"The awesome performances and great facial capture make every interrogation and investigation a riveting affair." -IGN.com

"L.A. Noire is a unique game with a terrific sense of period atmosphere, absorbing investigation mechanics, and a haunting tale with plenty of moments that would be right at home in a classic film noir."- Gamespot.com

Los Angeles, 1947.

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.

Using groundbreaking new animation technology 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.

Game ahead of it's time.

LA Noire is an excellent attempt in providing a truly detective experience, all thanks to new technology implemented by Rockstar that allows NPC to have facial animation which later must be read by the player in order to guess if the interrogated person is lying or not. Overall fun experience.

Become a detective for half a year

I played this game on my Xbox 360, but I assume it is the same game. I found this game entertaining and played it non-stop for quite some time. I really enjoyed the interviewing/interrogation part of witnesses and suspects, digging up information and calling out lies. And then poking around on crime scenes finding clues, this suited my play style to find everything available. The game is set in 1947, so everyone is cool and you get to feel like a badass detective.

Detective work isn't so bad after all

Two things pop out at you when you first play the game: the time setting and the open world. The environment and city setting is build upon the late 1940s, and you can really see the detail everywhere, from the type of cars, to even the houses. Yes, with Rockstar Studios creating the game, it is an open-world game, allowing you to explore the big city. Even though it may seem like a GTA game, the detective gameplay really does work. From investigating crime scenes to find clues, interrogating witnesses, and arresting the suspected murder. One downside is that during the interrogations, I found it hard for some people to see if they're lying, telling the truth, etc.

Worth buying on sale

The game has some unique features like video face capture that really bring it out in front of other detective games. As with all open-world games these days, the gameplay can get a a bit repetitive, so you might not find yourself finishing it. It's still an enjoyable title that has aged well and is worth buying for $15 or less.

Rockstar has done it again!

Runs well, Great graphics, works well with a controller, good story, good gameplay, amazing characters. The game controls and plays similarly to GTA games. Best way to describe this game is it plays like GTA and Telltale games. I like the setting and idea of the game. It is really interesting to see how your decisions play out. Very satisfying playing as a detective who interrogates suspects. This game is on sale often at 75%-80% off. $4-5 for this game is really worth it for this AAA title. Definitely pick it up if you enjoy Rockstar/Telltale games.
