This review is from: Red Dead Redemption (Video Game)
I'm late to review this game, but it's never too late to sing the praises of a game this deserving of said praise. I've been a gamer for as long as I can remember, spanning at least 25 years. I have played hundreds of games throughout that time, and I have to say that Red Dead Redemption is one of the best games I have ever played.. easily in my top 5.

John Marston is a very well developed character, and when you are in charge of him you can't help but to try and act as you think he would. It's possible to go the "dark" route and be more outlaw than hero, but you feel more obliged to be the person that the character seems to be. The missions only build on this character throughout the story, and this only helps immerse you in the world.

I found myself loving the side quests, the treasure hunting, the mini games, animal hunting challenges, and the in game economy as a whole. It added to the atmosphere of the game, making you feel as though you were really in the Wild West. This game keeps you engaged from the minute it starts until the very end. I think that you have to be the type that can appreciate a "slow burn" type of game. This game doesn't rush you through objectives or hurry through the story. This game is for those that can savor their experiences.

The environment is massive, and you can stretch the game time to countless hours if you hunt secrets while completing missions. I lost weeks to this game, and look forward to doing so again. The ending is incredible, it will affect you profoundly if you were paying any attention at all. It's a great experience, one I won't soon forget. It's a phenomenal game.
