    Poorly designed levels with lackluster textures and little to no environmental interaction only compound the game's senseless enemy AI. [May 2004, p.84]
  2. But for the crimes of middling graphics and dull-as-dirt game play, we sentence Dredd vs. Death to eternal burial in the discount bin at Costco. Court adjourned.

    A great shooter with sharp graphics, cool environments, and fun gameplay but not a lot of polish. I have no prior history with the Judge DreddA great shooter with sharp graphics, cool environments, and fun gameplay but not a lot of polish. I have no prior history with the Judge Dredd comics or movies, and really just decided to pick this up on a whim. I had a lot of fun with it, yes it's flawed but manages to have enough charm and it's self aware humor to make me forgive it. The main problem with the game is that it's glitchy, mostly during the boss fights which will cause you to have to reload the checkpoint because either you or the boss got stuck in the environment. It's also pretty short. Outside of the campaign (which can be played with a friend) there is local multiplayer and a arcade mode which you can play to unlock cheat codes. If your looking for a shooter that does something new you might want to check this out. Full Review »

    Overall - disappointing. What could have been exceptional is undone by too many sloppy elements that fail to take advantage of the Overall - disappointing. What could have been exceptional is undone by too many sloppy elements that fail to take advantage of the Xbox's capabilities. Problems: the gameplay is way too repetitive; the arrest sequence is dreadful - way too fast, you can't read the arrest details which waste's the point and ruins the armosphere; for a megacity with millions of people, it is incredibly empty, too many scenes have no-one in them - I wanted a realistic, over-run city, particularly the mall scenes; the characters who are in the game are ALL the same - the same fat guy, the same afro guy, the same knee pad guy, the same scrawler girl. It's appalling - no variety at all. Again, ruins the atmosphere. The rag doll AI is annoying. And why do so many games resort to horror elements? V annoying - Dredd comics rarely resort to horror. The lawenforcer gun is a great idea - the different settings etc - yet they NEVER all get used. The ricochet bullet is NEVER used throughout. The environment is also repetitive and not interactive - the posters and signs are the same throughout - BORING! The good - the cityscape backgrounds look exceptional. It's a poor man's Halo/Doom, but it's still entertaining and challenging enough to be worth a play. Full Review »
