I have only played a few hours of the new Grand Theft Auto series' and i can tell you that "True Crime N.Y.C." is better! Lots of cars, lots of guns, and lots of crimes. You are a cop who must fight crime in nyc. You can be a good cop or a bad cop, but either way you must earn money and respect. This is a "free roam" game but it also plays linearly with goals, sequences, and a storyline. While the crime scene sequences can become repetitive and boring, there are always goals and stories to complete that keep the game engaging and fun. And there is a Big Surprise at the end!
True Crime: New York City replicates the over-the-top violence and goofy sexuality of GTA, but trashes that series' friendly interface, gorgeous environment, and dependable physics. If there's a lesson to be learned here, it's that what made GTA so enjoyable weren't the mature themes, but the execution.
True Crime: New York City is a gritty sequel to "Streets of LA". Like "San Andreas", the game features an African-American protagonist and a darker tone. While it includes more content than "Streets", it also has numerous bugs. Visually, the color palette is drab and the graphics are mediocre. This is the probably the ugliest depiction of NYC I've ever seen in any game. It's filled with the usual missions you'd find in GTA-like games. While entertaining, the original "True Crime" is superior. Still, I would rate this with a 7.4 out of 10.
I actually enjoyed True Crime: New York City. Sure, the physics were laughably fake, and the storyline was terrible, and for some reason Ford Crown Victorias spawned more often than every other car combined, but the game was fun and addicting. A wide variety of vehicles, weapons and fighting styles were available, and all of them were fun to use. It has it's glitches, and gets frustrating and boring, but TCNYC can be fun once you get past the initial frustrations.
I enjoyed the game. The Combat was great, and the street crimes were good The map really captured Manhattan. Even though they didn't put the other boroughs, activition got it down right. However the game had so many errors, and game breaking glitches I stop playing it. The storyline was mediocre. I know the game had a lot stuff to do, and buy. But the glitches really **** it up. The physics are very bad too. Even though it has more interactions, it's not better than TCSLA.
SummaryPlayers assume the role of former gang member turned cop Marcus Reed as they fight crime on the GPS-accurate streets of Manhattan, complete with subways, hundreds of interiors, internationally recognized landmarks and real neighborhoods from Harlem to Chinatown to Times Square. Players navigate the city the way New Yorkers do, by taking...
