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.

Quotes

Cole Phelps: I'm surprised, you know. I didn't make the husband for it.
L.A.P.D Homicide Desk Detective Rusty Galloway: Always make the husband. Nine times out of ten it's the closest person to the vic who does the deed. God knows I've wanted to kill some wives in my time.
Cole Phelps: "Lex parsimonae."
L.A.P.D Homicide Desk Detective Rusty Galloway: What?
Cole Phelps: The law of parsimony. Occam's Razor. The simplest explanation is most likely the correct one.
L.A.P.D Homicide Desk Detective Rusty Galloway: You know, you could have said that without getting all liturgical.
Cole Phelps: I'll try to dumb things down from now on.
L.A.P.D Homicide Desk Detective Rusty Galloway: It's appreciated. Try this one. "Rusty's razor."

Best game I've played
8 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I went to read some of peoples comments, I was astonished that many people disliked this game. I thought that this was one of my most favorite/fun game I have played in a long long long time. The acting was great, with over five different actors from Mad Men. The scenery and story was very cool and fun. There were only a couple of parts that were boring, but that was it for me. This game comes with three discs of the same game. I have enjoyed every second of it. I finished the game in six days five months ago, and now I have decided to replay the game. If you miss a clue or screw up an instigation, your result could be different each time. This game takes place during the 40s, post world war II. We follow Cole Phelps, a world war II vet who is now a cop and is moving from rank to rank on the police force.

SOme of the murders are harrowing, with naked women and some peoples faces are torn apart. But, you can have a selection to skip this if needed.

This game might need some getting used to, but when you do, you just can not stop. I love it.
