Red Dead Redemption 2 is Finally on PC - How Does it Fare?
Post by Steve Farrelly @ 09:59am 30/06/10 | 42 Comments
Rockstar Games' Red Dead Redemption was the strongest selling title for the month of May, according to a report by analyst Wedbush Morgan, who put sales of the title across PS3 and Xbox 360 in all territories at generating some $115 million (US), with 1.8 million copies sold.

According to Gamesindustry.biz, the next big May sales came with THQ's UFC Undisputed 2010 and Super Mario Galaxy 2; two games worth their sales mettle, which helped prove the strength of both new IPs and strong marketing (in Rockstar Games' sake) in the success of RDR.

In case you missed it, here's our Red Dead Redemption review.

i've put a feew hours into this game and am like 19% of the way through it..

there is so much s*** you can do aside from the missions relating to the main story

and multiplayer is cool i just need to get a mic, it's pretty retarded playing multiplayer co-op with no way to communicate with the other people you're trying to co-operate with lol

I highly doubt that figure of 118 million sold, according to Wikipedia the top selling game on console of all time is Wii play at 27.38 million, and I don't think RDR would be selling that many copies, as much as I love the game.

I bought it... I'm taking it back tomorrow. It's a peice of s***. The single player is boring and most of the quests are so lame it's not worth the waste of time. Multiplayer is hopeless, there is an automatic lock-on tool which mean you hit the target 100% of the time.

I would only recommend this game to the unemployed or retired. You'll waste lots of hours doing nothing with this game.

97c profit per copy?
You sure it isn't 1.8 million sold?

You can also turn the auto-aim off, numbnuts.

Posted 11:28am 30/6/10
I've been playing without auto-aim - I actually think it's easier to score headshots with it off, thus far more enjoyable
paveway

i'm too gumby with the sticks to play without the autoaim, that's consoles for you though

i do give it a go sometimes i'm getting better slowly but yeah

Auto aim on, select target, flick thumbstick + up fire. instant head shot.

i'd be f***ed if MW2 didn't have some kind of auto aim either.

The fact console games have auto aim as an option just shows the controls are fail :P

Yeah, the day one of these modern consoles supports keyboard+mouse as a proper input method for all games on the platform is the day I buy one.

I was once very anti console fps when I was into pc gaming. Now its like second nature with the sticks.

Most people just don't take the time to learn.

Now back on topic, I've never played RDR but I've also heard its boring as bats***. And I haven't really enjoyed a gta game since vice city.

I find myself having less and less time to put into sandbox games, that's why i usually end up playing with something quick and meaningless for a cheap thrill...

Teq knows where that line is going.

Didn't like GTA4 either. Slow and boring. Playing BadCompany2 at the moment and it is way more enjoyable than RDR. Oh great you can play poker and collect flowers in RDR... Who gives a s***.. thank god for EB's 7 day return policy.

paveway
Posted 02:08pm 30/6/10
so basically what you're trying to say is you're retarded and your opinion in this thread is pretty much pointless as you don't like the style of game in general?
WetWired
Posted 03:27pm 30/6/10
I concur with the above statement
bjp
Posted 04:08pm 30/6/10
Yes, my opinion on the game differs from you. Well spotted.

I haven't gotten into it yet, but it does start alot slower then the traditional GTA games.

ZOMG RDR IS SO S***, GRAN TURISMO 5 IS GOING TO BE SO MUCH BETTER

might i ask, why did you buy it in the first place if you hate sandbox rpg games?
bjp
Posted 06:23pm 30/6/10
It looked like a good game from the outset. As mentioned it has lots of content in it, side games, things to play etc.

But as i've noted, the side things a s*** house and the multiplayer is poor when you've playing against a bunch of guys who don't even need to aim, they can just point their gun at you and you get hit 100 times out of 100.

So year i've been disappointed by it. And f*** me some of you c**** are little sissy's. Oh boo hoo someone didn't like it.

lol, you're the one crying about how much you hated so much you're returning it and admitting you purchased something from EB is instafail.

Not crying champ, offering an opinion... and EB price match and offer a 7 day return policy so I have no problem buying there. $74.99 for RDR as opposed to their advertised 109.95.

I hope you all enjoy playing it.
paveway
Posted 10:05pm 30/6/10
yeah bro i drive a skyline, it's in my avatar pic. well done

if you didn't like gta4 why buy a game that is pretty much exactly the same as gta4 - even made by the same people funnily enough

well done again

I just came in here to say f*** EB.

That 7 day return policy don't mean jack if you like the game.

It's like saying "here you go, have this overly expensive game for 7 days, if you like it, we'll f*** you in the ass, if you don't like it, someone else will and we'll f*** them in the ass".

You've got yourself to blame if you go out to buy a game purely based on hype and a pretty cover.

Whilst you're raging at the prices @ EB... you might want to take the time to consider that they price match too...

payin RRP is for suckers...
(and hate the 7-day return policy if you want, but if you aren't SURE about that $80-100 game, gl with your paperweight if you bought it elsewhere and now hate it.)

There are 2 things that i hate in this world besides Eb:

America and Sarah Jessica Parker. To put Eb up there with them means there's no way in hell i'll go to them even for a price match, to say the least.
