OXM UK: Red Dead Redemption Preview

If Rockstar's GTAIV is the dark lampooning of new world opportunities and the American Dream, then Red Dead Redemption is the company's stark appraisal of the crushing transitions that occurred to make both a reality - of Old West brutality swept aside by the rapid expansion of civilisation and technology.

It may lack the ribald humour of the latest in the GTA series, but it's very clearly Rockstar's product - but one that draws inspiration from the open country vistas of Westerns rather than the urban gangster vibe of the crime genre. Calling it GTA: Tales of a Cowboy wouldn't be too far off the mark.

The story is too old to be commented.
