I did not enjoy the game. Way too slow for my taste. I bought it based off reviews and regret the purchase, especially since i went the digital route and now cant trade It. I respect that its a well built game, just not my speed.


I can totally see how somebody would not enjoy this game. Sucks you did digital and cannot return.

Myself, however, I just finished Chapter 6 and I think the game is easily game of the year if not game of the decade. I honestly got a little choked up at points and actually give a damn about characters.

The music is pitch perfect in the game as well.

Like I said I can totally understand somebody not enjoying this game for many reasons but the sheer quality of the game in every regard (whether enjoyable to an individual or not) is undeniable.

I think I'm gonna watch the Wild Bunch tonight. Big Grin

I think its great to see that an epic single player experience can still be t his good and make a shit ton of money... Show the industry that not everything needs to be multiplayer loot crate BS,a story driven game can still be profitable.

I've read mention of the "slow pace" several times, here and elsewhere.

For those who have played Witcher 3, is it similar, or noticeably slower?

I didn't get super far in Witcher, but I found more stuff to do in Red Dead and didn't ever get bored or frustrated in RDR like I did consistently in Witcher 3.

Spoilers, but I really liked this video - it fit with the mood and emotion of the game.

Definitely looking forward to the PC version. Rockstar is doing the last of their updates to GTA V this year, and will be dropping support of it. They have not confirmed a PC port yet, but I fully expect it at some point in the next year since GTA:O was such a ridiculously massive cash cow for them. I have a lot of fun just driving and wondering around GTA online with Safekeeper on (makes it solo online, so I can drive my modded cars around without getting strafed by some clown in a Harrier). I look forward to doing the same in RDRD2. Too bad you console guys don’t have the tools to work around griefers the way PC players can, I know all too well how they love to ruin everyone’s good time.

Honestly, the game seems like a neat mix of Assassin’s Creed 3, GTA V, and the Call of Juarez games, and I enjoyed all of those.

Rockstar is fixing the economy in the online version. This was by far the largest complaint out there. They are lowering the prices of the guns and increasing rewards and other sources of money. It is nice to see a company react so quickly to feedback. Other companies either move very slowly or flat out ignore it. This was addressed in just over a week of the release. They are also giving $250 and 15 gold bars to anyone who has played so far through midnight tonight. So if you have not tried the online portion you should at least log on today and grab the money.

What might have happened is they got too greedy too fast. Prices for stuff in GTA:O went from expensive to "we're pretty sure everyone in this game who's buying stuff has gotten zillions of dollars in modded money anyway, and the rest get to buy shark cards to make up for that."

I am waiting on the sidelines, cautiously optimistic. But Rockstar is an even bigger offender than EA at this point as far as "pay to win" shit in the MP modes go. If they're willing to yield to "Hey, don't fuck us so hard, so fast without lube!" feedback, that's a good thing, but it's early. There will be more guns and horses and whatever else there is to conceivably sell online in the marketplace over the coming years. They got five years plus out of GTA:O. We're just getting started with this one.

The only reason I give Rockstar a pass on it more than anyone else is because every update is free and there are a lot of updates. I can’t even begin to count how many new vehicles, weapons, clothes and game modes GTA5 added. And that’s in addition to the half dozen or so major updates to the online world. Also pretty much every week there is some event and new races or whatever. Rockstar keeps that game fresh and for me it’s all totally free. Unlike every other company who charges for every DLC and still has micro transactions.

Also it’s possible to get everything by playing the game and it’s really not that much of a grind. I could easily make a couple million in a night and that’s without taking advantage of any glitches. I never once felt like I was getting beat by someone because they had something out of my reach by just playing a few nights and buying it myself.

If someone wants to give rockstar 20 bucks to get a plane two days early then I say let them. They are buying the DLCs for me.

Wonder if Red Box it. I always buy digital. Can't stand discs.

Finished it today (the primary story missions, there is a ton of other stuff).

The Epilogue adds SO MUCH to the first game’s story. Not in needed background but in heart/feeling. All the little menial things you do added to the story greatly IMO.

The final story mission was a little bit of a let down. Not bad just formulaic.

The music was great.

I am not an online player so I cannot speak to that but the single player game is a solid 9/10.

Slower than Witcher. But I don't view that as a negative.

I loved the original. Can’t wait to play this...hearing these reviews has me even more excited


Ditto, I’m finishing up Spider-Man and can’t wait. I loved the first one also.

Are they going to do an undead DLC like the original? I loved catching the four horses of the Apocalypse.
