quest as well. I may have missed one or two along the way, but just because I loved the environment so much, I found each quest to be interesting and rewarding in its own way, just because it was more time spent in that little world.

For what it's worth, I was only able to play 2 or 3 hours of the last GTA before I got bored. But damn, RDR was right up my alley.

I still haven't picked up LA Noire, lol. Was too busy playing Skyrim for a few months, and right after I finished it, Mass Effect 3 came out. That game was so disappointing (mainly because of the ending) that it managed to remove any motivation to play anything for the last month after "beating" it. But LA Noire will be the next game I play, I think.

If they ever port it to PC, I would probably go out and buy RDR. I don't have a console to play it on though. At this point I've pretty much had most of the game (including the ending) spoiled, but it's still something I want to play through myself.

Also, GTA IV... I tried finishing it again a couple of months ago, but I gave up... again. There's just something about the game that makes it so bland.

I think it is called age, not only ours but the gameplay mechanics too, we have been there and done that before so it is not as entertaining as it use to be. Lots of the missions are the same just with different context and as much fun as driving around creating chaos is it eventually runs its course. I personally have beat it 2 times I think but I own the game and enjoy the franchise(GTA:SA was the best), plus for a while I had a severe lack of games.

My brother just picked up this game for a $20 used. What a steal! It's fantastically captivating, very hard to put down.
