Red Dead Redemption
No thread for this game yet?
I know this is predominantly a PC forum, but the odd console game also gets a nod, and this new release from Rockstar comes out tomorrow.
Official PSN magazine gave it 10/10:
News: Red Dead Redemption review: 10/10 in Official PlayStation Magazine - ComputerAndVideoGames.com
NY Times also raved about it, calling it a tour de force:
Video Game Review - ‘Red Dead Redemption’ Brings Old West to Life - NYTimes.com
This may just be the game that persuades me to finally get a gold live subscription as the open multiplayer sounds fantastic.
Looks good, but I'll wait for the PC version, I heard it was coming later this year.
I can't find the article off the top of my head but there were several claims from Editors that Rockstar tried to bribe several of the larger publications with ad dollars if they reviewed this game positively. As such, there is no way in hell I will read the reviews nor buy this game.
I agree with Sky, I seem to recall hearing it wasn't that great as well as that guy getting fired.
Well the game does LOOK to be pretty amazing honestly. I have yet to try it but the concept, and the videos I've seen from the gameplay around the web are breath-taking. I can only hope they port this to the PC!
I looked that article up after you mentioned it and I didn't see anything too surprising there.
I'm sure that's been going on for years. It's one of the reasons I never take reviews from Gamespot, IGN etc seriously.
That kind of thing isn't a deal breaker for me anyway.
According to wikipedia there's no PC version currently in development, so it's PS3/360 only
I've been waiting a considerable time for a 'good' game set in the Wild West, and this could finally be it. My only concern is whether it does indeed make it onto the PC, and if it does, will it have terrible porting issues like Rockstar's last couple forays.
RDR uses the same RAGE engine and Euphoria animation engine as GTA IV.
Plus R* Toronto did the PC port for GTA IV, did a pretty good job, so it should be easy enough to do it again.
Yup let's keep our eyes for when they announce the move!
