L.A Noire was one of my most anticipated games of 2011. I was really looking forward to cracking cases and exploring L.A and returning to my favorite genre, the adventure game but the gameplay falls flat.
The graphics looks great and how the faces works together with the gameplay is really interesting, too bad they couldn't get decent acots or have a good director to direct the actors, overacting is the biggest problem here! And the gameplay is really limited to three choices. The adventure aspects of the game isn't much to write home about. As you mostly looks around for clues that points you i your next direction, no interesting puzzles of the old kind. L.A Noire also has alot of action secqunces as every chapters ends with a shootout. Usually how well you do inte cases doesn't matter for your progress, somehow the police allways finds the real culprit. If the game wanted to focus nmore of the adventure aspect of questioning and obtaining clues every chapter should have ended with deduction or a trial. But instead the developers took the eaqsy way out and made action sequnces instead.
L.A Noire is a game that doesn't know what it wants to be
