Mechanically dated, this game is best left to fans of the series

Summary: This game was built just well enough for me to play it through to the end, but it became a chore after several seemingly-never-ending levels. Ultimately, it was a completely forgettable experience. Despite having a solid beginning for the story that got me interested, it devolved into a cliched cop story with excessive amounts of machismo, gratuitous cursing, and violent head busting (dare I say, even more than Max Payne 3).
Summary: The Good: Decent story, Shadow and Jack are memorable characters, playing as Shadow is a brutal blast, fighting has depth, lots of different weapons, looks pretty good The Bad: Gets really repetitive towards the end, story isn't anything special, weapons are standard affair, fighting feels a bit stiff, cover based gamep play isn't flawless Dead to Rights has been a very rocky series since its debut in 2003.

Summary: I mean this very much when I say this game is brutal and fun, this game is so brutal it made me uncomfortable at times like God of War 3 did. Even when you are playing as the dog it is brutal but fun. The brutality is what makes me give it 3 stars, the story is bleh,the graphics is decent(I have an 1080p HDTV), and the action is on point with the takedowns
Summary: My 11-year-old son got this for his birthday. He loves the game. Ever since Call of Duty he has taken an interest in these kinds of games. I can't stand the swearing. I realize the ESRB rating is M for Mature, but does the character really need to say "Mother F***ers" in this game? There isn't this level of swearing on Modern Warfare 2. I just turn the volume down. What happened to the days of Mario Bros?
Summary: (3.5 out of 5 is my true score) Hmm.. just sad to see such an effort by Volatile games be pretty much ignored or worse, ridiculed.. I will be the first to admit this game has some wonky elements and is obviously not on par 'technically' from the big guns like Bioshock or Uncharted, but it doesn't make it any less fun to play. I liked all the tidbits put into the 'Extras' ..you don't see that a lot these days.
Summary: Boy when splinter cell conviction revamped in all awsomeness, I was really pumped to see what the creative minds of our time would do here. Nothing, they actually made it worse! How is that even possible? Whatever, the action is great for about 3 minutes. Put down the controller, and try to get part of your money back by reselling it fast. Hands down, huge disappointment. Not because it is so very bad, but because it was pushed to be so much better.
Summary: Ok this will be a short review and to the point. The game is ok...it has a pretty good story but does get a little repetitive. But saying this, it is a fun game to play through one time but not more then once. The things I did not like about it would be that it uses the F word probably about 15x a level (there is 10 levels, that take at least an hour each) as well as a fair amount of Gods name in vain.
Solid Gameplay That Expires By The End Of The Game

Summary: Dead To Rights is a frantic, violent, and frequently foul mouthed third person shooter. To begin with its also a lot of fun! The game is designed so that you won't plough through the levels armed to the teeth with arsenal, you'll need to enter into fist fights to disarm your enemies and take their weapons. To begin with the balance seems just right, however on later levels the way the game forces you to do hand to hand battle is rather ludicrous.
