Rockstar Games is a company that is no stranger to producing blockbuster games that are loads of fun and extremely immersive. If you want an example of what they can achieve, just take a look at the uber-popular Grand Theft Auto series. With their recent release of Red Dead Redemption for the PS3 and other gaming consoles, they have scored another hit. Complete with great gameplay, tons of side missions, excellent characters, and realistic graphics and sound, this is one action game that is a must-have for your gaming collection.
If Red Dead Redemption had to be described in one sentence, think of it as Grand Theft Auto with a western flare. With so many games seemingly focused on the modern times and the future, it is nice to have a title that focuses on a different period of history.
When you think about old Westerns, it's hard to imagine why more games of this type have not come out in the past. Think about it. You have it all: action, bad guys, good guys, and the Wild West. What could be better than that combination?
You play Red Dead Redemption filling the role of the protagonist known as John Marston. He is basically your prototypical Western badass, complete with a scruffy face, scars, and just an overall intimidating demeanor. Oh, he's pretty good with a weapon in his hands too.
Marston is an outlaw with a checkered past who has decided to hit the road to put his past behind him and start over. He arrives in the southwestern town of Armadillo, where he is a nobody. Armadillo is a small town that looks similar to what you would see in Hollywood's adaptations of the old days, complete with both good and bad characters.
As with Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption is ripe with so many different characters and personalities that they alone make the game entertaining. The dialog is quite engaging, and you will many times find yourself laughing at some of the things that are said.
