"Rising Through the Ranks," L.A. Noire-style

By Tyler Christensen

April 21, 2011

The third video, “Rising Through the Ranks,” for Rockstar Games’ series of in-game footage for L.A. Noire not only lets us grovel over the absolutely amazing visuals of the game but it also takes us even further into the life of Detective Cole Phelps as he climbs through the ranks of the LAPD. The video shows us a first-hand look at the game’s ranking system and also gives us a little insight on “Intuition Points” and “Unassigned Cases.” We only have just a few more weeks until this beauty is in our possessions. I know, the anticipation is killing me too. But, that’s why we have this awesome video to watch.
