Dead to Rights: Retribution
This game is not worth buying.
I bought this game on the premise it was a shooter not a fighting game with exhausting combinations (my hand cramped up). The graphic are early tomb raider with people ending half in walls half out, the fighting action is poor and unrealistic. If you really want this game wait till it is only a couple of bucks or rent it.
Good sequel to a good series.
Some may think the game was short but I thought it was right on par with a good fun play through void of many annoyances such as bad frame rate or glitches that hindered my gameplay at least. Being able to utilize Shadow and even control him in some instances was rather fun but I still wish it was a tad more interactive in that respect. Control and camera usage was fairly smooth. Gunplay was simple and fun including a decent array of weaponry but still could have used a bit more. Take-downs always seemed fun regardless of the repetition that will occur. They did a good job of mixing it up. The lighting effects were also pretty good depicting an older Noir action flick. May not be worth it to keep this game but definitely a good game worth a quick take home from the used section.
what a surprise.
i had heard about dead to rights before but i wasnt expecting this game to be this good. Even though all the hype went to the release of splinter cell conviction and lost planet 2, this game deserved some attention. this game was so freaking awesome. it had almost everything a game needs. shooting, fist fights, sniping, stealth and guess what you even get to control Shadow( awesome dog, i wish i had one like that). Even though this game lacks multiplayer i recommend everyone to at least rent this game and give it a try, you wont be disappointed. this game is clearly one of the underrated games out there. Play it and you will find out how good this game is. the storyline has a little twist as well which made the game even more interesting.
Dead to Rights Retribution Review
To me, this game really wasn't too amazing. Looks like every review before me thinks this game is a 10/10, but I just didn't see the 10 in it. It's like a Gears of War type game set in the Police Zone, except you dont get to hold onto your weapons long because you throw the gun on the ground whenever it runs outta ammo, although that may be more realistic in the situation. Yes there's quite a few guns, finishing moves and what not, and playing as Shadow is pretty cool, but after I beat the campaign I didn't have the too much of a feeling to go back and replay it. This game passes some time, but overall it's just okay-good.
Hope its as good as it looks....
The video looks superb it gave off lots of energy of the game. The abilities you can do and your little doggy, well get ready to get dog eaten. Talk about a guard dog, this dog will do anything you'll tell him to do. Now that's awesome. And it even looks like you are able to play as him that's G. The whole game looks good, but i hope it'll be as good as it looks.
Very good game
I was a big fan of the first Dead To Rights for the PS2, but the 2nd one was terrible and I did not like it.. I rented this game and it was a GREAT game A+++ this was a big improvment than the 2nd one.. It has a great story line, good weapons, plus you can control shadow in certain parts which was very fun.. Plus you can do different disarms and fighting combos which will knock the enemy on the ground, also I was suprised at how long the game was and the achievments are easy to get.. This is by far the best game I have played all year and I really hope they continue the series, if you like fighting, shooting, and killing people with a dog this game is for you.. It has I think three levels of difficulty so you want have a problem passing it, give it a try you will like it!!
best game ever
played on normal xbox and is sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the funnest was with penicle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sweet game. plays like an arcade game. definitely a shoot em up type game that plays really well
I pre ordered this game the day I heard about it. First off I just want to give a bit of back ground on my play style, so you can see where you might fit in. This year I've bought and beat FFXIII, SC:C, Metro 2033, MassEffect 2. I'm a true gamer in that I like an array of different genres. I heard alot of negativity towards this title. I know that some people are making those judgements based on the xbox game from 2002. I personally enjoyed it on the xbox but that doesn't even begin to compare to this version. The graphics which everyone said were terrible, I found very enjoyable as they fit the setting of the game perfectly. They have a gritty, feel to them...which I found to be quite appealing. It's as good as bioshock 2 or metro 2033 grapically. Now for the combat...since this is a mix of brawler, 3rd person shooter. The combat is actually very fluid when in hand to hand fights, and easily switches to shooting at the pull of a button. The take downs and executions are amazing (but can drag on after seeing them 50 times) and visually impressive. I enjoyed the realistic approach to the cover system...the fact that it's destructible makes the pacing all the better. If anyone ever played MK shoalin monks, that's what the hand to hand fighting reminds me of(which IS a good thing.) The contols were all very responsive. But the best part of this game is shadow...he truly is the thing that sets this game apart from other 3rd person shooters. The stealth missions are an enjoyable break from the constant combat that is the core of Dead to Rights Retribution. He's even useful when commanding him while playing as jack...something lacking in the original one. In closing i'd just like to say wow, the story is far better than even I expected. Infact my girlfriend even cried in one part that takes place very early in the story. I was even a little teary eye'd....I'm telling ya check it out!!! I don't think you'll regret it. Although the lack of any multiplayer or co op may make this game a rental for most gamers.
Hated this game so much
This game is on my list of worst games ever played. I'll have to actually go back and think about which one is my worst game of all time, and I wouldn't be surprised if this took the cake. I'm sure there are people who enjoyed it a lot and progressed through the story enough or whatever, but the whole entire time I was frustrated with the gameplay. This is the only game to ver make me so mad that I ejected it from my xbox and ALMOST broke it (I didn't, I got my money back instead). But never have even come close to doing that before. Defiantly my ultimate rage quit game.
