Rockstar Games has been doing a great job of introducing some of the key gameplay mechanics associated with their and Team Bondi’s upcoming detective title L.A. Noire. Many of the elements shown so far have indicated that L.A. Noire might actually be a trek into new territory for both of the developers, however a recently released trophy and achievement list suggests that some of the signature Rockstar flair is still present.
Though there are still a few trophies and achievements that Rockstar would like to keep secret — as they pertain to specific cases within the game — this list runs the gamut of old Rockstar staples to trophies and achievements that focus on the game’s sidequests and abilities.Aside from your standard “kill requisite number of bad guys” and “drive every type of vehicle” achievements there are also points and trophies being given out for experiencing the breadth of L.A. Noire’s mechanics, namely the new interrogation-based gameplay.
One particular achievement that gamers are going to have the most fun earning is the ‘Hollywoodland’ achievement that requires players find and inspect all the golden film reels hidden throughout the game. It’s a simple collectible quest that gamers have seen before, but one that is much more interesting when considered in the context of the game’s setting and genre.
As players move up through the ranks of the LAPD they will net themselves intuition points that can be spent during the interrogation portions of the game. Using those points, and a careful examination of the suspect’s facial animations, players can turn a simple questioning into an all out confession. If a player correctly takes one interrogation moment to its furthest possible conclusion — asking all the right questions at all the right times — they will net themselves a couple of trophies.
Here is your non-hidden trophy and achievement list:
A Cop On Every Corner
Complete a single street crime case.
Johnny On The Spot
Respond to 20 street crime cases.
The Long Arm Of The Law
Complete all street crime cases.
The City Of The Angels

Keep A Lid On

The final trophy that should be particularly interesting to fans of Hollywood’s Second Golden Age is the ‘Star Map’ trophy that requires players discover all of the landmark buildings around the city. It might not seem like much, but in the hands of a meticulous developer like Team Bondi, this trophy will allow gamers to experience 1940s Los Angeles in striking detail.
Though the trophies are merely the guide to what is shaping up to be a very enticing experience, they have shed some light on interesting components of L.A. Noire’s essential and non-essential gameplay. If your looking for an even better look at L.A. Noire, stick tuned to Game Rant as the third trailer is set to release tomorrow.
