Red Dead Redemption is more than a great western, it's the first time this type of game has been successfully recreated for a home game console. Others have tried, but nobody has been able to offer a world as compelling as Rockstar Games. With its lengthy story, exciting characters and fantastic online implementation, Red Dead Redemption is a must-buy for anybody who has always wanted to be a cowboy!

The fact of the matter is, this is a game that you really need to play (hell, just watching someone play might be enough) to appreciate. With Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar succeeds in creating one of the most impressive open worlds I've ever seen in a game, and it's telling that -- even after playing for over 30 hours -- all I want to do is get back on my horse and gallop back into the wilderness. Hey, those endangered species aren't just going to kill themselves, right?

Red Dead Redemption s’annonçait comme une tuerie, et propose finalement du rêve avec un grand R, ainsi qu’une aventure avec un grand A. Le jeu, même s’il souffre de bugs, propose une immersion totale et une expérience de jeu encore plus approfondie que ce qu’on a pu avoir auparavant sur ce type de jeu, faisant oublier ces petits tracas. Si vous avez adoré la série GTA, vous serez envoûté par Red Dead Redemption. Si vous n’appréciez pas les GTA, tentez donc quand même votre chance avec cette version cowboy qui écrase simplement son modèle tout en apportant plus de souplesse dans le gameplay. Un très bon prétendant au titre de jeu de l’année qui place la barre très haute.

Red Dead Redemption is a game that leaves you satisfied with your experience with a great ending that will hopefully lead right into the sequel (or at least some DLC) and at the same time makes you want more. Seriously, this is the best GTA since Vice City, and it's not even technically GTA. With more co-op missions on the way and an already enticing multiplayer beyond the single-player game, it's going to be a long time before this one rides off into the sunset for good.

It’s great to play a game-changing open world release that’s not based in a city or desolate wasteland, but instead takes place in the varied stretches of Westward land ready to be taken under government control. It fulfills the common elements of many regularly referenced pieces of western film and literature without becoming over-reliant on any one source of inspiration. Much like Batman Arkham Asylum did for superhero games last year, Red Dead Redemption never sacrifices gameplay to achieve authenticity, and makes the appropriate concessions in the story to keep the game heading in the right direction. Every time a Grand Theft Auto or Table Tennis game is released, we ask ‘how can Rockstar possibly surpass this in quality?’ Rockstar have redeemed themselves and there’s no need to return to the city after providing this compelling argument against automotive transportation.

Red Dead Redemption har ett par små skavanker, som trilskande kontroll på hästryggen och lite småbuggar här och där, men när helheten är så fantastiskt bra som den är kan jag inte annat än dela ut full pott. Mängder med intressanta och roliga uppdrag, en vacker och detaljerad spelvärld, bra dialog och intressanta personligheter; listan kan göras lång. Red Dead Redemption är det bästa öppna sandlådespel jag spelat och överträffar till och med Grand Theft Auto-serien vad det gäller innehåll och kvalitet. En upplevelse i världsklass helt enkelt.

Rockstar San Diego’s latest title is an unmissable game for any fan of the genre or great action adventures in general. We don’t often get masterpieces around here, but this is certainly one of those moments in time when gamers will look back more fondly on a dusty old six shooter than anything that involves jacking cars. The Wild West, then, is the new New York, and Rockstar have got their work cut out for them if they want Grand Theft Auto V to come anywhere near close to the majesty of Red Dead Redemption. A job we don’t envy.

I've enjoyed playing RDR on Xbox 360 so much I'm about to start my second run through the game. I'll take my time and explore even more, earning my stripes as a hunter, survivalist and treasure seeker ahead of launching into the multiplayer madness when the game is released tomorrow. I'll add some multiplayer impressions in the coming days once I've had a chance to play Red Dead Redemption under real-world conditions. For now rest assured that Red Dead Redemption is a single player game that keeps on giving, is as good as if not better than Grand Theft Auto IV and is as beautiful as a Hollywood epic.

Bien, llegamos al final de este análisis y como podéis comprobar he cumplido mi promesa de no decir absolutamente nada sobre la historia del juego. Cuando tuve la oportunidad de jugarlo por primera vez hace unos días yo tampoco sabía nada sobre el argumento y la verdad es que ir descubriéndolo poco a poco ha sido un auténtico placer. Creo que el secreto de Red Dead Redemption está en la inmersión que comentaba al inicio del artículo, es un juego que pone delante de tus narices un mundo que te está pidiendo que lo explores y que te pierdas por él. Si a esto le sumamos un guión excelente, personajes memorables, mucha acción y un acabado técnico de quitarse el sombrero tenemos ante nosotros uno de los mejores títulos de esta generación. A primera vista no es un juego revolucionario pero si os dejáis llevar por sus historias del Oeste, descubriréis que esconde muchos más secretos de los que podríais imaginar. La fórmula del sandbox no se ha estancado, ha dado un paso adelante.

Red Dead Redemption är feelgood-western när den är som allra bäst och när eftertexterna rullar efter runt 30 spelade timmar (där jag absolut inte gjort ens i närheten av allt) är jag bara en hårsmån från att ansöka om ett amerikanskt green card för att skaffa en ranch ute i Arkansas, komplett med dussinet Black Angus-boskap, en stetson-hatt och bli en riktig cowboy. Rockstar har inte bara gjort det bästa western-spelet någonsin, utan en vuxen välskriven historia som på allvar engagerar, berör och är helt genreöverskridande. Red Dead Redemption är kort sagt ett mästerverk ingen får missa.

Red Dead Redemption has, to this point, been a near perfect experience in videogaming. It's a game of wide open spaces, gravelly voiced cowboys, crooked politicians, and intimidating facial hair. Now's the time for me to go an obsess about whether I have accurately conveyed not only my intense pleasure in having finally been able to play it end to end, but whether I have quite rightly said: YOU won't be disappointed. The world is populated by rustlers, cutthroats, thieves, whores and power-drunk commanders. But at the same time, you'll find sweethearts, poets, hardworking ranchers and those that are willing to die alongside you for a good cause. You can choose which side of the line you want to walk, and I am quite sure you'll be walking it for a long, long time. On a personal note, this reviewer has a new favourite of all time: see ya later, Ocarina... we had some good times.

Red Dead Redemption more than lives up to the billing; if this game's concepts seem even remotely interesting to you, head out immediately to your nearest game store and slap your cash down. The single-player story alone is more than worth the price of admission, and the multiplayer is truly unique and will likely evolve into something very special as the community continues to grow. Bravo Rockstar! You've created yet another juggernaut. I can't wait to see where the series goes from here.

Red Dead Redemption sets the bar for all future genre efforts and it gives players the chance to participate in their very own Spaghetti Western that includes a wild cast of characters, epic wild west showdowns, a score that would make Ennio Morricone proud, an absurdly expansive frontier to explore, and a wonderfully enjoyable multiplayer experience that will have players forming posses and battling bandits for some time. It’s going to take a lot to top this one. Even if you’re not a fan of Westerns, there’s still plenty here to enjoy. Red Dead Redemption is one of 2010’s best games.

Anyway, Red Dead is a great game to climb into and just live for a while, and that's everything I wanted. In fact, I'm actually feeling pretty annoyed that I'm not wandering around in there right now. Stupid videogame reviews. There are herds to save, outlaws to kneecap, frontier ladies to rescue, random strangers to tie up and drop off a cliff for no reason, and sunsets that need riding off into.

Het is daarom moeilijk om nog te vallen over de paar kleine onvolkomenheden in het spel. Want een spel met de omvang van Red Dead Redemption kan nu eenmaal niet bugvrij zijn. Het wil nog wel eens voorkomen dat John half vast komt te zitten in de omgeving, dat je paard zichzelf de afgrond inloopt wanneer je hem roept of dat personages ergens boven de grond zweven. Maar als zulke foutjes al niet worden opgelost met een patch, dan kunnen we ze vergeven. Want Red Dead Redemption is verder in alles van een uitzonderlijke klasse. Tot het einde aan toe. En dan hebben we nog niet eens gehad over de multiplayermodus, die we op het moment van schrijven niet hebben kunnen uitproberen. Dus het kan altijd nog een 11 worden.

Only time will tell, of course. Perhaps I’m wrong, and the gaming masses don’t want to rush out and embrace Red Dead Redemption in the way they did with GTA IV. If they don’t, it’ll be a crying shame and perhaps the final proof that cowboy games just don’t work. But I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think this game is going to do the business, big time. I certainly hope it does, because to be frank, it’s a magnificent piece of work that everybody should play. John Marston may not quite be the next Jack Sparrow, but in the realm of cowboy games, Red Dead Redemption is clearly the genuine article.

I could go on and on about how great Red Dead Redemption is and what it does for Westerns on a console, but to truly understand you need to get on your finest horse, go pick up a copy and play it until your eyes bleed. Even if Red Dead Redemption doesn’t make your top ten favorites it will at the very least be a tale of outlaws, dead men and deceit that will remain with you for years. Here at PlanetXbox360.com only one other game besides Red Dead Redemption has received a perfect score of 10/10, without question this will be a contender for Game of the Year and is worth every cent of the price tag; go pick up a copy of the best Western available on the Xbox 360 now.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that Red Dead Redemption is such a terrific title. Rockstar is one of the most consistently creative and talented developers in the industry, and their commitment to excellence shows in each and every product. Although this is said of almost every single new Rockstar product, Red Dead Redemption is arguably their best effort to date, if only because it distills all of the lessons they've learned from their previous titles into an engaging, expansive, and enthralling world.

Red Dead Redemption es el mejor videojuego Sandbox de la historia, y su legado tardará en ser superado. Lo nuevo de Rockstar es elegante, tiene clase, cuenta con una ambientación cuidadísima y es un videojuego que rinde culto a los clásicos westerns del cine con un título a su altura. Lo mejor que se puede decir de un lanzamiento es que gustará por encima de géneros y modas; y la aventura de John Marston es tan atemporal, innovadora y maravillosa que es capaz de generar admiración sin importar edad, gustos o plataformas… será imprescindible para todos.

Every aspect of this game is heavenly. You'll be drawn in immediately and soon find yourself unable/unwilling to pull yourself out of this very real, rich, alive world that Rockstar has created. Excellent gunfights, strong characters and plenty of room for expansion makes Red Dead Redemption one of the best games of 2010.

At the outset Red Dead Redemption promises to be GTA on horseback. Several hours later it goes on to fulfil that promise and then top it. This is so much more than a mere retooling of Rockstar's tried and tested open world formula – it's an artful take on a world long lost, an evocative paean to not only the Western genre but also to the beautiful expanse of the American landscape. Even better though is that under that remarkable feat is a game that's been refined and revitalised, setting the open world genre free and creating an experience that's quite likely to be one of this year's very best.

Look, here comes the hyperbole; you'll have to excuse us on this one, but Red Dead Redemption surely deserves heaped praise: this is a momentous gaming experience; one that marries artistry with supreme design rarely seen. If there's a textbook on how to be referent to a classic genre while always pressing forward, Red Dead Redemption is the byline. Wonderful.

To succeed where other Western games have failed, Red Dead Redemption deftly recreates a sandbox playground of a tumultuous historical period swept away by technological progress. The game perfectly captures the expansiveness of frontier life and the gritty gunplay of spaghetti westerns, rightfully earning its place alongside the great Western films and the best Rockstar games.

I don't know what else to say about this game and I'm sure I forgot to mention something, that's how big this game is! But I can't say it enough: this game is amazing! It's the total package: it has a fantastic single player story (with great voice acting) and some of the best multiplayer that I have experienced so far in a sandbox type game. With all the great games that came out the same day as RDR, I highly recommend this game over the other ones hands down and that is hard for me to say because the other games are pretty amazing as well. But if you have to only choose one, choose Red Dead Redemption because you really can't afford to miss this one! It has set a new standard for sandbox games.

Puede que Red Dead Redemption no tenga el impacto de un Grand Theft Auto al no suponer una sorpresa ni una revolución en el género, pero es sin duda el mejor juego que ha adaptado esa fórmula, y a muchos usuarios, por el particular carisma de su ambientación y sus personajes, les conquistará completamente. Para todo fan de las películas del oeste, especialmente de las más revisionistas como Sin Perdón o los clásicos del Spaghetti Western, Red Dead Redemption se convertirá inmediatamente en una joya que jugarán durante horas y horas. Rockstar ha cogido la fórmula ganadora de Grand Theft Auto y la ha adaptado al Salvaje Oeste, como se esperaba, pero también ha exprimido todo el jugo que puede dar esa ambientación, adaptado y homenajeado los mitos y los iconos de esa época y las películas sobre ella, combinándolo todo para lograr uno de los mejores juegos del año que, por su carácter único, no tiene rival, y que todo el mundo, salvo quien aborrezca el género, debería probar.

Nos hemos dejado muchas cosas en el tintero. Pero queremos que os quede claro que este juego no debéis dejarlo pasar, es un imprescindible con mayúsculas, uno de los mejores juegos que vais a poder encontrar en Xbox 360, como mínimo entre los cinco primeros dejando aparte gustos personales. Aunque no os guste la temática del western es un juego que tenéis que probar por todo lo que transmite y la excelencia con la que ha sido realizado. Eso sí, no está recomendado a menores de 18 años, tened cuidado.

Red Dead Redemption is a must-play game. Rockstar has taken the Western to new heights and created one of the deepest, most fun, and most gorgeous games around. You can expect the occasional bug or visual hiccup, but you can also expect a fantastic game that offers the Western experience we've all been waiting for. Red Dead Redemption is a complete game in every sense -- both the single player and multiplayer modes are excellent -- and still manages to offer an attention to detail you rarely see from a game of this scope.

So, overall, I give RDR a 9.6, purely because it is an awesome game, but there are a few, well, glitches that have been found by the community since release. Sure, we don't expect developers to be perfect all the time, but seriously, wrong models? Flying horses? It just blows your mind.

There are so many fun things to do in this game. From shotly after it starts you realize that Rockstar really hit this one out of the park. When the side mission things are keeping you from completing the main story, you know they have done something right. Great music, great voice work, amazing visuals this game has it all and manages to carve itself a nice little spot among a crowded sandbox genre.

Many people like to call Red Dead Redemption “GTA 4 in the Wild West” and I honestly do not mind the comparison. Rockstar did a Grand Theft Auto like job with this game in that it’s a total sandbox game with great dialogue. The graphics and visual design of the game works very well and looks awesome. All the interactions with different animals and the landscape creates’ a world that is wild and intense at times. Rockstar gives you a character in John Marston that you love, even though he does bad things. Along his journey you will grow a fondness for Marston; through the highs and lows, in a similar fashion to Niko Bellic from GTA 4. If you like westerns and are fond of epic adventures, this game is a must have for your collection. From the open-world environments, to more than 20+ hours of gameplay and an epic multiplayer that will have you spending hours upon hours enjoying, Red Dead Redemption is clearly a title well worth the sticker price.

Red Dead Redemption is perhaps not only the best game Rockstar has made thus far, but it's one of the best games we've ever played - an unreserved work of genius. It has its flaws and is by no means perfect, but Red Dead Redemption is to the Western what GTA is to the crime genre and should be held up as a definitive example of how open-world games are supposed to be made.

The full extent of Rockstar San Diego's vision is so fully realised here, that it's difficult to think they've been sitting on this gold mine for so long. I've actually avoided so much of what makes the game tick because I know that, for me, the true engagement came directly from the actual experience, and so much of all this being thrown at you unawares makes that up. From a reviewer's perspective, this is a blockbuster waiting to happen, but from a gamer's perspective, this is an experience waiting to happen; an engaging and rich experience rarely found in the multi-billion dollar world of videogaming.

One of the most expensive games ever made, it is clear from the attention to detail, lavish visuals, outstanding acting, and rich story that the money was well spent. Red Dead Redemption is the best Western game ever made, and certainly one of the top games of this year. It is Rockstar's most successful iteration of the open-world concept it helped to define with GTA. Its marriage of history, story, art direction, and wry social and cultural commentary make playing Red Dead Redemption a very rich and rewarding gaming experience.

When you play the free roam version online you actually get to level up your character, which will allow you to use better horses and weapons. In competitive mode all the players have the same attributes, which means youre going to need to rely on your skills in order to win the games. Overall Red Dead Redemption is an amazing game that is going to go down as the best Wild West game ever made for any gaming console. You can easily spend over 100+ hours playing both the single and multi-player modes in this game, which means your paying pennies per hour for amazing entertainment.

In the end, if you haven't played or at least looked into this game, you need to do yourself a favor and do it! It's the perfect setting for a video game set in an open world and it's done by arguably the best team to do it, and they definitely pulled it off. Red Dead Redemption is exactly what you'd expect from the Old West and brings you on an adventure you're going to enjoy every step of the way, either on the path they've set out for you, or on the one you carve yourself! Months of gameplay and challenges lie ahead in a game that brings entertainment, value and good old fashion cussing! And I sirs and madams, couldn't be enjoying myself more.

How ever you go, either with the Xbox360 or PS3 version. Red Dead Redemption is more than just some basic concepts with a new coat of paint. Standing on it's own two feet, with out comparing it to anything else from Rockstar's past games...(Because of course something years later sure as heck should be better.).....Red Dead Redemption is a stellar game. Such a basic concept brought to quality heights by the sum of it's pieces and how they mesh together. Sure some of the acts and side missions may smack of representativeness, but there is enough there to balance it out to a truly enjoyable gaming experience.

Es ist in einem Review nicht möglich alles aufzuzählen was Red Dead Redemption ausmacht. Ebenso ist es kaum möglich den Titel zu beschreiben ohne Superlative zu benutzen. Doch was Rockstar Games hier auf die Beine gestellt beschert uns ein einmaliges Spielerlebnis. Hollywoodreife Zwischensequenzen die nahtlos ins Spiel übergehen und dabei eine Geschichte transportieren die jedem Edelwestern gut zu Gesicht stünde, werden dem Spieler in einer technischen Perfektion dargebracht für die man kaum genug lobende Worte finden kann.

Between the Free Roam and competitive modes, there's enough great multiplayer content to keep you playing Red Dead Redemption long after you've watched the credits roll at the end of the superb single-player mode and gone back in to finish up any optional challenges and missions that you missed. This is an outstanding game that tells a great story with memorable and occasionally laugh-out-loud-funny characters. Think about great moments that you remember from spaghetti Western movies, put them all into one 20- to 40-hour epic feature, and picture yourself in the starring role. Now you have some idea of what's waiting for you in Red Dead Redemption.

Red Dead Redemption is zonder meer een topper. Enkel en alleen het verhaal van de game houdt je minstens veertien uur bezig, random events en minigames niet meegerekend. Reken hierbij de uitgebreide multiplayer en dan mag je toch rekenen op een gameplay van gemakkelijk twintig uur. Nog een kleine tip: speel zeker het verhaal uit tot het einde, want een aantal verrassende wendingen zullen zeker bekoren.

Red Dead Redemption takes the open-world action genre to a slightly different setting with first-rate storytelling, appealing and often amusing dialogue, a well-thought-out plot, top-notch presentation, a superb atmosphere worthy of any Western flick and, of course, decent gameplay. It comes down to one simple fact. Players won't be talking about this game much. Instead, they'll be playing it. And that's how it should be. Aside from a few sporadic AI glitches, I cannot honestly find anything really wrong with this game. I do regret that Rockstar didn't have the backbone to experiment with the gameplay some more and perhaps try to offer a different twist to the all-too-familiar GTA free-roam mechanics. Regardless, the game is fine as it is. Don't skip it. You'll most likely end up regretting it.

So what does the above score say taking that into consideration? Even the online multiplayer is great; the various host of modes makes everything feel fresh, you really have to take your time and be precise, and there were only a few technical hang-ups during my matches. Never did find a Rockstar employee, though… Anyway, Red Dead Redemption is a triumph and although not entirely devoid of an assortment of little flaws and annoyances, it’s still one of the best of the generation. Saddle up and ride!

The conclusion is simple: Red Dead Redemption has kept all the good aspects of GTA IV, added with a fantastically deep and atmospheric Wild West setting, an epic and credible story, and finished with a shitload of extra possibilities and a presentation that gets equalled by only few games. A must-have for everyone!

Red Dead Redemption è un titolo complesso, maturo, capace di migliorare sotto molti aspetti quanto Rockstar era riuscita a fare con GTA IV. Un titolo lungo, divertente e vario capace di far rivivere le atmosfere viste in centinaia di lungometraggi diversi, condite però della maestria dei ragazzi di San Diego di graffiare, attraverso personaggi forti ed iconici. Tecnicamente ispirato, forse Red Dead Redemption pecca in innovazione, dove quel “Grand Theft Auto nel west” pesa molto di più di quanto avremmo voluto. Rimane comunque un titolo da provare, giocare, ma soprattutto vivere, grazie alla minuziosità con la quale è stato ricostruito uno spaccato del selvaggio west.

Um es kurz zu machen: Rockstars Wildwest-Epos ist ein großartiges Spiel. Story, Spielwelt und Atmosphäre sind überragend. Das rechtfertigt locker einen Hit. Dass die Wertung nicht höher ausfällt, liegt vor allem an der Technik. Außerdem bietet der virtuelle Wilde Westen nicht so viel Zeitvertreib und Unterhaltung wie Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV. Generell ist es ein Spiel, für das man sich Zeit nehmen sollte. Die tragische und oft auch komische Geschichte braucht Zeit, um sich zu entwickeln. Ausritte - und von denen gibt es viele - dauern oft minutenlang. Dafür werdet ihr mit einer Wildwest-Stimmung belohnt, die auf Konsole Ihresgleichen sucht. Story und Stimmung - die sind in Red Dead Redemption ganz groß. "GTA im Wilden Westen"? Nein, nicht wirklich. Eher "Ein Western zum selber spielen". Nachfolgend findet ihr eine genauere Auflistung unserer Pros und Kontras aus unserem Red Dead Redemption-Test.

Red Dead Redemption is perhaps the ideal sequel; it took everything that was less than spectacular from Red Dead Revolver and cast it aside. Crossing the distinctive western aesthetic with the open world style of Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar have managed to produce a cinematic new blockbuster franchise, complete with compelling co-operative multiplayer, and oozing replayability.

Red Dead Redemption has taken a genre that few have had the guts to venture into and thrown it straight into the spotlight. It’s an all-round complete experience, be it single player or multiplayer, which ever your preference you won’t be disappointed. It oozes quality from every orifice, the attention to detail, the killer soundtrack the masterpiece of character design, it all slots together to create a game that surely must be touted as potential game of the year material. This isn’t just the best game I’ve played all year, but it’s also the best piece of digital entertainment, I’ve had the pleasure of inducing on myself. A phenomenal masterpiece of game creation.

Red Dead Redemption est au final tout ce qu’on attendait de lui : un excellent GTA-like sauce Far-West doté d’une ambiance ultra travaillée et d’un contenu gargantuesque en solo. Le titre de Rockstar se paie même le luxe de compenser ses grosses carences techniques par une esthétique proche de la perfection et ses allers-retours incessants par un univers vivant et cohérent doté d'un écosystème bluffant. Red Dead Redemption fait donc figure de nouvelle référence du genre, quelques encolures devant un GTA IV qui prend du coup pas mal de rides. Dommage que la partie multijoueur semble pour le moment servir d'avant goût en attendant le tas de DLC à venir, le potentiel paraissant à l'heure actuelle largement sous exploité. Quoi qu'il en soit, Red Dead Redemption reste bien le gros titre qui tache de ce milieu d’année. Enjoy !

Red Dead Redemption is an excellent game and one of the best 2010 has produced so far for Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. The novelty of the side quests and activities begin to drag after a few hours, but a top notch main mission which must be experienced to be appreciated and additional multiplayer options online more than make up for the slack. Grab the reins and head off to the dusty trails of New Austin. Look past the odd glitches as they don't detract from the majority of the experience which is well worth your hard earned cash.

Si GTA a servi de base et de source d'inspiration, l'aventure de ce western spaghettis se suffit à elle-même car magistralement mise en scène. Doté d'une ambiance et d'une personnalité hallucinantes, RDR est un titre parfaitement équilibré, rendu extrêmement jouissif grâce à l'ingénieux mécanisme appelé Sang Froid. Le moindre espace de son terrain de jeu d'une taille record a été utilisé et aménagé à bon escient et aucun moment d'ennui est imposé au joueur, même durant les déplacements les plus insignifiants. On pourra simplement regretter que les interactions urbaines soient rendues gadgets par une difficulté un poil inférieure à nos espérances. Ceci étant, Red Dead Redemption s'impose comme un titre accessible à tous, capable de faire aimer les westerns à quiconque y était allergique et finalement, comme le GTA-Like de ce premier semestre 2010 à posséder impérativement. Merci Rockstar.

If you've ever whistled the tune to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, if you've ever described beans on toast as 'cowboy food' - hell, even if you just enjoyed City Slickers - we strongly suggest that you grab a fistful of dollars (or equivalent currency) and pick up Red Dead Redemption. You won't regret it, partner.

Se non disprezzate completamente le atmosfere western e i giochi sandbox, non posso che consigliarvi a gran voce l'acquisto di Red Dead Redemption. Rockstar ha creato un vero capolavoro. E... mi raccomando! Il gioco non finisce finché con compaiono i titoli di coda!

But this sandbox extends beyond the tale’s natural climax. If the story leads us through well-trodden territory – blending The Good, The Bad And The Ugly’s adventurous sweep with Unforgiven’s morality, as played by Deadwood’s perverts and bigots – the greater game is more digitised Westworld: an impeccable example of world building begging to be interrupted with a bullet. As one character notes: “I dreamt of documenting the last days of the old west. The romance, the honour, the nobility! But it turns out it’s just people killing each other.” There’s no shame in that.

And yet throughout our favourite moments were when playing as a real cowboy. Roping stallions and herding mewling cattle in the rain are hugely evocative and perfectly presented. Thank heavens for GTA clones.

All told, Red Dead Redemption is a stellar title. While I have some issues with the story and characters, the simple joy of interacting with this world more than makes up for those complaints. Add in a compelling multiplayer component and you have one hell of a game.

Red Dead Redemption sets the bar high this year with its fascinating take on the Wild West. From the beautifully crafted and finely detailed setting, to the intriguing characters that reside within, this game is definitely one that needs to be experienced. Minor issues aside, it's also a technically sound title with a high quality and authentic feel to it that few other games can match.

Am Ende sind es die Charaktere und ausgefeilten Hauptmissionen, die aus einem "GTA im Wilden Westen" ein für sich stehendes, großartiges Spiel machen. Dazu kommen die schönsten Pferde der Spielegeschichte, eine große Freiheit für den Blick und euer Vorgehen im Spiel -- aber auch der eine oder andere, für die GTA-Serie ungewohnte Detailschnitzer. Wer nicht gerade eine krankhafte Aversion vor dem Wild-West-Szenario hat, kommt als Volljähriger an diesem Spiel kaum vorbei.

Surprisingly few games have attempted to realise this most captivating period of American history, and fewer still have managed to nail it so convincingly. In Redemption, Rockstar have succeeded in taking an over-subscribed genre and realising it with such atmosphere and boundless possibility that it fluently captures the thrill of the Wild West, and with that they’ve taken the Red Dead franchise into the big league, proud to stand alongside the best work they’ve ever produced.

Red Dead Redemption is a stunning game that clips its spurs on the way through to the finishing line. John Marston is one of the year’s best characters so far and aside from more than a few glitches and some mundane horsey riding, Red Dead Redemption is one of the best open-world games you’ll play this year. And next year.

The characters are very convincing and have a lot of things that will make you love and hate them. The story line while at times is a little farfetched is usually enough to keep you entertained throughout the missions. There is tons of downloadable content for this game including the Undead expansion where you fight off hordes of zombies to save your wife and kids, the co-op mission pack and the liars and cheats multiplayer pack. It’s a little bit old now but I know it rocked my entire summer last year, if you have time and money to burn I would recommend this game. I might go back and play it all night actually.

Wer einen grandiosen Ausblick genießen will, wer sich in einer Vielzahl aus Missionen, zufälligen Ereignissen, Herausforderungen sowie Minispielen verlieren will und wer mit einer treffsicheren Hommage über die Klischees des Spaghetti-Westerns liebevoll schmunzeln will, der muss Red Dead Redemption spielen! Rockstar hat den bisher stimmungsvollsten und umfangreichsten Wilden Westen erschaffen. Die idyllischen Ausblicke und das Gefühl von Freiheit sind bemerkenswert. Doch gerade angesichts seiner äußeren Brillanz und des enormen spielerischen Umfangs ist es eine so bittere Pille, dass die Macher im Kern nur einen geradlinigen Shooter präsentieren. Entscheidungen haben keinerlei Einfluss auf die Handlung und das Gros der spielerischen Aktionen führt zu keinem nennenswerten Ergebnis.

Malgré quelques lacunes scénaristiques, un côté rébarbatif sur certains aspects, et des environnements aussi vides que magnifiques, Red Dead Redemption réussit à nous transporter complètement au Far West. On prend vraiment du plaisir à traverser les contrées mexicaines au galop ou à nettoyer un repère de gangsters. Au final, on se retrouve avec une véritable pépite qu’il serait fâcheux de rater, même si ceux qui s'attendaient réellement à un "GTA 4 au Far West" risquent de rester un peu sur leur faim face à ce jeu beaucoup plus contemplatif que ce à quoi Rockstar nous a habitués.

It has been said more than once that Red Dead Redemption is simply Grand Theft Auto IV with horses. There is certainly a strong case to argue there, but this is to miss much of the great success of either game. Red Dead Redemption is a wonderfully envisaged take on the spaghetti western that includes much of what you’d crave and expect of a game based in the Wild West: revenge, treasure, horses, duels and ponchos. Yes there are niggles with the shooting mechanics and reports of the occasional invisible horse, but these are easily forgiveable given the greater extent of the overall achievement. For me it is a shame that plot did not match the technical qualities exhibited by Rockstar, but for many this may well not be an issue. If you like the idea of a sandbox western then this is money well spent. In what other game can you earn a ‘dastardly’ achievement by saving a damsel in distress, then putting her on the rail road tracks to meet her fate?

Red Dead Redemption is absolutely worth picking up if you are a fan of westerns or even the similar Grand Theft Auto series. Just be wary of the flaws: peppered with bugs / glitches (hopefully many which can be patched), instanced side-missions become very repetitive, good / evil choices are pointless in the long term, a multiplayer free roam mode that’s painfully absent of life / side games, a lack of difficulty options and an unfulfilling storyline that does more to setup a sequel than weave an expert tapestry of western justice.

Rockstar should once again have pleased audiences with a deep and real feeling story that will captivate the mind even though it may feel a bit drawn out. Every sound in Redemption immerses the player into the world and the ambient music adds a pleasant touch to the whole experience of the game without becoming a distraction. While the game seems to be splendidly developed, some of the minor glitches can make playing more aggravating than amusing. These aren't game breaking technical issues, but they do hinder the entertainment aspects for both the single player and multiplayer game modes. Red Dead Redemption is a solid game and players won't feel ripped off as if it were a bottle of snake oil cure all bought from the shady merchant who just pulled into town, but it will leave a lingering thought of "the greatness that could have been Redemption." So round up your posse and rustle up some loot because this is truly an unique experience worthy of venturing West for.

The result is an exceptional Rockstar game, one that successfully re-clothes the Grand Theft Auto framework in an exciting, distinct and expertly realised scenario. But just how satisfying the formula remains after the exuberant destructiveness of Red Faction: Guerrilla, or the joyful, ad-hoc player stories born in the freedom of Just Cause 2's playpen, is increasingly under scrutiny. And even within Rockstar's own canon, there is little here for that smart young journalist to inform Liberty City about that it didn't already know. A magnificent eight, then.

In the end, Red Dead Redemption is going to please a lot of gamers who are simply starved for a new world to explore and the Wild West, even though the game takes place at the end of that era, is ripe for the taking. I found myself at times falling prey to its open world six shooting grandeur even though I grew weary of the story, only to be awakened near the end. It is the type of game that, when finished, I tried to convince myself that I liked more than I actually did. It is unclear whether or not I succeeded.

De la prezentarea superbă a mini universului western, animațiile cailor, atmosfera autentică, misiunile antrenante, puzderia de activități opționale, personajele memorabile și povestea interesantă până la încleștările intense și parteneriatele în multiplayer, Red Dead Redemption m-a cucerit într-un mod pe care nici nu mi-l puteam imagina. Are și probleme, însă părțile bune le fac să pălească. Dacă nu-l jucați, meritați împușcați.

The bottom line: Read Dead Redemption is a running attempt at a game. It’s fun when you first pick it up, but with an inverse learning curve, bug problems, and a weak story propelled forward with unlikeable characters, it doesn’t have enough going for it to warrant it beyond a bargain-bin purchase.
