Game Vortex writes: "Maybe these games are coming out of a time warp, but at least Righteous Kill looks a little better than another Merscom game that I just played (Time Stand Still). The graphics look a little more hand drawn this time, instead of photos that have had a quick filter passed over them. Characters seem to be real life photos, however, but they've been altered enough to fit in with the background. For some reason, the animated scenes are shown in a small format that is about half the size of the screen. It's probably just to save space in the game's total size, but again, what year is this? There was no way this game was approaching the monstrous sizes that people complain about in games today anyway."
