THE GOOD: +Stealth +Cars +Upgrades +Endings +Dogg Bones
THE BAD: -Car Damage
SUMMARY: True Crime: Streets of LA is a great game to play when you first buy it but when you beat it it has not so much of a replay value left in it besides trying to collect all of the Dogg bones which I will go into more later. This game like every other has it's ups and downs to it, but this game has more ups to it which is a great thing. Nick Kang who is the main character gets repetitive with his words and it gets boring. The story sees Nick Kang trying to find out who killed his father and it is a great story which just makes you think a lot about the story.
Some missions will require you to use stealth. I like that addition to the game but what I didn't like about the stealth is that if you made one little mistake you only get three seconds to either kill the enemy that spotted you or to just give up. You won't find yourself using the stealth to much but it's great to use it.
True Crime : Streets of LA is a GTA3 style game, but instead of playing the criminal, you play the cop. Come on, stop booing. The cop you play, Nick Kang, is a typical bad-cop type. He bashes, shoots, runs down, frisks, uses human sheilds, and causes millions of dollars of material damage to LA. You are not in the LAPD though, your badge has been suspended. Instead, you are in the EOD, or Elite Ops Division. TC is very much like GTA in the sense that you can "borrow" other people's cars and roam around the city, armed and dangerous at your own will, wreaking havoc and destruction as you go, but it is slightly different, and many of the original ideas of GTA have been made better in this game.
As you probably would have guessed when I said "GTA3 style" that driving plays an impostant part in this game, and little much differs here from GTA3. You can comandeer cars, which is cop terms for "borrow," and drive them around. There are a large range of cars to be found, and ...
THE GOOD: Cool guns to choose from. Nice variety of cars on the streets. Ability to play as Snoop Dogg. The city is very detailed and huge. Missions are fun. Ability to arrest people.
THE BAD: The game is somewhat short. The game music isnt good.
SUMMARY: This is a pretty fun game but too bad that only it last for about a week because the game isnt that long. The missions are very fun and there is a good vairety so you dont do like the same thing over and over again. Most of the missions are meduim level on hardness but there are some that are pretty hard and can get very frustrating and seem almost impossible to pass. There is a good choice of weapons from bats, knives, shot guns, machine guns, and other cool weapons. There is also a pretty big variety of cars so you dont just see the same cars over and over again. You have a nice choice between nice exotic cars to some Honda look a like cars with rims and spoilers. Other cool things about the game are that you can arrest people that have don...
THE GOOD: - The city of L. A. - The details - The soundtrack - The bullet time jumps - A nice story
THE BAD: - Too short - The cars are hard to control - When you're playing, what you see the most is the loading screen - Too easy on some mission, too hard on anothers
SUMMARY: True crime. Think twice before buying. If you are a expert player, you'll beat the game in two days, but if you're not so a expert player, it can be hard sometimes. I'll say that if you want a game of this type, you should try GTA: vice city. Extras: The game has some extras, like unlocking cars, guns and combat combos. And if you collect 20 or 30 dog bones, you'll unlock Snoop Dogg as a character. But in the giant city of LA, who'll find all the bones? It's a cool game, but not THAT cool..
THE GOOD: high detailed fings (streets people etc.) FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOM to roam cant think OLD MEN HAVE WEAPONS AND DRUGS BADASS GRANDPA'S
THE BAD: YOUR AD HERE
cant be bothered typing here
SUMMARY: it is a game called true crime streets of la and it is quite good and OLD MEN HAVE WEAPONS AND DRUGS WOOO HOOOO the graphical qaulities of the game are rated excedingly detailed by me and my fellow companions GAHOY GLAVIN-MAVIN *SNORT* I HAVENT HELPED ANYBODY BY TYPING THIS REVIEW i was bored
Not having to repeat a mission (unless you want to, of course)
Cool sound effects.
Environment has alot of detail.
Is like GTA, but its nothing we haven't seen before.
Missions get repetitive (for example, too many "drive to" missions).
Nick's sayings can get annoying and repetitive.
The game is kinda short.
SUMMARY: True Crime: Streets of L.A is a very Grand Theft Auto-like kind of game. It borrows alot of GTA's elements, but it doesn't cause any "wow"s. True Crime has a lot of features, but its nothing we haven't seen before.
The missions can get repetitive, and some enemies are just so damn hard to fight that you feel like smashing your controller. >.<
This game has a very nicely done soundtrack, with a variety of songs from several genres, whether its fast-paced or simply slow, calm soul. Though some songs get played more than others, which gets a bit annoying.
In conclusion, I only recommend renting this game, since the game becomes useless when you beat it. I give this g...
THE GOOD: -Many in-game cheats so you dont have to buy a gameshark for cheats. -240 square miles of LA -catchy music -lots of guns/knives/rocket launchers/other weapons to choose from -lots of cool cars -won the best action game award
THE BAD: -as somebody else said, too many street crimes -the cop rating HAS to go -not realistic. Especially when there are 20 machine guns shooting at you and none of them hit (its happened to me about 5 times) -Fighting Zombies that cant be hurt by phisical attacks? Activision, you can do better than that -two star rating from Sony
SUMMARY: not much to say here. I will put a cheat here though.
Change the color of your car
while entering your licence plate, press L1+R1 and press up or down on the left analog stick,find a color you like, and let go. if you did this right, you will hear a sound
THE GOOD: I'd say 99.9% of the game is good! I love the mix of Kung Foo and weapons!
THE BAD: Could be mistaken for a rip off of Enter The Matrix
SUMMARY: To put it simply, this game is superb![br]It really takes somthing great to impress me and this game really did impress![br]Some gamers get a bad or the wrong impression of this game and think that it is a rip off of Enter The Matrix<a href="http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/index.php?fn=browse_forum&f=52&d=11414" target="_blank">The forum is here!</a> but anyone who gives the game a chance will tell you that True Crime has many better qualities than Enter The Matrix![br]The mix of Kung Foo and weapons adds a realistic feal to the game![br]You have had the chance in GTA to be the Criminal now be the Cop!
THE GOOD: -Large area to move around freely -Featured landmarks of L.A.
THE BAD: -SHORT storyline (completed all 3 branches in less than a week) -Annoying crime alerts popping up every minute -controls aren't the best(have room for improvment)
SUMMARY: this game was advertised to be better than the GTA series..IT'S NOT! It isn't even close! The advertisements make the game look great when it really isn't. The storyline is way to short, which can be completed in less than a week (all 3 branches) While on a mission what seems like millions of crime alerts pop up, which you have the choice to pursue or not they just get annoying! Some fighting missions are difficult and the controls may be difficult to get used to. If your looking forward to buying this game I suggest you don't because it is a waste of money and time!
THE GOOD: - 250 square miles of LA - i'm not into rap, but i was good to listen while cruising
THE BAD: - Linear gameplay - Short quite easy and not very interesting missions - very repeatative random crime - pressing one button puts you in several modes, can get in the way
SUMMARY: Since gta3 hit the scene late 2001 on ps2 there has been talk of a gta style killer game. I later found out it was true crime street of LA. By the way magazines and people have hyped it on the web it was going to own gta. Massive map, branching storylines with 100 missions and the open ended randon crime generator..it promised to be the game that could last for months! GTA sounded like it was in trouble. There was promise also of superor gameplay such as combat gameplay to rival tekken.
First of all i start on the map size. GTA3 and VC map was around 10 square miles. It felt big but you can get around the place in around 3 minutes depending on vehicle. True crimes map is 250 square miles of LA..with 100s of landma...
