Before release, L.A. Noire garnered such huge attention due to the fact it was a Rockstar game (the same folks that made the Grand Theft Auto series, as well as the excellent Red Dead Redemption). It was also to feature the new 'facial capture' technology to give realistic expressions to the in game characters.
Anyhow, upon release, this flew off the shelves as you'd expect, but the feedback and reviews were very mixed. Personally, I did enjoy the game. However, I did miss driving around wreaking havoc as you would in the GTA games, but hey - you're the police in this game rather than a criminal so it's understandable! I must admit that I also found the game slightly repetitive at times (especially in the Homicide missions where all the cases seem to require you to do the same things every time). But with that said, there's a genuinely great storyline and involving gameplay with the realistic graphics, as well as an interesting interrogation system which adds to the suspense of trying to follow the correct line of questioning to solve the cases you're given as a detective.
All in all, this game will certainly eat hours of your time away, but it's not quite as awe inspiring as the highs set by previous Rockstar games. Still, worth a punt I'd say!
