True Crime: New York City

Game Over Online
10 January 2006
  • Excerpt: You always know when it happens. Every blue moon a game developer releases a product that sets the entire industry on its ear, garnering both critical acclaim and runaway financial success. The sound of palms slapping against foreheads can be heard resonating throughout every competitor’s office almost in unison… the frustration of having not come up with that blockbuster idea first is sometimes quite overwhelming.

Game Over Online
10 January 2006
  • Excerpt: When Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto III and then Vice City a couple years later, it inspired a bunch of copycat games including a terrible title from Luxoflux and Activision called True Crime: Streets of L.A. With Rockstar releasing GTA: San Andreas in late 2004, it was a foregone conclusion that there would be more wannabe titles not too far behind.

True Crime Does Pay

  • Conclusion: True Crime: New York City is but another title leveraging Grand Theft Auto’s infamy. It tries to be different, it really does, by creating original content and compelling narrative across established and imaginative ideas - and it works - but it is still using the concept of a free-roaming, shoot-em-up, mission-based game based around ideas first seen in GTA. But unless you're a elitist right-wing gaming aristocrat, you'll have a lot of fun with it.

  • Excerpt: Det er ikke mange utviklere forunt å sette standarden for en sjanger. Rockstar har nærmest monopol med sin GTA-serie, og er bortimot alene i kjøre/skytespill-avdelingen. De selskapene som har turt å prøve seg har for det meste gått ettertrykkelig på snørra. Et glimrende eksempel på et forsøk på å tyne kroner ut av sjangeren er Driv3r - en av de platteste utgivelsene de siste årene.

True Crime: New York City

18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: "True Crime: New York City on Activisionin toinen yritys saada osansa ilmiöstä nimeltä Grand Theft Auto. GTA-kloonina peli onnistuu huonosti, omana itsenäänkin vain tyydyttävästi ja peli onnistuukin vain harvoina hetkinä olemaan edes jollain tapaa nautittava. Takaisin suunnittelupöydän ääreen pojat. Allekirjoittaneelle sen sijaan iski aito GTA-nälkä. Taidankin mennä pelaamaan oman San Andreakseni uudelleen lävitse.
  • Pros: + Mahdollisuus kerrankin pelata poliisina, + Musiikit ja ääninäyttely..
  • Cons: - .Muuten audiovisuaalisesti varsin heikko esitys, - Tekoäly, - Yleinen keskinkertaisuus, - Autoilu tönkköä, - Liian pitkät välimatkat tehtäviin, - Epätasainen ruudunpäivitys

  • Summary: Man sollte wissen, was man von "True Crime: New York City" erwarten kann. Für knallharte Action zwischendurch ist der Titel wie geschaffen. In den Nebenmissionen darf man sich nach Lust und Laune austoben, kleinere Aufträge nach eigenem Ermessen mit Gewalt oder ohne individuell erledigen. Das Ganze macht insbesondere aufgrund der großen, realistischen Spielumgebung und der gegebenen Bewegungs- und Aktionsfreiheit durchaus Spaß.
  • Pros: akurate Nachbildung New Yorks, passende Soundumgebung, viel Action
  • Cons: Steuerungsmacken, zumeist eintönige Missionen, magere Story
