If you like FPS games and Judge Dredd and know how to not take things too seriously, this is a good game. Personally, I love FPS games and Judge Dredd, so I had a blast playing through the campaign. I'm not a nitpick every little detail Dredd fan, but I've got a couple of the "Case Files" books full of early Dredd comics and some other Dredd comics, so I know about Dredd and the world he comes from.
Looks wise, it won't win any awards, not even by 2005 standards. It's not photo realistic, nor do I think it's intended to be. Since it's based on the comics, I think they were going for a comic look and they succeeded. Still, it's not an ugly game. It's got decent graphics and the recreation of Mega City One is pretty fantastic. Plus, since it is from 2005, I'm able to play on nearly max settings and it looks really good on those settings. The only thing I wasn't able to max was the AA (anti aliasing) because 8X won't work on my system, for some reason. But, I got it working at 4X AA.
Plot wise, it's pretty simple. Obviously, you play as Judge Dredd, the super cop, prosecutor, judge, jury and, if necessary, executioner of the future. The story is simple, Judge Death and the other Dark Judges have escaped (again) and it's up to Dredd to hunt them all down. The campaign takes you all over MC1 and even into the under city, old New York and to the Deadworld, home of the Dark Judges. You fight street thugs, zombies, vampires, cultists and, of course, the Dark Judges themselves. Mostly, it's run and gun, with fast paced action and levels. I don't think any level took more than 30 minutes, the shortest was less than 10 minutes. I have 7.2 hours in the game, but not all of that is in the campaign. I've also played Arcade Mode some. The array of weapons is nice. Of course, you have the standard Justice Department sidearm, the Lawgiver, with its variety of ammunition. You can also pick up secondary weapons. There are other pistols, rifles, shotguns, machine guns, grenade launchers and even laser weapons. One of the most fun aspects of the game is the ability to arrest and sentence people. Some are enemies that surrender, others are people off the street that you sentence for whatever "crimes" they're committing. Loitering, parking violations, possession of a hamster or goldfish without a license, smoking, whatever. Also, if they talk back, you can add on 10-20 years for resisting arrest. In some levels, I had over 3,000 years total sentences given out. And, once the campaign is over, there's always Arcade Mode, which adds to the replayability.
The game does have a few issues, which is why not taking things too seriously is necessary to enjoy it. I understand there were some issues with development, so the campaign isn't what they were hoping it would be. Still, it's fun if you take it with a grain of salt. There are some AI bugs, like enemies that "fly away" after being shot. But, that stuff is actually pretty funny, in my opinion. None of it really makes the game unplayable, in my opinion. If all of this doesn't have you already pushing "Add to Cart," wait for it to go on sale if it isn't already. I got it on sale for a little over a dollar during the Black Friday sale, and it was money well spent. Still, I'd say it's worth the asking price, but that's just me.
