  • Excerpt: Repeat after me. This is not Grand Theft Auto . This is not Grand Theft Auto . This is not Grand Theft Auto . Say it to yourself again. Once more. Good. Now you get the picture. OK, so True Crime: Streets of LA is set in a large American city, is pretty much free roaming and contains lots of guns and cars, but just remember, it is not Grand Theft Auto . From the outset, the influence makes its presence known though.

  • Excerpt: As Nick Kang, you are called back to HQ after being suspended from the force. “The Chief” offers you a job in the Elite Operations Division that is working to keep Chinese and Russian gangs from turning the City of Angels into a City of Hell. The story is an obvious parody on the rogue cop movies of the last twenty years.

True Crime: Streets of LA, delivers an action game, a narrative experience, a driving game, and a fighting game all into one. This free roaming game puts you in the shoes of a LAPD cop. Will you be a good cop or a bad cop? What kind of story will you tell? The choice is yours, but choose to click here first.

  • Excerpt: Personally, there are two distinct scenarios for wasted potential. One is a great license or idea in the hands of a developer that wouldn't know how to use it if it coded itself, and the other is an idea that just can't quite get to fruition - not because the developer doesn't have the talent, but because it's either too complex a concept to tackle in one go, or that there just isn't enough time or resources.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: There is plenty to do and even more to see in True Crime. It's a shooter, fighter, RPG, driving sim all in one. All of these areas are done well to boot. The size of the game will simply astound those that pick up a copy. In the end even with the small problems don't hurt it enough to keep me from recommending the game. It's worth a purchase, just be prepared to adapt to the gameplay.

  • Summary: It’s a huge, mature, single-player cop saga on GameCube. And it rocks.
  • Pros: Awesome cinemas and voices, Diverse, solid gameplay, Tons of missions to beat and upgrades to earn
  • Cons: Graphics and controls rough in some places, Not enough to do or find while roaming the city, Soundtrack isn’t going to appeal to many people

  • Summary: True Crime ist ein wirklich gelungenes Spiel. Es macht gehörig Spass seine Kontrahenten durchs Mobiliar zu Prügeln. Grafisch ist das Game sicherlich in Ordnung. Soundtechnisch kann ich hier auch nichts bemängeln: Sprachausgabe sauber, Rapklänge passend. Bleibt eigentlich nur noch der übliche Kritikpunkt, dass es nach einmaligen Durchspielen nicht wirklich viele Gründe gibt, den Titel nochmals zu spielen.
