True Crime: Streets of L.A. (2003) and New York City (2005)

Set in a Hong Kong-like locale, the trailer for the open-world action game detailed street-brawling, motorcycle and car-jacking hijinks, along with plenty of neon lights.

The first two entries in the series--L.A. and New York--were handled by Luxoflux, with no word on when the Activision-published sequel will hit or what platforms it'll be on.
