The lights are on
First, the Ugly reasons this didn't get a Ten from me two reasons:
1. No Character Creator for multiplayer. That would have sold it for me completely.This game would have rocked had it given some form of Free-Roam Character creation instead of picking from a bunch of different people. Only 2-3 people appealed to me.
2. The issue of rag-doll effect/falling damage effect when fighting faster creatures like the Cougars/Bears. Sometimes you might get back up instantly, sometimes it might take your character 1-2 minutes to get up and by the time you get up...lights out. And Falling on a horse sometimes it didn't matter at what height, your horse might die from falling a small distance or a large distance...and sometimes if you fall you can get right back up/so will your horse when you thought it was dead...
That was my only real issue with this game: Game Mechanics issues and Customization.
Reasons this game got a 9.50 from me:
Between the The Open world activities, The Controls, the Free-Roam mode, the Auto-Aim Assist that was decently done, the Dead-Eye moments in story mode, to the The Dialogue in this game had me saying "Thank you Ma'am" and "Mister" for weeks on end after playing this game it was just that enthralling. I was calling friends Mister ___ and Miss ____ even though I know their first names. This game is awesome.
The characters were lovable. John Marston had to be one of the best Anti-Hero/Main Characters I've encountered. Martson if he hasn't already should be labeled one of the most loved characters of all time in video game history. Rockstar put alot of heart and warmth in him. He had his issues, he had his drama, he could be just like everyone else, but goes against it even if he can get away with it. Story was done very well and had you hoping he would finally make it in the end after all his struggles and problems.
The Story was heavily driven from past movies I loved...I was just waiting for some one to pop up and tell Marston "I'll be your huckleberry". I love how Rockstar uses awesome movies to make their games that much more enjoyable.
This was a positive experience, and awesome with the Zombie DLC. I wish I had more friends who played this game more often so I could do the online achievements/play it online more.
