True Crime: Streets of L.A.

Having come across this, I can't help but get excited over True Crime. I really enjoyed GTA3 / Vice and from what I've seen this will potentially be even better. Conveniently, it will also be released right alongside the new Xbox GTA Double Pack (Nov 4th). I know which one's getting my money.

 

I know, I know. It sounds exactly like a bigger, badder GTA. But that's exactly what I'm craving. I think I'll get it.

I commend your correct use of "piqued," but there is no reason to add an apostrophe to make the plural "Nazis."

 

Hahaha!!

 

In that case, your name needs amendment.

 

Adam should be capitalized.

Apple is spelled wrong.

There is a missing space between the two words.

Finally, there is a missing apostrophe.

 

It should be "Adam's Apple".

 

Ok, Ok. That was weak. :oops:

I love what Luxoflux have done in the past, and I'm glad they've been given the room to do such an ambitious title, but the PS2 demo left me a little cold. Seemed to be a "jack of all trades, but a master of none" to coin a phrase...

Uh oh. Do you wanna elaborate?

Or, it could be a truncated/misspelled "Adam, s'appelle" in some really awkward usage of French (for "Adam, is called").

 

Ok, that was weaker. :green:

I posted some thoughts based on the demo in another True Crime thread a while back, and I suspect that they are similiar to Brian's doubts. There are a lot of components to juggle, and they seem to be working on some interestingly epic stuff, but the driving section suffered from lack of traffic and a dull handling model, the shooting bit felt like I wasn't really doing anything more than pushing the stick vaguely in the direction of some bad guys and pressing fire a lot (the camera is totally unsuitable for shooting accurately, so they've added a lock-on that is about as enthusiastic as that of Tomb Raider rather than fix it), and the beat-em-up engine, well. Lets just say that I had more fun trying out Tao Feng. Its easily the worst element in the game.

 

This was a good month or two back, though (on the issue of OPS2M I bought for the Soul Calibur II and Colin McRae 04 demos) so its possible they can apply a bit more polish to the handling of everything in time.

What about in comparison to GTA3?

 

Does GTA3 drive any better or shoot any better?

Gamespot's review is up. Only a 7.2.

 

I think I'm gonna cancel my pre-order and do something else with my money. Not because of what Gamespot rated it, but rather, what they described as the core of the gameplay doesn't seem very appealing to me. I still want to play it at some point, just not at new release pricing.

I played it some yesterday. Its not a bad game. I like how you can drive around and then get a call for a crime, like a drug bust, bank robbery, prostitution, etc...then you can decide if you want to go handle it or just continue on your current path. One thing that I DID not like was I was walking around trying to arrest people and no one had anything on them until I found this goth girl who I arrested and found drugs on. Now I went through like 10 people and then it just so happened that she had drugs on her.

This sounds like racial profiling to me. :D
