The only one of these games I played was Dredd vs Death. It was a lot of fun but I didn't fully understand what Death's master plan was.

Well, from my limited knowledge, it's to exterminate all life, because all crimes happened to be conducted by the living.

I know the extermination of life is his ultimate goal as "the crime is life" and all that, but I'm not quite sure how he plans to do it in the game. According to him he plans to wipe out all life on earth by using Anderson and about three other psychics to create a rift between earth and deadworld to merge them together. I'm not quite sure how that will exterminate life on our world, seems to me like he will essentially repopulate his own world again unless that's his plan, maybe hes feeling a bit nostalgic about killing on his own world or something. Actually that makes a kind of sense, the Dark Judges are known for taking their time with their genocidal goals and reveling in every step of the way.

I own Dredd Versus Death on the Gamecube; it's pretty good. It leans a little too hard on fighting zombies and vampires instead of fighting good old fashioned perps, but it's an enjoyable enough game. It lets you switch between all six forms of Lawgiver ammo, even though the Ricochet and Heat Seeker rounds are bloody useless. It also has arcade missions where you  play as other characters; one of which you're a guy in a block war.

Just about every citizen you meet can be arrested; usually it's for loitering or possession of a goldfish/hamster without a license. :XD:

I just saw a gameplay video - www.youtube.com/watch?v=6f0C0n…

a fatty saying "I bet you're just dying to frisk me" HILARIOUS!

But also is quite morally confused - arresting everyone for everything? Almost against the Judges.

Arresting a person for having a goldfish without a licence? xDDD

re: the zombies... probably because of the same reason they had to repackage Carmageddon - originally, it had you running over people in your car, but then the people were changed to zombies after some people complained.

Glad it's a good game. :)

I don't think the zombies are for political correctness. The Psy-Judges predict a massive plague at the same time zombies and vampires begin appearing throughout the city. At the same time, the Dark Judges escape, and Dredd thinks the two might be connected. The zombies and vampires are the result of a doctor who was able to bring pets back to life, but was only doing this research because he wanted to be immortal. At the end of the game Judge Death steals the doctor's immortal body to (try to) make himself invincible. The zombies are too deeply woven into the game for it to be political correctness.

The game has a law meter; arresting perps and completing objectives raises the law meter; shooting unarmed civilians, surrendering perps, or other Judges decreases the meter. If the meter gets empty, not only do you fail the mission but a squad of Judges hunts you down. (You can then fight them if you feel like digging yourself a deeper hole in the justice department). The game also has a co-op mode and my friend Ben found out the hard way that friendly fire decreases the Law Meter too.

If a perp doesn't feel like surrendering you can coax  him into giving up by shooting him in the gut (or using Stumm grenades if you want to be safe); if you punch a normal perp, it's a one-hit-kill. In other words: Dredd is f$%king strong!

The game has a lot of good jokes. Probably my favorite is the hospital level where you fight Judge Mortis; you hear over the PA "we advise terminal patients to remain in their beds. I mean honestly; what's the point?" And one of the more subtle jokes: you fight Judge Fire in the Smokatorium (the only legal place to smoke cigarettes).

I see, so with the law meter, killing regular people is discouraged. Phew!

Thanks very much for all the detail. :) It does sound like a more in-depth game than the video I'd seen at first!

You're welcome.

The Law Meter doesn't always come into play though- since a lot of levels have you fighting zombies and vampires with few civilians around- but if you want high rankings and unlockables you have to put concentrated effort into taking perps alive.

So you really are meant to arrest everyone for loitering or owning a hamster without a licence?
Reply
:icondarklordjadow:
DarkLordJadow Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2014
No; it goes by combined sentence time at the end of the level and loiterers and hamster owners are only worth 30 days apiece. People who assault judges get life, so you have to try and take them alive while the petty crimes really don't do squat.

There are also homeless people you can arrest for vagrancy, but they don't go quietly unless you use Stumm Gas and the instruction booklet straight-up tells you not to waste the resources.

That's interesting the game wants you to arrest those who assault judges, because I thought the penalty was death for that!

I remember that C64 game - it was pretty horrible ... then again 90% of games back then were like that. ... atleast licence games.

Also addition to videogames there was atleast this wonderful Pinball: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKUr8Q…

We need more games, but I'm afraid that POLITICAL CORRECTNESS is in the way. People are so sensitive nowadays and Dredd isn't quite the guy to do things using flowers and kind words.

If I EVER get any serious money, I'll invest it in making a proper Dredd game :)

Now you got me dreaming of open world Grand Theft Auto style game, where you as a Judge (Dredd or not) go around Megacity solving crimes. Also they could later sell Cursed Earth DLC :)

I think there are GTA IV mods ... Judge Dredd mod could be a hefty amount of work for some idle hands :)

Well, at least I'll have something to do when I get filthy rich and retire :)

Joking aside, it wouldn't be a bad idea to start a web site dedicated to that and gather a community of modders. I'd wait for GTA5 tho, as GTA IV is a bit long in the tooth and engine is not quite the wonder of optimization. :)

Very true, although the violence and drokking in it doesn't seem worse than some video games. I mean, thinking back to GTA 4, bashing a prostitute to death then taking her money was an option? Dredd wouldn't do that! I think the comics are more under fire for political correctness, since there's more text/indepth story. A video game would be more simplified, I think?

I agree with you 100%, but you know how it is - Dredd got some bad rep early due to "excessive violence" and now he's a bad boy of comics - pretty much similar to Punisher (another one of my faves! :) ). Now, nobody wants to touch it with a ten foot stick.

Honestly, I don't mind - Dredd isn't for everyone, especially weak minded pu***es. ;)

:giggle: Well, profits override ethics, ironically (ironic compared to the Dredd universe).. so... if there's a sequel to Dredd 2012, hopefully it will make a profit, then another game would be more likely. ^^
