When i got this game I thought it would just be cop shows on tv, but this is a thousand times better. You don't just look over a crime scene for clues, you look over a crime scene for evidence you wouldn't expect to be there that sooner or later makes or breaks the case. Also In L.A. Noire you have the ability to ask questions, this is a rare thing to see in games, but the questions come with a twist! You have to judge whether the person is telling the truth or not. Also there are street crimes from suicidal people to bank robbers that you have to deal with (If you want to).
