This being my first review, I(Lewis Manning of [email protected]) decided to choose one of my all-time favourite video games to kick things off – L.A Noire. L.A Noire has been out for just over a year now but is no doubt worthy of a review on this site. Created by Rockstar and Team Bondi, the game puts you in the wing-tipped leather shoes of Cole Phelps – a beat-cop working the streets of Los Angeles in the 1940s. Quickly, however, you find yourself promoted to Detective and working on some of the most brutal crime cases imaginable (though many are based on real-life events). The magic of L.A Noire comes through its ability to deliver such gruesome events in a somewhat magical way through the sheer class of the 40s and the birth of one of the world’s greatest cities.
