this game is incredible. though, it is similar to Grand Theft Auto, in the sense that you go around and do different missions, but it is different, in the fact that you are a cop. i was actually thinking, "why aren't there any good games where you play as a cop?" But with LA Noir, you go around 1940's Los Angelas, solving different casses, and working up the ranks as a detective, in the best game of 2011
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).
