Review: Red Dead Redemption
Rockstar games is one of the biggest game production companies in the world, this can be attributed to the fact that they DON’T MAKE BAD GAMES. Games such as Grand Theft Auto, Max Payne, L.A Noire and The Warriors have shaped this publisher into a serious contender in the gaming spectrum.
One of the most risky games that they have developed and delivered is Red Dead Redemption, a sandbox style game much like GTA but set in the early 1900’s in early America.
The story revolves around protagonist John Marsden who returns to New Elizabeth to hunt down members of his old gang to justice. The setting is incredible – The vast, sprawling desert of New America is just breathtaking. The horse trails and mountains are majestic and really make you envision the Wild, Wild West.
Not only are the visuals incredibly pleasing, the gameplay is astounding. Being the Wild West, naturally you ride horses; get into gun battles, skin animals and hunt, which makes the game fully immersive. There is ALWAYS something to do.
Whether you are following the missions and the storyline or just searching/riding through the harsh wilderness you will be entertained.
Released in 2010, the game has one of the best reputations and reviews from the community, reviewers and die-hard fans. Now you are probably thinking “C’mon Robbie, you sexy man, there has to be SOMETHING wrong with it”.
It’s faultless. The storyline is gripping and engaging.
The visuals are immerse and expansive.
The environment is harsh yet impressive.
Red Dead Redemption is limitless.
