Work your way up through the ranks of the 1947 L.A. police department in "L.A. Noire" for the PlayStation 3. Deal with politics, corruption, and more than a hint of scandal while still finding time to fight crime. This video game revolves around Cole Phelps, a WWII veteran and new recruit to the Los Angeles Police Department. Phelps starts off as a uniformed patrolman. The story follows him as he becomes a detective and advances through the levels of the police department. "L.A. Noire" was developed by Team Bondi and published by Rockstar Games in 2011. Its cinematic style is based on noir films from the 1940s and '50s. The hard-boiled crime genre has previously never been tried before in a PS3 game. It is an action-adventure game with an ESRB rating of M (Mature). The main gameplay of "L.A. Noire" is made up of 21 cases. The cases are spread across five desks that represent the police department's divisions, including homicide and arson. On each case, Phelps is assigned to a different partner, each of whom has their own distinctive motivations. You will be asked to search crime scenes as well as the homes of the victims for clues. At the end of the case, players receive a rating based on how well they did. An important component of the game is interrogations. You can question witnesses and suspects in order to judge how trustworthy they are. The game will then give you three options: truth, doubt, or lie. If you guess correctly, the person will give you more information. However, if you wrongly accuse a person of lying, they won't give you very much information. Make the wrong decision repeatedly, and the case will be more difficult to solve. Events can change based on the choices you make. You can replay a case once it is over to find out where different choices will lead you. "L.A. Noire" has an open-world environment, which allows you to explore the streets of 1940s Los Angeles. The setting of the PS3 title was recreated with an attention to detail. The cars, clothes, buildings, and music all feel authentic to the time period. There is even an option to play the entire game in black and white. In addition to the main cases, there are 40 short, action-based missions that you can take on. These include stopping bank robberies and shadowing criminals. Car chases, foot chases, and shootouts are also key parts of the game. Players can take cover and use the aim-assist option, which makes it easy to target your foes. The characters in "L.A. Noire" for the PS3 were created using MotionScan technology. This method uses a number of cameras to capture an actor's facial expressions. As a result, the characters' facial movements and body language seem more realistic than in video games with traditional animation. This is especially important in the interrogation scenes in which you have to judge if a person is lying.
