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: 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...
Summary: Dead to Rights: Retribution should be a title that has everything a man could want in a game: guns, hand-to-hand fighting, and a vicious dog. As Officer Jack Slate, you embody the prototypical rogue cop; your methods might be unorthodox, but dammit, you get results.
Excerpt: Dead to Rights: Retribution is a hard-hitting, explosive experience that has hints of noir films like Sin City and Max Payne rolled up into it and more than a dash of similarities to popular comic book superhero Batman and his Gotham City.
Excerpt: Hype is a little like hope. It’s like when you’re a kid and you’re hoping that the toy you’ve been harping on for all year, lives up to the hype. Dead to Rights: Retribution is a little like that and we’ve seen some great hype over the last few months, especially with some the awesome trailers...
Summary: When you're a cop in the gang-infested metropolis of Grant City, you need to know a thing or two about violence. And when you start to unravel a conspiracy that exponentially increases the number of people that want to kill you, you'd better be ready to get your hands bloody.
Pros: Great array of hand-to-hand combat maneuvers, Brutal takedowns from man and beast, Good momentum punctuated by some nice story moments
Cons: Animation issues lead to clipping and missed hits, Visuals are murky, character models seem inconsistent
Excerpt: It may not be the deepest or most original action experience out there, but it's hard to deny the cheap thrills, over-the-top attitude, and mind-numbingly brutal mayhem present in Volatile's latest.
Pros: Big explosions, powerful guns, and an over-the-top attitude make for a worthwhile action experience.
Summary: All in all, this game has been a blast to play. While it’s not perfect, it does offer some great story telling and the animations for Shadow are fantastic. It looks like they used motion capture for his animation. Jack is fun to play and for the most part, its a really enjoyable game to play.
Pros: Playing as Shadow is awesome, story is overall pretty nice, and the shooting works well.
Cons: The dialogue, checkpoint system is not the best, some weird glitches pop up every now and then.
