Great Shooting Game: Not Max Payne Bop Off

Kitajima121, Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: Dead to Rights is about a cop named Jack Slate that is in somewhat similiar situation as Max Payne (except he has a dog). The gameplay is different from Max Payne and the game overall has alot of pluses and minuses. PLUS: The disarms are great, it can always get you out of a tough situation, also the dog attack is an automatic killer you also get their weapon. The bullet time is done nicely (nothing to add more than its bullet time).

Dead and Buried

  • Summary: Every game should be like a good book - grabbing you right from the start and holding onto you until the end, making it almost impossible to put down. Dead to Rights, however, is an exception to this rule, and in all honesty, has to be the worst game I have ever had the misfortune to play.

My god, could they have made this game ANY harder?

  • Summary: well, i had heard stuff about this game from a few friends of mine before i got it. It went along all the same lines: "Holy hell, this game is hard, mike". Yet I payed no attention. a good challenge can keep you going for a while and makes the experience more addictive, which is what we're all looking for, right? Well, i played thru the first level and a half with little to no difficulty and just assumed that my friends were horrible at this game.

Good DIFFICULT game with some flaws

Tex "dionysus_olympus", Amazon

  • Summary: I've been playing the game once the game's price went down. I've heard fairly good things about it, and it is fairly good, with a few exceptions. The graphics and sounds are spectacular compared to Max Payne, its friendly rival. The disarm cut-scenes are also incredibly good to watch. The storyline does not resemble Max Payne in its darkness quality, but rather it is story of justice in the vein of Die Hard movies, with some goofy humor involved. Now to the bad parts...

Dead To Shi..

9 April 2003
  • Excerpt: "...for the mourning of his dead dad) and bad language. Thus, it will only appeal to adolescent boys in their early to mid teens. Six or seven years ago, this game could’ve been successful. Basically, Dead to Rights is a shallow, tedious action game. The basic formula is to shoot that hoard of bad guys, run around a bit, collect a key, complete obscure mini-game, cut scene, and repeat until symptoms have disappeared. The plot is the glue – horrible, ...

Hong Kong action in your hands

"adrian1_1", amazon.co.uk
2 March 2003
  • 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.

Brilliant game!

"fozzmeister", amazon.co.uk
25 February 2003
  • 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...

Frustration Guaranteed!!

"sonakira", Amazon
19 January 2003
  • Summary: Graphics: 8/10 Sound: 7/10 Gameplay: 8/10 Overall: 7.5/10 I'd like to start off by saying that the "Failed" screen of the game (equivalent to Game Over) simply isn't pretty enough for the amount of times you're going to see it. If you can overlook the several flaws it presents you'll be rewarded with the best action\shooting game since perhaps Max Payne.

Wasted Potential

J. Robinson, Amazon
14 January 2003
  • Summary: If you're looking for immersive gameplay, good story and graphics...then don't buy this game. At first I thought this would be a Max Payne knock-off, which would be fine because that was a great game. Unfortunately this game can't even be put into the same category. First off, the graphics are just ok. There's nothing wrong with them, but I'm playing on an X Box here. The graphics should be great.
