Using groundbreaking new animation technology, MotionScan, that captures every nuance of an actor's facial performance in astonishing detail, L.A. Noire is a violent crime thriller that blends breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience. Search for clues, chase down suspects and interrogate witnesses as you struggle to find the truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.
Amid the post-war boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, Cole Phelps is an LAPD detective thrown headfirst into a city drowning in its own success. Corruption is rampant, the drug trade is exploding, and murder rates are at an all-time high. In his fight to climb the ranks and do what's right, Phelps must unravel the truth behind a string of arson attacks, racketeering conspiracies and brutal murders, battling the L.A. underworld and even members of his own department to uncover a secret that could shake the city to its rotten core.
L.A. Noire is the first videogame to be honored as an Official Selection by the Tribeca Film Festival.

This is a detective game. You look for clues, question witnesses and other persons of interest and you solve crimes. Yes, there's a fair amount of shooting, but Call of Duty this ain't.
Rockstar's open environment and convincing recreation of 1940s Los Angeles are the selling points for this game. You lead your character, Cole Phelps, through a case with threads that run from working as a traffic cop, all they way to a career as a police detective and beyond.
Fans of television shows like Mad Men and Fringe will recognize many of the faces of the characters met along the way!
I liked this game so much, I played it trough twice. Sadly, it's replay-ability is pretty low since you're solving the same crime twice. The interesting part is looking for clues you may have missed: personality traits, background characters, etc.
I'd highly recommend this game for anyone who wants a slower paced, thinking person's game.
Each case you are given you must figure out how to "read people". Sometimes you know a suspect is lying because of the clues you have found... other times you have to "read" the person's behavior. Did the person you are questioning look away when answering, did the person swallow nervously, did those jaws just clench? That is the hardest part of the game, but the great 360 graphics are great and you can "read" expressions and tics.
Now, this game will not be for everyone, but I LOVE it. Now, I have to say this is not one of those games you are likely to play through several times because, like a good murder mystery book, once you figure it out why do it all over again. Also, it is lite in action and heavy on searching for clues and interviewing witnesses and suspects. So, it is a slow game in terms of getting your adrenaline pumping, but it is a great game for synapses firing. It makes you think.
This edition contains every piece of DLC released and it incorporates those additional cases into the flow of the game so they don't feel like ad-ons.
I enjoyed how they wove the main story arc together over the course of the game. Dialogue is well written. Voice acting is great as they used familiar tv/movie actors. Characters are compelling. Setting/time period certainly adds to the experience.
Game play can be annoying at times since the main aspect is being able to piece together clues and try to discern whether people are lying or telling you the truth when you question them. This is where the facial capture tech this game is known for comes into play. Expressions can be obvious enough or too subtle. It can be trial and error to guess the correct answer...especially if you are trying to 5-star a case.
I love Red Dead Redemption and enjoyed the GTA games but knew L.A. Noire was supposed to be a different animal when I bought it. That it was, but I am glad I experienced it.
What the game is - a police procedural set in 1947 Los Angeles where you actually have to go to crime scenes, examine the evidence, interrogate the suspects and solve the crimes. Does it have action? Yes. But it is not a typical Rockstar, fast-twitch action game. Don't get me wrong, I love Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne, but L.A. Noire isn't those games, and to mistake it for them is to do a true disservice to one of the freshest gaming experiences in years. My only hope is that we eventually see a sequel to this wonder.
