Team Bondi’s action game developed in conjunction with Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire hit Indian stores this weekend for the Xbox360 and PS3 (both are priced at Rs. 2,499). And no, this is not GTA set in the forties. This is in fact a slower paced game with the focus on story telling as opposed to wanton violence.
No this is not GTA
Set amid the violence and corruption of post-World War II Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is a crime thriller that seamlessly blends crime-solving, clue-finding, car chases and shoot-outs with revolutionary new interrogation-based gameplay that will allow players to read characters’ emotions in order to reveal the truth. Players will take on the role of Cole Phelps, a decorated war veteran, who rises through the ranks of the LAPD by solving a series of gruesome murders and other crimes that bring him face-to-face with the dark heart of Los Angeles during Hollywood’s Golden Age.
Developed in a special partnership with Rockstar Games and Team Bondi, L.A. Noire employs ground-breaking new MotionScan performance-scanning technology. MotionScan utilizes 32 high-definition cameras to capture actors’ faces in 3D, transferring every aspect of their performance into the game, enabling players for the first time to lip-read in-game characters and to read every facial expression down to the finest detail.
