To be honest, for 3 months I mocked my friend for buying this. It really seems like a version of GTA but with cowboys, which sounded to me like it'd take the fun out of it, I was wrong. Every free-roam game I own gets repetitive, not this one. I'd replay it again and again, because rather than most games repeating the same small boring missions, thinking they are more fun the 21st time, this game adds new gameplay so quickly that you hardly repeat anything unless you choose to. Fame is a huge part of the fun in the game, it makes you so unimportant at 1st, and I didn't notice this until the end, fame actually makes people react differently, aswell as the honor system, which is a bit flawed, such as losing honor for killing robbers, but it's still a great way to tell how many innocents you've murdered. The game is so unrepetative though that even after I've beaten it, I'm still going to buy it. The campain is just short enough to end right before your rushing to the end, but long enough to let hardcore or even casual gamers feel...connected. Also, so many parts of the game can be replayed and challenges don't stop thanks to a modest but not exesive amount of achievements obtained in the main storyline. And I'll be honest, I'm a cutscene skiper, and I've laughed at some of CoD's deaths in campain, but this game made me even cry, and I made my friends shut up every time a cutscene came on. Why? Your an awesome character in the game and the cutscenes graphics and occasional lines (aswell as the lack of sane people) make them unforgetable. Honestly, it seems to good to just rent. So many weapons and fun, unrepetitive missions make the game so far away from GTA but yet close enough that GTA fans will love it too. Best of all, the storyline sets you up as a hero (you can play differently) rather than a terrorist, so the worries of parents have been well satisfied. A game worth buying, getting all the DLC and something that is easy to badmouth only before you play.

red dead redemption caught my attention a few months and I waited endlessly for. Now, that I have it I'm blown away. for the first part the world is massive and alive! But with such alarge area you need to be very patiant in getting everywhere. Next, biggest rockstar weopen collection yet, dozen of guns from revolvers to shotguns even a gatling-gun. the characters that you meet along the way are mostly weird, evil, creepy, or, rarely, good. If you like hunting you'll love this game animals are everywhere. There are tons of smaller things as well like bounty hunting, gambling, random missions and people, and now returning to roickstar, free-roaming games, buyable homes!
Now on to multiplayer, you first start out in a free roam with many other online players, in it you can level-up, get new weopens, and select game matches with your freinds, not to mention all the games you can play online as well.
So take it from me buy this game! There are very few faults, great graphics, steller multiplayer, and an unlimited amount of stuff to do.

Im very strict when it comes to reviewing games. An this game by far is maybe the best game ive ever played. It has the GTA feel,but the graphics are smoother and the game will take you a minimum of 25hrs to beat. I keep finding myself getting side tracked with all the side missions. The main character will make you laugh out loud and there are so many mini games inside this game.(horse shoes,poker,dice,black jack,many more) You can skin and kill any animal you see. Its a must play game and I believe after you get the game you will pay to keep it instead of return it. You wont be disappointed,trust me. Theres a max payne\fallout type slow motion button when in combat that is awsome. You can choose to be bad or good like in fable. The multiplayer has lots of cool options to.(download the multiplayer video off xbox live and you will see what im talking about)
