    This Game is just great. Its good in a number of ways. The way i would describe it is Max Payne, but 1,000 times better. If you haven't played Max Payne rent it and then buy Dead to Rights. Very fun game to play and the replay value 10.

    This is a great game. i bought it for only $40 and its well worth it. the gameplay is just like max payne but with even more style. the only thing bad about it is the graphics. the environment is pretty good but the character models are a bit sloppy, especially the faces and hands. but the gameplay makes up for it and is a well worth game to buy.

    Ridiculous game. I guess if you are looking for a brainless arcade shooter it isn't bad, but Max Payne is way better. The dufus cop you play actually turns his gun over to a thug, then fights him to get it back. But no matter, when you *do* find a really cool weapon the dufus just throws it away when it runs out of ammo. Oh yes, can't forget about the side-kick dog who actually Ridiculous game.

    Dead to Rights is a great game even though it is similar Max Payne. The mini-games are great and they are different from one another, the graphics and controls are good.

    The run-and-gun portions of Dead to Rights come together so perfectly that you become enraptured by your ability to take down hordes of bad guys in classic Jon Woo style. It's these intense, visceral, wicked gunfights that make you forget reality and draw you completely into Slate's fantasy world of fast and furious gun-slinging action.
  2. Despite a number of difficult to spot and ultimately underwhelming "improvements", the Cube and PS2 versions of Dead to Rights remain generally engaging, with an uneven sprinkling of genius.

    If you're a Nintendo loyalist who's never experienced "Max Payne," this should be the next game you buy. [Jan 2003, p.102]
