      This may singlehandedly be the best game I have ever played in my life. While everyone was playing call of duty and battlefield, I was playing Red Dead Redemption. I flat out gave this a 10 out of 10 for many reasons. This game arguably out does any game that Rockstar has done in the past. Not only is it a very enjoyable game, but it also has a high amount of replayability. The campaign is heartwrenching and has many activities that will take hours to complete. The achievements/trophies are also a lot of fun to complete. The campaign had me on the edge of my seat in all 3 locations being the west, Mexico, and the north. I will not spoil it for any gamers out there, but be in for a pleasant/unpleasant ending. By that I mean it may be controversial to the gaming community. Lets get into the multiplayer now. The endless hours of sandbox multiplayer a.k.a Free Roam makesthe multiplayer experience. You can meet up with friends, riot at gang hideouts, start up a posse(playgroup), and do much more. This is what most players participate in if they are just looking to have a great time. It is also a great way to discover the xp system in which you level from 1-50 and then enter legend mode(there are 5 legend modes by the way). There is also a less played multiplayer playlist that has many objectives and you may just be skilled enough to get the much sought after and awesome looking golden guns. This was all great, but my overall favorite part of Red Dead Redemption was the free co-op campaign playlist. This is not on the disc itself, but must be downloaded for FREE on either psn or xbox marketplace. I believe it has 9 missions and all of them have an awesome story line. This is also a great way to earn x.p. This game is awesome and you will get your moneys worth out of this game due to the awesome graphics, huge map, and huge amount of fun you can have with friends.

      I originally played this on my 360 when it came out back in 2010. When it became backward compatible (C'mon Sony!!!) for the Xbox One I decided to play it again and I am REALLY glad I did. I always had it in my top 10 list of all time games but it feels even better now than i remember it. Not even sure how much of a graphical update it gets on the XBOne but it LOOKS AMAZING still... for a 6 year old game! Rockstar has a great library of games and GTA V is a fantastic game... but stealing horses instead of cars is just a little more exciting! :) If you haven't played Red Dead Redemption before, the GOTY Edition is a MUST have! And if you still don't play it... you aren't a real gamer! It would be like saying you like movies but never seeing The Godfather!

      Great game! Brings back many memories. However, there is one major issue that constantly keeps me from playing the game. On Undead Nightmare, the zombies will turn into humans at random times. It still shows them as enemies on the minimap. However, if i try to kill them, then the entire town will try to kill me because they think I'm attacking another human. It wouldn't be a big deal to me if it would happen every once in a while, but this bug occurs way too often. If you're looking to play Undead Nightmare, then i would not recommend purchasing the game.

      Had this game and traded it in. When I found out that it was added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility, I just had to get it again. The graphics have been updated and everything works seamlessly. I forgot how much fun this game was the first time around. I also traded it in before the zombie addition came out and never tried it, but it's included in the game of the year edition. Once I'm done playing through the main game again, I can't wait to try the zombies!! I'll have to update my review when I get it. Definitely worth a look if you never tried it, and to replay it again, if you've already done so. Forgot ho solid the storyline was too. Definitely feel for the main character.

      Although this game is for the XB360, I purchased this to play on the XBone via Backwards Compatibility provided by XBLive Gold. This game is a classic, and in my opinion, one of the top five best games ever made. Sometimes, I just roam around in single player, hunting animals and other relaxing activities. The campaign missions are fun and challenging. The online multiplayer and social challenges also add fun, as does the included Undead Nightmare expansion pack. Unlike Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto franchise, I would consider this game family friendly, and great time for kids and adults alike.

      Probably my favorite game I have ever played. The sheer size of the world the game takes place in is amazing, especially considering the game is already 6 years old. With the great story line, endless side missions, and tons of ways to find yourself distracted out in the wilderness, this game is a must play for anyone that has not yet played it. Once you have beat the game play the Undead Nightmare for even more fun. The game was also updated recently for the Xbox One X so it now supports 4k!

      This a sequel to Red Dead Revolver. However, it is where most people jumped in on Red Dead, so don't let that discourage you from playing it. This version of the game has the dlc included with it. It has weird packaging. It is compatible with the Xbox one via backwards compatibility. The spine of the case says Xbox one, but the game is in a 360 case. This means the game will won't fit in on your shelf. It will be taller than your Xbox one games or will say Xbox One next to your 360 games.

      Awesome Game(s), Awesomer Deal

      RDR is an incredible game for every reason that makes a game great: story, characters, gameplay, and audio/visual. I borrowed this game from a friend a few years ago for 360 and loved it, and I've always wanted to play the Undead Nightmare. So when I saw this deal at Best Buy and read that these games are backward compatible on Xbox One, I jumped on it. Glad I did. I'd highly recommend to anyone who likes story driven single player campaigns with fun combat and character development. And cowboys and zombies of course.
