    The game is very fun to play and addictive, the cutscenes are very entertaining to watch... the game has some major flaws though, the camera angle, control flaws, etc the camera is very annoying, if it isn't the entertaining aspect of the game, i wouldn't keep playing it.

    Hmm there's something fishy about people who just come on and say "Perfect game!" I always assume they're one of the developers... Anyway, this is a LONG way short of the heights scaled by GTA:Vice City. Pretty much everything R.S. said above is true. The driving feels wrong, scenery pops up, and there's no "off-road" capability as there is in GTA, you can only really drive Hmm there's something fishy about people who just come on and say "Perfect game!" I always assume they're one of the developers... Anyway, this is a LONG way short of the heights scaled by GTA:Vice City. Pretty much everything R.S. said above is true. The driving feels wrong, scenery pops up, and there's no "off-road" capability as there is in GTA, you can only really drive on roads. The physics are decidedly dodgy too. I don't expect to reverse into a wall at 20mph and have my car flip 30 foot into the air. Controls are also very poor. The camera angles are lethargic and unhelpful, the fighting is repetitive, and the shooting slow (the bullets all travel, very visibly, at about 50mph). I could go on, but this thing doesn't do paragraphs and I hate large blocks of text. To sum up, a very poor cousin to Vice City. Not worth it. Expand

    Another great game let down by bugs. 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.

  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.
