Dead To Rights: Retribution
12 May 2010
Excerpt: Released in 2002, the original Dead To Rights —with its sadistic executions of enemies—was little more than a poor man’s Max Payne with an attack dog. The 2010 sequel doesn’t fare any better. The game tells—or rather, retells, since it hashes over the same narrative ground—the story of Jack Slate, a rogue cop whose most distinguishing characteristic is his Kratos-like anger over the murder of his father, from whom he inherited his blank, handsome looks.
Excerpt: Dead to Rights: Retribution reboots the Dead to Rights franchise with its action star Jack Slate and loveably vicious canine sidekick, Shadow the dog. The story is loosely based on the first game with Jack getting involved in his father�s messes and ultimately getting wrapped up in a crime spree that�s destroying Grant City. The presentation is pretty slick for the Dead to Rights title, but the character development is poor.
Summary: A game with a dog in it. A hard-drinking cop and a dog. A sequel as well. A game that moves gently from the laughably mediocre to the sigh-inducing bad with the elegance of a hard-drinking cop drinking hard. Conclusion: If someone gifts you this game, never see them again. Some of the AI enemies are not annoying.
Conclusion: Dead to Rights: Retribution is geen spel dat heel slecht is op één specifiek punt, maar het is wel zo plichtmatig en onorigineel dat er niet één goede reden is om je tijd eraan te besteden.
Pros: De graphics zijn zodra het niet beweegt best aardig, het is nergens écht kapot.
Cons: Erg inspiratieloos, houterig dekkingssysteem, focus modus stelt niets meer voor, stealthlevels als hond, zwak leveldesign, stroeve animaties, suffe gevechten.
