    Dead to Rights is a great movie-esque game with a solid plot.

    Few games capture the fun of exaggerated action movies like The Matrix. Max Payne came quite close. Not long after is Dead to Rights, one of my favourite games of all time. It's hard to explain, really; it's like an acti... Read Full Review

    Dated, but still pretty fun especially if you're a John Woo fan or you like Max Payne, Stranglehold or even Wet.

    I was pretty pumped to play this. I am a MASSIVE fan of John Woo, and I search for any game inspired by him. I loved Max Payne, Stranglehold, Wet, and even Dead To Rights: Reckoning on the PSP. Well, thankfully, this is... Read Full Review

    A Throwback to the old days

    Fifteen or twenty years ago, this game would have been in arcades across this country, and would be referred to as a quarter eater. Okay maybe I am stretching it. That is what me and my friends called games like this. B... Read Full Review

    Great game that seems to harbor love for good old Max Payne

    I'd like to start off by saying that the "Failed" screen of the game (equivalent to Game Over) simply isn't pretty enough for the amount of times you're going to see it. If you can overlook the several flaws it presents ... Read Full Review

    Pretty good shooter, with addicting fighting.

    Let's cut to the chase, this game's gameplay is amazing! You wouldn't want to stop playing it. The Bad For a game that came out in 2002/2003 the graphics could have looked better (Socom, Gran Turismo 3, Metal Gear Sol... Read Full Review

    If you want carpal tunnel syndrome at age 28 with good visuals and audio qualities, then this is your game.

    Third person action/shooter games always feel extremely unappealing to me; there are very few titles in the genre that feel genuinely fun because usually underneath the luscious graphics and unique game play innovations ... Read Full Review
