Excerpt: As a game, L.A. Noire—developed by Team Bondi (in collaboration with Rockstar Leeds) and published by Rockstar Games in 2011—is an intriguing combination of the popular Grand Theft Auto series formula and traditional point-and-click adventure game mechanics. While there are plenty of intense shooting, driving, chasing, and fighting sequences throughout the game, the player must also solve logic puzzles, interrogate suspects, and pore over crime scenes.
Excerpt: Team Bondi's detective game, L. A. Noire, is remarkable when it comes to its groundbreaking visuals and character models. However, it's not so impressive when it comes to violence and language.
Pros: Excellent graphics and character animations.
