OXCGN’s Red Dead Redemption Review: GTA Gone Wild West?

Red Dead Redemption is the most complete realization of the Wild West ever expressed in a video game.

The easiest way to describe Red Dead Redemption is “Grand Theft Auto” on horseback. With Rockstar behind both games, it is no surprise that the mechanics and structure of both games is similar.

The story is too old to be commented.

Finally Rockstar get away from GTA and apply the formula to something new and interesting.

A western is a masterstroke!

I love it when some gamers say they have finished this game in less than 8 hours or so. Total you-know-what.

A dedicated gamer spent the last 7 days playing this every day and night, and he still has 14.5% of the game to finish.

Now that is epic in the true sense of the word.

If you simply took your time and did all the various side missions and found all the items, helped every towns-person out and managed to help every stranger out, you'd be there for weeks.

While some will complain it's nothing more that GTA in western clothing, I'd have to disagree. While it bears resemblance, there is a definite difference to the overall gameplay.

One game that will have me going back to it time and time again.

I'll definitely be picking this up on my holiday from University, although im worried it might suffer from many things that let GTA4 down? - Ie the lame phone calls (obviously not in this one) and the awful check point system it had.
