True Crime: New York City is missing the key words Streets of that would enable people to easily identify it as the sequel to 2003's True Crime: Streets of LA. Other things it's missing include an ending that makes sense, a decent framerate, and missions that don't crash the Xbox destroying two hours of unsaved gameplay.
According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs
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.
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.
