PC, PS3, Xbox 360
Wonderful, engaging story.
Special cars are fun to drive around.
Brilliant voice acting.
Vast area to explore.
A bit short, even with DLC.
Reactions are a little overacted.
LA Noire is a great game. It takes a GTA-like formula but spins it on its head and lets you place as the enforcement side rather than the bad guys. There are very few games that are as deep and contain such a great story as LA Noire, so even though the reactions are a bit goofy at times, the game is well worth getting.
