    This game was o.k. Better than Doom 3 though. Better graphics and awsome moves in this one. The first one was good but this one is too. This game is very challenging. It is fun but it could be very frustrating.

    Your all so critical, its so fun just slaughtering endless amounts of enemys, and the tension just melts away after a hard day, its kinda like Painkiller or Serious Sam, only theres bullet time, ooo and a dog!!! :O

    While the gameplay is similar to max payne, the quality isn't even close. The graphics are decent, but the gameplay is ultra repetitive here. Also the enemies all look the same and are uber stupid. I really don't like the flow of the game either. All of a sudden you're stripped of all your gun weapons and forced into hand to hand combat.

While the mild change is appreciated, it makes no sense to just suddenly have no weapons when you move into the next room. On the plus side, this does feel old school - just shooting 100s of mindless minions. I could probably play it through to the end if I was bored - there's some entertainment value here. Expand

    Why do companies even bother making these horrible Max payne style games anymore? Max Payne wasn't that good to begin with, so why keep making these cookie-cutter 3rd person shooters on Xbox? I expect the PS2 to have a million 3rd person shooters and hack-n-slashers, but enough of this bargain bin garbage on Xbox. Did they actually think they could compete with Doom 3 and Splinter Why do companies even bother making these horrible Max payne style games anymore?

    Much like Dante and "Devil May Cry 2," let's hope this is just a sophomore slump, and this series will come back stronger in a future installment. If not, it truly is dead to rights.

    Contrived shooter with little to no depth... This is as generic as they come. [July 2005, p.122]

    It's almost as if the developers of Dead to Rights II decided to rip out the fun factor that flowed freely through the original, leaving an empty shell of a frustrating and quite dreadful product.
