Long description

Pre-order bonus DLC: “The Broderick” Detective Suit (and Exclusive Pistol)

This suit boosts your fist-fighting capabilities and resilience to damage. Throughout L.A. Noire while working cases, you’ll encounter quite a few suspects and persons of interest who prove to be resistant to arrest. Your hand-to-hand fighting skills will be called into action on these cases – the Broderick suit with its enhanced fighting abilities may be that edge in helping make that collar.

Amid the post-war boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, Cole Phelps is an LAPD detective thrown headfirst into a city drowning in its own success. Corruption is rampant, the drug trade is exploding, and murder rates are at an all-time high. In his fight to climb the ranks and do what’s right, Phelps must unravel the truth behind a string of arson attacks, racketeering conspiracies and brutal murders, battling the L.A. underworld and even members of his own department to uncover a secret that could shake the city to its rotten core.

Using groundbreaking new animation technology that captures every nuance of an actor's facial performance in astonishing detail, L.A. Noire is a violent crime thriller that blends breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience. Search for clues, chase down suspects and interrogate witnesses as you struggle to find the truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.

Developed by Team Bondi in conjunction with Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire arrives for PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360® on May 17th 2011 in North America and May 20th 2011 in Europe.

Great Game

Having loads of fun with this game.

LA NOIRE PS3

This is the type of game u play if u want to be the good guy and like games were a problem solving skill is a must. Gameplay is old school but quiet fun driving to the locations of the crime and interviewing the suspects.

Don't expect a GTA Clone here

If you've seen LA Noire in action, you'd probably noticed that it's set in sandbox world with cars, gunfights and police car chases. Sounds very familiar to GTA IV right? I mean Rockstar published LA Noire as well so that must mean it's a GTA Clone? Fortunately, this isn't the case. LA Noire is a mostly linear story-centric game based in Los Angeles shortly after the end of World War II. You play as Detective Cole Phelps, a former marine who now works for the LAPD. What's truly amazing about LA Noire is the facial expressions which the characters have. It's not only there for aesthetic purposes, it serves to compliment the Interrogation sequences which you play through as Cole. The story is beautifully crafted, linking seemingly unrelated characters to each other throughout the game and leaving behind a suprising conclusion. The city of LA does feel empty though, outside of the story missions and random crimes to pursue, there isn't much to do in LA. In the end if you're looking for a game with a strong and engaging story, LA Noire is that game for you.

Not what i expected

The game becomes a bore,you spend most of the time driving,i expected more action,not what you with expect from a rockstar game...the ivestigation part is quite nice keeps you intrigued for awhile but you get bored of that to
