To date, no other title in 2010 has offered the same level of scope for freedom and adventure, nor a story so deftly told. What’s more, you don’t even have to be a GTA fan to enjoy it. If you’ve ever wanted to be a cowboy (and what red-blooded male hasn’t?), Red Dead Redemption is fantasy wish-fulfilment on an extravagant scale."
