Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

The streets of Los Angeles are being overrun with criminal scum and it's going to take a renegade ex-cop like you to clean them out for good. As Nick Kang, your brutal reputation and lethal skills have landed you a nasty job: heading up an undercover task force to stop the Chinese and Russian gangs from turning the City of Angels into their hellish playground. Across hundreds of square miles of L.A., you've got to drive, fight and blast your way through a branching storyline comprised of a massive array of unpredictable missions, using stealth techniques, martial arts moves, and an ask-questions-later arsenal. Looks like the hardcore streets of L.A. just met their match.

Product Description

True Crime: Streets of L.A. lets you use your brutal reputation and skill with a gun to good use -- putting a stop to the scum that's ruining L.A.!

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing game June 26 2004
By A Customer
If you're a big Gamecube fan like me, this is the closest thing to GTA you'll see. The freedom of the game opens up a whole world of things to do. The game features a variety of missions, ranging from escaping the cops to beating up groups of strippers. Another great feature added to the game was the random crime system, which means that when you're driving around LA, the radio dispatcher will explain a crime situation to you and you have the option of pursuing the crime or ignoring it. If you solve it, you get bonus points, which can be used to unlock upgrades at 24/7 training centers, which allow you to upgrade fighting moves, guns, and driving abilities. There are bonus missions where you can unlock new guns, cars, and grapple combos. Besides that, you can frisk pedestrians for guns or drugs. One of the features of the game is that you can choose whether to be a good cop (best ending), okay cop, or bad cop. Each one has a different story line. Every action affects your karma, which determines what kind of cop you are. This game is a must-buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than GTA! March 2 2004
By A Customer
The biggest difference between this game and GTA is that in this game you're a cop. You bust/kill/arrest criminals. In GTA you can rack up 'stars' and the cops, swats, helicoptor, etc... will come after you. Its fun to battle them but the story missions are pretty not very fun. Then you change your clothes and lower 'stars' rating and go on with the game. In true crime, you're a cop and you battle thugs and cops too if you want, which is more interesting and fun. When you are not in mission mode and play 'free' mode, True crime rules. In GTA all you can do is kill few people so cops can show up. In true crime you get dispatch calls, you go bust hooker fighter, pimp war, drug deals, bank robbery, car jacking, pursuit.., tons of activities. You battle Mexican, Chinese, and black gangs too. Then you can lower your 'karma' or moral rating to negative and citizens & thugs will come after you and the cops will come too now. You can complete the missions being bad or good, it don't matter. But you still have to bust crimes to rack up medals points for buying better weapons, more variety of fighting moves, and more driving skills. Just that you are trying to complete the missions while going up against the whole L.A. Being a good cop basically means don't KILL people, instead you arrest them, shooting them in arm/leg to disable them, or just flash your badge to make them give up or fight. The shooting and fighting are deeper than GTA, driving about the same. Some missions you fight indoor, the first fight is at a Chinese restaurent, the CG scene is hilarious and when you fight all the tables and chairs get thrashed while the punk flys across the room! Cool effect. The control is a little sluggish BUT still good. You can do little matrix effect which adds more. You get to shoot two guns always! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Think OUTSIDE The GTA Box Jan. 6 2004
I was kind of skeptic about True Crimes after reading some of the reviews when it hit the streets, about it being a wanna-be GTA, bad camera angles, blah blah blah. I bought the game and it actually sat in the bag I bought it in for a week. WELLLL my holiday vacation rolled around, boredom set it "hey I got that True Crime game, lemme play it!". Well since that day I haven't played any other of my games since. The game is addictive from the beggining. It was kind of GTA'ish but when you figure out the concept of the game it goes a little deeper.
Unlike GTA where your some thug on the street tryint to become the ultimate crime boss, your a cop on the otherside tryin to crack down on the crime bosses. Starting off with NO shooting skills, NO fighting skills, NO credibility with the people you work for, just a bum. This is where the game can take you one of two ways or both. Choose to follow the story trail of some psycho who just shot your "would have been" partner which will lead you to some Russian mafia trouble (which includes club shootouts, bath-house brawls, sneaking "ninja style" into places without being caught ala Metal Gear), chasing down mafia suspects for leads, etc.. OR driving around what seems like a never ending L.A apprehending everthing from low-class street mugers and rapists to hi-profile movie stars being kidnapped, terrorists holding hostages, hijacked busses, stopping "Fast and the Furious" style street races, chasing down getaway cars for MILES with shooting out their tires (or their gas tank) as the only means to stop them and any other type of crime you could figure in real life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whats great about True Crime Streets of L.A Dec 29 2003
By Brian
I recently bought this game True Crimes streets of L.A . The game has every detail of the streets in it. The size of the map in the game is atleast 3 times bigger than vice city and twice as big as GTAIII. I am a fan of GTA games i would say this is like GTA 4 with bigger sizemap since its a real life map of L.A this is a unique game and another big step for realistic games. MISSIONS: As you may know already most of the games are made of levels that you must pass and some times you get frustrated that you give up.In True Crime streets of L.A you may skip the mission ones you have tried it but if you are that kind of person that must pass it you can.You can also forget the missions and go straight to the rampage that most teens(like me) love the games for WHILE your in the middle of missions.You can turn into a bad cop or be a good cop by arresting bank robbers, streets racers,you can stop riots,kidnappers,carjackers,arrest inmates that have escape,get in high speed chases, theres stand of,drug dealers,you can stop Illegal Chicken fights, well all that you can imagine in a city. WEAPONS:the weapons are great. There are cheap ones and great ones from beer bottles,knives,normal guns and then you can get shot guns, assault rifles , uzi , granade launghers and alot more. FIGHTING: the fightin is really awesome there is ,kick boxing,normal boxing,karate, and all those marcial arts stuff you can use. WEAPON AIM: this is the best aim ive seen in games. while you are drivin you can hold R1 and fire at enemy vehicles or criminals even just people you dont like in slow motion. its like the MATRIX when you shot in the car it slows down and so does when you are taking cover from enemies you dive and it goes in slow motion and shot at them.
