Aspyr Media Inc. announced Tuesday that it’s shipping its Macintosh conversion of
True Crime: Streets of L.A.. The game is expected to hit store shelves by March 19, 2005.
True Crime: Streets of L.A. puts you in the shoes of Nick Kang, an ex-cop heading an undercover task force to stop Chinese and Russian gangs from taking over the streets of Los Angeles. To that end, bad-boy Nick amasses an impressive arsenal of weapons, using his martial arts moves to take on the bad guys and whatever other force — lethal or not — necessary to keep the criminals at bay. A branching storyline changes what happens depending on what you do. You can also go into “Dogg Patrol” mode to unlock hip hop star Snoop Dogg to help you fight. Internet and LAN play is also supported, although it’s restricted to play against other Macs.
True Crime: Streets of L.A. is rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB and costs US$49.99. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, G4/1GHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 3GB free hard disk space, ATI Radeon 8500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better 3D graphics with at least 32MB VRAM and a DVD drive.
