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.
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.
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!
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.
