True Crime: Streets of LA
has begun shipping and is expected to be available on retail shelves by March 19. "You are Nick Kang, an ex-cop with a brutal reputation and lethal skills. Rejected by the police force and feared by criminals, you have been given a nearly impossible task - head an undercover task force to stop the Chinese and Russian gangs from turning the city of Los Angeles into hell on earth. Drive, fight and shoot your way through a massive array of unpredictable missions." Streets of L.A. has a branching storyline that allows users to determine your next move while maneuvering through 240 square miles of L.A. Players can also go into "Dogg Patrol" mode and unlock Snoop Dogg to fight against crime. It is available for $50 and requires a 1GHz G4/G5 processor and Mac OS X 10.2.8.
