RED DEAD REDEMPTION



05 Friday 05th February 2010


From the same stable that brought you the irrepressible Grand Theft Auto series comes the follow up to the 2004 game Red Dead Revolver. Due out at the end of April on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, Red Dead Redemption is a third person shooter centred around John Marston, a sharp-shooting former outlaw who is charged with preventing lawlessness on the American frontier from escalating further.

Like the Grand Theft Auto games, the world of Red Dead Redemption has different regions for the gamer to explore, with each of the three regions made up of towns and outposts that have individual characteristics.

Although details remain limited, the trailers that have been released show that visually the game is very impressive, with long sweeping scenic views that don’t give up any quality when encountered at close range.

The gameplay is mission based, with the action predominantly focused on shooting encounters. One of the key features of the game is that as the game progresses, the weaponry on offer becomes more advanced. So whereas the protagonist will start the game with a lowly revolver, the gamer is soon offered the opportunity of deploying more advanced weapons such as sniper rifles and Gatling guns.

From classic Wild West shoot-outs and train robberies to rustling steers and animal hunting, it seems that this game has it all. Fans of the Grand Theft Auto who endlessly wait for the next instalment of the incredibly popular series may well find Red Dead Redemption a great way to wile away the time in between.
