Dead to Live
3 May 2003 | by ScreenwhispererSee all my reviews

Featuring the voices of: Chris Bruno, Patrick Dollaghan, Christopher Bay, Jeannie Elias, Greg Eagles, Jennifer Griffin, Granville Van Dusen, and John Di Crosta.

Jack Slate is K-9 cop in the hardest place on earth, Grant City. He is out one night, investigating a crime scene, and finds him father, Frank Slate, murdered. He investigates in a strip club if anyone had anything to do with it. He finds some thugs, but no leads. He follows a thug to an apartment, and is framed by an assassin.

Slate is in prison for seven months, and is put on death row. He hears that a few boys have planned to break out. Jack breaks out with them, and escapes from the sewers. He hunts after the triads, who are now the main leads. After a plane crashes, Jack, with the help of the TV Reporter, Waterman, and your dog, Shadow, pursue the person who really deserved to die.

With the same style as Max Payne had, Dead to Rights is a very entertaining game. Some features of this are even better than Max Payne(automatic aim, longer slow motion, etc). This game not only is good, but a good entry in comparision with other Action games.

7 out of 10. Format: Playstation 2.
