One of the highlights of the game has to be the interrogation of suspects. In the original, players could choose to believe individuals or doubt their testimony. "Truth," "Doubt" and "Lie" were the three lines of questioning available. However, they didn't make much sense. "Truth" caused Cole Phelps, the main character, to adopt the stereotypical "Good Cop" routine while "Doubt' caused him to adopt the "Bad Cop" one. "Lie" was the most bizarre because it seemed as though he was just throwing out baseless accusations. This resulted in a guessing game because you never know what Phelps would utter.
It seems that Rockstar Games also noticed this because in the remaster they've renamed the three options to "Good Cop", "Bad Cop", and "Accuse". This definitely makes more sense because the old options were inadequate, to say the least. According to a report by Polygon, the game's original writer and director, Brendan McNamara, said the actor who played Phelps went "a little bit psycho with some of the questions you ask in the game." It seems that adjusting the options was the only way to make it clear.
L.A. Noire is a violent crime thriller set against the backdrop of 1940's Los Angeles. Amid the post-war boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, Phelps, a Los Angeles Police Department detective, is thrown into a city drowning in its own success. Corruption is widespread, the drug trade is booming, and murder rates are higher than ever. In his fight to climb the ranks of his division and do what's right, Phelps must unravel the truth behind a series of arsons, racketeering cases, and violent murders.
The remastered game launches on November 14, 2017, for $39.99. It includes all of the additional content which came with the game as well. The title was considered revolutionary when it first launched because it utilized amazing face-capture technology. You had to look at the expression on suspect's faces to tell if they were lying or telling the truth. The title runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X as well.
