Dead to Rights
20 December 2012
Excerpt: So I go to Funcoland to cop a new game, and the clerk tells me to get DEAD TO RIGHTS it is going to be hot!!! So I got it. I haven't slept in two days!! I need help. I can't stop shooting and disarming jokers. I can't stop punching and kicking punks in the mouth.
Summary: F*** you, you c***s***ing son of a b****, now you’re really gonna eat b*lls, you motherf***ing pr**k! Eat my sh**, you f***ing sh**head d**k-licker! I’m gonna rip off your b*lls and sh** down your f***ing neck!
Pros: It’s an entertaining enough action game, if they’d shut off the soundtrack, remove all the gore, and dump the finishing animations. In other words, it, could’ve been, good if developed by a team with any taste or breeding whatsoever.
Cons: Oh, how can I ever thank Volatile Games for allowing me to play as the dog and rip everyone’s throat out?, Long and generally gory finishing move animations in fights., Mortal Kombat, for “gangsta“ film fans., You know, it’s hard to dig in to a good, intelligent discussion on literature, cinema a...
Conclusion: You'll be hard pressed to find a game with as much action as this one has to offer. Ive played through twice, in some cases three times and I still find this game to be fun. I wouldnt recommend paying more than $20 on it because it definately does not do anything groundbreaking but it is an awesome...
Summary: A few days ago, I was crushing beers at Shenanigans, a restaurant-cum-watering-hole in Sewanee, Tennessee, home of my alma mater , The University of the South. Specifically, I was talking with my friend Reed about videogames, and I mentioned that I was playing the new Dead to Rights -- less a sequel...
Summary: All in all the game offers nothing we haven’t seen before. What the game does do, it does in a way that is neither innovative, nor inherently bad, it’s all just kind of there. While the game has it’s charm, after beating it, I didn’t get the sudden urge to start up a new game the way I do with some...
Review: Dead to Rights: Retribution (Microsoft Xbox 360)
19 August 2010
Summary: : Dead to Rights: Retribution is probably the best game from its series yet, and to its credit, it’s enjoyable enough if you don’t have high expectations, but it does nothing to elevate itself to anything more than “average”Â� as an experience.
Excerpt: I like biting off men's genitalia as much as the next guy, but after a while it tends to get a bit old. Once you've chomped and chewed your eleventh set of meat-and-two-veg, it simply ceases to be that big of a deal.
Ultra-graphic violence plus moral ambiguity equals No Kids.

Summary: Parents need to know that Dead to Rights: Retribution is one bloody and violent game, making it not for kids. In fact, it's blood upon blood upon blood. Blood gushes, spatters, spews, flows, and pools almost constantly, pretty much from every part of the body that bleeds.
Excerpt: Dead to Rights wasn’t a particularly well regarded series, which makes it a weird choice for the reimagining treatment. The story and universe were both generic and there was little real interest for people to see another take on it, which didn’t stop Namco going ahead and rebooting the series with...
