Product Description

Follow Nick Kang as he goes head-to-head with brutal crime syndicates, crooked cops and more in this hybrid driving-shooting-combat game.

From the Manufacturer

As Nick Kang, your brutal reputation and lethal skills have landed you a nasty job: heading up an undercover task force to stop the Chinese and Russian gangs from turning the City of Angels into their hellish playground.

Drive, fight and blast your way through a massive array of unpredictable missions, using stealth techniques, martial arts moves and an ask-questions-later arsenal. For maximum replayability, a changeable, branching storyline gives you the freedom to complete missions as you choose--however, you also have to face the consequences of those choices for better or worse. Successes or failures lead to entirely different game experiences, unveiling multiple storylines with no repeated missions.

Build skills as you progress, learn new fighting moves, more sophisticated shooting skills and driving maneuvers. Get all the gritty detail of the real undercover world in a painstakingly recreated Los Angeles featuring recognizable landmarks and famous streets. Cruise the city taking down or harassing the scum of the streets. Bust drug dealers and prostitutes, shakedown informants and confront gang members to get the job done.

Looks like the hardcore streets of L.A. have just met their match.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Game for any to enjoy November 5, 2003
Platform for Display:Xbox
True Crimes of LA is actually a pretty good game. You get to explore a much bigger city than in GTA: Vice City, but the stale gameplay and such can easily bring this game down a notch. While more realistic in everyway, True Crime can be considered one of the more innovative games of this time!
First the graphics. The graphics in this game are ASTONISHING! They're almost realistic in everyway! Surprisingly enough the game looks like REAL L.A. (with the exception of there not being much traffic.). So as far as eye-candy goes, True Crimes does a brilliant job here.
Now the sound. Again, no mistakes here! Good sound overall, and you can't go wrong here. Sound effects are great as well as the music. Again, you're not going wrong. The only thing I can say is that if you don't like Rap, you may not like the soundtrack as much. In this case it's good that you can take advantage of the custom soundtrack that the XBOX allows you to give the game.
Gameplay is probably where te game begins to faulter. The game has a "Good Cop/Bad Cop" system which isn't a bad idea. Should you do things the way a cop in real life would (i.e. you don't kill those you capture, you only injure, you fire warning shots and only shoot people in the leg and such) then you'll be considered a "Good Cop". Do the complete opposite and you're a "Bad Cop." There is a meter that tells you on which side of the bar you fall on.
Good Cop/Bad Cop isn't too badly done, but it really brings down the difficulty level of this game. It's fun to drive around but the game is so simple to keep to one side. If you see someone rob a bank you can easily just hit them with your car and not kill them, which results in you being a "Good Cop". If you hit him and kill him, you're a "Bad Cop".

4.0 out of 5 stars True dissapointment. January 26, 2004
Platform for Display:Xbox
If you haven't played GTA: Vice City, get that game instead of True Crime. If you have played Vice City, don't get True Crime because you'll just be dissapointed. What made Vice City so good is the same thing that makes True Crime not so good. Detail! The map is huge, too big for my tastes as I had no idea where I was most of the time, but it does seem to be a pretty accurate map of L.A., so if you are from L.A., you could probably visit the house where you are currently playing this game. Spooky. The game basically breaks down into three aspects; fighting, shooting, and driving. Because the map is so huge, I was mostly driving. This is where the game came up short. Most of the cars handled like 18-wheelers, and their top speed would rival most forklifts. Like most driving games, there are a few camera modes, and like most driving games the first person camera is planted on the bumper. Who would want to drive with their nose six inches off the asphalt? I have been to L.A. a few times and I know that they probably have more radio stations than any other city in the world, but in this game there is only one. I logged in over 100 hours in Vice City and never got tired of the eight different radio stations. In conclusion, my recommendation is to get Vice City. If you already wore that out, wait for Driver 3 comming in March.

4.0 out of 5 stars True Crime October 28, 2003
Platform for Display:Xbox
Although I will always charish Grand Theft Auto, True Crime looks like it will blow GTA out of the water. Here are some reasons why I think this game is better than GTA:
1. You play as Nick Kang, a former EOD cop ready to take on the streets of LA.
2. There is 250 square miles of living, breathing LA turf. You heard me. 250 SQUARE MILES!!!!!! That is 10 times bigger than Vice City and 7 times bigger than the Getaway!
3. Branching Storyline lets you play how you want to play. No matter if you pass or fail a mission. With random crimes going on aside from the story missions, the game is totally unpredictable.
4. Over 50 cars to choose from created from scratch, yet still reconizable car models.
5. Bullet time. What can I say? Bullet time.
6. Driving. Fighting. Shooting. All in one to give you the most immersive game of 2003.
Although there may be other reasons, this game will be AWESOME!! But GTA will always be inside of me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Game! December 15, 2003
Platform for Display:Xbox
This game is awesome! It's like Kung-fu fighting mixed w/ max paine, GTA and need for speed all in one! The missions are fun and theres almost endless gameplay. You can complete the set missions or bust street crimes. If you like the mindless GTA style bloodbath then theres some of that too! You can go on killing rampages w/ the awesome bullet time(Max Paine,Dead to Rights). You can roam around the city of LA while jacking citizens cars and speeding around corners causing chaos. All of this of course will give u a bad cop rating. But you can do good deeds(busting criminals w/ out killing them and not killing civilians)to earn a good cop rating. The graphics are average(cmon,2d trees!?)and the music is cool. Most of the game is very realistic untill you get to the later levels. Dragons, Zombies, Magic? Last time i checked this wasn't a fantasy game. I guess i've talked enough so i'd just like to say 1 more thing... Buy this game! Tons of fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Getaway but its no GTA November 5, 2003
Platform for Display:Xbox
I have had this game since Monday and was able to play it. The game opens you play as Nick Kang a member of Elite Operations Division (E.O.D.) Your job is to take down the criminals of L.A. The cool thing about this game is you can either go to a crime in progress and help or you can go to your intended destination and progress to the next level. If you are killed or fail the mission you do not need to redo it if you don't want to. The soundtracks pretty good no real compilants you can also custimize your soundtrack. The game isn't too bad the graphics are nice and sound is good and the voice acting is good look out for a few big HollyWood names. Overall I like what I see thus far and I quite enjoy this one but GTA comes out in the next few days for the xbox which will you be playing?
