Imagine yourself cruising through the sun-dripped, star-laden streets of Los Angeles.
You are the toughest crime warrior this side of Sunset. You take down your enemies with a dizzying array of punches, kicks, combinations and finishing moves, all without breaking a sweat.
Welcome to the world of Elite Operations Division operative Nick Kang, a no-holds-barred bad-ass whose brutal reputation has landed him the task of taking down the organized crime units that have turned Los Angeles into a war zone. You become immersed in the gritty underworld of a realistic Los Angeles, taking part in explosive gun battles, devastating martial arts brawls and high-speed shootouts.
Then, you discover a hidden code that unlocks the power of the one and only - Snoop Dogg, himself. With his power, you take over the streets in search of criminals trying to take over the city.
These adventures await the savvy-minded game connoisseur in Activision's "True Crime: Streets of L.A.," the PC version of the best-selling console game.
The game's soundtrack - with rock anthems as well as hip-hop tracks from the award-winning console soundtrack - propels players through the mean streets of L.A., where it's nonstop action as players battle through unpredictable shifts in the storyline that change based on the success or failure of the characters.
