TRUE CRIME-NYC PICS TOO

Unread post by 100 » September 27th, 2005, 5:29 pm

True Crime: Streets of L.A. was arguably the most successful games inspired by the Grand Theft Auto series. It boasted 240 square miles of Los Angeles, with every street however big or small present inside. It was an action packed drama-filled storyline that told the story of Nick Kang and also had consequences for every action you made - even as insignificant as stopping a random street thug. It also featured an impressive and massive soundtrack that can easily rival the best games out there. Expanding on this success, Luxoflux has taking the elements that made True Crime: Streets of L.A. the success it was, and expanded on them to create a well-anticipated sequel. This time, set in the Big Apple, True Crime intends to take you through an experience that makes you feel like living a movie.



While Nick Kang may be a thing of the past, there is a successor to take his place. Marcus Reed, a rogue street cop that resembles Kang on a personality level. If you remember from the past, Kang was a cop with a bad streak. While he may have had good intentions, he had no qualms about doing anything, no matter how extreme, to further his cause. He also was a snarky individual with one-liners that were downright annoying. Reed may be a more likeable hero than Kang but he is just as tough. He is a rare breed of police officer as he has the dubious distinction of being an ex-con. And unlike Martin Lawrence playing Miles Logan in the movie Blue Streak, Reed isn't just masquerading as a cop but rather it is his job every single day.



The story revolves around Reed's quest to find the murderer of his mentor and bring him to justice. Whether that justice is to Reed's discretion or the law remains to be seen, however. You will discover things about Marcus' past and clean up Manhattan while you are at it. Just like the first True Crime, you can choose to do it as a law-abiding police officer or an out-of-control reckless time-bomb. You can apparently extort, interrogate, search and seize. I hope the searching is a lot more accurate and realistic. In the first True Crime, it seemed as everyone, especially nearly every single little old frail grandma, had illegal drugs on them. If you had played as a bad cop and wanted to go to the good side, random street searches could get you there incredibly fast. It didn't seem to make any sense at all.



One of the best parts of True Crime was the fully detailed and accurately constructed city of Los Angeles. If you knew the city and its streets, you had a big advantage in the game. Any street or shortcut you've used in real life is accessible in the game. True Crime: New York City does not disappoint in that aspect. It boasts a completely recreated Manhattan, including famous landmarks, the entire subway system, and real neighborhoods from Hell's Kitchen to Times Square. The streets are GPS-accurate so if you are a native New Yorker or have been in the area repeatedly, you will be able to cruise around with ease.

^^^^^^^^^^^ DO YOU SEE THAT GAS PRICE?!?!?!

LOL is that what it really is in NY right now?!?! In L.A., it's more like $2.90, some places going to $3.00 JUST FOR REGULAR! Pretty soon I'm gonna have to buy IRregular gas, this is ridiculous.

I know he isn't gonna be the most popular guy on thsi site, but Bill O'Reilly (if you watched his show recently) has been really critical of the gas and oil industires for ripping off the American public, and saying that several professors have proven wrong their claims that their prices are based ont he market, saying they take advantages of the public's lack of market knowledge (example - They raised the gas prices ridiculously in the south to $5.00 a gallon right after the Hurricane although the market was barely affected).

He thinks that the industry should set an example by sacraficing 10% of just it's profit margin, they make trillions every day, they are just ripping everyone off.

No there are a hundred places that look like that in both Manhattan and the Boros. Where Nicolas Cage was from was Brighton Beach which is a high density Russian neighborhood that's on the far edge of Brooklyn.

That is like saying you though Hollywood was safe but then there is North Hollywood. Any big city is like that, there is good and bad parts.

Ma bad, i screwed up with the verbal cordex on that 1, heres a hint:


To get ur rouge meter to lower with all the heat off, u have to flash ur badge, n' to flash ur badge u have to press "Select" on the ps2 dualshock 2 controller, reminds me of somethin, everytime a cop starts to shoot at me just cause i didnt flash the badge during a crime if i took ma gun out, i flash the badge so he would stop shooting, get in a good position, n' blow him away any way i want, lethal(red), normal(green) or even nutralising(blue). Damn it i am not a good gamer, but i beat the major cases within a week. N' yes i used cheats.
