I rented this game awhile back after seeing it on the shelf at mediaplay. I was like, hmm, a Max Payne clone. I wonder how it plays?
Anyways, it was cool, had a good semi-deep story-line, and enough cool and unique stuff to be really different from MP.
I liked MP's story line alot, the graphic novel feel, the crime noir, all the background items like TV and radio (a Rockstar strongpoint, IMO).
But with all the hype of The Getaway and True Crime, the only really badass thing about those were the city layouts, and I think I owuld have to live in those cities to appreciate that effect.
And TC's shooting and aiming sucked. First time I was ever wishing for a mouse instead of a joystick. Almost impossible for me to aim at the head, and get upgrades. And the fighting upgrades and combos seemed lacking.
But in Dead to Rights, they had alot of stuff I liked. The aiming system was badass, easy to get headshots. The dog attacks, the fight scenes, the grapples, etc, all rocked.
Why doesn't this game get more press? I see some sequels are coming out also. TC should've been this good fighting and shooting wise.
