Gamers looking for something different from the market should rejoice at the release of Rockstar Games’ “L.A. Noire,” as the title delivers a unique and innovative experience with stellar graphics and a compelling plot.
Set against the iconic imagery of 1940s Los Angeles, the title follows World War II veteran Cole Phelps as he ascends the ranks within the LAPD’s detective division.
While Rockstar may be best known for delivering action-packed, sandbox-style games including the massively popular Grand Theft Auto franchise, “L.A. Noire” isn’t a title designed to rev up your heart rate. Instead, the game calls on players to use their best investigative techniques and intellect as they try and solve a series of crimes ranging from vehicular homicide to arson.
