L.A. Noire has five hours of cutscenes

Plus, BBFC hands out 18 certificate.

L.A. Noire, Rockstar's forthcoming crime epic, features over five hours of cutscenes, according to a British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) listing.

The post, as spotted by PlayStation Universe, states that the game has a total of five hours and 12 minutes of cinematics, as well as three hours and 25 minutes of "supplementary gameplay footage".

Last month, Rockstar suggested that the game's core single player campaign would take between 25 and 30 hours to complete.

Bad news kids: the BBFC has slapped an 18 certificate on the game. Apparently it "contains very strong language, strong violence, sex references and nudity" but no cuts have been requested.
