Summary

Red Dead Redemption is an open-world, third-person, action-adventure game set at the tail end of the American West West era. Action takes place in the first few years of the twentieth century and revolves around the choices that the protagonist, former outlaw John Marston, is forced to make due to his blemished past. The game features a morality system assigning honor and fame points generated through the player's choices. It also features Wild West themed mini-games, new targeting and cover systems, extensive horse riding abilities, a wealth of period specific weapons and more than 40 huntable animals.

While this game has gotten a lot of positive review from fans and critics, which I can understand as it is a good game, I don't think its that great at all.


What I mean is that while the gameplay and story was pretty interseting it did get dull after a few hours of playing.


I would give the story a 8 but it would be better to just watch it on youtube instead for playing it just for that. If you don't fall for the gameplay or the missions so much than this game will not work for you like it didn't work for me.


So in summary, its a good game but not one that I liked or would try to play again anytime soon.

Rockstar has not only delivered a kick-ass take on the Wild West era but they've done it with a finesse that satisfies every need of anyone who has ever fantasised about being a cowboy. Unless of course, your visions are based solely on Brokeback Mountain, in which case you may be disappointed. There’s cattle herding, duels, hunting, breaking in horses (not like that) and much, much more to keep you in the saddle for hours.

So yes, the action rocks bells. But I still can’t help but feel that, for me, it’s the less familiar elements that help to make Red Dead Redemption the best game of 2010 thus far. There’s an early mission where you have to herd cattle with your horse in the middle of a storm, and if you cock things up you’ll have to watch as the cows plunge over a cliff to their deaths. It’s very, very odd – and yet even this failure feels remarkably fresh. At other times it’s just the rich atmosphere that wins you over – a random encounter with a laudanum addicted girl in the wilderness, or even just the feeling you get as you ride across the land in the pissing rain.

To succeed where other Western games have failed, Red Dead Redemption deftly recreates a sandbox playground of a tumultuous historical period swept away by technological progress. The game perfectly captures the expansiveness of frontier life and the gritty gunplay of spaghetti westerns, rightfully earning its place alongside the great Western films and the best Rockstar games.
