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
one of the better games of 2010 until you near the end. Then it follows the rules of all the reasons we dont buy games like we use to. These statics are usually reserved ffor those who have a short game. But that is not the case. So why put a lot of do overs in the game. When you get too "pestilence, you have tto kill crows before they eat your corn! Impossible and frustrating! When bounty hunting the outlaws gang converge on you super fas and are never ending! I must have killed 25 and on tthe way to cut off his hand (if that what you do} i was killed by a bear. One time I killed the bear and there were more of his gang after that! C'mon! Ridicculous.
Great grafics aand storyline. Targeting system needs work. it is a 9 but could have easily been a 10.
Whether you're playing the missions, side missions, free roaming, or playing online, this game got it right in all areas.
So much fun, I thought it might just be GTA with horses, but I was wrong! In my personal opinion this game actually blows GTA away, especially the online mode. A must rent, keep, buy, whatever just play it!
