Just Plain Old Dead.......a poor effort from Namco
10 July 2004
Summary: Dead To Rights seemed like an exciting title in the weeks ensuing its initial release - but after (thankfully) renting this title I found it to be a pleasant experience on the eyes, but nothing else. The graphics are sharp and detailed, but the gameplay and camera angles leave a lot to be desired.
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.
Summary: This game has many things going for it, but I am not going to itemize those things. The reason I rated this game 2 stars (and subsequently cancelled my pre-order) - was solely because of the RIGHT THUMBSTICK.
Summary: Like you, I read most of the reviews from customers and thought I'd form my own opinion and rent it. This game is NOT user friendly. Since when in God's green Earth is it allowed that when you move a joystick left, you look right? Or that you're immediately disarmed when you advance to a new level?
Summary: "Dead to rights" is what could have been as good maybe better then Max payne. There are some things that are better then in MAx Payne. Like being able to take hostages and being able to peak around corners and shoot And of course your side kick dog. The graphics are good not as bad as some say.
Summary: I was lucky enough to rent this game... I started playing DTR after a few hours of playing "Enclave" (my other rental). "Enclave" puts DTR's graphics to shame. DTR's graphics remind me of a bad PS2 port. The controls for DTR are also very confusing.
Summary: This game could have been good. The fighting, weapon, and maneuvering mechanics of this game are nice. What kills this linear game is that it becomes redundant very quickly plus the bad camera scheme. Keeping a good camera angle has to be constantly adjusted by the left thumb stick.
Summary: Today is the 4th day I've had this game on rental from Blockbuster, and no doubt about it, it's way too frustrating to be fun. The graphics is good, the storyline stupid but tolerable, and lurking somewhere you can sense a fun factor, but the difficulty and insanely unpredictable controls make this...
Summary: Da story to this nearly copies Max Payne. A cop framed for murder seeking revenge, bla bla. Lemme git 2 da point: This game [is bad]. It copies a great games Storyline, and he can carry 2 pistols like Max Payne. It's gameplay is like Syphon Filter, cept wit a discussingly huge controller.
