Amazing game from the start, straight into action, helpful tutorials from the start, dynamics and physics have been greatly improved from GTA 4.
A vast landscape to explore id say too big but still loads of fun to free roam in, atleast 4x bigger than the liberty city map from GTA 4, sadly a let down is that you cant swim! (Basically fall in u die...).
Great amount of missions to complete aswell as side missions, also MINIGAMES!!, for example, shoot a bird (vulture) and you'll trigger a mini game which is fun.
If you love the ragdoll effects from GTA 4 you'll love this, perfected killing body movement, if you shoot him off a horse he may catch his foot on the saddle and the horse will drag him for miles on end. No point to point triggers! all random! Yey, another example, as in the previous rockstar games if you pass a certain point an event will trigger, in this game its all randomized.
Scenario is all greatly designed but yet very very vast, alot of the buildings seen are now exploreable so you can walk in and around, what i found most fun was walking into the back door of a bank, immediate alarm and your wanted :D, a great chase from the sherif and deputies but a little unreal as i took out more marshal (law) than the population of the town...
Recommended to anyone who enjoyed GTA 4 and other western style games, but be warned, gory and blood awaits. i wont give a example as it may put you off buying, and this doesnt mean limbs falling off, no no not that gory lol.
Worth buying, Thx for reading.
