Storyline

Nick Kang was an LAPD homicide detective, up until his indefinite suspension due to his "loose-cannon" style and multiple uses of excessive force and property damage. However, his old Chief has brought him back and offered him a job with the EOD (Elite Operations Division), a recently-founded special unit which has jurisdiction over all of Los Angeles. Now as the EOD's first field agent, Nick can use the same over-the-top methods that got him suspended in the first place to take on the City of Angels' toughest criminals. In a wide, branching storyline, he'll have to stop powerful Russian and Chinese crime syndicates by driving, fighting and shooting his way through the streets of LA. Written by Anonymous

Good, fun game.
8 July 2004 | by reuel_thompsonSee all my reviews

True Crime is the type of game that you sit down at, have a good time and then you want to play it again. It isn't Grand theft auto and it isn't driv3r but it has some cool features that none of those games have. So if you want just a good, easy to pick up game which has no real depth or heavy plot then choose True Crime: Streets of L.A.

Graphics: 6/10 (big city but spread out and dull) Sound : 10/10 ( Loads of hip hop gangster music) Gameplay: 9/10 ( Some cool features but some flawed controls) Overall: 8.5/10 (A good game to sit down and play for a while)
