    It’s got some excellent gameplay ideas that are marred by sloppy execution and balance issues. A lot of these problems could have been fixed in the PC port, but they haven't been.
  2. There just isn’t enough punch in this game to make it last in today’s hardcore gaming market.
  3. Predictable, bland and boring, just like Nick Kang, the star of this routine action game that has been routinely converted from the consoles.
  4. The controls are awful...L.A. is nowhere near fully modeled. [July 2004, p.60]
  5. It looks like, well, a badly ported PS2 game with washed-out colors, graphical glitches, and only average textures and modeling. This, along with the appallingly bad driving sequences, horrible characters, plentiful cliches, and cringe-inducing dialogue, proves that unlike "Splinter Cell," not all console/PC marriages are made in heaven. [Sept 2004, p.77]

Overall it's great, but the controls can be annoying. Another "promising" title let down by the fact it was released before it was polished. Full Review »
