Excerpt: There is no denying that Red Dead Redemption was one of the stand out games of the year. We may even be bold enough to say that it was the game of the year! The blend of had hitting storylines, loveable characters and enough in game tasks to make your head spin truly revolutionised both sandbox shooters and turned the western videogame into something that the industry can be really proud of.
Excerpt: It seems there are two types of monsters that feature prominently in today’s cultural zeitgeist: sparkly vampires and drooling zombies. Videogames in particular have embraced the latter and flooded the market with the undead little scamps–from Plants vs Zombies to Dead Island .

Excerpt: Going by Rockstar’s past history with DLC, we all knew that sometime down the line we were going to get a chance to revisit Red Dead Redemption’s grand and harsh world, but when you consider that the mainline game is grounded in reality, no one could have expected the result to be Undead Nightmare . Undead Nightmare is set shortly after John Marston rescued his family towards the end of the main game.
Conclusion: Many people like to call Red Dead Redemption “GTA 4 in the Wild West” and I honestly do not mind the comparison. Rockstar did a Grand Theft Auto like job with this game in that it’s a total sandbox game with great dialogue. The graphics and visual design of the game works very well and looks awesome.

Summary: Undead Nightmare is a great reminder of why we fell in love with Red Dead Redemption in the first place. The added zombies may seem silly, but there's a solid story that successfully walks the line between comedy and serious action. Some may complain about the filler missions, but it's worth spending the $10 to revisit one of the best games of the year! This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Conclusion: West with the Undead Nightmare DLC. As already mentioned, the previous two Red Dead Redemption DLCs were focused primarily on multiplayer upgrading. But Undead Nightmare presents a fresh single-player storyline that plays almost as long (about a dozen hours) as many full-priced games. The story’s not very original: something sinister is causing the dead to leave their graves and walk the Western landscape, attacking all those unfortunate to cross paths with these zombie...
