GameFocus writes: "Every time Rockstar Games releases a new title, controversy is never too far away. It’s common knowledge that the majority of their products are geared towards mature audiences, often because of the gratuitous and sometimes extreme violent undertones (hence the ’M’ rating). Red Dead Redemption is yet another M-rated game, but unlike the Manhunts and Grand Theft Autos before it, this open-world western adventure goes beyond the “Mature” experience Rockstar Games has made us accustomed to over the years. The kind of game that bonehead politicians should look at and say: “These guys really did something great here. We should give them credit for once.” The kind of experience that every gamer should enjoy with no hesitation, despite your love or hate for Rockstar."
