L.A. Noire is a gritty, single player detective game set on the infamous streets and in the smoke-filled back rooms of post-war Los Angeles. Designed and developed with a nod to the classic film noire movie genre, L.A. Noire blends crystal clear graphics that bring the iconic look and feel of the era to life, with a combination of innovative technology and unique gameplay that allow you to solve crimes through interrogations and investigation. Additional features include: five LAPD based crime desks to work, the ability to analyse the case as well as suspects for clues, an accurate block-by-block recreation of eight sq miles of 1947 Los Angeles, multiple difficulty settings and more.
Amid the postwar boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, newly minted detective Cole Phelps is thrown headfirst into a city drowning in violence and corruption. Utilising groundbreaking new technology that captures 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. Interrogate witnesses, search for clues and chase down suspects as you struggle to find the truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.
Against an overarching plot of violence and betrayal, L.A. Noire challenges players to solve a series of self-contained cases as they work their way through the ranks of the LAPD. Each case features a distinct storyline with a beginning, middle and end, and each successfully solved case brings new challenges and leads Cole closer to the true story at the dark heart of the Los Angeles criminal underworld.

LA Noire is a strange game. It has so much potential and yet it never quite fully reaches it. Rockstar are fantastic game developers (just take a look at the Grand Theft Auto franchise, namely number 5 which is a bit of a gaming masterpiece), but LA Noire just does not quite match up.
The premise is good. A new cop works his way up the ranks deciphering different cases, looking at crime scenes and bodies, collecting clues and interviewing suspects, coming to the players own conclusion. There are right and wrong answers, but a lot of the game is down to the players own judgement, which is great.
The problem, however, is the stupidly long cutscenes, the far too extended dialogue and the lack of intense action. It is so, so easy to grow bored during the game that you cannot play it for too long at a time, so actually completing the game takes what feels like forever. The game at times seems more like a television programme than an action game, and people should take that into account before purchasing it.
Only slightly irritating thing is you're in the city and if you travel so far in any given direction on the map you will eventually hit a road block and not be able to go any further. I don't know why I hate this so much, the world just feels enclosed and it makes free playing in the game quite dull as there isn't anywhere to go beyond the town. However the map is quite big and takes a bit of time to explore. All in all, great game.
The game draws you in well and is very addictive.Well worth buying.
I has a bit of action, a lot of puzzle solving, thinking, emotion. It's like playing a film.

The observations of small details have made me paranoid and overly cautious now.
