The hotly anticipated title from Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire brings you to Los Angeles in the 1940s, with the usual kick-ass Rockstar attitude and environment you'd come to expect. Released just last month on May 17th 2011, the game is already doing very well in the sales chart. (Our European friends had to wait till May 20th to check the game out).
Your player character is an LAPD officer named Scott, rising through the rank of the force, where during each rank/level you get partnered up with different partners to investigate and fight various type of crime. This game, unlike previous familiar Rockstar titles such as the GTA franchise, blends mystery and crime solving along with the usual open-space exploration and arsenal of guns to choose from.
