    Great game... but broken

    This isn’t about how terrible of a game this is, it’s great and normally would be a 5 star review. However, this game is broken and how or why Rockstar hasn’t bothered to patch it or fix it is baffling to me. When you are playing Undead Nightmare, shortly after playing the NPCs heads will disappear, making shooting zombies in the head a little harder but not terrible. However, once they lose their heads the game can’t differentiate human and zombie. So let’s say your trying to save a town, the survivors you hand bullets to have heads but the ones you don’t come into contact with don’t. So once you start killing zombies, it will say clear out the undead... and it includes the humans that are shooting as well. They are marked, and the game won’t continue unless they are dead as well. Killing them is a little harder because they have guns as well, and will take off running in different directions when you attack them. If you go to far to kill them, the town will reset and you have to start all over. That’s not as bad as trying to clear a graveyard, because if they don’t have heads the game won’t register how many you’ve killed and the undead will continue to keep crawling out of the graves. The only way to actually beat these missions is to start it, talk to one of the survivors/burn the first grave and then immediately kill yourself. Once you start the mission over again, everyone has their heads and it’s business as usual. This will last about a good... 20 minutes at best before everyone loses their heads. However, what truly sucks is when your traveling and you noticed the zombies don’t have their heads. You can’t tame a mythical creature. So say you’re traveling and you see one of the 4 horses of the apocalypse. You jump on it, and it will immediately buck you off and take off. You can chase it down, jump on it numerous times and it will immediately buck you off. Also, if you do have one of the 4 horses of the apocalypse and everyone loses their heads. The horse will no longer have infinite stamina, you’ll now have to ride it like a regular horse. I currently have the fire horse, which I know when everyone lost their heads because his flames will disappear, feet are see through and of course the blue speed meter will kick in. It’s unfortunate that such a great game, is so broken. I don’t understand why it would get a rerelease without any patches.

    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.

    After beating RDR2, I decided to finally go back and play the first game. Definitely makes for a unique experience knowing how the two games tie together. Unfortunately, I knew the ending already, but the story in this game is still pretty good. John Marston isn't quite as a complex a character as Arthur Morgan though. As far as gameplay, it's mostly the same as RDR2, except not quite as polished, especially on horseback. The game is showing its age a bit, but it was still fun nonetheless. Had a very Tarantino feel. I think most people who say it was better than RDR2 though are being deceived by their memories. Biggest complaint though is Undead Nightmare. There is a glitch that Rockstar never addressed, which somewhat breaks the game. You'll know it when you start seeing headless enemies. Only fix is to die or reboot. Unfortunate, because the vibe and idea is awesome. Hope they do something similar with RDR2 to redeem this.

    I love RDR games, especially knowing that it is from Rockstar Games, and the maker of GTA games. I had previously bought this for the ps3 a while back then when it came out, and decided to rebuy this version for the xbox one x due to the 4k upgraded graphics, and i got to say it is amazing, really worth replaying the game again, to see it more crystal clear. I got this during black friday deals, afraid that they would sold out online, I somehow found a copy, or maybe last copy at my local Best Buy at black friday price. I feel that I hit the jackpot. During the time i was going to buy online, and best buy had it sold out. so I was out of luck then. The game is worth it, even for older generation to newer generation.

    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!

    Everything Red Dead in one package

    The Red Dead Game of the Year edition has everything you would want from Red Dead Redemption including the base game and the fantastic Undead Nightmare DLC expansion. Easily over 50 hours of gameplay and the single disc makes this the best version to get. Xbox One backwards compatibility means you put this disc in an XB1 and the system downloads the game and expansion files from the Xbox Store which means you have to wait a while as it does not copy from the actual disc. You will need to keep the disc in the XB1 in order to play the game. Great open world 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.

    Western masterpiece from Rockstar studios

    Red Dead Redemption is a 2011 game developed by Rockstar and was released on the XBOX 360 and PS3. The game is an open world western title based in the early 1900s in the Texas and Mexico region. This package comes with the excellent DLC campaign Undead Nightmare and is backwards compatible for the Xbox One. In fact the Xbox One version features higher resolution textures for the game. Since Red Dead Redemption was never released on the PC, this is the ultimate way to play Red Dead Redemption.

    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.

    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.

    I recently purchased an XBOX1X and needed to get a few games for it. This was on sale and I've always wanted it since the days of my 360. In fact, this is actually a 360 game with some upgraded graphics to run in 4K. The game is definitely not current generation graphics even though they were upgraded for 4K. The game is definitely fun based on what I've played so far and I'm looking forward to finishing and then moving on to RDR2.

    Red Dead Redemption takes that Grand Theft Auto formula and turns it into an epic western adventure that would make John Wayne and Clint Eastwood jealous. The gameplay is simple and easy to pick up and play. The story is deep and engrossing that it will keep you engaged for hours. The good thing about this is it is that it will play on an Xbox One orXbox 360 and is the complete version with all the DLC.

    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!

    I never played RDR when it came out but when I found out that a GOTY edition was released for $20 I jumoed on it quick. It's just like GTA but in old western time. I really enjoyed the different characters and being able to use the old school guns and shooting people's faces off! I also liked the Undead Nightmare DLC that it came with its an entire new campaign and horde mode. What I didnt like was the long horse riding scenes when doing missions and how long the scenes took to skin animals. Overall I highly recommend this game

    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.

    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.

    I didn’t play this when it first came out. Wrapped up in some other games at the time- but would hear about how fun it was from others. When RDR2 came out, all the hype and all the talk about how cool it was prompted me to pick it up. I loved it, so when I saw that this was now backwards compatible w the Xbox 1 I decided it was time to see how the story ends (as RDR2 is a prequel to this one).

    Although this is a gift, I played this when it originally came out and was one of the few games I strived to complete 100%. The setting, characters, and gameplay are top notch. It's more than just GTA in a western setting. This is a must play, in my opinion, and making it backward compatible with the Xbox One was a great idea (remastering it would have been a brilliant idea, however). Well worth your time. Buy it!
