Well, I can't deny that Red Dead Redeption received a great review. Super Mario Galaxy 2 did pretty well, too.

-Alpha5183d ago

God I want Read Dead but I also really want Mod Nation.

I just hope I don't get bored with Red Dead like I did with GTA IV. I am very cautious of the title.

blitz06235183d ago

I agree. I got bored with GTAIV pretty fast and I really hope RDR is a more intense title. I wasn't looking forward to this game until my friend started spamming me with all kinds of trailers which got me interested. Then the score just makes it more interesting, not to mention the preorder bonuses different stores have. I'm definitely getting RDR.

hazeblaze5183d ago

I'm getting both RDR & Mod Nation... both are must have games for me!

raWfodog5183d ago

What turned me off of GTAIV was everybody always calling me to hang out. Thank god for no cell phones in the wild, wild west :)

yoshiro5183d ago

gooood I was expecting that...great score, probably we have a GOTY here!!^^

nveenio5183d ago

What's nice about RDR is that its review isn't as hype-based as GTA4 might have been. GTA4 was technically awesome, but there just wasn't much to do in the "open world", so it got boring. I think that RDR's score might have a lot more to do than GTA4 had.

Now, I'm REALLY anxious to see what Agent has to offer. GTA4/RDR tech with Blu-Ray's storage limits? Yes, please!

Ri0tSquad5183d ago

I don't think it'll get boring as quick as GTA IV did. Yeah, sure it's a sandbox game like GTA IV, but it seems like no other game has managed to capture the setting as well as Read Dead Redemption (based on reviews I have read, videos I have watched).

The_Count5182d ago

I can't wait to count every mile I travel!

ah ah ah

frankymv5182d ago

GTA was a great game but I got bored with it very quickly.

NeoSprtacus5182d ago

Don't be so quick there with the telephones...

mal_tez925182d ago

GTA IV gave me about 5 hours of gameplay before I got too bored. Red Dead Revolver was good though, so I hope the sequel is too.

Shang-Long5182d ago

I've been wanting a racer for a while. I'm not a hardcore racing fan so gt5 isn't for me, and I was busy with other games to get either motorstorm. So modnation is perfect for me me. It's LBP mixed with Mario kart what's not to love :) can't wait

arakouftaian5182d ago

Your replay is not a direc replay to Valay
and I'm tired of people replayng to someone
with no point.
You comment could have been in another replay
bt does not make sence if you replay tovaley just to be on the 2 place post
please n4g mods ban this guy msj.
And other doing the same thing just to be in
the 1 or 2 comment, how old are you?

UltraNova5182d ago

My worries as well guys. And blitz Rockstar is the best at'buying' people through awesome trailers! See GTA IV! Dont get on the hype train.. wait for some credible reviews and then decide..

bjornbear5183d ago

i agree, im actually getting more of a Far Cry 2 fear

the whole "THE WORLD IS MASSIVE AND BEAUTIFUL" argument failed for them, now I hope this doesn't happen with RDR

still, good to see over all great scores, Super Mario still king =D Miyamoto never runs out of ideas =O

Mod nation and AW seem to be solid titles too, i just feel bad for AW SUPER HYPERS that made the game out to be 10/10 and GOTY =/ thats what caused it to get so scrutinized

velcry5183d ago

I must say, I was initially fearful that the game would tank because of all the negative publicity about poor working conditions, low morale, and other similar troubling reports about the studio working on it.

Very glad for them that their game seems to be turning out so well.

Guess this is going to be another must-buy!

Lifendz5183d ago

Hmm....gotta wonder if it's really that good or if R* is still reaping the benefits of GTA4 (which I thought was good but not nearly as good as the critics made it out to be).

I think I'll rent RDR and see for myself. Can't really trust reviewers these days because when they overrate a game they really overrate a game.

StanLee5183d ago

Red Dead Redemption is shaping up to be Game of the Year. It really seems to have the depth that GTAIV didn't. Looking forward to it. I'm getting Red Dead Redemption, Alan Wake and Split Second all on the same day.

erathaol5183d ago (Edited 5183d ago )

I also enjoyed their Lost Planet 2 review, way better than IGN's.

Inside_out5183d ago

Alan Wake and RDR for me too...RDR does look like the complete package...I think it could be GOTY...incredible graphics and atmosphere for both AW and RDR...honorably mention goes to....lost planet2...

Danteh5183d ago

Game-Informer's magazine is sick, RDR review (which is the only game in years that I have seen both PS3 and 360 fans equally excited for and not flaming... which is great cause most of us are gonna buy it), Little Big Planet preview, Gears 3, Mario Galaxy 2 review... wow :D

Echo3075182d ago

I agree. I was thinking the other day, there are SOOO many publications out there that get questioned when it comes to game reviews and console preference, etc.... Up to this point, I have never heard a single person try and talk about how biased GI is, or that their reviews suck or anything like that.

I've been subscribing to them since around the Dreamcast launch, and with the exception of only a couple of games, I usually agree wholeheartedly with their opinions.

Greywulf5182d ago

Anyone get it early? Hope the MP is better than uhm..GTA4.

Echo3075182d ago

Funny you should mention it, I was playing GTA 4 earlier tonight trying to mop up a few multiplayer trophies, and man... multiplayer is AWFUL in that game. A complete after-thought when compared to the single-player.

On topic, RDR is day 1 for me, as is Modnation.

dragunrising5182d ago

I'm glad that Alan Wake, RDR, and Super Mario Galaxy 2 received good reviews.

I was interested in Mod Nation but have read too many articles about long load times, which is disappointing to say the least. I feel that Mod Nation is a "sequel" to Mario Kart Wii in many respects. I hope a patch decreases this problem (pun intended) as it detracts from the pick up and play game play that would compel me to purchase it :-p
