True Crime: Streets of LA – Second Opinion

Before I get started, let's get one thing out of the way—Thom has said pretty much everything there is to say about this game. Still, there are a few things I'd like to comment on when it comes to the adventures of Nick Kang.

True Crime: Streets of LA

Game Description: In True Crime: Streets of LA, you play as Nick Kang and comb the streets from inside a variety of vehicles as you embark on a series of 20 missions working for the law. Missions range from stopping robbery attempts to arresting jerks based on tips gleaned from informants., The streets of Los Angeles are being overrun with criminal scum and it's going to take a renegade ex-cop like you to clean them out for good. Drive, fight and blast your way through a massive, unpredictable story packed with exciting, ask-questions-later missions.

True Crime: Streets of LA – Review

Being one of the larger cities in the world, it's natural for LA to have a fair amount of crime; and being the media capital of the US (if not the world) means that said crime is usually treated as a spectacle (O.J. and Michael Jackson being two of the latest, greatest examples). Combine the amount of crime, the media-centric lifestyle, and a natural population of drivers who aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer and you've got a natural equation that equals the latest "action crime" videogame epic.

Minority Report

Game Description: You might not look like Tom Cruise, but that shouldn't keep you from pretending. Based on the Steven Spielberg film of the same name, Minority Report puts you in the role of the PreCrime officer falsely accused of murder. Now you're on the run from the very department that you've helped to develop, and you'll stop at nothing to prove your innocence. Using various weapons and gadgets from the movie, you'll scurry from locale to locale, collecting information and taking care of your enemies by any means necessary.

Minority Report – Review

Once upon a time, there was a little boy. This little boy loved only two things in the whole wide world. He loved videogames and he loved violent movies. The thing he loved most in the movies was when someone would get shot, or kicked, or thrown, and then they would smash through a window and fall a very, very long way down to their deaths. In the middle of endless Canadian nights, that little boy would stare up at the ceiling of his small room and wonder: Why can't I do that in a videogame?

Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War – Review

It seems that as long as there are videogames, there will be military-themed videogames. The most obvious explanation for the genre's continuing popularity is that gamers seem to love action, and the most obvious place to look for action is during a war. But which war? The Great War and the Korean War are fairly inaccessible, as evidenced by the fact that no one in the general public seems to know exactly why they happened, or who 'we' (by which, of course, I mean the American public for whom most of these games are made) were fighting.
