Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: With John Hillcoat DVD

The 30 minute short film, created and directed by John Hillcoat (the director of The Proposition and The Road), chronicles a slice-in-time of protagonist John Marston as he tracks down his former fellow outlaw and friend, Bill Williamson. Along the way, Marston encounters many of Red Dead Redemption's eclectic cast of dreamers, misfits and liars. Using the world of Red Dead Redemption as a virtual film studio and created entirely with in-game assets and technology, Hillcoat re-imagines Marston's pursuit of justice and salvation.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Blackwater. S#^+. I'm still only in Blackwater..." October 19, 2010

Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:With John Hillcoat DVD
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A man is forced by the government to accept a difficult task . A powerful man, who was formerly a popular leader but is now considered a criminal, must be eliminated. Getting close to the target will require a long, arduous expedition to a highly fortified compound. The government must not be connected in any way to the mission. Sound familiar?

No, the target's name is not Kurtz in Red Dead Redemption. But it might as well be. Rockstar has once again taken inspiration from a masterpiece of cinema. In the same way that the Grand Theft Auto series is strongly linked to works by Singleton, Scorsese, De Palma, and Kurosawa, Red Dead Redemption pays homage to Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now.

On the surface, RDR appears to be based on classic Westerns. The game is set in the American frontier at the beginning of the 20th century. There are plenty of references to films directed by John Ford, Sergio Leone, Clint Eastwood, and Sam Peckinpah. The driving forces behind the game's narrative, however, are questions about duty versus honor, confrontations with enemies who may not truly be opposed to what your character represents, and most importantly, the achievement of spiritual redemption by completing a psychologically harrowing journey. Western films often address these themes as well, of course, but without any ambiguity or ambivalence. It's always crystal clear who is good, who is evil, and what is right and what is wrong in these films. In contrast, RDR and AN deliberately obscure their moral viewpoint on the actions of their characters.

Anybody familiar with Apocalypse Now will recognize that many aspects of RDR's story are directly analogous to events in AN.

Well I was a little skeptical to buy this because it was $20 less then just the regular copy, I thought both games were just in a cardboard sleeve thats why it was cheaper. Nope, its the original game case with the cardboard sleeve of the 1 hour special TV movie in it.
Its a great value, not only is it $20 cheaper but comes with extra's.

This review is just on packaging, im sure you know enough about the game. ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept going back March 30, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:With John Hillcoat DVD
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed Red Dead Redemption. I't a game that has kept me coming back. It was also the first XBox game where I actually tried the Multi-Player and have really enjoyed it, even when some 12yo keeps shooting me in the head ;)

The story kept me playing the game until I completed it, and the challenges and multi-player have kept me coming again and again. The multi-player does seem to have slowed considerably but I guess that is expected froma game that has been out this long.

The Zombie DLC was a cool side story in an alternate version of the main story as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The game I have wanted since I was ten years old January 14, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:With John Hillcoat DVD
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember being ten years old and watching old reruns of Roy Rogers and the Lone Ranger at 2 AM on Saturday mornings. Like most kids my age, I played "guns," and I always had a special place in my heart for the Cowboy. Of course that all changed the first time I saw "A Fist Full of Dollars" on the Three O'clock Movie. It was cut so badly that the movie did not really make alot of sense to me, but the style had me HOOKED. As I got older and into video games and computers, the Western genre was a joke. The most remembered western game from the 2600 era was the absurd "Custer's Revenge" (NSFW, be warned.)

Finally, the tech matured enough for "virtual places," more western games were attempted, but all fell flat except the two Call of Juarez games and of course Red Dead Revolver. I really liked Call of Juarez, the story and some of the levels were really fun! However it lacked style of any sort. Red Dead Revolver was a pretty average PS2 game, but it showed that Rockstar was attempting to implement that Leone style that was single handedly responsible for reviving the western in the early sixties. Though Leone got closer to the "real west," his style is very unique and cartoonish in its own way. I find it very interesting that Rockstar, a company founded and directed by (originally) non Americans could so accurately depict American culture for better or for worse!

Red Dead Redemption is a love letter to Sergio Leone's wild west. though Kosov(?) makes a good case for relation to Apocalypse Now in regard to the story, pretty much all Rockstar open world games have followed that same premise. As has been said, the graphics are simply outstanding, as the success of the Hillcoat movie shows that the engine is simply a treat to watch in motion.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Once i started playing this game i was immediately hooked! At first it's very similar to GTA, but as you go along with the story it becomes it's own. I liked this game primarily because i love western movies and this seemed to bring the west to life.
