Battlefield 3 is a great game with some of the best online gaming experiences this year, yet they have some of the most frustrating server issues on the planet. It’s hard for me to imagine that a game like Battlefield 3 (Developed by Dice. Backed by EA) has ridiculous server issues. Like the multiplayer is offline on DAY ONE kind of ridiculous. Or NEVER being put in the same squad as my party. Even worse is when someone from my party is on the other team. The game is blast once I’m actually in a game with everything working! However, that’s like agreeing to having a great tasting cake with only a spoonful of shit as an ingredient.

Red Dead Redemption – Tons of fun!

Red Dead Redemption
The wild west never looked so good.

I’ve been playing some Red Dead Redemption over the last couple days. I was a fan of GTA 4, but I’ve always felt felt the gameplay could be better. Enter Red Dead Redemption. The graphics are stellar. The gameplay is smooth. The voice acting and score is nothing short of spectacular. The wild west has never looked better.

The game is not perfect however. There are some major bugs that to me are inexcusable. This game wasn’t made by some no-name company. This is a product of Rockstar Games. Bugs like being turned invisible to being shot into the air (super jumping from the halo 2 days) should not happen in a game like this. Given, it’s rare that issues come up, but these are major issues and should not come up as often as they do.

Regardless of said issues, Rockstar did make a game that is stellar in almost every way. Red Dead Redemption is very enjoyable. There is a new red eye targeting system that slows down time and let’s you align your shots before you pull the trigger. It’s especially fun when you’re challenged to a draw. Try shooting the gun out of your target’s hand. So satisfying.

Draw
Draw!

If you’re a fan of the GTA series then you definitely need to pick this game up. If not, do yourself a favor and rent this game. It’s tons of fun and it’ll give you an excuse to sit on your ass for a couple hours at a time.
