True Crime: Streets of L.A. Review

By Shawn Oaks |

The biggest hurdle facing the Luxoflux developed True Crime: Streets of LA is it's proximity in both premise and expectations to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto franchise. PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube owners are supposed to want it because at a glance it looks so much like the videogame phenom that has dominated the charts for two years, yet gamers are supposed to approach it with an open mind and take it for what it is. True Crime is an action game that allows you to drive around several hundred square miles of Los Angeles streets and seamless exit the car and interact with those same square miles of people, cars and criminals.

The greatest strength of this Luxoflux game, however, is the integration of story and layers of game design into one cohesive package that's makes the whole thing flow more like an interactive movie than anything. If the GTA games gave us a living city that reacted to almost all of our whims and left us on our own to generate fun for ourselves, True Crime gives us very specific things to do in that living city so that we might drive a genuine story. True Crime gives you a purpose and a consequence for every criminal you bag and every civilian or cop you blast, and the events of one mission are tied to the next mission all the way to the multiple ends of the game. However, some technical hurdles holding it back from being a completely successful PC port.

In the role of detective Nick Kang--the stereotypical hot-shot cop with an attitude problem that we've seen in dozens of Hollywood blockbusters and B-movies--you have the freedom to travel anywhere in the game's depiction of Los Angeles, and you can seamlessly go from driving to operating on foot with the press of a button. When you're on foot, Nick Kang can fight, shoot, flash his badge, fire in the air and roust suspects. Your driving skills from racing games will serve you well, but Nick can also auto-target or use precision aiming to shoot people or vehicles while driving. Using 24/7 training centers to improve his driving, shooting and fighting abilities, you can add even more functionality and offensive moves to Kang's arsenal but it's all done with a purpose.

You can tap the left mouse button to shoot "from the hip," or hold down the button for a focused aim that will slow time to a crawl, allowing you to target things like car tires, or a thug who's using someone as a body shield. Steering with the mouse feels a little sluggish, but you can combine it with keyboard turning, using the WASD keys , for higher responsiveness. The cars tend to hug the road a lot more than in most racing games, and the emergency brake is, for some reason, ridiculously touchy. Anything more can a quick tap of the right mouse button can ruin a tight turn, or stop you on a dime. The driving keyboard controls are pretty well mapped by default.

The initial levels of the game are simple enough and will fool many, especially GTA veterans, into thinking they're getting a cheap and easy gameplay experience. But as you progress, the game is going to demand specific skills of you like the ability to shoot specific parts of an enemy's body or the ability to disable an escaping suspect's car with ease. These are skills that have to be earned by completing challenges at 24/7 training facilities scattered around the city. This integration is how you end up mastering every skill available in the game and experiencing all True Crime has to offer. It's linear in that some events and challenges have to happen before the other, but the beauty is you're still getting the freedom to choose what you'll do and when you'll do it.

You'll notice you'll barely be passing most missions if you don't take the time to upgrade your skills. We're talking about beating minibosses with a sliver of health left and racing to locations with only 2 seconds to spare. You get the feeling that you should be better than that and the truth is you should. You just have to find how and where you want to invest in your skills. This is yet another subtle way that True Crime pushes you. And before you know it, you're hours deep into a game that you thought you'd knock out in an afternoon.

****************************** 1.0    INTRODUCTION ****************************
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

     My very first game walkthrough, and I chose this game for it to be my very 
first game walkthrough. Why? Probably because of the way this game intrigues me
and seems pretty simple enough to do as a first FAQ/Walkthrough. Anyways, I'll
try to add strategies that help you out since I was able to finish this game
within a couple of days from obtaining the game. Though this game was short for
me, doesn't mean it can't be long and doesn't mean its BORING.

     If you're thinking about buying this game or something, here is a quick
Non Spoiler Summary about this game. (Summary from the Back of the Case)

     "Hell has been unleased on the City of Angels by merciless gangs. The only
hope to restore order is an out of control ex-cop whose unconventional methods
leave him rejected by the police and feared by criminals. Drive, fight and
shoot your way through 240 square miles of L.A. and a branching storyline where
you never have to repeat the same mission twice."

     Anyways, its fun, and I'll stop talking so much bullcrap about what I
think. Lets get on with it.



===============================================================================
**************************** 2.0    CHARACTERS ********************************
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

Here are the main characters in the game.

(FROM GAME MANUAL)

"Who's Who in the E.O.D.(Elite Operations Division)

NICK KANG:

     Although he was recently suspended indefinitely from the police force due
to repeated incidents of excessive violence and property dmage, Nicholas Kang
(Wilson) was recruited into the E.O.D. as the group's first field agent. The
same over-the-line methods that got him thrown off the force enable him to
succeed at the E.O.D.; his arrest record speaks for itself. Kang's skills in
martial arts are only matched by his ability to double-frst-firearms and drive
like a Hollywood stuntman.

THE CHIEF:

     Chief of Detectives, Wanda Parks, is head of the E.O.D. She has two 
decades of law enforcement experience and is one of the most well respected
officers on the police force. Parks puts up with Nick's brash and over-the-top
nature because she knows that when all hell breaks loose, Nick is the only man
who consistently delivers.

ROSIE:

     An ex-gangbanger turned straight, Rosie Velasquez is one tough cop. Having
experienced life on both sides of the law, Rosie knows how to take care of
herself. She's just been partnered with Nick Kang, and isn't too happy about
hitting the streets with a loose cannon. Rosie is afraid she'll get caught up 
in the crossfire that constantly surrounds L.A.'s most dangerous detective- and
rightly so.

===============================================================================
***************************** 2.2    GAME SCREEN ******************************
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

     In this section, will label all the info about whats on your game screen
and where its at while you're on the streets of L.A.

-------------------
CAR ICON-
-------------------

The car icon is on the upper left corner of the screen. You can tell
since it looks like a car. The red on the car will show the amount of damage on
that part of the car. When the Icon is flashing red, you either drive real
carefully, ditch the car, or let it blow you up.

--------------------
ENEMY CAR ICON-
--------------------

This is located on the upper right corner of your screen. It works the same way
as your car meter. Make the car is targeted so it appears on your screen.

-----------------------------
REWARD POINTS AND BADGES-
-----------------------------

This is located on the bottom right corner of your screen. depending on your
actions, will affect your reward points and badges. For every 100 reward points
you get, you get a badge. The badges are used at 24/7 facilities to upgrade 
your skills. If you're good and put the criminals in their place, you get
reward points. If you're careless and harm civilians, say bye bye to the badges
and reward points. The reward points are also needed to use Pharmacies or Gas
Stations.

---------------------
GOOD/BAD METER-
---------------------

This is located on the bottom right corner of the screen next to the Reward
points and badges. Depending on your actions again, will determine if your 
a good cop or bad cop. If your a good cop, you'll have to put the criminals
back to their rightful place for being really stupid. If your a bad cop, go
crazy and kill civilians and be as reckless as possible. Check the 
Good Cop/Bad Cop section for more info.

-----------------
TAIL METER-
-----------------

This appears on the right side of the screen under the enemy car icon. This
appears only on certain missions. This meter is split into three sections:

Bottom Section- You're too far, catch up to your target
Middle Section- You're just at the right distance
Top Section(Red)- Slow down or they'll notice your there

If you're to close for to long, the suspect will get away and you'll eventually
lose. If you're to far away from the suspect for to long, you'll lose them and
and lose the mission.

------------------
SPOOK METER-
------------------

This is located on the top right corner. This meter only appears with Tailing
missions or Stealth missions. In tailing missions, if you're to close, you'll
have a certain amount of time until the meter fills up and they discover you.

In Stealth missions, you'll have a certain amount of time to take cover if 
you're in plain site of your enemy before they discover you. They're question
Marks if you were wondering what the hell they look liked.

-----------------------
NICK'S HEALTH BAR-
-----------------------

This appears on the top left corner. Its in ( shape, so its not hard to miss.
A full white bar, indicates 100% health. When it increases in a red bar,
you're getting injured and hurt. Once its fully red, your fully dead(or K'Oed).

----------------------
ENEMY HEALTH BAR-
----------------------

When you're engaged in a fight with an enemy or targeted onto them, the bar
will appear on the top right corner. It works the same way as your health bar,
but its good when theirs fills up to red. When you're surrounded by multiple
enemies, they'll line up going down from the top right.

-----------------------
CIVIL UNREST METER-
-----------------------

This meter is found on the bottom right corner between the badge and the good/
bad cop meter. This only happens when your choices, are bad choices. When you
get bad cop, you'll end up getting this message flashed in front of you. When
you continue being a bad cop, the more that civilians will turn on you. Then
you'll be hit up with drive bys. When the meter is filled, watch out for the
Cops and Swat Teams.

-------------
TIMER-
-------------

This is located right in the middle on the bottom of the screen. This only
appears in certain missions also. You'll have to race against the coutdown and
get to your destined location before time runs out. 

-----------------------
STREET INDICATOR-
-----------------------

On the top of the screen. Tells you what street your on.

---------------
MINI MAP-
---------------

Its on the bottom right of the screen. There are certain symbols on this map
that you'll see while you're roaming the streets.

1. Green Arrow/Dot- Your next mission destination in the story line
2. Tiny Red Square- The location of the a crime in progress
3. Large Red Dot-   The location of an enemy car that you're chasing or tailing
4. Yellow Gas Pump- These lead to repair stations where you can fix your car up
5. Yellow Cross-    These lead to the Pharmacies where you can heal yourself
6. Yellow Parking Lot- Drive/Run into these to heal yourself for free and get
                       a car that you have unlocked.
7. Blue Target Icon-   Practice your gunplay to gain upgrades. They're open
                       24/7
8. Blue Barbell Icon-  Practice on your martial arts to gain new karate moves.
                       They're open 24/7
9.Blue Car Icon-       Practice your driving skills to gain new driving
                       upgrades. They're open 24/7


That should be it for the game screen.



===============================================================================
*************************** 2.3    BASIC MOVES *******************************
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

      In this section, I will point out some of the basic moves that will keep
you alive during your quest to bust the criminals that get in your way.


                             =======================
                               HAND TO HAND COMBAT
                             =======================

When you decide to take out your enemy in hand to hand battle, you'll need to
use a series of punches and kicks to help you survive. Use certain punch and
kick combos to keep your opponent guessing your actions. While punching, make
sure that you're ready to block by pressing the opposite direction of your
enemy.

If you notice on your opponent's bar, on the left of them, you'll see at least
3 to 6 exclamation points. The more you hit them with regular attacks, the
lower they decrease. Once take away all the exclamation points, they'll be
stunned, giving you a chance to enter a series of commands to pull off a
finishing combo to do heavy damage. Make sure you enter them quickly or they'll
turn into a normal weak attack. Be sure to memorize the commands during
battle. Here are some of the beginning combos you get.


                           Y,A Buttons=   "Jumping Monkey"
                           A,B Buttons=   "Monkey Paw" Punch
                           B,Y Buttons=   "Monkey Kick"

Also note, that the exclamation points DO recover after a while if you don't
do any damage to your opponent. To gain more combos, particpate and complete
the 24/7 Martial arts gyms.

During fights, you also grapple opponents, and opponents can grapple you. When
you grapple an opponent, press X button to grapple and/or another attack
button(s) at the same time to activate various grapple moves. If an opponent
grapples you, press X button(sometimes you'll have to chain with others) to
release yourself from the grapple. Its best to grapple when your opponent is
stunned so that they don't reverse the grapples on you.

You can also do running attacks also, but you'll have to keep a distance from
your opponent so you're not locked on to him. Just run and press one of the
punch or kick buttons to complete them. In order to do these when you're in
"Fighting Mode"(pressing "Left" on the Ctrl Pad, or certain missions), you'll
have to earn these attacks in 24/7 Martial arts gyms.

Also, pay attention to your opponent's stances. Though I don't find this tip
really helpful on regular thugs, it does serve useful for the major one on one
fights. When there stance is high, do low kicks and punches. When there stance
is low, do high kicks and some punches. You can tell by their stance, if their
hands/arms are pointing high up, its a high stance. When they're bent down or
lowered in some way, their in a low stance. Though this doesn't ALWAYS succeed,
its still useful against major boss fights(one of a kind criminals that you
don't see out on the streets).


                             =======================
                                    SHOOTOUTS
                             =======================

On the streets, you're recommended to bring in suspects without resorting to
deadly force. But of course, if they're not willing to cooperate, you always
have 2 little "friends" by your side. When needed, pull out your guns, take
cover and fire back. When you're fighting multiple targets, you can use the
C stick to take advantage against multiple targets to take them out quicker
in fire fights. Its best to use the C stick and plan who you'll take out when
you're taking cover.

In fire fights, make sure you take cover behind an object or wall to reduce
getting hit. Hold B button to duck down or flatten yourself against a wall.
When they're busy reloading, quickly press R button and fire back. Be sure you
pay attention to your ammo that is by your health on the top left of the 
screen. Press Z if you need to reload. 

But of course, if you're in plain site view in a fire fight and need to get to
cover, use rolling to take advantage of not getting hit. Use the Y button and
press the direction your heading to roll to where you need to and take cover.
If you need to, you can do it Matrix style and hold Y button and direction
your heading to jump sideways while your shooting. You can also hold Y button
and do a dive while your shooting to avoid bullets while they get hit by
bullets.

There are times when you need to use precision targeting(sorta like a sniper
target mode) to take out your opponent quick and fast. Some of these times
would be: Hostage situations, Hitting small targets, Neuteralizing enemies,
Quick kills, accurate shootings, disabling cars, and anything else that is
hard to hit. You will be using Precision targeting a lot on car chases where
you have to disable a car. Best advice for disabling a car, take out the
wheels to slow it down. When using Precision targeting to neuteralize
enemies, hit the leg or the arms to nuetralize them. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: When using Precision targeting, when aim at a certain part of the target,
a certain color changes in the scope. When it turns green, it means that you
can neutralize them. When it turns red, it means its a fatal shot. When its
yellow, it means its just a normal hit. Only neutralizing and fatal shots can
take out a enemy in one bullet. Only difference is, that it usually determines
on your Good Cop/Bad Cop rating. Neutralizing= Good, Fatal= Bad. From what I
know, you can't neutralize enemies until you get a certain upgrade where you're
able to neutralize.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

During car chases while your hunting down your target, make sure your on the
side of them and shoot when necessary to avoid hitting civilians also. Be sure
to disable the tires to slow down the car til they decide to give up and ditch
there car.


                             =======================
                                     STEALTH
                             =======================

In certain missions, you get to be stealthy. Of course, the only movement
available, is just creeping(no running), and rolling. You'll need to check
many corners of areas by sticking to the wall and moving the camera to see your
enemies movements. When its clear, get out and follow them to do one of the 2
actions: Stun them= Good Cop, Deadly Attack= Bad Cop.

Just note, that some places, you might not be able to get away in time or not
able to approach your enemy. In whatever case that is, you can always press R
to tranquilize them to knock them out.

Also, pay VERY close attention to the ground also. Sometimes, there are objects
that you can "accidently" run into and trigger an enemy. When this happens,
your choice is to most likely to tranq. them. If you can, dive off for cover.

Remember that if a guard spots you, you have a limited amount of time(pay
attention to the Spook meter) to knock him out before the alarm is raised and
you're caught.



===============================================================================
*************************** 2.4    GOOD COP/BAD COP ***************************
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

     In this section, I'll point out how to get a good cop and bad cop status.


                        ****************************************
                                        GOOD COP
                        ****************************************
                                   Arrest criminals
                                  Solve Street Crimes
                                   Neutralize Enemies
                         Frisk civilians and find Drugs/Weapons
                                   Defeat Criminals
                          Use Stun Attacks in Stealth Missions


                        ****************************************
                                         BAD COP
                        ****************************************
                                     Kill civilians
                       Kill criminals(unless they use deadly force)
                           Defeating civilians in street fights
                          Use Deadly Attacks in Stealth Missions
                     Destroy and Blow up vehicles with someone inside


     Remember that you're actions inflicts what happens to you. If you're a
good cop, you'll pretty much have an easier time with this game. If you're a
bad cop, expect to be facing lots of trouble(like Swat Teams and Gang Drive
bys). Sometimes civilians will try to take the law in their own hands and try
to stop you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GOOD/BAD COP NOTE: In some story missions, you'll be required to chase down a
criminal that has fled from you, or an escape mission. If this so happens,
blowing up their car won't affect your Cop Rating.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



===============================================================================
************************* 2.5    OPTIONAL STREET CRIMES ***********************
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

     Street crimes are optional and happen randomly each time in the game. When
participating in them, you'll have to chase down the criminal and arrest them.
Unlike frisking, you have to arrest them by holding Z button and pressing X by
them. Like real life, sometimes they flee off when you're about to cuff them.
What do you do next then..? Chase them and try again. While you're pursuing
them, make sure you press one of the attack buttons while running to trip them.

If they don't surrender after they've been tripped, fight them and defeat them.
Then cuff them afterwards. Other ways to get them to surrender are:

1. Blasting your gun in the air by holding Z button and pressing R
2. Flash your badge by holding Z and pressing A button
3. If you're in a car, turn on your siren
4. Automatically when they're caught

Though, these ways aren't always sure fire to get them to surrender, these are
the only ways to get them to. If they don't surrender, chase and/or fight them
and cuff them. If they shoot back at you, if you can, neutralize them or kill
them(since they already used Deadly force).

If they do surrender, just approach them and arrest them. If you get a person
to surrender, also check if they had a gun. If they did and you either fired in
the air or flashed your badge, make sure they dropped their gun. If they
didn't, prepare for a chase or a shootout since most likely, they will want to
test you to see if you'll fight back.

If you want, you can just wander around and press X to frisk random people.
If you're lucky, you can bust someone with either illegal weapons or illegal
drugs. Doing this will raise your Good Cop Rating and increase your badge
points by 5.


                          [+++++++++++++++++++++++]
                          [***TIP***TIP***TIP***  ]
                          [+++++++++++++++++++++++]

     Head down to Venice to get the highest rate of people carrying either
illegal drugs or weapons. If you head down to Rose/Dudley Ave and Ocean Front
Walk, about 98% of people you frisk, will have either an illegal weapon/drug.
Make sure you're on the block closest to the ocean to get this really high rate
or else it decreases down.


Here are all the street crimes I've witnessed and seen(I tried remembering
some word from word. Some might not be TOTALLY accurate, but they're describe

     Here are some basic descriptions you'll be seeing throughout this
Walkthrough. Reading this part my help you understand it better throughout
most of the missions.

In certain Driving Missions, I might say a term like:

----> Ex:

"Head straight on Broadway St until you get on Broadway and Temple St."

First off, take a look at the top screen at the street indicator. Head straight
down that certain street until you get to the intersection. At an intersection,
it will have the current street you're on in the green box, and the street that
you will be on, depending on the sect you take.

----> Ex:


                             |----------------|
---> Green Box               |  BROADWAY ST   |
                             |----------------|
                              |--------------|
---> White Box                |  Temple St   |
                              |--------------|

The green box is your current street and the white box is the upcoming turn at
an intersection. Be sure to keep this in mind so you can understand some of
the driving missions in the walkthrough.

===============================================================================


FINAL NOTE: I completed this game with and without upgrades of any sorts, so
this game IS possible to beat without any upgrades, so don't worry if you're
wondering if you have a certain upgrade to help you out. Also, for the best
experience of this game, its best to go through this game without any upgrades
so you don't go through this game so fast. If you do want to get upgrades, then
the best time to get them, is if they're on your way to the destination point
according to my walkthrough, or Bonus Cruisin' Missions.

Heres the walkthrough.

===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                          MISSION 1: SHOOTING PRACTICE
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Destroy 10 Targets

     Not to hard for a first mission. Just press R and wait for the targets to
appear. When the target is locked on to the paper targets to appear. Hit R and
fire the bullets and destroy them. Use Z button to do a Manual reload for
quicker and easier work. Use control stick if you want to scroll through
targets while pressing R. There are 16 targets, so don't fret if you missed 1
or 2.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                          MISSION 2: RUSHING TO E.O.D
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Race to Chief's Office

     Check your City Map when you start this level(Pause Menu and City Map). 
The Green Dot, should be behind your current position. Not to far away. Run to
your car that is on the curb in front of you. You have 1:28 second to get to
the destination before you fail. Quickly, turn around and drive straight until
you get to Olive Street and 6th. Make a left turn and drive down on 6th street
until you get to 6th and Broadway street. Make a right turn and the target is
right there in front of you. You should get there with plenty time to spare.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                           MISSION 3: DRIVING FOR CHOW
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Drive to Restraunt(Solve Street Crimes: Optional)

     This is a free style mission, meaning that you have all the time in the
world to do whatever you please. If you want, you can take the time to solve
street crimes, get upgrades, frisk and bust some random civilians, whatever.

If you do decide to take on the mission right away, check the city map and
the destination is right behind you. Turn around and get back on the main
road. You should be on Broadway St. Drive straight until you get on Broadway
St. and 3rd street. Make a left turn and Drive straight. You should be on 3rd
St. Keep driving straight until your Mini Map shows a Big Green Dot. Make a
left turn and you shouldn't miss it. Get out the car and walk to the green
pointer(the door).



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                             MISSION 4: TRIAD MUSCLE
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Fight Triad Thug

     This guy isn't to difficult. Just use low kicks and punches to hit him
since it seems to connect the most. Keep hitting until he is stunned and do a
finishing combo move(check basic moves for the beginning combos). Repeat and 
rinse and he should go down.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                        MISSION 5: FINALE: ROSIE TROUBLE
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Shoot Triad Thug

     For the first shooting mission in this game, there are alternate ways you
can do this. First off, you can pursue the Triad Thug and shoot him while he
shoots you back until one of you die. You can also get in a car and run him
over and shoot him.

     The safest way I would recommend(and know), is run/roll in front of a car.
Hold B to duck and take cover while he shoots. When he stops shooting, get up
and shoot back. Don't get too near the car since there is chance the car can
suffice enough damage to blow up. Since he is near it, he'll pay the price for
being near it. If the car blows up before he dies, you can always roll to the
next one thats right beside you and repeat.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     After this mission, you'll be given a Bonus mission called Bonus Cruising.
Its just like a free style mission except you have to drive to one of the 3
green upgrade icons to get a free: Signature fighting move, Free gun upgrade,
and a Free Car. Once you choose one, you get a chance to win one. For
strategies to getting these, check the "Bonus Cruising Strategies Section."

_______________________________________________________________________________

                         MISSION 1: CRUISING FOR LEADS
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Drive to Destination(Solve Street Crimes: Optional)

     Another free style mission. You have the same options again. Either get
upgrades, bust some criminals, solve street crimes, etc. But since this a
walkthrough, I'll get straight to the point. If you have a messed up car in
front of you from your last driving mission, go to the Parking Lot, which is
right behind you to get yourself another car.

     If you want, check the City Map. Your destination should be on the right
of your current location. Get in your car and lets ride. When you get in the
car, you will switched to the opposite direction(facing south instead of north
like you just were). Head to the next lane and point yourself north to be on
Broadway St. Drive straight until you're on Broadway St. and 4th st. Make a
right turn and you'll be on 4th street.

     Keep driving straight until you see the Green arrow turn into the Big
Green Dot. Go to the Dot, exit the car, and head to the front door.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                           MISSION 2: DOJO ATTACKER
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Fight Attacker

      In the risk of spoiling the story, I'll get to the point of this fight.
When the battle begins, you might want watch his attacks for a while and attack
when he attacks you back. I personally love using the low kick(B Button) since
its at the tip of my fingers and it works pretty well against him. Keep doing
combo punches and kicks til he is stunned. Do a finishing combo and repeat
again. The battle area is very wide, so make sure you don't trap yourself
against the wall thinking that there is no place to run and get fighting space.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                           MISSION 3: RED LATERN RUSH
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Race to Bar

     Another timed mission. Make sure your car is fit and doesn't have popped
tires. If they do, just quit and reload to a free style mission and get a
fresh car. Then save and return back to this mission.

     When the mission begins, You'll have 59 seconds to clear this mission, but
if you've seen your City Map, its not to far. Drive straight down San Pedro St.
til you see a fork splitting left and right. Head to the left fork and continue
heading straight down the path til 1st St. and Los Angeles St. Take a right
turn and straight down that path until you see the next turn heading left. Take
that street and you'll be on Temple street. Head straight down to that street
until you see the Big Green Dot appear on the Mini Map. Turn right and drive
on the Dot with plenty of time to spare.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                              MISSION 4: BAR BRAWL
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Fight Feng

     This battle is a little different from your other ones since he's going
to be carrying a knife. I find that these battles are a bit harder since they
come down on you very quick and fast. The best tatic I could come up with is
to block his first few attacks and come after him with some punching and high
kick attacks since those usually hit him more than my beloved low kick attack.
When he is stunned, use a finishing combo. Repeat til he is defeated.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                            MISSION 4:(Alt) THE ARSONIST
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Chase Feng

     The first alternate mission. You can do this for fun if you want, but not
really required. Also note, that when you're done with the previous mission,
this mission will be skipped, so you'll have to go back to the title screen to
select this mission.

     If you decide to do this mission, you'll probably love since its a high
speed chase. Basically, all you have to do is chase him down and shoot his car.
Use the Precision Aim and shoot at least 2 of his tires to slow down the car.
If you want, you can get out of the car and pop out the rest until he
surrenders. If you suck at Precision aiming, you can try to pop his tires out
by driving on the side of him and shoot the side of the car aiming for the
tires.

     If you want, you can still stay in your car and shoot his car until he
gives up due to a damaged car, or blow up his car. Either way, you'll win.
Just make sure you avoid as much damage to your car as possible if you want
to be able to catch up to him.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                          MISSION 5: CHASING TRIAD THUG
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Chase Feng

     This is a real short mission. Just chase him down and shoot him, or jack a
nearby ride and run him over. If you want to have fun, do a drive by on him and
make it look like a gang related murder. ^_^



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                          MISSION 6: DRIVE TO JIMMY'S
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Drive to Warehouse(Solve Street Crimes: Optional)

     Another free style mission, do what you want, but heres what to do from
the starting location. Check your City Map if you want to. If you did, the dot
is on the Northeast position.

     When you begin, you'll be on Figueroa St. Head straight down the Figueroa
St. until you're on Figueroa St. and 1st St. Take a right turn at the intersect
and you'll be on 1st St. Head straight down 1st. St. til you get on 1st St. and
Los Angeles St. From then on, you only need to continue on the path until you
see the Big Green Dot. Head there to your next destination.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                           MISSION 7: SNEAKING IN
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Sneak into Warehouse

     The first stealth mission in the game. Not quite hard if you know what
you're doing. When you first begin, walk straight in front and press B to press
against the wall. When you side step, you should see a guard. He never turns
around, so thats good. Now, you have 2 choices of attacks. Stun Attack(Good
Cop), or Deadly Attack(Bad Cop). You also have a Tranquilizer for quick and
sticky situations, but thats neutral and you only have 3 Tranqs.

     Head to the first guard and take care of him. Next, head for the pillar
that is right by the statues. Press against it and fix your camera until you
can see straight ahead. Wait for the guard to come into your view. Once he
turns around and patrols back, head for him and take care of him. After that,
you'll see another guard in front of you, having a smoke. Hide behind the
pillar next to you and fix your camera into his sight. Wait for him to turn
to face you and turn to face back. Once he faces back, approach him and take
care of him. If you need to, you can always roll to the side while approaching
him so that he doesn't see you.

     After him, you'll see another pillar in front of you. Press against it
and fix your camera to point straight. You'll see a guard patrolling by, that
goes back and forth. Once he turns around, approach and take good care of him.
Now that you're almost there, be patient and cautious. Head up the ramp and
continue straight for the exit point. While you're heading there, you'll see a
shadow appearing. Another guard will come out, so keep approaching until you
see him. Take care of him quickly or use a Quick Tranq. Afterwards, stand on
the exit line to finish.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                           MISSION 8: JIMMY'S AMBUSH
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Shoot Jimmy's Crew

     When the level begins, quickly head to the nearest pillar and press
against it for cover while Jimmy's crew starts shooting at you. Looks like
you'll be expecting a fire fight. Take out the first 2 guards that will be in
plain sight after they reload. Walk forward a bit til you see a guard up on the
left balcony. Roll towards the boxes and hold B to duck down. If you're real
close to the box, that guard can't hit you. When he reloads, retaliate with gun
fire. Head forward a bit and a guard will come running out. Quickly dispatch
him since you have no time to take cover. Walk forward a bit and a guard will
appear on the top right balcony. Take cover behind the big drawer and boxes
that are on the right side or the Pillar near by. When he reloads, fire back.

     Walk straight a bit and another guard will come running out. Quickly take
care of him since there is no time to take cover. Head straight for the pillar
with the First Aid Kit Box. If you're really hurt, I suggest using it(press X).
At the same time, a guard will appear on the right side. Either duck down or 
press against the pillar. When he reloads, kill him. Afterwards, 3 more guards
will appear on the left side. Duck down behind the boxes and by the pillar or
press against the pillar. Use C Stick to target the one in plain sight of you
and shoot him when he reloads. Also note of the other guards, so don't waste
to much time on him. If you want to, you can side step between the pillar and
the drawer so you can go back and forth hitting them. Afterwards, guards will
start coming in from the Balcony. Repeat going back and forth from the pillar
to the drawer for cover while firing. Make sure they're reloading before you
move if you want to avoid as much damage as possible.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                        MISSION 9: FINALE: SNIPER ASSASSIN
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Shoot Sniper

     Short and easy mission. When the mission begins, run in between the 
windows, taking cover. The sniper isn't really that far away, so you can easily
see him. When he shoots, quickly come out and fire a few rounds while he is
running around. When he stops, take cover and wait for him to fire. After he
shoots, hit him with more bullets. Repeat this til he dies.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     After this mission, you'll be given a Bonus mission called Bonus Cruising.
Its just like a free style mission except you have to drive to one of the 3
green upgrade icons to get a free: Signature fighting move, Free gun upgrade,
and a Free Car. Once you choose one, you get a chance to win one. For
strategies to getting these, check the "Bonus Cruising Strategies Section."

                             MISSION 1: OFF TO CHONG'S
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Drive to Chong's Residence(Solve Street Crimes: Optional)

     Another free style mission, giving you a chance for upgrades. If you want
to get them, get them now. Otherwise, heres how to get to your next location
from where you start.

     When you check your City Map, you'll have quite a ways to go, but it
shouldn't take long. You'll begin on Melrose Ave. Head straight down the lane
til you get to Melrose Ave and La Cienega Blvd. Take a right turn to get on
La Cienega Blvd. Head straight down the path til you get to La Cienega Blvd
and Santa Monica Blvd. The intersect will point diagonally from northeast down
northwest. Head on left on the northwest intersect to get on Santa Monica Blvd.
Head straight down the path until you get to Santa Monica Blvd and Palm Ave.
Make a right turn and head straight down on Palm Ave until you get to Palm Ave
and Nellas St. Make a left turn and you'll be on Nellas St. There is a short
path running straight through here, so when you're on Nellas St. and Lerrabee
St., make a right turn to be on Larrabee St. At the same time, another short
path. This will also reveal the Big Green Dot. Make a left turn into Sunset
Blvd and head straight for the Dot.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                         MISSION 2: TAILING CHONG'S LIMO
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Tail Chong's Limo

     I'm not much on the path of where this guy goes, since I'm pretty sure its
not random on where he drives. But then again, not to sure. My only advice is,
make sure you keep up with him and pay attention to the tail meter. Make sure
it stays in the middle. If you get to close, you'll have about 5 seconds(check
Spook Meter) to get further. If you get to far, you'll have about 3 "Falling
Behind" messages before you fail. Try to avoid as much traffic as possible and
pay attention to your Mini Map also. The mission will end automatically once
limo reaches its destination, so be patient.

Make sure that you do NOT shoot the Limo or else he might try to escape you and
also notice your presence. In that case, you'll automatically fail since he
drives around in circles in paths.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                           MISSION 3: A STAKEOUT GONE BAD
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Escape Attackers

     In this mission, it will be YOU who is targetted by the criminals. To win
these missions, check your City Map for reference. When you leave their line of
sight(their Big Red Dot on the City Map), thats when you win the mission. Of
course, losing them might not be easy, especially if the car is using is slow.
At the beginning of the level, I suggest popping out at least 2 tires of the
car to escape him, or blow the car up. If you have a fast vehicle, then try to 
ditch him.

NOTE: Sometimes you might not be able to shoot the enemy in this mission unless
he is in front of your range. Beware of that also.



===============================================================================
_______________________________________________________________________________

                           MISSION 4: DRIVING TO SPA
_______________________________________________________________________________

===============================================================================

OBJECTIVE: Drive to Russian Spa(Solve Street Crimes: Optional)

     When you begin this level, you'll start out on Melrose Ave. Drive straight
on Melrose Ave until you're on Melrose Ave and Martel Ave. Take a left and go
into Martel Ave. Keep driving straight until you see the Big Green Dot. Take a
right and go into the Dot to your next location. 

Also note, an Optinal Street might appear, saying "Rocky's Goons are Back". If
this so happens, either ditch them again, or take them out.
