"GOTY i love it"
5 stars"

i didnt think that i would like red dead redemption but then the first time i played it i fell in love with it. i love this game it has great graphics, great storyline and it's great fun. The fun part is the free roaming and it never gets tiring. Lasso is my favorite weapon. i just loove hog-tieing someone and just leaving them in the train tracks and just waiting for them to get splatered. GOTY. must buy for all gamers. five stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Sandbox style play with gorgeous visuals and cowboy motif. "
5 stars"

Red Dead Redemption is one of those games that's plain fun. Being set in 1911 American West and Mexico, you play as the John Marston and fill the shoes of an ex-outlaw looking at a shot at redemption in order to keep his family safe.

The game itself plays smoothly, has incredible graphics and a large variety of missions within the rough n' tumble, saloon brawling world. There are no motor vehicles for you to control, but there are plenty of horses and mules to select from with an interesting stamina system. Obvious comparisons can be made with the GTA series (Not surprising as they have the same developer) but it feels a lot more involving, making the player connect to the story in a way that's rare for games these days.

Speaking of story, the characters are memorable, to say the least. Each have their idiosyncrasies and feel like interesting people to interact with in the time of the adventure. It's beyond gripping, keeping you on mission after T. On top of the already impressive storyline though, is the honor system (do good things like stop a horse thief and the bar increases, kill the lawmen and let the criminal get away to see it decrease). It determines whether your character is actually a reformed individual or whether it's a classic case of ‘old habits dying hard’ adding another layer to the entire game.

The multi-player is the best I've seen in a while. Ranking system with loads of challenges to overcome, such as hunting, sharpshooting, or perhaps taking on gang hide-outs is more your thing. It doesn't matter, keep playing and you will level up. Public games lets you tackle the ol' west with your amigos and gunsling through the towns, giving you the ability to create a posse and roam with your friends and strangers alike. If private games are more your speed, that's an option as well giving a lot of possibilities for all kinds of people, ie. you can level up on multi-player by your lonesome if you wish.

Overall, this game is extremely well made and a tour de force of Rockstar. Stunning visuals, nearly limitless play and extreme amounts of fun with guns, a lasso and a lot of dynamite. ;D

Easily 5 stars and highly recommended.

Awesome game. Stunning visuals, a good story and plenty of stuff to do. The wild west was a nice change from the Grand theft auto citys.

Description

Red Dead Redemption is a Western epic, set at the turn of the 20th century when the lawless and chaotic badlands began to give way to the expanding reach of government and the spread of the Industrial Age. A follow up to the 2004 hit Red Dead Revolver, this game tells the story of former outlaw John Marston, taking players on a great adventure across the American frontier.

Red Dead Redemption features an open-world environment for players to explore, including frontier towns, rolling prairies teaming with wildlife, and perilous mountain passes - each packed with an endless flow of varied distractions. Along the way, players will experience the heat of gunfights and battles, meet a host of unique characters, struggle against the harshness of one of the world’s last remaining wildernesses, and ultimately pick their own precarious path through an epic story about the death of the Wild West and the gunslingers that inhabited it.
