Red Dead Redemption is now one of my favourite games of all time.

I can't stop playing it.
Some days I'll come home from work and play a little poker, go out hunting, maybe help a guy get his stolen horse back.... whatever pops up. The story and voice acting are great, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

And I haven't even tried the multiplayer yet.

Best game ever.. what else can I say. It is endless fun. I've been playing for 50+ hours with no end in sight. I hope more games like this are created. There is no forced story line so you can take whatever route you choose to play. I love this game!

If I would have to sum up this game in just one sentence I would say it's GTA with horses instead of cars, but that wouldn't do the game justice. If you've ever played any of the recent GTA games, the gameplay will seem familiar to you. The thing that really makes this game stand out is the atmosphere; you really feel like you went back in time. The towns are rich and detailed and the landscape vast and beautiful, if not a little empty at times. Missions are interesting and varied, but if you get sick of doing missions the excellent little mini-games, like poker, are fun as well, not to mention the various side-missions and the multiplayer mode.

The graphics are great and the characters are detailed. The voice acting is very well done and fits the setting perfectly. If you like sandbox style games, definitely pick this up. Even if sandbox style games don't strike your fancy, consider giving it a shot, as the unique setting definitely makes it stand out from games in this category.

This is one of the best 3rd person games I have ever played. Just riding around hunting some of the many typs of wildlife could be a game in it's self. It is long but not too long with a great story. The little side missions are well done too. There isn't much to say is wrong with this game, I say 5 out of 5 stars or just a plain 10 out of 10.

All i can say is the reviews with 5 stars all are spot on. I got nothing to add but what i can tell you is that I never liked the game GTA 4 in fact never liked the gta series (except gta2) and was not sure about getting this game. Yet, i got it and it took me two weeks to finish the game 100%. It has been the best game I ever played. Even though i got uncharted 2 at the same time i got this game, I till play this game and only played UC2 a few hours. You just can do so much in this game that you almost can imagine.

Thanks R*

Well, I was never a huge fan of Westerns...but this game has reeled me in 100%!

To start off, this really feels like it's 2 games in one; the Single Player Campaign, and the Online experience. Both have their exclusive elements which really sets Read Dead Redemption (RDR) apart from most games that have a campaign while simultaneously offering online gameplay.

Campaign mode in RDR is a story-driven experience that offers a massive open world to begin with, and eventually unlocks 2 other sections on the map that only make it larger. Rockstar was never a graphics powerhouse like say, Square-Enix, but this game fares well and is a step up from any of their previous efforts. The side challenges are fun as well, and only add to the experience of the game. Shooting, collecting, hunting, treasure-seeking - all part of the extras PLUS there are stangers to help along the way! Not only that, mini games such as Black Jack, Poker, and 5-Finger Filet (my personal fav) are also offered. With about 20 hours put into the game, I had only achieved about 30% game completion. All in all, a great campaign mode. Fans of action adventure games will not be disappointed.

Online gameplay is different from the campaign mode in that, despite using the same map from the single player mode, actually feels like a different game. This is achieved through new (different) challenges as well as the ability to play alongside (up to) 8 other players in a "posse" (gang) as a means of storming gang hideouts and accomplishing other challenges in "capture the flag" style matches that involve bags of gold, or standoffs/duels, and even deathmatches in a squared-off town. As I mentioned earlier, it really does feel like a different game, while still having that uncanny familiar feel.

When the game arrived in the mail box around 10:30am I put it in the PS3 and fired it up. Well the next thing I knew it was 3am and I had to force myself to bed. I had to give the game to my beloved to take to work so I actually got something done for the rest of my week off.

If haven't all ready heard by now this game's virtual world is massive and beautiful to ride through on the horse. I am enjoying the single player story mode right now and I like it a lot. Even though there is a sequence of events there are plenty of other challenges and tasks outside of the main story to not make it feel like a guided story (like Uncharted). I am normally a PC gamer and not much for the story type games but this one I enjoy because of the open world concept that still has a story line you can return to when you're ready. I've had a horrible time adjusting to the controller instead of the mouse in PS3 online shooting games. There are enough lessons in the story line to show you how to use the guns, lasso, and horse riding to help a beginner out though.

The online experience has been less fun and detailed but still interesting none the less. It seems you can only get experience points by shooting stuff. As with any online play you run into a lot of jerks, grievers, and gangs who want to show their dominance over any one else. This is less a fault of the game and more the online console environment. It was fun to storm gang hideouts with friends, but can become tedious. It's mostly running around shooting at characters. But fun none the less.
