    This game is a big disappointment. The graphics look like they were 1 and a half years old, but tweaked up. Driving is unrealistic and sticky. Shooting scenes feel and controling your character feel retarted. Dialoge and phrases are extremly lame. I dont think if you were about to run someone over, or steal their car they would say stupid stuff like that. Close combat is the only thing I This game is a big disappointment. The graphics look like they were 1 and a half years old, but tweaked up. Driving is unrealistic and sticky. Shooting scenes feel and controling your character feel retarted. Dialoge and phrases are extremly lame. I dont think if you were about to run someone over, or steal their car they would say stupid stuff like that. Close combat is the only thing I thought was ok about the game. But soon that gets repititive and boring. The missions are somewhat dry and interesting, I didnt care anything about the storyline because it was lame. The only other good thing I like about this game is the HUGE map. One big area of L.A to drive around in. But soon that gets boring, nothing to do but explore and see and hear the same junk people say and wear. I am giving this a 2 due to the close combat, and Large map Expand

    A total disappointment. It won't even let me map the driving controls to any other device except the friggin' mouse! It's totally ridiculous for a driving game to have mouse support for steering! The only other option is by driving with your keyboard.... duh! I got a steering wheel, I got a joystick, I got a gamepad with analog thumbsticks.... goddammit! Lemme use 'em! A total disappointment.

    As with best intents that could have been great, honestly when hailed as "a driving game." in which you will spend 240 square miles of LA's sun baked asphalt jungle, who was the snapper head who decided the PC version of this game will not support a driving wheel. Look ma, I am driving with two fingers...If you make a driving game, or that claim facilitate wheel support!!!

I disgustedly threw this coaster back in the box and fired up GTA 3, and have hopes Driv3r will support the wheel Expand

    No gamepad support kills all the enjoyment as the game is hell to play with kdb+mouse. you would need at east two hands on the keyboard to enjoy this. one of my worst buys.

  1. It’s this opened-ended type of storytelling mixed with diverse gameplay that makes True Crime: Streets of L.A. a decent console port and one of the better action games you can play on the PC.
  2. Although the multiplayer options seemed underdeveloped, the strong plot element and gameplay mechanics will keep most satisfied with their purchase.
  3. A lazy port of a game that wasn't all that great to begin with. Certainly, it has some great ideas in it, but they're all hampered by either having a weak implementation or a buggy interface, and all too often both.
