IGN: Red Dead Redemption Review

"Red Dead Redemption is a must-play game. Rockstar has taken the Western to new heights and created one of the deepest, most fun, and most gorgeous games around. You can expect the occasional bug or visual hiccup, but you can also expect a fantastic game that offers the Western experience we've all been waiting for. Red Dead Redemption is a complete game in every sense -- both the single player and multiplayer modes are excellent -- and still manages to offer an attention to detail you rarely see from a game of this scope."

I really hope this doesn't turn out to be like GTAIV, where it got near perfect reviews (10 here in IGN) but I got tired of it pretty easily. It seems more interesting though, can't wait for tomorrow

Double Toasted2867d ago

Everyone seems to be saying that. But who the hell besides...ign...or the like, thought the game would be a 10? I mean the graphics were a 7 at best, lol.

The_Count2867d ago

Can't wait for this. I'm in UK though so I need to wait until Friday but Hey it's worth it.

^ exactly.... GTAIV was vastly overrated..
this game with the western setting is gonna rock

I was so much wishing that you could lasso in Muliplayer and also setup hangings.....I guess that would have been to much over the top...but just think of lassoing someone dragging them behind the horse as he looks up at your horses a$$...that would have been a priceless gaming moment

Proxy2867d ago

we have lasoings and hangings. Oh boy.

GTA4 was a good game, but the problem was from reviews everyone expected it to be a revolution of gaming, and in that respect it wasn't it was just more like a toned down HD GTA3. I'm trying hard not to get swept up in the RDD hype, but I think it's tool late. Really hope this thing actually delivers, I can't wait to go explore the countryside.

This looks better than GTA IV...

KillaManiac2867d ago PS3 Review!

I wonder if the UPS guy stole their copy to play it on his PS3.

Woulda liked to see if they talked about that exclusive content stuff.

inveni02867d ago

I saw that there's no PS3 version available to IGN for review... I'm not sure what to think about that.

Indy-Pendent2867d ago (Edited 2867d ago )

Rockstar didn't send them a ps3 version early...

inveni02867d ago

Isn't that EXACTLY what I just said?

Reading comprehension amongst gamers is pretty sad.

AKS2867d ago

I'm glad to see that the audio is evidently excellent, but I'd be skeptical regarding the precision of their ratings of sound. Uncharted 2 didn't get a 10/10 from them in sound, and that's the best sound in a video game I've ever heard in any format, and yes, that even includes PC. I think ign listens to games through TV speakers.

inveni02867d ago

I think they include more than just effects and such in the sound category. I think voice acting plays a big part, too.

That being said, Uncharted 2 is still the best game I've seen in the sound category...even through TV speakers. (Though Killzone 2 is pretty close...except for the voice acting.)

Sweet, I only spotted this game a few weeks ago, can't belive I didnt notice it until then. Now everyone will situp and take notice of this game. Can't wait until I get my hands on it.

RBdrift2867d ago

Yeah same here...Now this game is the true definition of a sleeper game.
