Summary: I was very pleased to see the advertisement for this game, I had been waiting a long time for a western shooter. Although I prefer first person shooters, it is still a pretty good game. The multiplayer is incredibly fast-paced, exciting, and addictive. There is a huge selection of characters to choose from. The first person was excellent, a great challenge.
Summary: This game was a long time in the making, and given the cultural popularity of the Western genre, it is surprising that a Western-themed video game should take so long to come to market. I had this game for a long time, but only recently got to play it, and when I finally got into it, it was enormously entertaining and I loved a lot of the spaghetti-western themed humor and musical score.
Summary: Many film critics feel that the Western genre is all but dead in the modern era. They're right. Still, Red Dead Revolver is a video game, not a film, and while extremely enjoyable, the game can become repetitive very fast and make one rue the return of Westerns. Make no mistake, I like this game alot, but there are some minor foibles. First, however, let's look at the positives: 1. There are some really inivative sections of the game.
Summary: Rockstar has done it again. They have managed to live up to the hype i was expecting it to be. I saw an online preview for this game on Rockstargames.com. I was excited for it because it look awesome, and trust me...it is. Arcade style gameplay of run n shoot stuff. Plus some nice boss fights, challenging gameplay( challenging....not annoying), and overall fun. The story basically follows red, a boy whos family was killed by bandits.
Summary: Overall rating - fun and well worth a rent. There are very, very few games out there that are worth $50.00 to me. I've learned to rent before I buy to save the heartache. I expected greatness from Rockstar of course and I got "pretty goodness" from Red Dead. It's fun and once you learn the controls it's challenging enough without being too hard. I was hoping it would be a little more non-linear like the GTA games. Not quite that good I'm afraid.
Summary: This was the first game I ever bought new, and paid full price for. I kicked myself about it all the way home for giving in, but once I played it that evening I realize how worth it it was. Not since GTA3 have I enjoyed trecking through a game so much, some levels are very hard, and there is quite a level of strategy involved in beating them. Often you have to time when you are going to pick up health bars, or who you are going to kill first to get through a level.
Summary: This game is fun if you like westerns and enjoy a shooting game. I rented it and finished it in a weekend. It does have challanging levels and the quick draws are fun, but it seems to lack what the Grand Theft auto's had. It is very linear in the story line. Rent it before making the purchase.
Summary: I admit I was hoping this would be a spaghetti Western version of Grand Theft Auto and, as many here have pointed out, it just isn't. But GTA raised the bar pretty damn high and few games can match Vice City's level of brain damaging fun, gameplay and graphics. The graphics and the gameplay here are 3-3.5 star level.
Summary: When I saw Red Dead Revolver, I thought it was Grand Theft Auto in a western setting. Well, to a degree it is, but it's also its own game too. Obviously you will notice that the graphics are in the Grand Theft auto cartoon style... Otherwise it's a new ballgame. One noticable difference from GTA is the lack of freedom. This game is very focused of action rather then walking around a giant environment.
