Summary: If you don't know superhero Dredd, his thing is he doesn't just foil opponents. First he arrests them. Then he tries them. Then he convicts them. Then he executes them. All in about 10 seconds. This is droll. Is it satire of the right? Or fodder for the right? Beats me. With this fine game you can try it from the Dredd perspective.
Summary: Judge Dredd vs Death for the Xbox is a first person shooter (FPS) where you play as judge dredd. You might enjoy this game more if you watched and liked the movie or comic book it is based on. As Judge Dread you have authority to arrest, judge and execute criminals. By a simple push of a button serveral times your character will yell out "put your hands where i can see them, or you're under arrest". You push a diffrent button and you will handcuffs them.
Excerpt: Judge Dredd is probably the most successful British comic strip superhero created since the seventies. His adventures in 2000AD comic are an inspired mix of action, drama and manic satirical humour. Dredd is a brilliantly subversive character. By today’s standards he is a ruthless fascist, sometimes almost monstrous, yet against the insanity of Mega City One, a futuristic city which covers the East Coast of the USA, he frequently becomes a heroic figure of order and...
Pros: Good attention to detail, great voice acting
I thought it was true to story and battle mode is brilliant.

Summary: True to the story,good graphics,very playable and the other sections of the game like battle which you get for completing levels of the story are varied and good and with many of your own options to change around.I really like it myself.Thanks.
Summary: I grew up reading 2000AD and loved every issue, but recently stopped reading due to the over whelming blandness of the once great comic. Dread vs Death seems to be a victim of this same mundanity, wish I could say "I played it constantly and my head exploded with excitment on more than one occasion"! but I cant. The game felt like it was banged out with not a great deal of thought over the actual source material.
Poor, unimaginitive and unengaging use of a license

Summary: I used to read 2000AD and Judge Dredd and was excited by the prospect of Mega City One being brought to life in a game. The world of Judge Dredd, brought vividly to life on a decent games console, was a mouthwatering prospect: it had a huge back catalogue of characters and plots, it had all the superb kit of the Judges. The game fails to make use of any of this.
Summary: As a fan of Judge Dredd for over twenty years I am absolutely delighted with the way this game has been produced. It really captures the essence of the comic books and the environments are so perfectly put together that you really feel that you are following a story from the Dredd comic strip. I think that the lawmeter is a great touch to the game, the more arrests you make (as opposed to killing the perps) is well thought out.
Summary: This is the first game by Oxford developers Rebellion after buying 2000AD and all the rights to it, Will it be the first in a long line of 2000AD influenced games? we will see!. The game is based in Mega city 1 a huge sprawling city set in the future after a nuclear war, The city is policed by the Judges and they have the power of judge jury and executioner.
