I had my hopes high for LA when I first heard about it and I am pleased to say that once again they have outdone what I expected. They never cease to amaze. But we are not controlling a drug dealing thug running around shooting people this time around. Now we are on the other team. U control Cole Phelps, am up and coming beat cop who just got back from combat in WWII. He is trying to make a name for his self and u get to watch as he progresses from beat cop to homicide/vice/arson detective. And he has his job cut out for him in the crime filled streets of Los Angeles. LA is huge and they did a great job in creating a huge city with all kinds of landmarks and secrets hidden everywhere. As u go thru the game u will need to find evidence to solve crimes. Lack of evidence could lead u to make a false arrest or delay u from getting the bad guy. U must interrogate suspects and witnesses. This is the new and very tricky part. As u ask ur suspect questions u must pay close attention to their facial expressions to determine whether or not they are telling the truth or not. Some are much harder than others and trust me u are gonna get some wrong. U have 3 options to choose from after each question. Truth, Doubt and Lie. If u think they are lying but lack evidence to prove ur theory u wanna choose doubt and lie if u got evidence to throw in their face. Its amazing how real this game looks. From the expressions on peoples faces to the smoke coming from one smoking a cigarette its beautiful. Top of the line graphics. U also have a vast array of old school vehicles to choose from. The story is quite long and there are plenty of goodies to find and side missions. However, since u ARE a cop, u can no longer go around popping caps in civilians. In fact, the only time u can even use a gun is if u are in a gunfight with a criminal. Kinda sucks but hey U ARE A COP. Running over civilians will affect ur overall score for that particular case ur working on. This is a new window that Rockstar has opened that I hope others will learn from. Very fun and addictive. I recommend to any fan of Rockstar North which should be everyone. Congrats to Rockstar North for yet another classic!!!
At the outset, I'm going to warn you that this isn't GTA. It was never supposed to be GTA, and I'm tired of hearing people say, "This is lame, GTA was so much better." This is a game about upholding the law and being a... Read Full Review
It's been 7 years since the beginning of what we know as 'L.A. Noire'. It's been a pretty rough development cycle for both Take-Two and Team Bondi, as financial issues and constant changes were made to a game that we wer... Read Full Review
