Red Dead Redemption User Reviews
Rockstar really have nailed that whole aspect of survival in the Wild West, and there is a definitive “every many for himself” feeling. Some early missions have you doing things that, while minimally connected to the overall goal of the plot, feel rather tedious. But they have plenty of weight within the experience. As it's the West in the 1800s, you should expect to do things like that, as they have meaning in their own way. Everything you do has a meaning in the long run, and Rockstar push the narrative in several directions, offering you a genuine Wild West experience, while also showcas...
Video games have indulged in just about every setting one could think of, but it isn’t common for a story to unfold in the Wild West of America where tumbleweeds plague the streets and bullets seem to be more common than oxygen. Red Dead Redemption takes everything that you would expect to see in the Wild West and somehow manages to throw it all into a masterpiece. Unless you can conjure up a time machine and head back into the early 1900s, you’re stuck with this. But don’t worry, RDR certainly does deliver. Yeeeehaaaaawww!
As you would expect with any western film, our anti-hero John Marsto...
Rockstar Games are more than famous when it comes to bringing truly ground-breaking sandbox games that rival developers can only aspire to. With their release of the long-awaited and heavily anticipated top scoring game; Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar have yet again set the bar incredibly high for the rest of the gaming world. Even more impressive was the recent release of two very commendable DLC Episodes, which happened to be released as "Episodes from Liberty City", which featured The Lost and the Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony. These games, as could only be expected, were massive hit...

Your family's been taken hostage from you by the goverment and the only way you can get them back is by killing the men who use to be your "family" in a lot of ways. Without any choice or even the option of failure you must pick up your guns again and tear the wild west apart to kill your old gang and reunite with your wife and son.
Let me start off by saying Red Dead Redemption is the greatest open world game ever created period. It's better than fallout, it's better than GTA, it's better that oblivion, it's better than fable, it's once again the greatest open world game ever. R* once agai...

Red Dead Redemption is basicly R*'s take on the old west, Grand Theft Auto style. From its sandbox structure to the font used to display the lettering of quest giving characters on the map, Red Dead Redemption makes Grand Theft Auto fans feel right at home.
This isnt just another GTA clone, however. Thrown into the mix is the new Deadeye feature, which is another take on Bullet Time, which can be seen in R*'s Max Payne series. The three levels of Deadeye basicly train you in your gunslinging greatness as the story progresses. Level 1 is simply slow motion, allowing you to effortlessly li...
