Add Rock Star's new release LA Noire to your collection

Rock Star the developers for addictive games like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, recently launched it's newest title LA Noire.  This game has the same sort of feeling during game play as Grand Theft Auto only the player gets more involved with the story by solving cases and trying to understand characters rather then spending hours driving around aimlessly. But for auto enthusiast, dont worry they got you covered, snatch as many cars as you want if you want to earn that medal. LA Noire's story takes place during 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.

LA Noire is a violent crime thriller and does contain scenes that are definitely adult content. I would not recommend this for children under 16. What you will find unique about this game is the entertainment factor beacuse you feel like you are controlling a movie not playing a game. In addition, each character has their own facial expressions and you have to figure out if the person is lying to you or telling the truth as you try to solve cases and advance the story. This game is definitely addicting if you enjoy role playing games that host a challenge. If you are the kind of person who must grab all the trophy's and medals and solve the cases 100% correct then, Rock Star added a Social Club to the game play that allows you to connect online with other players and grab advice on how to interrogate your suspects that will help you solve the crimes.

As a native from LA I'm giving this the thumbs up, Rock Star really did their homework and gave us a game that really looks and feels like post World War 2 LA. The amount of details both in the script, map and game play really make this game out of the ordinary.
