When I first heard of Red Dead Redemption, I wanted nothing to do with it. Then I noticed all of the hype, including game-of-the-year from multiple sources. So I figured, what the heck? Here's what I found out:
Story:10 A promise of redemption drives the main character to the end of the game.
Graphics:10 Beautiful scenery that I just had to stop and atare at for a while.
Sound:10 Great voice work, and an awesome soundtrack.
Gameplay:10 A bit like PS2's GUN, only for this generation.
Multiplayer:10 Crazy, unbalanced, but fun as anything!

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
