About

Red Dead Redemption is a third-person open-world adventure game which implements the Wild West at its best: it is very much GTA-clone but in bizarre stylistics and the very beginning of the twentieth century. This is the second title of a franchise, being preceded by Red Dead Revolver and followed by Red Dead Redemption 2 coming out in late 2018.
We play as John Marston who gradually takes down and take out criminals and those, who crosses his path. Among the combat mechanics, the most interesting one is "Dead Eye" — it allows one to point multiple targets out in slow motion and then shoot them simultaneously.
The game features 16-players multiplayer and cooperative and also has zombie DLC — Undead Nightmare. Additional content adds two modes to the original game: undead overrun in which you have to survive an infinite amount of zombie waves, and Land Grab in which player has to defend the particular piece of land to gain control of it.

Red Dead Redemption reviews and comments

Red Dead Redemption is a fantastic game that still stands the test of time 8 years later. Seen as more of a spiritual successor to Red Dead Revolver, Red Dead Redemption abandons the theatrics and fantasy elements of Revolver and instead presents a more gritty appraisal of the American West more akin to Grand Theft Auto than to Red Dead Revolver. The story centers on John Marston, a former outlaw who is forced, by the federal government, to hunt down the last members of his gang. Marston just wants another chance at a new life outside of crime, and due to the government holding his family hostage, he is forced back into a world that he seeks to abandon to do one final murderous act and to start a new life. The story chronicles the last days of the “savage” untamed West. It is the end of the cowboy and outlaw and the dawn of modernization. The story touches on that and there are so many references in the game to this changing time, in fact the main antagonist of the game seems to represent that to an extent. The voice acting is fantastic with a few relatively known actors in the cast, but overall, Rockstar continues to cast talented voice actors who no one has ever heard of, or at least I haven’t. The characters themselves are all fascinating from revolutionaries in Mexico to scumbags and lawmen in Texas, there are so many interesting characters and moments in this game. The graphics are still a little dated, but to me, they are preferable when compared to GTA IV. The gunplay is a little stiff, but that and a plethora of other improvements are made in Red Dead Redemption II. The game has a very manageable amount of side quests that are fun and enjoyable. The game also gives the player a general idea of how rough life in the American West actually was. There is a vibrant wildlife that can be both used for gain (hunting) or could be used against you as you travel through New Austin, Texas, Nuevo Paraiso, Mexico and West Elizabeth. You could spend a very long time with this game, but there is still a moment where the game, for all intents and purposes is considered to be over (much like most of the other Rockstar games). Red Dead Redemption brings the experience of the gunslinging, Western outlaw to the video game medium in a way that cannot be replicated. This game is what defines the cowboy or Western themed video game forever. Fun, riveting, and immersive, Red Dead Redemption is one of the best games to emerge in the 2000s.

Rating: 5/5
