Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare Pack

Just when you thought, it was all over for the game Red Dead Redemption, the folks at Rockstar Games bring out a wickedly spectacular twist to the old west. This DLC is more than worth the price of the download, it adds some frantic fun to the Red Dead Redemption world.

John Marston is back and this time with a supernatural twist. Marston’s family is infected with some odd plague that seems to turn the infected into flesh-eating zombies.

Setting out to find a cure and to stop the spread of this zombie plague town by town and grave yard by grave yard. Fighting the zombie hordes can be tough, with limited ammo your best friend when getting a mob of these creature heading your way is that ability to slow time down. Plan your shots, because that old try and true mantra in any zombie film or story holds true here. Shoot them in the head. Hits to the body will slow zombies down and you will just waste a lot of precious ammo that way.

These creatures wander about in the towns that they knew so well in life. Beware though; when they become aware of your presence, they come running at you in packs. They are relentless and in great numbers can over take you, if you let yourself get surrounded.

There are several different types of horrors. The standard zombie, then big ones that get close and rush in to knock you down. Then there is the freaky one that skitters about on all fours. I have no idea why, but those are the most disturbing to me. The plague of zombie infection does not stop there though. Animals are affected as well. There are zombie wolves, bears, and other critters too. Think that is cool, How about saddle up on a zombie horse?

The over all look and sounds have been enhanced for this very special DLC.
Just something about the color palette and the lighting that the game designers created for this DLC, it is spectacular; in mood and over all look. Moody shadows and rays of light peeking through cloud cover and the ghostly to blood-tinged moon in the sky. All of it combines in a symphony of physiological terrors that make it a true treat.

The dialogue and cut scenes are nothing but good fun and the designers of course stuck in several clichés along the way. Like oh wait I will go down this abandoned street by my self unarmed….AHHHHHHHH, of course they are jumped from a dark alley and killed. The dialogue many times is tongue and cheek cliché and it is obviously meant as good fun.

Things do not stop with just a single player experience. Rockstar brings us a full package here including some enhancements for multiplayer. There is Undead overrun….players must hold out against swarm after swarm of the undead hordes. Coolness abounds.

Rockstar delivers more than expected, and truly live up to their company name. So far, they hold the crown as Rockstar’s of the gaming world.

Have fun, play games
