You will need to be patient when you play L.A. Noire. You're a detective, not a soldier; a crime-solver, not a crime-committer.
There will be action in the Rockstar/Team Bondi game that finally comes out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next week. Here is the game's official launch trailer, filled with gunplay.
We'll have plenty more L.A. Noire coverage next week, but remember, everyone, this is a game about finding clues, noticing suspects' nervous facial tics and following the right leads. You will be able to shoot and be shot at, but when all is said and done, in L.A. Noire, the notebook is mightier than the gun.
