Be a good cop or a bad cop in the streetwise action game True Crime: New York City. You can explore the authentically modeled streets of New York City as a police officer tracking down criminals and administering justice. The game features a diverse weapon set, as well as a mixed offering of fighting styles that you can use to take out those who stand in your way. In addition to combat on foot, the game features driving sequences and shootouts. Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Walken, and Mickey Rourke contribute their voice talent to the game as well.

Emulation Information


True Crime: New York City has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Force 16:9". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.



This game will crash on the tutorial mission. This occurs when coming into contact with objects or dropping from the ladder near the end of the tutorial. The game can also crash inside other buildings in the game when objects are hit with a melee. See issue 7230. The only way to work-around this is to adjust the Emulated CPU Clockrate currently. 70% - 80% seems perfectly stable in extended testing sessions.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

4.0-8183 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.8GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Tested across various revisions from 4.0 onward. Using an Emulated CPU Clockrate of 76% seems to make it perfectly stable. The game is notoriously buggy on console, and Dolphin also suffers from these. It's not a fault of the emulator. JMC47
