"This first-person shooter with this great license will offer gamers all the action, weapons and effects they crave with a unique comic-book style element at a great value price."
The game takes place in the futuristic 22nd century, where society is on the verge of anarchy and only a select group of elite "judges" can keep Mega-City One under control. Players take on the role of Judge Dredd, one of the city's top judges who vows to clean up the streets by any means necessary. But when a break-out at the city's penitentiary unleashes a group of evil judges onto the city streets, Judge Dredd's plans for stability take a deadly turn.
