It was followed by a sequel, ''[[TrueCrimeNewYorkCity True Crime: New York City]],'' which was not nearly as well-received by critics or fans. A third, DolledUpInstallment formerly known as Black Lotus, later known as a ''True Crime'' game, titled ''True Crime: Hong Kong,'' was in production before being cancelled by Activision in 2012. It was then picked back up by Square-Enix and retitled ''VideoGame/SleepingDogs'', and was released in August 2012.

** Those are just the easiest ways to affect the karma meter. Reckless driving is Bad, lethal takedowns are bad, property damage is bad, stealing is bad, and in some cases, causing car accidents is bad (but if you find someone that wasn't wearing their seatbelt after a crash, it's a wash). Stopping random crimes is good, and frisking people without cause and finding something illegal is good (What Fourth amendment?).

* BittersweetEnding: The Bad and Neutral Endings. The Bad Ending has Nick defeating General Kim, however Kim plummets to his death and many pieces of the puzzle are still missing. The Neutral Ending has Nick subduing Rocky, however [[spoiler: Carey dies in this path]], and the secret of what happened to Nick's father dies with Rocky as Rosie shoots him to save Nick. George monologues on how nothing is perfect, and encourages the player to try again.



* GunsAkimbo: Nick's modus operandi when working with firearms.

Added DiffLines:

* MultipleEndings: There are about six endings in total. Two for each path you can take (Good Cop, Neutral Cop, and Bad Cop). If Nick dies in any of these paths on the final level, it's a DownerEnding. If you survive in the Bad and Neutral paths, it's only a BittersweetEnding. The GoldenEnding is completing the last mission for the Good path.


Added DiffLines:

* StarterVillain: The [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs local Triad]] serves as this before moving to the Russian Mafiya.

--> '''George''': They call it "The City of Angels". Funny. In my thirty years here, I haven't seen a single one.
