Playing a good cop of the LAPD, and solving crimes during the dark times of Los Angeles, makes L.A. Noire one hell of a ride from start to finish.

It was in 2006 when Rockstar Games released a trailer of L.A. Noire, depicting what Los Angeles in 1940’s looks like. After five years, Team Bondi partners with Rockstar Game to release L.A. Noire as a dark and gruesome detective thriller. You will play as Cole Phelps, a former Marine that is heading back home from World War II and is looking for a fresh start in Los Angeles. The City of Angels in 1940’s was having an economical boom, but war veterans are struggling to adapt to changes.

Starting off as a regular patrol cop, you’ll learn more about the game mechanics and how it works. Starting easy, L.A. Noire will hold your hand in learning how to find clues, investigating the evidences carefully and interrogating people involved in the case. After that, you’ll proceed to Traffic cases, Homicide, Vice and then to Arson. Once you’re done with the training, it’s up to you to decide whether the person you’re interrogating is being honest, doubtful to you or just plain lying. But beware that missing certain clues or having the wrong answer won’t open up new leads, and it will possibly make things bit more difficult.
