First let me say I picked up LA Noire on PS3 release day and loved it. That being said during my playthrough my PS3 died and I had to pickup a slim. This happened around the time that the PC version was announced. After listening to Rockstar say that it would not just be a port and would include all DLC I decided to wait to start another play through.
I guess after the crap Rockstar pulled with the terrible port of GTA IV and not releasing RDR for PC I shouldn't be shocked but the port is just terrible. See below:
- The game is capped at 30 FPS due to the face tech, which is bad enough.
- They didn't work on making the game full screen at higher resolutions (1920x1200 and during the cut scenes take about haf the screen up with huge black bars on the top and bottom, and there are black bars during gameplay).
- Terrible pop in with buildings and such while driving.
- The worst offense by far is that the game is so unstable. I can be driving where stuff is loading at a fast pace and stay at a steady 30 FPS, but I might be running after someone and the game drops down to an unplayable 5 FPS.
Honestly if this is the quality we can expect from Rockstar bringing their games to PC I just hope they stop making PC games. Say what you want about other devs and publishers forsaking the PC, but none are worse than Rockstar.
