Storyline

Amid the post-war boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, Cole Phelps is an LAPD detective thrown headfirst into a city drowning in its own success. Corruption is rampant, the drug trade is exploding, and murder rates are at an all-time high. In his fight to climb the ranks and do what's right, Phelps must unravel the truth behind a string of arson attacks, racketeering conspiracies and brutal murders, battling the L.A. underworld and even members of his own department to uncover a secret that could shake the city to its rotten core.

Very good game
12 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To start off, this game is certainly different and individual. This game really explores everybody's character and really gets you involved with the sometimes grim cases. It takes you through 5 desk, first of all you start off on patrol which is a very slender slice of the game then you move up to traffic desk investigating traffic accidents. Then you advance up to homicide, then vice and then arson. There are 3 discs to the game as it is such a big one and there is 21 cases. One of the bad things about this game is the fact that it can get very repetitive and verges on boring occasionally. Despite this, this game is beautifully crafted and blends intense but sometimes too short shootouts, interactive interviews and investigating crime scenes.
