So can this be classified as a reboot or a spiritual successor to True Crime?

Think of it as a spiritual successor. Though widely considered a reboot, the map of Hong Kong isn't based on GPS data, and there's no randomly generated crimes that I've seen (so far) like the original titles. SE didn't purchase rights to the True Crime name either, so had to remove it from the title. I'll have the review up later this week.

Edit: I take that back....there are random crimes. I found a couple late last night while wandering around hijacking trucks.

Actually it started as "Black Lotus", then it became TC:Hong Kong. Hard to say how close it is to the original idea, but it seems to have turned out well.
