Thoughts on L.A. Noire

I recently got the new video game L.A. Noire for the xbox 360.  My thoughts on it is that this game is a great story.  Cole Phelps who reminds me a bit of Dragnet's classic Joe Friday because Cole has the same values as Friday had.  Anyways the action is great, the acting is great too, this game was the first game to be featured the Tribeca Film Festival as well.  

Help me down the crooked road. Lead me to the light. I'm not sure I know the way but with you beside me, I'm certain we'll make it through.

Re: Thoughts on L.A. Noire

 I share the same feelings for LA Noire. Yes, I am a little late on the uptake here. I just bought the game a week ago and I am currently on Disc 3: Arson. Rockstar did a fantastic job with the story, acting and the graphics. I did favor the Homicide portion of the game but the story really flows from each investigation. I also picked up Rockstar's Collected Stores that go hand in hand with some of the character of the game. You might want to check it out!
