When I was growing up I loved The Operative, a great little spy game with a sexy female lead that made Lara Croft look like a softie. For ages (and ages) I have wished for a modern spy/detective game to be released, but its not been on the agenda.

Thankfully Rockstar have decided to tackle the genre and they look set to change the perception of detective games and put them on the cool wall!

LA Noire is out on the 20th May, it is set in 1947  amid the post-war boom of Hollywood’s Golden Age and gamers will play as Cole Phelps as he works his way up the ranks in the LAPD.

The geek in me is extremely excited by the release of this game and if it is anywhere near as awesome as Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Redemption we are in for a treat!
