I was privileged enough to get a hands-off demo of L.A. Noire
running yesterday, ahead of today's trailer release (we've run a preview for said demo before, which you can find here), having missed the demo a few weeks ago, and I can say that this is truly a game to be excited for in 2011.
The Motionscan technology being used to capture - at 360 degrees - actor performances is game-changing. And with a gameplay mechanic that explores ideas of facial expressions to catch out lies, or believe the innocent, it's utterly necessary. Today's trailer gives a very good indication of the lengths gone to, to ensure L.A. Noire, first and foremost, is a compelling and engaging experience.
