CVG - Oh True Crime, we hardly knew you. Okay, that's not strictly true.
True Crime: Streets of LA debuted in 2003, when Activision decided it wanted a piece of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto flavoured pie.
It was a serviceable open-world action title with a really annoying and occasionally offensive main character. It scored decent reviews and faded into the background, quickly forgotten by all but a handful of people.
Fast forward to 2005 and True Crime hit the streets of New York City. Still green with GTA-envy, it earned middling review scores and stumbled into a packed retail highway where it was promptly run over by other higher-profile titles.
