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, ...
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.
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? I had a difficult time relating this game to anything remotely realistic.
Just Plain Old Dead.......a poor effort from Namco

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. Not only that, the amount of ammunition it takes to put down a run-of-the-mill peon is near improbable.....two to three shots up close with a shotgun?! I don't think so.
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. There is Lots and i do mean Lots of gun play.But the major down fall of this game is it is way to difficult. I like a good challenge but this is just ridiculous.
Summary: A lot of people are talking about DTR as though it was a Max Payne clone. Aside from the issue of "bullet-time", or the slow-motion diving-while-shooting, DTR and Max share virtually nothing in common. Ok, so both are stories about ex-cops out for revenge, but that's where the similarities end. Dead to Rights has a lot more built-in diversity in gameplay than Max Payne does.
