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

Trivia

There are numerous references to Grand Theft Auto hidden throughout the city (for example, a billboard featuring a take off on the GTA pink bikini picture). See more »

Goofs

The police cars in the game have normal license plates such as the way they say California at the top then under it they have random numbers and letters. However, a real police car would say CA Exempt and under it would be all numbers, no letters. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
George: They call it the City of Angels. Funny. In my 30 years here, I haven't seen a single one.

Crazy Credits

In the opening, Nick side-kicks the screen, and the bottom of his boot becomes the Luxoflux logo. This is followed by a humorous phrase and sound effect, such as "Ride the Donkey!" and the sound of a donkey braying. See more »

Nothing can top GTA, BUT...
15 February 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Don't listen to frank gifford. I don't know who gave him a computer to use, but he's wrong.

Sure, there are games that will and have taken the GTA go anywhere, do anything gameplay and the attitude that keeps you playing, but there was so much put into True Crime that you have to applaud it. Russel Wong must have gotten a lot of cash for lending his voice to this game, because he's all over it. There are hours of his dialogue, wisecracks and his grunts and groans as his character, Nick Kang, fights. Christopher Walken is in here as well, playing the old friend of Nick Kang's father.

The major similarity to GTA is that you can do what you want when you want, and you can go on to the next mission when you feel like it. The twist is that you're a cop and if you act violently, you become a bad cop, making cops your enemy as well.

There is a large soundtrack- about 50 songs or so- that are unedited. There are also some nice cheats and options as well for replayability.

So If you're looking for a game to hold you over until the next GTA, this is definitely it.

Sound: 8/10 Graphics: 8.5/10 Gameplay: 8.0
