Hey has anyone played this game, i have read a lot of reviews and stuff but i have learned to not always beleive what reveiwers say so i am asking other players because players are better reveiwers than the real reveiwers cause most reveiwers are journalist not hardcore gamers. So any help on this if it is close to vice city or its better or worse. anything you like or dont like.

way to back up your beliefs with facts and information

i like this game more than gta3/vc but that's only because i've beaten both gta3 and vc on the PC and the fun has worn off, true crime is new and different

I like true crime alot, huge damn city. It really IS LA. Although I did find a pretty lame bug that kept me from catching a perp. Somehow we both tried to enter the same car and he and the car were un touchable. Other then that I like it alot. I dislike the soundtrack, rap sucks, custimizable though.

fanboys are funny they shout so loud but say so little!

as for true crime if "gameplay" is high on your list of priorities you'll love it.

I particularly like the fight scenes, they're very well realised & give a whole new dimension to the game.

my only complaint is that the 3d engine doesn't do the xbox justice(asthetically) .

yeah but if people say True Crime is poor, what does that make them fanboy of? biggrin.gif


IMO Its average.

Yes they recreated L.A but it doesnt look half as good as The Getaways recreation of London. Its like a GTA/Max Payne with hand-to-hand combat, I wouldnt say its brilliant, maybe one to rent. I also thought the soundtrack was rubbish too.

Hmm it's not only opininion that makes a fanboy it's a whole attitude.

check the first 2 replies for examples biggrin.gif

I think this game will attract that attitude because of it's stark similarities with gta.

I enjoyed GTAIII on the PS2 immensely. True Crime is fun, but there's so much fighting its almost like GTA meets Final Fight or something. The voice acting is horrible and the music is (and this is my opinion) horrible. The NAACP should jump all over this game. That's a joke.

Its not a bad game , I've played it a little and it seems VERY open ended. I spent like 3 hours just running around arresting ppl...lol I still prefer Gta but this is a good contender...

I think people will be much happier with the game if they evaluate it separately from GTA. It's not an "or" decision and the game was never meant to be exactly like GTA. There is a city, freedom of movement, and choice - that's it. It appears that those people who are looking for a supercharged GTA are disappointed while a good portion of those people who are playing the game on its own merits look to be having a lot of fun with it. It's like convincing a child to try new foods. That being said, I haven't played it much and have been wrecking havoc in Vice City riding my scooter and wielding my machete <I'm the only machete wielding scooter riding serial killer ever>.

Yes GTA Double Pack is both Vice city and GTA3.

I also think True Crime is average. The graphics are 10x better then GTA but I don't think the gameplay is as good. The Storyline of true crime is done better not that the story is actually better. The controls of True Crime are also harder. I dunno its a bit confusing to me. Crue Crimes AI is also pretty bad. Cars run you over too much. I don't think either game owns the other though. True crime is lacking in many areas and GTA is majorily lacking in the graphics.
