"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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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 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.

The game arrived well into the time window promised, but in better than expected condition. It looks barely used. And I might know why. First, a quick bio. I'm 45 years old. Read morePublished on May 7, 2013 by RetroPops
