* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: ''RedDeadRevolver'' had a great soundtrack and atmosphere, but the gameplay, while fun, didn't really stand out from the crowd. ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'', however, features a beautiful and wide-open world to explore, much more to do, and an arguably better storyline, while losing none of its predecessor's strengths.

Added DiffLines:

* PolishedPort: The backwards compatible version released for Xbox One, while keeping the visuals mostly the same, greatly improves the game's framerate, which could dip pretty low on the original hardware. This is especially impressive because the compatibility is achieved via emulation, and the fact many other backwards compatible 360 games actually run worse on the One.

Added DiffLines:

** Shooting at certain NPCs will make them hostile. Sounds reasonable, right? Well, try averting a bandit raid on Armadillo and not deal with the angry NPCs you might have accidentally shot at during the gunfight. It gets really annoying when the enemies seem to purposefully situate themselves in front of the NPCs.
* Sometimes, the navigational pathing for your horse can leave you locked on certain patches of terrain and even send you off a steep cliff to your deaths, no matter how much you try to steer.

* ReplacementScrappy: [[spoiler:Jack Marston. Quite a few players see him as completely lacking his father's gritty charisma, especially in his OneLiners, and therefore find him annoying to play.]]

** Colonel Agustin Allende of the corrupt Mexican regime, despite being from peasant stock himself, brutalizes the common people. Allende uses violence as a common tactic, with executions being common. His economic policy is to keep the people poor, starving and without hope. He also routinely has girls abducted to serve as sex slaves for himself or his men.

** "And thus John Marston, one of the great legends of the West, [[SuperDrowningSkills drowned in five inches of water."]]



* WhatAnIdiot: When in Mexico, you kind of have to wonder how John didn't think ahead enough to get that [[spoiler:going back to the Mexican army after having saved Abraham Reyes, the number one person they wanted dead, couldn't possibly end well for him. While he does suspect that [=DeSanta=] is lying about having found Bill and Javier, he still falls head first into his trap.]]

** It's possible to travel to West Elizabeth in the main story before you've progressed that far. Become Wanted by the police and let them chase you to the river behind [=MacFarlane's=] ranch (usually by the waterfall works best) and surrender at the cliffs there. Behold; you will be put in the Blackwater jail. (The only way to get back is by using a stagecoach.) Enjoy catching the black stallion or gathering valuable pelts you'll need for certain side missions or 'Challenges' long before you're supposed to be able to.
