L.A. Noire is a beautiful tale of the grime that lurks just below the surface.
There are 4 main types of gameplay at work here the first is investigation, the second is interrogation, the third is car chases, and the fourth is gunfights. The first and second forms mentioned make up the meat of the game with 90% of the game consisting solely of walking around, picking things up, and talking to people. The gunplay and driving could both be improved, but they both occur so infrequently and can be skipped that it is hardly considered a real negative. The biggest issue I have with the gameplay is the "Truth, Doubt, Lie" function. The majority of the time you'll be going out on a whim if you doubt or lie. The best you can do is choose lie first to see where Cole takes it, and if you didn't mean to head that direction choose doubt instead. Also a lot of the time what you need to present for lie will be a toss up for 2 items and the one you choose probably won't be it even though it could work. The fact is though I can't think of any way to solve the issues it has.
This is what the game is about. I don't want to spoil anything about the story, but just remember to never take a single thing you hear at face value not even the character you play. The set up is you play as Cole Phelps a war hero turned LAPD detective in the mid-late 40's. One of the best qualities of this game is the writing of all of the characters. Every single aspect of the characters was clearly taken and cared for to be formed into one of the best experiences that can be given to anyone who is willing to look one step deeper.
Limited repeated tracks with hit-or-miss voice recordings (some people sound like they were recorded in a cardboard box while standing in the middle of the street) leave much to be desired.
*30 FPS locked
*Lots of random stutter
*Large wonderful but shallow overwold.
If Phoenix Wright had an affair with the 40's this game would be what pops out. And I loves meself some Phoenix Wright. L.A. Noire deserves to be on the forefront of anyone's "to-play" list if you have a marginal interest in Noire or love a good story.
