I am so glad i rented this game. I think its okay but not great. because in the trailer it says you unlock coustumes doing sharshooter challenges! Also they said you can do duels in any town. But only at specific towns and some times there aren,t any at all. The also said you,ll meet roadside burgerlers (wich i love to do!!!!) but there are barely any at all.! Also you can,t buy another 3 star horse after you get one. (trust me i even started the game over just for that.) So buy this game you,ll be bored after the 3 hour.

SNOREFEST IN THE WILD WEST!

I expected a great deal from this game, but was delivered another order of GTA's dated game play stationed in the Wild West. The graphics are quite amazing at 720p. Why was this game not released with full 1080p output? I expected a visceral experience, but was left with very little satisfaction. Though, I am sure reviewers will relish in the open world format. The game has a few revealing elements which quickly wear off after repeating them on a constant basis. Why the sheriffs’ are immediately made aware of your presence and crimes is part of the GTA genre? This takes away from the suspense of possibly being hunted down for a bounty. You would expect to view bounty signs being posted and hear rumors throughout the towns regarding your mischievous activities. I believe this game was severely overhyped before release while the coop story mode was omitted. In the end, you will enjoy this game if you enjoy the GTA series, otherwise steer clear.

Pros: Graphics, Musical Score/Audio
Cons: Game play, Realism

NO SPOILERS

Red Dead Revolver was a great enough easter egg of a game back in the day way before we even heard of the term "free roam". And now, the Red Dead series is back, with a bang.

As obvious to those already, you play as John Marston, another man trying to survive in the Wild Wild West after being left for dead. That's about as far as my spoiler will go, and besides that's said in the commercial.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this game, maybe MINOR bugs, which you can't even consider bugs, all that really happens is that a bush gets in your way every once in awhile, and that's mostly during cutscenes!

Any other problem with this game is because of the uniqueness it brings to the third person genre, such as weapon selection. Its only troubling to use at first, after maybe a few hours its not even a problem to consider, heck even in the beginning its not a problem to consider, I'm just throwing it out there because that's the best complaint anyone can make about this game!

Side missions, mini games, story are all well put together and insanely fun, multiplayer is a blast and a great breath of fresh air when you don't feel like roaming the rural Wild West by yourself. It is an absolutely fun and stunning game. I can honestly say this is the best shooter I have ever played, and I'm a guy who owns Goldeneye 007 on the N64. 10 out of 10, and that's an understatement of a rating.
