Conclusion: Luxoflux takes another stab at the True Crime license, with mixed results. The horrid framerate and numerous bugs make this game like tap dancing in a minefield, but the game itself is deep, with a quality narrative, superb voice acting and rich gameplay. If it had been optimized and playtested for a few more months, True Crime New York City couldâ€™ve been a real hit.
Excerpt: Crime and punishment. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but it's also really, really weak. And you won't find much more rampant imitation than in video games, where one year's Warcraft is another year's Armies of Exigo . So welcome to True Crime: New York City , this year's version of GTA , which is also the follow up to True Crime: Streets of L.A. , 2003 's version of GTA .
Pros: Solid voice-acting and music, Lots of content, And lots more glitches, Ugly environments, Slow, weightless cars, Nasty framerate issues, Absurdly derivative
Excerpt: I was a fan of True Crime: LA, sure it had it bugs and it wasnt as polished as some other games out at the time but it had potential and when I heard it was getting a sequel I was delighted.. So its is a new True Crime game and with an extra 2 years of experience under there belt how does Luxofluxs latest game in the series work out? Im displeased to tell you not very well.
Summary: Si bien es cierto que los usuarios de Nintendo no han podido disfrutar del fenómeno que ha significado Grand Theft Auto, no se puede pensar que no han conocido en que consiste el género, gracias a la precuela de este gran juego que realmente muy poco tenía que envidiar a la famosa saga.
Conclusion: WOW… endlich mal ein Titel, der dem derzeitigen Genrekönig GTA – San Andreas das Wasser reichen kann. True Crime: New York City begeistert ab der ersten Spielminute und weiß dank der kinoreifen Story, dem ausgeklügelten Kampfsystem und der tollen Nachbildung New Yorks, trotz einiger grafischer und spielerischer Defizite, durchaus zu gefallen.
