L.A. Noire (PS3, 2011)

Overview


Dressed to kill.December, 1947, Los Angeles. Rain had been trying to scrub the city clean for a week, but sometimes I think Noah’s flood wouldn’t be enough to do this town justice. I was sitting in my darkened office, taking the last drag off a heater down to its filter, too broke to buy a new pack or pay the bill to turn on the lights, but that didn't matter. Not for a private detective sitting across the desk from lovely Lola LaSalle, a dame with all the right curves, and all the wrong reasons for coming to a guy like me. A sweet country girl, Lola, or she had been before the dreams of rising stardom she followed west from Iowa fell under the weight of Hollywood’s millstone. I could see the story in her watery blue eyes, grim as the downpour outside in that baby-doll face, as she told me all about her roommate that had gone missing last night. I’d heard her story a hundred times before… after all, her story, and others like it, are the only reason a gumshoe like me can make it in L.A. Noire

This is the City…

Los Angeles… City of glamour dreams and dirty alleys. Every dame’s a rising starlet, and there’s a story in every empty booze bottle. The streets of L.A. Noire are mean and unforgiving, and it’s up to newly minted detective Cole Phelps to bring the Sword of Justice down on the necks of the criminals and gangsters that rule the streets. The question is, though, who can you trust, when half the department’s on the pad, and the other half’s burnt out after too long seeing justice gone undone? Take a look at the review, and maybe you’ll find the clues you need to find out
