TRUE CRIME Is Good But It's No GTA...
GTA's Controlls, Music, & Simplicity Have It All Over TRUE CRIME...
TRUE CRIME Has Some Nicer Graphics, But Not Mutch Nicer Than GTA... The Missions Are Cool... But The Free Roam Is Kinda Blah...
& What's With All This Auto Slowmo Crap In TRUE CRIME...
Most of the time, It BLOWS & Many More Times It Gets Ya Killed!
Oh Yeah, Did Anyone Else Notice The Odd Flashing/Glowing Trees That Appear Now & Again... WTF!
GTA double RULES, BUY IT NOW!!!

I'm purchasing the Grand Theft Auto: Double Pack today, anyway. When it comes to comparring GTA: DP and True Crime, in my mind, two games in one package seems extremely tempting. I'll probably get True Crime: Streets of LA for Christmas, but right now, GTA: DP is my main priority.

This whole nicer graphics argument i think is no longer valid with the revamp of the new charcther models in the xbox version. The graphics IMO look real nice on the new version.

So they updated GTA slightly for Xbox? If so, even another reason to buy it. Does it support custom soundtracks, and do they have the same radio stations as they did in GTA III and VC?

it supports custom soundtracks on vice city they're tapes on GTA3 they're CDs they have the same radio stations and the graphics have been updated for xbox and it's not like the ps2 version cuz on ps2 it's like it slows down alot or somethin like it blurs on xbox it doesn't do that and when cars catch on fire and blow up they look more real.:cheers: great game!

Relax, BananaMan, take a deep breath. ;)

:cuss: I really thought True Crime was gonna blow the doors off GTA/VC....now I've got serious doubts. Might have to spring for the double pack after all.

Well after I got outa class yesterday I went to my Local GameStop and I got the GTA3 DP. Talk to the guys there. It was tough to choose between TC and GTA3. I had played GTA3, but never all the way through, heck on the original I didnt even get out of the first part of the city.

But I had spent hours on GTA and VC just fooling around, taking every car I could and running amuk.

And TC did look very cool, and I was new, something I had never played before. And it's was of depicting fighting deffinatly looked a whole lot better in some ways to GTA3.

But I had heard some no so good things about TC, and I read afew reviews about not haveing all your abilities at the start, Like being able to do ground hits. I mean GTA3 you had all your abilities when you start, you can take any car (as long as it's not locked), and you can fire any gun or work any weapon you can get your hands. I guess what I am trying to say is the the Cop you play in TC is supposed to be a trained cop. But thats just my own opinion.

So I took GTA3 Dp back home and I played it for about 45 min. What can I say its a HUGE improvment visualy when compared to it's PS2 counter part. getting the hang of the driving controls took some time, infact I still try to drive the Xbox version like I used to in PS2. Kinda drives me nuts with hte accel on the right trigger and the brake on the left trigger and the all important hand brake being X. I would try to accel with hte letter keys, and Bah! Lets just say I have smash up afew cars by getting the controls screwed up!

So after playing it for 45min, I took it back to GameStop, I cant tell you the look all the store workers gave me when I said I wantedto retunr it. LOL, they couldn't believe it. Well after I talked to them, they basicaly said the when compared to TC GTA3 was a better buy. You get two games for the price of one.

So I went back home with GTA3 agian, and this time I played it alittle more, and to tell you the truth, I like it. Doing the main story missions are cool. But I like doing the side missions, like taking a police car and catching the crooks, or driving like a maniac to get people to their destinations and to the hospitol. Now those are fun!

I have been heading towards Gta the whole time and true crimes just didn't interest me wheni read a whole bunch of articles on it from quite awhile ago.

I think they made that blur affect for all the potheads out there...yea I turn it off first thing. Really makes the graphics look bad.

I like both TC and GTA. I just can't into the good cop rating in TC. I keep randomly frisking people and if I find a gun on them I can't help but shoot them with it. Some lady called me a b!tch when I frisked her and began kicking my @$$... Big fun !!!

the blur effect is a myth. The truth is Craig T. Nelson owns and you all know it.

Seriously though.....i'll get GTA over TC just cuz i dont want to play a cop.....and all the reasons already listed.

A myth :huh: Wtf you talking about willis? It's an option in the game called "trails" by defualt it's on. What it does is give you the effect of speed, IMO it's worthless and should be turned off.

Got my GTA: Double Pack yesterday! I forgot how much I enjoyed this game... Unfortunately, I also forgot how tough it can be in some spots, ah well, that's what makes it fun right?

Has anyone else's froze on their Xboxes? Mine has like, 'locked-up' no fewer than three times. (Usually during loading sequences). I save all the time, but I wonder if I should get a new copy instead? Opinions? :(

btw, anyone who hasn't yet played this game- You gotta try it out, it's a blast!:

Well so far GTA3 has not froze on me, but I did get e DDE when I was trying to first load it. Other then that, no probs. To fix the DDE I just turn off my Xbox with hte game still in it, and I turn it back on, 98% of the time it works like a charm.

Because people like to shove there opinions down others throats.

I say buy what you want. I went with the GTA double pack. 2 amazing games for the price of 1.

I made a TC thread in the action games forum (because true crime is a GAME, and i figured thats where it should go instead of the general chat....but whatever) a week or so before its release...but people have a habit of doing whatever they want, so i say let em be. No ones gonna change em.

I just laugh at the fact now that all the fanboys are raving about GTA now that it is on xbox when a few months ago they all said it sucked.

Feel free to dig up all my comments about GTA. Ive always loved the series and have been waiting for it to come out on Xbox. And point out the "fanboys" that have been bashing it, and now are praising it
