Red Dead Redemption Player's Guide
Red Dead Redemption is a cowboy era sandbox style game from Rockstar, in the same vein as Grand Theft Auto. Of course you won't be stealing any cars in the wild west, but there's plenty to do! Read on to find out more.
What Is Red Dead Redemption?
Produced by Rockstar and released in 2010, Red Dead Redemption is the spiritual successor to Red Dead Revolver. The game takes place in 1911, following the decline of the wild west. You play as John Marston, an outlaw extorted into turning to the side of law, offering his services as a mercenary and bounty hunter to seek out his former gang members.
With an average rating of 95% on Metacritic and other game ranking sites, Red Dead Redemption is not a game to be missed. It's won several game of the year awards and has received high praise across the internet. Being an open world sandbox style game, there's tons to see and do as you progress through the main and side quests the game has to offer. If the core game isn't enough for you, there's even DLC to play through for added fun.
Some features of Red Dead Redemption include the industry-standard morality system under the guise of "honor," cover based shooting with blind fire, "ride-by" shootings, and all the trappings of an old west style game -- public hangings, shootouts, dangerous animals in the wild, and gambling.
