Summary

GTA with more balls!

The Good

The multiple fighting techniques are incredible. You can gun down someone, snipe them, or pull of some real-deal Jet Li arse-whoopin moves. the random optional missions you can do on the streets keep you entertained when your not doing the main story-line. Also, the goodcop/badcop scales can provide for a very custom feel, much like the high-acclaimed Star Wars: KOTOR where you can be a good jedi or be a dark-side thug....heck yes....True crime provides the freedom and action of GTA and the character adjustment of KOTOR.....plus you can play as the BADDEST gangsta to eva walk dem streets, yo! (not gonna spoil it for new-players)

The Bad

Nick is very cheesy...his lines are sometimes comic and sometimes they remind you of that friend who is the only one laughing when he tells a joke. You have to be a master of the Xbox controller to pull off some of the moves like going on 2-wheels, strong attacks, and aiming. The snipe option with your gun is hard to accomplish sometimes, but after a few tries, you'll be cappin lil' old ladys, closelining someone, and stealing a car all in a matter of seconds. So overall, the one-line comments and the controls are slightly odd but besides that, great game.

The Bottom Line

Buy this game....if you liked playing grand theft auto (im making alot of references to it, i know) then you will love this game.....and THATS the bottom line....kick-arse game
