Summary: I chose the 5 star rating as my bro whom plays it greatly enjoys this game. Plus when i orderred this item I was shown that there is a version 2, which my bro did not think had been made. So i ordered both games.. to the great enjoyment from my bro when this came in.. as i had not told him about the version 2 also ordered. *grin*. To top off his joy.. I ordered this item at 2pm central time, chose 2nd day shipping as bro "really likes that game".
Summary: "Dead to Rights" is the kind of non-stop action game that will remind you why you play console games in the first place. Though the game's premise, style, and source of inspiration are easy to compare to "Max Payne," the games themselves are readily distinguishable from one another, and both are equally as worthy of your gaming attentions.
Summary: Don't know how I ever let myself sell this game, but I'm getting another copy asap! This game is the right mix of violence and fun. Choc-full of drama, action and analytical, brain-squeezing mini-games (not too easy...just challenging enough to lose a couple of times before you get the hang of it and pass it! Whew!) Actually found myself doing a touchdown dance after a few of the stages.
Summary: I've never really felt the minigames were a detriment to the game itself but I can see the point about them disrupting the flow of the action. I think in most cases though they really helped the story along and that's a big plus for this game. I really appreciate when games care about the story and this one really does with Chris Bruno (Sheriff Bannerman on USA's "The Dead Zone") doing a hell of a job narrating the story as Jack Slate.
Summary: I won't write a lengthy review, as many others on here have said enough. However, I would like to inject my own thoughts, as I enjoyed this game immensely. Sure, It may be a Max Payne spinoff, ripoff,or whatever you may label it, but it does have some unique qualities of it's own. I played Max payne one and two, and both games have some striking similarities.
Summary: This game is one of the best I ever played. This game tells the story about a bad ass K-9 police officer named Jack Slate avenging his father's death and kicking any/everyone's ass that gets in his way. The graphics are great, the weapons are great and this is a hit. The attitude, fun and aggressiveness of the game makes it one of a kind. I give this game 10/10.
Warning: Highly Addictive. Only for Serious Gamers.

Summary: When I first rented this game, I didn't expect much. NAMCO products don't exactly make me do a double take. I only gave it a chance because it's a shooter game. Boy was I surprised! I was totally addicted. I don't care for hand-to-hand combat, but, overall, the battle scheme was user friendly. Too bad you can only slow-mo while diving, and you're dog meat if you dive in a direction in which you can't see your enemy. I just love the disarm sequences.
