Why LA Noire is Worth It

I’m almost finished with LA Noire, and I have to say the game is truly worth it.

One of the best features is the different desks that Detective Phelps works throughout the game. So far he’s been a beat cop, worked traffic, homicide, vice and arson. Each segment of the game is similiar, but it’s got a different tone and different music to keep things fresh.

In addition, there are plot lines that weave through the different stories, narrative vignette that would probably drive any hardcore gamer insane, but draw me into the story. These long-term plot lines also serve to keep the gameplay from becoming stale, giving each case a new context.

Hey Rockstar, when will this go Kinect?
