I feel compelled to say, Wow!!! I'm a huge western fan and what I didn't like about GTA I love here. This is a vivid world were you can be the Lone Ranger or Dirty Harry. This is every great western rolled into one. a must play! It is a true masterpiece. Well done Rockstar, well done!

Best? or Second to GTA?

Well what can i say? Red Dead Redemption. Finally i waited for 2 years for this to release, And let me tell you it was worth the wait. At first i was thinking that the hype of how great it was gonna be was gonna be a lie like most games but oh how i was wrong. i was hoping it was gonna be better then GUN. And my hopes came true BIGTIME!! First of all the story was spectacular, And the graphics was amazing in the first cut scene were it shows the fairy and the water it blew me away. And it only gets better with the missions and the mini games. When i found out i could play horse shoes i was thinking "People outside the country know what horse shoes is?" (Im from the country i now live in the city). And being able to cheat at poker just added the extra umph. There's more mini games too much to count. The cast of characters is as good as GTA titles. Hunting never gets boring. The music was a good aspect too. A part in the game where your riding your horse and the music WITH lyrics plays as you ride it will make your heart melt. The voice acting is top quality. Not famous actors but they still deliver. the horse movements is realistic it shows their muscles moving with their motions. when you shoot animals they will never fall the same way same with humans. its a high replay value every time you play through things happen different.My advise is rent then pay to keep trust me when you play it you will not want to send it back. 10 out of 10 hands down

Pros & Cons of Red Dead Redemption

Pros:
1. Great story.
2. Great action and fun game mechanics.
3. Ambient challenges are original, well done, and consume your time.
4. Dead Eye (lvl 3) is very useful.
5. Open world is massive and extremely detailed.
6. Has the humor of GTA and the good mission designs (thanks to the Rage Engine).
7. Online is original too. It could use some better controls, but overall is fun.

Cons:
1. Becoming wanted and fighting the law is a bit lackluster and repetitive. It could have used more GTA styled anarchy such as multiple levels of heat and increasingly difficult enemies.

How to WIN:
Bolt Action Rifle and a fast horse.
