Red Dead Redemption takes you back to a time when guns and cowboys ruled the land. Set in the Wild West, this game allows you to relive the time when the world was full of bandits, thieves, as well as the presence of different issues like racism and immigration.

Judging by the issues this game tackles, you would think that the game would try to preach good politics and try to cloud your mind with different organizational reforms and stuff. But the developers have made the main character relatively neutral thus taking into account both sides. The main character can be both a “righter” of wrong in one scene and a typical bad guy on the next. The constant shift from one Persona to another allows you not only full capacity to control what happens in the game but it also allows you to see the effects of both actions.

It might be set in the Wild West but it also has a touch of the 20th century era. His then partners are still stuck in the era where illegal acts are considered legal while he is now living a life in a civilized world. It’s definitely fun to see how a once famous outlaw is now trying to do a somewhat good deed by tracking down his previous partners in crime. It’s like watching two worlds collide in front of you with you just glued to your seat until the epic battle is over.

Enough of the whole past meets the present; let us now talk about the rest of the things that goes on in the game. The environment is quite stunning in a sense that it actually captures the actual setting of the place. In addition, the game doesn’t just place different images and structures in the area. In the game itself, you get that sort of feeling that if you see something you surely can do something with it or you can enter it.

What really sets this game apart from the rest of its competition is its excitement factor. The game promises that at the end of each road or encounter, there’s always something that would tickle your mind. An unpredictable encounter that would make you want to delve more into it. And it’s even made more interesting with the fact that the happenings in the game are actually circumstantial. Thus, chances are, you don’t get to see them again when you cross the same path twice. Also, not everything is compulsory. These things are done simply to add excitement to the player with different rewards as well as dangers, whichever suits you.

Sometimes games are so overhyped that when you actually play the game you easily get frustrated because you expected so much from it and the game fails to deliver. This game, however, isn’t one to disappoint; although the hype could have been toned down just a bit. Nonetheless, it was overhyped for the reason that it was actually good and worth playing.
