    Video Review: Despite Ambitious Premise, L.A. Noire Disappoints

    I had high hopes for L.A. Noire. Everything about the game seemed to promise a genre-mixing blend of quick burst action sequences intertwined with methodically paced detective work.

Unfortunately the entire game isn’t perfected to a T, a problem which can typically be ignored when the overall experience is satisfying. However, the fault of L.A. Noire is that its main mechanic is the also the most flawed.

If you become engrossed in the story and just want to see unfold, this probably won't be an issue, but those looking to solve complex logical puzzles are going to be disappointed.LA Noire does do a lot of things well. The technology on display is wonderful, accurately capturing the details of facial movement to a amazing degree of believability, and the atmospheric qu...
