L. A. Noire makes me very much fun with the HTC VIVE and the port into a VR game Rockstar succeeded well. The graphics are good, the sound is good, the weapon handling is very good, the performance is super (i5 6600k, gtx980ti, 16gb ddr4, win10 ) and...
the driving is great. That's why I give you a buy recommendation. But there is 1 point deduction for the fact that the game only works with the Vive (harms the already very small VR market) and for the many short interruptions, which disturb the immersion a bit.
Who, like me, thought there is no 'free locomotion', let's say: Free locomotiom is possible and that is when the movement in the game is set to 'Automatically'! It was only a head controlled free movement but at least it exists. br>
EDIT: Most of the problems have been fixed by a patch, so the score is upgraded to 9 points. Thanks Rockstar! br>
