I had to put a 10 to cancel out all those people who are going to give it a bad rating after realizing this is not grand theft auto:LA, yes there is a huge open detailed city but you are a detective and an enforcer of the law so no mayhem and chaos. La noire feels kind of like heavy rain, only with more responsibility to the player. My actual rating would be a 9, its a nice vacation from other genres of games, but the game can get repetitive, and after a while I felt like I had aquired a second job as a police officer, that may be good or bad for some people. Overall this is a must play for all gamers, mature gamers that Is.

Before reading this review I feel I should inform you that I want to be a detective so I do have a bias opinion With that said.
You start beat cop then advance to Traffic desk after that there is Homicide Desk then Vice then Arson.
This game is awesome. The technology that Team Bondi used in the game really shows in the actors. I have never played a game quite like this one. Heavy Rain is the closest i have come to but that is about as close as New York is to Cali. There is a little bit for everyone in the game. The story line focus on Searching and Interrogation. If you are looking for a Shooting game this is not for you. Now calm down there are shoot outs and foot/car chases as well and there are side missions if you decide that you want to do them.
The bad about L.A. Noire is the targeting system is bad it is just a white dot. With some of the things that happen (hostage situation) it would be better. Also there is some repetitiveness in the game but they have the side missions so I jsut do a few of those once I feel that way.
All in all I think this is an awesome game and it is very long im about 20 hours ( 18 i believe) and im only at the second of the four desk.
