As usual, Rockstar Games is being smart with the marketing for L.A. Noire. While their trademark cinematic trailers are always fun to watch this game requires a little more selling, and what better way than with in-depth gameplay videos?
The first gameplay trailer was just an orientation- here’s a deeper look into how your character will investigate murders and interrogate suspects. It looks like it’s just as deep as we hoped. I can’t be the only person who’s been saddened every time a game boasts crime scene investigations and then finding out that they’re a mere afterthought in the game? (I’m looking at you, Heavy Rain and Condemned.) It’s also still amazing to finally have a game where you’re really going to have to pay attention to the character’s performances (and facial features) to see if they’re lying or not.
Leave it to Rockstar to create a mainstream adventure game.
