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)

If you love western movies, are entranced by western books or love the idea of the romanticized history of the good ol' U.S.of A. then check out Red Dead Redemption. The story is amazing, the graphics are beautiful, and the gameplay...there's just so much to do. I haven't begun to scratch the surface and I've been playing for 5 or 6 hours. An absolute must buy.

Presentation - 10
A powerful story with very unique characters. Incredible but not perfect.
Graphics - 9.5
This is an incredible looking game with even more fantastic art direction. A couple of visual glitches but not enough to affect the game.
Sound - 10
Great voice acting and a near perfect musical score.
Gameplay - 10
Singleplayer will last you about 20-30 hours. I found myself just riding around and admiring the landscape. Nothing feels more like the Wild West than catching an outlaw then dragging him with your horse. Multi-player feels like a totally new game which adds to the experience.
Lasting Appeal - 10
