Product Details

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.!

4.0 out of 5 stars True Crime April 7 2004
For all of you game cube people that love Grand Theft Auto,this is the next best thing! It is a high class fighting game/killing game. With probly the best karate fighting there is on any game around. You can also pick characters all the way from Snoop Dog to a scrub on the streets! It is a halarious game. Your a cop,that has a very bad history. You father has disapeared becuase he was fingered, so your a cop out looking for revenge on the streets of L.A. You get awsome vehicals and all you need to do to get some action is shoot some people on the street,whip out some karate,or do some matrix,this is a high class game that is about as fun as you can get!

4.0 out of 5 stars True Let-Down Jan. 2 2004
By alkjdf
As an avid fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, I was really looking forward to True Crime. I mean, I was REALLY looking forward to it. It's too bad that they put all that work into it for nothing. There are so many things wrong with this game, but I'll only name a few: 1), the length. The game can be beaten in two days or less (if you can handle the extreme level of difficulty). Which brings me to the number 2), the difficulty. At a few points in the game, difficulty reaches near impossible. I nearly smashed my controller a few times. 3) No boats, planes, helicopters, bikes, nothin'. Just about ten different cars to choose from in this massive and pointlessly recreated Los Angeles.
This game was the biggest let-down in gaming history, as far as I'm concerned. It had so much going for it. I'm warning you, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. At the very most, rent it with a gift card at blockbuster.
It's sad, really.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars fake crime and take your mama out to dinner BAD! April 5 2004
First of all I'd like to point out that this game takes forever to load. Even for gamecube, for ps2, I'd understan, but gamecube.
The graphics are like simple plan singing a love song to guys! I mean that in a bad way. It's a cool game but the game play is terrible, and the levels are short.

Graphics aren't great, how many of the same person can you have walking down the street?? Game play not very realistic. I do not recomend anyone to buy this brand new. Rent it first then MAYBE by it used! GTA Vice City is much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get This only in gamecube March 3 2004
By A Customer
The game in gamecube as even better visuals that the one in the xbox, the game is kinda cool, nice fight engine, lots of replay value, the story si kinda dull (common TRUE CRIME? YOU FIGHT AGAINST A DRAGON FOR CRISHT SAKE). Nice sountrack if you like hip-hop and snoop dog. The only missing in this games are the bikes, BUT THE BEST IT'S THE APEREANCE OF SNOOP DOG, CHISTOPHER WALKER, AND MICHELLE RODRIGEZ

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 ›
