True Crime: New York PC Plans

Aspyr announces the PC edition of True Crime: New York City will be released in January 2006, allowing you to play bad cop/worse cop in the Big Apple. The PC edition of the console crime game comes as no surprise since DTP announced their plans to publish it in Germany (story). Here's the skinny:
Aspyr Media, Inc. announced today they will publish True Crime®: New York City for the PC, with an anticipated release in January 2006. True Crime: New York City is licensed from Activision.

Wield the ultimate power as a rogue street cop in New York City. You are Marcus Reed, a former criminal turned cop, using and abusing your authority to hunt down the murderer of your mentor while cleaning up the 'hoods of New York City, from Harlem to Chinatown.

True Conflict. True Power. True New York.

Features:

*Street Cop Life*
Bust criminals, take down foreign and local gangs, search and seize, extort, interrogate, and dispense justice your way - by the book or indulge in the temptations of the job.

*Rule New York City*
Free-roaming authentic neighborhoods, GPS-accurate streets and subways, landmark buildings, and countless interiors.

*Dynamic Environments*
Unprecedented environmental gameplay - use ovens, stoves, machines, coolers, pots, pans, chairs or anything else you can grab to pound enemies.

*High-Speed Shootouts*
Race through the streets of New York in shootouts! Pull off stunts with motorcycles, sports cars, trucks, buses, and more.

*Brutal Combat Styles*
Switch fighting styles on the fly from street fighting to a variety of martial arts modes, opening up an array of moves and strategies to take down enemies.

*Heavy Weaponry*
Use high-powered police issue weaponry, bats, swords, and other melee weapons, obtain black market arms like flamethrowers, grenade launchers, and more.

True Crime: New York City is rated "M" for "Mature" and will soon be available for preorder through Aspyr's website. For more information, visit Activision's official site,

I liked this game for the PC. If they made it so you can use force feed back wheel it waould've been better. Never found all the bones in first game what did you get if you fond all them? Also I liked the music I hope they put in more bands and more music. What was cool was I ripped songs got 2 free cd's worth of music and only paid like 30$ for game.

I feel silly playing this, living in NY. I don't want to see a pathetic CGI simulation of my own house! These Activision *****s went around and photographed our houses for the textures? Next time I see any of these Activision people snooping around the neighborhood, I'm going to beat them with a baseball bat, steal their car and go for a free-roaming, dynamic joyride.

I would think that if the original publisher, in this case Activision, is handing the title off to another publisher,that would be a pretty clear indication that they do not expect it to sell well.

The first game suffered BADLY from control issues on the PC. If they did a straight up copy of GTA 3/Vice City/San Andreas's pc controls it would be a much better game.

But one thing I did like is even if you failed a mission you would get a cut scene that reflected the mission failing, which was nice.
But overall it was/is a cheap version of GTA series.


hmmm, I guess I saw it the other way around.
The controls on the PS2 were kinda crappy, but when I got it over on PC, it felt a lot better using the mouse for a lot of things. I still used a PS2 style game pad, but had the mouse and keyboard for other functions.

I will probably pick it up, as I like the chasing of baddies. The first game I did 100/102 chases successfully, I rarely let them go. It was nice how they "stopped" the game for you to do other stuff.

I think they mean "bats, swords, and other melee weapons" in addition to "high-powered police issue weaponry".

True Conflict. True Power. True New York.


If it's like the last game, it's a true console port (and not worth your time in the least).

Had a blast with the first one on PS2 and PC.
When it got to PC it was nice since the aiming was a hell of a lot better with the mouse.

(ala GTA)
