Judge Dredd: Dredd Vs Death is one of the easiest recommendations I've ever made. I can't imagine anyone not taking some enjoyment from it, even if you're not particularly fond of FPSs. A little more finery would have gone a long way but as it is, graphical warts and all, you'll have fun impersonating Mr. Dredd, even if your mates don't feel the same way.
In short, Dredd vs. Death may not be the best first-person shooter on today's market, but it's still a fun diversion for fans of either the iconic comic book character or the shooter genre in general. Other genre entries could learn a thing or two from this game for multi-functional weapons and minimized load times. Conversely, though, there are no interactive vehicles on show, and the in-game arsenal isn't especially deep, nor is the combat, but it's all still fun and often zany. Dredd vs. Death is a veritable breath of fresh air when compared to the typical everyday melodramatic shooter. I had fun with it, but hey, you be the Judge.
Nach der PS2-Fassung war ich zunächst enttäuscht. Die Steuerung wollte mir nicht so recht gefallen, die Grafik sah unterdurchschnittlich aus und das Gameplay wirkte schlichtweg platt. Auf dem PC bekam der Titel eine zweite Chance und siehe da, ich fühlte mich schnell wie ein echter Judge. Hochauflösend wirkt die Grafik stilvoll, mit Maus und Tastatur ging die Steuerung gut von der Hand und im Team mit einem Freund machte die Verbrecherjagd gleich noch mal so viel Spaß. Rebellion hat sicherlich keinen Meilenstein geschaffen, wer aber auf düstere Science Fiction oder gar Judge Dredd steht, der findet mit Dredd vs. Death einen soliden Ego-Shooter sowie ein gelungenes Lizenz-Produkt.
Seuls les inconditionnels du comic book auront intérêt à se jeter sur cette adaptation GameCube qui se classe seulement parmi les FPS les plus moyens de la console. A oublier très vite.
Am Anfang macht der Titel durchaus ein bisschen Spaß. Doch dann offenbarten sich sehr schnell die vielen Mängel. Erhebliche Schwächen in der Technik und der Künstlichen Intelligenz sind vollkommen unverständlich. Wer gerne mit seinen Freunden spaßige Shooter-Runden am Abend veranstaltet, kann aber einen Blick riskieren.
Released in Europe in 2003, the game hasn't gotten a whole lot better with age. It's a short, simplistic shooter that's not worth even its budget price.
A budget shooter for the indiscriminate casual gamer, Dredd vs. Death offers little to fans of the FPS genre, especially considering the quality of its competitors. For those starved action gamers in need of an immediately accessible fix, there is still some strange sense of joy to be found in pointlessly gunning down the minions of evil in colorful environments.
