This is a "detective" storyline with some similarities to LA Noire; Hardboiled (By Jackal1337) ; but with added features to really take advantage of objects and thinking. Two Detectives...Two Stories..Two Cases. Both stories crossover and have the same main goal, but each detective is fighting to get the bust for himself. The player will be encouraged to use thinking and observe the objects near him as Invisible checkpoints are placed, take pictures of Clues and work together with his partners.
Take the role as "James Barretta" who starts off as a Mall Security Guard and makes himself known enough to be a detective. The cases he gets involved as a detective become more than he can handle..

Even though It is more "Detective".. There are some things you might find similar with SA Noire. There will be a lot of use of objects. It is going to take some thinking.
Im not sure myself, but I think the entire story is looking at 40-70 missions. The missions will not be too long, but Each Case will have a DSL folder. I don't want to overwhelm anyone or myself yet. But thats my predictions.
LA Noire is similar because there are about 3-5 cases per Desk and 5 desk. Each Case takes around 30-60 mins to complete.
Our cases might take 30-45 mins to complete.
Thanks for the luck , we are gonna need it.

From the posts you put I'm sure that S.A. Noire is nothing. From my missions pack, I only have 2 detective missions in my pack (the 2nd detective missions have 5 part)
What I can say is goodluck you two...
From the looks of your pics and the video, (I haven't played them though), this story has no f*cking similarity with yours. So, NO. This story is more like relaxing, sit back and solving the damn cases, some will involve gun fights or brawls.
-- There's no intro, no introductions. Real things starts after Trainings. --

Played training mission, I will not rate it because it's only training, oh, and I recommend to put the player only 25 health, so It will be hard and make more real the game, a few bullets should kill the player, all missions were good.
Damn the officer that poisoned the other officer's food, damn him, damn him!
