Everything about this game is top notch. Amazing graphics. Awsome gameplay. Absolutely great story. This game had some minor issues with glitches but I rarely ever had a glitch. This game had one of the best endings ever in a game. And you could play this game for months and not get tired of it. Theres so much to do in this game. And after you finally beat the single player it dosen't end there. The multiplayer could be a game in it's self. I had so much fun playing this game. I look forward to the next one.

~ NO SPOILERS ~

Red Dead Redemption is perhaps one of the best games of all time, ans is, thus far, the best game of 2010. I have a strong feeling, young Padawans, that this game is going to sell millions and millions.

The protagonist, John, has, like all NPCs, a character that is displayed beautifully through the game's wonderful story. The story isn't cheesy, cheap, or stupid. Of course, there's maybe one moment (in the beginning) that's a little dumb. But, other than that, the game is magnificent. It balances action, drama, and an unexpected chunk of comedy perfectly through it's cut-scenes and NPCs conversations with one another. To get a good laugh, stand outside a saloon to hear the drunken patrons' conversations. It's a hoot.

There is a TON of extra activities in the game. It's loaded with mini-games and side missions that will provide endless hours of entertainment. There are also "random" events that occur in some towns and on the roads. These include hangings, pleads for help, shootouts, gang encounters, highwayman checkpoints, and getting bamboozled by a seemingly harmless woman who is actually working with gang members to draw you in so they can attack you. You really never know what to expect, and it's that feeling that is oh so wonderful.

In conclusion, Red Dead Redemption has everything a good game should have. Only cons are that the player character (PC) runs a bit odd, and selecting weapons via the weapon-wheel can be agrivating sometimes. Still, I'd say this is a revolutionary game that has raised the bar sky-high. It is now probably one of my favorite games of all time. Rockstar did a fantastic job, and I wish every game developer worked as hard as they did on this game.

Combat score: 9.5
Traveling score: 10
Interaction score: 10
Variety score: 10
Weapon selection: 8.5
Side-missions: 10
Main missions: 10
Other: 10

OVERALL SCORE: 10 out of a possible 1

TAKE NOTES GAME DESIGNERS

Simply AMAZING this game is by far one of the best i have ever played.
For the simple reason i love wester games and movies this game gives you control over anything you wanna do be a bandit or be an honorable person and uphold the law.
You can run off and and not do any missions and just enjoy youself killing all kinda animals ranging from wild boars to bucks and doves to coyotes wolfs and cougars and birds like owls and hawks and crows there are tons of different animals. The controls are hella easy to learn and use if there is any downside to the game is sometimes your horse will dissapear when you get off to skin some animals.
But other than that its such a fun game to play you will not get bored anytime soon with this tittle. I wanna give my thanks to ROCKSTAR games personally because to all other game designers this is how you make a game not rushed lots of tought into it and great substance.
Two thumbs up i would do more but i only have 2 hands :)

Thank you guys i LOVE THIS TITTLE.
