Dead to Rights: Retribution (Xbox 360)
YOU are vice cop Jack Slate and you're on a mission to clean up the city.
The problem is, nobody will help you apart from your dog!
And - quite literally - it is just you and Shadow tasked with cleaning up the streets and fighting a conspiracy against you.
You get to control not only Jack but also his pooch and that adds a nice bit of variety to a solid, if somewhat formulaic, shooter/beat-em-up.
Your character is a martial arts expert as well as a keen marksman.
So, as you might expect, he knows how to handle himself, and you have plenty of criminals in your path to dispose of.
The controls are fairly standard but nice and responsive and it's a blast to hammer away at the scumbags on the streets.
It's an all-guns-blazing button masher with some great graphics and fun gameplay. It does have its limitations, though.
The storyline is a bit twee.
And whilst the controls are fun, there is a feeling of 'been here before' about it, a sense of dÃÂ©ja vu
But a decent game, make no mistake.
