A unfinished mess and tarnishes the True crime name

Summary: True Crime:New York City is the second game in the True Crime series and to be honest its a wasted idea thanks to clumsy gameplay, broken driving system, an average story and the most important crime this game has to offer is that the whole game is riddled with glitches one glitch in particular in the xbox version that wont let you progress on in the story. The only thing this game has going for it is its gritty atmosphere and the story but even that is average at best.
So much better than the first one, but unplayable on 360

Summary: I rarely give 5 stars, but this one is close. For the original xbox, this is one of the funnest games I've played. Almost as good as the GTA franchise. If you played the first one, You notice it was kinda fun. The improvements on this one make it far superior to the last installment. originality- 7/10 (loses points for being made after gta, high score for being a cop and being improved upon) graphics- 8/10 sound- 8/10 replay- 5/10 (not a whole lot to do once you beat it,...
Summary: I originally rented this from Gamefly and after I beat it and sent it back, I needed to play it more without paying every month. The storyline is amazing. Mafia, Satanists, Street gangs controlled by your imprisoned father, (nice thinking!) Triads, (again). This game has it all! A rock band destroying a hotel. Tommy Guns, Different suits, Barbers! The music selection is pretty good, but I listen to classic rock so there is like 2 songs I like personally.
Summary: I am not the kind of guy who complains or demands a lot about games and I have always been able to overlook minor glitches as long as the game is fun and keeps me entertained, HOWEVER I must say that I have NEVER EVER had such a terrible experience like I did with this game. In the beginning I was loving the game, great missions and I could literally play it for hours, but then the nightmare started.
Summary: I'll start by saying that True Crime NYC is the first console game that I can remember since the Sega Master System days that actually crashed my console. New game disc, 2005 model Xbox with no read errors or other problems; this is simply a horribly broken piece of software. What is so sad about TCNYC is the clear attempt to make a great game.
Summary: I enjoyed the game and thus give it a perfect score because it kept me going for months even though i beat the game 6 times. I enjoyed the game a lot despite all the bugs and glitches. It's created with the real look and feel of new york city. Despite all the praise though the game really did frustrate me with all the bugs and things. Like on the Shadow Tong case it took me forever to knock Tommy off the crate thing. But overall loved it!
Summary: True Crime New York City is the sequel to True Crime L.A. Though you are now playing as a former gang member named, Marcus instead of Kang. Marcus was framed and betrayed by his own gang boss, so from the beginning of the game you will start blasting away in a bitter state of revenge. Marcus then makes a new lead in life by becoming a cop with the help of his father's friend.
Summary: its fun to just turn this game on and fool around in the environment. the city looks\feels JUST like being in New York (especially Harlem) and it is HUGE. frisk people for illegal contriband, drive around listening to music or stop in the MANY restaurants and get something to eat to restore health. i myself love the shooting scheme where when you push down the right joystick, things slow down so you can target better. excellent shooting effects as well.
Summary: I liked the first True Crime a lot so when they announced this game I had high expectations for it. I got it and started to play it and I loved it, I was like YEAH! another True Crime, but then after the first 5 minutes if gameplay it turned into crap. It was kind of like the creators put all there effort into the first five minutes of the game then they were just like "alright lets finish this already.
