  1. The body count is rivaled only by novel game-play features and production values that make blood spurts akin to snowflakes-no two are the same.
  2. Never before have I seen an action title with such deadly depth. [Sept 2002, p.86]
  3. 90
    Despite the less-then-mediocre camera movement and control, Dead To Rights is a fun romp through a Hong Kong-like movie with all the thrilling elements and action sequences that would make John Woo proud.
  4. With so many ways to kill your enemies, you will never get bored of the same sort of stuff every gunfight.
  5. This game is about variety to the Nth degree. You can fight a hundred different ways and still never be wrong.

    Bought this game based on the Maxim review in its mag. I'll never take their reviews at face value again. The game play is OK, but it gets tedious, the enemies never effin stop coming and they are damn good shots. This game is insanely difficult, but I guess it is supposed to be worth it. Not worth the time for me, I just stopped playing it after a while. Full Review »

    It is a very good game but the levels are unnecessary hard which won't let it be a 10!

    I borrowed this game and my friends xbox and seriously enjoyed it. I played Max Payne and couldn't really get into it, I applaud them for making a real mature game in all but I enjoy this game way more. THe Diving effect is sweet, There is a great selection of weapons, and the action is just non-stop almost. Besides the Cheesy plot , un-realistic cutscenes, mediocre minigames, and repetitive fight scenes I was amazed. I amlost bought an xbox until someone told me It's on the other systems and better. to bad, I guess. Apartment26 is key....listen .....just listen..... Full Review »
