The makers of the Grand Theft Auto series are back with a brand new game in a brand new time era. Red Dead Redemption takes place in the old west in the late 1800's, but maintains the same fun gameplay and some of the same features that the Grand Theft Auto games had. You are a man who has come to the west to seek and kill a few of the men you used to ride with to get your family back safely from the government. The story of the game is very well thought out and will keep you wanting to keep playing for hours upon hours. Though the story is great, what makes this game truly fantastic is all the things you can do besides the story. Everything from going hunting for wild buffalo to robbing stagecoaches carrying belongings across the country is possible. You truly feel as though anything is possible and that you can do as you please when you want. There are consequences for your actions though so before you go killing innocent people, think about if you want the sheriff and his deputies following you on high-speed horse chases across the countryside. The graphics and sound of the game are superb and combining that with the hours and hours of extra gameplay offered, Red Dead Redemption is a must buy.
