At first I was scared that Rockstar adding zombies to Red Dead Redemption would come off as silly. After seeing the first four screens for the Undead Nightmare downloadable content, I'm just scared.

It's one thing to be surrounded by zombies in a modern setting, where weapons are readily available and even the most ordinary household item becomes a deadly weapon. The thought of being chased on foot across a deserted stretch of land with no shopping mall in sight gives me the willies.

This is what the rest of the Red Dead Redemption playing world will have to deal with when the Undead Nightmare downloadable content is released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I'll be steering clear of this one.
