5.0 out of 5 stars Immersion Taken To A New Level 24 May 2010
By Carl
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To put this review in context, I've been looking forward to Red Dead Redemption for a long time: it's the only game I've ever pre-ordered. And I am glad I did, because not only is this one of the strongest contenders for Game Of The Year, but it may even be one of (that's 'one of', for the Ocarina fans) the greatest games ever made.

Graphics - Incredible, simply incredible. To call this game beautiful is a disgraceful understatement. Besides Final Fantasy XIII, I can't think of many games which better RDR's graphics, and considering the sheer size of the map and the possible number of enemies duelling onscreen at one time that's a huge achievement. From everything to cacti in the desert to the muscles of the horses you ride, everything looks exactly as you'd imagine it to. This is life in the old west brought to life. Besides camera angles, the cut-scenes and gameplay are almost indistinguishable, and the characters look pretty damn realistic (like a great film, you can tell what the characters are thinking just by looking at their facial expressions and body language). In short, this a beautiful, beautiful game.

Sound - Perfect. Graphics may improve, gameplay may improve, but I honestly couldn't see how the soundtrack to this game could be any better. You really become immersed in the game when you have the traditional Spaghetti Western style music playing as you ride after outlaws in the desert. I was worried that having that kind of music in the game would make it seem cheesy or fake, but it really does add a sense of atmosphere. The voice-acting is also superb, as is now standard for Rockstar games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing short of spectacular 18 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As far as games go, I've had good experiences, and bad experiences. I won't mention the bad experiences, but as for the good ones, Red Dead Redemption tops the list. The deep, moving and exciting story, the perfectly designed gameplay mechanics, and a fun, original multiplayer element makes this not only the best sandbox game of all time, but the best game I have ever encountered.

You play as John Marston, a former outlaw, trying to hunt down his former brother in arms. Things go south quickly when the U.S Marshals, The Mexican Government, and John's wife and son all become embroiled in the plot. Within the first hour, the story, and many of the main characters are introduced. The first mission drops you straight into the struggle, and you will soon realise that this hunt goes much deeper that it first seems. The characters are all typically Western, but without being characatures. Both the voice acting, and the personalities of these characters are top notch.

Being made by Rockstar Games, the gameplay will be familiar anyone who has played a Grand Theft Auto game. This means that the gunplay, fisticuffs and just general motion, will feel a lot like GTA IV. But this game is so much more that GTA in the wild west. You have period-authentic weapons at your disposal, and rather than fast cars, you will have horses, stagecoaches, and even a train, which you can use to travel across the gorgeous western landscape. Or, if you want to take things more slowly, you can simply wander. Travelling to forts, you will also have the opportunity to use terrifying gattling guns and cannons.

The environment this game provides you with is truly something to behold. You start the game in the sandy, rocky landscapes that all feel familiar to those who have ever seen a western film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sets some great standards 2 Jun 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hello people,

Its hard to know where to start when reviewing a game such as Red Dead Redemption, so i will break this down into different points.

Storyline: Firstly this is a sandbox game, much in the same style as GTA 4. I personally find it hard to really connect with story and characters when it comes to sandbox games. This is due to the fact that there is just so much to do that i find myself getting side-tracked with exploring, side missions and generally just seeing what the game has to offer. The problem is you can spend an hour or two progressing the story, then just feel like messing around in the open-world. This doesn't create a very linear storyline like Bioshock or Alan Wake. I understand that both games used as examples of a linear storyline are both totally different to RDR.
I wont say to much about the storyline other than you play as John Marston, a man who travels to America during the industrial revolution on some sort of a revenge mission. John Marston is your typical bad guy turned good. The best thing about the storyline is the very unexpected twist at the end. **NO SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO ARE YET TO FINISH THE GAME PLEASE (IF YOU DO COMMENT)**

Graphics: The graphics are of a very high standard, which many gamers of today will expect. Personally i look past not so good graphics, if the gameplay is fun and makes me want to continue playing i'm fine with that. Anyway, using the same or a very similar game engine to that of GTA4, you can get an idea of what to expect, however the game is much sharper. I haven't experienced any bad frame rates or the ground beneath you disappearing briefly, both problems that occur in GTA4.
The detail in RDR is spot on from the weapons, the horse movement, the way animals in the wild move, weather effects.
