This game was pretty fun I must say. lol while I played the game I actually felt like a real police officer/detective!
You do many crime scenes, interogate many people. Sometimes it gets kind of repetitive but its fun! And the facial features theyve put into the characters are so detailed, you can axctually almost tell by facial expressions if someone is lying or telling the truth.

It's worth renting! [:

Probably my 2nd favorite game from gamefly behind dishonored.

Pros-
- The storyline is fairly interesting. Puts you in a position almost opposite from all the other games you play, and is a good change in pace.
- Interviews and Interrogations that actually affect what happens later in the case really make you think rather than just rush through.
-The old LA environment is an extremely unique one that you'll just want to drive around in.
-Side missions are fun and interesting to watch.

Cons
- Some cases can get boring/frustrating.
- Not for the faint of heart, some cases can get pretty gruesome. If you're very uncomfortable with blood, this game is not for you.
- The open world isn't very interactive, all you can do is basically chase more bad guys.

what can i say about this game. Well for certain that my father an intellectual pc gamer who enjoys myst and mutiple others of their ilk will love this game. but ya know what? i do too, its a wonderful blend of detective and rpg with a little bit of action thrown in for spice. but there is enough meat to this game to really get into. exploring dark corners, searching for clues with smooth jazz playin in the background and only ur instincts to guide you. helpfully ur instincts take the form of musical cues and controller vibrations. also i love the polite way that you can jack everyones cars, and for once i am able to make a 24 car traffic jam without cars freakin dissapearing.... although i will say that it is tough finding 95 different cars that to me all look freakin identical

the attention to detail and refined, slow paced deliberate sense of the game is a real change from that which other games attempt to cultivate. i for one enjoy really thinking out whats happening and taking my time.

a surreal yet starkly visceral adventure like white water rapids, at times mild and at times violently thrilling this is a tremendous effort that delivers on almost all fronts.

The facial reconstructions are so magnificant that you are simply willing to overlook simple flaws such as frame rate stuttering and some minor environmental glitches. while mass effect 2 is far more advanced graphically in other areas, it is the only thing i can compare this game to in terms of facial

the ability for characters to portray emotion borders on unbelievable, and never before realized in any game. this is very important due to the fact that as a cop your job is to interogate and investigate. many times it will be your reading of a person that will determine how things unfold.

Similar to heavy rain yet with just a bit of gta allows you to unfold the events as though a movie. set aside some time for this one however as its 3 disks long. or maybe i should say 3 disks awsome.
