    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

    This shoot 'em up game is just full of enemies to take target practice left and right....If you're into that sorta thing

    This third person shooter combines a feel of Tomb Raider and Syphon Filter with looser mechanics borrowed from alot of different games to allow you to do more then just jump different directions and shoot. It's faster pa... Read Full Review

    Dead To Rights is a game, at least not for me because of several reasons. First of all it is a mad boring game because of its boring gameplay and presentation. There is many many enemies or goon(whoever they are) in the ... Read Full Review

    Not a bad game. A lot of shoot, shoot, and shoot some more, then maybe think of some questions to ask.

    The game wasn't that bad, I mean I had a lot of fun playing it. It's just that the story has been done before plenty of times, and it was just a little too unrealistic for me. You play as Jack Slate a cop who has been... Read Full Review
