Red Dead Redemption
I was a bit skeptical when I heard about a GTA themed western game but when I played it oh did it work. The game was amazing, the story and plot development was amazing. Everything was. The ending made me feel a bit sad though which means that the story connected to me on a deeper level. To the people who thought up this one if you ever read this you are amazing.
Instant all time classic!
First of all I love westerns! The genre invokes fantasies of riding the range either as a desperado or a lawman bringing them to justice! I am not a big fan of the GTA games because of the sense of being outside of the law and playing a gangster. This game gives you a choice and you feel it in the honor and fame points. What I really love is that you can follow the main story line, do side quests or just roam the countryside doing as you please. This truly is an open world game unlike a lot of console games that may boast open world - they simply are not. This game delivers the goods and in spades! It was hard to tell whether I was watching a western movie or playing the game - the visuals are just that great! The only difficulty I have found is finding what you just shot in the heavy brush -- very realistic. Give this game a shot if you are looking for a western type RPG that has a good story and lots of open ended potential!
Rockstar has been consistent with their releases, and them being good. Red Dead Redemption is by far better than GTA IV, by a long shot! I was a fan of the GTA Series till IV took a few steps backwards from the acclaimed San Andreas.
This game takes place in the wild west, and may not be entertainment for everyone, but this game has a lot to offer. From a huge map, to upgrades for guns, hunting, side missions, a good story line, great DLC, card games (poker and a few others), Duels (my favorite!) the list can go on and on. I have around 30hrs into this game and from what a friend tells me, I am only about half way through.
That is a game! The graphics are just as clean as GTA IV maybe a bit cleaner, gameplay is solid, multiplayer is available for deathmatch, co-op and such. For the price it is totally worth it! It will deliver hours of gameplay and entertainment! I recommend this to anyone who wants a game that they cannot beat in 20 or less hours, a good story line, and likes the free-roam style open map, open gameplay style!
BEST GAME EVER
After playing this game for a while, I have finally beat it. This game never got old and by the end of it you wish there was more. If you are debating whether or not to buy this game, I can reassure you, this will be the best game you'll ever play.
one of my favorite games.
I love this game. it is long enough, and the story is amazing. I loved every single dital of the game.
Great overall lasting game
Let me start off by saying i regret not buying this game when it first game out. When it first came out i decided not to buy it and just wait a few months until it was on sale. Huge mistake, the campaign is great it has lots of missions to keep your entertained. However after the campaign i found plenty of things to do ranging from animal hunting, treasure hunting, and achievement hunting. The graphics are great and i am currently playing in 480i. Multiplayer can be for harcore gamers or casual gamers because of its casual friendly and hardcore setting. I would give it 10/10 but the case tricks you by saying theirs local co-op their is not >:(
This is an amazing western game. I really love the fact that you a former outlaw it really ads to the story alot. This game also has pretty good graphics and you can really never seem to stop playing it even if your not an serious RPG fan.
Game of the Year by far!!!
Red Dead Redemption is a fantastic game. The story line is great and the so is your character John Marston. From the beginning to the end this game is awesome. In my opinion it is one of the best free roam games out there. When I first played the game I wondered how this game won Game Of the Year. After a while I realized how amazing this game really is. Overall if you want hours of fun, get this game.
A game that can define a generation
This game is stunning. The story is epic and the multi-player with friends is even better. This is by far one of my top 3 games of all time. This is a must play. I can replay this game over and over and I can play multi-player all day and all night. This could be the best game Rockstar has ever made. I give it 2 thumbs and two big toes up. If you haven't played this yet the shame on you! You must get this if you have been wondering if you should or not.
Let's get this over with right from the start: Red Dead Redemption is one of the best games ever made. Rockstar REALLY hit it out of the park with this one. The animation is fantastic, the story is entertaining, the diologue is witty and hilarious at times, and the characters are memorable. The year is 1911. John Marston, a former gang member sent from the town of Blackwater to Fort Mercer, a gang hideout near the town of Armadillo to kill his former partner, Bill Williamson. After Marston is shot and left for dead, he's rescued by Bonnie MacFarline who nurses him back to health on her ranch. When he's back to normal health, Marston sets off across Armadillo, Mexico, and eventually back to Blackwater in order to kill the three main men he used to ride with: Williamson, Javier Esquela and Dutch Vanderlin. One of the BEST Things about this game is the open world. It's absolutely MASSIVE, one of the largest I've ever played. It encompases both the US and Mexico. In traditional Rockstar fashion, there are some incredible side missions. On top of that, there's a ton of awesome minigames like poker, blackjack, and liars dice, as well as bounty hunter missions, which are insanely fun and easy -ish ways to make money. The unique unlockable outfits and weapons make a neat addition to the game. Overall, this game is absolutely AMAZING! And, one of my favorite Games of all time!!!! ANYONE who hasn't played this game is missing out. Just go buy it!
