I've been playing for 3 hours, and the missions so far are terrible. like bunching up caddle, "Breaking in" Horses. Ugh wil the terrible missions ever end? Should I stick with it?

And just a question how many missions are in Red Dead?

Stick with it... the game is just teaching you how to play and showing you the "neat" things you can do in the game. You'll get to the more fun stuff soon, as with almost any game made by Rockstar.

It does get better. It's just that the beginning missions are a bit too slow!

Keep playing man smile.gif

No, the entire game is rabbit hunting and farm work. The pictures of gun fights on the back of the box are lying to you.

The starting missions in GTA are also boring, just stick with it.

I never suggested it was, just because a game looks interesting, doesn't mean it is. How do you think games are sold in the first place..

They're no where near as terrible compared to Red Deads starting missions confused.gif

But I will stick with it smile.gif

What? So you don't think there are gun fights in it at all?

Its a thing called "pacing," its introducing the characters and story (not to mention gameplay mechanics) first before throwing the action at you later, so that it eases you into the game nicely.

was it worth all the suffering of the terrible starting missions?

Why is it terrible? If you weren't hunting rabbits, you'd be just be doing the same easy tutorial stuff anyway. Its the same for every R* game.

You need to learn the basics of the game, such as controlling your horse and how to use Dead Eye and so on. It also introduces the world and the story, including many of the important themes such as the industrialization of the wild west and civilization of the society. Its a much slower paced and more thought provoking game than your typical GTA, so if you're not ready for the quieter setting or the pacing, then you probably shouldn't play it.

Once you get missions from this guy called Johnson, things should start picking up for you anyway cause now you're shooting dudes. MacFarlane's mission line is the last of those farming ones, so you needn't worry.

At this point, I'm actually not sure why R* still makes the tutorials expand through so many missions in their games. Anybody that has been playing their games for years generally catches onto the controls and gameplay elements faster than what R* thinks they do.

As for Red Dead Redemption, it does start to pick up, but I agree that the "tutorial" missions at the beginning are kind of tedious, if not quite unnecessary. Then again, I suppose they might help some people grow closer to characters like Bonnie.

You "suffered" playing RDR's tutorial missions? dozingoff.gif

Just quit playing NOW. Your attention span is pathetic. You obviously don't enjoy the finer things, like pacing, variety, roleplay, etc. (which, frankly, is your loss). Saints Row or CoD might suit an uninspired sperg like you better. lol.gif

So according to this, no game should ever be slow and there should be constant EXPLOSIONS AND GUNFIGHTS PEW PEW AWESOME YEAH. No.

I imagine you're the kind of guy that doesn't like cut-scenes either. Christ man, just lay back, enjoy the game, soak in the Western feel, you're missing half of the game if you're not soaking in the atmosphere. Like Valor said, go play CoD or something, I'd advise you not to judge a game on how many explosions you can see.

But to answer your question, when you get into it there is a lot of gunfights and such. Sorry for being a c*nt but that really annoyed me haha.

Wasn't boring to me. I got through the beginning pretty quick. If you've been playing for 3 hours, you should be on the Marshal Johnson missions now. That's when sh*t gets real.

This couldn't have gone in the Official Topic?


Anyway, I really liked the starting missions as the characters aren't boring at all. I didn't mind breaking horses and herding because I loved Bonnie's chatter.

I think the start is great at dictating the pace. It's not a FPS where it's action from the get go. It needs time to build up and get the player comfortable with the basics. GTA is structered the same way.

Breaking in horses and herding is the RDR equivalent of tagging, driving someone somewhere and whatever in GTA.

RDR is a fantastic game. Once you're done with that when you should get undead nightmare it starts off with a bang

I think the trick with RDR, and GTA for that matter, is to take your time and appreciate the surroundings rather than just charging from mission to mission. A tremendous amount of work goes into breathing life into the worlds that Rockstar create. Perhaps do some of the side quests and challenges in between missions.

As Bruce Lee would say: "Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory."

I had the same problem with RDR really and yeah, the first missions just teach you the basics, however in my opinion it doesn't become better.

I quit in the Mexico part because I totally lost my interest in the "story". Every missions seems to be the same and there doesn't seem to be much progress in the game as you move from town to town doing the same shoot-outs over and over again.

I actually liked the introduction to RDR. I actually walk around the town, not sprinting with a horse and knocking everything down.

Simply put, RDR isn't your game. If you really think that shooting some rabbits and herding cattle is "terrible" then that's clear evidence you should never play RDR.

As others have said, go play Call of Duty.

Honestly I had fun with RDR from start to finish. That cattle herd mission where you have to stop them from running in the thunderstorm is one of the best missions ever. biggrin.gif This thread is reminding me of a video on YouTube that some guy put up saying that RDR sucked because you can only use horses. suicidal.gif

Red Dead Redemption is one of the most amazing games ever made. But, I have to say, the missions involving the herding of cows are the most boring and stupid missions that I've ever played.

I hate games that are designed to be tutorials! If you want to give them a tutorial make it separate from the actual gameplay.
