Sorry I have not been keeping up on the posts guys... A lot of stuff just suddenly came up, personal stuff, Anywho! This blog entry will be rather short compared to other as seeing that my Chem class is taking over my life!
I would like to talk today about Red Dead Redemption.
OK, from the start I saw the "Rockstar Games" Logo and immediately saw that this was going to be a western version of GTA, and who guessed it? I was exactly that, Hell it was probably just a re-skin of the GTA series itself.... Because I swore I saw somebody walking around with sneakers on. Anyway, the game is also pretty bad. The campaign is very, very repetitive (basically going from Armadillo to Macfarlines Ranch). And it doesn't even end well, predicted ending...... Don't even get me started about multi-player! When the game first came out, all you could pretty much do was a Western style GTA shootout with the cops, and then maybe some actually skilled player comes in and hits you with a six shot revolver and you die when your only like 5 kills away from being most wanted! The only thing that actually amused me before the multi-player campaign came out was killing bears in tall trees, or making other people rage hard at the fact you killed them and their buddies. Then the first multi-player campaign came out, which provided only 2 hours worth of fun. The missions where easy (even in expert) and there was only 4-5 of them. Also, Multi-player had a lot of missing features that where in the solo campaign. Like roping wild horses, that would have been pretty boss to do in a multi-player environment. Lets just say I traded in this game while it was still worth something, hell, took $20 dollars off the cost of my Halo: Reach!
Overall, if you're into Westerns, and GTA style games. Go for it and try it out, thats the reason why a lot of people bought it, On the other hand, I would say this game is not for the casual/intense gamer. I would personally give it 4/10 stars.
