I vaguely recall the original Red Dead Revolver for the PS2, but I don’t remember anything about it standing out specifically. You were a cowboy, you could shoot people, it was OK since it was by Rockstar. All that appears to be about to change however, as the sequel, Red Dead Redemption looks to be practically a new game entirely, moving to an open world format causing many to call it “The new, western Grand Theft Auto.” But I suppose it would have to be Grand Theft Horseback. Get it? Because it’s old.
This four minute preview of the game has me completely sold on it, as I can’t think of anything cooler than tracking down and hogtying outlaws, robbing trains and shooting bears in the face. I’m a sucker for any open world game, but this looks like something completely different we haven’t seen before, and I’ll be looking forward to April 30th now for sure.
