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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
