L.A. Noire review
20th May 2011
Unique, original, and griping. It's like a cross between Grand Theft Auto 4, and the incredible classic Police Quest. Everything from the incredible facial animations, to the utterly brilliant 1940s L.A setting is just a joy to behold. But, even with all of the pros this game has (and they're are many) - people may be let down by the lack of 'sandbox' style gameplay. Especially those that are expecting L.A Noire be the same, if not very similar to Grand Theft Auto. Just keep in mind, you're a police officer - so, running people over and shooting people in the head will have repercussions.
All in all, this is probably one of the most original games on the market. There is so much attention to detail and thought and care gone into this game, that any 'hardcore gamer' will be able to appreciate the hard work gone into developing this. Just don't expect the world.
