After giving 10 good reasons to love Red Dead Redemption, Cynamite has now posted their follow-up article with 5 reasons to hate Rockstar's newest blockbuster. Do you agree with the annoyances?
I havent played enough to be turned off by any annoyances just yet. It does bother both my girlfriend and I however that John is voiced by a no name Bill Paxton soundalike. Why not just get Bill Paxton to do the voice? He cant be that expensive. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Bubbles for mentioning Pax man... He's one of my favorite craptastic actors ever!
.. There is no reason at all to hate Red Dead Redemption, Ya I'm serious, It's a fantastic game :) Can i haz bubblez??? :D
My gripes: 1. Auto-aiming 2. Mediocre graphics 3. PS3 version is 644p 4. Uninteresting atmosphere( screw fallout 3 and these boring and drab empty enviroments) (I want a bustling city)
This is one major turnoff for me too! I haven't picked it up, but this feature makes me not want to :/
...and MP games.
4. Uninteresting atmosphere( screw fallout 3 and these boring and drab empty enviroments) (I want a bustling city) then why are you playing RDR, go play GTAIV 3. PS3 version is 644p how is that bad? how on EARTH does that deter from the gameplay and experience? auto-aim i believe can be turned off (or maybe just in multiplayer) mediocre graphics well, thats subjective but i think it looks great =)
#1 SUD HD.
I hate all the haters of this game!
Pretty sure that's how the GTAIV fanatacism started.
haha, I've been waiting for someone to point that out. Everyone loved GTA4 and then they all hated it. I liked GTA4 and I'm sure I will like this as well.
i'll be very surprised, if i like it more, i'll be in heaven! i expect to like it more...
If I liked Red Dead Revolver, but HATED GTA IV, will I like this?
How is the auto-aim? Is it fine, annoying? It's been too long since GTA IV for me to remember. That's the only thing really holding me back right now of getting it. SP wouldn't be so bad but multiplayer I would think you wouldn't want it at all.
You can turn off auto-aim. In GTA4 you can set your online preferences to turn off auto-aim as well, so you'll never join games with it on.
I wish someone could clarify how auto aim works in MP. I know I can turn mine off, but can I create a room with NO autoaim for anyone?
yes u can =)
+ Bubbles for you Monk3y. Thank you.
Wow, the game came out today and people are hating it already? That didn't take long. I'm picking my copy up in half and hour and I'm so excited.
In order to get an article recognized you have to be controversial at times. Take a popular game, and hate on it. That'll get attention! I'm sure there are some annoyances with RDR. Hate is probably a strong word, but it's catchy for the title. I prefer to look at this article as 5 problems that RDR has. I like reading these articles because they are more realistic. I know how GREAT RDR is but now I want to know what problems linger. I know auto-aim was a big issue back in GTA IV, I'm hoping it's fixed in RDR. I heard you also spawn next to enemies in Multiplayer which is uber-lame.
...on both points. One it's easier to get an article approved if it has a wee bit of controversy. That being said EVERY game has some annoyances or some subtle...hmm nuances that make you wonder why they did this or why didn't they fix that. It's the nature of games in general. Also auto aim in GTA4 was bogus and I equally hope that once I get home and pop RDR in and turn auto aim off it's gunplay isn't a pain and a half to deal with. EDIT: I also wouldn't say that they are hating on a game because they don't like something about it. I hated that in Killzone 2 it felt like Sev was really short but it didn't "break" the game for me or make it less enjoyable.
I hate it because i havent got it yet. !! Damn you european release dates!!!
wont even give the site a click.... no game is perfect but to write about it the day the game is released especially after the game is getting high 9s by many sites...just shows how much they have NOTHING of interest to write about dont give sites like this clicks...
Shall I tell you why most of you should dislike the game? Because when you buy it it'll be so much better. Let's all go back to April shall we remember the you bought GTA and called it the greatest game ever? A few days later you called it the biggest disappointed? That's because you where hyped for it, I HATED MW2 but I was never disappointed by it. If you hate something it's hard to be disappointed by it unless it turns out to be great, a win win situation.
Now tell me... Do people hate MW2 because it's popular or because they're allergic to awesome? It has GTA syndrome. People hated it because it was popular...even though IV was a much better game than any of the other lackluster GTA's. MW2 had one of the most intense storylines I've ever played! Wait. Lemme guess. You only play multi-player.
@Leon People hate MW2 because of the laggy buggy online multiplayer, the single player storyline that strayed away from real life and went for a hollywood movie, and the (for those who bought the map packs) 90 dollars they spent on the game. Luckily only two of those apply to me, though I can easily name much more detailed reasons as to why someone has an actual reason to hate MW2. And no it's not because of the fact it's awesome.
MW2 storyline was as bad if not worse than my old first year english essay... in other words poorly strung together and covered in jam. Did people seriously go, WAY I FEEL SOOOO emotionally connected to this characters hopefully these don't die like the 10 others I play. Frogger would be upset by the amount of jumping around this plot does. I'd seen a more coherent randomiser... set from 1-1,000,000. I'm not even hating on the story.... I'm being honest.
bubbles to you, mrv321 for the frogger reference!
The site is down (I wonder why) but I would not give it any hits anyway. Jason 360 if you cannot discuss the topic at hand then stfu because really no one wants to read a 11yr olds rants about your imaginary 360 which you probably don't even own.
This news is to make reading and has absolutely no interest...
I think Google need to do some work on the translator!!! They only sound like minor gripes though. Looking forward to getting my hands on it.
Articles like this are cancer for journalism. What's the point? Post your thoughts, but don't try to influence others to hate a game.
Why so obsessed with finding fucking faults with games? There is a saying: "You should appreciate everything you see and know for what it is, and not look for faults" or something like that. The point is, why is no just appreciate games for what they are and stop making these ridiculous articles about basically "why you shouldn't play this game". Fuck this pisses me off and excuse my language. Eat this instead: "Name 5 good reason why you should be able to play these games". Considering all the whining and complaining it should be hard to find one.
Frys Electronics has the game in store and online for $49.99. Thought id give people the heads up on this deal.
Already played 10 hours of it. So far: - Some of the best graphics on ANY platform. - Great voice acting. (John Marston sounds like Jason Lee though. I'm not sure where they're getting Bill Paxton.) - Brilliant new gameplay mechanics. (Hold X to stay at the same pace as other people on horses, as an example.) - If it breathes, you can kill it. I love that! I was hunting for a good two hours last night. It's so fun! - It's more like Bully than GTA. By that, I mean it has an interesting storyline and the missions aren't repetitive. - It's freaking massive. - You WILL be addicted.
idk why but whenever he speaks in the game I just see images of bill paxton flashing in my head. Maybe I've seen tombstone too many times. I can see a slight resemblance to jason lees voice now that you mention it.
Backlash from a bunch of jaded elitists who are never satisfied and carry around a sense of entitlement. Instead of being happy with a content packed, top shelf game that gives more than enough bang for your buck, they only focus on what negatives they can find. I don't know what is worse, the groups who do this or the pixel counters who over analyze every blade of grass and detail in between, nearly giving themselves a heart attack over which version might be slightly sharper resolution-wise, even though most will never even tell the difference.
I dont think that anyone should hate the game, but i must admit after putting in 10 hours into the game (PS3) the game is very over rated, not in the sense that people love it, but in reviews, the reviews scores are way too high for this game.RDR should have got a score no higher than 8.5 the lowest, or 9 the highest.
The industry loves R*. They can do no wrong. 8.5 is still good... I know the game isn't 10/10, but open world western has me sold... not the reviewers.
My eyes are bad then. It didn't look sub HD to me and if anybody knows their history the wild west wasn't about bustling cities it was about small towns and shootouts. Rockstar is really really good with their games despite being sub HD or not they still look good. Now Fallout 3 is a great game with mediocre visuals; however, if it all it takes to make a game with great story, acting, atmosphere, immersion, lots of videogame content and open world game to boot minus the visuals is okay in my book i.e. fallout 3, assasins creed franchise, etc.................
game is solid
