Inspired by Hong Kong action films, the game lets players assume the role of tough-as-nails detective Nick Kang, bent on settling a personal vendetta with the L.A. underworld. As Kang, players will be able to dispense their own personal brand of justice through automotive combat, a variety of rib cracking martial arts moves and the business end of dual 45s.

True Crime: Streets of L.A. features an all-star voice cast of top Hollywood talent including Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, Michael Madsen, Russell Wong, Michelle Rodriguez, Ron Perlman, CCH Pounder, James Hong, Mako and Keone Young. The game will be supported by a soundtrack that will debut more than 50 original music tracks performed by such renowned West Coast rap artists as Snoop Dogg, Westside Connection (Ice Cube, Mac 10 and WC), Warren G, KAM, Jayo Felony, Boo Yaa Tribe, Easy-E Jr., among others.

"With True Crime: Streets of L.A., Luxoflux has done a great job of merging three distinct game genres -- action, shooting and driving -- with an innovative branching storyline into one action-packed crime drama," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "Gamers will experience an L.A. where high-octane car chases, hand-to-hand combat and explosive shootouts are all in a day's work."

True Crime: Streets of L.A. thrusts players into the role of rogue Elite Operations Division operative Nick Kang, a no-holds-barred badass, whose brutal reputation and lethal skills have landed him the nasty task of taking down the Chinese Triad and Russian Mafia cartel that have turned Los Angeles into a war zone. Gamers take part in explosive gun battles with double fisted firepower, devastating martial arts brawls, and high-speed shootouts across 240 square miles of accurately recreated L.A. The game's unique branching missions include locating hostile witnesses, infiltrating criminal-infested locations, taking out evasive informants and busting the heavily armed and deadly bad guys.

True Crime: Streets of L.A. is being developed by Luxoflux for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube(TM). The game has been rated "M" ("Mature" - Blood and Gore, Mature Sexual Themes, Strong Language and Violence) by the ESRB.
