Fantastic Genre Blending Shooter,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
This particular iteration of Red Dead Redemption is the best value because it includes the add-ons/DLC as well.
Red Dead Redemption is a shooter that blends in elements typically featured in other genres and/or overlooked by shooters. If you're into grinding out achievements, stop reading reviews and buy this game - you'll love it. If you're not into grinding, that's cool too because there's plenty of story to keep you fully engaged without having to farm kills. There's a ton of mini-games within the game (including Texas Hold'em and BlackJack) that are pretty fun and the characters are surprisingly well developed. And as is the case with most games these days, you get to choose whether you play a good guy or a bad guy, and your choices impact the way the game plays.
Overall I give this game a 9/10.
