This game is fantastic! Let me say, however, that it is not a super action-oriented game, so those thinking Rockstar is just making a 1947 version of Grand Theft Auto are sadly mistaken. This is the first game I've played that actually looked and felt like an interactive movie.

This game will make you feel like you are a real detective. You investigate crime scenes and interrogate people, looking for clues from your surroundings and people's faces. The use of body language and facial expressions is amazing -- you can tell someone is lying just by the way they are acting!

It's also a pretty long game. In fact, the Xbox 360 version comes on 3 discs! The game starts off somewhat slow, but as you unravel the mysteries and solve cases, it really picks up. Again, though, I want to stress that this is NOT an action game. If you expect it to be then you will be disappointed. It has plenty of action in it, but it is a lot slower paced than a typical action game.

For me, this was a game I've been waiting for since the first Mass Effect. I really enjoyed all of the branching conversations and RPG elements to the storytelling, and I thought "It would be cool if there were a whole game like this that didn't have to have hours of run and gun in between the conversations." L.A. Noire is closer to that game idea than any game I've played before, and I really enjoyed it. If that sounds boring to you, well then this game might not be your cup of tea. If, however, you like a lot of meat to your storytelling and enjoy adventure games, you'll probably love this.

I loved nearly every aspect of the game, from the story line, gameplay, all the way down to the characters. It was nice to play a unique game where can interrogate them and decide if they are lying or not. This game was well made, i did not come across many flaws, but i did run into a bug every now and then where i would have to restart from check or redo the case. Other than those and few other minor complaint, the long storytelling and great gameplay kept me entertained till the very end.

L.A. NOIRE is one of the best cop free world game EVER!!!!!
you get to be on the traffic desk,homicide desk,vice desk,and arson desk.(HOUSE FIRE) the 2 things i dont like is i wish that it was modern times then the 1940's and second the cop cars have sirens but no flashing lights, but over all L.A.NOIRE is one of the best games evveer made. :)
