Latest L.A. Noire trailer overviews in-game mechanics



4:20 PM on 02.09.2011

Unsure about L.A. Noire in any way, shape, or form? Watch this! It's a lengthy trailer that runs down, well, what Team Bondi's open-world game is actually like, outside of its character's facial expressions.

The bits and pieces of footage shown so far haven't been terribly revealing, but that ends here. Personally, I was afraid L.A. Noire would be entirely shootouts and mindless action sequences; based on this video, there will be a fair amount of case solving, interrogating, and other detective duties. Rad.

My cautious optimism has moved into plain old optimism. Just barely. I'm still not convinced in terms of how much of the game is GTA-esque shenanigans versus how much is uncovering crimes. How are y'all feeling on this one?
