If you've always loved spghetti westerns like "The good, the bad and the ugly" with Clint Eastwood. Then read no more and just buy "Red dead redemption" from Rockstar Games right now!

Red dead redemption is the closest you'll get to starring in "Once Upon a Time in the West". Here's violent murders, robberies and pistol duels that are just as good as what Sergio Leone would have made.

In Red Dead Redemption you're John Marston. A classic western movie hero with a raw attitude and an itching trigger finger. You're looking for your old partner. You'll decide if you want to play the good, the bad or the ugly in this saga. You make the choices.

Red Dead Redemption is based on the same open world concept as the Grand Theft Auto series from the same company. But it has it's own style and flair. A couple of hours in the saddle and you'll realize that the game is unique in its own way.

The graphics are fantastic. Long open vistas, rock formations, swampy areas of forest and much more will meet your eyes. In the wild wild west you'll constantly be confronted by desperados, fortune hunters, death, rape and robberies.

The main story line will take you about 20 hours to complete, but there's a wealth of side quests and stories in the open world. You'll ride around for hours on end taking in the scenery and exploring the game world.

Among your many options for entertainment are breaking in horses, hunting cattle thieves, robbing banks, being a tax collector, bounty hunter, wanted etc. The controls are sharp and concise and John Marston has the ability to put time into slow motion matrix-style, so that you can eliminate your enemies in true gun slinger style.em sagde Lucky Luke?

In some ways the game might be a bit too easy in the shoot outs, but that doesn't take away too much from how much you'll enjoy them. However, when you take the game online and play against other people your gun aiming skills will really be put to the test. There are many great multiplayer modes to steal your sleep: death- and teammatches, free roam with 15 players etc.

Red Dead Redemption is one of the most original games of this year and perhaps the first game in a western setting to really deliver on its promise.

You can buy Red Dead Redemption for Xbox 360 here or for Playstation 3 here
