  1. It's broken, it's brief, and it'll only make you wonder "what if" every time you play it.
  2. There are times when the game is fun, but it simply fails to overcome its numerous shortcomings.
  3. Despite its relative good looks, Dead to Rights: Reckoning is more an exercise in frustration than an enjoyable diversion. Not even the four player WiFi deathmatch mode is enough to save this one from the bowels of the budget bargain bin.
  4. Imagine an aging Max Payne with debilitating rheumatoid arthritis, failing eyesight and prone to fits of epilepsy. That's what you can expect when you play as Jack Slate in Dead to Rights: Reckoning...This game gets no points for trying. Dead to Rights: Reckoning, in no uncertain terms, sucks.

    I really love how shallow this game is, but at the same time Namco should be ashamed for even releasing it since it obviously needed more time to cook.
  6. An abomination of a product that wasn't really all that solid to begin with. When a game that depends on a lock-on system and camera to deliver compelling action can't even get that right, it's just not worth playing, and Reckoning is the very definition of wasted money. Stay far, far away.
  7. Tough aiming, repetitive gameplay and totally uninspired story elements send the game into a downward spiral, one that ends with a very short single-player mode and few extras. This cop should be kicked off the force.

As a big fan of the Hong Kong action cinema, I love the spectacular martial arts disarms, executions and the bullet time shooting. Sure it has some bugs, but so does every game. There's a pretty nice variety of firearms in your arsenal and your dog, Shadow, is also a good "weapon". There is also multiplayer and there are challenge modes as well to keep you attached longer to the game. I recommend it to everybody who likes a good and fun third person shooter, similar to gaming classics like Max Payne or Stranglehold. Full Review »

    really good, but much too short, a little repetitive and the guns are about the same throughout. a few new guns are cool when u get them,likereally good, but much too short, a little repetitive and the guns are about the same throughout. a few new guns are cool when u get them,like the AK 47 and the heavy machine gun. this game when too fast for me though. there's about 10 missions that take about 5 to 10 minutes each(some are even less). but its still a fun pick up and play and i would recommend trying it Full Review »
