4.0 out of 5 stars great game, but not for the impatient, 21 May 2011
By 
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: L.A. Noire (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Truly a great game, great period setting and atmosphere, wonderful facing animation. Add a rich narrative and you have what is obsensibly as interactive LA Confidential.

The rinse and repeat of the games structure can be explained simply....thats what a detective presumably does, look for evidence, interview, chase down suspects. The structure of this is integral to the game. (People dont complain about Call of Duty as all you do is shoot people do they?)

Well worth investing, but buyer beware, this is an adult game, its not GTA. Its slow paced, thoughtful, has minimal action and much like the brilliant Red Dead Redemption, may bore some gamers after a fast paced action experience.

Can anyone explain why this is an 18, beyond as you say here that it is quite complicated. Is there content or graphics not suitable for under 18s ? or would you say its not too bad ?

its a deserved 18 cert for a number of reasons. Although theres not much on screen gore compared to something like Saw, you still have to do gruesome tasks like examine the naked body of a recently deceased murder victim.
But the main reason is the story is dark and brooding and some of the unsavory characters you come across. The themes covered by this game include drugs, murder, prostitution and worse. All these are dealt with responsibly and in an adult way but the makers of this fine game, (probably rightly) felt that younger gamers shouldnt be exposed to this.
Its certainly the most 'grown up' game ive played.
I hope this helps.
