Most of the hate was because it was going to change the traditional battle style to something more action-based. Look at this original footage:

RDR is still $60 for a new copy at Gamestop. http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=74710
Used prices don't really count - especially since publishers hate the used game market.
That's why even the cheaper Games On Demand games are still $20-30. That's their current retail price.
Dec 21st 2010 8:39PM ATTENTION EVERYONE:
IT'S PRICED LIKE THIS TO NOT PISS OFF RETAILERS. Seriously, most game sales are still through brick and mortar stores like Gamestop. Undercut them on retail price and they'll stop ordering new copies of your games. Then you're screwed.
Gamestop and other retailers have explicitly threatened this. They may even have contracts saying you can't undercut MSRP.
So there you go guys, mystery solved.

"Quests are grindy!"
DEV: "Well then here are a bunch of well crafted stories to play through."
"Ugh, now we have to grind through stories?"
DEV: "WTF do you want?!"
"...you suck, I quit!" (logs off and proceeds to GRIND through some TV and GRIND through some web sites, and maybe GRIND through a book later.)

I don't think it's better than BG2+expansion overall, but I'd say it has a better story, especially if you have a high Int+Wis character.
The only drawback is that the combat feels a bit clunkier than BG2, but that's not the focus of the game. The setting is also a lot weirder, so it's harder for people to get into.
