Red Dead Re­demp­tion

XBox: The Official Magazine - - EXTRA -

The gold stan­dard of Western games. At least un­til the pre­quel comes out next month. John Marston’s truly epic tale of end-of-the-Wild-West re­demp­tion for a gun­slinger just try­ing to make his way and pro­tect his fam­ily in the new world is a clas­sic on ev­ery level. Su­pe­rior sto­ry­telling, fan­tas­tic third-per­son ac­tion and one of the big­gest open-world sand­boxes at the time, Marston’s jour­ney across the Western Amer­i­can Fron­tier and Mex­ico was like a page-turner of a book; you couldn’t put it down and, since it’s beau­ti­fully re­mas­tered for 4K, it still holds up. The game’s mul­ti­player was a su­pe­rior ex­pe­ri­ence, too. Rock­star keeps putting out amaz­ing, ground­break­ing, genre-defin­ing ti­tles, and if RDR2 is ev­ery­thing we hope for, it re­ally will be the last word in Western games.
