The Critics Agree: Red Dead Redemption Is The Best Of It’s Kind (Forget The Sub HD Talk)

When something is great just say it’s great, and that’s exactly what critics from all across the spectrum have been saying: Red Dead Redemption is a masterpiece which will sit in the same room with other great accomplishments, the likes of Grand Theft Auto, Halo, God of War and Metal Gear Solid just to name a few.

I never understood the controversy. Doesn't the game still satisfy you're appetite for awesome?

And If you feel fanboys are using "haha teh ps3 cant run games"

Just say two words that strikes fear Into 360 fanboys belief.............. uncharted two.

average gamer wont even see difference when its in motion:

This comment is irrevelant. Ignore.

hay2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

True. This isn't a difference like Bayonetta and FF13 produced. Shouldn't matter.

But fanboys are fanboys. Their brain can't process reason.

@Edit: Whoah, Edit option produced additional comment.

Ghost_Sparta2926d ago

That's exactly what I think! I really don't know what is the advantage of someone find so minor graphical differences...I've GTA4 for the PS3 and I really enjoy it and can't see how the game is inferior in any kind of its Xbox 360 counterpart...I only would see differences if I analise them at insane and completly useless detail!

BeaArthur2926d ago

Here's the problem with your statement. You call out people for being fanboys and then you make a fanboy comment.

Nike2926d ago

I wonder why they couldn't have just said "Critics agree: RDR is the best of it's kind". Why include "forget the sub-hd talk"? If it's not relevant or important - as it rightly isn't - then why include it?

Answer: Site is fishing for hits. Makes them look a little more awkward on their high horse.

arakouftaian2926d ago

Its not nice im still going to enjoy the game like i have
so e áreas look photorealistc wich is nice
but many áreas look sub-HD wich is not nice
i hope they can fix or parch it if not w/ e i will still enjoy the game.

Its very fun and the multiplayer is adictive

solar2926d ago

it's idiot console gamers that argue over Sub HD graphics.

bjornbear2926d ago

and I play in sub HD, and I agree. console gamers are idiots for arguing over HD/sub HD graphics.

solar2926d ago

thank you bjorn for seeing my comment for what it was. not "all", the "idiotic" one's that fight in that stupid console war. consoles still lag far behind PC's in term's of rez + overall performance. but watching so called "gamers" argue over old tech is absolutely laughable. bubble coming your way mate.

Minimox162926d ago

yeah but console gamers are able to play this master piece and computer gamers don't :P

GameFly text me it shipped Monday, should be here tomorrow! Have next Monday off and the kid is gone camping for the weekend!

Me, RDR, Pizza, Grey Goose and 6.1 fiber optic surround sound.

I like me!

CellularDivision2926d ago

Just say one word that strikes fear into PS3 fanboys belief....... Crysis

bjornbear2926d ago

fail bot is fail.

thats a PC game...not a 360 exclusive Forest.

lowcarb2926d ago

WE all know UC2 looks great but we also all know it's nowhere near the size of this game which kills the argument. If UC2 were the size of Red Dead it would look no where near as good.

bjornbear2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

it would just take up more space/work for the dev....there's nothing that would detract from the games quality in relation to size vs graphics.

you people think open world demands more for good looking graphics, but its possibly more to do with the sheer amount of work required.

not only was this a 100 million dollar project (bigger than U2 or most exclusiveS) but it also had infamy for causing some of the people workin on it to get stress disorders and burn outs (too much work)

so...its more about how MUCH the dev produces, not the power of the console.

im sure if ND spent 4 years (dev time for this game?) and had as many employees as R* (as well as the budget) i assure you, they could make an open world game

it wouldn't be like R* because they are the kings of open world games, but it would be interesting

but once again, to assume open world = more hardware power, nah, its all about how you code it =)

correct me if i'm wrong of course, i jsut find it hard to believe a game like U2's quality is IMPOSSIBLE in open world atm.

Bigpappy2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

The 360 version was the lower resolution. I don't own a PS3 so I got the game on 360. I played DA and completed it 2 time. Never once I I think about how it would look at a higher resolution. If you think you would enjoy the game, but you are not buying it because it looks better on 360, do yourself a favor and just sell any console you own and go out and get a high end PC. Any true graphic whore should own a high end PC, to ensure that he always get the prettiest version of the games. The developers are doing there best to develop stable games on both consoles. They maybe able to get the PS3 version to look better than 360 version with enough time invested. But are you willing to wait another 6 months? And, how much more are you willing to pay for them to spend the time to make it prettier? $20; $30.

mesh12925d ago

i like these types of fanboys making stuff up !hahah da was never sub hd on the 360 !

Red Dead Redemption is great on both the PS3 and XBox 360.

movements2926d ago

couldn't with you more Space. Bubbles : )

Ghost_Sparta2926d ago

Exactly, it's not this kind of stupid detailed comparasions that will stop me to buy and enjoy this game at its maximum, like I did whith GTA 4!

himdeel2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

...if you're not playing both games side by side at the same time on two different systems on the same television then a comparison doesn't matter.

Raf1k12926d ago

Alan Wake may have a low resolution but from what I can tell there's nothing low quality about it and I'm still hoping it eventually makes its way to PC. BTW Resolution doesn't determine a game's quality.

Charmers2926d ago

Ohhhhhhhh the critics agree, well they must be right mustn't they /sarcasm The opinions of critics and the gaming press these days carries about as much weight as an astrologist in my books.
