Hey guys, I didn't see any threads about this stellar game that's out on the PS3 and 360, so I'm making one.

Any of you guys try it? I've been playing it on the PS3 for the last few days and I've really enjoyed it. It's an interesting game in that it allows you to free roam and create havoc like in GTA, but also has a neat story in that you have do missions for both cops and gang members. It's got an honor system for both groups, too.

So, who else here enjoys the game?

I was pretty tempted to pre-order it, but all the bits and bobs of DLC annoyed me enough to eventually decide against it. Put most of my spare money in saves instead, so now I can't really afford it. Hoping for a demo or price-cut at the moment, with the only other way to play it being quasi-illegal (you know what I mean).

Also what's with all the faces? They seem really shiny for some reason

Game's pretty cool, but I've been preoccupied with Darksiders 2 (such an improvement over the first one). I'll probably just leech it off a friend or something when I go back to college.

I was a fan of True Crime since the first installment came out. I also signed up for the petition to bring back the game when they cancelled it a few years back. I'm still kind of sad because they renamed it and now it's no longer a True Crime game.

Honestly, I didn't realize it came out. I'm definitely getting it once I fix my PC.

Still debating it, looks a lot more interesting than I previously thought and Official Xbox Magazine gave it a 9/10. Whats the parkour like? Can you get onto the rooftops?

I liked the first two True Crime games, this one looks very promising. If I could afford it, I'd own it by now. My brother bought it on Steam and the whole community has been having nothing but problems with the game since launch, it won't load or anything, I saw him play for a few hours the first day it came out, and then he woke up the next day and it wouldn't work.

I'm not sure if that is fixed or not, if so, awesome. I would be getting it on consoles personally, but for the people planning to buy it on PC, I'd say look into that issue first, because it may or may not be fixed by now.


Yeah, whatever.

I've only been vaguely interested in it. I might pick it up in a future steam sale or something, but it's not high on my list really.

I've seen the gameplay it's selling point is based on the fact that you know martial arts and environmental kills.

Try reading what someone else has to say, instead of acting like an ignorant cunt.
I know it may be a little painful to see that someone disagrees with you, but you're able to better your personality by being open to criticism. Though if you want to stay like the obnoxious twat that you are, be my guest.

I'd atleast drop AC3. Those games already became dull after Assassins creed 2.
This game won't change up the formula very much.

your mom is illegal too. lol. fyi downloading games is a lot of work to do. I spent hours trying to get it from w-bb but the speed was so bad that I gave up. I finally got it off TPB. I think downloading stuff is like working for 3 dollars an hour.

Isn't discussion of piracy B& worth on NG forums? Stopped keeping track a while ago, although Sleeping Dogs was an ass to get to work. The original version which was uploaded to the 'shady' websites turned out to require a patch which downloaded off a Chinese server at about 100kb/s and was 1.4GB. Then once you DL this update, turns out the original version still won't work with it so you gotta DL another version which is 8.6GB!

I tried the first hour of the game, my thoughts on it so far are basically;

Combat is pretty average
Main character is a jerk
Might be cool

If you think you're working hard for those downloads and actually earn them, you might as well get a job and get games with the money you earn. That way you actually contribute to society.

There will be no further discussion about piracy. While we can't stop one from downloading the games from anywhere, it's a good idea to keep your mouth shut and not openly admit to conducting illegal activities.
