Gameplay for LA Noire is pretty straightforward. You are called to crime scene and quickly explained as to what happened. From a simple kidnapping, to catching a serial killer, the story of LA Noire brings many twists and turns you will need to somehow predict and control. Thankfully for us, the game has some amazing technology to help us out.

LA Noire's ground breaking cameras capture every single facial expression the actors portray. From sadness, to happiness, to signaling that the person you're questioning is hiding something, everybody is hiding something on the path to truth.

Through audio cues as well, players will be able to know when they've found a clue, or when they've guessed correctly in response to a question. If you've ever wanted to be detective, virtually of course, now's the time to do so.

The game has been re-released on Xbox One, PS4, and Switch. Enjoy your time in LA, you don't know how long it'll last!
