Like most of the games early on this list, I rented them from Blockbuster and the only reason why I rented them was because I had loved the counterpart or a similar type game on my PS2. I was still getting used to my PS3 and still hadn’t found that game that made me fall in love with my PS3 yet. I was still going back and forth and trying new games and trying to relive some old PS2 memories. This game was one of those trying to relive some of my PS2 memories because I loved the first Dead to Rights game and was excited for the PS3 edition. But you know the deal, if it’s on this blog it means that I never finished it.
While I could tell you the whole plot of the first game, I have no idea what this game was about. Absolutely none. To be honest with you, I don’t even remember playing this game for all that long. I think I barely made it through the first stage and just called it quits.
It was Drakulus, who writes an awesome blog and you should check it out by the way by clicking here, who said to me a few weeks ago that sometimes games we enjoy as kids are worse as adults, and he has a point. I loved Dead to Rights when I was younger. Playing Dead to Rights: Retribution when I was older though, was just eh. Some games are timeless and some are just meant to be memories of a different time. This was one of those games. While I won’t take away what Dead to Rights was to me on my PS2, I’m going to try and forget about this forgettable game that I can’t even remember the main story line to.
As you can tell from my pathetic picture above I was only able to get 4 of the 51 base trophies for this game. I say base trophies because guess what, there are an extra 10 DLC trophies to go along with this game. All 4 of my trophies are for random things and are missing timestamps because I still thought it was totally uncool to hook your PS3 up to the internet because that trend was just never going to catch on.
Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.
No surprise there right? My lack of memory of this game and my lack of overall interest in this game has left me with no interest to ever revisit this game. Ever. This will just be one of those games on my list that never gets complete and hopefully gets so far down on my list of games on my trophy card that I don’t even have to look at it unless I scroll all the way the hell down.
Now it’s your turn. Ever played this game? Ever finished this game? Have the platinum for this game? Hated this game? Love this game? Let me know in the comments section below! Now for next week, another game from Blockbuster because they didn’t go out of business yet and I had nothing better to do than run down to the local blockbuster and grab game after game. Being unemployed for a long period of time does that to you. Next week I’ll let you know why I never finished UFC Undisputed 2010 because you know how much I loved the other UFC games that were featured in this blog series.
