There are sixteen levels to Judge Dredd and with careful aiming they should all be complete within a few attempts. However the replay value provides continuous gameplay as you attempt to beat your best score. The two player mode is great fun as you can take a mate along and watch each others backs but beware as the lives are divided between the two of you so don't go grabbing all of the power-ups for yourself. All in all a competent arcade shooter that works well with both light gun and control pad.

Judge Dredd is not the type of game that I would purchase because I prefer to inject a little thought into playing video games rather than frantic trigger pulling in short bursts. If you love arcade games such as Time Crisis or Virtua Cop then go for this game as I doubt you will be disappointed with the content.

De toute façon, si vous n'avez pas de gun, arrêtez de lire. Ce n'est pas pour ce jeu que vous en achèterez un. Par contre, si vous voulez absolument un jeu pour votre flingue, celui-ci fera l'affaire un peu mieux que d'autres.

Judge Dredd is one of those games which showed early promise, but ultimately lacks the feel-good-factor of Time Crisis. Graphically it is incredibly primitive and the gameplay is bonejarringly repetitive. It’s on a par with Area 51, but as a Dredd licence, it is very poor.

Where Judge Dredd really fails is it's total lack of being fun. Levels are a chore at best, totally devoid of anything that resembles skill. In fact, we've found that the best way to beat a level is to just find all the hidden health. In many instances, the enemies are actually part of the streaming FMV. They look nice, but killing them is pure luck at best. It also looks really cheesy when the big boss simply dies after you haven't shot him for 10 seconds or so. Design decisions like this bring this game down from mediocrity to junk. Our advice is simple: stay away from this one at all costs-no matter how much you like the character.

My friend crowed the news of his victory in my face. He had walked into my room, found Judge Dredd, which he had never played before, and completed it within a half-hour. "Well", I thought, "there goes someone's fifty bucks." This game has some positive features, but, for the most part, it consists of a whole host of problems.

To all but a few comic book aficionados, the Judge Dredd name stands for a bad movie, a few bad video games, and a pretty decent pinball machine. And even though this latest offering from Activision is based on the Judge Dredd comic series rather than the Stallone magnum opus, it fits right in as just another bad video game. Even though most avid light-gun fans are probably starving for another game, this is one they'd be better off without.

Shooting games 'draw' on that nearly indescribable quality that dwells deep in the hearts of men. It's that pure desire to shoot everything that moves. In the arcades light-gun shooters found immense success because of their ease of 'pickupability' (a new word), and tease that you can pick off every target thrown your way. So, what better game to make than Judge Dredd, the shooter? Saddle a great, violent comic book hero with the urgent shooter, and boom, success. Well, no, not really.
