Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

This is my favorite game add on...EVER. The people at Rockstar worked their magic yet again and made a game that was awesome 800x better! How is it better exactly though? WEELLLLLLL...

First off, They added 6 hours of story to the game. Which isn't that bad seeing as how the pack comes to you in a nice $10 price. Aside from the new story, there are also a bunch of side missions. I played the game on Wednesday from 8am to about 9pm. So about 13 hours plus the time I spent today completing it, I would say there is about 16-17 hours of new content. THAT IS HUGE.

This is not one of the 4 Horses. This is a Night-Mare
Not to mention they added some new Zombie Killing Items. Such as The Blunderbuss, Holy Water, and Zombie Bait just to name a few. Plus there are new mounts in form of the Horses of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and a secret one (which isn't so secret when you look at how to get one of the new outfits in the game).

The Story is well written too and takes more of a light hearted/Cheesy Zombie movie plot that is riddled with Morbid Zombie Comedy (when trying to figure out WTF was going on, one person blames it on the jews.) The gameplay is the same with the added detail you are now fighting zombies instead of Cowboys (or rather cowboy zombies) so you can't just shoot at them and hope they die. OH NO. That will just slow them down and waste bullets. No You must shoot the head off. You would know this if you have seen any zombie movie EVER.

Aww piss. Not again.
Some new game mechanics include a kinda gang turf battle that was in San Andres...Except with zombies, finding missing people instead of hunting people down and killing them, and all the random encounters have changed. My favorite are the cannibals because they keep a zombie as a pet and you can just choose to ignore it or slay both the human and zombie. Also, Bullets are the new currency so you can do missions like "Kill more zombies than someone" for 20 - 40 bullets. I have never seen a gambling thing lower than that.

Aside from all the zany antics, crazy horses, and zombie driven storyline, there is also a new Multiplayer option in which it is basically a "See how long you can survive against the undead hordes" in which there is no winning. Basically you have to rely on teamwork (though most of the time it is every man for himself). The team has to open a coffin to get more ammo since it is rather limited in this match type. Unfortunately, in all my experiences, the people you are playing with will not protect the person trying to open the Coffin. Which was usually me. I don't know if they knew I was trying to get the entire team ammo...either way. If you get on a kill streak you also can get phosphorous bullets which set the undead on fire. WOOOOO.

As mentioned before. THIS IS THE SINGLE BEST VIDEO GAME ADD ON EVER. Since it is just an add on, I am giving this in unconstitutional 10/10. Only because I am basing it on other add ons I have seen for games. If you own Red Dead Redemption and don't have this yet, do yourself a favor and actually get this one. You will not regret it.

Regh out


  1. Yeah I don't think I will have the time to play it so I won't be buying it.

  2. Lesson learned: always blame the Jews.

  3. Awesome I was very interested in hearing more about this DLC. :D
    Thanx for all the info.
