GameDaily writes: "Dead to Rights is a franchise that just won't die. After publishing abysmal games on multiple platforms, Namco's at it again with the aptly titled Dead to Rights: Retribution, a reboot of its ho-hum third person action series, now available on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It was the game we dreaded playing, thanks to eight-year old memories of outdated graphics and horrible gunplay. We certainly can't tell you that the publisher struck gold and delivered a triple A product, but we don't hate it, either. That counts for something."
