    Challenging but a bit Repetitive !

    It's simple, enjoyable, and in wisely steering clear of trying anything grand or complex, is an enjoyable if self-contained success. Game Information and play-through Dead to Rights: Retribution completely focuses... Read Full Review

    This game fell short of my expectations for a Dead to Rights reboot

    In Dead to Rights: Retribution, you take control of renegade cop Jake and his trusty dog Shadow to put an end to the corruption in Grant City. The twisting plot of the dark crime noir story is probably the best part of... Read Full Review

    UNDER RATED. I'm so glad I got it. Get it and get it new. There NEEDS to be a sequel!

    First off I truly am glad I went ahead and bought this, new and everything. Namco and Volatile really did a great job, get this and you'll know. This game beautifully blends top notch third person shooting and jaw droppi... Read Full Review

    Not as bad as everyone is making out

    So i needed something to play. I went to my game rentals and thought that DTR:R looked interesting. AND WHAT??? I get to play as the guy's DOG?? Awesome! So the story is very run of the mill. Simply, you are Jack,... Read Full Review

    The resurrected dead

    I figured that the Dead to Rights franchise was DOA. The last console game was released back in 2005, which is a lifetime in the video game world. When this new installment was announced it went straight on my wishlist. ... Read Full Review

    I have to admit - I wasn't sure if I wanted to get this game or not, based on the reviews posted. So I settled on renting it. And now I can say that if I had bought it - I wouldn't feel sorry. The game is very well ma... Read Full Review

    A good concept, great gameplay, and worth a play but let down by a so so story and a lack of atmosphere and immersion.

    Dead to rights: retribution(DTRR) is a fun game and worth checking out. I'm guessing the game took me 10-12 hours to complete and I have to say it was good fun. The first half of the game is much better as later leve... Read Full Review

    It's always a relaxing pleasure to break some bones while gaming! ;)

    This game is great! To be honest, I don't understand where the bad reviews came from! Not exactly a masterpiece, but is just plain fun from start to finish. Detective Jack Slate has to dispatch lots of thugs. Uses his... Read Full Review
