The gameplay is spot-on, probably because Rockstar has mastered these types of 3rd person games. The controls work almost flawlessly, and the horse-riding is one of the most intuitive experiences I've had in a video game. Most games that introduce horses don't focus that much on the mechanics involved to have a character ride a horse, but since this is a western game this is a very detailed aspect.
There are many adult themes, so it's probably not one for the kiddies, but for any even semi-mature gamers, this one is definitely one you shouldn't miss.
Really, I can't say enough good things about this game.
The graphics were good for their time, and still hold up. The music is perfectly matched to the setting, and will send chills up the spine of any player with a soul. The Red Dead Redemption Original Soundtrack is the only OST that I have ever purchased. The voice acting is generally good, although the accents occasionally seemed forced (at least to my ear). Certain parts of the game can be repetitive. Red Dead Redemption is serviceable as a third-person shooter, but is hardly the best in that genre from a game-mechanics perspective. Consistent with other titles from Rockstar, the polish of the game is undercut by controls that seem slow and inexact.
I played the multiplayer and downloadable content only briefly. This is likely a matter of taste, as I have heard many rave reviews on these features, but I found them uninteresting. This is mostly because they do not take place within the game's central narrative.
In my opinion, this is a game worth playing, even if only for the story. On that topic, I cannot praise it enough.
The game requires a reasonable time investment (about 30 hours for a reasonably complete playthrough; perhaps only 20 for less obsessive players), but is well worth it.
