LA Noire: just like being a real detective!

Man, being a cop in the '40s must have been awesome

For all its realism, LA Noire still has to bow to traditional videogame logic in order to be fun. So while Rockstar and Team Bondi trumpeted their achievements in city detail and gritty detective work, I couldn't help but laugh each time something decidedly "gamey" happened to these otherwise straight-laced officers. Did '40s detectives really scale pipes, leap across crumbling movie setsor flip cars intooncoming traffic?Hey, if this is what it was really like to be a cop back then, retroactively sign me up!
