1 December 2012
Summary: True Crime Streets Of LA is an open-world type of Grand Theft Auto game.You play as an LA cop,who fights and shoots his way through bad guys.There is a storyline you can play through,including optional alternate missions within the storyline.Plus,you can go around LA responing to crimes and stopping gang members,thieves,muggers,and other types of criminals.You can either be a good cop,by just slapping the cuffs on them,or be a bad cop,by blowing them away.The choice is...
Summary: I have this game, I remember the first time I brought it,The story is a little wacky at times, But it's fun even if silly at times, it's not GTA of course. lots of product placement in the game, decent not great soundtrack, the controls are a little off at times. not so great graphics,pretty fun at the time.
A game which had potential, instead, was covered with blemishes. It's okay for a GTA mimic.

Summary: In this game your character is a cop named Nick Kang who is very independant and merciless. He is teamed up with a women that he cannot get along with in the EOD. Your job is to chase and track down murderers, drug dealers, and more. In this game, you can choose to be a good cop and bad cop. The more pedestrians you kill, the more your Bad Cop Rating lengthens. The more crooks you arrest, the more Good Cop Rating lengthens. This decides where you game is going to go.
Summary: THE SHORT: A free-roaming game similar to Grand Theft Auto but with enough personality and uniqueness to stand on its own. A clichéd storyline and some control issues mar things, but its addictive gameplay and flexible mission style make it worth playing. THE LONG: When this game was released, some unfairly called it a GTA clone. Sure they're both about grabbing any car that comes along and moving about a large city, taking on missions and causing havoc.
Summary: TrueCrime:Streets Of L.A. was not as good as i thought it would be,I thought it would beat Grand Theft Auto:Vice City when it was my favorate there is only 3 games that beat GTA:Vice City and they are GTA:San Andreas,Driver 3(DRIV3R) & The GetaWay 2:Black Monday.Mafia and TrueCrime:SOL.A.
Summary: Overrated and boring game is a real waste of money and time that it makes Kingdom Hearts look like a masterpiece. A policeman kills people on the streets,jacks car,and shoots anyone one with a gun. This game gets old very fast and the camera angles make this game hard to play. The graphics are good and the missions are decent but the real reason this stinks is because those annoyning camera angles. Please play at your own risk but do not buy this.
Typical Activision game -- as many good points as bad.

Summary: Aside from the obvious Grand Theft Auto comparisons, this game reminds me of a recent Activision game I played -- X-Men Legends. While their playability and quality are generally okay, both contain frustratingly crappy points that seriously chip into your enjoyment. True Crime is so much a Grand Theft Auto clone that accusations of imitation are futile -- if that is a problem for you, you shouldn't be considering this game in the first place.
It's Fun But There Are Much Better Games Out There...
11 October 2004
Summary: True Crime: Streets if LA is a good game, don't get me wrong. The controls are good, the guns are nice and it was a good idea overall. It's just there are much better games on the market today. It is not better then Grand Theft Auto or Madden or even the Simpsons: Hit and Run. It's just another shooter that seems are overcrowded in the Ps2 genre. As for the game, you are a dirty cop who doesn't care if he kills a person or two.
Summary: On the X-Box or PS2 I could see where this game could be bearable. The PC version is quite a different story. There is no support for a game pad or joystick, so the only options are keyboard and mouse. The huge map, large assortment of cars and plot mean nothing if you can't control the character or his vehicle. I have never seen controls in a game this lethargic.
Summary: Yes, rent it first. If I could, I'd give it 2.5 stars because that is all this game is....flat average. It does have replay value, but there are many MANY flaws. First off, the hand-to-hand combat system is possibly the worst I've ever used, the overall control setup is extremely cumbersome, the diologue stinks, and the game is just too short. If one chooses to simply play through the story, the game could be over within two hours. This is really just a good rental.
