Have a read through the press relese and make your own assumption on what you think.  Does JACK SLACK have what it takes to turn heads or will it end up another bargain bin title.

CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE – 29 March 2010 –NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S.., announced today that Dead to Rights™: Retribution has gone gold for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. A reimagining of the multi-million unit selling crime-action series, Dead to Rights: Retribution puts players in control of two playable characters, vice cop Jack Slate and his canine companion Shadow, as they fight to uncover a conspiracy that threatens to destroy Grant City. Deadly on their own, Jack and Shadow are even more formidable as they team up in this no-holds-barred neo-noir journey.

Gameplay in Dead to Rights: Retribution is brutal and relentless, with a seamless combat system that allows players to fluidly transition between third-person shooting, hand-to-hand combat and AI partner control. Jack has a myriad of tools available to him that can be used in any combination, offering a wide variety of choice in how he can dispatch enemies in any combat situation. Players will also have the ability to play as a ferocious canine, Shadow. At various points in the story, the gameplay switches up as players take control of Shadow, interjecting a completely different style of combat than Jack’s. Shadow utilizes his heightened senses to stalk enemies with his stealth abilities and tears enemies apart with his visceral attacks.

Developed by Volatile Games, Dead to Rights: Retribution will be available on the 23rd of April. For more information, please visit or

    I thought the original Dead to Rights sucked too, got less than an hour into it. Maybe it will be good this time…They could have picked a better name for the dog though, I think that’s the name used for dogs in every game ever.

    Lol…i finished the first one on PSP in like…6 hours…on hard. And it wasn’t that good. I don’t get it, why do they release lost franchises? Get over them and create some new games ffs!

    I hate this series too, it just an big example of boring ideas and gameplay, with just nothing worth talking about. I can’t understand how they keep getting sequels for those games, well, must have some public after all.

  • versapak

    I thought the original was pretty mediocre, and being that I have heard next to nothing about this one, and it comes out this month…

    I expect it will again be mediocre at best.
