Red Dead Redemption: Few More Points


Multiplatform Comparison: Many sites have done video footage comparison between PS3/360. I’m surprised that no one has done any audio quality comparison on a decent home speaker setup. Why not?

Multiplayer Glitches: Even after the recent patches, I can’t play RDR for more than a minute or two before getting booted by a disconnect. The online is completely unplayable. Surprisingly, RDR was working perfectly for the first day. I’m sure this will get ironed out eventually, but it’s annoying. Other PS3 multiplayer games (like MAG) work perfectly for long play sessions, so the problem is clearly not my network or the PS3.

3:10 To Yuma: I watched the 2007 remake based on Rockstar’s movie recommendations. Everything from this movie looked exactly like the game: the towns, the saloon, the sheriff, the farms, the railroad, the weapons, the costumes. Many of the big action scenes from the movies are missions in the game: the stage coach ambushes, saving the horses from the buring barn, etc. These movies were clearly a strong influence.

Game is still great: The random encounters, the side missions, the in-game unlockables, and the characters; everything about this game is excellent and holding up very well.

    Ive been booted a couple of times myself cuz of my internet messin up. It kinda is annoying but it definitly doesnt ruin the experience. Once u get the hang of the games its a blast. Sometimes its even more fun than MW2 multiplayer. R* is the KING of open world games and RDR definitly doesnt disapoint. This is R* best game yet and a strong contender for game of the year.

    FYI: MG2 got perfect scores from IGN.com, Gamespot.com and GT.com……..WTF.

    “The online is completely unplayable” thats too bad for u… I have had no problems what so ever, and neith have any of my friends here locally. I have heard of people having problems if they are trying to play with their European or Australian friends… Maybe it’s a country problem?
    Loving the game.. but still pulled myself away to play some Just Cause 2.. that game is the most under rated game right now IMO.

    I agree with Oly1Kenobi. Too bad for you… I’ve never had any problems with it so it must be your network or internet that keeps disconnecting you!

    Because lot’s of sites have drank the Microshaft “Exclusivity” Kool-aid. MicroShaft will pay for reviews to be BIASED on purpose, they play dirty pool when it comes to getting more customers. Want proof? Just walk into Gamestop and ask for a PS3. EVEN IF YOU GO IN CASH IN HAND TO GET A PS3, THE EMPLOYEE WILL TRY TO STEER YOU TO A X-JUNK 360. Why? Cause Microshaft PAID gamestop a crap load of money to do so.

    As for comparisons, this game rocks on the PS3. Sure the Microshaft Douchebox 180 has a few more bushes in its version, who cares…This game still looks and sounds amazing on the PS3.

    Want proof? Wait till the thunder and lightning roll into town at night on RDR. Chills….

    lol, one of the more active fans on my Kevin Butler fan page works for GameStop and all he does is talk up the PS3 and loves selling it to people. He now has this pic I made as his profile pic, and said they should make it an official ad lol:
