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.
