I've Been Playing this game for about 2 days now. i love it, the spech, the dialouge, the gameplay, the guns, the outfits, and the storyline, let me set this out for you easily. This of of IGN: The Wild West; the great open plain. Dusters and saddle sores and bar fights; hard women and filthy men trading blows in the middle of a prairie field – this is the world of Red Dead Redemption, one of the finest video games ever produced. With it, developer Rockstar San Diego has deftly paid homage to a genre of storytelling at once familiar to fans of 'westerns', but also subverting it with a gamers' mentality – turning rough-riding and cattle herding into an engrossing gaming experience.

It's all too easy to drift into delicious hyperbole when dealing with a game so polished and considered on every front, just as it's easy to drift off into endless lists of Red Dead Redemption's manifold features. We'll resist and instead point you towards IGN's previews and features. However, perhaps one point should sit above all others when considering this review – and your possible purchase: Red Dead Redemption is arguably the finest game Rockstar has ever crafted.

The design ethic is unified and utterly convincing throughout, starting with the stoic and sarcastic lead character, John Marston – a family man who turned his back on the looser, criminal lifestyle – a past that's painted across his scarred and weathered face. Marston is coerced into working for the government, cleaning up the last of the outlaws he used to ride with. As we learn, however, there's more at play than simple election promises; 'redemption' is indeed a key theme – as is the protection of his family and lifestyle.

The turn of the last American century sets a perfect backdrop for the action (and inaction) that follows. The introduction of the motorcar, the first tentative steps towards flight and the gradual spread of industry all play off the horse-and-cart tropes we identify with classic westerns, forming a brilliant mix of old and new. That said, you'll be spending the vast majority of your game time pounding the dust on horseback or riding shotgun (in the classic sense) between Mexican arroyos and dry, fly-bitten ghost towns. The hook is, of course, that Red Dead Redemption is built formally around a (take a deep breath and wait for it) 'Grand Theft Auto' structure, constructed using Rockstar's own R.A.G.E. engine and imbued with shocking physicality and detail through beautiful integration of Euphoria's 'NaturalMotion' animation and AI technology.



And here is my opinion: The storyline does not make sense much at the start and the names and towns are confusing but as soon as you get on that horse and get taken to fort mercer you'll get it all, you found your mission, you found your town. do everything to protect it. So what do you guys think about it!?
