Summary: I recently bought this game on Amazon because I remembered playing it a few years ago and loving it. That was probably the worst way to waste 1 dollar. The game is fun for about 10 minutes... after that, it's already repetetive. And if you're looking for an alternative to the Grand Theft Auto series (as I was), then keep looking. Kill civilians as you may, and no cops will ever come after you. You also lose points for every civilian killed.

Summary: So, if you like GTA I can't guarantee you'll like this, but it's still a fun game. The graphics are pretty much the same as The Getaway. Anyway, you're playing the character of an annoying Asian guy who's mean as hell and somehow passed the psych evaluation test to become a cop. The game is definately a knock-off on the whole GTA series, yet it's not as addictive or fun.
Summary: I tried this game 4 times. The controls and handling are difficult at best. In several efforts to stop the "random crime", I ended up killing civillians. Every time I ended up a "bad cop" BEFORE I even got halfway through the first mission. Compairing Vice City and this game would be like compairing a Ferrari and a Model T. Don't waste your money unless you just want to drive around a nicely detailed large city.
Summary: When i first heard about this game i was expecting a GTA rivalry but what the heck this game turned out not that good at all, the main character says the dumbest things and the gameplay isnt even that great.
Summary: Why, oh why did I ever let my brother talk me into going halfs for this thing? This game is an absolute atrocity. -The controls are a real pain in the ass. If you can switch targets while on auto-aim it's too difficult to do while firing (since I haven't figured it out yet). -It's incredibly short, I beat it all (upgrades, alternate routes, etc.) in 2 days. -The songs are irritating beyond any kind of description.
Summary: True Crime: Streets of L.A. may have the traits of many great games thrown into it, but just because it stole ideas from various companies and compiled them into one game, does it really make it that great? The game is similar to the "Grand Theft Auto" series in the sense that it allows you to go anywhere and do anything (sort of.
