Red Dead Redemption, The tale of John Marston through Americas Final Frontier.
The unproven western genre has now been proven. Red Dead Redemption offers countless hours of entertainment. Be it through the amazing Single player story. The fun and well balanced Mini games and side missions, or even better, The Multiplayer.
For people who may remember Grand Theft auto 4's Free Roam. Red Dead adds in countless things to do in free roam. Be it shooting up a gang hideout, evading us marshalls via horseback, or simply hunting some bears with your buds.
But the single player story is by far the height of the experience. The story is beautifully woven together. A very rare commodity in most todays games. After awhile you just kinda fall into the role of John marston as if you were in the game itself.
I have been unable to find anything wrong with the game, infact I think it's perfect in every way. I have come across very very few bugs, but most of them made me laugh hysterically.
So to sum up my review, I give this game a Ten for Perfection. All other western games here on out will without a doubt, be compared to Red Dead Redemption.

Red Dead Redemption is a continued game from a Playstation2 classic Red Dead Revolver... However, the new title Redemption is nothing like the first Red Dead title. The game play is a lot like Grand Theft Auto IV, a lot of realistic motion, but with a greater area to Roam in and a lot more fun. The Multiplayer is very unique with a role playing `sense(XP points and Character exceeding abilities) with a variety of things you can do..
You play as John Marston. John Marston has a bad history and trys to leave the history to rest. Instead of finding that peace in mind, John Marston is forced by Federals to help hinder his old accomplice. He travels far to figure how to bring his past to an end -- How ever he can bring his past to an end.
A well written Western, placing you in the rural Wild West. Now, unlike games like Saboteur by Panademic. RockStar Games knows there isn't 100s of people constantly walking around the country side at night. The Wild West Rockstar conducted really brings to mind the obstacles people back then faced, beautifully. Rich, vast landscapes, inhospitable strangers... The motion detail in animation is superb in every thing too the tumble weeds. Side missions include: bounty hunting, breaking(taming) horses, playing poker, herding cattle, hunting, holding up trains or strangers, and to even playing a game of horse shoes[tossing].
Multiplayer.... is hilarious, you select your character and that character can upgrade after ranking up. You start with a donkey el' Senor. You can get a horse later on if you like. As soon as you start multiplayer: They throw you into free Roam with other online players. In free roam you can either run around the World of Red Dead Redemption, shooting anyone `thing that moves. Or you can play strategic game modes that are Posse(team) orientated.
The game is really great, and I haven't mention all the co-op modes or other side missions.
Rockstar has produced a marvel, that is worth every penny of it. Try it..
