Excerpt: Dead to Rights is a third person action shooter game made by Namco originally for Xbox but has since been made for other systems and has had a sequel it was made in 2002. The game is very similar to max payne at times it feels like a console version of it although this is not a bad thing, it also has bullet time and shoot dodging like max payne which is always fun to use and helps make the game a bit easier especially when fighting several enemies at once.
Excerpt: This is a really tough game to play and one that I struggled to master but this did make it a really good challenge and certainly a game I would recommend. The storyline of the game sees you taking on the role of Jake Slate who along with his police dog companion Shadow battles against the criminals in crime ridden Grant City. Actually the story line is quite strong in this game and it does have a few surprises in it.

Excerpt: **This review is printed in the University Of Wollongong's 'Sirens' issue of Tertangala - my Uni magazine.

On the way Jack's set up for murder he didn't commit.
Summary: This game is like a hong kong action movie that you can control. You play Jack Slate, a k9 cop thats been framed for murder. You have to play through a story full of plot twists, double crosses and the biggest supply of bad guys you've ever seen. The highlights of dead to rights is the ability to use any bad guy as a human shield.
Summary: Namco have really pulled it off! This game has to be one of my favourite titles on the Xbox. It's like playing a game in an cop thriller movie. The biggest attraction to me was the moves that can be executed by your character: you can perform slow motion dives while targeting multiple enemies at once, sneak dissarm attacks and my personal favourite the human shield - basically sneak up on an enemy, grab him and use him to protect you from enemy fire while you point your...
Summary: un bon petit max payne like... on se fait plaisir, meme si ca devient parfois repetitif ou pas interessant voire chiant comme le passage en prison ou l'on se retrouve sans armes... Sinon l'action est bien présente, mais les graphismes sont trop pauvres pour une xbox.
