I can't stop playing it.
Some days I'll come home from work and play a little poker, go out hunting, maybe help a guy get his stolen horse back.... whatever pops up. The story and voice acting are great, and I can't wait to see what happens next.
And I haven't even tried the multiplayer yet.
The graphics are great and the characters are detailed. The voice acting is very well done and fits the setting perfectly. If you like sandbox style games, definitely pick this up. Even if sandbox style games don't strike your fancy, consider giving it a shot, as the unique setting definitely makes it stand out from games in this category.
To start off, this really feels like it's 2 games in one; the Single Player Campaign, and the Online experience. Both have their exclusive elements which really sets Read Dead Redemption (RDR) apart from most games that have a campaign while simultaneously offering online gameplay.
Campaign mode in RDR is a story-driven experience that offers a massive open world to begin with, and eventually unlocks 2 other sections on the map that only make it larger. Rockstar was never a graphics powerhouse like say, Square-Enix, but this game fares well and is a step up from any of their previous efforts. The side challenges are fun as well, and only add to the experience of the game. Shooting, collecting, hunting, treasure-seeking - all part of the extras PLUS there are stangers to help along the way! Not only that, mini games such as Black Jack, Poker, and 5-Finger Filet (my personal fav) are also offered. With about 20 hours put into the game, I had only achieved about 30% game completion. All in all, a great campaign mode. Fans of action adventure games will not be disappointed.
Online gameplay is different from the campaign mode in that, despite using the same map from the single player mode, actually feels like a different game. This is achieved through new (different) challenges as well as the ability to play alongside (up to) 8 other players in a "posse" (gang) as a means of storming gang hideouts and accomplishing other challenges in "capture the flag" style matches that involve bags of gold, or standoffs/duels, and even deathmatches in a squared-off town. As I mentioned earlier, it really does feel like a different game, while still having that uncanny familiar feel.Read more ›
If haven't all ready heard by now this game's virtual world is massive and beautiful to ride through on the horse. I am enjoying the single player story mode right now and I like it a lot. Even though there is a sequence of events there are plenty of other challenges and tasks outside of the main story to not make it feel like a guided story (like Uncharted). I am normally a PC gamer and not much for the story type games but this one I enjoy because of the open world concept that still has a story line you can return to when you're ready. I've had a horrible time adjusting to the controller instead of the mouse in PS3 online shooting games. There are enough lessons in the story line to show you how to use the guns, lasso, and horse riding to help a beginner out though.
The online experience has been less fun and detailed but still interesting none the less. It seems you can only get experience points by shooting stuff. As with any online play you run into a lot of jerks, grievers, and gangs who want to show their dominance over any one else. This is less a fault of the game and more the online console environment. It was fun to storm gang hideouts with friends, but can become tedious. It's mostly running around shooting at characters. But fun none the less.
