On the face of it the game “Red Dead Redemption” looks almost perfect. It has all the makings of a true blockbuster: guns, cowboys, explosions and realistic open world game play. I know many of you are now frothing at the mouth at the thought of this but there’s more!
The game is set at the beginning of the industrial age, as the lawless open west cleared out as the industrial train rolled in. You play as an ex-outlaw called ‘John Marston’ as you battle your way through the absolutely HUGE and diverse world of Read Dead Redemption. In this world you will experience the scorching heat of the desert, the treacherous mountains passes and the intense towns.
In this world you are far from alone, the entire game is bursting with life such as bears, deer, buffalo and humans. In most games the A.I. (that’s "Artificial Intelligence") is slow, thoughtless and just seems to be half hearted. But thanks to the "euphoria physics" each character is both quick and responsive. Each character is individually designed with their own habits and traits and their own complete personality! The game is indeed a sequel to the 2004 blockbuster "Red Dead Revolver". So what makes Red Dead Redemption so special I hear you ask? Well there's many, many reasons but the main one must be its unique Dead Eye targeting system. This allows the player to slow down time and place shots on certain points of the body for maximum carnage. This Epic game will be out on May 21st 2010, it will be available on the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. This game will keep you entertained for hours, so I’m going to give it a smashing 8/10!
