There are 40+ cases in the game (not including the two pre-order cases “A Slip of the Tongue” and “The Naked City”) as well as “Unassigned Cases” and our walkthrough will help you to complete each and every one of them.
L.A. Noire is a detective game in which “Cases” are the main structure point of the action adventure. After being briefed by your Captain, you’ll view a cutscene of the crime the case is about, and then be taken to the Crime Scene where you’ll get your hands dirty searching for clues. Interrogations, which are the main hook of the game, will also play a big part in discovering the truth behind who committed the crime, and shootings will also take place.
The game uses breakthrough realistic facial and body graphics along with audio cues in which you will try to interrogate a subject in order to figure out whether they are telling the truth or lying. Depending on how the interrogation goes and how many clues you are given by talking to suspects, you can open different routes to solve the case, so each case can be solved in different ways.
You are also scored at the end of the case by 1-5 stars, with higher ratings leading to quicker leveling up to higher ranks.
