Evil Avatar writes: "Dead to Rights has been around for a while – in case you didn't know, they've already put out two games under the name. Both, and this shiny new sequel, follow the escapades of Jack Slate and his dog Shadow as they journey around Grant City busting chops as the ultimate cop team. The series has faired reasonably well in both sales and critical reception but I don't think it struck anybody as a game that needed to be expanded upon. Never-the-less, Volatile Games and Namco (not Namco Bandai, oddly) have taken everything about the originals and updated them considerably. They almost made a brilliant game out of it."
