GameSpot writes - "Red Dead Redemption may be set in the wilderness of the Old West, but among the tumbleweeds, cacti, and ghost towns, there's a surprising amount of life. Wild horses roam, prostitutes vie for customers in the saloons of New Austin, and gangs of outlaws battle for control. The farms, towns, and hamlets all have their own character, and as you travel through the countryside, the flora, fauna, and people change with you as you make your way from the Mexican mesas to the bear-hunting grounds of the north.
Poker games can often be found in the rear of establishments that serve liquor in the front.
If you stay in one place and wait for night to fall, the whole picture changes too. Small campfires spring up around the wilderness, providing refuge for all manner of ne'er-do-wells and simple travellers, and the wildlife changes, with nocturnal creatures coming out to play. The same thing is true of the weather: violent thunderstorms can break out, changing the complexion of the land and the behaviour of pretty much everything living off it."
