The Law with a Few Guns

Happy New Year, readers! I know, I know, it’s a little late for that but I’ve been busy recently with voice over training and work, aside from gaming.

Most recently, I’ve acquired an old FPS by Rebellion from 2003 titled Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death. I’ve seen mixed reviews on it from Steam, but hey, it was on sale due to Rebellion publisher weekend, so I decided to take a look. It’s an enjoyable experience overall, but the game does have its glaring bugs (such as a less-than-stellar AI in both enemies and NPC Judges). I do, however, wish that there be a reboot of the game, since a shooter set in the 2000AD universe sounds awesome, especially since the game employs an arrest system that raises or lowers your justice meter; the higher the score, the more points you get at the end of a level.

The Lawgiver has been done pretty well, too. You have standard ammo (which is the gun’s in-universe Rapid Fire setting by default), high-ex, ricochet, incendiary, armor piercing, and heat seeking, although I wonder why they didn’t call it Hot Shot, like in the comics. The ammo types are nice but the most useful one I’ve found is armor piercing. This is only a quick update, not an official review, since I haven’t quite reached the end of the game yet. It currently can be found for the small price of $1.98 on Steam this weekend during the Rebellion publisher sale
