  • Summary: It is the third decade of the 22nd century. Unemployment is endemic, boredom is universal and only the Judges can prevent total anarchy? Empowered to dispense instant justice, they are judge, jury and executioner all in one. The most feared and respected of all the Judges is Dredd ? he is the Law! In the darkest depths of Mega-City One a group calling themselves the Death Cult are devising a fiendish plan to free the evil Dark Judges from their holding chamber in a Justice Department penitentiary. Meanwhile the Judges of PSI Division have foreseen that the Big Meg will be blighted by a terrible plague. Soon enough, as predicted, there are outbreaks of vampirism across the city. Is this the return of some ancient, forgotten evil? [Vivendi Universal] Expand

  1. Arrests are fun for about two levels, and then you notice the same few sayings keep repeating when you slap the cuffs on perps.
  2. Certainly not one that will turn heads or be remembered by anyone, other than fans of the series, after a few weeks. Wait for the bargain bin.
  3. To be brutally honest, you are as imaginative as dry, unbuttered toast. [July 2004, p.65]
  4. It's a short, simplistic shooter that's not worth even its budget price.
  5. Your main objective is the bane of the modern FPS: follow a little blue arrow while shooting things, with the odd escort or protect responsibility thrown in to make you turn around occasionally. It's average justice dished out to the licence, but nothing more. [Christmas 2003, p.121]

    Fans of the fiction will finally appreciate a style that keeps the faith, but will wonder how this game could have done its source material the same sort of disservice the decade old movie did.
  7. A total waste of a fantastic licence - incredibly anti-climactic, a mere six hours long, full of uninspired levels and identikit enemies, and achingly tedious to play. Once finished I had to quickly uninstall it lest I ever accidentally clicked on that hateful icon again.

    One of the first zombiegames! This game is sometimes scary. It has a great atmosphere. It seems when a reviewer see the name Rebellion they think it can't be that good. But all of their games are beautiful. Look at the difference between the score of the reviewers and the userscores with all these good first person shooters. Reviewers are too scared to give populair games like Call of Duty bad ratings, while these games don't have any atmosphere. The userscrores are the scores of the real gamers. Judge Dredd is a really good fps. Expand

    It is a hard work to be judge, jury and executioner in Mega-City One. Never read comics, but certainly better than film with Stallone. I am the law. 52/100 Expand
