  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Luxoflux brings us True Crime: Streets of LA. I like to start my reviews off with a question though, so is this a unique game or a rip off of several other games (i.e. GTA) with a few tweaks?

  • Excerpt: As video games become more and more complex and realistic-looking, game developers are starting to look toward other mediums for inspiration. No longer is game creation as simple as inventing a character, creating a world, and plotting out a mess of sprites. With the increased power of today's consoles, game developers have to consider the best way to keep players immersed in a game's world--a process that touches everything from the gameplay to the graphics to the...

  • 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.
