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.

"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.

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.

I chose the 5 star rating as my bro whom plays it greatly enjoys this game. Plus when i orderred this item I was shown that there is a version 2, which my bro did not think had been made. So i ordered both games.. to the great enjoyment from my bro when this came in.. as i had not told him about the version 2 also ordered. *grin*.

To top off his joy.. I ordered this item at 2pm central time, chose 2nd day shipping as bro "really likes that game". The games did not arrive in 2 days. They arrived 28 HOURS after the order was placed. Our thanks to IGEX Electronics for getting these shipped out faster than expected. By doing that you made a disabled mans day .. and mine as i am the one whom saw the huge grin of appreciation. Please share our thanks to your staff for getting things games shipped faster than asap. The next time that i place a order for a like item and IGEX Electronics is one of the sellers.. they will get the order. Be well.

this game is one of the best that namco has developed in he last year. It's awsome storyline and tense playing makes it a perfct gae for all you action/shooter lovers out there...It has over 20 different weapons to hose from... It is a game that you could never put down...It's slow mo action feature makes it all the better. Just imagein you dodgeing a bullet by millimeters and laughing at he fact the(opponent) shooting you has missed...you'll enjy this game for weeks or months to come.

Don't know how I ever let myself sell this game, but I'm getting another copy asap!

This game is the right mix of violence and fun. Choc-full of drama, action and analytical, brain-squeezing mini-games (not too easy...just challenging enough to lose a couple of times before you get the hang of it and pass it! Whew!)

Actually found myself doing a touchdown dance after a few of the stages.

Even today it ranks high with Prince of Persia - Sands of Time, God of War, Splinter Cell, Max Payne and the other great classics.
