As with any game, “L.A. Noire” has a bunch of retail exclusives, depending on where you actually buy what’s starting to look like Rockstar’s latest masterpiece. GameStop’s mission is called “The Naked City”, a nice nod to one of the early noirs, and features you hunting down a murder suspect.
Now it’s Wal-Mart’s turn, with a case about car thieves. If I have an objection to these trailers, and the “L.A. Noire” materials in general, it’s that the story is so wrapped up in the game that they can’t really give us much in the way of a trailer or else they pretty much ruin the game mission for us.
On the other hand, that says the story is actually tightly integrated with the game for once, instead of being a throwaway, so, that’s nice.
Check out the trailer for Wal-Mart’s exclusive mission, and then GameStop’s, and see if you agree.
