The lights are on
When boxer Albert Hammond goes missing after he wins a match he was supposed to lose, the LAPD and Cole Phelps investigate the fixed fight. The trail leads Phelps to Hammond's girlfriend Candy Evans, who is just about to leave town herself.
Phelps' interrogation of Evans highlights one of the game's principle gameplay mechanics, and tasks the player with reading Evans' body language to try uncover what she may have to hide and what info she may have on Hammond, the fight, and his disappearance.
Checking out Evans and the boxing match is one of the game's vice desk cases. Each mission you investigate in the game is based around a police desk, whether that's homicide, traffic, vice, etc. As you progress through the game you'll be promoted to more glamorous desks with new cases, partners, and police supervisors.

I can't wait for this to come out. I've already preordered mine!!!
I know I already posted this on you page Kato, but how is "reading Phelps' body language" help a case? Shouldn't Phelps be watching Evans' body language instead of his own?
ARGH, Blockbuster better stay in business long enough for me to rent this. It seems like buying it would be a waste since there's seemingly no replay value.
She looks more like an Abigail to me.
We're on the case!
Just as soon as May comes along...
I don't think I've been this excited for a game to come out since maybe the original Dead Rising, or Mirror's Edge (I'm a HUUUGE zombie/parkour fanatic). May 17th is entirely too far away!
What a two timing lil *** lol
On her profile, it says her age is 25-30....she looks 50, lol.

This game just keeps getting more and more intriguing!
I pre-ordered this game and am so excited!!! Good thing Portal comes out soon, or I wouldn't be able to wait.
