Summary: To start this review off, let me just say that even though this is like grand theft auto, in some ways, it really isn't. well, yeah, you can free roam, like in gta, but everything else is just totally different. ok, here comes the review. to start, i thought this game was 50/50 to be honest, i didn't really like the cutscenes because i think they just rushed them alot, same with the missions, i mean really, do you think you can kill a sniper 40 feet away with a pistol?
Summary: OK, first, this game is NOT gta obviously and you couldn't compare the two games because there both different we cant assume that this game is better or worse than gta its just different gta has more side missions the freedom to do whatever you want is about the same in true crime la, only thing is is your a cop, not a criminal but you can be both in your own way true crime isn't made by rock star and that's perfectly fine true crime has its own style of game-play and is...
Summary: I used to have a gamecube with tons of games, including true crime: streets of L.A. but I sold them all. I have a wii and have recently started feeling nostalgic so have began buying all the games I used to own again (well the good ones anyway). Fun game, it's like GTA.

Summary: True Crime owes a lot, if not everything, to the Grand Theft Auto series. Indeed it is very difficult these days to have a free-roaming action game and not compare it to GTA but True Crime is so alarmingly similar that I'm surprised Rockstar didn't try to sue. The story of True Crime is right out of a direct-to-video action film of the late 80s.
Summary: Alright, let's get one thing straight. Yes, the storyline is stupid, and yes there are far more realistic skillful games out there - but frankly if you just want to crash cars into pedestrians and cause general chaos in a massive city, then this is the game for you. Mostly I just ignore the actual missions, the standard of gameplay in them isn't really worth my time, but just messing about in the streets is so much fun on it's own that you won't really worry about that.
Summary: I really think that true crime is a very overrated game. It relies to much on guns and gore and forgets the most important thing in a game-the gameplay! It does have some good points though. Firslty the moves you can perform are often fun. Also, in places the storyline is good as well. But, with all the hype it has got, like people calling it the next GTA, it has not delivered. If something wants to be the next brilliant gangster game, it has to be better than this.
