Summary: This game is quite enjoyable. Great soundtrack, the layout of Manhattan is very realistic, the driving is smooth, and who doesn't like beating pedestrians? However, it is clearly a poor man's GTA & starts to feel like one long vigilante mission. Of course thats not the worst thing in the world, so if you only own gamecube I'm afraid that this is about as close as your gonna get.

Summary: I enjoyed True Crime: Streets of LA despite the fact that it was clearly just a poor man's GTA. Having just owning a Gamecube at the time it was the closest I could get to playing a GTA game on that system. TC: NYC had been on my wishlist for years but Gamecube games are increasingly hard to find so it took me a while to track it down. Now that I own a PS3 and very familiar with GTA IV, playing TC: NYC is a HUGE step down in quality.
Summary: I remember being given this game as a present and thinking it's not my type of game. How wrong I was! This was the first game I have properly been addicted to! Absolutely loved it! Main storyline is awesome, and so are the side-lined scenarios. Very time consuming in a great way! Would love this game to come out on ps3!
Summary: I had high hopes for this game. I owned Streets of LA and thought the idea was ok but the game was ultimately let down by poor game and story design. So when I found out they were bringing Streets of NY out and it was supposed to be less Chinese mythology and more gangs and guns, I was excited. Unfortunately, again this game is let down by poor design. This game feels rushed. the frame rate is so bad that its nearly impossible to control the vehicles in the game.
