New Game Network: "L.A. Noire is a different kind of game. Not just because it was published by Rockstar Games, who are well known for their open world action titles, but rather due to the game’s unique nature of both presentation and gameplay mechanics. Set in a fully realized city of Los Angeles in 1947, L.A. Noire presents a very detailed world to explore, not unlike other Rockstar titles, but things are different. Taking on the role of a police officer Cole Phelps, players will rise through the ranks of LAPD, mainly spending their time investigating crimes around the city. This involves interrogating suspects, which the game uses to its full potential thanks to amazing new facial animation technology."
