Play Magazine: L.A. Noire is a difficult game to review. On the one hand you’ve got an undeniably rich, polished and progressive title that explores territory that videogames have never ventured into before, on the other you’ve got a game that’s somewhat handholding, certainly repetitive, and that occasionally fumbles over its own internal logic. The question that requires answering here is, do the more impressive elements of L.A. Noire negate those small, niggling faults? Is L.A. Noire a game that’s more than merely handsome? Or, like the LA setting itself, is there something uglier residing beneath?
