Red Dead Redemption is probably THE PS3 game that I have to admit, had the best storyline thus far. I've played through a ton of different games on
the PS3 (some with story lines some without, Madden/NHL), and nothing really touches this plot. The character, John Marston is instantly the Chuck
Norris of video games and it is easy to fall in love with his goals in the game. The game play? Smooth and flawless - Man, I've never played a 3rd
person shooting game that was so fun. GTA 4 was good (personally like San Andreas better), but still neither quite touch RDR. The only thing that
would make the game better is if it had the ability to destroy any building with a sledge hammer (a la Red Faction: Guerilla). Even at that, it's a
bit unrealistic but fun as all heck. This map is pretty large, takes a while to travel from place to place on horseback. There is a fast travel
feature while camping or riding in a stage coach. Probably the number one thing that shocked me the most was the wildlife they incorperated in the
game. I forget how many wild animals exactly you can encounter but my gosh...All of them can be killed and looted for items you can sell to the shop
keepers in the game. It's just amazing.
Bottom line, RDR for either 360 or PS3 is a must buy...seriously. Go now. Buy it.
