    For $10, anyone who loves Red Dead Redemption or the horror movies should pick this add-on up.
  2. Nov 15, 2010
    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.
  3. Nov 3, 2010
    For ten bucks, it offers an excuse to revisit one of the year's absolute best games and kill zombies.
  4. 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.
  5. Nov 9, 2010
    A treat to behold for fans of the zombie genre or otherwise, this add-on comes recommended to anyone looking for a macabre twist on the Red Dead formula.
  6. Oct 31, 2010
    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!
  7. Nov 18, 2010
    Undead Nightmare is exactly what good DLC should be, something brand spanking new added to an already feature-filled game.
  8. Nov 1, 2010
    Rockstar really knows how to please with Red Dead Redemption and this DLC shows it.
  9. Oct 28, 2010
    This is, frankly, how DLC should be done. Persistent and minor issues with the game engine aside, Undead Nightmare offers a generous amount of polished AAA-grade new material and finally gives fans of the single-player game a compelling reason to dust off their spurs and head back to the ranch.

    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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Oct 25, 2010
    While some of the missions seem uninspired, the fun of Red Dead Redemption is still there. Its colorful characters and fantastic cutscenes are as good as ever, with a wicked sense of humor this time around.
  16. 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.
  17. Oct 26, 2010
    Even though this new story could have been a little more varied in its missions, one can only salute, once again, the talent of the studio. Marvelously implemented, and surprisingly adequate when combined with the western theme, this interpretation of the classic zombie myth is both comprehensive and efficient. The gameplay is profoundly (and interestingly) changed, and as usual with Rockstar, the value for price factor remains its strongest selling point.
  18. Feb 19, 2011
    Those who can't get enough of Red Dead's wild west action or zombies might want to give Undead Nightmare a spin. There's a lot of game here for 800 Microsoft points, and while it's rarely as compelling as the main title, there's still some fun to be had in watching John Marsten shoot zombies in the head.
  19. Nov 1, 2010
    Rockstar have created one of the most imaginative and cleverly designed DLC packs this year.
  20. Nov 2, 2010
    Rockstar may be a bit late to the zombie party, but Undead Nightmare is the best piece of DLC yet for one of 2010's best games.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Dec 29, 2010
    A potent cocktail. [Jan 2011, p.80]
  24. Nov 10, 2010
    There are a lot of things this content pack does well, just like in the main game, but there is also an equal number of things the game does maddeningly wrong, just like in the main game, leading to an experience that is worth having, provided you're willing to put up with some frustrations.
  25. Oct 27, 2010
    This zombie-themed add-on for Red Dead Redemption is the excuse you've been waiting for to don John Marston's boots again.
  26. 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.
  27. Jan 12, 2011
    Undead Nightmare may sound gimmicky at first, but it quickly becomes clear that Rockstar spared no expense creating what is arguably one of the best DLCs of all time. It's not just the sheer amount of content that's included, but also the method in which said content drastically renovates the Red Dead experience in an exciting and meaningful way.
  28. 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.
  29. Nov 15, 2010
    Some may complain about the filler missions, but it's worth spending the $10 to revisit one of the best games of the year!
  30. Nov 25, 2010
    The game may look like Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, but its philosophy is unforgiving, with painfully limited ammo and a foe that can only be taken down with a headshot.

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 »
