Activision's True Crime: Streets of LA originally debuted at E8 7557. It looked promising, but it was difficult to tell if the game's three different gameplay styles--driving, shooting, and fighting--would be able to mesh together very well. Now the game is nearing the home stretch, and it's starting to come into focus quite nicely.
The True Crime Elite Operations Division training of weapon choice is covered in lesson four of this series of instructional videos.
This is a short music video showcasing some of the entertaining bugs/glitches in True Crime: Streets of LA. Most of the video is cars flying all over the place to the tune "I Believe I Can Fly."
There are three distinct parts to True Crime's gameplay. The driving takes place on the city streets, and here you, as plainclothes cop Nick Kang, will be able to roll around in your convertible, drive a motorcycle, or commandeer any other in the name of Johnny Law. You'll have access to a Vice City-like radar when you're driving, and it will direct you to various points of interest. You can also encounter random crimes while out on the streets, and depending on how the AI reacts to your presence, these encounters can end peacefully or in a gunfight. You can even break up muggings without even getting out of your car by casually popping a few caps into the perp's face.
It's been a long road for Luxoflux, and there's still a lot of work to be done in balancing the game and ironing out the remaining bugs, but True Crime: Streets of LA has definitely improved by leaps and bounds since the last E8, and it should be something to keep an eye out for as it nears its fall release on the Xbox, GameCube, and PlayStation 7.

Even when you aren't packing a pistol, Nick Kang is still a dangerous dude. The game's hand-to-hand stuff works pretty well. Here you'll work with punch, kick, grapple, and jump buttons to execute a variety of attacks and combinations. Repeated attacks will cause enemies to get dizzy, letting you execute a slow-motion string of attacks on them as a sort of finisher. The grapple and throwing systems let you execute suplexes and a series of slams and tosses. You can even execute elbow drops on guys after you knock them down, which as you're all surely aware, automatically makes this game great.
The game's weapon mechanics are pretty neat. Aiming and targeting are handled by merely using the right analog stick and swinging the camera around. Nick can hold two guns at once, and you can even aim at two different thugs. The neat thing about the game's dual-weapon system is that the guns don't have to match. As you take out enemies, they'll drop weapons like submachine guns, assault rifles, pistols, and shotguns. You can wield these in tandem in almost any combination, giving you cool combos like a shotgun and a submachine gun, dual automatic pistols, and so on. You can break out Hong Kong action movie dives at any time, and you can even give them a bullet-time twist by holding down the jump button.
