L.A. Noire: Bringing A New Level Of Quality | Review (Hooked Gamers)

Two years ago, gamers didn’t think much of L.A. Noire. Its development was veiled in secrecy and shrouded in a toxic cloud of rumours.

Graphics are not every thing other wise The Witcher 2 would gain only 10s on the PC.
It is by far the most cool looking game on the PC right now and only Crysys 2 can match it.
