Product Description

From the Manufacturer

One good cop. One bad situation. Meet Jack Slate. A cop on the beat in Grant City, unaware that his next call is about to change his life. What he discovers will send him on a downward spiral into a labyrinth of corruption, betrayal, and crime. A supercharged action noir thriller, Dead to Rights delivers what only the best action movies can: the gripping storyline, larger-than-life action hero, and adrenaline-charged experience. All that's missing is you!

Product Description

Inspired by Hong Kong action movies, classic film noir style and hardboiled detective novels, Dead to Rights stars action noir hero, Jack Slate, a good cop in a bad city. He is forced to be a fugitive as he fights for his life and searches for his father's killers. The game features more than a dozen game mechanics, including diving, rolling, punching, kicking and lethally disarming enemies. Jack's canine partner (a Husky named Shadow) lives up to the name "man's best friend," helping Jack investigate crime scenes, sniff out bombs, retrieve weapons and attack enemies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead to Rights. . . May 7, 2003
By --
Verified Purchase
"Dead to Rights" is the kind of non-stop action game that will remind you why you play console games in the first place. Though the game's premise, style, and source of inspiration are easy to compare to "Max Payne," the games themselves are readily distinguishable from one another, and both are equally as worthy of your gaming attentions.
"Dead to Rights" casts you as Jack Slate, a larger-than-life cop in the fictional cesspool of Grant City, whose only real friend appears to be his canine partner, Shadow. Early on, Slate discovers the body of his murdered father in a construction yard, and then the action comes hot and heavy from then on.
Slate's gun-slinging antics and martial arts brawls are quick to remind one of a John Woo film. The hand-to-hand fighting system is immensely enjoyable and reminiscent of updated classics like "Double Dragon" and "Final Fight." The majority of the game's setpeices, though, involve thousands of flying bullets, and the gunplay is truly extraordinary. Capping the bad guys is rarely this satisfying, particularly in a game viewed from a 3rd person perspective. To add icing to the cake, Slate has a series of violent "disarms" he can employ to turn a battle in his favor, and executing them properly is gratifying in all its M-rated glory. "Dead to Rights" wisely switches between hand-to-hand battles and fierce gunfights at a fairly regular interval to ensure that the game doesn't get repetitive.
Unfortunately, "Dead to Rights" also favors mini-games and puzzles that crop up every now and again to slow down the action. The idea is a sound one, but most of these sessions are just exercises in button-mashing frenzy. On the plus side, though, the mini-games segue into the storyline almost seamlessly, so they're not as jarring as they might otherwise have been.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dead to Rights review (by CK Gaming) November 21, 2003
By Derek
Dead to Rights is about a K-9 cop Jack Slate who patrols Grant City with his trusty dog Shadow. While patrolling a construction site, Slate finds someone (I won't ruin it for you) very close to him murdered. Against orders, Slate sets off in search answers and revenge. The story in Dead to Rights is narrated by Jack himself, and involves some pretty decent twists and turns. All told, by the time the player reaches the end of the game, NAMCO does a good job in tying up all of the loose ends in the plot. Dead to Rights is one of those games that are excellent in simulating what it would be like left on your own surrounded by a ridiculously large amount of or when his weapon is hostered. Jack can holster his weapon at any point in the game. While fighting without a weapon, the player can use Jack to kick, punch, and perform combo's (unlock them all!) on the enemies. He can even creep up behind them, disarm them (take their weapon). and use them as a human shield. The plot itself in DtR is plenty engaging and never boring due to a plethora of different inventive scenarios and mini-games. Mini games range from trying to pick locks to making strippers dance. You will surely never find the gameplay in Dead to Rights boring, dull, or uncreative. Weapons Slate can carry are also widely varied, and while using them 'bad guys,' just like in the movies. In this sense, Dead to Rights will remind many people of Max Payne. Dead to rights is objective-based, and Jack Slate will have to gun down / beat up countless enemies before reaching each next one.
Gameplay in Dead to Rights is extremely inventive and varied, whether staged that way or made that way by the player's choice of fingerstrokes. For example, there are two whole sets of controls for when Jack Slate is armed or when his weapon is hostered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: Highly Addictive. Only for Serious Gamers. January 28, 2003
When I first rented this game, I didn't expect much.
NAMCO products don't exactly make me do a double take.
I only gave it a chance because it's a shooter game.
Boy was I surprised! I was totally addicted. I don't
care for hand-to-hand combat, but, overall, the battle
scheme was user friendly. Too bad you can only slow-mo
while diving, and you're dog meat if you dive in a
direction in which you can't see your enemy. I just
love the disarm sequences. My dog Shadow got plenty of
action if I wasn't being hurried by the enemies. This
game kept me excited the whole way through. You can
actually change the difficulty at any time during the
game, which is cool for those harder to beat situations.
Thanks Namco. This one's a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game that deserves some credit. September 28, 2006
By Gil
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I won't write a lengthy review, as many others on here have said enough. However, I would like to inject my own thoughts, as I enjoyed this game immensely. Sure, It may be a Max Payne spinoff, ripoff,or whatever you may label it, but it does have some unique qualities of it's own. I played Max payne one and two, and both games have some striking similarities. Both Max and Jack are cops who have lost loved ones to horrific violence, and are intent on revenge and retribution, no matter what it takes. Heck, the two even resemble each other physically. One thing Max did not have, was Shadow, the faithful k9.

I just finished this game a few days ago, and I'll be honest..for me, this was one of the most challenging games I have played for a while. The bosses in this game are the toughest I have faced so far, and I spent many nights tossing my controller down in frustration. Overall, if you are into the noir, this is for you. Despite my liking this game, it's not without it's flaws


Good graphics

Nice array of weapons

great storyline

Excellent controls


Mini-games..This is a true waste of time, especially the lifting part. I'm surprised i did not damage my controller buttons, lol.

Awkward camera angles on some levels.

Other than that, I highly suggest this game, as it's super cheap now. Enjoy!
