Product Description

Product Description

ThThrusting players into a mature neo-noir crime drama as a vice-cop Jack Slate and his canine companion Shadow, the game introduces new gameplay elements that unify the third-person shooting and brawling genres for a brutal and relentless new action-driven experience.

Returning to Grant City, a boom town gone bust that is falling to the worst excesses of crime, greed and corruption, Dead To Rights: Retribution follows vice-cop Jack Slate as he fights to expose shadowy figures that will stop at nothing to exert their deadly influence over the crumbling metropolis. Dead To Rights: Retribution will form an original story portraying key events that shape and define Jack Slate's character including how he and Shadow first come together as partners against those who would bring the once great city to its knees.r>
Introducing an innovative new hybrid combat system, Dead To Rights: Retribution puts the full combat potential of a highly trained, highly agitated law-enforcement officer into players' hands. Use your sidearm to pick off enemies from a distance, take cover and blind-fire with the game's new ranged combat mechanics, or push the issue by taking human shields, stealing weapons with special disarm moves or dishing out Jack's own brutal brand of justice with deadly takedown moves. Jack is equally lethal in close-quarters combat, offering players branching melee combos, counter-attacks and disarms as they take the fight to the criminal element of Grant City. Jack will encounter a variety of ruthless gangs in the filthy slums and menacing alleys of Grant City, each with their own unique abilities and fighting style that will test his resolve to crush their murderous stranglehold.

Manufacturer's Description

Vice cop Jack Slate has a whole city to clean up and the only one willing to help him is his loyal canine partner Shadow. Hunted and betrayed, the pair must take on the whole corrupt city by themselves and uncover a mass conspiracy against them.

Jack is a great marksman but he can't do everything himself
The new cover system lets you pick the right time to attack
Shadow has zero tolerance for crime as well
Take on gangs of criminals with the 360 combat system

Inspired by the best of Hong Kong action cinema Jack is a master of hand-to-hand combat and a skilled marksman, allowing you to take down gangs of enemies at once in mass brawls or gun down criminals using an intuitive new cover system.

There are some situations though, where a man's best friend is better equipped to handle things and you can now not only order Shadow into action with a few simple commands but also take direct control of him at any time. With vicious disarming attacks for both man and dog this is a third person shooter with real bite.

Key Features
  • Man and Dog: Jack Slate and Shadow return to gaming with their own unique style of crime fighting and intense third person combat.
  • Hand-to-Hand: Perform brutal takedowns and take part in all-new 360 degree combat as Jack demonstrates his melee skills on the scum of Grant City.
  • Teeth-to-Bone: Take control of Shadow the dog at any time and bring down criminals with stealth as you slip through areas unnoticed and go where Jack cannot.
  • Bullet Time: Slow down time and take out enemies with ease as you make use of Jack's gun fu powers and line-up the perfect shot every time.
  • Cover Me: New cover system lets you take aim at your leisure or just blind-fire at enemies to distract them long enough for Shadow to get his teeth in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stop moaning... it's a great blast..!! 9 Jun. 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to say, I don't know what people are complaining about this game for; it really is a great fun, no brainer, don't take it too seriously blast 'em up.

People have slated it for cheesy dialogue and corny gameplay. Rubbish..!! It's not meant to be taken to seriously. The main protaganist; Jack Slate, is way too hard for his own good. His melee skills are brilliant and he can pretty much "chin" anyone in the game. I love his counter moves where you grab the other guy's gun and then shoot him in the head. The parts with Shadow too are great. It adds a bit of variety to the game and it's a hoot to boot.

Ok, so the game isn't likely to win Game of the Year, but nor is it trying to. It's just a bit of fun, blowing away bad guys and scrapping your way through. It's like a game equivalent of a Steven Seagal film; it's not going to win an Oscar, but you can't help but love it.

So basically, don't be put off thinking that this is going to be a bad game. It isn't a bad game at all, it's a good game. If you just want to blow away bad guys and feel like an action hero, then go give it a go.

This is the ideal game for the more casual gamer. Those hardcore gamers who like to play RPGs and want serious depth from their games probably won't be satisfied, but if your like me and just want bullets, blood and action, then it's absolutely great..!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The resurrected dead 12 Nov. 2010
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I figured that the Dead to Rights franchise was DOA. The last console game was released back in 2005, which is a lifetime in the video game world. When this new installment was announced it went straight on my wishlist. While it's a great game, it's a shame it seems to have been overlooked.

As before you play the role of hardcore cop Jack Slate, investigating the death of his dad (hang on, isn't that the plot of the first game?) along with faithful dog Shadow (a nice little reference to Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi. Through 10 action-packed chapters you'll explore every corner of the noir-ish, decaying Grant City from the highest of skyscrapers to the dingiest of back alleys. In the snow, in the cold, in the dark...this game is nothing if not atmospheric. It immerses you in the noir, backed up by Slate's gravelly narration.

A before, the gameplay is a mix of run-and-gun, hand-to-hand combat and slight puzzle-solving. There are some great ways to kill bad guys but my favorite is chucking them off high buildings and watching them disappear into then night sky. Watching bodies scatter in slow motion after a perfectly-timed explosion is also a lot of fun.

The DLC available from the PlayStation Network is great too and provides even more action, but I just wish there could have been more it, even if it was something as small as new costumes for Jack and Shadow, one new outfit just ain't enough.

I'd love to see the Dead to Rights series continue. It's gotten off to a great start on the next-gen consoles. This game is well worth your time, money and effort, and is a huge step up from the original from 2002.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic little gem 25 April 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played both previous games in the trilogy I approached this game with both pessimism and optimism. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this game is a gem.

You will be glad to know that Dead to Rights Retribution is a re-boot of the franchise. Due to the poor reception of the second game the developers have for obvious reasons decided to take the story back to its roots and start over taking full advantage of the next generation hardware. Gone are the throwing of canisters and fire extinguishers in order to create explosions, gone are convoluted plots. Gone are the messy camera angles and in its place is full on gunplay, fisticuffs, greater interactivity between Jack Slate and his Dog Shadow and a great deal more playability for the title as a whole.

It's obvious that the developers spent a great attention to detail and it shows. The levels are well designed and the storyline is well paced. You never find yourself out of your depth but always feel like you are up against the odds. Jack Slate is nicely detailed and credit to the developers for first-rate cinematics and making sure that the scenarios he faces equate to a game that plays out like a first rate action movie. There is always a fire fight, people are always being taken hostage, there is always something happening. Yet it never gets repetitive, you never have to re-tread old ground.

It is fiendishly hard to explain the game without giving too much of the story away but you play the part of Jack Slate.
