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.

Massive open world of this game on consoles like Xbox 360 and PS3 is itself an achievement. Other than a very interesting setting this game has a very good gunplay, a gripping story and lots of things to do in this massive world.

Nowhere near as good as Red Dead 2. Much Smaller map and Game play is simple and not as exciting with not as many things to do as in red dead 2

It all plays out like GTA except in 1911. You're sent on an initial, straightforward mission to get you used to the controls and how to move around the huge landscape. The story then branches off into separate areas and you'll soon find yourself working with/for various characters - like the Mexican army or simple ranchers - in the search for information regarding the whereabouts of your old chums. Red Dead Redemption takes you through superb little towns and villages that you can buy stuff from, play games in or simply shoot every one up.

The Western genre has been won. Fans of the Western genre will feel as if they've died and gone to heaven and open-world gamers will be treated to an experience unlike any they've had before. This is a must-buy for any number of reasons, least of all being you'll want to tell people you own this game, as it is sure to become a classic.

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.
