Dead to Right's: Retribution

Plenty of games let players to shoot, or brutally maul an enemy with their fists, but how many allow them to eviscerate a foe with a dog? And not just any dog at that, a dog with a ruthless skillset more grim than any dog before it. Only a few come to mind, but none of them compare to the viciousness of Volatile’s Dead to Rights: Retribution. Jack Slate has been brought back along with his half malamute - half wolf counterpart; Shadow. While Dead to Rights may be a franchise that many never expected to see resurface, it has been done. How successful this reinvention will be is yet to be determined, but so far it’s looking to be a vast improvement on the 2002 release which was complainingly referred to as looking too dated, and having poor cameras.

Film noir inspired with a modern edgy twist, Dead to Rights: Retribution offers a vice cop drama filled with betrayal, conspiracy, and a fight to restore a once great city. Play as Jack Slate, or his partner Shadow through the underbelly of Grant City, bringing justice, and leaving piles of bodies in their wake. Jack is military trained, and a boxer in his spare time, making him ready to tackle anybody or anything that stands in his path. Both Jack and Shadow share the attributes of being rugged, charismatic and primal, making them the perfect lethal team.

Great characters need to be backed by strong art concepts, and the stylized gritty, over-the-top animations work well. While stylized, Dead to Rights offers realism that is pushed beyond anything that’s fathomable. By being generated through motion capturing, and touched up via hand key animation, Jack Slate and Shadow perform over-exaggerated, yet realistic attacks. In other words, they took the awesome parts of kicks and punches, extended, over emphasised, and made them a little beyond realistic. Grant City is dark and gritty, much like Gotham City, offering tons of attitude and violence. Pair the look of Grant City with the bold and bombastic musical themes, and what’s created is a seriously badass city.

While the look and sound is great, praise has to be given to the gameplay, as it is by far the most important aspect of any game. Dead to Rights offers a long list of mechanics, making it seem almost overly opportunistic, and maybe a little too good to be true. A working destructible cover system is in operation, there are various weapons and a hand-to-hand 360 degree combat system. Ranged attacks are also in there too, alongside a guard dog for stealth manoeuvres, distractions, and mob control. It seems like it could get rather overwhelming, but Volatile have promised it will be a unique seamless experience. A pinch may be necessary to regain focus at this point. If these tools actually do work well together, and shifting between shooting, hand-to-hand, and the dog AI controls are that well blended, then Volatile will have something special on their hands. So many options offer varied play styles, and as a result the opportunity to experience different play-throughs which will be refreshing compared to other third-person shooters. However, how well this will work, and if the mechanics will be balanced enough to even consider using all of them is yet to be determined.

Two mechanics that are particularly interesting are the blended shooting-hand-to hand combat, and of course the dog. Having the option to fight with a gun or hands is great, but when dealing with 360 degree combat the prospect of being overwhelmed by foes, and bludgeoned to death is a realistic threat. Hopefully with the ability to disarm, attack in multiple directions, and use enemies as human meat shields this will be lessened. There would be nothing more frustrating than being surrounded by foes and being able to do very little about it. Shadow, the dog, is most likely a major highlight of Dead to Rights: Retribution. From being able to play as Shadow, and do stealth takedowns, to being able to direct shadow to pin down and control an enemy when things get crowded, this dog looks awesome. Hopefully he is more than just an appealing aesthetic and is as useful as he has been played up to be.

From gritty take-down combos, to playing as a dog, Dead to Rights: Retribution offers a lot of unique and horrifying ways to kill a man. If using an enemy as a human shield, and beating them back into submission as they regain consciousness while trying to cross a firing squad seems appealing, be sure to check this title out. While it’s not completely certain how well implemented all the varied tools Jack Slate has in his arsenal will be, the story and violence will be more than entertaining.

Dead to Rights: Retribution releases on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 the 27th of April, 2010 in Europe.

bice sranje kao i jedno tri pre ove…

Svako ima svoj ukus :slight_smile:

daleko od toga… ja sam samo izrazio svoje misljenje. :slight_smile:

Citao sam bas dosta o igri i stavili bas neka “Marshall Arts’” koliko sam ja dobro upucen a koliko sam i video izgleda cooloijana 8)

Aki sta mu znaci kad pise da je igra GOTY “” ?;d

GOTY ti je skraceno od GOTYVNO (Y menja I jer je cool), a to znaci da je igra super. :beer:

znaci LOL


Hvala na obavestenju Just


Kakave veze ima GOTY sa ovom igrom ? Wait a second,mozda je mislio FOTY.:smiley:

samo sam pitao jer izbaio lik na Warezzu kao GOTY FABLE 2 full …

to je fable 2 Game of the year edition a to je u stvari klasicni Fable 2 ali imas sve DLC dodatke koji su izasli

Ako imate kuci klasicne crveno plave 3D naocare, preporucujem da skinete Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY. Igra sadrzi sve challenge modove koje su izdali kao DLC plus ima opcija za 3D mod. I izgleda skroz dobro. Samo malo bole oci…

Meh opravdao sam moje misljenje, barem za sebe. Igra nije nista posebno 6/10. Ali evo ovo je prva igra, barem na kojoj sam ja video da se dobijaju avatar awards.

Igrao sam 7/10 po meni,zabava dok se ceka Alan i Red dead :slight_smile:

Ja imam neke naocare, ali mislim da ce mi iskociti oci, jer im je kvalitet nula.
Neki sam kupio film za 250 din. Pa razumete sta hocu da kazem. :slight_smile:

Skroz offtopic:
El ima neko ideju gde mogu da se kupe 3D naocare???
Evo skidam Dead to rights Retribution,igra mi izgleda solidno.
Prvi put kad sam video gameplay videos izgledalo mi je extra,sada nakon sto sam se zarazio sa Splinter cell conviction izgubio sam malo interes sa RDR ali ipak mi se igra jer ima interesantan koncept i dizajn.
A i imacu jos nesto dok ne izadje, red dead redemption…ili Alan wake…Ili lost planet 2…ILI CAK ALPHA PROTOCAL…Pa ljudi gde je meni vreme i pare???
Ovo je wave of awesomness…

Jel misiš na anaglyph 3D naočare (one crvenoplave) ili stereoscop? Ove stereoskopske su skuplje dok su ove anaglyph još 50tih izmišljene i jeftinije. U svakom slučaju javi mi se na PM.
