7.0

Great Game ,but needs a lot of improvements!

The good:

-Realistic Graphics.
-The best game on PS2 to picture New York city, in my opinion and expertize.
-Strong and effective sound effects, voice acts match the characters.
-Gangsta Cop life, bad and good cop system.
-Interactive environment, almost everything is destructible and usable.
-Ability to enter every shop and hotel in the city.
-BIG arsenal of weapons, and a lot of fighting arts.
-Music System.

The bad:

-Too many glitches that made this game unwanted.
-Storyline is not very interesting, missions are all repeating.
-Sound glitches
-Cars slides on the street like on ice, there is no strong physic engine for cars.
-Animations contain a lot of glitches.
-Some walls in Buildings aren't solid, and you may stuck in a closed ground.
-Your fellow police officers are stupid, there AI is pretty much low.

Summary:

Overview
This game is pretty much realistic because of both, the story and the graphics. This game pictures NY as it is in the real life, with all of the landmarks. The pedestrians are the nicest part to complete the game, the player can interact with them in many ways, the ability to frisk them and arrest them is the best. The way Activision wanted this game to be is brilliant, but it turn out to be awful with the massive number of glitches. Glitches that can occur in row!

Graphics
The graphics and models are very detailed and their texture is in high quality, the characters models are kind...

True Crap

The good:

New Features such as being able to go in buildings Solid Rap Track

The bad:

So many glitches, it's nearly unplayable.

Summary:

True Crime: New York City, how we wanted to love you, how we wanted you to be a great game everyone could enjoy, how you failed us. I really wanted this to be a good game. LA was a classic but this one, ain't worth shit. Seriously, if you ever come across this game just light it on fire and run like hell. I mean, this is the game you would buy someone for a practical joke. Anyway, why is True Crime NYC such a bad game? Well, first off, the game is nearly unplayable. There are so many glitches than humanely possible. It freezes at random moments. Which can be really annoying. Especialy if...

Better then the last

Summary:

First off, this game is way better then the last True Crime. There is many new features like changing your clothes, get new haircuts, every building is accessable, buying and modding cars, buy new music, more weapons also trains and taxis to get around.

You play a young African American gang banger-turned cop and solve street crimes that follows a fresh story. There are about 5 different crime familys;each one you work your way through. If your not into the story mode, theres always an option to free roam. Help take down crime in the city of Manhattan, and clean up neighborhoods...that mean...

8.0

Better than L.A

The good:

The graphics are decent, you don't have to do missions, you can free roam when ever you want, the street crimes are much cooler than before, now you can go inside buildings (there are over 100 interiors), so you aren't just on the streets all of the time. You can now buy different costumes for your character, as well as weapons, and you can buy food to replenish your health (a bit of a rip off from GTA) but still, this is a good game.

The cars now have a more weighty feeling to them unlike the cars in L.A, you can't fly down the street, and it feels as if your car is glued to the road. nice improvement. Oh yeah, the motor bike has been included this time round!

The bad:

Some of the missions are a little hard, the controls have been re-arranged, so players of L.A will find it a little hard to adjust to these controls. The cars are a bit crappy, (apart from the bikes) and there is too much swearing.

Summary:

I think this game is better than it's predecessor, True crime:streets of LA. The graphics are much better, the cars are more fun to drive, and this time round, when solving street crimes, the local cops come in and help you out if you get into trouble. Very realistic indeed.

I just got the game today for Christmas and I was not disappointed in the slightest, it took me a while to adjust to the revamped controls but other than that this is a good game.

4.0

Mediocre at Best

The good:

+ Graphics
+ Free-roam
+ Several Vehicles
+ Weapons
+ Fighting
+ Multiple Buildings to enter
+ Cause mayhem or stop it

The bad:

- Glitching
- Car control lacks
- Repetitive gameplay
- Repetitive bad guys
- Repetitive missions
- Bland at times

Summary:

For $50 this game is fairly overpriced. The game is good, it just has too many faults and it lacks several things.

But for off, I'll talk about it the (few) positive things.

The graphics of the game are fairly good, though surprisingly the best on the Playstation 2 version as the Gamecube and Xbox versions just lacked quality. However, even though the graphics were fairly good, again they lacked and it wasn't a very pretty game. The free-roam is the second good thing about the game, a representation of NYC as well as even having the choice to entering a large number of buildings and just abou...
