Rockstar Does it Again.
Once again Rockstar have performed. Red Dead Redemption is a huge, beatiful open world experience with never a dull moment. From hunting armadillos to bloody shootouts Red Dead has it all. Just some of the various side missions include poker, blackjack, horseshoe, nightguard, bounty hunter, hunter etc etc etc. On top of that why not go and take a few shots of whisky at your local saloon. Just don't try riding your horse after it. You also have random encounters with people in the wilderness ranging from tracking down cannibals to picking rare flowers. Of course let's not forget the deep and immersive main story which rockstar never seem to falter on. Gameplay is smooth once you get used to it which only takes a short while. With a handy weapons wheel (think mass effect 2) Theres no more scrolling through endless lists of weapons. And yes gameplay is slightly similar to grand theft auto but let me be clear this game is not a grand theft auto of the old west. It can't be compared to other games as it stands in a league all of its own. I haven't tried multiplayer yet but I'm sure that will keep me just as enthralled as the story mode. My final words are if you do not have this game then do yourself a favour and order it now. Guaranteed a good 100+ hours at least in single player never mind multiplayer.
