First I would like to state that this game deserves much more than a 4.6. I mean it's no 10 perfect game but it is a good rental or even buy if you were a hardcore fan of streets of LA. TC New York City has some pretty decent gameplay, a great part of this is the random crimes that pop up now and then around the city, they are super swesome at first but start to get repetitive after the first week or two. But the shooting and just cruising around is fun to as you can enter almost every building in the game during the day but not at night as this game seems to be realistic with all of New York city. The gameplay is above average in my oppinion. I can't say that the graphics are the best but they are a bit better than GTA SA (which is a better game) in GTA the hands were always blocks in this they actually have detailed fingerwork but alot of jerky animations outside of cutscenes so the graphics are good in my opppinion. The sound is great possibly because of the music that is so well performed on the radio. They have White Zombie, The Ramones, Tupac, even Jay (Gay) Z. Tge sound is deffinetly above average. The value is mid as this can turn out to be valuable to some and unvaluable to some, I think it's valuable to rent but that's my oppininon. What the heck does reviewers tilt mean!
