Conclusion: For one, you play as an L.A.P.D. detective named Cole Phelps, sworn to protect the people of post-war Los Angeles. He’s not the type to endanger civilian lives or even pull his out his gun unless absolutely necessary.
Excerpt: With Vivid environments and character graphics bringing a new edge to gaming, L.A Noire from Rockstar Games makes another solid contribution to gaming entertainment. Making an amazing game even better by bringing a goodly amount of DLC.
Excerpt: I need to start off by letting you know that L.A. Noire is not Grand Theft Auto with you on the side of the law for a change. In fact, the game has more in common with classic adventure games than it does with Rockstar's flagship open world franchise. You're going to spend far more time speaking with people and slowly combing crime scenes than you will in shoot-outs and car chases. If you're just looking for the latter, then you're better off looking elsewhere.
Conclusion: L.A. Noire is one of the better games I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing and playing in a long time for a console system. It’s a great take on the genre and offers gamers something a little more realistic than blowing away half the city on a rampage like you would in GTA IV (which can be quite fun). The period authenticity, the new graphic enhancements and the fantastic story make for a surefire winner. You’ll definitely want to put this game at the top of your list.
Conclusion: L.A. Noire is a very different game, but that is what Rockstar has come to be famous for; tackling types of games that other companies would avoid. The facial technology is so advanced in this game that its borders on true realism. The line is starting to blur between video games and movies and this game is a prime example of the new trend.
