This game is interesting, id check it out, but wouldn't recommend buying it. Driving cars in the game stinks, if you are use to GTA or even MAFIA 2. Shoot outs are fun for the first few times then it gets a bit old...guns can only be used during a small partof each mission, you can t access your weapons on the street, or while driving. The story lines are great with alot of thought. finding clues and interogating suspects are the best part of this game. The game does entertain for a few hours but is easily finished in a weekend. If this game changed the shooting and driving to a GTA style , this game would be AWESOME. but it does not. So just rent it dont buy it like i did.

This game is a totally different type of game Rockstar has ever put out. It is amazing graphics and the capture of 1940's lifestyle is brilliant, but on the other hand it is not an action game. It takes time and focus to get used to the game style. If you have played rockstar games before, give it a try and you might like it.
i rated this game a 9 but i think it's really an 8.7.
to me, after the 1st major story arc ended, the black dahlia murder, it started to get a little boring. the story was still pretty good, the investigating and interrogations were still fun but not as much. i yearned to play a more action packed game like gears of war at times. the gameplay and story didn't grab me like heavy rain did.
the facial expressions are fantastic. the way cole phelps would curl his lips and chin screamed "earnest guy from the 1930s-40s" to me. the fist fights and shoot outs are just like a gta game only a little less clunky but i'm still not a big fan of it. i played 007 bloodstone before this game and i liked the shooting and cover mechanics of that much better.
overall the games worth checking out. i might get it again when the dlc comes out.
oh yeah, i liked the game enough to check out some movies related to the 1930s-40s LA crime dramas and the black dalhia murder. i didn't much care for the black dahlia with josh hartnet but la confidential was great.
