Summary: I really enjoy this game. Still have not finished it because the campaign is crazy long, but worth it. It can seem repetitive, but that's just to me, you may have a different opinion. If you were wondering whether or not to buy the DLC War Horse, I personally think it is worth it because after using it and switching to another horse, you realize how slow the others are.
Summary: I am a multi player person so thats what i play on this game. Free roam is fun for a while but doing gang hide out after gang hide out over and over it gets tedious and annoying. The other multiplayer games are border line ridiculous. So many hackers are online and gets a head shot across the map with one bullet. Almost every game iv played in people have the same amount of head shots as kills. Its crazy.
Rockstar has finally made a game with *too much* stuff to do

Summary: Well, I never thought I'd say it, but Red Dead Redemption is a good game that suffers from one noticeable flaw... there's just too much stuff to do in it. I know that sounds crazy, but it's really true. This game is amazing in a lot of ways, the graphics are great, the gameplay is classic GTA-style fun (although I think the "sandbox" element is a little reduced given the setting), and there are tons of sidequests, oh are there tons of sidequests.
Summary: Great quality for a used game. It's a very fun game but there are no difficulty choices. There is only one difficulty and it's pretty easy for the most part. If you like a challenge, then I wouldn't suggest this game. But if you enjoy a bunch of different random things in one then buy it!
Summary: Red Dead Redemption was an experience with no general direction and a blotchy story line. Maybe I did not give the game enough of a shot or maybe I just don't enjoy quality games, but I felt like the open world was too vast to cultivate any type of structure to overall plot. So if you want an engrossing chronicle of the Wild West and a quest lineup that enjoys some sequencing of events don't look here.
Summary: I'm a fan of Rockstar games but I found this one actually a bit boring. Visually it was impressive and the world is very detailed and big but the action was lacking. I played for about a week then lost interest. I'm still looking forward to trying LA Noir but I wish I hadn't purchased this one.
Summary: GTA formula. If you like this style of gameplay, you will be comfortable with this. The problem is simple...the old west isn't that exciting. It just doesn't have the same wow factor as GTA 4. It was basically boring.
Summary: I bought this game to give me something to do while I'm sick with pregnancy at home. I needed to get my mind off of thinking about getting sick and I was hoping this game would do it for me like GTA did for me during my first pregnancy. It looked fun, had 4 stars so I thought I'd give it a chance. It's immediately fun. While there is no real tutorial part of the game, you get hands-on experience as you play. This can be fun for some and annoying to others.
Summary: This review pertains to single player only at this time. This game is everything you expect it to be... Grand Theft Horse. That said, I loved Rockstar's GTA IV ... I think it might be the best piece of virtual art I've seen... the environments are gorgeous and the overall feel of the city is incredible...a love letter to the City of New York (can't wait to see what they do with my beloved city in LA Noire).
Summary: RED DEAD REDEMPTION is an archetypal sandbox game, presenting a massive, living world for the game player to explore. As purely a sandbox, the game is an immense success. The explorable area is quite large, comparable to Elder Scrolls 3 and 4 and the graphics are rich and realistic and the lack of loading screens, even when entering buildings, is nothing short of impressive.
