    Red Dead Redemption

    Warning: SpoilersI played this a LONG time ago I think in 2010 or 2011 before I went online. It takes place in 1911, the last days of the wild west. It's pretty much GTA in the wild west but there's also an honor, moral... Read Full Review

    Very good game

    Graphics: 8 Story: 9.5 Fun Factor: 8 Gameplay: 7.5 Replay Value: 7.5 Game is somewhat dated by 2022 standards, but still good. The gameplay just isn't quite as smooth. I think a remaster would give the gam... Read Full Review

    A work of art

    My second best game I’ve ever played in my life after MGS4, a true masterpiece that it’s dueling the good and the bad and the ugly in different media, heartwhelming deep story in two different countries with perfect paci... Read Full Review

    Starts off strong, but slowly goes downhill.

    The Good - it's very similar to GTA, in map and progression design. And I love it. The sandbox is one of the best for its time, especially when combined with its strong narrative and characters.- I appreciate the "skip t... Read Full Review

    Worth a Replay

    After completing Red Dead 2, I was tempted to go back and replay the original (Red Dead Revolver doesn't count imo). Although the game seems much smaller in scope and detail these many years later, I still found it quite... Read Full Review

    Red Dead Redempsion is Suck.

    I apologize in advance for the English language mistakes. If there were no five fingers in the mini-game, or it would be easier for the mission in Torquemada to beat even a small child, then agree with the assessment, be... Read Full Review

    one of the biggest games ever made in video game history, and the proof that Rockstar is the best developer of the last.

    I've never been very close to the western genre, but I also never got to watch or play (it's a bit of a genre explored in the games, we had notable games like Gun and Red Dead Revolver and Redemption, but it's not much),... Read Full Review

    Rockstar and TakeTwo are the worst companies ever. They create ambiguity and then attack players

    TakeTwo and Rockstar hate there customers and those that take there games from games to franchises. The only solution is to publicly apologize to the franchise makers and create a written policy promoting and encouragin... Read Full Review
