L.A. Noire (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Really fun to play, different kinds of gameply, authentic
Disadvantages: certain bits drag on, slow in parts, some interrogation parts are almost impossible.
The British games developers Rockstar know how to make a good game, even if they are all set in the US, and LA Noire is no exception.
The game puts you in the shoes of a rookie detective working his way up the ranks of the 1950s LA police force, by solving crimes, collecting evidence and questioning criminaly, not to mention driving around a beautifully designed historically accurate LA map, that is huge, in beautiful classic cars.
The game play can become slow at times, especially when you have to drive for 15 minutes to get to a crime scene. However the storylines are very engaging and the constant cameos from actors you recognise from the TV is entertaining, the character you play is played by an actor who stars in Mad Men. There are a few gruesome bits and you have to really test your patience when questioning the suspects because often it will take multiple tries to get the information you need, and sometimes they wont give it to you at all.
The play is broken up by optional random police missions which involve shoot outs and action, but the bread and butter of the game is slow methodical police work, which is an interesting change. Its a very refreshing concept for a game, and a great start though it could be improved as it is boring in parts and immensely difficult in others, which can be good if your up for a challenge.
All in all a really great game, but we will have to wait for something even better out of rockstar next time for a possible sequel!
Summary: Lots of different aspects, action and thought needed with a great story line and real actors
