  1. Jack Slate's noir-style story is told with cheesy writing that will delight some, but make others cringe. [Jan 2005, p.139]
  2. In Dead to Rights you will be fighting the faulty gameplay mechanics more than the enemy. The sloppy design prohibits me from recommending it.
  3. As just a basic shooter it isn't actually too bad; but with some incredibly short and easy levels, the game can be completed in a couple of days and you will probably have little desire to play through it again.
  4. The shooting interface is unreliable and tough to get the hang of, which is unfortunate considering that Dead to Rights is supposedly an action game steeped in gunplay.
  5. 10
    Just one big, frustrating mess. It looks bad, it sounds worse, and you'll be wishing you were playing almost anything else by the end of the first level.

    This horrid game actually accomplishes the dauting task of being even worse than its horrid console counterpart. This game is boring and ugly. That's all there is to it. Collapse
