A great game, for sure.
But Undead Nightmare is the single buggiest major release that you'll ever play. Especially nearly 10 year later.

It used to show up if you toggle shipping and store pick up a couple of times. Now it's not working :/

You technically CAN play the DLC through to completion (I just it again back in October), but it's way too frustrating to be worth it. There's a game-breaking bug which causes zombies to spawn without heads after about 10 minutes of play and you're forced to reboot the game. The problem is that many missions take well more than 10 minutes and bosses in the graveyards almost never spawn while this bug is active.

Anyone interested in this deal, don't factor the DLC into the purchase, because you're probably not going to be playing it for long. A real shame, too, because it was really REALLY fun when it was new and working properly before rockstar broke it with an update (good going, guys).

Depends on what you're looking for.

Redemption 1 is more simplistic, but it works (Undead Nightmare DLC excepted, lol). Redemption 2 is more ambitious and offers far more to do with much prettier visuals, but that ambition comes at the price of lots and lots of bugs. 2 also increases the complexity of many things from 1, and for some people the increased complexity is more tedious and kills the fun - for instance, a pelt is a pelt in RDR1, but only three-star pelts are acceptable as clothing/decoration materials in RDR2.

The story for both games is lackluster (don't misinterpret this - the characters/char development are great but the story in each is heavy on the meh factor) but 2 is the weaker story since it takes a bizarre and largely nonsensical detour through the Caribbean and despite being a "Western" doesn't touch the West until maybe the last 3 missions. This also being a rockstar game, there's a MAJOR disconnect between the gameplay and story in 2 (there's a scene where Arthur goes into major crybaby mode and whinges to a nun about wanting to be a good person, but you're going to have him back to robbing and murdering innocents within 5 minutes, I promise). Hopefully the 4th Red Dead game returns to the Revolver-verse or gives us a proper bad-assed outlaw like Micah Bell to play as in the Redemption-verse, as opposed to another whiny puppet playing the lead like Marston/Morgan.

Both 1 and 2 are strong on different merits, but you really can't go wrong either way. ESPECIALLY if you're only spending $10.

I totally agree. That was a horrible overview of what RDR2 is.
I've played both games all the way through and both are awesome. 2 is better in my opinion, mostly because of the visuals, larger world and much more to do. A lot of people will say 2 is a chore game. It's really not that bad -- you can choose NOT to do most chores. Bugs? I don't recall encountering one bug the entire play through. The West didn't come into play until the end? It was there the whole time! Yeah, the island was a twist, but boo-hoo. The game was amazing.
Keep in mind the 2nd game happens before the first one, so some might prefer to play the 2nd game first. It's $40 at Walmart right now.

I also don't agree with Rockstar1009's review for many of the same reasons mentioned. Also, "not being in the west"... Most the game takes place in the west, just not the arrid Thombstone west that's stereotypical of most outlaw movies. The west is shown as more diverse, just like it really is in the states

I got this deal back in 2011 from Best Buy. A great deal back then. Now... Feels like it should be a a bit less but the game itself is still great.
