Obviously, if I have a profile on this site, it means that I play video games. I also happen to write, and the two have made a harmonious combination for a hobby. I mainly write FAQs and reviews, and *try* to stick to one of these categories:

-RPG and non-linear adventure games
-Anything with horror or b-movie elements
-Anything unique, obscure, or just plain weird

Sounds broad, but it also means you probably won't see a Super Mario Bros. 3 review from me any time soon.

I've been suffering through Red Dead Revolver for the last couple weeks. I'm finding it quite tedious, repetitive, and sometimes even ridiculous and sloppy. It's stable and playable, but holy shit is it boring. I'm at a point where I want to just stop playing the game, but the voices in my head want me to keep playing and finish it, then possibly write a review for it.

What I'm mainly curious about is how connected this one is to Redemption. Is there a whole lot that carries over from Revolver to Redemption?

Very little from what I recall. The Dead-Eye and quick draw are the only things I can think of.

You're a braver man than I. Revolver was horrible. I think I only made it halfway through because I couldn't stand playing so many missions that seemed to have nothing to do with the story. Hell, at that point I didn't even know what was going on. And that's never a good thing when you're that far.

Yeah, I agree with that. I'm not sure if I'll continue or just cut my losses. Thankfully, I only paid $5 for it.

Saying that Redemption is a huge step up from Revolver is a huge, huge understatment.

I'm the only one who thinks this on HG it seems, but RDR sucks ass. It only really gets compelling right at the end when the endgame and the eventual payoff is actually pretty good.

I'd give RDR a 9/10 in a heartbeat, and I still think it's sickeningly overrated.
