    Hopefully. I hated the original RDR. For more information I suggest you read my metacritic review.

    This was everything I said in my review: "Most overrated game of all time, hands down. I have no idea how RDR manages to receive so much praise when it does almost everything wrong. The controls are clunky and awkward (John Marston controls like a tank). My biggest problem with the controls is that you have to spam a single button to sprint. Why? There's. no reason why a feature like that should exist in ANY game. Moving on, let's talk about its gameplay. The gameplay is generic, repetitive, and uninspired. 99% of the gameplay is running and gunning, which make it no different to 99% of first/third person shooters on the market right now. The few missions that don't entirely consist of running and gunning are either boring tailing missions or fetching quests. And now, without a doubt, the game's biggest flaw: The story. The entire RDR narrative template can be summarised as follows: Find a NPC, spend twenty hours doing favours for them, and then they will provide you with a TINY hint of progress towards your goal. Repeat this cycle ad nauseum for fifty hours, and you have RDR's story. And now, undoubtedly one of the game's biggest flaws: the lack of the ability to swim. Why can't you swim? It's such a basic feature that any sandbox shooter should have. To. are it even worse, Rockstar rubs in the fact that you can't swim by using bodies of water as a way of stopping you from accessing later parts of the game. So annoying. And finally, the graphics: They looked like ****, even for 2010. It might have been acceptable for the 360 and PS3 but come on, people, have some standards."

    I agree the game is overrated. But, I loved Red Dead Redemption because I heard nothing about it. I can over look swimming in the game. It also will make an appearance in RDR 2. Did you like the new God of War?

    I haven't played it yet. Hopefully RDR 2 will fix all the problems I had with the original RDR.

    Well, the new one is critically acclaimed for how great it is. The map is locked off until story progression, you cannot swim, and it has you just hack at enemies with the Levitation Axe and go here to collect this to access this, but wait, you, now, have to do this. I love that game, too. But, you can't boil down a game like that. Call of Duty is pretty much the same for every release. Name one game that is not repetitive. Every game is repetitive but if the story is engrossing, it will become less visible. It is about the characters in the games. For me, every character in RDR is memorable with flaws and the story is interesting. But, ultimately, the game is not your cup of tea.

    Too soon to tell. Personally I don’t think so
