im not sure what yatzee is talking about when it comes to glitches, maybe our playing it on the PC, anyways, i have found very few glitches, the only one i can account for is the one where you park your horse on a animal corps and it skips the skinning animation.
and im playing on xbox

That was a bit harsh, I played it on ps3 and it didn't glitch once. And if you don't like the auto-aim training wheels, take them off in the menu you big softcock! It's not hard!

I loved the review..and the Editors review of it as well.

Tarnation..made me LOLZ.

The hunting didn't take me ages,but while I was hunting up near Tall Trees,there were more cougars than Sex and The City..

The hell is with those damned Corleones video. Shut it down already...

The control scheme works, judging by your comment you haven't played the game and you are taking everything Yahtzee said literally. I mean this with high offense, You're and idiot.

You're a troll who seems hellbent on insulting everyone in this thread. Why take criticisms of this game so personally? Did you work on the dev team?
No I haven't played it, I was merely reacting to Yahtzee's review. I take everything he says with a grain of salt. That doesn't matter to you though, as you also insulted another guy who actually did play the game, just because you disagreed with him.
Reported.

I enjoy it when the peons take offense. Report all you want this account was made specifically for insulting peons. I won't ever use it again because I don't find hyper-criticism entertaining. Please report me a few more times to save me the trouble of deleting the account.

Nice Simpson's reference (Purple monkey dishwasher)!

yea i had a problem with the skating thing it happenend once for like a fraction of a second i also hate when you fall over while drunk it takes you awhile to get back up and then your drunk has worn but overall i love this game

finally got to play the game!

except...hmm does he not realize you can make camp and save/quick-travel? haha

Great review however im still going to buy it whens its ported to PC and the price comes down.

Damn those cute mountain lions

I always feel bad when i kill a animal in this game and then skin it

It also makes it worse that jac... er... john has a tendency to insult it while skining it.
Press y to skin, john stabs into it
John: "You stink"
Me: "Was that really called for?"

I completely disagree with that review

Yay, simspons reference! :D

10-15 hours of game play is no where near enough, especially for a Rockstar game. I was very disappointed by how short it was because I loved the game, the story-line was brilliant. And duh Yahtzee, when does Rockstar ever make a game that isn't just another take on GTA? They may have just named Canis-Canim-Edit or Bully which is now the idiot's term for it 'Grand Theft Bicycle'. See, I can be just as funny a cynic.

I love the people who watch a ZP review and base their purchase decision off that. If I didn't play any games Yahtzee didn't like, I wouldn't have a fifth of the games in my library.

I love the people who comment about their love for the people who watch a ZP review and base their purchase decision off that. Its like they think they're somehow different from the masses and are worthy of note.

(bad mood, should have just shut my post)

i had the same problem with mountain lions as well, i think they have cloaking devices or something.

or their ninja xD

hahaha Yahtzee gives a good argument like a good critic should :) but people who live and die off what he says is just a very funny thing to think about :p

Yes, well I've never played RDR. Huge fan of GTA3, loved Vice City and San Andreas, and eagerly awaited GTA4. Yet when it came around I was so sick of cops and robbers, organised crime and the rest of the GTA framework that I didn't play GTA4 for more than 6 hours. I like the idea of RDR, but have a terrible suspicion that its just cops and robbers in cowboy hats and chaps. We'll see.

I'm way late to this one, but I felt I should say that I loved Yahtzee's skullfuck of one of my favorite games. That sounded strangely homoerotic...

Anyways, keep it up Yahtzee. Not that you'll ever read this. Or give a shit.

IT'S A TRILOGY IS first GUN, second is RED DEAD REVOLVER, and RED DEAD REDEMPTION is third.

Funny review. I never had any problem with the engine or with the controls. Maybe I haven't been spoiled by games though. The only controls complaint I have is that, yeah, tapping 'x' to sprint was an annoyance, but a mild one.

I like how he snuck in that it was beautifully written and beautifully atmospheric. It was ^_^

two things
i wonder how yathzee feels about the new dlc coming for red dead redemption feturing the zombies and i wonder if he figured out u could take off the auto aiming
ps if anyone mentioned the auto aiming before forget the last part

Ok, obviously these videos are just for fun, but he's way off on this one - his first problem being that he played the PS3 version...

-You can toggle auto-aim
-You can quick travel, which kind of defeats the point since the world is so gorgeous.
-The physics (euphoria) is the best part of the game.
-Yeah, you have to tap A (or X) to run, but when your gun is out, which it should be during a firefight, you run automatically, ass.
-And the controls are fine. I can't remember a time playing RDR (GTAIV) when I felt out of control or hindered by the controls at all.

By the way, I enjoyed the ninja cougars/bears/boars. They made the wilderness tense.

To be fair, you don't have to push a button to run with a weapon draw. But it doesn't stay drawn except in undead night mare :\

I totaly agree plus there are the new patches to make the game less bugier.
PS: I kind of felt scared when I got attacked by a bear when I was bear hunting in the middle of the night in a bloody forest. ;)

He's right. Ironically, there is no goal in this game; money HAS no value because you can always jack horses if you get BORED of yours, paying for health/weapons is also pretty retarded; but this IS Rockstar, the developer of 'why the fuck would I want to go to a gun store; cops have guns and there's a precinct right there if you know what I mean, but this game is still more addictive and fun than WOMEN'. Still, RDR feels too much like a polished GTAIV in the Wild West with a few new gameplay mechanics.

1. If the traveling is so long fast travel, if you don't want to because it breaks immersion then deal with it. Getting places takes time when you have that big world you like.

2. Complaining about auto aim when you can turn it off? Seriously?

3. Insulting the Euphoria engine when it's one of the most impressive physics engines in the business? I don't get how one can complain about a feature that gives you the joy of shooting a guy on his horse who then falls and gets his foot caught in the stirrup.

4. Spending 4-5 min bitching about a game( including 2 things you can easily fix and 1 that deserves no complaints) is bad enough. However the fact you spend the last 20 seconds giving the game praise is what pisses me off more. It's like if I commented on your video saying, "Hey you Limey motherfucker all you do is bitch like a smug asshole who thinks he's so smart when he's actually a stupid twat" and then followed with "but I did have a good laugh or 2". It just doesn't work.

5. I did laugh at the mountain lion part though.

One thing I had a huge problem with was the old timey duels.

It forces you to use all six of your shots, which just always made John Marston look like a superhuman retard. Why not just one shot? It looks cooler, and it's fun to shoot your opponents in the nuts

Oh, and the gun always puts itself away, which is lame for when your trying to clear a house.

I remember this game, I couldn't get to the first town because I always fell through the map. And the pause screen text never came up, not once.
