Judge Dredd: Dredd Vs. Death - Reception

Reception

The game received mostly average reviews from critics. It currently has an average of 57% for the Xbox version, 56% for the GameCube version, 55% for the PC version, and 52% for the PlayStation 2 version. Some areas of complaints were weak A.I., lackluster graphics, overly bizarre character models, and simplistic gameplay. However, the game was praised for its multiplayer and arcade mode, which contains over a dozen maps and several playable characters and modes, similar to that of TimeSplitters 2. The arcade mode was also noted as being superior compared to the campaign (IGN said it 'adds some spice to an otherwise boiled and blanched game.'). IGN gave the game a 5/10 and concluded 'fans of the fiction will finally appreciate a style that keeps its faith, but will wonder how this game could have done its source material the same sort of disservice the decade old movie did', negatively comparing it to the 1995 Judge Dredd film. GameSpot was among the group of sites that complained about the game that did not completely trash it, but called it a 'short, simplistic shooter that's not worth even its budget price', concluding that 'it's not embarrassingly bad, but you're better off waiting for your next paycheck and then sinking in the extra cash into any of the much better full-priced shooters readily available on all four platforms'.

Famous quotes containing the word reception:

    Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody’s face but their own; which is the chief reason for that kind of reception it meets in the world, and that so very few are offended with it.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    I gave a speech in Omaha. After the speech I went to a reception elsewhere in town. A sweet old lady came up to me, put her gloved hand in mine, and said, “I hear you spoke here tonight.” “Oh, it was nothing,” I replied modestly. “Yes,” the little old lady nodded, “that’s what I heard.”
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    To aim to convert a man by miracles is a profanation of the soul. A true conversion, a true Christ, is now, as always, to be made by the reception of beautiful sentiments.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
