This and Grand Theft Auto V are the only reasons I own an Xbox 360. In terms of both story and gameplay, nothing has struck a chord with me more than with Red Dead Redemption. While the mechanics and presentation have improved with GTA V, the enjoyment that comes from playing John Marston in Rockstar's Western masterpiece is what puts it at my #1 spot. The voice acting is great, the atmosphere is spot on and the explosiveness of the action is fun every time. It truly feels like you are both playing and watching a film classic.

Along with the Bioshock franchise and the Fallout series, this was a reminder to me that games can not only be entertaining but artistic as well. BIg thanks to the guys at Rockstar! Hope a sequel is around the corner.

Red Dead Redemption is a third person open world game set in the old west. It follows the story of John Marston who is forced by the government to track down his old gang members. The game's main missions take about 20 hours to complete and are great. The characters are likeable and interesting and the plot is engrossing. The game has an awesome and emotional ending that is one of the bests I have seen. This is probably the best third person open world game, much better than GTA or Assassin's Creed, because the game world actually feels alive. There are random events woven into the game world that make the game feel real. I highly recommend this game if you enjoy open world games, games with great plots, or Rockstar games in general like GTA.

This really was one of the best games I've ever played by Rockstar. I know a lot of people really think that Grand Theft Auto 5 is better but I say it ain't. playing this game is like watching a movie that takes place in the Old West. Its got a great narrative and and you can do lots of the things that people did in the West, like, hog tyi'n, shoot'n drink'n, $teel'n, gambl'n and train robb'n. Even the newspapers in the game are fun to read. Whatever you do not read any forms if you don't like spoilers. To those out there who like writing the endings to games and movies on forms please stop, your work is not appreciated.
This game was so good that I really don't think Rockstar could make another Redemption game that could top this one.

Possibly one of the best games out there for xbox 360. Great storyline, graphics and gameplay. The GOTY edition comes with the original RDR and RDR undead nightmare discs. Honestly, I am not a huge fan of undead nightmare. It is just too violent and gory. The storyline and the missions are also not as gripping as they are on the original game.
This game was recommended to me by a friend and I didn't have very high expectations. I saw good ratings on amazon and decided to give it a chance. It really is an awesome game. I am a huge fan of rockstar games (GTA, LA Noire, Max Payne) and while there is definitely a resemblance to GTA games, the creators have done an amazing job to make sure the gamer has hours and hours of immersive gameplay.

This game has it all. I'm glad I waited until the GoTY Edition came out, and then waited for the price to drop on it, because third-person MP isn't really my thing so I didn't have to worry about the online community dying out before I got to play it (though I don't think it has yet, not sure).

I'm not a fan of the story, it's a bit cliche and boring in my opinion, but the best part is it's almost hard to tell which is the main storyline and which is a sidequest. I played it for 25+ hours before I realized which questline I should be following.

Best part: the horse riding ACTUALLY WORKS! Finally, a game gets a horse-riding mechanic to be workable to the extent that it doesn't inspire acts of suicide.

This game is by far one of the best games for the Xbox 360. Both single player and multiplayer alike are loads of fun. Single player does have some annoying "filer" missions, but this is expected with Rockstar. Overall though, this is an awesome game.

PLUS the Undead expansion is the best expansion I've ever purchased. I could tell a lot of thought went into it and it was executed beautifully. Many expansions to games add some nice features but aren't really needed. I feel Red Dead needs this expansion (if you like zombies of course). It is very well done and it adds a multiplayer mode which brings continuing fun.

In my opinion, this is on of those games that every Xbox owner should buy along with the classics like Halo.

Simply put, this game is the best game i've ever played. I've been a gamer for years, and played dozens of games. THe action is notch perfect the dead eye system allowing for extra fun. THe plot was awesome, John Marston is a great protagonist. The graphics are great. The water is incredibly amazing. It looks beautiful, possibly the best i've ever seen in a game. THe characters are memorable, from Landon Ricketts, to Seth, to Abraham rEyes, they are interesting, and on occasion, funny. THe free roaming is great and the missions are fluid and replayable. Easily the best made game i've ever played. In single player. Multiplayer, kinda meh, but don't worry about that. the Single player is immersive and awesome.

Thought it was going to be a wild west version of Borderlands FPS play. Aiming is too slow for high speed fights for my taste. Yeah, there is a slow mo mode for precision shots over multiple targets which takes more practice than I have patience for.

I also compared it to Borderlands as far as the open world aspect, but I can't say it's even comparible. Maybe the HD version coming to Next Gen consoles and PC will have better controls. Otherwise, get Borderlands or Borderlands 2. I bought Borderlands 2 on release day and have been playing it for 3 years and still haven't completed everything. Best to get the GOTY edition with all the cool content.

So pass on this game.
