Detective games for Xbox 360?

Following the release of LA Noire, could anyone recommend any detective/problem-solving games on the xbox 360?

Why not just buy LA Noire?

There was one released recently enough called Gray Matter. Played the demo and it isn't my cup of tea but might be worth a look if you are in to them. Plays like and reminded me a bit of the older Gabriel Knight games, but I just couldn't justify a purchase of it at full price. Might have come down a bit since then.

EDIT: Just checked google, it was made by the same creator of the Gabriel Knight series, Jane Jensen. Explains the similarities

Condemned 2 has some detective work moments - but they are few and far between - hardly the main reason to buy the game.

"Problem-solving" makes me think more along the lines of Braid and, though I've only played the demo, Limbo?

There's always Deadly Premonition. Bad gameplay but fantastic narrative and characters and a lot more compelling than Alan Wake. It's not for everyone though.

Not being smart but if you like detective games could you not go and investigate yourself and find out if any other games exist?

Alan Wake is a giant yawnfest. I couldn't bring myself to finish that game it was so boring. Deadly Premonition is definitely where it's at

Eh actually you are being smart.

Amusing but smart none the less.
