What Gamespot Users have to say about Red Dead Redemption

  • User Rating:7.5

    It's a great game, but not what it's cracked up to be.

    The game is good, but suffers from very repetitive story missions. There's lots to do, but it's all a bit laborious and, at times, I really felt I had to force myself to play. The problem isn't with the execution - the v... Read Full Review

    AWESOME LIKE MIZ

    I'm not a fan of games like this, but this game was amazing. It was better then any GTA game every made. The landscape was so big and beautiful. It made you feel like you was in the west. I really thought it was going to... Read Full Review

    John Marston feels like John Wayne

    Red Dead Redemption is much more than just a Grand Theft Auto clone even though their are massive similarities, Red dead is not GTA in the desert by any means. There is much more than just main missions in Red Dead, f... Read Full Review

    Greatness

    At first after I played undead nightmare I still didn't know if this was going to be something that I would enjoy playing and thankfully I was wrong again. This is how the wild west should have been without a doubt. ... Read Full Review

    Not as amazing as I thought it'd be, but still a solid experience.

    Most of the games I play don't live up to the hype, and red dead is no exception. I didn't even really have any hype coming into this game, I thought I'd just, try it out. It sounded interesting enough. The atmospher... Read Full Review

    Can't Stay Interested

    I'm into Mexico and have dealt with the corrupt military, but I just can't bring myself to play any longer. The shooting mechanics are slow and clunky, the dueling seems arbitrary to me (I'm probably missing something s... Read Full Review

    It's like tombstone with GTA sensibilities.

    I don't care what anybody says this is Grand Theft Auto set in the old west. The change of scenery and time setting oviously affect some of the dynamics of gameplay, but if you have played a newer GTA game then you shou... Read Full Review

    Awesome game, i'm glad red dead's back.

    I'm a western lover, gun lover, and video game lover. This game meshes all of that into one of my favorite series ever. I played red dead revolver probably over 25 times, i don't know what it was but i could not stop pla... Read Full Review

    Want a cow-boy GTA? With horses, nice story, good time in Mexico, slow-mo and a lasso to grab people? Here it is!

    A great game with beautiful graphics, a fully emotional story, a lot of action and great mechanics. This game is based on the stories of the old Far-West, with the cow-boys and everything. The developers tried something ... Read Full Review

    One of the best games of this generation, and even tops Rockstar's GTA series.

    At first glance Red Dead Redemption seems like its a good game worth picking up, but after putting in countless hours and playing though a great story I have to say it is a huge understatement. This game is one of the be... Read Full Review
