Anticipating the worst if the crime boss is not brought to justice, Jack Slate and his K-9 companion Shadow thrust themselves into hostile gang territory to save the informant and bring peace to the City. Dead to Rights: Reckoning expands upon the blistering action of the series with a robust ranged and melee fighting system that allows Jack to spit lead and bust heads with ease, and an all-new selection of weapons and lethal disarms. Players will also have unprecedented control of Shadow, utilizing him to watch Jack's back and unleash savage canine fury on lowlife thugs. For the first time in the series Dead to Rights: Reckoning allows players to go head to head through wireless multiplayer death matches, adding hours of replay value to an already extensive single player campaign.

  1. A superb single player blast fest with hardly any load times is just what the doctor ordered, and a multiplayer mode made especially for those deathmatch enthusiasts really keeps the longevity of this title well up there.
  2. I’ve passed this game around to people who have never even held a PSP before and they have picked up on the gameplay in less than ten minutes and have enjoyed it just as much as I have.
  3. Perhaps the most damning thing about this game is that its simple nature is almost out of necessity. [Aug 2005, p.106]
  4. Namco's foray into the PSP platform hits a huge snag, as Reckoning's overly simple and repetitive gameplay takes the skill (and fun) away.
  5. 50
    If Namco just spent another month or two polishing the camera and targeting, it could have had a rock solid action title under its belt.
  6. It's broken, it's brief, and it'll only make you wonder "what if" every time you play it.
  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. Expand

    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 Expand

Great quick to play game. Reviews have been WAY too harsh. The game is being compared to console versions, its not really fair. However, it does have it's bugs, but not bugs to take it any lower than a 6. I would give it a solid 7.5. It's fun, you get to kill stuff, and take it anywhere. What else can you ask for? The game is WAY worth picking up, you will enjoy it, I am, and the cheats you unlock make it even more fun! Expand

Once again PSP has failed to impress me with a game with terrible controls and brain dead action. Once agan they runed a possibly good game due to faulty planing and rushing the job. They could have just set this one back a few months like all their other games... Expand
