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.

    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.

    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]
  6. Rebellion has taken a sci-fi world tailor-made for an FPS game and created a title that feels like it could have been made six years ago.
  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.

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

    Most people will find this in a Steam sale and wonder whether it's worth the pittance they're selling it for. The answer is yes.

    It's the perfect game for killing an hour or two with and as a fan of the comics it does everything right. It's ancient now and even for it's time the graphics were light. But the gameplay is fun and the Lawmaker weapon is handy against a variety of enemies.

    You kill zombies, vampires, cultists, vandals etc. but you can arrest people too which is a nice addition.

    Good game for Dredd fans.

    Recommended with reservation. 7.5/10 at a generous rating.

    It's short. Six hours max.
    The graphics are ancient. (Originally released in 2003.) They are a bit too clolourful in places.
    Sometimes enemies fly off when you kill them.
    Rescuing hostages in the hospital is a bit maze-like.

    However being a childhood 2000AD (and Dredd) reader, I liked it when I played it years ago. Out of curiosity of forgetting what it was like I just bought it again in the Black Friday sale (2014). I just played it and finished. I had a blast. It's gun and run and flows fast. There is still the odd surprise.

    It's a shame it will probaly never be re-made and improved and lengthened. Given its short length I can understand why it was panned in reviews years ago. Being a fan I can understand why I liked it.

The innovations in the law enforcement aspect are largely inconsequential. Straightforward and simple running and gunning is the order of the day and the game is all the better for it. Megacity One is a beautiful, ugly world, a really lovely place to kill things in. Judge Dredd comes across as a pretty nasty guy. That bothered me at first. Oh well, I was having great fun busting zombie heads. Expand
