Review – L.A Noire

LA Noire

It’s a thundering, rainy evening. I pull up to a crime scene with my partner, the tyres of the car squelching to a stop in the wet mud.

A shocked witness sits nearby beneath an umbrella, ready for questioning. It’s time to get my hands dirty and solve another gruesome case. This is LA Noire.

I can’t wait to see this in action in the full game, but until then I’ll just have to be content with seeing amazing videos like this one:
