Summary

Simply, a fun game

The Good

The game is set in the wild west, as the sequel of Red Dead Revolver. Like in GTA, it is possible to steal vehicles like horses and many more. When looking at the gameplay, you can say it's fairly easy. Anyone who has played GTA wont have a problem playing this game. A lot of missions, which consist of races are easy to complete. However, there are some missions which require a second try. But after all, this wont be a problem for the average game. Moving on to the graphics and sound, I think they are wonderful. Everything looks and sounds like in the really wild west, and there was never anything wrong at any time. On the other hand, the multiplayer option gives you the ability to free roam or to play death match or capture the flag style games. This was very much fun and very addicting.

The Bad

The only thing that bothered me, are the repetitive story missions that you get in the first half of the game. After that, I think everything in the game gets better.

The Bottom Line

This is a fun and action packed western game, better than its competitors and one of the best free roam and western games ever made.
