I purchased this game when it came out and was a bit skeptical at first but after playing it for multiple hours i am convinced that it was a great buy with a great story and great dialogue if there was a better selection of weapons i would have given it a 10 but even with the ones it has this is so far the game of the year take note game designers this is how you do it!!!!! Go out and get your copy....
The multiplayer is super in this game, the free roam is kinda like online co-op but not really but feels like it.
I give the story a 6 because in the begining it was boring, but once you get father it will still make you intrested, but i felt it was a little....cheesy, but the ending was a tear jerker and a feeling making you want to puch a baby turtle.
other than the story feeling useless. The multiplayer is 9.5.
It's more than a worthy follow-up to the orig game. The first red dead was one of my favorite titles on the first gen x-box & i had high expectations when it came to what i wanted out of the sequel. Rockstar delivered big with this game. I would say this is their best game yet ( yes better than all the GTA's ). The campaign was long & there was a ton of ways to extend it with side missions, random crimes to stop ( if your feling heroic ), & strangers to assist. One of my favorite things about the game would be the landscape itself , it really feels like you jump into the old west through this game. On the multiplayer side of things , free roam mode is a blast. it's basicly a lobby type setup where you can posse up and do missions , jump straight into a competitive match ( shootout,capture the bag,ect. ), or just run around by yourself picking fights & playing poker. So to sum up , go put this game in your Q . Its the goodness
