Ähnlich wie bei Kollege Mace Griffin hat Judge Dredd spielerisch nicht viel zu bieten, was ihn von der Genre-Konkurrenz abheben würde. Und das, was neu oder anders ist, wirkt entweder aufgesetzt oder nicht wirklich ausgereift. So stellen Verhaftungen, so amüsant sie anfangs auch sein mögen, später einfach nur noch eine eher lästige und oft riskante Pflichterfüllung dar, während der Wechsel zwischen den sechs unterschiedlichen Munitionstypen von Dredds Lawgiver alles andere als locker von der Hand geht. Auch KI und Schwierigkeitsgrad sind nicht besonders ausgewogen und vor nervigen Bugs ist man ebenfalls nicht gefeit. Kritik haben auch der wenig umfangreiche Story-Modus, das lineare Leveldesign sowie die schmucklose Optik verdient. Humor und Setting können jedenfalls überzeugen und die zahlreichen Mehrspieler-Modi sorgen dafür, dass so schnell keine Langeweile aufkommt.

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.

Judge Dredd scores a minor victory in its ability to let is roots show through amid the usual indistinguishable mess of guns and guts.

The level of detail and wealth of player-initiated options that went into judging criminals are both particularly impressive. Outside of this interesting play mechanic, the remainder of content can be summed up as a repetitious snoozefest that gives new meaning to generic FPS.

Trots detta är det här den bästa fusionen vi kan köpa för pengar, det bästa spelet hittills med Dredd i huvudrollen. Vad som känns intressant är att Rebellion köpt rättigheterna till samtliga titlar från 2000 AD: Strontium Dog, Rogue Trooper, Halo Jones, ABC Warriors, Nemesis the Warlock, Sláine, RoboHunter med flera. Jag vill mig se början på en ny era för brittiska serier som blir spel. Det kan bara bli bättre.

Ultimately, Dredd vs Death fulfils both hopes and fears in equal measure. It oozes character from every pore, yet bends rather than breaks the steadfast conventions of the FPS. For this reason, a partiality towards the Dredd franchise is not just a recommendation, but a practical requirement when playing the game. If the primary concern was whether Rebellion would stay faithful to the series, it must be karmic retribution that they’ve done it with such enthusiasm that the game itself has been compromised. Like the comic, Dredd vs Death was always set to be a game by the fans, for the fans; accordingly, only they can truly be the judge of its success.

There isn’t any middle ground when it comes to Judge Dredd: Dredd Versus Death. As far as an action title goes, it leaves much to be desired. Even for gamers looking for a shooter fix, there are better options already on the market. Awkward gameplay mechanics, sub par graphics, and bland audio keep this game from reaching any sort of potential. Hardcore Dredd fans will no doubt wanna check this title out, but it adds nothing new to the series. Instead of standing out amongst the pack, Dredd feels like it wants to be a little bit of Deus Ex, Halo, and Riddick rolled into one, while not succeeding at any of them.

Seuls les inconditionnels du comic book auront intérêt à se jeter sur cette adaptation Xbox qui se classe seulement parmi les FPS les plus moyens de la console. A oublier très vite.

As far as budget games go, Judge Dredd is standard fare. It's not embarrassingly bad, but you're better off waiting for your next paycheck (or maybe getting a payday loan) and then sinking the extra cash into any of the much better full-priced shooters readily available on all four platforms.

Dredd vs. Death emerges as no Halo 2 buster, nor is it even comparable to the original Halo. The truth here is this: the game should have been released two years ago as it was meant to. Hardcore comic fans might love the game, but for a casual gamer, it's an average offering in an already overcrowded genre. Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death is a decent game, with a few obvious flaws that can be overlooked if you're looking for another FPS to play and are tired of the standard Halo hype.

Fans of the fiction will finally appreciate a style that keeps the faith, but will wonder how this game could have done its source material the same sort of disservice the decade old movie did.

Skulle man ta bort faktumet att man spelar som Judge Dredd i hans fantastiska värld, hade detta varit en ytterst medioker förstapersonsskjutare. Tack vare den trots allt gedigna grundstommen med miljöer, fiender och framför allt hjältar undviker spelet ren kollaps. Djupt besviken får jag konstatera att spelet inte ens lär roa de mest fanatiska Dredd-fansen, oavsett hur elak Dredd låter när han väser fram: "I am the law". Tyvärr.

Below average, nothing that good really stands out, the part ofthis game that I really did not like was the fact that you couldn'tsave at all, if you had to leave for any reason and didn't finish yourlevel, to bad, when you come back to it your starting over. Bottom lineis if your really bored one night and just want to shoot things withyour Xbox what the hell go ahead and rent it, or better yet rent a goodWWII simulation, but I wouldn't recommend buying it after all there’sno law that says you have to.
