"When I first glimpsed L.A. Noire a while back, I was very intrigued; in fact, after I saw the first trailer, the need for an open-world traditional detective game seemed pressing - in essence, L.A. Noire had both created and filled a niche in my mind. I won’t lie, though, when I say that I was also hesitant to unconditionally embrace the game without raising an eyebrow. On one hand, I am not the biggest fan of Grand Theft Auto; on the other, I really enjoyed the charm of Red Dead Redemption. Where would Rockstar’s latest brainchild fit in the spectrum for me?"
