I've been playing this since last Wednesday, and it's easily an 8/10 for me so far, and the fact that it has 5 unlockable Avatar awards is a sweet little bonus!

Just finished the story and I'd give it a 7/10 because I liked the overall idea of the game but after some time it got boring.

I would say about 7... maybe 7.5. I'm really enjoying it but I would like a few more of Shadows stealth missions, or maybe even a few stealth missions that required both Jack AND Shadow... Now that would've been cool.

Seriously,over halfway through now and it's nothing above a 5. On Detective difficulty, it's a fucking 1. Things I dislike :-

1 - The cover system is THE worst I've ever known in a game bar none. You might as well not bother using it for all the good it does you. The fact 3 bullets can destroy a concrete block also lends little in it's favour.

2 - Just like Just Cause 2, this is a game with a heavy emphasis on shooting but a zero emphasis on actually giving you any fucking bullets in your gun. You are thus forced to constantly switch weapons and scrounge for every last bullet top up you can find.

3 - Enemies can bullet sponge like nothing. Sometimes, and granted, this isn't all the time, you can headshot with a shotgun to the face and they still keep coming. It takes a full machine gun clip to the chest to even slow a lowly peon down. Maybe this is an Detective difficulty thing only but it's still annoying.

4 - Glitches. Oh boy this game has it's share. Getting shot through walls and spawning with enemies shooting you in the face are my two favs. Falling through the floor and not being able to interact with switches are 2 other reported ones.

5 - Checkpoints or lack therof. Seriously, I think I've encounted like 10 checkpoints the whole game so far. I'm not saying I want one every 2 seconds but the game really could do with throwing you a bone and giving a couple more per level. It's infuriating having to redo entire sections due to crappy checkpoints.

6 - The combat. Shooting is nothing more than average and sometimes downright poor. The melee combat needs to have a word with Arkham Asylum but actually listen to what it's saying this time as it really is trying so hard to emulate but failing miserably. It's just totally clumsy in amidst the million flying bullets and the takedowns get old after the first level.

Those are my main peeves. They really are making my Detective playthrough an even bigger nightmare than it already is and are slowly making me hate the game. It's just not up to the standard I've come to expect from a game these days. Seriously, check out 50 Cent as a good example of how to do this genre of game (that game really surprised me).

I will sign off though by saying I do like Shadow a lot and his stealth sections are a welcome relief from the mediocre shooting / melee furore. These are only my opinions so please don't see this as anything more.

EDIT :- I meant to be saying Detective difficulty, not Officer. Edited accordingly.

I didn't think the section you are mentioning was very difficult. Just make sure to pick up the sniper rifles lying near the bombs you have to defuse. They come in very handy when dealing with a lot of enemies. Just run to one of the bombs, take out the enemy who guards it, defuse the bomb and take out the sniper on the opposite end of the room with your rifle. Then run across the hall, kill the guard and so on...

yer i really don't like the amount of ammo you can max out on its stupid, its like they are forcing you to find weps around or force you into melee slugfests and with alot of foes this wont work. like on the boxing ring part near the end they are all melee heavy ran out of ammo and took ages to killum in melee.

i was iffy on this game, and i was right to doubt it, but slow month for games so i took a chance, this is a rental get the points and shelf it. give it a 6 personally story was semi decent combat was semi decent but it lack of ammo as stated above kills the game for me, shadow parts were by far the best. the dog ai trying to keep him alive is however also rotten.

It's VERY bloody difficult till you figure out there are sniper rifles lying around. Seriously, tell me how long you last without using them. Yep, 12 seconds is about the best you'll muster. Using the rifles, it's a piece of piss. It's knowing they are there that's the key.

After hearing the 1st couple comments and the fact that I loved the 1st, not so much the 2nd. I think I will most definitely be giving this 1 a try, see ya soon Jack Slade.

This game gets an 7 out of 10 for me, definitely worth renting although there are some notorius glitches in this game. The best thing in the game is how the wee dog rips the guys bollocks off.

Its always worth renting games to test them out. I'm sure this will drop in price fairly quickly

I'm not sure if we are even playing the same game. I think this game is pretty awesome, I'd probably give it an 8.5 out of 10 which is amazing considering that I did not have very high expectations for this game. I love the hand to hand combat, compared to most shooting games that have melee thrown in, this one does melee very well I think.

I haven't experienced any of the problems that ponypo2001 has been having other than #2. I've heard about this game being glitchy but I seriously haven't seen one glitch the entire time I've been playing this game and I have 43 out of 50 achievements for it. Overall, DTR:Retribution is way better than I expected it to be and I've been having fun with it the entire time I've been playing it.

I have to buy it. I still play the original. But the above comments make me wary.

I'd give it a 6 so far, the ammo thing is really pissing me off, only reason what it get's an everage score from me is solely cos of the parts that you play as Shadow in

3/10

I was playing on cadet because i didnt want to 1k it *i ended up doing it though =\, thanks to a glitch XD i beat the last level on dect and it gave me the achievement + the all golds + silvers... so im not complaining*

as far as playing, a lot of the aspects are nice, but most things are totally trivial, like focus mode which just slows down the game =\ I never used it once, and i think im better off for it... Same with the lack of ammo... Just dont waste the time!

If you enjoyed the previous Dead to Rights games, you'll definitely enjoy this one.

6/10 for me. Nothing but a rental. Horribly cliche story(To be fair, what story can be totally unique across time), horrible mechanics, not enough ammo, the enemies get ridiculous near end(You use up all your ammo on a few and more keep coming), I hate how fake the characters look(Like Gears). The only parts I really liked were the Shadow parts. If you want to add another 1000, this is a good game for it. All I have left is to beat Urban Renewal and get gold(I can't get it for shit) and I've only had the game for two days. So glad I rented.

I played the first one on the original Xbox and enjoyed it also. I give the game a 8/10. The game is set up to where you don't get a lot of ammo so you have to use your fighting skills and use your dog as a weapon to help you get thru the levels.... The game is short so unless you are a fan or collector I would just rent it for a few days.... Don't just run and gun and it is an easy 1000/1000.
