  • Excerpt: ~ True Crime New York City ~ 1. Action/Adventure type of game 2. 18+ Age Restriction ~ My Reason for Buying The Game ~ I bought True Crime New York City purely because of the reason that i enjoyed the first series so much, so buying New York City was a must for me. ~ My Review of The Game Itself ~ True Crime New York City actually has a great story line, its not just one of them story lines where u get so lost and you don't understand whats going on in the game itself.
  • Pros: Great Detective, good cop/bad cop story line
  • Cons: Certain gliches can affect the gameplay and be quite annoying at times

  • Excerpt: Well I liked playing it - it is one of very few games that held my attention for more than a few seconds... I think it's the freedom you have within the game to go anywhere within the seemingly limitless environment, interact with the characters, explore the shops and buy stuff, and if you get bored you can just knick someone's car (of which there are many, of many different types) and joyride through central park till the car blows up from hitting too many trees.
  • Pros: Limitless environment for your character to freely explore
  • Cons: Too many controls to remember

  • Excerpt: This game can be described in a great deal of ways, however, none of them good. The controls are awkward, car handling is dreadful, Marcus: the main character can not run to save his life, the cut scenes are laughable, the weapons are stored in the trunk of your car, honestly who came up with that and to make it worse the gun aim is horrific. The one decent aspect of the game is the storyline.
  • Pros: Half - decent Storyline .
  • Cons: Horrendous gamplay & Visuals  -  Awful Stuttering  -  Numerous Bugs & Glitches

OK but no GTA

  • Summary: In True Crime you play the role of NYPD Beat Cop Marcus Reed, who at the time you take control is just a couple of tutorials away from making detective. Marcus has come this far under the wing of Detective Terrence "Terry" Higgins who is soon killed in mysterious circumstances on a call out and thus begins the storyline which sees Marcus attempting to investigate and ultimately avenge the killing of his mentor.

Where did it go wrong?

  • Summary: I was looking forward to the release of this game and being an owner and fan of T.C L.A. I was expecting an improved and longer sequel. This was not quite what I got. I find this game frustratingly slow and hard to negotiate. Aswel as this I think the scenery and graphics of the game arent half as good as in L.A. Its dark, dank and has none of the humour from the first installment.

Very Poor

  • Summary: I wasn't always convinced with this title since it was announced but thought il give it a try. To be blunt it was back within 3 days. Dreadful! I for one am a big fan of free roam shooters. But its poor. Theres glitches, ppor car handling, poor aiming etc. Bad bad game Do not buy!

In a New York Minute

Mike Jonze, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: The major problem with True Crime: Streets of L.A. was the developers were out of their depth - trying to be clever by covering all bases. It was billed as a free-roaming shooting game, fighting game and driving game, but each individual element was rubbish. Fortunately, time has moved on, technology has improved and games like GTA: San Andreas have proved all this can be achieved - within limits.

  • Summary: Eine Frechheit was die Entwickler da auf den Markt werfen. Unfertig, voller Bugs und öden Missionen. Nein wirklich, diese Sätze sind nicht übertrieben! Grafisch gesehen, macht TC einen soliden Eindruck. Nur leider stürtz das Spiel ab-u.-zu ab. Regelmäßiges Speichern ist unabdingbar. Auch sonst wirkt das Spiel lieblos zusammen gekleistert.
