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] Collapse

  1. Other genre entries could learn a thing or two from this game for multi-functional weapons and minimized load times.
  2. More than any other game around, Dredd vs Death is destined to be a real fan favourite. Sure, we love the Lawgiver, in places the visual style works well, but generally this is a run-of-the-mill FPS dogged by an adherence to the laws of Dredd’s world. This is little more than a dependable shooter.
  3. Arrests are fun for about two levels, and then you notice the same few sayings keep repeating when you slap the cuffs on perps.
  4. 50
    For those starved action gamers in need of an immediately accessible fix, there is still some strange sense of joy to be found in pointlessly gunning down the minions of evil in colorful environments.
  5. 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.
  6. Okay in the short term, but there are far too many superior FPS out there. [May 2004, p.38]
  7. I hereby decree Dredd vs. Death to be an inferior product. My ruling is that the game should be executed.
