    I tells ya, its like I’m Realtime Worlds PR department….

    Leading Scottish based games developer, Real Time Worlds, is set to expand its Dundee workforce by over 30%, making it the biggest independent games company in Scotland.

    The news comes on the back of this month’s world exclusive of the firm’s eagerly anticipated new game, ‘Crackdown’, developed for Microsoft’s next generation console Xbox 360, at the X05 conference in Amsterdam. Hailed as a ‘GTA’ beater, Crackdown is scheduled for release in the second half of next year.[/quote:5b6daf605b]

    (Currently Visual Science is Scotchlands biggest independent game co.)

    I didn’t really play True Crime much at all. From what I saw, all of the areas looked exactly the same. Their hunt for realism backfired just as badly as it did for The Getaway. The great thing about the GTA series is that it has a host of memorable locations that always let you know where exactly you are. True Crime didn’t have that. Not only that, but it was way too big. You don’t need to make a city bigger just because the power is there.

    Believe it or not, but the Los Angeles transport system was designed for a steady flow of traffic that allowed commuters to pass from A to B with little hassle. It was not created to serve as a game level. I don’t know if they did, but they should have taken some creative licence and made the city fun to play in.

    After looking at a few options, I find LA the dullest city to set a game, visually and what not. Downtown is small compared to other US cities.

    Chicago…now your talking.

    True Crime: New York should make ammends.

    true crime NY is unlikely to be successful considering the flak it took the first time around. as its obviously a cheap\inferior attempt at GTA. Lacks the humour, the memorable characters, the inventiveness and the down right size of the game. also the cars handle terrible in it.
    GTA were right to slag them off in game, as omen mentioned in a previous thread if i want game “X” ill buy game “X” not a clone. X in his case being halo ;)

    Its notoriously hard to get sales figures but…

    “True Crime: Streets of L.A. It apparently worked, as the game sold to the tune of 5 million copies, despite its mediocre critical reception.”

    I think the sequel will do just as well or better.
