    Undead Nightmare, as a single-player upgrade, is an exceptional bargain for the amount of new gameplay that it provides. But including the highly entertaining Undead Overrun multiplayer mayhem makes this a cannot-miss DLC purchase for Red Dead Redemption gamers.
  2. Nov 5, 2010
    This is a must have for anyone who owns Red Dead Redemption. In case you are wondering, yes it is worth it even if you don't play multiplayer.

    Undead Nightmare is an amazing experience that when you factor in the low price truly raises the bar over anything I have seen in terms of DLC packs in the last couple of years. Keep the zombies coming!

    Undead Nightmare is what downloadable content should be -- a lot of bang for your buck.
  5. Nov 2, 2010
    In all, Rockstar struck gold by releasing Undead Nightmare.
  6. Nov 8, 2010
    In addition to the single player story mode, which, by the way, runs longer than the story mode in many full-priced games these days, let alone DLC expansions, there's a new multiplayer mode included in Undead Nightmare.
  7. Nov 4, 2010
    Undead Nightmare is an exceptional piece of DLC, that not only raises the bar for all add-on content to follow, but also wraps up the truly fantastic experience that is arguably Rockstar's finest work to date, Red Dead Redemption.
  8. Oct 31, 2010
    Offering a new element to Red Dead Redemption, one of this year's best titles, Undead Nightmare refreshes everyone's mind on the title right during award season.
  9. Oct 28, 2010
    Undead Nightmare is an immensely enjoyable and compelling alternate story set within the Red Dead universe, that succeeds in making the open-world feel fresh and different. The story is entertaining and engaging, and just as well-written and produced as the main game.
  10. Nov 8, 2010
    Forget about what you've done during the main game's single player campaign, turn off your suspension of disbelief, and nail those suckers in the head.

    Red Dead's outstanding DLC in a box. Simple as.

    There's enough cool stuff here--undead animals, fanciful new mounts, and fantastic new weapons--that it's among the best game add-ons on 360 to date. [Jan 2011, p.76]
  13. Nov 18, 2010
    Undead Nightmare is exactly what good DLC should be, something brand spanking new added to an already feature-filled game.
  14. Nov 16, 2010
    A new single player campaign and tons of extras make this DLC an essential purchase for all RDR fans.
  15. Nov 16, 2010
    It may not change the experience much but is a great incentive to return to this which is one of the best experiences of this generation.
  16. Nov 9, 2010
    A great criticism to North America's religious and political fanatism, but also a delicious piece of macabre and absurd humor, with lots of references and homages.
  17. Nov 3, 2010
    For ten bucks, it offers an excuse to revisit one of the year's absolute best games and kill zombies.
  18. Nov 1, 2010
    Undead Nightmare is probably the best thing that could happen to Red Dead Redemption. This zombie invasion shows us another side of the Wild West and that side is simply beautiful.
  19. Nov 1, 2010
    Rockstar have created one of the most imaginative and cleverly designed DLC packs this year.
  20. Nov 1, 2010
    Rockstar really knows how to please with Red Dead Redemption and this DLC shows it.
  21. Oct 28, 2010
    Undead Nightmare might not tie-in to Red Dead's overarching story, but as an entertaining journey into an alternate tale set within that rich and compelling universe, it's an add-on that proves utterly indispensable for any self-respecting fan of the game.
  22. Oct 28, 2010
    So much value for a small price. Even those who think that the undead business is annoying should try this one, as Rockstar really delivers something unique and exhilarating to spend your time with.
  23. Oct 28, 2010
    Undead Nightmare completely revises the world of Red Dead redemption. The main quest is funny and really long, and the cooperative multiplayer is a totally new experience for players.
  24. Oct 27, 2010
    Aside from the minor issues that I've mentioned, the only real complaint I can level at Undead Nightmare is that it makes the previous two DLC packs - which were on sale at the same price - look a little bit lightweight.
  25. Oct 27, 2010
    Very few times you can say this about a downloadable content, but with ten hours of one-player campaign, a completely new story, refined graphics and sound and more multiplayer modes, Undead Nightmare is worth every cent it costs.
  26. Oct 26, 2010
    Undead Nightmare is an awesome variant of the main story of Red Dead Redemption, that comes for a very cheap price (considering what it has to offer). The single player experience is long and well done, but the real surprise is the new multiplayer mode. The Horde is the most intense and funny multiplayer mode in this game. No doubts about it.
  27. Nov 2, 2010
    The whole experience is even more remarkable at its price point of $10. Sure, clearing towns might get a little stale and the occasional blip of aimlessness is annoying, but the outstanding writing and attention to detail more than make up for any pockmarks on this putrefied gunslinger.
  28. Nov 1, 2010
    "Undead Nightmare" follows in the tradition of "The Lost and Damned" and "Ballad of Gay Tony" giving gamers more than their money's worth when it comes to things to do. There's about five or six hours of story content, in addition to the wealth of hours you'll spend with the new multiplayer modes.
  29. Dec 29, 2010
    A potent cocktail. [Jan 2011, p.80]
  30. Nov 3, 2010
    Undead Nightmare is a fairly lengthy DLC pack with a bunch of new features. The story is straightforward and there are not a lot of mission types but the Stranger quests, new weapons, new mounts, and the challenges all add much needed variety. The multiplayer additions are nothing too special but they are appreciated and add a few more hours of fun to the whole experience.

If you like tearing zombies down with your friends and waves with increasing difficulty, you should get his DLC, im just talking about the multiplayer part since I have not played the single player campaing. I bought this game 3 weeks ago and this DLC came in the nick of time. Didn't hesitate to get the undead pack wich includes all the dlc.

    I got to wave 26 with 3 other online players, the dificulty till wave 15 was ok, after that I could sense how hard it was to kill even the normal zombies (there are 4 types of zombies) at wave 26 I found myselft throwing dinamite like crazy to get them off me and running and yelling at my room like a 13 year old little girl (which I'm not lol).

    I am only reviewing the multiplayer and will surely update this review when I play the single player experience.

    its fun to free roam as a zombie grunting at people...

    Undead Nightmare picks up where Red Dead Redemption ended (sans the last few missions obviously). Awesome story, music and theme.

Even though it can be cheesy and insane at times, this is how DLC should be made, 800 MS points for a full-length, action-packed gaming experience. Full Review »
