    Is it also possible to lock them in fridges, or give them tickets?

    I'm not interested unless you can force a Vegan to eat meat... at gunpoint.

    And then give them a ticket, or something.

    Oh yes the true crime series. True crime streets of la was the first one and it too was fun. Had a great soundtrack too, i even remember the lyrics to one of the rap songs cause it was so catchy

    It's the true crime in the streets
    it's through the roof and they'll
    shoot ya if ya comin' to testify with the truth


    that is pretty good lyrics for a video game!

    Does the story in this one also switch from B-grade supercop plot to Big Trouble in Little China and back again?

    Seriously, from drug dealers to supernatural dragon and back again at the drop of a hat.

    It stays pretty grounded the whole time. It's actually a pretty good action movie plot, as they go. Lawrence Fishburne is fantastic in it.

    To be honest, I've had a lot of luck buying sandbox games at budget prices what with Scarface and Just Cause. This is only four quid on the PC, so maybe why not.

    I actually kind of love these games. They both have a real nice cinematic flair and are fun to play. And Christopher Walken is in both of them, so yeah, I had to play them.

    I actually reviewed this for TalkXbox.com. In general, I agree with Tube in that it's quite surprisingly a fun game. However, it did in fact take me 3 hours to get through the game's tutorials, what with all the freezing and crashing. The one magic time they didn't lock up, it only took about half an hour.
