True Crime: Streets of LA for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
Hit the mean streets of Los Angeles to dish out third-person vigilante justice in the style of Max Payne, Mafia, and Grand Theft Auto III. True Crime: The Streets of LA casts players as Nick Kang, an ex-cop who battles a dangerous underworld through 100 varied missions. Some assignments show influence of the popular GTA3, putting the player behind the wheel of a car or at the trigger of a gun, while others may call for more stealth and deception, or the use of the hero's impressive judo skills. Instead of resetting each level until the player gets it right, failure in a mission causes the story to branch in a different direction, leading to a more personalized role-playing experience.
