  1. Dead to Rights: Retribution isn’t subtle or refined, but it excels at letting players move from one sleazy place to another and scouring it clean of life.
  2. It's like one of those trash movies: you feel somehow guilty but you still have fun playing it, thanks to the over-the-top action sequences and characters. Consider it if you like the brainless action genre and you can't wait for the bigger titles to come out the next month.
  3. The best part about the game? It's fun. While not as deep or as 'epic' as its peers, Dead To Rights: Retribution is a lot of fun from start to finish.
  4. Dead to Rights: Retribution completely focuses on action, with no concession to relax. Clearly, for those who seek waves of enemies to eliminate with a funny gameplay and great graphics. Fans of pure action and visual entertainment will enjoy the adventures of agent Jack Slate and his canine friend Shadow.

The voices are solid and playing with the dog is sometimes fun, but the story falls in short of being good. Full Review »

The single player is not A game that had massive potential and engrosing story lacks what would be called standard for games now a days. The single player is not enough to hide the lack of bonus extras (specifically costumes etc), and a lack of potential game modes for example: - a Challenge mode for the the dog Shadow (similar to Batman's AA except using Shadow to get the fastest time possible or no kills.) - A co-op where one controls Shadow and one controls Jack going through the story - A surival game where they have to survival round of enemies either PIt fighting style or with guns. As I said there is potential in this game but it was not captialised on its release. This game is by no means bad, the experience is good, unique and fun, but after you've completed the story and finished off the last trophies/achievements there is nothing left for you to do. DLC has been annouced for around June but is it too little too late? Full Review »
